Website Hosting and Design
Tell Your Website Designer:
Use Green Web Hosting from Maine.Info
Maine.Info's web hosting servers at our IBM/Softlayer datacenter, plus our business offices, are 100% green and carbon neutral. We are listed in the EPA's Top Partner Rankings and Individual Listings, which "highlight the annual green power purchases of leading organizations within the United States and across individual industry sectors." We also donate carbon neutral web hosting to environmental protection organizations such as Marine Mammals of Maine. See our Green Hosting Initiative.
Starting cost is $20/month. We discount 25% to non-profits and often to Maine festivals, so starting cost to these is $15/month. A comparable dedicated server would cost over $500/month.
We run dedicated servers on an IBM/Softlayer rack with accounts secured and isolated by CloudLinux. The servers are rigged for speed with RAID1 SSD flash drives (way faster then disk drives while using less energy), 1 gigabit per second uplink/downlink speed (typical is 10 or 100 megabit), 20 terabytes of server-wide bandwidth per month and vanishingly low 1, 5, 15 minute server load averages (because we never overload a server).
Cloud Computing with Google for Work and Office 365 from Maine.Info
For your email, documents & more, we use enterprise-grade services from Google for Work or Office 365. For non-profits, we use Google Apps for Non-Profits which means free, i.e., $0, enterprise-grade email, documents & more.
Redundancy & Recovery
Using DNS clustering, Maine.Info mirrors all DNS data from our RAID 1 dedicated web servers at IBM/Softlayer in Washington, D.C. to our Linode DNS servers in Atlanta. This means that your Google for Work or Office 365 email, calendars and documents will continue to function even if your website, all our dedicated web servers, the entire Washington, D.C. datacenter or even the nationwide IBM/Softlayer network goes offline. For recovery we use both RAID1 (mirrored SSD flash drives) and Network Attached Storage for daily, weekly & monthly backups. We also offer EMC/Spanning cloud-to-cloud backups for email & document recovery.
Domain Name Registration & Protection
Register a premium domain through Domains.Maine.Info or email email@example.com or call (207) 200-3770. If you host with us and to protect your website, Maine.Info will pay your domain name registration fee in advance and bill you later to make sure that your domain name is renewed each year, even if you forget to pay or your credit card has expired.
