We are just a small web hosting company providing web hosting mostly to clients. Sometimes someone comes along who simply just needs web hosting. We have opened up our servers to others who need web hosting. We promise you that you will not find better hosting anywhere else.
Since we are small we don’t overload our servers with websites. We purchase the best hardware and services to make sure your website runs super fast. Your hosting is managed by just one person here at Delaware Web Hosting who has intimate knowledge about your website and will be able to assist you whenever a problem may ever come up and you need assistance.
When it comes to technical support there is only me. My name is Gerry and I’ll be your technical support contact. My phone number is (302) 613-4638 or you can contact me via email at [email protected] and I’ll quickly help you solve whatever issues you might be having with the website. But pretty much, I doubt you’ll have any issues. It’s very rare and this support job is rather boring because nobody seems to ever need support. I may sometimes deal with a customer who’s having trouble setting up their email on their computer but that’s about it. In that case we’ll do a Skype session together and I’ll walk you thru the setup.
You’ll get good quality service. That’s what you’ll get. We don’t really place limits on customers accounts. I log into the server ever day and assess each hosting customers needs. If they need a little more bandwidth then I’ll issue it to make sure their site(s) stay operating normally. If there’s a problem with your site and my provider notifies me of a problem I will log into your account to solve the issue that my provider is asking me to solve. When I create your account you’ll be able to host one domain name. If you want to be able to host more domain names just let me know. I’ll be happy to set that up for you. This server is shared by a very small group of people and we all pitch in on the maintenance costs of this server.
Delaware Web Hosting also provides every website that we host with a free SSL (Secure Socket Layer) for their website if they wish. I provide this service by using CloudFlare’s free SSL service that they offer. I will configure your site’s DNS to use CloudFlare using my own account and do all the SSL setup for you. If at any time you wish to discontinue hosting you’re still in control of your domain name and can change your nameservers to whichever host you decided to move to. We haven’t lost a hosting customer yet.
Yes, that’s right. You’re not guaranteed that we’ll accept your business and be able to get hosting on our servers. I will vet each website to determine if they would be a suitable candidate to be hosted on our server. Our server host’s local Delaware area businesses only. In rare instances I’ll let a person who’s not in the area host on our server but it’s primarily only for Delaware businesses and consumers.
Sites that we don’t host on our servers would be websites which could potentially contain anything illegal or offensive content. There is no net neutrality, I will also suspend providing services to websites which post offensive or inappropriate content. But other than that, if you’re a Delaware business then your chances of being hosted here is pretty high so contact me. I would love to speak or email with you about your hosting needs and welcome you onto our server.
I really don’t like to bill people. I hate asking for money but you know, sometimes I gotta do it. We charge every person who uses the server $150.00 each year. Once we get more people on the server I’ll use the extra money which our group paid into the maintenance and upgrade our server even further. Our server currently has a 32 core processor, 8GB of RAM with SSD (Solid State Hard Drives). It’s way more than enough for our needs and we’ll keep it that way.
Being hosted on our server comes with responsibility. I’ll send you an invoice a month before the hosting is due and I’ll send regular reminders both 14 days before the invoice is due, and 7 days before the invoice is due. If funds are tight don’t worry. At the very least let me know funds are tight so we can make arrangements to keep your site online and be fair with the rest of the people being hosted on our server.
The creation of hosting accounts are manually done by myself. Once payment has been received by someone who is starting their hosting with us we’ll create your account and give you the credentials to move or build your site on the server. If you need assistance moving your website from another host we’ll be happy to help with that at no charge.
If you have any questions about the hosting please email me and ask, my email is [email protected]. I will answer whatever questions you might have very promptly, normally within 24 hours.
Thank you so much for your interest in having your website(s) hosted here at Delaware Web Hosting. I look forward to doing business with you and happy you stopped by.
