Why Host With Us?

As with every hosting company, we're not for everyone. Most of the people who host with us do so for one of several reasons:

  • They're tired of dealing with huge commodity-hosting companies that don't understand their needs, and can't be bothered to help. We're a small company. If you have a problem you'll deal with someone who actually has a stake in the company and (I promise) will do their best to help.

  • The one-size-fits-all hosting plans at most companies really don't fit anyone. We have some small shared hosting plans, like everyone else, but we also are willing to do customized hosting packages for the people who don't fit. We're flexible. One example? Our plans offer your choice of different PHP versions which you can select on the control panel. Just pick what you need.

  • We are very committed to supporting Drupal. We support Drupal from our small shared hosting plans to our full dedicated server plans. We're particularly excited to be supporting a shared hosting plan that works quite well with Drupal 8, and includes all of the tools you'll need for D8 support. Don't get us wrong, this is still a shared hosting plan, with the limitations that brings, but it's a great platform for doing development work and production hosting for lower volume D8 sites. 

  • We understand CMS systems, particularly Drupal and Wordpress. Our servers are built for CMS systems – but they're also general hosting solutions, so if you need to host a static site or Ruby on Rails or some other environment, we can help there too.

  • Our servers are all managed. So for example, though our VPS systems may cost a little more per month than with some providers, you also won't need to update the server software yourself, or work to keep your server running – we do the server management so you don't have to.

  • You get full control over the server. All of our plans include ssh access, and our servers have web devel tools like drush, composer, node.js, ansible, git, and more pre-installed for you. So you get the power of a real login, with many of the tools you'll need installed already.

  • We think your devel workflow is your decision. The trend with a lot of the CMS hosting companies is to pre-build your workflow. We realize that works great for some people – but for others it doesn't. We're happy to work with you, and we think you should get what you want, not what we want.

  • We have a strong commitment to Open Source, including in our hosting environment. Our stack, control panel and more are all Open Source software (and we think Virtualmin/Webmin/Cloudmin are a lot better than Cpanel).

  • If you need something else, let us know – we can probably work something out.

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.
