Started to Look for a Hosting Service

We were thinking about what we were going to do for quite awhile, but now that we almost have the site online we are not really prepared to pick a hosting service just yet. We are not quite certain what we need. Of course the IT guys claim that they can easily build us a cheap Windows server, which of course they could pretty easily. The problem is that we can not really dedicate the manpower to make sure that we have a reliable hosting solution. Obviously you can not have a server which works less than 99 percent of the time. You can not have any down time at all. It has to rock solid and reliable, every hour and every day, without any exceptions. We could obviously build a server and host our site on it, but we would probably not want to pay for what it would take to make sure it was always on the web, no matter what. Of course that means day and night, holidays, weekends, every single day. Continue reading

How Much Money Do You Save with Automation?

So I have been looking into the costs of a home security system with the home automation features, which you have probably seen advertised on TV if you watch it all. Of course there are a lot of options for that. I was looking at this place called homesecuritytown.com and they are advertising something which they call a homeowner’s special. That gives you a home security system for 9 dollars a month. I assume that means the monitoring of the system costs you that much. I am not yet sure what they are going to charge you for the hardware that you need or the installation of it. However I do not think that gives you any of the home automation features that I am looking into right now. I have not really figured out what you have to to do to get those from ADT, but it seems like it is probably not that awesome of a deal from what I have seen so far. Continue reading
