What Hosting Plan for Me?

We offer a range of different hosting plans, as do other hosting companies. We try to be straightforward about what our plans offer, and don't promise you "unlimited" everything. Why? Because most companies promise you unlimited, and it is unlimited until you use more resources than they can afford to provide. The dirty secret of the hosting industry is that any time a provider says unlimited, they never mean it.

In that light, we offer several stock hosting plans. Our Garden Plot plan is a small plan, with limited resources.  It is intended to be used for static sites, and Drupal and Wordpress sites with minimal requirements, particularly with minimal requirements for memory, as we only allow you 64MB of PHP at a maximum.

Most Drupal and Wordpress sites will be more comfortable in our Half-Acre plan - this allows you considerably more RAM, and more control over your account.  You get your own php.ini file, which you can edit (either from your Virtualmin control panel, or by using ssh to go right on the server and edit the file yourself.  There is a separate php.ini file for each version of PHP. You can select PHP versions in your control panel, either by domain, or even by directory. 

If you are really pumping out pages, you should be looking at a VPS plan. The VPS is not necessarily faster than the shared plans, but they are more flexible and you have complete control over the server.  You also have a guarantee of performance for your own server, and can handle a much higher number of page requests.  You can install software packages yourself on the server, and make any configuration changes you need.  VPS systesm include root access to the server and can reboot it if you wish. On all of our shared and VPS instances we provide operating system upgrades as part of the service. 

Beyond that we are unusual in that we will happily design and buld a custom environment for you.  Need redundant databases ? we can do that. Need multiple web servers? We can do that too.Need Varnish, or Memcache?  It's available. We also can provide consulting on performance issues for Drupal and help you to tune your server to get the most out of it. 

In other words, if you are looking for reliable, performant, and flexible CMS hosting, you're in the right place. 

Hosting Plans

VPS - 4 gig

This is a larger VPS system suitable for a CMS-based site that handles more traffic or needs more capability. You get your own VPS with 4 Gbyte of dedicated memory, root access, and 60 Gbytes of storage.  Beyond those limits it's yours to do anything you want. Free optimized Cloudflare available.

VPS - 2 gig

This is a larger VPS system suitable for a CMS-based site that does not have big requirements. You get your own VPS with 2 Gbyte of dedicated memory, root access, and 40 Gbytes of storage.  Beyond those limits it's yours to do anything you want. Free Optimized Cloudflare available.

VPS - 1 gig

This is a small VPS system suitable for a CMS-based site that does not have big requirements. You get your own VPS with 1 Gbyte of dedicated memory, root access, and 16 Gbytes of storage.  Beyond those limits it's yours to do anything you want. Free Optimized Cloudflare available.

The Half-Acre

The Half-Acre hosting plan is unusual. It's a hosting plan that is shared, but can be used happily for reasonable-sized Drupal sites, and will perform well. Our PHP memory allocation is fairly generous (and can be configured by you in the control panel). This hosting plan will give you a great start for developing a Drupal or larger Wordpress site. As with all of our plans, this includes many Drupal tools, including git, composer, and more. You can run your site under PHP 5.3, 5.5 or (soon) 6.0  and set that easily in the control panel.

The Garden Plot

The Garden Plot is our smallest hosting plan.  It's a great choice if you have a low-volume CMS-based site (Drupal, Wordpress, or Joomla) or a static web site. You may not want the Garden Plot if you are going to have heavy traffic, will be needing large amounts of memory for PHP, or need to be able to configure things heavily. With this package you cannot change your php.ini file, and it is the only one of our packages that has a cap on bandwidth per month. But it's a great starting point.

The 8 Special!

This is our latest plan. It's a special Drupal 8 oriented shared hosting plan. We guarantee that a Drupal 8 site will run successfully on this plan (assuming it does not have unusually big demands or very heavy traffic.) Free Optimized Cloudflare available.
