Web Security Education

If you’re serious about doing business online, you need SSL. It’s the best way to protect user data and defend against identity theft. Many customers will refuse to do business with a Web Property that doesn’t have an SSL certificate. Displaying your SSL Site Seal tells customers they can shop with confidence, knowing they’re protected. Different certificates provide different levels of validation.

Who Are We? What is a Griot?

GriotSites™ was established in 2007 under the name Universal World Webs. The name change occurred in January of 2014 to accompany the sister book publishing company Griot Publishing House. The Griot Headquarters was birthed and still resides in beautiful Phoenix, AZ, known for its high plateau, low desert, rugged mountains, hidden canyons and riparian ecosystems AND sunshine all year around! We originally created GriotSites™ to give authors and artists the tools they need to display and sell their published books online. We believe that housing your own books and/or products on your own Web Property means more return on your investment as you grow your career online. We are now a full-service web hosting and web Design Company who has and continues to produce beautiful Web Properties for many start-up businesses and corporations. What is our secret to our success? Our Awesome Customer Service, Satisfied Clients, and our LOVE for what we do! T'Malkia Zuri, The creator of Griot International, LLC (an Author in her own right) entered the web hosting arena to provide web hosting services and websites to her Griot Publishing Clients. She was shocked to discover that there were few African-Americans who operated hosting companies, and even more startling; the numbers were smaller for women (across all races) who owned and operated web hosting companies. Although Ms. Zuri firmly believes that race, age, color or creed should be a non-factor in choosing a good web hosting company, she is aware that finding a black owned, dedicated web hosting company may be an important factor in choosing for some who are searching for these services and wish to support "Black Owned Businesses".
