About our Servers:
All of our web and email hosting solutions are run from secure Linux based LAMP Stack servers utilizing mirrored and striped RAID array discs (RAID 10) for optimum data read/write speeds and redundant data storage. We even use SSD hard drives to make them even faster! Not only do all of our sites run fast, the chance of data loss with redundant disks and regular backups is virtually zero. We take every precaution with your data so that you can forget about it and know that everything simply works.
Our servers live comfortably in a climate controlled environment in a data center with 24/7 monitoring to help ensure the longevity of hardware and reduce the need for downtime. In fact, out Linux based servers can easily run 24/7 for 5 years without even requiring a reboot! Additionally, we use state of the art medical grade UPS battery backup systems to keep the servers running even in the event of a power failure.
Oh, did I mention we are located right here in Billings, MT? That means you get local supprt from 'Dave the Computer Guy' - I even speak fluent english as my first and only language! If you prefer support in Arabic or Chinese then please call the other guys because we proudly speak english only.
Hosting Package Details
Domain Name Registration
Darsow Web Design also offers domain name registration service. Domain registration is needed for any of the hosting packages and, if you don't already have a domain name, we can help you get it registered and setup quickly. We charge only our actual cost for this which is currently only $15 per year per domain. Domain parking and forwarding is also available to all of our clients at no charge.
(NOTE: a small fee may apply if you are transferring a domain from another registrar, but this is typically only a one time fee of $15)
Don't need a website but would like to have better email service at your own domain name? This solution allows you to do exactly that. We support POP3 as well as IMAP & (of course) SMTP email protocols. Our email hosing has NO LIMIT on bandwidth or file size for attachments and has a whopping 2GB of storage per address directly on our servers.
E-mail only hosting from Darsow Web Design includes up to 2 email addresses for only $6 per month. Need more addresses? No problem, you can curchase additional blocks of 2 for only $2 more per month. There is no setup fee involved and we can help you configure your email client of choice to access our state of the art email server. Not sure what email client to use? Darsow Web Design uses and recommends Mozilla Thunderbird (Free Download).
A domain name registration is required for email hosting accounts.
Basic Web Hosting Package
For only $5 more than our e-mail only hosting, you get 5GB of disk space for your website, unlimited bandwidth for file transfers & email, and up to 4 email accounts. This hosting package is a bargain for those looking do do a simple HTML based web site. It has all the benefits of our RAID 10 Apache server and only lacks support for advanced scripting and database integration with PHP & MySQL. But then again, if you don't require those why pay extra?
At only $10 per month this is probably the best deal around on an unlimited file transfer hosting account. We dare you to try and find a better deal anywhere.
Premium Web Hosting Package
Our most popular package. The Premium hosting package from Darsow Web Design gives you 12GB of disk space and unlimited file transfer bandwidth combined with PHP & MySQL support to power even the most demanding dynamic database driven site or even a web based (cloud computing) application. You also get unlimited email addresses and multiple FTP accounts to manage your files.
To make your data even more secure, this hosting package adds daily backups to the built in security and speed of our RAID 10 array servers. For less than $12 per month, this is the best choice for most clients in Billings or anywhere for that matter.
Platimum Web Hosting Package
The name says it all. Platinum hosting from Darsow Web Design in Billings, MT offers you everything you could possibly need to run your website and company email. 20GB of website file storage plus Unlimited everything else means there is never a chance of running out of storage space or having extra charges for bandwidth overages. You even get unlimited FTP accounts and databases which allow even the largest of companies to have multiple web masters and run multiple cloud based applications in addition to their database driven site. At only $16 per month this is an unheard of bargain. Many of our competitors charge in excess of $60 per month for similar hosting.
If you are currently hosting your site with someone else, you are probably paying way too much.
