Our Location

We've been right here in the Belden Village area of Canton for over 20 years. If you'd like to see our in-house datacenter, give us a call or email, and we'll be happy to show you around.

Our Datacenter

This is no stock photo! We host hundreds of websites right here in our facility as well as co-located servers. Some are physical servers, although most have moved to our cloud infrastructure.

Website Development

Himebaugh Consulting is one of Canton's first website design and development companies, providing professional business websites and custom application development. We've been in business since 1993 doing website development - not many others have been around that long, if any.

What this means to you, the customer, is that you'll be putting your trust and investment into a company that has a local presence and is committed to the local community.

Another important difference between Himebaugh Consulting and other companies is that we've got our own datacenter to host your website or web application. It's not just a server in a closet, overburdened with hundreds of websites, all running slowly. In fact, ask us for a tour of our datacenter, and see where your website will be 'living' after it's developed.

No outsourcing here - we have a team of web developers experienced in many programming languages. The depth of experience and knowledge in a firm which develops websites is important - you won't be locked in to the 'specialty' that is the only skill a small shop may have.

To make an effective and fully functional business website, you need the right people behind it.

Custom Application Development

Himebaugh Consulting, Inc. offers custom application design and development for a range of platforms, architectures, technologies and devices. Often, the software that suits your specific needs simply isn't available in a package. When out-of-the-box software isn't sufficient or flexible enough for your business, we can custom-build to your specifications – efficiently – and deliver a solution that will save you time and money.

Why go custom?

  • Custom web applications work exactly the way you want them to. While off-the-shelf software can achieve partly what you want to do, the modification and customization of these tools is usually time-consuming and costly.
  • Custom web applications can be built around your existing systems, bridging the gap between the old and new, or between two systems that need to 'talk'.
  • Correctly coded applications are flexible and scalable.
  • Custom applications work well for intranets, inventory management, document management and workflow control.
  • Our custom web applications are built using open source technologies such as PHP and MySQL, which help you achieve better results at a reasonable cost.

Server Deployment and Maintenance

The heart of your business applications is your server. If anything goes wrong with a server, your business can slow down to a crawl or even stop completely. Clearly, it is important to have servers that are efficient and reliable. We specialize in setting up servers in configurations that optimize their performance and minimize the risk of failure. With options such as RAID, clustering, offsite redundancy, and load balancing, we can ensure that your servers run efficiently and securely.

Secure Remote Access (VPN)
