Vision House doesn’t just put your site on a server somewhere and collect a fee. We actively work with our clients to maximize their website investment. It’s been our experience that even large companies do better focusing on their own business while leaving the website management to us. Content updates, picture changes, CMS security updates - even design changes - are all included in these managed hosting plans. Please review the table (and the detailed explanations that follow) and select the plan that works best for you:
Website Hosting & Management Plans
Website Hosting & Management Details:
Fully Scalable Architecture - Some design companies shoehorn every client into a large CMS. We’ve built massive sites on Wordpress and Joomla for years, but not every business needs a complicated CMS. Sometimes a simple, static HTML site is more than enough; they are easy to build, save money up front and grow with you: add a blog, forum, eCommerce and more as needed. Start simple. Add features as you grow.
24/7 Site Monitoring - Our system checks your site every few minutes to make sure it is still up and running. If a problem is detected, we are immediately notified of the condition and a support technician is notified.
Software CMS and Plugin Updates - A healthy website is kept up to date. We handle the necessary platform updates required to keep your site safe and fast. Whether it’s Wordpress, Joomla, Drupal, DotNetNuke or virtually any other CMS package, your system requires routine functional and security updates for plugins and platform.
Software CMS Advanced Security - This offers subscribers enhanced security to lock down your CMS and deter hackers. We will install a number of enhanced security measures on your site including advanced security modules, IP blocking, whitelists, and htaccess protections to make sure your site stays clean.
