Web Hosting for Nonprofits

The people at FatLab have been doing web hosting for nonprofits for decades. We have a team of experienced consultants, builders, and hosts who have worked with nonprofits for many years.

Our employees have a deep understanding of nonprofit organizations and can help you with every aspect of your website.

From our experience, we have a unique understanding of how nonprofits function, how they work, and what the performance expectations are.

We have worked for national trade associations, and issues-based groups and have worked on sites that focus on member communications, trade shows/events, advocacy donors, and so much more.

Enterprise Hosting

We boast of incredible uptime and performance levels. Utilizing high-performance servers in several geographic areas. We maintain low server loads for performance and offer dedicated environments.

Firewalls & Backups

We provide a complete security solution from a real-time web application firewall to regular website updates and up to 90 days of offsite redundant backups.

High Performance

We provide and configure the latest and best practice methods for website speed and performance. From the server to on-the-fly content optimizations and content delivery networks.

24/7/365 Monitoring

We don’t just monitor our servers, but we monitor the uptime and performance of your particular website with alerts directly to our various teams no matter the time.

Website Software Updates

Keeping up to date with your website software patches is important to the security and longevity of your website. We take care of this for you with weekly website software updates.

Hosting and Website Support

What makes us unique is that we not only support the hosting environment, but we can also support your specific website.

What Makes Our Web Hosting Service the Best Host for Nonprofits?

Your site might be a nonprofit site and that might just be a website, right? Well, that is what the big hosting companies like GoDaddy and WP Engine are going to treat it as. These larger companies are going to lump your site into all the rest, the e-commerce sites, the blogs, news sites… whatever, right?

This is where our company differs.

We are experienced nonprofit professionals. Members of our executive team have been employees with mid-sized and large nonprofits. We have managed membership sites, worked with due-paying members, on issues-based initiatives, and donation campaigns, and have been involved with large trade shows.

Other WordPress hosting companies might view your site as just another WordPress site, but to us, it’s much more than that. It’s about your members, constituents, donors, and special audiences.

Sure we understand the technical aspects of the content management system, but more importantly, we understand the content, the goals, and the audiences.

Let’s Talk About Hosting Resources

FatLab, is first and foremost a web support company. We provide hosting services to aid our clients in achieving the best uptime, performance and reliability possible.

We host websites because it is in our advantage to control the full hosting environment. Controlling the entire environment for a website allows us to make decisions on a client by client basis.

No Mention of Gigabytes, Megabytes, Bandwidth, Network, Hard Drive Space, CPU or RAM

You will notice that nowhere in our site do we mention having different hosting plans with different amounts of resources.

We recognize many of our clients don’t know how much RAM they need or how powerful a CPU is needed. We also recognize that just because a site can run in a certain enviroment, that does not mean it is optimized for that website’s traffic patterns, content and media.

We Do Servers a Bit Different

We approach things a little bit different and don’t charge by the CPU, RAM, hard drive size or network usage. We simply provide the resources that are needed for any particular client and website.

If a website needs more resources we add more resources, no extra charge or change in plans.

We Know How to Deal with Traffic Spikes

We are very used to working with clients who have busy times of year or may experience fluctuations in traffic levels. We can help plan for such events or quickly adjust if anything catches us off guard.

We manage servers in several geographic locations around the world. We will pick a datacenter closet to your audience or what we feel is best for your particular site. Our CDN services will deliver your static content all around the globe for quick delivery which will aid in search engine performance.

Your Hosting Environment will be Built Just For You

The short story here is that we are not about selling a limited number of hosting plans and then sticking your nonprofit organization into one of them. We will tailor your hosting environment to your specific needs.
