Having us administer all of that will allow you to have a few less things to deal with each week so that you can focus your efforts on your customers and business.
All of our customers know 'something about' websites, but none of them knows how to do everything that their website needs, e.g. updating website software, nightly virus scans, nightly backups, adding email accounts, updating all types of website content, creating new web page templates, adding products & photos to a website shop, resizing product photos etc.
When you have your website hosted and managed on our managed web servers, you'll know that you have the backing of an established web company, ensuring that your website is online and functioning without any problems.
Excellent Hosting Customer Support
For those rare occurrences when a web server does have a problem, we'd know about it long before any customer and there will be an engineer working on it immediately. Server downtime is a rare event nowadays but we have tested processes in place for when it does occur. If there are any issues we'll keep you informed and update you when your website is back up.
Website Server Reliability
We host & manage your website on high speed, expertly managed, secure, modern web servers located in data centres in Ireland and Europe. To achieve our high availability the servers are protected by emergency backup systems for internet connectivity, electrical power, air conditioning and fire suppression.
Website Security & Backups
We make sure that your website is secure and that nightly backups are taken in case we ever needed to recreate some website pages after you accidentally deleted them, or if a disgruntled ex-employee deleted some pages from your website. These are rare events, but they can occur. When your website is down, you lose customers, so we manage your security and website backups so that you're protected on all fronts.
Your Business Email Accounts
You may already have an email address like firstname.lastname@example.org, but now that you have your own website name, you will need email addresses that match this website name. This gives you a more professional image on the web when you're in contact with new and existing clients.
We can register whatever new website names you need and setup the corresponding emails accounts for you. We can manage those accounts for you, as well as manage everything else associated with that website name. We can also provide webmail access so that you can access your email using a 3rd party computer or during emergencies when you can't access your own PC or laptop.
We can provide anti-spam scanning on your email server, so as to clean up your inbox and free it of virus emails and spam. Over 40% of the emails received each day are typically rejected because they are spam or contain a virus.
Overall - Lower Website Hosting Costs
Many companies base their decision about hosting their website on price alone and while cost is a very important factor, it's not the only factor. 'Total Cost Of Ownership' encourages you to look at all the important hosting factors when deciding what company should be supporting you and your website. You should consider what is best for your website and your business in terms of reliability, the type of customer support that you want, response times to fix a problem etc.
You should also put a value on your own time. Many business people assume they're making huge savings by spending a few hours each week working on their own website. They may be trying to edit/fix website problems that they're not fully up to speed on. In actual fact they would save money and time by letting MYIT manage their website and they could then focus on new and existing customers which will quickly pay for a whole year of website management with us.
