Hosting

Our hosting business is built on a rock-solid foundation where we manage every aspect of the operation. There are no control panels or simplistic interfaces – we hand-build all servers based on your needs to provide speed, performance and stability.

All of our servers are custom-built. Our base standard server model starts with a 2.5Ghz processor, 4 GB of RAM and a 30 GB SSD hard drive. These server specs can be changed depending on several factors: traffic demand, application/services needs and storage needs. Processors and RAM can be added or removed as warranted; hard drive space can only be increased.

Core Technologies

All servers operating system is CentOS Linux 7, an enterprise-level operating system based on Red Hat Enterprise 7.

nginx

Powerful and lean web server built for performance and speed.

PHP

Standalone* version of PHP built for speed and performance.

MariaDB

Drop-in replacement for MySQL, offers better clustering, stability and security.

Varnish

Caching system which sits in front of nginx to offer increased performance.

All Servers Include

Free LetsEncrypt SSL

All servers come with LetsEncrypt SSL as an option.

PHP 7

We fully support PHP 7. PHP 5.6 is also available.

Backups

Nightly backups of all files and databases. 3-2-1 backups also available.

Piwik

The analytics tool everybody is falling in love with!

Security

Our standard servers are also built with the following:

No passwords: Users requiring direct access to the server must use a shared key to log in.

Automatic IP address banning: After 5 failed attempts at guessing the password (which is impossible) malicious visitors are blocked from accessing the server. This prevents attackers from being able to attempt other methods of accessing the server.

Server file-level audits: Detects if any changes are made to server-level files such as configuration files and programs.

Nightly malware scans: Malware definitions are updated nightly and our scans alert if us any questionable files appear on the server.

Rootkit detection: Additional scans are performed to detect rootkits – programs which embed themselves deep within servers and are difficult to remove.

Domain, SSL and Resource Management

When the intern leaves or Brad joins Todd's startup you don't want to be scurrying around trying to find the logins to your domain registrars or try to resurrect Brad's e-mail account to reset the password. (Yes, this has happened. Many times.) Let us take care of all of your digital asset management.

Domain name registration: Starting at $50 per domain per year, renews each year until you tell us to stop.

Premium DNS: Our DNS hosting reflects changes within 5-10 minutes where most registrars’ free DNS hosting changes can take 24 to 72 hours. Starting at $5 per domain name.

SSL Certificates: Free LetsEncrypt certificates on every server. Commercial SSLs start at $50 per year. Highest level SSL (green bar) with warranty protection starts at $1500 annually. All SSLs automatically renew.

Enterprise Backups: Starting at $100 per month, 100 GB of backup space and live, on-the-fly “hot” MySQL database backups.

Hosting Plans

All hosting plans are hands-on managed and built to fit your needs. Because all of our plans are custom-build the pricing varies depending on your needs. The pricing table below is meant to give you an idea of our pricing. However, your needs may differ.

And don't worry - if you select a plan you won't be charged for it immediately! We will craft the plan to your specific needs!
