About the Hosting Process

7. What are the steps involved in setting up my site with MCIS? or What platforms are supported by MCIS hosting?

MCIS provides hosting for Red Hat Enterprise Linux, CentOS, Ubuntu, and Microsoft Windows Server.

8. Will MCIS help me explore the latest technological solutions for my company?

Because of our partnerships with leading technology providers, we can provide test environments or beta software releases and assist with developing the business case analysis for multiple scenarios.

9. How big can we grow and remain with MCIS?

MCIS has partnered with Flexential|ViaWest to provide virtually unlimited growth capabilities for power, and connectivity to the Internet in a managed collocation environment with long term battery backup at multiple sites.

10. Who will own the software if I host my software application with MCIS?

For licensed software, customers are required to maintain the appropriate license agreements with the respective vendors. For internally developed software, customers retain all rights of license and ownership. For database driven applications, customers “own” their data.

11. Who will be responsible for the updates on my applications with MCIS?

Your MCIS team of professionals understands that you are in business to do business, not to spend valuable production or sales time working and worrying about your web site and data. We are happy to work with you to install all updates and upgrades at the time most convenient for your organization.

12. How much control will I have over my own site updating and rebooting?

Your MCIS website will remain YOUR website. While some of these tasks must be relegated to the host provider, due to the technical aspects of the hosting process, others can sometimes be handled in-house by your own qualified dedicated IT support staff. The answer to this question is dependent upon your specific resources, your software application and the type of updates needed. Contact MCIS to learn how you can get what just you need. The peace of mind is free.

13. Has my company surpassed the traditional “boxed” self-administered hosting solution?

The answer to this is simple. Your “boxed” solution or self administered hosting processes are not working effectively for you, if…

  • Your organization is investing valuable production, sales, and development time working on or worrying about your website process.
  • You are spending an excessive amount of time worrying about how your site is working instead of concentrating on how to increase its effectiveness.
  • You are planning for continued company growth and are already having challenges with your current processes now and you are concerned your current process will not support your impending growth and expansion.
  • You are having to (or have previously had to) negotiate client issues because of challenges with your current website process. Maintaining or growing even one client’s business could more than pay for the improvements for your organization.

14. What type of service can I expect with challenges with my site?

Our goal is to provide you with the best service you have EVER received from ANY IT support organization. Your online success is essential to own success and growth so we take a vested interest in the processes, successes and challenges of our clients. We’re here for you,no matter what day of the week or time of the day.

One of the most important things that set us apart in website and SaaS Hosting, is that we not only experts in hosting and IT support, but in the most essential business processes as well. Having a secure, fully functioning website is not an option in today’s rapid-paced world economy; it is an absolute necessity, and no organization understands this better than MCIS.

If you have specific concerns about your site, take a minute and give us a call. We’re happy to tell you exactly why our hosting clients love us and why your organization will too.
