If you have a website, you probably know you need a domain name and hosting for people to access it.
Do you really know what those things are, or how they work?
Should you even care?
You should care what hosting is because, to be brutally honest, you are probably paying for the laziest level of hosting service.
Don’t feel bad, it’s all most companies offer.
Let’s get you up to speed on what you’re getting, and then we can help you determine if it’s enough.
the activity or business of providing storage space and access for websites.
Right. So hosting is basically just providing storage space and access for websites.
How does that work?
Let’s say you want to call someone. On a phone, you use a phone number. On the internet, you use a URL (Uniform Resource Locator).
When you “call” the URL, the hosting provider acts like a service provider.
You can’t successfully call someone on a cell phone that doesn’t have a cell phone service provider, and you can’t view a website that doesn’t have hosting.
Pretty straightforward. You need hosting for people to access your website.
What does bandwidth have to do with your hosting?
Imagine a radio station is giving away free tickets to a really awesome concert.
The phones ring off the hook, and every ticket is snatched up fast.
Do the phones stop ringing when the last ticket is given away?
No, how is anyone supposed to know all the tickets are gone? The phones keep ringing, and many disappointed callers are turned away.
If the band holding the concert is your site, the radio station is your hosting service, and bandwidth is represented by the tickets.
If you have limited bandwidth, people may get turned away from your site and cry to their friends about how they missed being able to go to your site and meet you backstage and get your autograph.
Or they’ll just go to your competitor’s site.
This is why unlimited bandwidth is so important.
A lot of hosting providers offer unlimited bandwidth. This is nice. Pay a bit more, never worry about your site being unaccessible.
But why stop there? Why just give more of the same service?
At Jonesen, we like to take things the extra mile, then just keep going for a few miles after that.
A Virtual Marathon of Extra Miles
We offer hosting with unlimited bandwidth, unlimited site storage, daily backups, weekly visitor metrics, managed updates, SSL Certification, Hacker Protection, Search Engine Optimization (SEO), and even unlimited content tweaks. That’s insane.
What is the point to providing all that? Why not just host websites the same as everybody else?
Because our we’re different, and we like that.
Unlimited Bandwidth and Site Storage
We offer unlimited bandwidth and unlimited site storage so you’re not limited in the message you deliver to your users.
Daily Site Backups
We add daily site backups so that you don’t ever lose a thing in the case of a random natural disaster scenario.
Weekly Visitor Metrics
We add weekly visitor metrics so that you can tailor your message to the people who are looking at it most, and can tweak your content to get the maximum return on your investment.
We add managed updates so that you never have to worry about your framework running slowly due to being outdated, or having an out of date plugin, or having search engines neglect your site due to a lack of activity.
We add SSL Certification because you need the trust of your users, and that little lock in the address bar means so much more than just data encryption. Google has actually started ranking unsecured sites lower than secure sites, and an SSL Certificate allows for HTML5 power tools, opening up new ways to offer more to your users.
We add Hacker Protection because after 15+ years in cyber security, we know that the risk is more real than you may think. It takes seconds for a hacker to access an unsecured site, and basic security isn’t always enough. We allow you to rely on our expertise to protect your information, and the information of those you serve.
Search Engine Optimization
We add Search Engine Optimization (SEO) because it doesn’t matter that your site is online if nobody finds it. Being on the front page of Google is more important that ever, and Google is constantly raising the bar on what it takes to get there.
We know what it takes to get to number one. Just ask Botana’s Premier Mexican, in Branson.
Let us keep you up to speed, and in the eyes of the people trying to find you.
Unlimited Content Tweaks
We add unlimited content tweaks because you don’t always have the time to edit your own site.
Even if you know how to get into the front end and change pictures, videos, and text, wouldn’t it be wonderful if you didn’t have to?
You don’t. Let us know what you want us to tweak, and it’s done. No hassle, just hustle.
All this, and we host you on a Content Delivery Network (CDN), for even better speed and security.
Can you see why we want to add so much more than extra bandwidth?
Because it gets results, and we care about you and your business.
It makes our day when our clients tell us that they get 3-4 times more traffic just by using our hosting.
We make web design and hosting simple, and a lot more helpful.
And stories like these make it easy to see why we do what we do.
Are you getting enough from your hosting? Do you want more?
Get in touch, we’ll help.
