About our company
Since 2003, Global Access has partnered with businesses large and small across the globe to ensure their presence on the Internet. Along the way, we have earned a solid reputation for superior customer service, reliability, security and providing results-oriented Web hosting solutions.
Many companies offer Web hosting solutions, but few have the credentials, infrastructure and technical expertise to efficiently deliver a reliable system to their clients. Larger companies lack personalization and customer-oriented service. They not only make it difficult to contact them, but once customers do get through, they are passed to a different individual each time they call. To the large companies, their clients are merely numbers.
Global Access is not a large Web hosting provider; and frankly, we don’t want to be. We prefer to offer superior service to a specific market niche. That niche consists of results-oriented businesses that prefer to be hosted on shared servers of only tens, rather than thousands, of other hosted Websites.
In addition to the personalized service we offer our customers, we also have an impressive record of uninterrupted service. We almost never have outages and if we ever do, our customers can reach us quickly and easily to find out why and when they’ll be back up and running.
Why Choose Us ?
With thousands of companies providing Website hosting services, why choose Global Access? For the same reasons you would choose a family style restaurant over a fast-food outlet. Fast-food outlets offer one-size-fits-all meals and treat you as a number. At Global Access, we are on a first name basis with most of our clients and cater to their individual wants and needs. We see ourselves as a “home-cooked meal” hosting provider and that’s why we don’t have set hosting plans. Global Access customers never pay for services they don’t need. They simply tell us what they want and we prepare an “à la carte” hosting plan that meets their individual needs, with no additional charges.

What is a Web Hosting Service?
“Web Hosting”, also known as “Website hosting” or simply “hosting”, is the Internet service that allows individuals or companies to make their Website accessible on the World Wide Web and visible to search engines such as Google and Yahoo. Web hosting companies provide the facility and infrastructure that allow organizations to securely host their Websites online.
Every Website on the Internet is being hosted somewhere. The hosting entity makes use of “servers” or “Web servers”, which are machines that store files for one or more Websites, but also makes it possible for other servers on the Internet to find the Websites on the server. These servers can be dedicated, co-located, virtual private, exchange, cloud, clustered or shared.
The servers that host Website files are powerful, redundant, secure, and use software that allows users to manage their hosting account, view statistics, create emails, and simply to manage the Websites, by accessing these files via FTP (File Transfer Protocol) applications. These servers are usually located in state-of-the-art server room facilities that provide uninterrupted power supplies, security and monitoring services. The Web servers located in such facilities are connected to high-speed fibre optics with close to 100% up time. Server room facilities need to have a redundant and high capacity connection to the Internet. This is much different from the high speed Internet connection in your home or place of business.
To tie this all together, every Website has a unique address, which is called a “domain name” or “domain”, such as www.yourdomainnamegoeshere.com. These domains are available with various extensions, such as .org, .net, .ca or .info. Also, domain names have what is referred to as Dynamic Name Servers, or DNS, which point to the address of the actual and physical Web servers. The Web address is in a form of IP address, something like 55.555.55.555.
Global Access is a professional Website Hosting Provider that offers all of the above, as well as different platforms for hosting, allowing you to choose from Windows Hosting or Linux-based Web Hosting. We also offer co-location, dedicated, clustered, cloud, exchange and virtual private servers [VPS].
