As a business owner with a website, you will need Web hosting. Your website needs to be stored on a server. In other words, a server on a permanent internet connection with backup power. In short, this server is a very important part of your web presence if it fails your website stops showing.
You have a number of factors at play here. The number of different websites are sharing that same server is a big factor. Or, the resources allocated to the server and even the resources allocated to your individual hosting account.
You should ensure that you’re not fooled by the promises of massive storage or bandwidth (transfers). They mean nothing to you if there is no allocated resources to use them! Promise of high storage and bandwidth with hidden resource restrictions is like buying a car with a 1-litre fuel tank. Pointless!
The web industry is full of cheap web hosting solutions. You will find them everywhere you look! That’s because they make huge profits from their web hosting services.
Take a look around, you will find that most web hosting companies compete on price. They compete with $4.95 vs $2.95 vs $1.97, the race is on for the cheapest web hosting around.
Unfortunately, most customers who chase the cheapest price don’t have their own future support needs in mind. Their phone call will be routed through to another country when they need support. And they just don’t know it yet.
In addition, they receive ‘place card’ support queues read to them by people who don’t really understand their problem. Above all, they discover those same people don’t really care by the end of the call too.
Website Hosting prices will vary from company to company. However, our pricing is based on the value we offer alongside our website hosting and the level of customer service you want access to. As a result of us listening to clients for years about their unhappiness with most web hosting services we developed our newest product offering based on our clients’ wishes – not our back pocket. Most web designers bill you for a website and give you simple hosting. Then you rarely hear from them after that. They don’t offer to take responsibility for your site going forward. The end result of this is often a website that has been hacked or breaks for some unknown reason.
We understand that some of our clients are very busy. As a result of many conversations over the years on the matter, we have created this special Hosting and Management Plan. With our Managed Hosting, you will almost feel like Sites By Design is an extension of your business.
* [Small Web Edits] This is defined as a website change submitted via ticket or email that takes less than 15 minutes. Instructions must be short and clear. These changes will be made by our updates department.
Web Hosting is rather a technical thing to manage. As a result, most web agencies find a good hosting company to deal with and settle for reselling their products. When that’s the case you can be sure they are looking for the lowest possible cost and trying to make the maximum profit – after all, that’s just business right? At Sites By Design we own and run our own servers. No, not rented Virtual Private Servers at Amazon or Google, our own powerful servers. With a strong foundation of over 56 Physical Cores and over 500 GB’s of Memory, we have all the grunt to make sure our clients’ websites stay online and run smoothly.
