Windows Lite Hosting: Same price as UNIX Lite but only offers 250MB web space, 20 POP3 email accounts, unlimited transfers, control panel, 10 ODBC Connections. I only use this account when ASP is required. Not as powerful as UNIX account.

Innovative Design's Apache Unix (Linux OS) is housed in a datacenter in Dallas, Texas. These are not general population servers subject to overcrowding or spam which causes servers to slow to a crawl. Unix Apache Server Specifications: UNIX is far more stable than Windows in a shared-server, or multi-user environment. The servers are powered by Intel Zeon 3470 processors with 4MB RAM; with SATA hard drives and weekly backups.

The servers are not protected by Barracuda appliances, but exceeded by FortiGate-3810A network security appliances with10-Gigabit Ethernet interfaces. With four AMC expansion slots, the FortiGate-3810A can be customized to exceed furture performance needs. The 26 Gbps firewall performance can be achieved in a full configuration.

Regarding website development, I use Adobe GoLive CS in html format for the widest browser compatibility and accessibility compliance.If the project can be developed in PHP, I stay on a Linux system and maintain much of the PHP code. I develop sites to be as graphically pleasing as possible while keeping the code as complant as possible for minimal browser errors.

When a client desires to run their websites off internal servers, several problems can arise. Other servers rarely contain all the bells and whistles my private/secure server offers and they never not have sufficient speed. Only a couple data centers have OC48 circuits off their servers... makes a big difference when media is streamed. Package support is also very critical when employing databases and script functions. My private server has several thousand dollars worth of pre-installed software packages, which simply means I do not have development restrictions and costly bottlenecks.

If you wish to edit your own website over time, Adobe Contribute is the best option for a brower based editor with a small learning curve. Firefox 3 does not allow the Contribute extension at this time, therefore the best option for Firefox users is Scribefire.

Do you want encrypted and digitally signed emails, to keep them secure and confidential? If you are a personal user, Email Certificates are FREE through our choice vendor Commodo (Click Here). Certificates for multiple computers are under $8.00 a year per computer. This is a client add-on, meaning Innovative Design does not offer any support for this service.

Want spam filtering services without using BoxTrapper or SpamAssassin on the server? I encourage users with Outlook 97 thru 2007 to consider SpamBayes. It's Free and works! It is one of most highly rated open source applications available. Please carefully read the instructions (Click Here), Innovative Design does not offer any support for this product.
