Here's a fact of web life: Most web designers don't offer hosting support and services because hosting is a demanding and complex task. It requires specialized skill sets which most designers would rather have someone else provide their customers.
However, here at SiteGuy.net, we found out many years ago that offering a hosting platform provides many advantages to our customers.
You Get Enhanced Speed and Performance
Shared hosting services --the most common kind -- are just that: shared. That means that hundreds or thousands of websites are sharing resources to deliver your website to viewers. And that can mean slower and less reliable performance for your site. With our hosting platform you are guaranteed a robust suite of server resources so that your website pages are delivered reliably and rapidly. And for only $30 a month, that's a sweet deal.
We use WordPress as our design platform, together with privately developed plugins from 3rd party developers ( Plugins can be things like photo galleries, inventory modules, or design modules that enhance your site.) Often these configurations will require that the server be configured properly in order to function. On a shared server there's no guarantees, but our own server platform eliminates all conflicts.
Enhanced Email Services
Since we configure our own server, we are able to deliver more robust email services to our customers. Our standard pricing provides you with up to 10 email accounts with no additional charge.
Unfortunately, as your website grows in popularity, it becomes a more popular target for hackers as well. Using our private servers helps keep your site more secure. And that helps us all sleep better at night.
You’ll Never Outgrow Our Server
Our hosting plans are easily scalable. Although we start you off with the minimum amount of resources you need, we can easily increase your hosting plan to accommodate your needs. Only pay for what you need, and we'll work with you as you grow.
This alone is enough to host your website on our more advanced server platform. You need your website to be available all the time. Why have a downed or painfully slow site because a neighboring site on a shared server is getting more traffic and therefore eating into your server resources? Our hosting environment guarantees you 99.9% uptime.
