Affordable and Reliable IT Support
Many organisations are focused on delivering a product or a feature to their customers and after-sale support can often be an afterthought or a function provided by whoever is available in the business to take a client call or help them with an issue.
In today’s market where businesses are judged (sometimes harshly) on how they provide support to customers at any stage in the journey, it’s important to ensure that support is delivered effectively. Many businesses acknowledge that this is important but a lot of these businesses simply can’t afford to hire the staff needed to do this properly.
This is where the BaseHost Support as a Service comes in. Our service provides a truly white-labeled and outsourced support model that doesn’t break the bank and does provide effective support to any business.
Agile, flexible and fast means more bang for your buck
Let’s drill down into the “Elastic” part of the EC2 abbreviation. As you’ve probably guessed, its about the technology’s ability to expand and contract resources as you need them. This means paying for only what you use, and saving money while you do it. As your business grows, using EC2 means you can add on more instances (computing capability) to increase capacity in just minutes, rather than weeks or months with a physical server setup.

Frequently asked questions
How does this differ to the other hosting services offered by BaseHost?
Traditional hosting offers a lot less flexibility than cloud hosting as it relies on physical servers in data centres, and is often limited on space or capacity, while being charged at a fixed weekly or monthly cost. Amazon EC2 infrastructure is highly flexible, offering excellent scalability and charging users only for the resources they actually use, allowing for normal peaks and dips in website traffic.
How elastic is it? How fast can I really adjust my capacity?
It takes literally minutes for you to adjust your server capacity up or down via the web interface control panel. No need to waste time and money paying for capacity you’re not utilizing!
