Shared Web Hosting
With so many companies offering web hosting, how do you choose one to host your website? And why should you choose Powernet above anyone else?
You may be tempted to compare on price alone, especially as some companies offer to host your website at little or no cost. Whilst this might seem like a potential bargain, you need to look a little further than cost if you are serious about your website and its place in your company's overall strategy and activities. To make a more informed decision, you should also look at the following considerations:
- Speed - at Powernet, we always ensure we have more than enough bandwidth for the websites we host, making your site quick to access and download
- Reliable connections - Powernet has numerous diversely routed connections to the Internet, offering superb resiliency. Should one connection fail, we can quickly reroute traffic with no noticeable effect for anyone accessing websites on our servers
- Reliable hardware - we use high end servers offering a high level of resiliency through facilities such as back up power supplies, multi processor, raid array hard drives, and redundant network interfaces. And should the unthinkable happen, we stock spare equipment and can rapidly replace a faulty component
- Data archiving - we archive every website we host every day: should you lose any data, or accidentally remove files, we can retrieve the lost information for you
- Help, I'm stuck! - we operate a 24 hour, 7 day a week technical support telephone line (excluding bank holidays). Running on a national rate telephone number (unlike other premium rate operators), you are connected directly to support staff with the experience and in depth knowledge to address a wide range of possible problems
- Free Statistical Analysis - Powernet can offer full online statistical analysis on your website (updated daily) at no additional cost. This offers a full break down of visitor numbers, pages visited, and even search strings used on popular search engines that resulted in visits to your site. If you're continually looking to refine your Internet presence and strategy, this is a powerful tool to help you
- Choice of Server Platforms - whether your have an existing preference or are happy just to let us advise you, we can host your website on either a Unix platform or a Microsoft Windows platform.
- Server Software - Powernet's hosting team can also help with non-standard software installs.
Powernet are proud to work with clients in a variety of market sectors.
