Here in Steinbach (and other areas of the province), too many businesses have come to us who have been overpaying for their website hosting. If you want the absolute honest truth about hosting, here it is:
Web hosting costs roughly $100 for the average website per year. (This does not include major corporation websites or sites with online stores.)
There should be no monthly fees. If your hosting service or web designer is telling you otherwise, you may want to reevaluate.
What does Three do for website hosting? We charge $109/year. We have a $9 markup for the 15 minutes it takes to pass your information over to our web hosting service.
Our web hosting service isn’t a mysterious entity that is never seen nor heard of, it is an active part of our growing business that is readily available as the rest of the services offered by Three. Not only do we host your site for an honest price, we also keep a backup server running at all times in case one server goes down.
If you want to have minor updates done, rest in the assurance that we will take care of any bug fixes, maintain hack protection and keep your website up to date with Google–we have a packaged service that fits your needs. We offer a “Web Maintenance Package” for an additional $119/year. No monthly fees, no outrageous set up fees, just one honest rate as a “value added service” to our customers.
THAT is the truth about website hosting.
