Web Hosting

Claero Systems can host your website or web application.  We use multiple cloud server providers (Rackspace, Softlayer, and VPSville) in the US and Canada.

The following web hosting packages are hosted on LINUX servers that include support for self-managed SSL, MySQL, Java, PHP, CGI, CRON, DNS, SSH, FTP, daily backups, stats, shell access, etc.  We use the Interworx control panel.

Customers are billed by a recurring credit card transaction each month.  There are no contracts and no cancellation fees.

    • $20 / month (1 GB disk space, 10 GB bandwidth, ssh,  mysql, ftp, sub domains, etc.)
    • $40 / month (2 GB disk space, 20 GB bandwidth, ssh, mysql, ftp, sub domains, etc.)
    • $50 / month (4 GB disk space, 30 GB bandwidth, ssh, mysql, ftp, sub domains, etc.)
    • $10 / month 1 GB additional disk space

We no longer host email, but we recommend Google Apps or Office 365 for email hosting. We would be happy to help you implement Google Apps if needed.

Backups

We take daily backups every night and we keep:

    • one backup for each of the last 14 days
    • one backup for each of the last 14 weeks (Sundays)
    • two backups for each of the last 14 months (~7th and ~15th)
    • two backups for each of the last 14 years (~7th and ~15th of September)

Some backups are stored on Amazon S3 but they are strongly encrypted first.

Maintenance Window

The maintenance window is from 1am to noon every Sunday.  We need to reboot each server periodically to apply certain operating system updates.  This time is also used for server migrations and testing.
