Save time and money on hosting

Your time is valuable. Let us take care of setting up your domains, hosting, and email. You’ll save money in the long run anyway.

Pricing

We charge a little more than the discount hosting providers like GoDaddy. But if you look at the fine print under their introductory prices, you’ll see that after the first year you’ll be paying more than you thought, and getting inferior services and horrible support. We know… we used to be GoDaddy customers. You’re better off paying us a little more, getting better service, and letting us take care of the details.

Server software

This is the software that handles the requests for Web content from a visitor's browser.

Apache + HTTP/1

They use Apache server software, which is older and slower.

Nginx + HTTP/2

We use newer server software that is designed for reliability and speed. HTTP/2 technology speeds up page loads.

Static Content Caching

Caching quickly serves a saved copy of frequently requested content without having to perform time-consuming operations like querying a database.

No

Their page requests take longer to handle because the server needs to connect to the script and database for each page.

Yes

We can set up your site to cache and quickly serve static files so they don't take any processing. We also set the browser cache so that the same page isn’t loaded several times.

DDoS-protected DNS

Using our DNS service for your domain name nameservers protects your Website from Distributed Denial of Service attacks.

No

A DDoS attack can take down your entire site and hosted email.

Yes

Your site and email stays up and running 24/7.

Up-time and error monitoring

Continual monitoring of your Website availability and errors.

We monitor your site 24/7 to make sure it’s working properly. Errors are logged and we are notified so we can fix the problem right away without bothering you.

Knowledgeable support

When you have problems with your Website, you want to tell a live person who knows how things are set up and can fix it right away for you.

No

The tech support people you will talk to are reading off a script. They will have to submit their own ticket to the technicians who actually know how to fix the problem.

Yes

When you call or email us, you are talking with the person who set up and manages the server. We’ll fix the problem without making you stay on the line for hours.

Email support

Email a support request without taking time for a phone conversation.

No

If you have a problem, you have to call or chat and stay online with them while they try to figure out the problem.
