Web Hosting (cPanel)

A service of IET

A web site hosting service using the industry leading cPanel application allows departments to run a web site without the investment in purchasing and maintaining hardware and software, and provides security, reliability, recoverability, and reduced risks associated with server downtime, file corruption, security vulnerabilities, and slow performance.​

  • Robust, secure, and reliable server environment
  • Nightly system backups for disaster recovery
  • Client controlled backups and file restores
  • Secure pages (SSL) available
  • Automated recovery in case of server failure
  • 24/7 service monitoring
  • Weekly web log reports for tracking site access
  • Management of files and folders via SFTP
  • Ability to enable and disable features on web site
  • Simple interface for web site management
  • Web sites support PHP and CGI scripts (PERL)
  • Web sites have MySQL database access with client managed databases
  • Ability to integrate CAS authentication into web site
  • Scripted installations for Wordpress

A Web Hosting Account provides a user the following:

  • 1 GB of disk space
  • Up to 10 web sites
  • Up to 100 databases (limited only by space)

The web hosting service does not include site-level backups. We do backups of the systems for disaster recovery purposes. However, an individual site or database can be restored, but there will be a charge for time and materials. Site level and database backups can be performed by the user via the cPanel interface.

For configuration of your site, assistance with cPanel beyond the self-help resources, and any other requested services, IET offers a professional services engagement charged on a time and materials basis.
