Protect Your Digital Investment with Local Web Hosting

The Benefits of Local Web Hosting

Where you host your website and other important business applications matters. Protecting your investment that you've made in your digital assets only makes sense for businesses of all sizes, and at Swell Development, we enjoy walking customers through the benefits of hosting through our internal servers. There may be some advantages of hosting your digital assets on a local server that you may not have thought of. 

Peace of Mind

Your website is the digital face of your business, and it exists in a space where most of your customers engage with content, as well as consume products and services. You have likely made a sizeable investment in your website to make it look as professional as possible, plus attributed time and energy into social media initiatives to drive traffic to your site. After all of that time and energy, how detrimental is it to your business to have your website down, or to have it load so slowly that it's useless to your consumers? Hosting with large companies out of the country can have this impact on your website and applications. Overseas hosting companies frequently oversell bandwidth, and load servers well beyond their functional capacity, leaving your website, products, and services unavailable to your customers. 


The issues commonly associated with out-of-country hosting services lead nicely into another advantage of local hosting - ease of access to the company hosting your site or applications. If you have any issues at all with your digital assets, one phone call to Swell allows us to get to work on your issue immediately. There's no waiting until your provider in India gets to work, sorts through hundreds of emails from other customers and then assigns a work order to your complaint. Swell is accessible and responsive to your needs, and will work to keep your investment online and your business booming. 

Active Security 

At Swell, we monitor your sites for malicious software and hackers trying to gain access to your site or application. We are alerted when malicious activity is taking place and can react quickly to make sure your site is safe and business is uninterrupted. We are so responsive, our customers will rarely notice that any such malicious activity took place - and more importantly, their customers don't notice any down time or issues, either. 

If you would like to learn more about our hosting services and discuss your requirements, feel free to email  or call us at 231.649.8077. We're happy to walk you through our processes, and provide some options for your specific requirements. Our pricing is competitive with other local hosting companies, and even similar to overseas hosting companies - all with the superior functionality and customer service you'll experience by working with Swell Development.
