Your nonprofit’s marketing should tell a story. That story speaks to your donors and volunteers, encouraging them to support your mission. One of the best ways to communicate that brand story is through your organization’s website.
ArcStone specializes in website design and hosting for nonprofits. In fact, hosting the websites is what sets ArcStone apart from other design firms. Here are a few things to know about ArcStone’s hosting services.
The Value of Design-Hosting Integration
ArcStone hosts the vast majority of websites they design. In fact, 98 percent of the websites designed by ArcStone are hosted on its servers. This has created an environment where the design team knows the ins and outs of its own hosting services and can design code that’s optimized to work.
The result of this integration is that ArcStone’s sites work. You don’t have to worry about site problems due to incompatibility issues, but if something does go wrong, the team is able to quickly troubleshoot and fix it because of this insider knowledge.
Having your nonprofit website designed and hosted by ArcStone means your support doesn’t end once your project is complete. Your site launch is only the beginning. Since your site is actively hosted on ArcStone’s services, you’ll always have an open line of communication with the support team.
With an ArcStone-hosted site, you get a premium package that covers everything a nonprofit needs. You’ll get 10 email addresses with 10 GB of storage, as well as 4 GB of disk space for your website.
