I’m going to stray a little from my normal mode of posting today and talk a little about my hosting service. I started this blog back in September in an attempt to help promote my main website North Forty Wildlife Art, which displays the most recent paintings I have created since becoming a full-time wildlife artist.
I searched the web for several weeks searching for a web hosting company that could meet the needs of my website. I basically had two criteria at that point. The first was reliability. The hosting service had to be realiable enough to keep my site up 24 hours a day 7 days a week with few interruptions. The second requirement was affordability. Taking on an uncertain career like wildlife art meant I would have to find a way to promote my art without breaking the bank.
After a pretty exhaustive search of comments about hosting services, I finally settled on Arvixe Web Hosting. Let me tell you, I’m really glad I did. I now have four websites hosted with Arvixe on two different hosting accounts. The fees are very reasonable, at only $5.00 per month for my ASP hosting account, and $4.00 per month for my Linux account. They even have a 60-day money back guarantee, if you’re not satisfied.
Since I’ve been with Arvixe, I’ve had numerous questions about my sites. Arvixe has a 24/7 customer service chat line that is always there when I need them. The operators have always been extremely helpful in every situation I’ve been confronted with. No matter what problem I have, Arvixe has someone with the answers to get me back on track.
In the time I have been with Arvixe, my website has not be down at all. Their servers are fast and reliable. Their administrative software is easy to use and allows me to manage every aspect of my web sites right from my computer. Uploading my websites was as simple as running my ftp software and transferring my files. And when I opened my account, my server space was ready to get up in running in a matter of minutes.
Arvixe offers numerous types of services with their web hosting accounts and they have a hosting account for every type of need. So if you’ve ever wanted to set up your own website, Arvixe is the company that I highly recommend. And if you sign up through one of the ads in this post, Arvixe will pay me as part of their affiliate program, which is another advantage of being an Arvixe customer and I need all the help I can get at this point in my career. But I recommend them because I am very impressed with their service.
So click one of the Arvixe banners in this post and get your website up and running today. Until next time, keep your brushes clean, your colors pure, and as always, thanks for stopping by the North Forty.
