You can have the best website in the world, but if it isn’t up, what good is it? While you might struggle to put an exact dollar figure on the cost of downtime for your business, you know it’s there. Every moment that your website is down is time that client’s can’t learn about your company, can’t contact you for information or sales and damage to your reputation increases.
According to the HostWay website, “Since opening our doors in 1998, Hostway has been committed to bringing the power of the Internet to our customers across the globe with innovative and easy-to-use products that are supported by unmatched customer service. One of the top-five leading Web hosting companies, our experience gives us the skills to guide our customers through the process of getting on the Web by continually developing new, easy-to-use features and tools that take the difficulty out of creating, promoting and having a website.”
Unfortunately, HostWay will not publish it’s uptime and availability statistics, creating many to wonder just what they are trying to hide. According to many online anecdotal evidence, client websites hosted with HostWay suffer frequent outages with no explanations available for clients. BestHostRatings.com reports that HostWay suffers very regular outages, with their total uptime since January 2006 only coming in at 99.897%, which is far below any standard that you should be setting for your company. In addition, it is completely unacceptable in this era for hosting providers to be hiding their availability statistics.
Nerds On Site, by comparison, publishes it’s numbers for the world to see: trust.nerdsisp.com. We maintain over four nines (99.99%) of uptime, and work very hard to provide even better stats for our clients. Contact us today to learn how we can improve your online revenues!
