There is no denying that ever since the beginning of mankind, we are visual learners. From the caveman drawings to the infographics of current day, we are better at learning and understanding how things work when there is a visual representation of the subject matter. As such, at Like Rock we offer high quality videos that allow users to gain a better understanding of how to use the different aspects of the control panel. You can learn about anything from adding features to your site or just changing the appearance of your control panel. Stay tuned as we highlight a new video every so often.
Most of us have probably come across the "bundle everything and save" campaigns and though there are some that truly do make sense to do, sometimes the convenience of one bill is not worth the lack of service or features that bundled packages come with. We often find clients that have their hosting with their long distance company who get extremely few features on their hosting accounts for the convenience of one bill that it makes us cringe on what the big companies are getting away with. In today's hosting community a simple hosting plan should not cost more than a few dollars a month. Though a lot of companies will tie you down with a long-term contract (don't get us started on that!), the cost of getting hosting through a company that focus primarily on serving your website is almost always more affordable than what you can get when combining the service with your long distance or Internet service company. It's also important to note that a dedicated hosting company is going to do everything they can to ensure that you get great hosting service, that's not always the case with companies where the focus is not your online presence. So check your bills and compare how you can save by splitting up your service instead of combining them.
If you are paying more then a few dollars for hosting, try Like Rock out. You won't be disappointed.
Often when we talk to potential clients about what kind of hosting plan would work for them, we always suggest that they start with a basic package (Stone) before upgrading to the unlimited everything package (Rock). Though this might seem "bad for business", we're not in the business of making a quick buck by taking advantage of our customers. A lot of the clients that choose Like Rock for their hosting needs have been with the company (in one form or another) for several years. We pride ourselves in putting you, the customer, at the forefront of our decision making process. Its also the reason we offer our competitive prices without the catch of having a contract. Above all our flexibility in working with each one of our clients gives the personal touch that you just won't get at other companies. That's why we recommend, start small and grow. It'll help you save money and hopefully we'll gain another loyal customer to the Like Rock family!
We believe that if we provide good service our customers will not feel a need to move to another hosting provider. This gives our customers the freedom to choose who hosts their website and also who manages their site. Many other hosting providers give a discounted price to new customers as long as they sign up for 1, 2 or even up to 3 years! Like Rock has customers that have been with us for over 8 years without any form of a contract that ties them to Like Rock or any penalties for moving to another provider.
We are not happy, if you're not happy. We like to spoil our customers by providing services that go above and beyond what any hosting provider gives because we truly love what we do. We live and breath websites and helping keeping quality websites up and running is what drives us to stay in business! If you are considering a new hosting provider, why not give us a try? Sign up now and see what it feels like to be taken care of for a change.
There are several web applications like Joomla, WordPress, Drupal, etc. that require you to know what version of PHP is installed or available by your hosting provider. If you've ever wondered how to find out, here is a quick tip on getting the info you need:
- Create a new file with a .php extension. Eg. phpinfo.php
- Next place the following in the file:
1 2 3
<?php phpinfo(); ?>
- Upload the file to you the document root directory, usually called www or public_html
- Pull up your page in the browser. Eg. http://www.yourdomain.com/phpinfo.php
- You should see a lot of relevant information about what version of PHP is installed along with which extensions, etc.
That's it! If you have any questions or problems, let us know, we'll try to be as helpful as possible.
