We Don’t Sell Unicorns
We believe that our success depends on our ability to provide customers with quality service that not only meets our stated commitments but also meets and exceeds customer expectations.
What We Do?
Our managed web hosting and maintenance service is different and priced a bit more than the standard hosting packages offered by companies like BlueHost, HostGator, DreamHost, and GoDaddy. With standard hosting, you are responsible for software and security updates, backups, account and password issues, and monitoring your website. Our fully managed services take care of almost everything for you.
Take a look at the chart below to understand what you should expect at each price point, regardless of the provider.
What Does It Cost?
The average cost for standard hosting at a traditional company is about $20/month. This provides hosting space on a server and bandwidth for the traffic that visits your website. There are additional costs for everything else including backup storage, uptime monitoring, search engine optimization, software updates, content updates, feature changes, etc. When you consider that most webmasters charge between $60 and $150 per hour, and a basic website requires at least 1-2 hours worth of checkups and maintenance, expect to pay a minimum of $120 to $300 per month.
If you rely on quick turnarounds, resiliency, high availability, reporting, support for the latest browsers, and the best performance, you should expect to pay a minimum of $1500 – $2000 per month. Note that this cost is significantly less expensive than hiring a full-time staff person to manage and maintain a website.
For some customers, a basic no-frills plan works well. For others who depend on their site, a mid-tier to upper tier plan provides the services and response time that keeps their business running.
If you’d like to discuss your current services, send us an email and we’ll make sure that you have the plan that works best for your budget and business.
Remember, regardless of the plan you choose, we are committed to delivering the best service possible. Your success is our success!
