What most companies want from a host is that their website and email are secure, fast, no downtime, and any issues are addressed immediately.
For hosting we have maintained dedicated servers in a well-connected data centre since 1999. We started this because after three years of frustration with external hosts, we found we were not able to get the type of hosting services we wanted (at any price).
Today we host well over a hundred Australian and American sites (high-end servers in both countries), from local government to SME to cottage industry. Some of whom have been with us since the beginning in 1999. ‘Nuff said!
We don’t take just any site. Like us, you want your servers to be “lean and mean.” If we accept your company as a client, you too will be delighted with the benefits of dealing with a “boutique” operation.
Yes, you can get cheap hosting, but please re-read the first sentence above!
