To Serve and Protect
All Bridgelin modules are only available on the Bridgelin servers so we can ensure optimal performance and reliability of the servers and the software (this arrangement is also known as software as a service or SaaS). Your Hosting and Maintenance includes management of your primary domain name and the setup and maintenance of all your email accounts.
How It Works
The Bridgelin Platform is a fully supported, hosted service which means we take care of all your online requirements. Your hosting, email and domains can be some of the most troublesome aspects of your online presence if not handled properly and we work hard to ensure you are well served.
It starts with your domain name. We help you select it and register it. If you already have a domain we work with you to ensure it will be pointed in the right direction when it's time for your new Bridgelin website to go live. We don't have to be your registrar but you will find it more convenient if we are.
Next comes your email accounts. Your new site requires a number of standard emails to be setup, such as confirmation and notification emails. We take care of those right from the start. Then there are the email addresses for you and your staff which we set up in the best way for your requirements, either as forwarded or stand-alone accounts. Once again you can manage this type of thing your self or through your existing providers if you prefer.
As noted above, the nature of the Bridgelin Platform requires that it be hosted on our servers. They are state of the art, located in one of Canada's premier data centres with every measure taken to ensure optimum up time, including hardening against hack attacks. Backups are performed daily should there ever be the need for a full restore.
You should also know that as PayPal is the default payment mechanism for the Bridgelin Platform, we will help you set up a PayPal account if you don't already have one. If you prefer another payment mechanism put us in touch with their tech people and we will let you know what will be involved to integrate with their service – it should be straightforward as we have already taken this scenario into account when we designed the system.
