Along with the long history SOS has in Internet services, we offer comprehensive hosting services for our clients. There are thousands of companies providing Internet hosting services. You want to know why SOS should be your choice. Because SOS is small we can tailor Internet hosting services to your needs. From e-commerce solutions to secure email to just about anything you can dream up, SOS can implement the solution. Most Internet hosting companies expect the customer to be self sufficient in terms of setting up a web site. SOS provides service and solutions to assure clients that their site is stable, secure and recoverable.
Some ISP's offer server farms connected by redundant electrical grids, redundant network connections via multiple providers, all with the goal of maintaining up-time in case of natural disaster or other catastrophe. This is nice, but most small businesses aren't too worried about their website uptime if the atom bomb goes off nearby. I know that I'm not. Instead, we focus on the much more likely obstacles such as: preventing hacking by implementing superior firewall technology, preventing spam and unsolicited commercial email, regular web and email backups, email archiving, sender ID authentication for spoof free email, real customer service, and solutions to improve web site traffic. So, read on:
Microsoft IIS Web Site Hosting
SOS is a Microsoft "shop" in that we have standardized on Microsoft Windows Server for our Internet Services. Windows Server is the core of our operations and provides a very robust and distributed network architecture. Microsoft IIS also encorporates Microsoft Frontpage and Expression Web extensions. In the twelve years that we have used Microsoft Windows Server products for hosting solutions downtime has been minimal. We wouldn't rely on anything else.
Our Domain Name Service infrastructure employs servers across multiple networks separated geographically. This in itself isn't quite as important as the nature of our DNS offerings. We can implement DomainKey and DKIM technology as well as Sender ID. These technologies are integrated as special DNS records to assure receiving email servers that your email is legitimate and not "spoofed" via unscrupulous spam engines. This also adds another layer of protection onto email to ensure its proper delivery.
As a part of e-commerce solutions as well as many general web solutions, SOS can offer extensive encrypted certificate solutions for your business. From signing and encrypting email to providing new Extended Validation certs (green bars in web browsers) for sites, we have extensive experience in encryption and certificate technologies.
Email is the lifeblood of many businesses. SOS offers a complete array of email services. POP, IMAP, HTTP, TLS (encryption), we have all the acronyms covers. Need Microsoft Exchange? We can do it. Need mail sent to your PDA? We can do it. Need to synch POP mail with Outlook or a PDA? We can do it. Need to kill your spam? We can do it. Archive old mail or warehouse employee mail? Webmail with calendar synchronization with Outlook? We can do it. Our email services allow a domain administrator to be assigned to a domain. That admin can create and delete email accounts, change passwords, and perform myriad actions associated with that domain's email services.
SQL Server, MySQL. Yeah, that too. Database services are frequently needed by many Internet applications. We can provide these services along with quality backup services to ensure that databases are recoverable.
Everything Else and the Kitchen Sink.
FTP and Secure FTP, Perl and PHP, Traffic reports, image galleries, you name it, SOS can implement it.
