Layerblue’sunique approach allows you to purchase a year’s worth of hosting for what you could normally expect to pay per month. Their Code Blue plan offers a windows-based hosting solution with several features that are normally not found in this particular price range. Let’s see what they have to offer.
You’ll get 500 megs of disk space and 25 gigs of monthly data transfer. While the disk space amount could be higher, the data transfer allotment is certainly well worth it. 250 POP3 email accounts come with this package, and you’ll be able to add on 100 aliases, 250 autoresponders as well as 250 forwarders. This should be more than enough for most e-commerce or business websites. A shared SSL certificate is provided free of charge, or you can ask Layerblue to install your own certificate if you prefer.
The control panel offered with this account is the Multilingual Helm Windows 2003 control panel and according to Layerblue, you should be able to administer most of your site from this panel. Support for ColdFusion, ASP, ASP.NET and Frontpage is provided, and you’ll have one MySQL database with 50 megs of storage. If you need additional databases, you can easily add them as they become necessary.
You’ll also get one MS SQL database with the same amount of storage with this account. If you do need to add a database in the future, you can do so through your online control panel. Support for Access 97, 2000, 2002 and 2003 databases is included and you’ll have the ability to set up 10 free DSNs with this account. Once again, if you need more, they can be added later on.
LiveStats 5.0 is provided for your website statistics and you’ll have access Imail from Ipswitch for your web-based email needs. The statistic program will email you reports, either daily, weekly or monthly, based on your personal preferences.
Layerblue offers a 30-day money back guarantee, which is useful since this package does require a year’s prepayment. This should give you more than enough time to make sure that Layerblue is right for you and your website.Related Posts:
