Web hosting companies: How switching made the difference for DSC

Fast, reliable, always on

Named as one of the top Communication Institutes by India Today Aspire in June 2017, The Delhi School of Communication (DSC) offers a 360-degree Communications and Public Relations program. The New Delhi school’s 600+ alumni and 23-year-old legacy are a testament of its contribution to the growth of many professionals and the communication industry at large. But what does DSC’s success have to do with web hosting companies?

The demand for communications professionals has always been on a high-growth trajectory.

Today, that demand is rapidly expanding across occupations, driven by the decentralization of traditional communications roles and the continuing adoption of data analytics, social media and mobile technologies.

The desire to cater to the increasing demand brought together a group of industry professionals and academicians in 1995. Feeling a need to better align higher education in India with industry demands, they started The Delhi School of Communication. Their vision is to grow DSC into a hub of thought, engagement and futuristic learning in the media and communication domain.

An institutional website is a must

The math is fairly simple! To increase enrollments, an educational institute needs to build brand awareness, which is well-served by having a website.

“A website is a basic without which I do not think my work would be able to function,” says Ramola Kumar, Dean of DSC. “A website lets the world know about your service in an extremely cost-effective way, compared with print, broadcast or any other avenue of promotion,” she adds.

DSC revamped its old website in 2009. The new one positions it to move into the future, conveying a deep understanding of communication trends and industry needs.

With a new website came a new service provider for hosting services. GoDaddy was highly recommended — both for its reputation as the world’s largest domain registrar and its attractive pricing options.

Now DSC can be easily found on the Internet, providing information to anyone who wishes to learn more. Their new website has also helped to establish the institute as a thought leader in Media Communications.

“We moved our hosting to GoDaddy, as the previous service provider could not process our workload effectively. Now with GoDaddy we are at ease that our website is secure and running always,” says Ramola.

A trusted digital partner with 24/7 support

The process of hosting with GoDaddy was seamless for DSC. By visiting in.GoDaddy.com, they could purchase and set up a hosting package at lightning speed and be visible to the world in a click.

GoDaddy’s 99.9 percent uptime guarantee and award-winning 24/7 tech support ensures that DSC’s website never rests.

The WordPress Website builder tool helped DSC build their website quickly and professionally along with security from any outside threats.

The team that maintains the website at DSC has interacted with GoDaddy’s customer service team several times. Their experience has been “excellent” regardless of the challenge being faced, be it a hosting issue or a simple one of renewal.

Superior among web hosting companies

Ramola is full of praise for GoDaddy for having managed the school’s website for nearly 10 years now. “They consistently perform well,” she says. This long-term outlook has been key to DSC’s consistent growth and success.

Great business are not built in a day, but they are built to last, is her personal and winning philosophy. This philosophy helps to determine the web hosting companies The Delhi School of Communication allies with.
