People often ask us what do I get for my money when it comes to what you charge me for Premium Hosting? Well if they don’t ask like they should, they are maybe thinking the same, and rightly so.
When it comes to server functionality and behind the scenes support, the very support that keeps your business or organization website running like clockwork, then you can use the old saying pretty much every time. “You get what you pay for”.
At GDU, we have always taken a proactive approach to server maintenance and support. Now this doesn’t include updating your website or adding pictures etc. This is the stuff that goes on behind the scenes that you don’t see, the stuff that you are actually paying for.
As the modern website has evolved, especially over the last 3-5 years, so to has the not so nice people out there that want to cause trouble to websites, servers and anyone involved in any online activity. As most are aware SPAM takes many minutes or sometimes even hours of our time to deal with each week. With the added threat of “Phishing” scams the cost could also be monetarily or even your very identity. So what was the norm for the hackers to do 10-15 years ago and that was to deface a website, has now lead to a far more sophisticated attempt at cheating you, website owners and server managers out of their well earned cash or just causing massive headaches.
