What is SilverType™?

Today every business - large or small - needs a website in order to be seen as a professional operation. But not everyone has the time or inclination to learn the complexities of web development. In fact, you probably shouldn't - better to spend your energies on your core skills. You are a creative professional, not a geek.

Your web hosting company needs to provide a professionally managed web server that's available 24/7. Chances are you had a designer or web developer set up a hosting account for you; the hosting charges just appear on your monthly credit card bill and you think no more about it. You're probably paying too much, and getting very little support or advice on how to use this to help your business. Most "consumer" web hosting caters to the lowest common denominator, emphasizing price over quality.

 

About Us

Wearing many hats

SilverType was formed to address a perceived need for a hosting company that could provide the kind of services required by creative professionals who generally operate as sole proprietors. If you are one of these people, you'll know that you're required to wear a number of hats - artist, businessperson, sales, technician, gopher, and increasingly technology expert. Some people take to the technology side of the business and enjoy searching out deals, configuring websites, and uploading data. Others would prefer to spend their limited time on more creative endeavours, or in marketing their services.

Service Tailored To Your Needs

Choosing a website hosting partner can be a complex task; you need to consider not just cost, but also server platform, features, connection speeds, backup, reliability, support - and that's all before you ever get to upload your web pages. If you'd rather spend your time doing what you do best, then SilverType can offer you a service tailored to the unique needs of the creative professional. We'll take care of all the aspects of setting up and running your website, leaving you free to concentrate on your own strengths.
