Web Site Hosting
Business and Personal Sites
Erik Weems' business hosting service: Servers are at a secure class-5 category location, power-grid prioritized with hospitals.
I provide Monthly, Quarterly and Annual hosting plans.
Hosting related services and policies:
Hosting for your existing custom site, or design and building of a new site is available. Custom "from scratch" sites are developed using a testing process to allow the client to view and approve each stage of the build.
Hosting comes with free Word Press installation of latest version. I provide access, without charge, to my library of licensed professional Word Press themes for as long as you host on my servers.
Subscriber Service for Word Press updates
The fee is $28 per update occurrence*, according to the official release of a new WP update by the Word Press organization. Update includes theme and plugin updates. Service includes offine archiving of each previous version of your Word Press site (this archiving is helpful if you later decide to revert to an earier version).
I cannot guarantee theme or plugin compatibility with new versions of Word Press, that is the responisbility of the designer of that theme or plugin. If your theme was developed using a "child theme" to hold customized alterations, the customizations are typically carried forward through each theme upgrade.**
* Price subject to change without notice.
** Themes that have been "hacked" to include custimizations are not guaranteed to work with theme upgrades. In such a case, we make a theme upgrade in a testing location so that you can compare the upgrade with the last version so that you can make an informed decision to go forward or not.
My servers utilize a quad-core based Linux operating system with automated daily, weekly and monthly backup restoration. Offline archival record service available. Besides the built-in Apache security with Cpanel, added security is provided by ConfigServer for 24/7 exploit scanning and Firewall maintenance. Extended email filtering and security is available through AppRiver.
Servers are maintained at a secure Class-5 Category location and are power-grid prioritized with a local hospital. Facility includes on-site power generators secured with lock and gate access only. Facility is secured with badge and keypin entrance with all on-site employees and visitors photographed. Actual datacenter floor access is by biometric scanner coupled with body temperature activation. Servers are secured into private cages. Man-trap security is maintained through each access point, entering and exiting.
Standard SSL encryption certificates SSLv2, SSLv3 can be used, also TLS 1.2 (though current SSL standards are encouraged and deprecated versions, such as SSLv2, are discouraged.)
The WHM - Cpanel server control panels are provided. There are over a hundred pre-installed apps available through the cpanel interface.
Archiving, Maintenance and Repair
All web hosting includes daily, weekly and monthly backup and site restoration service.
An add-on service of offline archiving on a monthly basis is available.
Depending upon your site size, you can have as many email accounts you desire, for example firstname.lastname@example.org
