Nonprofit Hosting

We offer hosting, but before diving into what we offer let’s talk about what hosting is in the first place.

What Is Hosting Exactly?

A website is made up of a combination of files.  When someone comes to your website they need to be able to access those files.  When we talk about hosting, we’re talking about space on a server that stores all of your files so people from all over the world can access them when they visit your website.

Why Clients Like Hosting with Us

Just because we build your website doesn’t at all mean you have to host with us.  But here are some of the reasons many of our clients like to do so:

  • Personal Support - You’ll have our office phone number, our personal email addresses and our cell phone numbers.  If you ever need support, you won’t be sitting on hold with a large hosting company; you’ll be talking to us.
  • Monthly Updates – Website software is updated constantly to improve both security and performance.  We include the cost of monthly security and performance updates in the price of our hosting to ensure you’ll always be running the most up-to-date version of your website software available.
  • Daily Website Backups – We understand the peace of mind that comes along with knowing your data is backed up.  That’s why we store daily database backups for the last month and weekly full site backups (including your files and database).  And we store these backups on Amazon Servers all over the world.
  • Know Your Digital Neighbors – Since we have our own virtual private server, we can ensure your website isn’t sharing space with any shady or risky websites.  Knowing your digital neighbors helps reduce the risk you face of someone else bringing down your website.
  • 99.9% Uptime – In the last 12 months, we’ve had 99.9% uptime.  We monitor our websites and, in the rare event our sites go down for whatever reason, we’re on the phone with our hosting partner typically before any of our clients know something is going on.  If you have any questions about our uptime or how we monitor our websites, feel free to reach out.

What We Offer

We do all our hosting on a virtual private server, which means most of your server resources are shared only with our other clients.

We know hosting is complicated, so we’ll help you figure out which hosting package is the best fit for your organization.  We also make it easy to switch your plan at any time.
