Any hosting provider can provision the hardware, set up your server, and harden it for security. They can manage the network, maintain the data centers, and refresh the hardware.
We do all that.
Do you expect your hosting provider to take an intimate look into your application infrastructure? Do you expect them to have the capabilities to performance fine tune your database and operating system?
Do you expect them to bring their own tools like GTmetrix and GossamerEye to optimize and pro-actively monitor your system against over 30 performance metrics?
Whether you're technical or not, big or small, local or global, Managed Hosting should mean more to you.
Because it does to us.Request Information

We would never leave you hanging out to dry. It's why we offer full back-ups of your file system up to 7 days if your site ever gets hacked or goes down. Our exceptionally fast support and response time gets your business back up and running in no time.
We start by locking down our infrastructure (SSAE16 Certified) and securing our data centers. We've implemented system-level and network-level intrusion detection. Naturally, we apply regular security patches and are always trained and up to date on new security vulnerabilities on popular applications (eg. WordPress CMS).
