Outward Image Design

Managed Hosting

Managed hosting encompasses all aspects of your website, from domain management, to the hosting server itself, backups, routine backend maintenance, and management of web security infrastructure. With managed hosting, everything is taken care of under one roof, with a manager dedicated to making sure your site is safe, secure, and well maintained.

And while most honest managed hosting plans will provide the fore mentioned services, a premium plan will also include content management, which is critical.

Outward Image provides affordable plans that do just that. And unlike most content management plans, we offer newsletter integration, design and production as part of our premium managed hosting packages. This turn your content management plan into an effective marketing tool, designed to be used on a consistent basis.
