A boutique is a small specialty shop. The kind of place that provides a high level of personal service and attention. MIS was one of the very first Boutique Website Hosting companies. When you call a Web Hosting Boutique, not only will you talk to a live person right away, but that person will be willing and able to help.
What About “Bargain Hosting”?
You’ve seen the advertisements; web hosting for less than $5 per month, under $50 per year. These are great deals, right? Especially with all that’s included: amazing amounts of disk space, unlimited email accounts, and gigabytes of bandwidth. They have to be a good deal, don’t they?
Not so fast. If the old saying is true that you get what you pay for (and it almost always is), then if you’re not paying very much, doesn’t it stand to reason that you’re not getting very much?
What you’re most likely not getting is good service. If you email or call one of these bargain companies for service, their response (when it finally arrives) will most likely come from an off-shore support company, where a phone-drone will read you an answer off of a script.
And how good will that answer be, if they’re only charging you $50 per year and a good IT consultant can easily charge over $1000 per day?
Can You Afford “Bargain Hosting”?
If your website is hosted by one of the many bottom-dollar, high volume hosting companies, chances are that they reduce their cost by using a control panel. This is an interface that allows the customer (you) to do almost anything to the site. In fact, you can count on you doing pretty much everything yourself because, at their prices, they can’t afford to provide any service.
Maybe you can do it yourself. Or maybe you have someone on your staff who can do it. But how much does that cost you, directly and indirectly in time lost from doing other things?
The Frugal Alternative
Instead of control panels, MIS has a “panel of experts”; real people whose job and goal is to help you take care of your website. We provide service and support that warehouse hosting companies can’t afford. Host your website with us and spend your time running your business instead of running your website.
