AltaStreet Hosting Prices Explained

One of the most common questions we get asked by prospective clients is regarding our monthly hosting fees.  The question often goes something like,

“My domain registrar (Godaddy, Network Solutions, etc…) offers website hosting for $10/month, why is your hosting so much more expensive?” 

It’s a valid question, and deserves an in-depth answer, which I will do my best to give here.  But to summarize in one word, it all comes down to service. While other companies offer a discounted rate for web hosting, AltaStreet offers comprehensive support for the hosting AND maintenance of your website.

To illustrate the difference in services offered, here is a comparison of services between a standard hosting company and AltaStreet.
