Q1: How much will Managed Web Hosting cost for my business?
A1: Managed Web Hosting costs will vary depending on the size and scope of services required. Bandwidth, Number of E-Mail accounts, Frequency and Amount of updates or changes required, and Degree of Technical Support needed all affect pricing. if you only need a few emails for employees and your website is small and will only require minor updates a couple of times a year, then the cost can be quite low. If however, your website requires much more support, then the cost will be more.
We offer several Manged Hosting options with varying degrees of support design to fit companies of all sizes and budgets. Hosting options start as low as $180.00 per year and increase accordingly depending on the needs of each client. We eliminate to stress of managing your website so you can stay focused on your business.
Q2: If a have multiple versions of my website (i.e. Desktop, Tablet, and Mobile) will my Managed Hosting Plan cost more?
A2: Yes, as stated above, the more content that has to be modified or updated, the more managed hosting will cost. As an example, if you have three separate versions of your website (desktop, tablet, and mobile) and you want to modify an image gallery by adding or replacing images, then our staff will most likely have to generate and or resize each image to fit within the parameters of each version of your website and optimize each image as well to meet necessary SEO objectives. The workload by our staff would triple to accomplish this task and will require more time to complete therefore increasing the cost of your managed hosting plan. This assumes each site version contains nearly identical content. If however, the mobile or tablet versions are not identical to the desktop site, contain less content, and require minimal maintenance, then costs could be closer to that of traditional desktop only versions.
Q3: Can I personally make changes to the content of the website myself?
A3: The answer to this question is it depends. It depends on what program we use to develop your website. We have web design programs that can allow remote access via a dedicated login page after site launch, which could give you the ability to modify text and swap imagery but not allow any major structural changes to individual pages. However, we strongly discourage this practice due to the potential for unintended mishaps or problems. The best option for updating or changing information, graphics, and or images, is to contact our staff and have us perform the changes for you. This ensures that the process is done correctly and no harm is caused to your website. Site changes are normally completed within 24 to 48 hours after we have been notified of the desired updates. We also discourage clients from attempting to make any changes within the hosting platform itself. Lack of knowledge of and experience with working within the C-Panel could result in creating major problems and could even result in deletion of specific files or even the entire website. If certain parameters are inadvertently changed or modified, significant security issues could develop and leave your website vulnerable to attack. Any problems that may arise during attempts to make modifications, updates, or changes by you or your employees will have to be corrected by us resulting in additional costs for your business.
