Q: I keep hearing about websites that have been hacked. What's going on??
A: In the past couple of years, clients using a "low-cost" hosting service have had their websites hacked. It's extremely important to invest in quality hosting.
None of the companies that use our shared website hosting package have ever been hacked. Ever. We use highly secure business-class Virtual Private Servers from Network Solutions (the leader in web-hosting security). In 2017 we took the proactive step of upgrading them with daily malware scanning, to protect the sites we host (including our own) from intrusions and hackers.
Site Hosting: $119.99
For a single low annual subscription rate, we'll install your site on an extremely reliable, business-class Virtual Private Server (VPS). We never place more than ten sites on a single server. We'll also provide you with a free domain-name email account.
Two Year SSL Certificate: $119.99
We strongly encourage you to add an SSL Certificate to your site. It gives your clients confidence that your site is secure. Google Chrome flags sites without an SSL Certificate as "Not Secure." Other browsers are sure to follow suit. We'll setup your domain name with an SSL Certificate for a one-time charge of $30.00. Effective January 1, 2019, an SSL Certificate is REQUIRED for all hosted accounts.
Q: What is Site Support, and what do I get?
A: Think about the apps on your iPhone or smart phone. These apps receive regular updates, and your iPhone continues to function properly.
With Site Support, we'll check your site for technical issues, and monitor the overall performance of your site. As of January 1, 2019, Site Support and an SSL Certificate are required for all hosted clients.
Using our extensive collection of analytic tools, including Microsys Web Collection and Google Webmaster Tools, we'll monitor the overall performance of your site. If something needs attention, we'll flag and fix it.
Q: Can John Schnell and Associates do some marketing for my business?
