Website Hosting & WordPress Maintenance


As a value-added service to my clients, I host their websites on my private servers along side my own sites for a fraction of what it would cost to get the same setup at another host. As a result, RDK Creative hosting is available to my clients only. If you want to be hosted on my servers and are not a client please contact me to discuss your needs.

No matter which host you choose there’s one thing you will have to know and accept.

You’re on your own.

You’re the one that needs to take a pro-active role in the day-to-day management of your website. The host makes sure there aren’t any problems with the network and hardware of the servers themselves but they don’t monitor and maintain your particular site.

If your site goes down it’s up to you to submit a ticket and find out why. If your sites are slow it’s up to you to figure out how to make them faster. You’re responsible for backups, applying software updates, monitoring and performance. Most people don’t know about these aspects of technology and want to be bothered with it either.

Hosting with me on my server means reliability and performance. It includes the following benefits:

  • Personal support
  • Pro-active up-time monitoring
  • Daily off-site backups
  • Powerful servers with no overcrowding
  • 100% Pure SSD Storage
  • Highly optimized for performance

Like taxes, downtime is inevitable. No host on the planet will guarantee 100% uptime, myself included. But when your site goes down it’s your responsibility to inform the host. Most of my clients don’t even know their site is down. Usually it’s your customers who tell you they can’t get on your site and then it’s panic time for you. Hosting with me means you don’t have to worry about it. It’s getting handled even without you telling me.

What sets me apart is that I pro-actively monitor websites on my server for uptime and I’m notified within 1 minute of a site coming down. I then start watching it and if the site isn’t back within 5 minutes I’m on the phone with my admins to look into the issue.

Daily off-site backups. As an added service I keep separate daily backups of each site on my server at a separate remote location with the 3 most recent days always available.

Powerful servers with no overcrowding. Performance is a big issue for the web. It not only helps search engine rankings but makes for a smoother customer experience. The business model of other hosts is designed to overcrowd their servers. Most of the times you’re being hosted with hundreds, if not thousands of other websites. This is a disaster waiting to happen as one of those websites can hog the server resources causing your site to be unresponsive.

My servers are never overcrowded and utilize the latest technology and hardware specs. As a result our uptime and performance is outstanding.

Weekly WordPress software, plugin and theme updates. WordPress (WP) is a Content Management System that powers millions of websites around the world. It’s such a popular choice that 99% of my clients are running WP sites. WP is an actively managed software system with regular security updates and patches. To minimize security threats and ensure high performance it’s critical to keep the software updated.

As an additional add-on, each week, I go into your site and make sure the software is up-to-date. If there’s an update I’ll apply it. If it breaks something with your site I’ll fix it. With any other host it’s your responsibility to keep your site updated.
