Hosting

I offer hosting for my design customers and a select few designers. My service comes with 'unlimited bandwidth & server space' and has only a few limitations, click here to read them

While you can make your own site backups at any time through your cPanel, I maintain a backup of your site every 24 hours (the last backup will overwrite the previous day's) as well as a weekly (again that overwrites itself every week) and a monthly backup (that overwrites monthly). I offer phone support as well as virtual/screenshare support for your hosting questions.

You have complete control over your site with cPanel, the industry leader in hosting control panel software.cPanel is a web-based application that allows you to control and manage every aspect of your website. It is highly compatible and works well with all popular web browsers including Internet Explorer, Firefox etc. From adding sub-domains and email accounts to installing scripts, cPanel makes it all extremely simple and fast.

How you can benefit from cPanel Hosting?

High stability & Feature-rich

The demand for cPanel is very high since it provides a high level of stability and extensive features for your site. You can manage emails, add or delete domains, check for bandwidth, view web traffic details and so on. The control and flexibility provided by cPanel is unmatched.

Complete Site Maintenance

cPanel helps you look after the web directories, check your site’s backup, organize custom error pages, calculate disk space, add shopping carts and much more. It is the best software in terms of the flexibility, ease of use and control provided to maintain and administer your site.

Backup Facility

When running a large business or a heavy-traffic site, maintaining a backup is the last thing on your mind. cPanel makes this process simpler by allowing you to regularly store backups of data, images, emails and other content on your website. This is extremely beneficial since in case your website or server crashes, you can easily recover all your data. 

Web Statistics

Statistical data including the number of visitors, your site ranking, user’s experience etc can be extremely important when it comes to running a successful business. cPanel makes it possible for you to view the statistics of your site and keep a tab on important information. Based on your analysis, you can incorporate changes to improve your business performance.

Normal use and the popularity of your site is a reason to be happy… and I'm happy as well!  I will 'fit' you with a package and it will grow with you as your site grows. 
 
While I have not had a problem yet with these things, it has occurred to me that there are a few instances that will 'negate' the unlimited disk space and bandwidth. 
  • Not properly 'scaling' (72 dpi) photos for viewing on the web.  The larger the photo (not width and height but 'dots per inch'), the longer your site will take to load.  Rule of thumb, don't upload from your camera, use a free or inexpensive photo editing program and *then* upload them.
  • Using your site to host videos.  I recommend you stream your YouTube video through your site easily (and quickly) and not bog down your site (it will run faster and double as online advertising if you 'tag' your video properly in YouTube).
  • Using the site primarily for 'online storage' — I don't offer this service.  Certainly store documents and photos to be linked to, but do not use it for backup of your home computer for instance or you may incur additional hosting fees.

If you are looking to do these types of things, contact me to discuss it.  Otherwise, don't worry about it, I haven't had a problem yet.  I am just looking to cover myself in the 'worst case scenario' of a hosting customer… I am descended from five generations of NY lawyer, so it is most like in my DNA to include this disclaimer,
