Are You Spending Less on Hosting than a Cup of Coffee?

Cup of coffee
Does your business buy new products and services based solely on the lowest price?  Think about your phone systems – do you trust your business’ phone system to that $1/month VOIP system that uses a USB adapter in your laptop?  Probably not.  Today, if you buy a name-brand cup of coffee, you are probably spending well over $1 each time, and yet many companies spend less than a cup of coffee on their hosting each month.
Nerds On Site offers Business hosting that costs much more than a cup of coffee each month.  This means that we are far from the cheapest hosting, and you may wonder why your business should pay more for hosting than a couple of dollars a month.  Why is Nerds On Site more expensive, and do we offer some features that your business really needs?
The answer is yes – our Business hosting package offers features that your business needs for peace of mind.  First, our hosting comes with a full, off-site backup feature.  This means that your entire website is backed up each and every night, and the data is stored in a data center on the other side of the world from our hosting servers.  This means that even in the case of a natural disaster, we will have a backup of your website.
Second, our Business hosting package comes with 4 layers of hack protection and detection.  It can’t be over-stated how important this is, and most hosting providers do not offer any levels of hack detection or prevention.  Here are the layers that our Business hosting offers your company:

  1. We’ve partnered with CloudFlare, who puts a learning firewall in front of your website, and they block known malicious users and botnets.
  2. We’ve implemented a proprietary scanning system on our servers that regularly scans your website looking for changes, and then alerts an administrator who checks the results for malicious changes.
  3. Every day, our team checks your website’s home page to ensure that it’s still up and hasn’t been defaced by a hacker.  This review is done by a human engineer, not a computer program.
  4. Lastly, we regularly scan your website with off-the-shelf malware scanner that is designed specifically for websites.

If your site is hacked, our team will swing into action and help restore the site at no additional charge to your team.  Contact us today and we’d love to buy you a cup of coffee to discuss how we can help your business!
