Web hosting

Don’t settle for anything less than stellar

“Ever since the Industrial Revolution, investments in science and technology have proved to be reliable engines of economic growth.”

– Neil deGrasse Tyson

For speed, reliability, and security purposes, we leverage Amazon Web Services to host all the websites we develop and manage. This means our clients benefit from the same cloud hosting technology as Fortune 50 sites as well as the hottest tech startups on the planet.

Just a few of the benefits of our hosting service includes:

Monitored servers

Websites need to be up and running 24/7, which is why our hosting plan includes around-the-clock server monitoring through our service provider.

SSL

An SSL certificate is important because it creates a secure, encrypted connection between your web server and your site visitors.

Managed services

We handle all the technical aspects of hosting WordPress. We’ll take care of updates to WordPress’ core software and all your plugins. Meanwhile, we provide proactive security, and advanced tuning for optimal speed and performance under load.

Server protection

We utilize the industry standard open-source web application firewall (WAF), which means we block things like code injection attacks. In addition, we utilize custom rate limiting, which means limiting the bandwidth to a particular category of traffic or connection type. This greatly reduces the chance of a denial of service attack succeeding.

On top of all this, we also utilize real-time system malware scanning, constantly looking for things like trojan horses, viruses, worms, keyloggers, spyware, and adware. And finally, a network edge filter keeps out much of the nefarious traffic before it can even come near our servers.

High availability

You want your website to get as much traffic as possible, and it’s important that your servers are equipped to handle unexpected traffic spikes. Without the necessary safeguards and resources in place, a traffic surge can slow your site down or even crash it. Fortunately, Amazon’s vast server resources easily absorb traffic surges.

Backups

Your entire site and database is backed up daily and stored on Amazon s3. This gives you the option to download or restore a copy with ease. And because we store your backups for two weeks, you can easily revert to a copy from the previous week if you need to.

Content delivery network

A global network of servers delivers images, video and other content formats — ensuring your website visitors receive the fastest load times. All of our plans come with our CDN built specifically for WordPress. Your assets are served according to the provider which has the closest location to your site’s particular visitor. For example, if your visitor happens to be accessing your site from Singapore, your site will be delivered by a server there. Having multiple providers on the backend means more efficiency and faster load times for your users.

Enterprise-level spam protection

Akismet is an advanced hosted anti-spam service aimed at thwarting the miscreants of the web. It efficiently processes and analyzes masses of data from millions of sites and communities in real time. To fight the latest and dirtiest tactics embraced by the world’s most proficient spammers, it learns and evolves every single second of every single day.

Informative user manuals and video tutorials

We provide all of our website clients with easy-to-understand user guides that explain everything from adding images to blog posts to analyzing the SEO strength of your content. For a more hands-on experience, our team also holds frequent WordPress training seminars that walk clients through the process of managing their site.
