In order to be accessed by the internet, every website must reside on a server (host). Because all hosting services are not created equal, make sure to select a service that is both accessible to your web administrator and secure keeping your internet presence strong and uninterrupted.
Consultation and Troubleshooting
With our website hosting services, you’ll receive up to 15 minutes of FREE phone consultation or troubleshooting each month, plus monthly reminders for content updates.
Software & Platform Updates
Image Matters Design provides weekly software and security updates for each of our WordPress websites. WordPress typically issues 2 or 3 critical updates annually and regular non-critical updates. We are committed to keeping our websites secure and functioning.
Support, Backups, Security
Our clients who host with us have the added security that their website files and databases are backed up a minimum of once a week and kept for seven days. If a website were to crash, we will be equipped to reinstate it. Daily virus scans are also run to minimize threats to our clients. Virus mitigation services are available if a website were to become vulnerable.
Developing a website on a different server than our own can be problematic if we are not granted full access to files and databases (most third-party hosting will not grant full access). Because of this, additional fees will be added to any website design that is not hosted on our server. In addition, there will be inevitable limitations to the quality of support, backups, and security we would be able to provide with third-party hosting.
A digital invoice will be emailed on the 1st of each month. Monthly payment is due the 15th of each month. Payments made before due date are $10 less than after due date.
NOTE: our website hosting service is a prerequisite for our package rates.
