Headache-Free Hosting Lowers Your Costs
Don't just look at monthly charges. Factor in your "headache" time. If your server crashes, you'll lose client inquiries and waste time. Reliable hosting is cost-effective.
Our Servers are Reliable
Many hosting services will try to impress you with 99% reliability, but that isn’t enough. Do the math. If your site is down 1% of the time, that equates to almost four days a year. Yikes. We deliver 99.99% reliability. Accept nothing less.
We Take Care of the Technical Details
Why worry about technical features such as PHP, MySQL, ASP, GB and more? We make your job easy.
When comparing web hosts, your law firm should look at the following information:
- How long have they been in business?
- How much are their hosting plans?
- Can you upgrade your plan seamlessly?
- How much storage do you get?
- What type of web traffic analysis programs are available?
- Do they support streaming media?
- Is there database support? What type?
- Can they support email accounts?
- What’s their bandwidth?
- Do they host warez, crackz, adult content?
- Is there a dedicated IP address?
- Is it shared hosting?
Hosting makes a difference. We have created a reliable, secure and fast network. Backed by our same-day support team, we keep your website running.
We believe that a reliable, supported network saves you costs over a year. You don't have to worry that your website will fail at the wrong moment.
However, if there ever is an issue, you don't have to wait for support. We are available 24/7/365. We have even answered client requests on Christmas Day!
Our hosting may cost more than a discount provider. However, when you factor in your time, effort and headaches from a down server, we are always the more cost-effective solution.
PaperStreet hosting comes with more than just the basic hosting that most vendors provide. We maintain the WordPress or Total Control backends we coded for you in addition to the hosting of the website. The hosting of the website/data covers 50% of our monthly costs, while the maintenance of the backend of the website covers the other 50%. The maintenance includes updating the core code that powers your website, the plugins, any security patches, etc. The most common way a WordPress website is hacked is through outdated software, so we ensure this does not happen. If there are any security issues, we fix them as part of your monthly hosting fees.
Our platform is one of the fastest available on the market and renders websites accordingly. The server comes with a CDN, hourly snapshots of FTP and DB and daily security scans as well as advanced caching. It has 99.99% uptime and is extremely fast. We take daily backups for 40 days, so if there are any errors on your website, we can quickly revert as needed -- this is part of the built-in disaster recovery on our server. The platform will scale as needed based on traffic and will not crash during traffic spikes. We have a lot of built-in security features such as DDOS mitigation, built-in threat detection via traffic inspection, plugin scans for nefarious activity, etc.
One of the greatest perks of our hosting is access to our team. We maintain your platform, so you never have to. Included with your hosting you receive unlimited training on your platform, a single point of contact, emergency after-hours support, etc. If you have any issues, simply call our team. With other hosting providers, it can be a very complicated process to get server issues resolved and considerable time investment for employees at the firm. At PaperStreet, you call our office or after-hours support and we are available to assist at all times.

We're There for You in an Emergency
- One of our clients called our emergency line at 2 a.m., panicked that his website was down. He had chosen to host his website with a different company, and that host had crashed. Although the problem was not ours to fix, we researched the issue immediately and advised him on how to contact his host, getting the site back up and running.
- One of our clients called in and told us that they had sent out a newsletter to a mailing list of about 500 people with the wrong URL written on it. We immediately wrote a redirect for it so that the URL in their newsletter worked.
We Provide Fast, Efficient Solutions
- A UK-based law firm needed to change its address everywhere on its website. This was immediately assigned and all changes were made that day.

The new page and form was created within 5 business days and launched the next week after some revisions.
