What’s the difference between Webmaster Services Hawaii’s managed hosting and other economy hosting services?

Shared hosting from Godaddy or Blue host is cheap for a reason. You are 100 thousand percent on your own and if your website goes down or heaven forbid gets hacked you are on your own. If you do need help from those shared hosting companies you will have long wait times on the phone or on chat. Most of the time they will just tell you to contact your developer.  Most of the time you might not even know what questions to ask them. Other times you might get a hold of someone but for the most part the first person you talk to is entry level at best.

Now that we have talked about up-time which is very important… The other elephant in the room is plugins and keeping your site updated.  There are a few ways that most websites get hacked and one of the main ones is not having your website updated regularly. We install iTheme security that dose a bunch of security add-on’s that we will discuss later but one of the main ones is to keep both WordPress and your plugins updated.  Every single time your plugin gets updated we update it on your site auto magically.

Webmaster Services Hawaii specializes in WordPress Design and development however we are also fully versed in other content management systems such as OpenCart, Drupal and Joomla.

Our in-house WooCommerce experts can help take the pain out of your e-commerce management — from platform maintenance/upkeep to implementing critical updates. Our goal is to keep your e-commerce site online, so you can continue to generate sales.

Our e-commerce consultants can guide you through your site migration, help you with payment and shipping options and performance-tune your site to give your customers an optimal shopping experience.

WordPress Brute Force Protection

Limit the number of failed login attempts allowed per user with WordPress brute force protection. If someone is trying to guess your password, they’ll get locked out after a few attempts.

1X_Hosting_Small-Icon_17

File Change Detection

If someone manages to get into your site, they’ll probably add, remove or change a file. Get email alerts showing any recent file changes so you know if you’ve been hacked.

1X_Hosting_Small-Icon_08

404 Detection

If a bot is scanning your site for vulnerabilities, it will generate a lot of 404 errors. iThemes Security will lock out that IP after the limit you set (20 errors in 5 minutes by default).

1X_Hosting_Small-Icon_06

Strong Password Enforcement

Set which level of users on your site (admins, editors, users, etc.) need to have strong passwords. Strong password enforcement is one of the best ways to lock down WordPress.

1X_Hosting_Small-Icon_20

Lock Out Bad Users

Keep bad users away from your site if they have too many failed login attempts, if they generate too many 404 errors, or if they’re on a bot blacklist.

1X_Hosting_Small-Icon_13

Away Mode

Not making changes to your site 24 hours a day? Harden WordPress by making the WordPress dashboard inaccessible during specific hours so no one else can sneak in and attempt to make changes.

1X_Hosting_Small-Icon_15

Hide Login & Admin

Change the default URL of your WordPress login area so attackers won’t know where to look. This feature is also great to help clients remember their login link.

1X_Hosting_Small-Icon_18

Database Backups

Schedule database backups and have them emailed to you. Or you can get our WordPress backup plugin to step up your backup game. Make complete backups and send them to off-site storage destinations.

1X_Hosting_Small-Icon_19

Email Notifications

Get email notifications when someone gets locked out after too many failed login attempts or when a file on your site has been changed.

Frequently Asked Questions

How is payment made?

To make billing as simiple as possible we prorate to the end of the year and then bill yearly on the fist of January.

Who will I speak to if something goes wrong?

Gary Wells is the owner of Webmaster Services Hawaii and is directly responsible for all aspects of your hosting account. All comunication will go directly through him.

For your security do I need to pay extra for that?

No! Our job is to keep both your site and our servers running optimally. Keeping your site up and running and patched correctly is a win win for both of us.

Are SSL Certificates Free?

Yes!  I use a service called Lets Encrypt. For most website accounts I automagically include an SSL certificate free of charge. If you do need a more advanced certificate (only 1% of clients need this) I can use whatever SSL certificate you would request. 

Is your hosting US based?

Yes! Our primary hosting facility is based in San Fransco CA. We also have other server locations availible in the US depending on where your customers are its recomended that you have your server located as close to that location as possible. Either facility delivers fantastic speeds globally, however for best performance we’d recommend that during checkout you choose the facility closest to the majority of your visitors. You can also enable a free CloudFlare CDN from your control panel which will serve up static content such as images from over 100 global locations serving every continent, speeding up service to your visitors wherever they are.

Do you assist with site migration?

Yes we do. 90% of the time this can be handled free of charge but it depends on your current set up. If by chance somthing goes wrong our experts will do the best we can to get the site migrated for the lowest price possible. 

Still Not Sure If Our Hosting Is Right for You?
