When you type in the address of a website, computer code interprets what you want and pulls information from a database. Your browser retrieves instructions on how to style each page, and displays images such as logos and photos, animations and videos. All those files must be hosted on a server which is available 24/7 to anyone interested in your business. Servers require constant monitoring and updating and are kept in very secure, temperature controlled environments.
Thrive Web Solutions does not offer hosting services. There are already dozens of well respected companies offering hosting at very affordable prices. We also believe it is in your best interest to have your own hosting account and not use your developer’s. Hosting companies maintain servers around the world which means your site will not be disrupted if your city experiences an event like a temporary power outage. Our passion is helping you and your business be successful. We understand that not every working relationship is a good fit. If you control the hosting account you have the ability to easily find another developer. That gives you peace of mind and keeps us on our toes.
In fact, we recommend purchasing all the services that support your website and business from different vendors. Keeping these services separate protects your personal data and prevents downtime. We purchased thrivewebsolutions.com from domains.google.com. We host our website at SiteGround.com and we subscribe to Outlook 365 email through GoDaddy.com.
We love Siteground
We work with dozens of hosting companies and find they all use similar tools we’re very familiar with. If you’re creating a completely new website we’ll be happy to recommend several vendors for your needs.
We decided a couple of years ago to host all of our websites with SiteGround. They constantly upgrade their equipment and have amazing support. They are widely considered one of the best for hosting WordPress sites. They have curated unique tools that will keep your site finely tuned and loading as quickly as possible.
We even joined the siteground affiliate program. As an affiliate we can offer you discounts and earn credits we can apply toward our hosting account. Click the banner below to purchase a hosting account with special discounts.
