Hosting


All websites are hosted on a server, a safeguarded computer that serves the files which comprise your website to the people who are visiting your site via the Internet. At HiFiWebsites, we use fast, reliable cloud servers from trusted hosting companies of long standing.

And because we host dozens of websites, we can get better rates, so we can save you money while still running a profitable business. When you host your website with HiFiWebsites, your website will enjoy the following benefits:

Safety

With our cloud hosting, your website is safer and more reliable. The data that make up your site are automatically mirrored across three separate servers. In the event that hardware issues arise on one server, our system will automatically serve your files from the other two until the third is brought back into service.

Speed

No more long load times to frustrate your customers and kill your Google Search ranking. In addition to rock solid servers, our cloud platform includes a global content delivery network (CDN) to make sure your server resources are located as near as possible to your audience.

Scalability

As your website gains popularity, we’ll make sure that needed resources are allocated to keep it running quickly and reliably. And you don’t even have to make a phone call; we’ve got you covered!

Affordability

Just as your CPA obviates the need for you to get an MBA, and your attorney saves you the trouble of attending law school, we will take care of your web presence. You won’t need to worry about when your domain name expires, when your hosting plan needs to be renewed, or if your website is down. We have decades of experience and the knowledge to take care of 100% of your Internet presence. And, for most clients, we can do so for less than you spend on cable each month!

Maintenance


Website maintenance involves a variety of tasks, many of which must be performed on a regular basis, and some of which must be attended to in real time. Let’s look at what is included in our maintenance schedule:

Updates

Content management systems, frameworks, themes, and plugins: All need to be updated as new versions are released. Why? The main reason for updates is to fix security issues and protect against the latest security threats. Changes to the other components of your website keep it compatible with the CMS and allow it to run at peak efficiency, while maximizing safety and reliability.

Backups

When was the last time your website was backed up? Where are the backups stored? Is someone in charge of regular, scheduled backups? Depending on how often your site is updated, off-site backups should be scheduled daily, weekly, or, at a minimum, monthly.

But you can forget about backing up your website. We’ll do it for you.

Security

We monitor the security of client sites on a regular basis, and our backup routines ensure a full recovery if something should go awry. We are proactive in keeping your site safe, and, should anything happen, we’ll provide the site recovery and any repairs necessary.

Tracking & Reporting

Do you have the time to track the efficacy of your online efforts? Do you know how many visitors come to your site each day, month, or year? Do you know your visitors’ locations, genders, income or age ranges? We do! A semi-annual report is included in your monthly maintenance fee. And we can review the data more frequently if you need more information to aid you in marketing decisions.
