Web Hosting

landpdatacenterFor websites that do not require a large amount of hard drive space or bandwidth, basic web hosting is a cost-effective way of getting on the Internet. You have a choice of hosting your site on our standard web server or our web server with Microsoft FrontPage extensions.

Rest assured that we take care of security, backups, and general server maintenance on our web servers.

What differentiates us from other web hosting companies is our personal service and the many years of experience of our technical staff.

Our $25.00 monthly basic web hosting fee includes:

  • Up to 25 email accounts that match your website’s domain name (POP3 accounts)
  • Unlimited email forwarding to your current email account
  • Unlimited number of email aliases (for example,info@yourdomainname.com)
  • Website traffic statistics
  • Up to 100 MB hard disk storage
  • Up to 3 GB monthly data transfer
  • Daily backups
  • FTP access
  • CGI-Bin Directory (if you’re reading the Non-Geek version you probably don’t need to know this but thought we should include it for the sake of completeness)

Additional services such as streaming media, secure web server, web-based email list management program, additional hard drive space, additional bandwidth, additional email accounts, and web forwarding are available to L&P Media web hosting customers.

Dedicated Hosting

We specialize in dedicated servers using Linux to provide fast, secure, and reliable service for our hosting customers. However, we can also provide dedicated servers running other operating systems.

A dedicated server provides you with the flexibility to run your applications on an individual server (or servers) without the hassles of ownership. This is especially useful for sites requiring significant resources, such as those running JAVA or using streaming media.

We offer dedicated servers starting at $125/month. Bandwidth is a separate charge. We charge $3/GB transferred/month, with a minimum of 10GB/month for colocated and dedicated server customers. For customers requiring 250 GB or more/month, please call for special pricing.

We also offer management services and tape rotation for dedicated server customers.

5points can analyze your server and bandwidth needs and recommend a range of solutions that will best address your requirements. We can design installations supporting redundancy, failover, load balancing, secure transactions or other needs your application(s) may require.

5points can design custom installations supporting redundancy, failover, load balancing, secure transactions, and other needs your application may require.

Additionally, we offer sizing and sourcing consulting for our colocated server customers. We also can provide custom software installation and server configuration services.
