A website needs to be hosted. We have found over the years that we can work faster and more efficiently when we have a web hosting environment that is malleable to our needs. We like to have control over our clients’ hosting environment to make sure nothing bad happens, to put it bluntly. So we’ve developed our own cloud hosting program.
What’s more, we have super-robust cPanel cloud instances hosting only a few dozen sites– so you get the speed and stability of a semi-dedicated server for the price of shared hosting. It’s an industry-standard setup with a few bells and whistles that we’ve added for additional security and development speed, so if you decide you want to go elsewhere for whatever reason, you can easily migrate your site to any cPanel server.
Our cloud instances are with SoftLayer, the nation’s largest series of data centers. We’re in the San Jose data center. SoftLayer data centers are SSAE16 compliant, meeting industry-recognized requirements for security and reliability. The exhaustive, third-party certification assessment included extensive testing of the control objectives and activities at all SoftLayer data center facilities, including oversight by executive management, operations and customer service, development and information technology organization, human resources policies and procedures, and risk assessment monitoring.
Some clients may need more resources than shared hosting can provide. If that’s the case for you, we’re happy to set up and administer Virtual Private Servers, Dedicated Servers or Cloud Instances for our clients.
