Take full control of your online media
I hope you all enjoyed the holidays and best success for 2013! Last blog I talked about what sets Saltmedia apart from some other web companies. Specializing in the same award winning web software that big names like Harvard university, McDonalds and E-Bay use is one of the reasons. But the Biggest reason is Saltmedia highly values online freedom. You own your website and you domain name 100% No paying clients have left us, but if they did they can transfer their website and domain name to a new hosting provider and the website would obtain 100% of its functionality. Yes, amazing… I know. Make sure to ask the right questions when interviewing web firms. Why “rent or lease a website when you can own it. Take full control of your online media with Saltmedia.

What is hosting?

What is hosting?
Hosting is where your website and email live. Hosting is like apartment buildings where a website and email would share a suite.  A websites home provides security and accessibility to anyone with an Internet connection.  Web Hosting can vary, just like apartment buildings do. For a website or email to work, it must have somewhere to live - Hosting.  Renting space from a hosting server provides your website with all the services it entails.  For example - It could be a small bare empty apartment or you could rent a bigger fully furnished apartment with a great view.  Regarding websites, a better view metaphorically speaking would give you a faster and more reliable service.  A good web hosting plan is foundation for growth. That's why Saltmedia provides reliable, flexible, cost-effective web hosting.
