We Host Websites

It might be helpful to think of hosting as similar to the fees you pay for services when you rent a campsite or a trailer hookup. Another way to look at it is, you are building a custom house but need to put that house somewhere.

In technical terms, hosting refers to the Computer that holds all the 1's & 0's that make up your website and its database and makes those 1's & 0's available to the world on demand.

 

What Is Hosting & Why Do I Need It?

A website is a collection of files & typically also a database that live on a hard drive in a computer somewhere.

That computer needs to be connected to the Internet & needs to run a collection of software (typically a L.A.M.P. environment) that provides an environment to "run" your website software. It also needs to be on & accessible all the time. Maybe think of hosting as similar to paying a monthly fee for a parking spot or campsite usage fees.

 

How Much Do You Charge?

As low as $8.25/month. As a small business, we are aware of bank charges and as a result we reward quarterly and yearly payments over monthly.

Do I Need Hosting?

Yes. Your website needs to be hosted somewhere if you want customers to see it on the Internet.

 

What If I Already Have Hosting?

If you already have a hosting solution, you may be able to skip the hosting portion, the environment you provide will need to support MySQL v5.1, PHP v5.3.1 and Joomla! 3.2 and we require root file, database and ftp level access to your account for the duration of the installation. If you've already paid for hosting elsewhere, continue to Free Consultation & mention it in the Additional Comments. We can investigate your hosting environment to see if it suitable for Joomla! 3.2.

There is one more factor to consider when hosting. How good is the support when there is a problem? In a perfect world nothing would ever go wrong. In a world that is less than perfect, what happens when things go wrong, is sometimes more important than the problem itself. What we do when presented with a problem in our business can be a defining moment and when 'what we do' is dependent on someone else, we need to know they are reliable.

That is what we have worked out in our hosting environment. A stable long term proven reliable platform. Another side bonus because we run our websites in the same environment, we will almost always know there is a problem before you. And because the web is our life blood, you can be assured that in the unfortunate event the 'things' happen, we will be the 1st on scene and the last to leave.
