Why Host with Reich Web Consulting
Like any service, the quality and price of web hosting can vary wildly from vendor to vendor. You’re an expert in your business, not web hosting. So it’s understandable that the choices can become overwhelming.
The Slums of the Internet
To stick with the real estate analogy I started in Web Hosting Explained, some web hosts are slum lords. They ask little of you and give little in return. If they rented apartments the carpet would be more cigarette burn and cat urine than actual carpet, but you’d barely smell it anyway because of the neighbor’s meth lab. But they’d sure cash those rent checks.
The web hosting equivalent of a slumlord sells web hosting that’s insecure, slow, and unreliable. It only feels like a bargain until your website gets hacked. When that happens you’ll need to pay a pro to repair it, you’ll lose traffic and, more importantly, you could lose customers. Oh, and your Google ranking may suffer too.
So what’s the alternative?
A Penthouse Suite With Security and a Doorman
At Reich Web Consulting we’re happy to serve clients of all types and budgets, and we understand that some clients will want rock-bottom hosting. But that’s not us, and that’s not what we offer.
Our hosting plan is not a budget option. We’ve done that. We’ve seen how it turns out for clients.
Reich Web Consulting’s Web Hosting is like a penthouse suite with security and a doorman. Our hosting is tuned specifically for your website. We take proactive steps to ensure that your website remains up and running and safe from hackers. We stop bad people at the door, before they’re allowed to run amok on your website and damage your image and credibility.
(Note: While Reich Web Consulting’s hosting services aren’t the cheapest, they’re not the most expensive, either! We’re not a $70 million-dollar apartment in New York’s Walker Tower. But we’re not a crack house in the worst neighborhood in Detroit, either. We’re the nice reliable house in the suburbs with a fence, deadbolts, and a german shepherd.)
Security is Not an Option
Reich Web Consulting has been around a while. We’ve experimented with budget hosting and “selling security” as an add-on. In the end we decided that security isn’t something that should be optional. Will we lose customers because we sell a premium service? Sure. But the smart ones stick around, because they understand the the value we offer.
Here are just a few of the features that make Reich Web Consulting’s Web Hosting package a great value when compared to cheaper competitors.
Automatic WordPress Updates
WordPress Core updates are installed automatically. Automated updates eliminate many security issues while reducing the risk of your website crashing due to a botched upgrade.
Daily Malware Scans
Your website hosted by Reich Web Consulting is scanned for malware every day by Securi, the biggest name in WordPress security.
Your website files and database are backed up daily. If something goes awry, there’s always a working copy one click away.
Automatic IP Blocking
By proactively blocking the IP addresses of hackers, botnets and spammers, we eliminate a large percentage of hacking and spam attempts that are launched against your website.
Limited Login Attempts
We only allow 3 login attempts before we block access from a particular user. This prevents hackers from “brute-forcing” your accounts (trying passwords until they find one that works).
Free Malware Removal
Consider this your insurance policy. If the security measures we described fail and your website does get hacked, we’ll clean up the hack free-of-charge.
