– Exclusively for Piggybank Clients –
Having the best website is one thing. Having a great website that loads fast, is secure from hackers and that you have full access to is another…
First off, let’s be clear…Our Clients are free to host their websites wherever they want. That’s part of our 100% Walk-away Control promise. Unlike some, we do not insist or strong-arm our Clients into which web hosting provider to use.
But we know that, for business owners who are serious about their online marketing, the choice of web host is critically important to that success:
- Security. We have multiple firewall layers to let the good traffic in and keep the bad traffic out.
- Nightly off-site back-up of the entire server with multiple roll-back points PLUS secondary back-ups of your WordPress site on a scheduled basis.
- Optimized for WordPress. WordPress has its own quirks—especially around security and database performance—that we regularly optimize our server for.
- Faster. A website’s loading speed is a critical ranking factor with the Search Engines. The two factors that determine a site’s load speed are: (1) how it’s been coded and (2) the server it’s being hosted on. We’ve built our server to have way more processing power and bandwidth speed than the sites we host need.
- Webmail. Securely access your email from any web browser using RoundCube or Horde webmail.
- Professionally monitored 24/7. Our dedicated server is monitored, under contract, 24/7. If there are any issues, our amazing server admins are on it.
- cPanel dashboard. cPanel is the most popular and easiest to use hosting dashboard available.
- Less expensive to develop on. When we work on a slow host or a host that dogs us with problems, it takes us longer—often hours longer—and that translates into a higher bill. We’ve dealt with so many “bad” hosts, that we even charge more for our maintenance plans when a Client isn’t on our hosting just because of the extra hassles.
- 50% Discount on our annual maintenance plan.
- Canadian based.
- FREE SSL Certificate from Let’s Encrypt.
- FREE switch of your website from your old host to us. We’ll look after all the details of getting your site moved over.
I get that, unless you work with servers as part of your daily job, most people are deciding on a web host based on such superficial (and misleading) things as price and promises of “unlimited” bandwidth and storage space. We’re certainly not the cheapest web hosting option (nor are we the most expensive) but I believe that—for serious businesses—we are easily the best value.
We had our web hosting server built to please our own demanding requirements. This quality of hosting simply isn’t available in any of the public shared hosting providers out there. You can only get this calibre by building it yourself (or hosting privately with us).
There is a very important catch with our web hosting
We don’t hang up a shingle offering hosting to “Joe Public”. In fact, the only way you can be hosted with us is to be one of our Clients. All of the sites hosted with us are actively maintained and monitored by us. That means, we can fine-tune our hosting just the way we want to achieve maximum performance and security.
100% Walk-Away Control
Our commitment to you is that once your website goes live, we’ll send you a “Website Control Sheet”. On it, will be all the login credentials you need to move your website at any time without the need for so much as a phone call or email to us.
