Virtual private servers (VPS)

Virtual private servers give you all of the resources of your own dedicated server at a fraction of the cost. You have access to everything from the operating system up, while having fixed resources from the host physical server dedicated to your own virtual server. These rates are for our managed VPS service using solid-state drives (SSD).

Bigger VPSes -- with more RAM, bigger hard drives and more bandwidth -- are available. Please let us know what you need.

Web applications

To enhance security on your server, we offer custom installation of many common web applications -- things like content-management systems, blogs, shopping carts, newsletter lists, wikis, forums, photo galleries, etc. If you are technically savvy, you may very well choose and install many of these applications yourself, but if you'd rather we do it, we will, and we'll also take care of upgrading the software when there are security updates.

Common applications:

Commonly-used applications include PunBB (forum), phpBB (forum), Mediawiki (wiki), Joomla (content-management system), Drupal (content-management system), osCommerce (shopping cart), WordPress (blog and content management, see WordPress hosting above), phplist (newsletter list), Gallery2 (photo gallery), and many more.

Managed hosting and maintenance contracts

While we provide you with web-based tools that simplify the process of managing your web, email and database hosting, experience has show us that some people prefer that we just run the whole lot based on email or verbal instructions from them, or even provide further services to keep things running smoothly for them. We're more than happy to provide these services as an added layer to the standard hosting plans. Think of this as having your own IT employee on staff, but without the salary and benefits!

Notes:

* The following points apply to managed hosting and maintenance contracts: In addition to also offering managed hosting and maintenance contract plans tailor-made to your specifications, minor variances to the above are possible and at the discretion of NinerNet. For example, even though we emphasise that maintenance contracts are for the maintenance of existing web pages, under certain circumstances (especially on template-driven websites) we may consider including the creation of new pages if the time necessary to do so isn't excessive (in comparison to maintaining existing pages) or doesn't involve the necessity to spend time working on layout, formatting or coding. We can't include an exhaustive list of exceptions here, but it shall suffice to say that we are flexible and interested in your satisfaction, and so will work with you to get the job done.
