Update: Hosting Services

No More Hosting from WebSociety

Ending Hosting Services

We are making some changes to the services we provide here at WebSociety.

We have been providing hosting account management for many of our clients the last 3 years.
But we have decide to end this service.

There are number of reasons for this;

  • Hosting services are now more user friendly
  • Most providers now offer 24/7 on-line support
  • It is more prudent for clients to control and manage company domain and hosting
  • It is be more cost effective for clients
What does this mean for my Business?

Although we are ending hosting services we will continue to provide a web admin service.

Ultimately you will set-up and control access to your own host account but WebSociety can manage web admin services for your company.

We believe that this in all our clients best interests.

What will happen my site?

We are committed to making this shift as painless as possible for you.
We have a partnership with our current hosting company who will assist you setting up an account.

Once you have created an account, WebSociety will transfer the site on your behalf.

The deadline for site transfer is 30th June 2019

If you have any questions or concerns, please email us.
