Following hosting variations are available for all Leased Licenses and Perpetual Licenses where our hosting services are engaged.
All Leased Edition Licenses are hosted by us. All Perpetual Edition Licenses might be hosted by us if you choose so. For websites important decision to make is your desired uptime or acceptable downtime for the website. All website software need maintenance, websites are hosted on web server, web servers also require regular maintenance. Sometimes unexpected events happen like harddisk crash, power outage etc. Website cannot be online during certain maintenance activities, just like you cannot use your car during its servicing period. Cost of hosting a website that is online/ available for usage for 99% of the time is very cheap. As you increase desired uptime from 99% to 99.9% or 99.99% or 99.999% cost goes exponentially higher. For 99% uptime charges are just few hundred US$ a year (for Ontogeny requiring professional RDBMS) and for 99.999% charges goes above US$100,000 a year. Since there are so many variations possible, we offer you 4 different choices for “Hosting Options” as detailed below:
