Why choose Virtual Creations for hosting?

 

First of all, what is "hosting" anyway?

Let's use an analogy: Imagine that you want to build a website. Think of this website as a house. Before you can build your house, you need some land to build it on. In the analogy, that "land" is the hosting - somewhere to put your website. In other words, "hosting" is to "website" what "land" is to "house". To be technical, hosting is space on the hard drive of a server (fancy computer) somewhere. (Without stretching the analogy too far, we can also say that your "domain name" is the "address" of the house.) So anyway, if you want a website, then you need someone to provide you with this "land".

That's where we come in! Not only can we build you the house (website), but we can provide you somewhere to put it (a hosting account).

There are plenty of hosting providers out there. Thousands of them. Mostly they're big corporates with thousands of servers and hundreds of thousands of clients. So why pick us? Why choose Virtual Creations for your hosting? Because we've got it all:

  • We're personal and friendly. You can get us on the phone anytime, day or night. Not an automated "press #1 for sales" phone queue, not a call centre in Bangladesh, but a real, live person who knows what they're talking about, and can describe it to you in plain, non-technical language. Someone who can demystify the endless technicalities of having a website (like our "house" analogy above - nice, huh?). And most importantly, someone who cares! It makes a difference to us whether or not you are happy with the service we provide you, so we bend over backwards to do it well!
  • We're capable and professional. We've been doing this Internet thing since 1997, and before that we were doing programming and other hard-core technical wizardry - since 1983! We've got hundreds of clients just like you, so we've seen just about every hosting issue that can be seen, and know how to fix them.
  • We run our own servers - several of them, all around the world. All of them in enormous data-centres, with failsafes, backup power, emergency systems, etc. We pay a team of boffins to be on-site in these datacentres in case anything goes wrong (they seldom do - perhaps we should rethink that team of expensive boffins).

 

In other words, we're great. Pick us!
