Hosting your site with another host provider

If you have arranged your own hosting, or wish to do so, you need to ensure that the server is compatible with Joomla, and sufficiently secure so that your site is not an easy target for hackers.

BrilliantWeb will still take care of the installation and configuration of the web site.
We will also continue to assist with Joomla support, content editing etc.
There are however, cost and service level implications.
