Some clients ask:
Why should I pay more for hosting when I can pay much less to GoDaddy and host my website there!
If you’re comparing GoDaddy to our hosting service, you’re comparing apples to oranges.
GoDaddy is all about discount pricing, at scale,
While companies like GoDaddy claim to offer Managed Hosting, it is just marketing name and has noting to to with a managed service.
For instance, GoDaddy advertises 24/7 support with every plan. What they don’t advertise is that their definition of “support” is largely limited to account management. Help setting up your server, migrating your site, setting up backups — even auditing disk space usage — are all considered “Expert Services” and charged at a premium rate. Likewise, if you need help fast, you’re probably out of luck.
Unfortunately, some people decide based on the initial cost, rather than the overall value.
In the end, the mantra of “you get what you pay for” is as true with hosting services as it is with anything else.
The truth is, if you ever need help with any common issues web hosting customers typically call in about, your cheap shared hosting plan may quickly end up costing you more than what you’d pay for if you have purchased a fully managed VIP, and it does add up quickly.
These days, you should update your website on a regular basis, and have a business partner to keep it secure (and act quickly if it gets hacked, which happens a lot), and this is what distinguishes Solution21's hosting from others. We are here when you need us.
The fact that you get unlimited data transfer and free SSL certificates for your sites regardless of your plan setup means our plans are already a better choice.
