Many hosting companies reel you in with low, introductory pricing. You've seen the promotions, $1 a month for the first three months, $2.65 a month to start. And before you realize it, you are paying one price for the hosting, one price for Office 365 or other mail services, one price for an SSL Certificate, and if you want backups or personal security to protect against viruses or ransomware, you'll pay even more. And beware of "24/7 monitoring". All this means is that the hosting company is safeguarding their servers, NOT YOUR WEBSITE. In fact, due to many legitimate concerns, it is almost impossible for a large hosting company to scan every Website on their servers for viruses & ransomeware. Hosting companies promote such things as Unmetered Bandwidth, 100 GB of storage, and lots of RAM. The average Website, without e-commerce services, takes up less than 10 Megabytes of storage and uses so little bandwidth it's not worth mentioning. Some hosting companies charge for monitoring services, and even if it free, you oversee the monitoring and must troubleshoot the problem when your site goes down. And most websites hosted with big companies see some downtime. Fact - By the time you have an SSL installed, register for weekly backups, and opt-in for 3rd party email, most businesses hosting a website spend between $206 and $315 per year for one site, and this does not include a dedicated IP which has a lot of advantages, website security or site monitoring.

Uptime may not be crucial for some people, but for businesses such as a restaurant that depends on customers ordering food online, making reservations, or viewing menus, it can mean the difference between making a healthy profit at the end of the month. Large companies that host websites for hundreds of thousands of businesses struggle with maintaining server uptime due to server maintenance and constant updates, among other things. Overall, they do a pretty good job, but a website may still see downtime ranging from a few minutes to many hours during each thirty-day cycle. This information is not new news for developers that spend a lot of time managing websites for clients.
Palm Beach Website Hosting is a boutique provider that offers a more personalized service predicated upon quality, not quantity. We share a virtual environment supported by a significant infrastructure. And, while the technology is similar to that which is being used by other companies, our hands-on monitoring and implementation of resources is the critical factor that sets Palm Beach Website Hosting apart from most other providers. And this virtually eliminates issues that arise from placing thousands of websites on a server and managing thousands of servers.
Security for your website is paramount, and having an SSL certificate is necessary for your protection and that of others. SSL encrypts data such as credit card information a customer may input to make a purchase on your website or to sign up for an e-club membership. SSL encrypts information in transit from a web browser to a destination server, ensuring personal data stays hidden from unwanted eyes. Because of the importance of encryption, Palm Beach Website Hosting does not host unsecured websites but has made it possible to ensure that every client receives an SSL at no charge, now and for the foreseeable future.
Many website hosting companies don't want to be in the email business. Maintaining a smooth-running email service requires a lot of extra attention to detail, and constant monitoring to prevent abuse and ensure email deliverability. This is why third-party email clients are often presented as an option, and usually comes with an extra cost. And, there is always a limit on the number of email boxes you may have. Fortunately, our foundation was built upon providing email services. You'll not pay extra for your email boxes for your domain, and you'll have all the tools necessary to communicate with your customers via email.
Having a dedicated IP ( Internet Protocol Address ) for your domain has many advantages over a dynamic IP. Every computer, network system, or application connecting to the web utilizes IP addresses, consisting of a series of numbers, or in the case of an IPv6 address, numbers, and letters, used to identify and communicate with one another. When on a shared server sharing an IP address with many other websites, you are vulnerable and may, without even realizing it, fall prey to someone else's abuse. Many times ISP's, or third-party companies will blacklist an IP address thought to be responsible for sending spam from a server. A dedicated IP address helps to maintain your domain & email reputation by isolating the incoming and outgoing traffic for your website and mail.
There are many aspects to server security, from ensuring that the transit of information to and from browsers is secure to implementing the latest security measures and software, and using secure encryption. Binding your website to an SSL certificate does encrypt data, but does your host server protect against known exploits, vulnerabilities, or depreciated encryption protocols. You might be surprised to learn that the majority of websites hosted on servers have less than desirable encryption and do not utilize Forward Secrecy or Strict Transport Security. We do, and you can trust that every site hosted on our servers will be maintained using more than adequate encryption and security protocols at all times.
Most website hosting companies monitor server activity, but not your websites. If a server goes down, so does your site. Still,
there are other times when server updates or server maintenance performed renders your outdated PHP script, Plugins, or something
else useless, causing functionality issues or ceases to display certain web pages. Some companies do offer monitoring platforms,
that must be set up by you, that will trigger a response and send an email to you in the event your entire website goes down. So,
if you are in the office when an event occurs, and not home relaxing or out on the town, you'll be able to respond. If you miss the
email, at some point, one of your customers will bring it to your attention. And most monitoring offered does not check every page
you have on your site.
Fortunately, if you host your site with us, you will not experience server downtime. We also monitor every page on your site every minute of every day. If any page is compromised and ceases to display, our technical department will be alerted within 60 seconds, and take the appropriate action to resolve your issue. If a problem arises from a developmental issue on your end, a representative will contact you immediately assist you in resolving the problem.
We do not bate and switch services, or provide limited-time offers. We know how much you hate this practice.
