About our Servers

Our equipment is co-located with a company in Houston, TX  that purchases certified Renewable Energy Credits using green powered energy (wind).  This represents 130% of the electricity used to both power and cool their server center. While we wish they were getting their energy directly from wind energy this is not feasible to our company at this time. We are however shopping for new co-location services to mitigate this issue.

What is co-location? We pay another company to keep our servers plugged into their system which provides proper cooling, back up power and other attributes necessary to keep a server functioning. Uptime guarantees are important to us and we offer a 99.9% Uptime Guarantee.


Other Hosting Services

We offer add ons to your account such as:

  • Secure Certificates SSL – via Comodo – 128/256 bit Positive SSL certificates – $75 a year (includes dedicated IP address)
  • Dedicated IP addresses – add 24$/year to any hosting package
  • Fantastico One Button Software Installation Suite – FREE!
  • We use the latest version of CPanel so you can access and manipulate all aspects of your site.

I’ve seen cheaper!

We’re sure you have.

At Thrifty Planet, we offer a level of customer service most hosting companies do not rise to meet. Many of our clients are not familiar with the intricacies of web site management. We’re here to help them in any way we can to make owning and operating a website a pleasant experience. We’re often called upon for issues totally unrelated to our services but still in the computer realm.

Our design clients that host with us enjoy free updates that can be managed in 10 minutes or less (many clients enjoy this perk), free cpanel help like adding new email addresses, free google email set up, and more. Just contact us to find out why it’s worth paying that dollar or two more per month.
