Waterloo Website Hosting

About 75% of our web site design customers also have us handle their hosting. That allows you to have one point of contact for all web site related services. Plus, our relationship with the hosting company gives us a direct line to customer service. That means you won't have to send an e-mail and wait 24-48 hours for a reply. Plus it keeps the server environment for our customer's websites more stable, so you won't get caught by "strange installation methods" from other hosts. And finally, the cost is great too!

By having a large number of accounts with the same host, we're able to share the savings with our customers. Most of our customers use shared hosting, but don't worry, that doesn't mean that the speed of your site will suffer, like it can with some hosting companies. Keeping an eye on server load is one of the main reasons we use our hosting companies. A slow site can be just as bad as a site that is down, so watch out for those 99.9% uptime guarantees.
