Reliable Web Hosting for Your Business


Three racks of servers with a globe of the earth to the left of them.

If there's one thing that both Web designers and their clients hate equally, it's server downtime.

From the client's perspective, no matter how good a site you have, it doesn't do any good if the server is down. Downtime means lost opportunities, lost business, and lost money.

From the webmaster's perspective, nothing ruins a nice day as effectively as getting angry calls from clients early in the morning because their sites are down, their customers can't access their sites, and the clients can't collect their email. I've been through this a few times when previously-good hosting companies were taken over, merged, sold, or simply went out of business without warning.

That's why I go out of my way to provide high-end, redundant, fault-tolerant cloud hosting, which I include as part of my Web design / hosting services. My servers have at least 12 CPUs and 12 GB of RAM and are built on the highest quality Intel architecture. They run the highly reliable Linux operating system (specifically CentOS 7 if you're interested) and the Apache Web server, and are part of a "cloud" of servers that are continually backed up to provide exceptional reliability, redundancy, and fault tolerance. My servers are also monitored 24 hours a day, which makes for quick discovery and correction of any problems that do occur.

I also back up all of my servers daily and store copies of the backups in two separate, secure datacenters that are located more than a thousand miles away from each other. Even in the event of a natural disaster that disrupted Internet traffic across an entire region of the country, I could still use the archived backups to quickly get my clients' sites up and running again.

Finally, my servers are located in a secure datacenter right here in New York State that has outstanding connectivity, infrastructure, and reliability. It's also staffed 24/7/365 with the best datacenter technicians I've ever had the pleasure of working with. I don't use cheap, offshore hosting with outsourced, foreign support like many free-lancers do. My entire server infrastructure is based right here in the United States and is staffed and maintained by honest-to-goodness American technicians.

The result? Exceptionally reliable hosting, and greater peace of mind all around.

I offer this high-quality hosting service, at no additional charge, with all of the work I do. Also included are several webmail clients, server-side virus scanning, firewalling, SSL certificates, and spam-filtering.

I also offer "hosting-only" accounts to clients who want to maintain their own sites, but who need a reliable place to host them. These clients receive cPanel and FTP access, along with more than 400 pre-configured scripts that they can install with a few clicks of a mouse to instantly build Web sites, bulletin boards, calendars, blogs, and so forth, with little or no knowledge of coding required.
