[1] Your first invoice amount will be pro-rated depending on when you start hosting. Thereafter, quarterly billing occurs at the beginning of January, April, July and October each year. All quoted prices are in U.S. Dollars.
[2] Price depends on whether you need 32-bit or 64-bit, which Operating System, and whether you can take advantage of hardware that we already have in place or whether we need to order in new equipment.
[3] For high end servers, you purchase any rack-mount server, install required software, ship it to Santa Rosa, and we will host it for you. Details are on the colo hosting page.
[4] The entire data center is on UPS power with diesel backup which is certified to run for a week or longer in case of power outage, and this backup system is regularly tested. Completely stable since the prior century.
[5] Other databases such as Microsoft Access, MS SQL, MySQL, Oracle, PostGres, etc, may be installed and used subject to licensing restrictions. You are responsible for purchasing database access licenses.
[6] Price depends on whether you order and install the certificate yourself using RDP or require us to do that for you. Pricing will be based on current pricing at DigiCert.com plus a 15-30 minute labor charge.
[7] HREF Tools Corp. offers a 10 percent discount on all hosting fees to Firebird Foundation Members. We can offer you automated daily or weekly ftp-put of a gbak of your data to another hosting service for backup purposes. Firebird 2.1 and 2.5 are available.
