Managed Internet Presence

You can drive a car, but do you care about how it works?  You have more important things to do.  You may know how to change the oil or, even, a tire, but you expect it to take you where you want to go with a minimum of fuss.  By the same token, your company has more important things to do than worry about email traffic and what it takes to keep the website up and running.  Nexigen understands that.  When you let Nexigen manage your online presence including email hosting, website hosting, domain name management, and DNS services, you can take care of your business and clients while we take care of you.

Managed Domain Registration

A domain name, or Web address, is the name people use to find you on the Internet.  A domain name is important because it says something about your company.  It is easy for a client to remember mycompany.com .  It would be very difficult for anyone to remember the numbers associated with every domain.

  • Find and register new domains
  • Transfer domains from other companies
  • Maintain (make changes) and renew domain names
  • Domain locking prevents unauthorized transfers or hijacking

You want to be found by the right people. Unfortunately, there’s no way to determine that up front – until now. Privacy Protect does just that. When visitors try to find you via Whois, your identity is not revealed. Instead, alternate contact information is provided as well as access through a contact form. That gives you the best of both worlds – legitimate potential clients can get in touch with you without placing your company at risk.

DNS Services

DNS is what translates domain names meaningful to humans into the numerical identifiers associated with networking equipment for the purpose of locating and addressing these devices worldwide. DNS points web traffic to the web server and email traffic to the mail server.

Selecting the right company to host your DNS service is critical because an outage can take down the website, email and everything else associated with the domain. An often-used analogy to explain the Domain Name System is that it serves as the phone book for the Internet by translating human-friendly computer hostnames into IP addresses.

We provide 24×7 monitoring for up-time and resolution times (how fast they are resolving your addresses). Because we have geographically dispersed DNS servers, our DNS will not fail even if an entire datacenter goes down.

Managed Web Site Hosting

Scalability is a word that is thrown around but not always understood.  In this case, what you don’t know can hurt you – a lot.  For the purposes of your business web site, it means it will be able to handle all the visitors who are interested in your product or service.  If you’re launching a new product, and it is immensely popular, the last thing you want is for your website to go down.  That is why you need true “business class” hosting, so you can be sure it will always be available and secure.  Our 70 Gigabit per Second of bandwidth to the Internet contributes to the uncompromised availability of your website.

A building is only as strong as its foundation.  Generic servers may save money, but they can’t provide the kind of reliability a business needs.  In order to make sure your website is always up and running, we have invested in Dell PowerEdge servers.  We offer a choice of either Windows or Linux Web servers.  Each has its strengths, and the right choice depends on a number of factors.  Once we understand your goals, we can make an appropriate recommendation.

Security is of paramount importance.  In order to provide the kind of security required to conduct business, we offer a number of security features including:

  • Hardened security
  • 24×7 monitoring
  • Firewalls
  • Intrusion detection
  • Brute force detection

If you haven’t experienced significant loss of data because you forgot to do proper backups or didn’t have a strong policy in place, you know the pain of having to retrieve lost information.  That is why we guarantee the nightly backup of data.  Never again will you face the frustration of knowing you have no one to blame but yourself for overlooking a backup.  In other words, we’ve got your back.

PCI & HIPAA compliant hosting solutions are available for those businesses that require either or both of them.  You don’t have to concern yourself with the details of these strict requirements.  We have done the work for you, and we will provide the support you require.

Email Hosting

Email is great.  In a few minutes, people can accomplish what used to take weeks by snail mail.  However, email won’t do very much good if it isn’t set up properly, easy to use, and full-featured.  While we can provide basic email hosting using POP3/IMAP boxes, experience shows that Microsoft Exchange, Google Apps, and Office Live offer valuable features worth looking at.  We will explain the details of each email service, so you can decide which you prefer.
