Keeping your site online, backed up, secure, and delivering results.
Introducing Habitat Hosting
The five worst days in Monkee-Boy history all center around hosting – hands down, without question.
Our site was down. Our clients' websites were down. Everyone was understandably stressed, and our hands tied by terrible tech support at one of the nation's larger hosting providers. It wasn't fun and created a lot of gray hairs, honestly.
We thought to ourselves, "what's the point of building amazing websites if they don't have a stable place to live, and produce the results our clients need?"
And thus, Habitat Hosting was born.
Monkee-Boy believes in supporting our work and those organizations that trust us to safeguard it, so as a result Habitat Hosting was created to do just that – protect their investment.
Habitat is our own, dedicated WordPress and M-Pire Enterprise CMS hosting server that does one thing and one thing well – keep your site online, secure, and supporting your investment. We have removed all open doors, plugged all holes, removed email, and terminated FTP access. We have locked down ad hoc plug-in installations and require that everyone has a super-secure password. We also require that any security updates, specifically to the WordPress core and plugins, stay 100% up-to-date – no exceptions.
Habitat Hosting is how you, and we, sleep well at night.
Other benefits include:
- Managed by our Monkee-Boy staff, so we don't have to wait on other company's tech support
- Dedicated onsite and offsite backup – daily, weekly and monthly
- Round-the-clock uptime monitoring
- Expedites the unique M-Pire Enterprise CMS production environments
- Scales to your needs
- Speeds up the launch process by weeks
- Removes launch migration efforts/costs
- Reduces/eliminates the back & forth coordination between our team and your IT team
Secure WordPress Hosting
As an organization, we only support and suggest tools that we believe can do the job. WordPress is one of these and is a fantastic tool and is the most popular CMS on the planet. Being the best, however, usually puts a target on your back though so WordPress has received some less than stellar reviews from companies who do not know how to properly secure it and protect it from the mean people and robots in the world.
Good news - we know how to secure it, and we do it very well!
If you have a WordPress site and need a trusted partner to host it and keep it updated and secure, look no further.
Secure Web Hosting
Similar to WordPress hosting, our M-Pire Enterprise CMS clients are also eligible to host on the Habitat server to ensure that their site is safe, secure, and reliably supporting their business. Some of Texas's biggest brands trust our web hosting.
Heck, this site (monkee-boy.com) not only uses our M-Pire CMS but also lives on the same Habitat server. We've got skin in the game too.
BYOS - Bring Your Own Server
Simply because we offer secure hosting doesn't mean you are required to use it! Hosting with us simply takes one more thing off you and your IT staff's plate, giving your team one phone number to call if something happens to your site.
Should you want to use a different provider or an internal server, that's completely fine. We've worked closely with IT teams in the past to make sure they have what they need, and your investment is protected, even if that hosting is not under our supervision.
Additionally, if you aren't ready to host with us, please talk with us first. After 20 years in the business, we know which hosting providers are worth your time and which ones you'll want to avoid. We are happy to provide some recommended hosting providers that we trust and let you know how their services differ from ours so you can make a qualified decision.
