If you’re currently hosting your website and email somewhere else and want to utilize our hosting services, we can help migrate your website and email from another service provider to our systems for FREE! You will not have to worry about loosing any of your previous websites files or emails plus there will be no downtime during the switch over if you keep the other hosting service active during the migration period. This allows for a seamless transition as long as we are given the required access to make the migration possible.
Imageway Digital Media has setup and operates our own web and email hosting servers, which allows for flexibility and quick server system changes. Our primary servers are located in geographically separated data centers that are built for co-location of computer servers (which includes redundant power, cooling, fire protection, etc.). Most hosting companies both large and small only use a single data center for redundancy of their services, rather then geographically separated systems that are synchronized in real time. Having our systems geographically separated allows us to provide at a minimum 99.9% uptime to all our customers, even if a whole data center goes offline. Imageway uses high-end computers and disk arrays along with Unix operating systems for the hosting of our websites. We do not use cheap PC server components or problem prone operating systems like Windows. Lastly we only use the most proven and reliable software for our service offerings based on our over 15 years of specialized knowledge.
When choosing the software for our services, not only did we pick the most reliable, but we also choose what we felt was the most optimized. Optimized software provides additional speed when it comes to accessing your website or email. This is important because most people using a web browser expect instant results, and if you are using a hosting service that overloads their less then optimized setup, then your whole experience will be downgraded. In addition, the faster your website loads, the higher it will show up in search engine results. We have went out of our way to optimize our web server environment using custom compiled programming engines utilizing special caches along with a highly optimized database. This means your CMS based website such as WordPress will run faster on our server then might be expected with lesser quality services.
Security is becoming a major concern as more companies are hacked into and exposed. It is a tough balance because you want good strong security, but if you lock things down too much then you are limited in functionality. Due to our over 15 years of working with web system environments, we have created what we feel is the best balance between providing advanced security, but at the same time giving you advanced functionality you require. The software we utilize for our core web and email services has built-in security checks that look for suspicious activity. In addition we run scanners for malicious website files or activities and try to remove SPAM or viruses before it hits your INBOX. Of course it is still important that customers keep their website software up to date, since not all attacks can be stopped from the server side. Lastly we offer SSL encrypted sessions for all the service standards we support.
Imageway takes privacy seriously. Since we setup and operate our own systems, none of your data is running on or shared with 3rd parties. We will only release data to a 3rd party as is required by law. Our hosting servers are located within the local geographic area, and not spread all across the world. In addition, by using the security methods mentioned above, we try to assure your data is hardened against illegal hacking attempts.
We believe in the use of open standards when it comes to offering our services. Most people don’t realize before it is too late that getting stuck on proprietary services will lock you into their service, and making a move a real headache. For accessing your website we offer HTTP(s) and FTP(s), plus PHP, Ruby, Perl, and Classic ASP for website development. When it comes to dealing with Email, we offer SMTP(s), IMAP(s), and POP3(s). Lastly, for our Professional Hosting package customers we offer ActiveSync(s), CalDAV(s), CardDAV(s), SyncML(s), and WebDAV(s). In fact, we offer support for just about every open standard of communication to both web and email systems. This assures our web and email services will work with the largest range of devices, and offer you the ability to move to or from our services from other services that support these open standards. If you use other proprietary methods like using MAPI with an Exchange email server, you then become locked into that specific Exchange software environment. The use of open standards is the best environment for having true ownership and control of your data.
Since we have been in the web and email services area for over 15 years, we have had the time to work with many types of CMS based systems. This has allowed us to learn how to optimize them for speed and security. You will find we are very knowledgeable with popular CMS software such as WordPress, CMS Made Simple, Concrete5, Joomla, Drupal, Zencart, Prestashop, and Sunshop.
[fancy_header]Business Ease of Use[/fancy_header]
Our goal is to make it as easy as possible for you to manage all the services that are involved in website and email hosting. Instead of providing a complex administrator panel such as cPanel or Plesk for all your website and email site functions, we only provide the core administration functions a user should be worried about. All other advanced settings will be handled by our experienced support staff. This takes the load off our customer needing to know all the complicated terms involved in a control panel or needing to hire someone to understand it for them.
[fancy_header]Shared Pooled Storage[/fancy_header]
Instead of offering storage limits on a per account basis like many other large hosting companies do, we offer a storage size that can be shared between many different users and functions. Using pooled storage, you can get a better bang for the buck. Why don’t we offer unlimited storage? Don’t be fooled by the “unlimited” advertising that is popular from many of today’s large web hosting companies. Many large web hosting resellers say they offer “UNLIMITED” resources for your site, but if you read their carefully hidden usage policy pages you will learn they have limits on using their resources too quickly (such as space growth, max emails in an hour, max accounts you can create in a given time, or using too much of their CPU, etc.). The large hosting companies need to enforce such limits because they host such large amount of websites on a single server and therefore must restrict resources so their servers do not become overloaded. Usually the term “unlimited” is a marketing term to trick customers into using their service thinking they get more, where in reality they get restricted much more in other areas of service.
