Sleepless Media offers super reliable, affordable, custom web hosting services exclusively for our clients. We can host your site on one of our dedicated Rackspace server platforms in a shared Linux hosting environment with personalized Plesk™ control panels and in-depth statistics. We also offer separate profressional business email through our Rackspace Hosted Email service. Over 90% of our web design clients host their websites and email with us - they like to keep it all in one place, and would rather work with one of our helpful staff, than some no-name tech at a bargain-bin hosting company. Trust us, your site will be far safer and faster with us than it will be at the big hosting companies that stuff thousands of clients on one server, and only offer spotty tech support over email tickets. That's no fun.
We've been hosting some of the same clients for a decade, and we're constantly working with new hosting clients. These companies rely on their web hosting and email to run their businesses effectively on a daily basis. We take it very seriously because, well, it's a really serious aspect of every business in today's age.
A lot of companies just lump your email together with your web hosting on the web server, and call it a day. That means that if your website goes down, so does your email. Not only that, but if a customer totally unrelated to you on the server gets hacked and sends out a bunch of spam - you suffer through potential blacklisting and service interuptions. Sounds bad right? Well, it is. Why do they do it? Well, because they can offer it cheaper, but with how much we rely on email today to run our businesses, it's not worth saving a few bucks. That's something you can count on.
Here at Sleepless Media, we don't do that to you, and for good reason. We host all of our new email accounts totally separate from the web servers, on a service that is dedicated just to email, called Rackspace Hosted Email. It's better, faster, and more reliable. Since you won't have all your eggs in one basket, your email won't go down just cause there's something wrong with your website or server. Better webmail and spam filtering too! Want to sync up all of your computers and devices so the mail is mirrored via IMAP? No problem!

There are a lot of benefits to hosting with us when we're doing your web work, but we'd like to make sure that the solutions we recommend to you are a good fit for your specific needs, and there are some related services that we have recommendations for:
If you would like to register a domain name, we can help you with that, but we recommend using Namecheap.com because it's really easy and straight-forward.
If you are looking for an Internet Service Provider (ISP) that offers internet connection services (DSL, Cable, Etc.) in the Santa Cruz, CA area, we highly recommend Got.net. (It's what we use in our office, and they are literally next door to our office, just tell them we sent you!)
If you are looking for an IT consultant that can help you with everything from computer issues, to computer networking, to email, to phone systems, we recommend ITS. (They are who we use as well, just tell them we sent you!)
We'd recommend visiting the Web Hosting category of our blog where we go into even more detail about hosting your website and email.
