Your website is only as good as your host. It must have the same functionalities as a fast food chain… It must be FAST, it has to be serviceable, and it’s got to be convenient.
WHEN YOU CHOOSE A HOST FOR YOUR SITE, PRICE SHOULD NOT BE THE ONLY OR MOST IMPORTANT FACTOR
There is an enormous supply of Hosting platforms out there, however they all generally have one thing in common. They are in a bidding war fighting for your patronage.
This results in a poor quality service that is detrimental to your business.
Think of it this way.
You can charge rent on your house, and place the value on the HOUSE, and thus, it’s only available to 1 buyer, and they get it for x price. If you wanted to increase your income, you would either have to raise the price, OR do what all the host companies do. Charge a lower fee to everyone that wants to come in…
Problem is, they overcrowd the servers and then you get a very poor quality, slow service that also has many other risk’s involved.
Imagine cramming 1000 people into your house, and charging them each only $1 per week to live there.. You would make more than renting it out to an individual, but it wouldn’t be a good solution.
eBuilt Website Solutions offers to supply and manage the hosting for you, and ensures that we only use the best service that is fast and secure. We will maintain your online content over 3 different places to ensure maximum speed and deliverability using CDN networks, Amazon Servers and Vimeo Video Hosting.
DO WE HAVE TO HOST WITH YOU?
Not at all, If you already have a host for your website, then we are happy for you to stay there, and we can service your needs over there. However, if you would like for us to supply you with a managed service, then you can choose to host with us, where we will look after the hosting process, DNS, Emails, IP-Addesses, Security, SSL Certificates and other features involved in hosting a website.
ARE YOU THE ACTUAL HOST THAT OWNS THE SERVERS?
No, we rent private servers and then offer to supply them to our clients so that we can offer a managed service. We have learned the hard-way, that the way to make hosting only cost $4 per month is to provide a platform that is flooded with customers, and then supply minimum support, so you don’t have to have as many staff. By hosting with us, WE are your support team, so that you can always get in touch with us, and WE will look after the issue at hand.
CAN I ACCESS THE CPANEL AND POKE AROUND?
Absolutely. When you sign up with us, and we manage your server for you, we give you complete and full access to the cPanel so that you are free to come and go as you please. Just please note, that poking around can be detrimental to your site, as doing the wrong thing in the wrong place could cause everything to go haywire! That would then not be covered by our managed hosting, and would require the purchasing of ‘Tech Support’ to have us fix it all up again for you.
WHAT IF I WANT TO CHANGE SERVERS OR HOSTS?
There is no lock in contracts with us, and you are free to move your site, database and MYSQL Files at anytime you like. You will have full access to the cPanel and also the FTP File Manager so you will be able to export a copy of your site, and then install and setup on a new host if you so desire. Depending on the host you choose, they often supply a site migration, but some don’t. So that may be something that you will have to pay extra for.
