Running a business can be immensely rewarding.
But it can also be immensely exhausing, especially in an industry like Web Hosting or Digital Marketing.
Customers would call you right in the middle of a family dinner, or servers would go down while you are travelling to some place.
There’s always a time in each web host’s life, when they decide, “Enough is enough. I must get someone to take care of all this.”
It’s a classic tale of the Reigning Champion vs the New Comer.

Owning a server is much like owning a car.
You don’t have to be an automobile engineer to ride around in a car. It’ll take you places. You just need to fill in gas, check air pressure, and occasionally get it serviced.
In the same way, you don’t have to be a server expert to own (or rent) one and run your business apps in it.
But many server owners forget to get it routinely serviced. They pay their bills and assume all will be well.
Customers are undoubtedly the biggest assets of an organization. We often hear that ensuring customer delight is the ultimate goal which can lead to business success. But what, exactly does customer delight mean?
Customer delight is not about making them say a “Thanks”. It’s about creating a “wow” factor to the customer, with your service. With the help of an excellent white label help desk support, you can make it a part of your company culture.
A decade back, 24/7 hosting support was considered a premium service offered by large web hosts. Not anymore. Now almost everyone seems to offer 24/7 hosting support. How can you stand out from the crowd?
