Private Hosting Servers
Rates for Non-Design Clients
Universal features & specs for all hosting accounts. Only billing term varies.
Rates for Design Clients
Note: Design Clients receive a slightly discounted rate because of the initial website investment they made.
All Hosting Accounts Include:
Datacenter locations currently include Lithuania, Germany, United Kingdom and Los Angeles
SSL Form Processing
A free Form Sentry account is included with your hosting service at no additional cost.
Create a domain email address for your website (ie: firstname.lastname@example.org). You can create as many as you need, there is no limit.
Fetch mail through any email client of your choice using IMAP/POP3 or check mail using one of the webmail clients installed on the server.
Your hosting cPanel includes AWSTats, which is a tool to track and analyze website traffic. Logs can also be checked from directly within VedaCMS.
FTP is used to upload/download files directly from your hosting account. Most clients won't need to use this because content is managed within VedaCMS, but the option is there for those who do.
Your hosting account uses cPanel, which is an industry leading control panel software used by many hosting providers. Many hosting related tools available for advanced users.
24/7 Server Monitoring
Both servers are monitored 24/7 by the California & Florida datacenters where they're located. They will automatically reboot or fix any hardware issues as needed.
This is the amount of space clients have available on their hosting accounts. Most sites I design use less than a quarter of that amount.
85GB Monthly Bandwidth
Bandwidth refers to the amount of traffic that is allowed through your site. The limit is capped high. I've never had a client exceed this amount.
Free SSL for your site using the OpenSSL standard included with cPanel.
Ability to generate & download a website backup anytime from within cPanel
Flexible Account Changes
I'm happy to make whatever disk size & bandwidth adjustments are needed to your account (within reason, of course).
Option to have me register & manage the domain name for you to allow for complete anonymity. No extra fee beyond the annual domain registration cost.
My hosting plan has been tailored to meet the needs of what most entertainers will require with respect to bandwidth, disk space and reliability.
Because hosting is provided on my own private VPS servers that I have full control of, I am very flexible in terms of upgrading bandwidth and disk space when needed for no additional fee (within reason).
My hosting services are intended as a convenience & extra level of identity protection for you. Unlike a traditional web host, I will never ask you to reveal your real name or location. Online payments are collected & processed from the payment merchant's website so your real life billing info is never stored on my servers.
Optional domain management included at no extra cost aside from annual domain fee. Domain is registered by Veda Designs so you don't need to divulge your real name or billing info to a domain registrar.
My hosting services are fully-managed, though my clients still have access to a hosting control panel (cPanel), where they can view web site statistics, manage domain email addresses and browse their files on the server. They are also provided ftp access in case they need to have another developer work on the site.
Not Available for Support 24/7:
Please understand that because I'm a freelancer and work alone, I can't offer traditional 24/7 customer support. The datacenter monitors my servers 24/7, so if there's downtime or some other issue, they'll automatically take steps to resolve it. I'm available for email and hosting related support, but only during my normal work hours.
To ensure the server is secure and stable for everyone, I do restrict what kind of scripts or 3rd party applications are allowed to be uploaded and installed to the server. Clients who wish to install their own dynamic scripts (calendars, newsletters, form processors) or have someone do this for them must first contact me so I can research it for security exploits.
Not For Heavy Media Streaming:
Although my VedaCMS software includes a basic video gallery, my hosting servers are NOT meant for companions who require heavy video streaming. The bandwidth and server resource requirements for this would be greater than what is allocated for individual accounts. If you're in need of heavy media streaming capabilities, it will be necessary to choose a different host or utilize a video streaming service like Vimeo for off-server video hosting.
