Convenience, reliability, performance, and simplicity.
Struggling with web hosting? Hosting can be a huge drain on your internal resources since it requires vast amounts of time and expertise. In addition, you might face issues such as an offshore support system, server configuration errors, inadequate backups, poor response time, and down time. These problems can hurt your business!
ImageWorks is ready to come to the rescue! Our solutions are simply better because they are tailor-made for our clients. We manage all of your hosting issues so that you can sit back and relax. After all, we are your host! (No, we won’t go grab you pretzels and a beer – we’re not that kind of host!)
For smaller sites, we offer shared hosting maintained on our own private VPS server. Shared servers use shared resources and are the industry price leaders. The problem is many commodity shared hosting sites (like GoDaddy) are grouped with other “sketchy” sites that share your resources, and are prone to hackers and viruses. Ours’ is a private server for only our clients. We include one free support ticket per year, for any technical issue. Note: All CMS sites will need security & version updates. This takes a minimum of 10 hours per year, and is usually handled via our website and brand maintenance & evolution packages which offer discounted rates.

If you don’t perform these updates, your site will eventually break in newer browsers making this a must have service. Time required for moving a site, or setting up a new site, is billed $500 flat fee.
This type of hosting allows us to set up an independent server just for your company and allocate resources for your specific needs. Nothing is shared - it is your own private server. Your database, server software, hardware, and bandwidth are not shared and are allocated only to you. This is recommended for most companies and is the preferred hosting solution. A one-time $500 is billed to setup your new server properly and to move your existing site over to the new server. We include one free support ticket per year, for any technical issue. Note: All CMS sites will need security & version updates. This takes a minimum of 10 hours per year, and is usually handled via our website and brand maintenance & evolution packages which offer discounted rates.

Although we prefer to host your site on our servers, we understand that some companies have special circumstances that require them to host their site elsewhere. However, we do have a few requirements:
*If these requirements cannot be met, we can ZIP up your web files and have your IT administrator or engineer install the site. We cannot assist or support 3rd party server set-ups (unless the conditions above are met), as too many factors that are out of our control come into play and may hinder success.
