When you talk about technology
in a technology field it is a difficult conversation since it
encompasses so many different aspects of the business.
Do we talk about how we have a
datacenter with full online battery backup and a standby backup
generator so we can run even when the entire city of Tampa is
blacked out? Do we talk about our routing technology or fiber
Probably not because most of
the major players have those as well.
We do have enterprise level
servers with redundant everything which most of our competitors
do not run, but nobody wants to hear about that either.
What we should talk about is
the decade of proprietary software we have created from server
redundancy to easy to use web tools. The thousands of programs
and tools that make up the pageBuzz.com website builder and
network management tools on the back end that we have created to
keep everything running smoothly.
While the bigger companies
hire hoards of employees to deploy servers, manage networks and
set up new accounts, we have created software to do all of those
If a server fails, a new
server is deployed and all the data from the websites hosted on
that servers are transferred from the main network storage to the
new server. The process takes between 15 and 30 minutes and is
fully automated. Of course this is only in the event of a
This is part of our ARTB
system or "Almost Real Time Backup" and was developed over many years when we were
unable to find any solution that would meet our needs.
During typically expected
failures such as hard drives, power supplies, switches and so on,
the system remains redundant so the websites never go offline. So
while we can't make hardware repairs with software, the software
can keep everything running until we can take the time to replace
the field parts.
When it comes to setting up
new accounts, adding DNS records to name servers or even
canceling service the system is fully automated, so we never have
to get involved unless something goes wrong which is very rare.
That leaves us full time to
work with customers and help them manage their websites.
But the truth is, we don't get
a lot of that either because our system is so streamlined and
easy to use, most people are able to do everything without our
So lets talk about that
technology. Other companies have site builders online, so what
makes ours so different?
Ours was built for our
customers and with our customers. When we would get too many
calls because people were confused, we changed the program so it
was not confusing. Created clear messages to steer them in the
right direction and tell them exactly what to do or we just make
the program do it for them.
Being small, we could not grow
is we were overwhelmed with support calls, so we built the
support into the programs. That makes it faster for the customer
and again, frees us up to do other things like developing new
So our system can pretty much
run itself 24-7 with no employees watching it or sitting around
watching cat videos on youtube in case there is a problem.
That makes it cheaper for us
to operate and saves you money on hosting while getting a better
Of course the icing on the
cake is our online CMS or "Content Management System"
which has grown over more than a decade of nonstop programming.
W have added, built and
tweaked day in and day out while our competitors have the same
stale software they did 10 years ago with no changes. We add programs regularly while they sit on what they have and just keep
telling their customers it is better than what the rest of us can
Well, we have news for them,
what they have is crap! The Internet has changes in 10 years, the
technology has changed and we have changed with it. Nobody wants
a website designed in 1995.
We have drag and drop and when
we say "Drag and Drop" we actually mean it.
Other companies let you drag
text into a box, maybe drag a picture into one or two designated
areas on the page. We let you drag anything into anyplace. We
have a drag and drop page editor, drag and drop image editors,
drag and drop business card and printable forms builder, drag and
drop menu builders and more.
When we say point and click we
are not talking about choosing one of 3 designs, we are talking
about, move this picture here, drag some text over there or even
drag them over the top of each other.
Our system is more flexible,
more robust and offers more in the way of design abilities than
all of our competitors.
Our website programs are
equally as impressive and extensive.
From a database driven
shopping and ecommerce system to used car dealer and realestate
galleries. Programs are managed like the professional companies,
through dynamic pages delivered in real time.
Other companies make you build
static pages that have to be manually edited, one by one every
time you make a change.
Our system is the same type of
system used by the big companies like walmart, amazon, ebay etc.
Backed databases that provide information in real time as it is
Those companies run millions
of pages, so when they need to make a change, the can't edit
millions of pages one by one. And even if you only have a hundred
pages, it is still a lot of work and prevents you from making
regular updates because of the time required. So your site
becomes stale and eventually disapears from the search engines.
Lets say you have a website
with 2000 products for sale and make a change to your shopping
cart, it changes on all 2000 pages at the same time. You don't
have to go in and edit each page like some of the other systems.
You don't have to hire a webmaster or spend the next month doing
it yourself, just a few clicks will change everything at once.
So when you want to offer a
discount or have a sale, just a click here and a click there and
you are done.
It is all about efficiency,
you time is valuable and just like we automate our network, we
automate your website so you can spend less time building and
more time selling.
And there are far less noticed
features such as the image uploading and thumbnail generation.
Our system resizes images to fit in pages and creates the smaller
images and links them to the bigger images. You just upload the
pic and the software does the rest.
On many hosts, you need to
create multiple sizes, upload them and the manually link the
pictures. It takes more time, it is difficult to understand and
will give most people a big headache if they don't quit first.
Of course, we were one of the
first companies in the "Do It Yourself" website market
so many of our ideas that we started with have been since used by
other companies as well. But they are playing catch up, because
we are still developing and adding new features on a regular
basis. Updating users interfaces and making it even easier to
We bring the same automation
to your website that we do to our own company and just like a
handful of people can run this huge hosting network, you can run
a website with thousands of products, countless sales and huge
profits and still have time left to enjoy.
We always believed that evey
business would need a website eventually and now that day has
come. We also believed that a website does not have to consume a
company or be a burden. It can be easy to build, manage and
create new business and manage sales with very little effort as
long as the right tools are available.
We think we have accomplished
that goal with pageBuzz.com and our customers seem to agree.
