Have you ever wondered what goes on behind your website? Once a developer writes the code, where does that data live? Well, the answer is simpler than you may have imagined. That data is stored on a server. A server is essentially a super computer built to store and protect data. Along these lines, web hosting is the process of “renting” server space to house your website. That’s why it’s important to carefully select a hosting provider and plan. Quality hosting ensures your website is live and loads quickly, so you and your customers can rely on its performance.
When it comes to hosting solutions, not all providers and plans are the same. Whether you’re an emerging business, an artisan shop or a large corporate firm, Niki Jones Agency will guide you through the process of choosing the right solution for you. Our knowledgeable I. T. staff will make sure your website is securely hosted for optimal performance.
Shared Hosting: Niki Jones Agency offers shared hosting on our own server. Shared hosting is a great, cost-effective solution for basic websites. Additionally, our server reduces the challenges associated with shared hosting, like slower load times or security threats. We only host our clients on this server, so we know every website has an effective internet security plan. We offer ongoing maintenance and cyber security
services for every site we build. (Click here to read more about our approach to internet security.)
VPS Hosting: Virtual Private Server (VPS) hosting solutions are best for websites that receive moderate traffic and require some dedicated (private) server space. VPS hosting gives you complete control over the Operating System for your server space, without renting out the entire server. Accordingly, the hosting provider can guarantee uptime and load time depending on your plan.
Dedicated Server Hosting: Dedicated, or private, servers are the best solution for large websites. If your site experiences high-volume traffic, has a lot of pages, or requires additional security measures, we will recommend a dedicated server. This option provides complete control over your web hosting environment. This includes not only Operating System and other software, but hardware as well. Because dedicated servers are fully customizable, they are also the most expensive hosting solution.
Cloud-based Hosting: This hosting solution is a recent and popular development. Like traditional server environments, you can choose between shared or VPS hosting plans. Instead of a physical server, however, cloud-based hosting stores data on several cloud servers. Accordingly, downtime is highly unlikely as at least one cloud server hosting your site will be operational at any given time. Cloud-based solutions are also highly customizable and scalable.
In addition to coordinating your web hosting solution, we provide a variety of hosting-related services. These include domain name registration, DNS management, and implementation of email solutions.
We also provide a variety of email solutions for our clients, including Microsoft 365 or G Suite. These email solutions coordinate your domain name with your email address, making your communications more credible and professional. More importantly, however, hosted emails solutions are more reliable, accessible, and offer advanced security measures to ensure your private data is protected at all times.
Niki Jones Agency also provides technical support for a variety of web-related concerns. If you’re experiencing significant downtime, want to change your hosting provider, or simply don’t know where to start, we’re here to help. All of our hosting solutions include 24/7/365 technical support. This way, you never have to wonder what’s going on behind the scenes.
