Website Hosting

To take advantage of the special services offered by Art Sites will require that your website be hosted on our severs. This is not an artificial requirement that is designed to corner your business. It's simply that many of the backend features included in the websites that we develop require the special configurations of our servers. This requirement would be a red flag when choosing a company to develop your website...except for one thing: Every one of our websites includes features that make it easily portable.

The only necessary recurring costs for keeping your website online with Art Sites is the website hosting fee. This simply refers to the space you rent on a specialized computer (called a "server") with high-speed connections to the Internet. The hosting server is where all of your website's files and images are stored and processed when a visitor wants to view your site.

Because of the many advanced back-end features of an Art Sites website, it is necessary to host it on our server in order to access all of those features. Our Dallas servers have a record of 100% uptime, and their associated network has an record of 99.9% uptime. Plus, at this writing, we are configuring servers in an Atlanta datacenter that will maintain live, duplicate copies of all the websites we manage. These will serve as a failover so that if one server should fail for whatever reason, visitors to your site will automatically be redirected to the other server.

We also do not overcrowd our servers as so many other hosting companies do, which keeps them very fast. And there are no other websites on our servers except our own, so there are no strangers wandering around the servers, causing mischief.

Hosting is the only essential recurring cost for the websites that Art Sites develops. Unless you retain us to perform continuing promotion or maintenance of your website, all other costs are one time fees. Please see our Web Services Costs page for a breakdown of fees.
