When we launched latinamericanart.com we had the daunting task of selecting a competent dedicated server provider and we chose 800hosting. Since our inception we knew that eventually we had to chose a provider that would be able to hold our hand, help us when needed and most of all, keep the web sites up. Art and technology are much more compatible now than back in the day, but it’s rare to find an art nut who is also a full blown technical wizard. So we oftens time find ourselves able to handle the front end (updating our sites) but with little or no comprehension of how the backend works. Things like data backup in case our system fails or keeping our servers free of viruses have become very important to us. Read a few blogs and you will quickly learn that not so nice things happen to nice web sites far too frequently.
The only time we had an issue was when one of our dedicated servers started to have a slowness issue but that was quickly resolved with a simple phone call. 800hosting has been helpful when needed and has always been prompt to reply by phone or email so we have been very satisfied with our choice and while they are not the least expensive, we sleep better at night knowing that they are keeping a watchful eye on our servers.
So we want to publicly thank 800hosting for doing a great job and helping us make latinamericanart.com the best Latin American Art portal on the web.
