While other South Florida advertising agencies may offer to build a website for your business most will refer you out to some third party hosting provider. If anything goes wrong then you are on your own. One of the things that makes our South Florida ad agency different from other agencies is that we accept responsibility for your website long after the day it is launched. When your website is hosted with us we guarantee it will work and if anything goes wrong we will fix it at our expense. This includes and is not limited to websites being hacked, functions that stop working due to server updates and anything else that may go wrong. We run our own virtual/cloud servers at Host.net in Boca Raton. Host.net’s Boca Raton and Fort Lauderdale facilities each have multiple subterranean, geographically diverse fiber entry points with four 4” conduits, 12 inner ducts and multiple fiber carriers including Host.net/BroadbandONE, AT&T, FiberLight, FPL FiberNet, Hotwire, Level(3), Paetec and Qwest. We have spared no expense to bring the most stability to our network, from our location, to our IP carriers; everything we do is with total customer satisfaction in mind.
The Ad Excellence cloud website hosting servers are in Boca Raton at 3500 NW Boca Raton Blvd, in the 900 building. Since we began running our servers at this location we have had zero down time. Our client’s websites have remained live during the worst part of every hurricane to ever hit South Florida.
Here are some key points about the unique advantages to hosting your website with our ad agency.

We now run Cloud Hosting for enhanced reliability. The way the cloud works is that the websites are hosted on an array of web servers so that if one piece of hardware failed there are many other servers that would just take over. With this type of website hosting our clients don’t have any down time.
