Web Hosting, Monitoring, and more

Web hosting is just the beginning…

We are frequently asked about web hosting services. It is apparent to us that “hosting” has different meanings to people who are not web designers. Short answer: “Yes, we can host your website or you can host it elsewhere.”

Web hosting itself is relatively inexpensive. Generally, we only host the sites that we build but we are happy to consider your needs or recommend reliable hosting providers. But we can bundle hosting with other services that are just as critical to the success of your website.

Maintenance & Security

The security and maintenance of your site is critical and must not be overlooked. Added Value Web Services can provide the following:

  • Regular backup service
    Automatic, scheduled backup is important so that your site can be restored to prevent disruption to your business
  • Storage of backup files in the “cloud” for extra security –
    Physical files on hard drives or disks can be damaged or lost.
  • Perform upgrades and apply security patches
    Updates are made regularly WordPress themes, plugins, and core code. These updates often repair security holes, improve performance, and add new features. Hackers with malicious intent are busy creating mischief – even if your site is not very active.
