Hosting & Domains
The first place we usually start with our clients is web hosting. Your new website needs a place to live, right? Or you might have an existing site that needs better web hosting. We offer web hosting services through a 3rd-party provider – GreenGeeks. GreenGeeks is an excellent provider of reliable web hosting services plus has a commitment to replacing 300% of their energy usage through renewable energy certificates (RECs). GreenGeeks provides the following services to any clients using their spaces:
- Scan for malicious attacks regularly. These attacks are a regular thing these days. We’ve dealt with restoring many clients from these attacks and this is a big reason we back up our web hosting spaces daily.

- Upgrade servers regularly to keep everything up-to-date (also helps with security)
