Web Hosting Plans for Business

We've always been in business for business, and our business web hosting plans reflect our continuing commitment to commerce.  Our very first website was the Tarheel Mall, which eventually grew to more than 1,700 web stores and won a raft of web site awards.  We implemented one of the first secure transaction systems on the web, provided one of the first web-based control panels, and our custom scripts are still used by many of our customers who say that they've never found anything better.  Today, we aim for three goals in our business web hosting plans -- security, reliability, and ease of use.


You want sales from your web sites, but you also want your customers' information to be kept private.  We take security seriously.  We constantly monitor our web servers for illicit traffic and security weaknesses.  We never store your confidential data on publicly-accessible web servers, and our e-commerce systems are designed to combine powerful encryption with common sense precautions.  Protecting confidential information is important to us.  As part of this commitment, we are an authorized reseller of SSL certificates to secure your web site, including the new Extended Validation (green bar) certificates.

  • Multi-layer security model with 24/7 monitoring
  • High-grade encryption provided by Verisign, Thawte, and GeoTrust, including the new Extended Validation (green bar) certificates
  • Compliant with PCI DSS standards to ensure that your credit card information is kept secure
  • All web servers located in a secure facility with multi-factor authentication required for any physical access


Easy website management

You've got enough to worry about just running your business.  Your web site should make your job easier, not harder.   All of our business hosting plans include access to the content management system and control panel of your choice, as well as access to our own script library.  In addition, we're always happy to help you with anything you might need for your web site, and we don't charge for support.  Never have.

  • Flexible and simple control panels to control your web site (Webmin or Plesk available)
  • Apache web server running on CentOS Linux means security and stability
  • Three levels or content management:
    • WordPress -- one of the easiest and most popular content management systems available today.  With the 5-minute setup, you can be up and running in a hurry.
    • Joomla! -- one of the most popular content management systems available, with hundreds of extensions.  Shopping carts, multilingual sites and message boards are just a few of the modules that you can use to extend your web site.
    • Drupal -- a complex but feature-rich system capable of handling almost any task.  Learning Drupal can take a little time, but once you get the hang of it, there's almost nothing it can't do!
