GREETINGS FROM VINCENT DESIGN!Information about our managed hosting services
Vincent Design offers expanded hosting capabilities through managed, web hosting services.
For clients this means access to better, more immediate and effective site edits and maintenance. It allows Vincent Design to address update requests, website issues, diagnosis and troubleshoot by direct management of hosting services. This means no hang ups with third parties, no stress about misplaced login credentials and no time lost waiting for responses from external webmaster services. A solution that is both simple and secure for all our clients.
We offer three different packages for hosting that will more than facilitate all the needs that may arise with your website.
How else will this benefit my organization?
Performance wise, there may be a noticeable difference in website speed and performance as we handle most sites we develop on VPS (Virtual Private Server). This means that you won’t be sharing space with multiple websites around the world. This is what tends to slow websites down, especially if there are larger files and images associated with the website.
Do I have to stay with Vincent Design for my hosting?
Nope! Not at all! Throughout the history of Vincent Design, we’ve always had the client’s best interest (and websites) at heart. We’ve purchased and registered many domain name and hosting account on behalf of clients who were either not familiar with the process, or had limited tech knowledge about getting a website up and running.
If you no longer wish to stay on with us for either managed web hosting or domain management, we will be happy to transfer your website to another web hosting company for you. Or if you just want to the webfiles, we can pack it all up for you and provide a link for download. Please note; hourly rates do apply for transfer/development time on these options.
Locating and acquiring a new hosting or domain company is the responsibility of the client and once we receive the account settings of the new hosting account, we will make the transfer!
How will paying for managed hosting work?
We now offer monthly payment options when you subscribe online with select credit cards. You can also pay by cheque when paying for a 12 month period.
Our payment gateway provides top of the line security in handling payments, details here: https://www.chargebee.com/security/
These costs are more than other hosting packages i’ve seen, what gives?
There is no other marketing material as important to a company or organization as a strong online web presence. We’ve discovered that paying for superior hosting provides more options, easier access, features and tools for both us and our clients. We build great websites for our clients, and our selected hosting systems will allow us to continue providing great products and services that perform well, keep your site safe, and provide you with valuable access and backups.
We are using state of the art technology with many more features. This gives the client peace of mind. Less downtime, more security, 24/7 monitoring: what more can you ask for? We provide services to organizations that have invested time and money for their websites, and therefore, require extra features to safeguard their investments. It also is in our best interest to have your website working and looking its best, mainly so we can brag about it.
We offer three packages to choose from:
Server side caching
Server side caching is the process of pre-rendering your website’s pages so that the server doesn’t have to dynamically generate a page every-time a visitor visits your site. Long story short it greatly improves your sites performance and speed.
CDN or Content Delivery Network, is a network of globally distributed servers that serve your site’s static files (images, videos, scripts, etc.) from the closest geographical node to your users. Improving website speed and performance.
An SSL certificate provides an extra layer of security for your site, by encrypting data sent between users and the server. This is required for any sites accepting payments online, and we recommend it for large sites as it increases both security for your users and credibility for your site.
