How do the prices break down for hosting more then one domain?
Why are the prices at these levels? I see hosting prices of
$3.00 per month or less online!
Hosting companies who offer these prices are using servers built
with single processors and IDE drives and then placing 1000 or
more hosting accounts on each server. This kind of computer is built
just like your home desktop machine. The IDE drive system uses the
main processor to process each information request from the hard
When you have 1000 plus websites each receiving request for data intermittently
there are bound to be problems in data flow as often too many simultaneous
request for data happen at once. This means your website visitor
will not get a response when he/she visits your site or clicks on
links in your pages hosted on this overloaded machine.
When you relate this to cars you see that the guy driving a Yugo
who stuffs in all his friends is not going anywhere very fast. But
hay it's cheap right? Well exactly! You get what you pay for. What
is in your driveway? A $30K plus SUV or something even better? Could
it be you have done the Yugo thing and it was not any fun after all?
AVC is a hosting service for adults or those who realize the
difference and know that value means your website is online, loads
fast and is always there to accomplish it's intended task.
If you want cheapo hosting you are not going to get quad XEON
processors, 2 gigs of ram, SCSI drives or redundant
power (UPS). Nor will you get access to a great network with
redundant large connections to the internet backbone.
In the unlikely event of a server failure (has not happened yet)
we bring a new machine online then reload all data from the backup
made the night before at 12:01 am. Server downtime is expected to be
30 to 60 minutes depending on how long the backup takes to load.
Everything used to provide hosting has redundancy or is backed up
on a regular basis.
This is what separates the men from the boys in the world of web
hosting. What happens when something does go wrong? Do they have a
plan? AVC plans for the worst and keeps the data safe and available
with a minimum of downtime. If the worst does happen we are prepared
so your website and business will not suffer.
We invite you to contact the central Washington state better
business bureau (BBB) and inquire about us. This is a good policy to
follow as many hosting companies are run as a hobby business and do
not even have a business license. We will provide you with our
Washington state business license number upon request.
