At Harness Media, we offer Website Care Plans. Our plans include many great features, one of which is premium managed web hosting. Our plans also include SSL certificates, server-level firewall, spam protection, 24/7 malware scanning, automatic WordPress updates and more. These plans are built for clients who wish to have someone handle all of the day-to-day operations for their website, without having to worry about the time and expense it takes to manage everything.
Sometimes, however, I work with clients who already have an internal team or the know-how to handle many of these tasks. While my general feeling is to “let the experts do what they are good at”, I also understand those who want to take a more hands-on approach to their own website. Occasionally, I build a website for a client and then they ask for recommendations for hosting companies. This is where SiteGround comes in.
SiteGround is great if you just need a great foundation so you can handle all of the day-to-day website tasks yourself. Their servers are fast, support is great, and they offer some extra tools and upgrades so you can find exactly the level of service you need. If you are looking for something maybe a little more advanced, but not at the level of Harness Media’s Website Care Plans, you could also take a good look at Pressable.
Also, if you aren’t sure about what it takes to manage a website, Harness Media has created a free downloadable guide called, “Five Essentials For Keeping Your Website Safe“. Click here to check it out!
