Webhosting

Does your small business need a website? I can get your business online quickly. My main business is translation, but having run websites and managed webservers for two decades, I’m also very familiar with webhosting. Whether you’re looking to add a language to your website or just establish an online presence for the first time, I can assist. My webhosting is for small businesses, but you’ll get the same state-of-the-art technology used by big businesses. If you’ve never set up a website before, I can install WordPress for you. This content management system will allow you to publish pages without any coding experience. It also has webforms for communicating with your customers and various other plugins that will help you grow your business.

Domain Registration

Do you want an e-mail address that looks like [email protected]? You’ll need to register a domain. If you’ve already got one that you’ve never gotten around to using, don’t worry, all you need to do is contact the registrar and get them to change the nameservers for the domain, and you can point the domain at my webserver. If you need a domain, I can register it for you, and if you use my webhosting service, I’ll include the domain free of charge (.com,  .net, .org, .info, .pro and .me only).

WordPress Maintenance

Simply setting up your website may not be enough. If you don’t have the time to learn how to keep your site up to date, you’ll need someone else to do it. Without the necessary security upgrades, your site will be susceptible to malicious attacks.

FAQ

Why should I host with you?

You might be wondering why you’d choose to host your site with Carmical Translations rather than one of the more famous webhosting companies out there. It’s a good question. If you know how to build and run a website, those you see advertising on TV are fine. What I’m offering is managed hosting. I’ll help you get a WordPress website set up, and I’ll make sure it stays up to date in terms of security. You give me the content, and I’ll get it on the site.

I’ll also make sure you don’t run into problems like this local Tri-Cities company:

Slow loading site

This site gets an F on its PageSpeed. It takes more than 9 seconds to fully load. Google’s research has shown that people will leave a site if it doesn’t load in three seconds or less. Don’t lose customers because of a slow-loading site!

Can I upgrade or downgrade?

Absolutely. Anytime. And if you decide you can handle it on your own and you want to go with another host, I’ll help you get set up at the new place (has to be a host that runs cPanel).

What if I need more work than the hours included in my plan?

I’ll still be happy to help, but if the work requires more time than your plan includes, it will be billed at a rate of $45 an hour. I will never perform work without your consent, so there will never be any hidden fees.

What do you mean you'll install a theme?

There are thousands of WordPress themes out there. I’ll install the theme of your choice and help you populate it with your content. If you need customizations, that will cost extra, and if you need an original design, I can refer you to a trusted colleague for that.

What forms of payment do you accept?

I am only accepting Paypal for webhosting and domain registration at this time.

What is your cancellation policy?

If you cancel within 30 days, I’ll refund the entire amount of the webhosting portion of your payment. If you ordered a domain, I will have to deduct the cost of the domain ($20), because there is no way for me to cancel that once it is ordered (of course, you keep the domain).

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
