Sentree is web hosting, but it’s also much more than that.
First, we’ve ratcheted web hosting to the cutting edge, delivering a level of performance and security that’s hard to come by. We’ve accomplished this with a winning combination of clustered servers, dual web application firewalls, Content Delivery Networks, redundant caching, optional automatic asset compression and concatenation, and even multiple data centers spread around the globe.
Next, we took into account the unique needs presented by Content Management Systems (WordPress & Drupal). It’s estimated that nearly 50% of websites run on a CMS, and of those, more than 50% run on WordPress. For good reason, too – WordPress presents a stellar feature set combined with a phenomenal ease of use. With such a high percentage of the web built on this platform, though, it has become a challenge to secure it against the growing tide of hackers and malware. Enter Sentree. Our hosting service is combined with features tailored to WordPress (and Drupal, too!), keeping it safe, secure, and speedy. We perform all vulnerability updates for you, monitor uptime, scan for malware, limit admin access by IP address, back up the site daily, and even manually review the site each time we install updates.
We’ve managed to do all this while still keeping our entry-level plan at roughly the cost of a meal out for 1 each month. What’s more, our service is risk free, so you can cancel within 30 days for a full refund, or any time for a prorated refund. Keep reading to learn how we stack up against the competition!
Unlike typical shared hosting, Sentree runs your website on a redundant cluster of servers to ensure your website stays up, even during regular maintenance, unexpected outages, and network problems. We monitor not only our servers, but also your website specifically, to ensure nothing is causing you downtime. Security is only as strong as it's weakest component. We keep our servers shielded not only by securing the servers themselves, but by securing each individual website we host. We provide a firewall to stop hackers, malware scans to ensure your website is free from hacks, and monitoring of all alerts so you don't have to do anything. In addition, unlike many of the shared hosts we're all familiar with, we don't overload our servers. Speed and performance are tantamount, and we make sure your website is fast, even as it grows.
Sentree provides all the services other managed hosting providers do, but with even more hands-on website management. All of our sites are hosted on a redundant clustered environment for high availability. We monitor for security updates in all software on your website, including plugins and themes, and update the software as needed. We set up a Web Application Firewall and malware scanning, customized for your site, and then monitor for all alerts - investigating the alerts and resolving any problems that arise. This all happens like clockwork, each and every day. What's more, we are available and able to handle support requests from our users, from creating a new email address or DNS record, to restoring your website to a previous state (up to 90 days prior). All this is included in the hosting fee you pay.
Hosting internally puts a tremendous burden on you and your staff. What's more, most companies do not have the internal resources to create or maintain the type of infrastructure that we do, meaning that your site is likely to underperform compared to the speed, uptime, and security we're able to provide. We handle the entire hosting environment, including setting up redundant servers, DNS management, server and website monitoring, security, software updates, and more. We ensure your site stays up, so you and your IT team are free to focus on running your business.
