How can Equahost help my Business?
Let's start with your website. It's your shop window and is arguably the most important component of your business. Unfortunately, websites are often complex to set up and require constant maintenance. There are many companies offering self-service tools to make this easier, however they are often expensive and restrictive. With Equahost, just tell us what you want, and we'll just make it happen.
But I've just read about your Cloud I.T Department service. Why is this different?
Businesses with up to ten employees sometimes struggle to justify the cost of fully cloud-hosted virtual desktops. Where this is the case, we offer a cost-effective cloud solution for storing your files online and granting (online and offline) access from any location. We can also offer universal technical support for your laptop or computer using screen-sharing technology.
Yes, but there are many file sharing and storage services on the Internet. Why should I use yours?
Well, our Cloud File Storage is *super* fast and packed with really clever features. However, the really cool stuff comes when your business grows, and you look to upgrade to one of our Enterprise hosted-desktop services. Because we store your files in a "universal" repository (accessible from all our service offerings) you enjoy true service scalability. What do we mean by this? Well, it means you can chop and change your subscription (on a monthly basis) for any (or all) your users - in lock-step with your business requirements. Some users can have hosted desktops, some just file storage. But everyone works from the same data.
OK, that all sounds great, but as for my website, why not use something like Wix.com? Why should I pay Equahost?
We offer a complete service. Even website-builders can get complex, especially if you grow quickly and require an unsupported feature. Plus, you still have to choose your design, write your copy, perhaps integrate other services like social media and analytics. Time is money! With Equahost, just send us a couple of examples of sites you like the look of and (with your guidance) we'll do the rest.
But can I still edit my own website?
You certainly can. We build all our client's websites using the fantastic Umbraco CMS. Once your site is live, we'll give you the keys and full instructions.
Am I tied into Equahost?
Not at all. You will find all your website files and any databases in your Cloud Storage repository.
How much does it all cost?
We charge a flat fee of £49 per hour (plus VAT) for all website development and remote support services. This is billed in fifteen minute increments. A standard website usually takes around eight hours to design and build. We include your first year of hosting with 25GB webspace. In the second year, your live webspace will be charged at £14 + VAT per month per 25GB. Cloud Storage charges are currently £6 + VAT per month for 100GB.
So how do I get started?
Just hit our chat box on the right and tell us a bit about your business! You will be speaking to a consultant, not a salesperson. We only talk money when you are ready.
