Hosting Services

Database-backed Website Hosting: $200/year

This includes Drupal, Wordpress, custom PHP websites, etc. A hosting fee waiver exists for certain types of sites and scenarios. Contact the Programming and Web Development team for more information. Storage pricing is negotiable for sites which require more than 2 gigabytes.

Dedicated Virtual Machine: $1000/year

Your own Linux or Windows virtual machine that allows you to install any web or database software (which may not be available in the College's shared hosting environment). Your application(s) will be hosted separately from the rest of the College's web applications, providing dedicated CPU and RAM and additional disk space. The virtual machine is placed on redundant computing hardware, which keeps your application responsive during a network, storage, or virtual host failure. You will get full administrative access to the virtual machine and a suite of web-based monitoring tools. This is an alternative to our shared hosting environment and the $200/year hosting fee for database-backed websites. Storage pricing is negotiable for virtual machines which require more than 100 gigabytes.
