Essential to make your website “live” on the internet, hosting is the annual rental of disk space in our Atlanta data center that is part of the internet backbone. The files and pages that make up your website are uploaded there and configured to display using your domain name.
North Forty Road Web Studio provides hosting for both our own design clients and those who have their sites designed by others. Our hosting service provides 99% up-time, and includes basic business email, a back-end cpanel (control panel), and complete site statistics package (who is visiting your site and how they find it).
For full cloud-based business email, we recommend and install Google Apps, which interfaces perfectly with your phone/portable device and desktop, and has a number of other great business features, including shared calendars. Read more about Google Apps here.
We provide 24-7 online support for our hosting accounts, and in most cases (during business hours), you can reach one of us directly for help.
