Hosting

There are hundreds, probably thousands of options in hosting these days. From free (with ads), shared, virtual, dedicated, collocated… Most people just don’t know where to begin. Perhaps they search for reviews on hosting companies but many review sites are simply affiliate pages that receive payment for each sign up. Some people rely on developer communities for advice. But if you were to ask ten people which hosting company to choose, you may get ten different opinions. We won’t dissuade you from using any of the fine hosting companies out there.

However, if you are in need of hosting, we’d hope you will consider us. We have our own dedicated Linux servers ready and waiting for your website. And we can scale up to meet any needs. If you would like more information please contact us.

Web Design

Your website is the center of your marketing. It’s how you acquire new business and maintain your relationships with existing customers.

Whether it’s a customer looking for your address or a potential customer just trying to figure out what they want or who you are, your website is their first impression of your business. We design most sites using WordPress, a system that’s easy for you to update and creates beautiful, unique websites. However, we can also create websites using nearly any technology you require.

Our methodology is to first determine your goals and then apply appropriate technology to meet your goals. We apply that process to your website, so it becomes the center of your inbound marketing and starts generating real business for you.

The creative process is our passion, and we will provide you with a website that works for you. Contact us today!

Maintenance

Websites need routine maintenance from time to time to keep them looking fresh.

  • You may have custom features which mysteriously stopped functioning and need to be fixed.
  • You may have content which is being missed due to layout issues.
  • You may have browser display issues which were overlooked.
  • Your business needs have changed since you launched your site.
  • Your website may require new features.

We would be happy to review your needs and suggest a plan which meets your needs. Contact us today!

Monitoring

All websites go down. Downtimes can last a matter of seconds or several hours. But regardless of the length of the downtime, it will impact you. Are you monitoring your site or are you simply relying on your hosting provider to let you know (usually after the fact) when a downtime happens?

Server monitoring is an essential component of website ownership and management.

YourPlatform provides 24/7/365 monitoring of your website. Our real-time monitoring service provides instant alerts when your site goes down and when the site is back online. For peace of mind, historical data is available, as well as trends to track the overall availability of your website.

Outages happen and servers go down. Data center networks have issues. YourPlatform will have your back!

WordPress CPR

Every WordPress site is unique and has its own challenges. You might be a blogger discussing your favorite restaurants and sharing images of your last meal or a local stylist trying to reach perspective clients. Perhaps you are a large company using WordPress as a part of the glue which holds your web infrastructure together.

There are different types of websites utilizing WordPress at different scales and complexity. What they all have in common, however, is the need to run smoothly and be highly available and safe from hackers.

[su_pullquote]Only 22% of WordPress sites are up to date[/su_pullquote]

Monitoring WordPress core updates and plugin updates and making sure they are installed is time consuming, as is testing the website after updates are installed.

With nearly 30,000 plugins available for WordPress, it’s no wonder that most site owners utilize multiple plugins on their sites. New updates are released on a daily bases. When was the last time you updated your plugins?

Updates are not just for adding new features to the WordPress core or to the plugins that you’ve installed. Important security releases occur on a routine basis. Keeping up with them is critical to make sure your site is not hacked!

Security

WordPress, like Microsoft Windows, is a target for hackers because it is a hugely successful and popular platform. Unfortunately studies show that most WordPress site owners do not take security seriously! More than 70% of WordPress sites are vulnerable to hacking. The number one reason is because most sites have not updated their wordpress core. YourPlatform, can help with it’s WordPress CPR service.

However, there is more to security than simply keeping your website and its plugins up-to-date. In fact, the best way to prevent malware and hackers from attacking your site is to prevent them from accessing it in the first place. We can help protect your site and improve its performance.

Backups

In the beginning of the web, in simpler times, we all had a lot less to worry about. Less nefarious folks lurking about hacking as many servers as they could find. Less common development platforms (ie. WordPress, Joomla, Drupal,  etc…). But there has always been the risk of lost data. Whether it be the files on a diskette or a cassette, backing up your valuable data has always been important. Yet, we are human. We never seem to do what we know we should because it’s intimidating, or takes too much time, or costs too much money, or etc…

[su_pullquote]93% of companies that lost their data center for 10 days or more due to a disaster filed for bankruptcy within one year of the disaster.[/su_pullquote]And then the inevitable eventually happens and you need that data. That important document, that song your child loves, or the website your business relies on. Then what do you do?

Website backups are an essential part of owning and maintaining a website. Having a process for backing up your website is important in case something happens like a malware attack or you accidentally erase or overwrite a file – having a copy on hand can minimize the stress and time of recovery.

Have peace of mind knowing that your site is automatically backed up. Daily, weekly, and monthly intervals are available and may be uploaded to a secure remote location depending upon your needs.
