"Restricted Access" is a special status of web hosting account for some websites: you will not be able to make changes to the files on the server that require specialized programming ability or that may damage your website. This status generally applies to dynamic websites or websites with a Content Management System.
Why the concern?
With static sites, there is almost nothing that a person working on the site can do to damage the server. What they type into the page is passed, mostly unmodified, to the browser. Since the server isn't really looking at the source of the page, there is almost no danger.
With dynamic sites, each page may require a bit of work on the part of the server to create the final page. Through carelessness, it is possible to ask the server to do so much that it can literally cause the server to slow down or completely stop. If there are other sites on the server, they can be affected too! Imagine what headaches it would cause if one site could cause other sites to stop working.
What does WAE Tech do?
For static sites, we don't do much of anything. Since the sites are essentially benign, we grant you access to the source code to modify to your whim. We ensure that there is no way to mix custom and/or dynamic code into the site as a precaution.
If your site is dynamic, then we allow you access to view the code (it's your code, right!) but we do not allow you to modify the code at all. We have especially trained programmers that handle this sort of code and can ensure that all the sites on a server play nicely with each other.
Why is WAE Tech so careful?
To many businesses, their website is part of their lifeline. We do not want anything to disrupt their website and make it 404 - Not Found. If you want to code in PHP, Cold Fusion, ASP, or Perl, and want to modify the code yourself, we'd be happy to recommend a host for you... just contact us! If you want a hosting company that values your business and will protect your investment... well, contact us!
How do I know if my website is dynamic or static?
If you've heard the terms "Server Script", "ASP", "Cold Fusion", "PHP", "Perl", or "Database" in conjunction with your site, then your site is most likely be a dynamic site. If you modify your own website, and feel that you don't know how to program, then you most likely have a static site.
Customer Protection/Restricted Access
Unlike other hosting companies, we do not offer open hosting accounts for unknown parties. We offer managed website hosting that provides the highest level of security, convenience, and protection to our clients. For more information about our restricted hosting, see the informational box to the right.
Static Sites vs. Dynamic Sites
Most sites on the web are static sites. These sites have content that does not change and that does not require processing on the server to create. Often times, these sites are managed through applications such as Front Page. A static hosting account will generally suffice for these sites.
Dynamic sites, on the other hand, are much more complicated. The information on the pages may be changing frequently. Examples include news sites and online stores. Updating dynamic pages requires a knowledge of computer programming that is well outside of what most clients are comfortable. A dynamic hosting account is required for websites in this category.
We have hosting packages for both static sites and dynamic sites that offer different levels of access to the server. See the information to the right to get a better understanding of why we offer different packages.
Each hosting account comes with a customized management package--we take care of the website maintenance for you. This relieves you from having to learn Internet technology or hire someone to do it for you. For text and image changes to static portions of a website, WAE Technologies offers the following maintenance packages:
|Basic: 2 changes per month||Included|
|7 changes per month||$25/month|
|Unlimited changes per month||$70/month|
|Changes of page format (including, but not limited, navigation changes, data tables, and new pages) are not covered under this cost. Such changes will be negotiated using the billable rate at the time of service.|
Search Engine and Pay-Per-Click Advertising
We offer a full range of services. Detailed information about each service can be found in our Search Engine Management Services.
|* Note: this service is included FREE with every custom website.|
|Search Engine Assistance||$90/quarter|
|Each PPC service (e.g. Google AdWords, Yahoo! Search Marketing, Microsoft adCenter) requires a separate PPC Management Service. Charges to credit cards for 3rd party services will be charged by the vendor, not by WAE Technologies.|
