There are lots of different hosting solutions out there from ‘cheap as chips’ overseas servers with little or no support through to more expensive local servers and some of those have little or no support. These are just hosting providers. We provide a total ‘managed hosting’ solution. To see the difference, consult the FAQ below this. We believe our hosting solution is better.
We made a decision some time ago to only build and host on our own server for these additional reasons:
- Our servers are optimised for hosting the websites we build. Others aren’t.
- We have wasted a lot of time in the past having to navigate our way through other hosting company’s back ends to get our websites installed and functioning. Some have had to have additional functionality added and going back and forward sorting this out with the hosting company’s support and explaining it to our client just takes up more time.
- Often when something goes wrong we are involved in a ‘he said/she said’ situation and more time is wasted explaining to you what has gone wrong and getting changes made.
In short, it is best for you for us to manage the website and the local hosting solution and make it a fully ‘managed’ hosting solution.
