One Plan Shared Hosting
No more selecting from preset packages that don't quite fit, simply choose the features you want and build your own plan that can grow with you. Upgrades can be requested at any point and are charged pro-rata until your next hosting renewal, so you can buy just what you need now with the confidence that your hosting package can be simply scaled up as you need in the future.

|Web space quota||100MB upwards|

Dedicated servers are available for those who require them. Please click here for more information or contact us with your requirements.
Transfer your existing site. If you already have a web site hosted elsewhere, it is possible to move it onto our service. Your existing domain name can be transferred to our registrar account and we will work with you throughout the transfer process to make sure things run smoothly.
We operate a fair use policy with regards to data transfer limits on shared hosting accounts. Fair use is calculated in direct proportion to the amount of disk space allocated to the hosting account. In general there is nothing to worry about and we would contact you in the event of a serious over use to discuss options.
Notes for existing customers: One Plan replaced all of our previous shared hosting packages in October 2010 with "One Plan"! As an existing customer you will stay on your current package unless you request a regrade to your account, at which point you will be switched to the closest equivalent One Plan setup.
|Email System||Ecological Hosting||Google Apps|
|Email quota||100MB upwards||30GB per user|
|Forwards||Unlimited||20 filters per user|
|Nicknames (like an alias)||n/a||30 per user|
|Mailboxes||Unlimited *||1 per user|
|Email control panel|
|Spam filtering **|
Aliases are additional email addresses that email will be accepted on and you specify the destination for messages inbound on each alias address, usually one of your mailboxes, though it could also be an external address (this type of alias is called email forwarding). It is also possible to use aliases to deliver email to multiple locations (in Google Apps you would use Groups to deliver email to multiple mailboxes).
Both POP3 and IMAP access is supported by mailboxes on either system.
* The number of mailboxes you can create is only limited by the amount of quota you allocate to each one from your main email space. Once all your quota is allocated, you will no longer be able to create any more mailboxes unless you upgrade your email quota or alter the quota on your existing mailboxes to allow space.
** Spam filtering can be disabled on the Ecological Hosting system and is disabled by default so clients actively have to engage and understand the system. In the Google Apps email system spam filtering always on by default.
