Everyone talks about the need to have a ‘brand’ for your business, but you might be wondering why having a brand is important in the first place. A brand, simply put, is who you and your business are. It’s the image that you want to project for your products and services. Being unclear about what your business is about will confuse your potential customers, and if they don’t know who you are and what your values and missions are they most likely will move on to some other business that is clear about who they are. Branding is about standing out from the crowd and showing your customers why your business is unique in its solutions to their problems.

All of the servers hosting our customer’s DNS, websites, FTP, Email, etc. are in storm hardened and secure data centers with large banks of batteries as well as generators and a guaranteed fuel supply. This means we do not expect the storm to impact those servers. It is possible that one or more Internet links to the data centers will go down, but they have many redundancies built in, which should ensure that our servers and our customers’ websites will be reachable throughout the storm and following the storm.
