Our data center keeps your website available every day, 24/7. Your hosting fee pays for equipment, power, cooling, maintenance and security. This video illustrates the sort of equipment that we use to keep your website online.
We use world class data centers in Dallas-Texas, Houston-Texas and Provo-Utah. These data centers contain racks of computers, in air conditioned rooms, that serve out web pages to users across the world, on demand, 24/7. They cost money to build, use energy, have operations staff, emergency power back-ups, fire security and they are guarded. Your monthly hosting fee contributes to these costs.

On 7th November 2018 we achieved our goal of producing our millionth web page. This was achieved using a computer program to dynamically generate unique web pages sequentially. Initially, we ran experiments to generate fifty pages at high speed. After the success of these initial experiments, we ran an experiment to generate a million web pages, starting with page one at 10:38:07pm on 2018/11/06.
Finally, 24 hours, 38 minutes and 32 seconds later we generated our millionth web page at 11:16:39pm on 2018/11/07!

The first thing to do is to start writing down what you want to say on each of your web pages. Often, people say that they would like their own website but then can't think of anything to say! If you have a message that is going to be of interest to other people, then you need to think about what that message is, and start writing it down in a structured way.
