Quality Web Site Hosting

Fast, secure web hosting services, fully managed for you.

What’s the best type of web hosting for your website?

The best web hosting for small business depends on more than factors than volume of traffic you receive, amount of bandwidth needed or operating system you want to use.

Since small businesses mostly don’t have in house tech support, finding quality and dependable service is a big part in your search.

You need to consider quality in terms of performance, security and reliability . These are hard to evaluate compared to the statistics a web hosting package provides like x GB of storage and amount of bandwidth you get.

Website Speed

The hardware on the server your website is hosted on is a factor in how fast your website will load. Website code optimization is also an issue, but how fast your web sever can deliver pages is not something you have control over further optimizing.

High performance hardware means that your web pages are delivered faster.

 

2 good reasons to consider speed when buying a web hosting package.

Users will leave if your pages load slow.
Google uses how fast your website loads as a factor in how well you rank in search engine results.

Reliable Web Hosting

Who can afford to have their website offline intermittently? Who has the time to be sitting on hold with web support trying to get your site back online?

Do you think your users will stick around if your web pages won’t load? (How about search engines that are trying to crawl and index your website?)

Uptime statistics define how reliable the web server is. The goal is always 100% uptime.

Secure Web Hosting

It seems like every day we are reminded about data security in all aspects of our lives. Website security needs to be every site owner’s priority and responsibility.

Knowing that the web server is properly maintained and updated is a big part of website security (as is regular code maintenance).

Tech Support

Web hosting is a service, not a tangible good. Reliable and responsive tech support should be a huge factor in deciding on a web host.

Do you get an email response quickly after submitting a request? When you call, do you wait on hold, get frustrated with explaining your issue…?

People tend not to think about this when all is running well.

Finding Quality Web Hosting Providers

Running a small business myself as freelance web developer, I need  fast, dependable and secure website hosting services to do my job effectively all day.

I have worked on websites hosted on dozens of different web hosting companies.  Because of this, I get to evaluate performance, security issues and support hands on.  On top of this, I have done countless hours of research to find the best hosting service for my small business websites.

The web hosting service provider I partner with delivers business grade, secure web hosting services that I can depend on to perform day in and day out. I  offer this quality website hosting service to my clients so I can provide them best web hosting for their business so I can do my job efficiently.  It is frustrating for me to try to provide web programming services when a client’s web site loads painfully slow and support will not help with problems.  (I turn away new clients that have their websites hosted with some of the big name hosting providers because it is so frustrating and time consuming for me to do my job.)

Consider the following when looking for web hosting service:

  • Performance
  • Security
  • Knowledgeable Customer Service
  • Fast Customer Service Response Time

 

You pretty much “get what you pay for” when it comes to buying web hosting services. Cheap hosting pricing usually means cheap service provided.

What Type of Web Hosting Services Do I Need?

I have found that most of my clients do not know how to research what type of hosting they need, and end up being frustrated with the poor quality service their provider delivers. Since the quality of website hosting effects how I can do my job, I began offering web hosting packages to my clients as a value added feature to web development services I offer.

Regardless of the type of hosting you buy, quality is a factor with all of them.  Your website’s (and business) livelihood depends on your web host. If the server goes offline, delivers your pages slow, has vulnerabilities, or support does not respond timely, its effects your website/business.

“Business Grade” Web Hosting Services

Shared hosting is the common, low budget service pushed by the big hosting companies. They lure you in with gimmicks like unlimited storage and bandwidth, unlimited sub domains, unlimited email accounts… It sounds great, but do you need unlimited subdomains?? Do you need any subdomains? : )  If you’re paying a couple dollars a month for the service, how can they possibly provide a quality product and support?

I provide virtual private server website hosting. (VPS). While it still looks the same – i.e. cPanel and you can still build the same types of websites on them, VPS hosting is different from shared web hosting in several key ways.

I use the analogy of shared hosting is like a college dorm; affordable/cheap but overcrowded and have to share all resources available (showers, lounge…).  VPS hosting is more like a condo community.  Not as crowded,  and you still sharing some resources, but upgraded resources like a community pool or tennis courts.

For you to purchase VPS hosting on your own, it probably would not make much sense from a financial standpoint for a single website’s needs.  With a VPS ,you have more control over the web server configuration compared to shared hosting, but need to have the technical knowledge to manage this too.  I can offer this higher quality web hosting to you at an affordable rate. You will be happy with dependable and high quality hosting services, I am happy because I can do my job without the frustration of dealing with hosting issues and slow, unknowledgeable support.

Things to Consider When Purchasing Web Hosting Services

Speed

High performance hardware means that your web pages are delivered faster.

Reliability

With 99.996% proven uptime, your website is going to be “up” and available to your users all the time.

Security

VPS web hosting is more secure than shared hosting because resources are isolated.  Also, there are a fraction of number of accounts on the web server.

Service

The web server is monitored constantly. If an issue comes up, most of the time I find and address an issue before my customers are even aware.
