We offer full service hosting to nonprofits and other organizations and individuals looking for stable, secure, scalable web hosting solutions. We use state-of-the-art systems to make sure that your website stays up and available, and we offer a range of options depending on your needs. But what really sets us apart is our commitment to hands on monitoring and support. We don’t just respond when a problem crops up. We proactively manage our hosting infrastructure to keep it running as smoothly as possible, and we take care of things like backups and redundancy so you can be sure that if something does happen your data will be safe. We have experienced systems administrators on call 24/7 in case of emergency, and always available during normal business hours for support requests and questions. You can focus on your work knowing that your web properties are being managed by knowledgeable experts.
Why Echo & Co. Hosting?
24/7 site-level monitoring
We'll respond when your site is inaccessible. Budget web hosts only monitor the server, but we will work to ensure your website is always available for viewing by using 5-minute site level monitoring that alerts us of any disturbance, day or night. In the unlikely event of a interruption in service, we’ll be actively working on it even without the need to reach out to us.
We install various methods of caching and other performance enhancements at the operating system, database, web server and application level, including PHP Opcode caching, and more. Budget web hosts will not include these out of the box or will charge additional fees.
We prepare for outages are nearly every point in our architecture. Built into our Performance Shared and Custom Dedicated packages are redundancy in everything from firewalls to load balancers and servers. If any link in the chain goes down, your website remains online. In the event of a worst-case scenario, we also feature a second-site alternative that is located in a geographically separate data center. We replicate all our data (including databases in real time) to our second site for absolute redundancy.
We include backups in our monthly fees. Budget web hosts either rely on you to create a custom backup solution on your own, or will charge additional fees.
We have over five years of experience hosting the kind of websites that we've built, so we know how they work at every level. If an issue with your website configuration causes a problem, we have the tools ready to diagnose it. Budget web hosts only provide the operating system and network; everything else is up to you.
