The Website Hosting & Maintenance Solution For Carpet Cleaning Websites
Everything You Need For Hosting & Maintaining Your Website For One Low Fee!
When we design or rebuild your website we also provide a full service website hosting solution that assures your website is properly maintained, continually updated, is always online and gets results.
We realize your website is one of your most valuable business assets and we take care of it with that in mind.
Our all-inclusive, full-service website hosting and maintenance service includes:
- Domain Acquisition & Renewals. We’ll secure the domain to publish your website on and pay all acquisition and renewal fees for as long as we’re hosting your website. If you already have a domain, we’ll assist you in configuring your existing domain to work seamlessly with our hosting system.
99.9% uptime of your website, meaning that it will always be up and running. Our web servers are located in a multi-million dollar data center with multiple connections to both the power company and major telecom providers (such as AT&T, Level3, UUNet & Sprint). Backup battery power supplies & diesel generators ensure no glitches in operation.
Unlimited Email Accounts
Unlike other website hosting & maintenance providers, we do not limit the number of email accounts you can have for your business. We will be happy to setup as many as email accounts as needed to accommodate your carpet cleaning business. These are dedicated email accounts utilizing your business domain and can be managed using Outlook, Gmail, Webmail or any other email system.
Also included is a webmail email system for your added convenience and security. To access, simply enter http://”yourdomain.com”/webmail into any web browser and you’re in. From there just enter your email address and password. Your webmail system also give you the ability to change your email password(s).
Inclusion in all major search engines
It is important that your website is properly submitted to and indexed in the major search engines so that potential customers in your area searching for a carpet cleaning business can find your site. Most of our clients rank well in the search engines just because of how we build their websites, but for those that need a more aggressive search engine marketing plan, or whose market is highly competitive, we can take additional steps to aggressively market your site to the search engines. (see our Online Marketing Services)
FREE Changes & Updates are included, giving you the flexibility to keep your site fresh, up to date and secure without additional costs or having to do it yourself. If you have a new special, want to add a new service, or need to add or correct any content on your site, all you have to do is call or email us to let us know what you need. As a part of your plan, we provide up to two (2) hours of webmaster services monthly (a $250 value). Changes and updates are typically completed within two business days of receiving them – or sooner! This is a valuable service and we highly recommend updating web content on a regular basis.
Website Visitor Stat Tracking Software
Website Visitor Stat Tracking is important for monitoring the activity on your website. We provide one of the industry’s leading statistical tracking packages with our hosting plan. This allows you to check in real time how many people have visited your site, how long they stayed, where they came from, what keywords they typed into the search engines in order to find you, and much more.
Friendly, knowledgeable, live customer service & tech support.
If you have questions about your website, need an update, or simply want help setting up your email, you can contact us by email anytime or call us directly Mon-Fri 8am to 7pm central time. You will receive personal attention from one of our knowledgeable tech staff. No automated voice-mail systems or email-only tech support.
- Security Updates and backups. We back up your entire website on a regular basis and keep all the software, scripts and plugins up to date. Keeping a website actively running, properly updated, maintained and protected takes work and specialized knowledge. Look at it from this perspective, if you never change the oil or maintain your car, eventually all you’ll have is a pile of recyclable materials. Neglect it long enough and eventually it will stop running. A website is very similar. Regular maintenance keeps your website running smoothly and protects one of your most valuable business assets.
- Content Management System (CMS). We provide a state-of-the-art CMS which allows you (if you choose) to manage the content of your website yourself, including adding and editing pages, blog posts, images, managing customer testimonials, adding or updating coupons and more. In fact, we encourage you to add blog posts and other content on a regular basis and your CMS makes it super easy to do. For those that like to take control of their website content, our CMS give you a easy way to take control of your content without any risk of breaking your site.
Monthly Hosting & Maintenance Subscription Fee: $49 per month
Want To Transfer The Site We Designed For You To Your Own Hosting Account?
That is always and option and we can definitely handle that for you. However, please realize that with a typical hosting account, the features as well as the management and maintenance services as listed above will not be included. Also, it’s important to know that transferring your WordPress site requires a migration of your sql database files, pages, posts, images, scripts, templates and plugins. Unfortunately site migration is not a simple copy paste process. Proper site migration takes approximately 4 hours of webmaster time and your site could be down for up to 24 hours during the migration process.
If you would like for us to handle the migration process for you, we charge a one-time fee of $299. If you have another webmaster that you would like to handle this for you, we will transfer your domain (assuming we originally purchased it on your behalf), to your preferred host and provide your site’s xml and/or zip files at no charge. Please be aware that to re-establish your site will require reconnecting your databases and well as re-installing and re-configuring your WordPress template, homepage and image files. This requires considerable expertise and experience. If you choose to go this route, we highly recommend hiring a reputable and professional webmaster.
