Hosting

Web hosting can be a confusing and frustrating thing. There’s a million web hosts out there, and many of them want to sell you a basic web hosting package for $5 per month. To the beginner or uninformed this sounds like an amazing deal! But just wait until your first “issue” pops up and you have to call tech support.

With the vast majority of hosts you’ll quickly realize that tech support is not even located within the U.S. Your call will be outsourced, and all too often that means you may be speaking with someone hard to understand, who is reading from a script.

But even when things are working right with that $5 service, your site’s performance will be compromised. That’s because it’s sitting on a server along with tens of thousands of other websites, all sharing the same server resources. This can drastically slow your site and lead to a host of other issues. When you pay $5 per month for web hosting, you’re getting what you pay for.

At Digital Sky Design, we lease our own dedicated servers that we manage and maintain. Doing this allows us to have full control over the servers, including server resources and whose websites we allow to be hosted on it. (There are websites out there that are resources hogs that you wouldn’t want on the same server as your website). It’s also worth mentioning that all of our web hosting packages are ‘managed’ hosting. What this means is that anytime an update is necessary (be it a WordPress plugin update, security update, etc.) we perform them for free. Other web hosting companies charge extra for this, and usually it ends up being quite a bit more costly.

We offer a variety of web hosting packages to fit all types of clients and websites. When you host with Digital Sky Design, you can rest assured that your website is in very good hands!
