Hosting Offer

I’ve offered this to a number of small groups of people, but after working out most of the bugs that I’ve found, I’m ready to offer it to the larger audience that is the readers of this fine publication:

While I have seen many people preferring both Godaddy and Hostgator for their excellent prices and service for their web hosting process, it all depends on business to business which they would prefer.

I am currently the maintainer of a dedicated server, hosted by SagoNet, and the machine is set up to offer virtual hosted domains to any and all who need them. This hosting package includes the following:

  • Web Hosting on Apache 2: All websites are hosted on Apache2 with PHP4 with most common modules installed. If you need a custom module installed, this can typically be worked out as well. Disk space is not limited.
  • FTP access: FTP access directly to web directory, giving full access to access and error logs, as well the ability to create your own directories for storage
  • MySQL access: Each account offers a MySQL database for you to use as you please.
  • Subversion Repository (by request): Revision Control system hosted alongside your website
  • Shell Access (optional, free of charge): If you want shell access, you’ve got it. (Please let me know before I set up the account).
  • SMTP (using SASL authentication), IMAP, POP3, Webmail Access: Send/Receive mail from anywhere: on the road, at home, or anything else. Mail is provided using courier-imap/pop packages with Postfix, and you can have as many addresses as you want.
  • Up to 100GB/month bandwidth: this offers basically limitless bandwidth for anything you need. (I doubt anyone would need this much bandwidth in a month: if you feel that bandwidth is a limiting factor for you, let me know and we will work something out.)
  • Free installation of any packages in Debian Sarge: If there’s something you need, I’ll install it for you.

Stay away from the CPanel hassle. Get yourself on a real machine today, and don’t suffer the limitations of other web hosts! Get full shell access to your data. Gain the freedom of having access to the machine which hosts your files. Or, ya know. Just save me some cash 😉 View different shared web hosting plans and select the one that meets your demands.

Cost for serving depends on setup neccesary, but will not exceed $10 per domain. File a Request and I’ll get you a quote. If someone else is offering the same thing cheaper, I’ll match it.

If you are working on a Semantic Web related project, you may be eligible for reduced price or free hosting. Indicate this in your request.

All quotes will be answered in 24 hours or less.

    Typical, just after I get six months of hosting for my new SW project 😀

    Still, very cool offer!

    Very generous package. A friend may be interested, as bandwidth has always been a problem for him (he ends up almost every 25th upgrading his bandwidth limit for more buckaroos…).
