With the Storm WebHosting service, your website is hosted in our secure hosting facility, directly connected to our network. Our experts monitor our environment around the clock and we offer technical support packages to meet your needs.
Storm knows you have enough on your plate without worrying about your server’s security or bandwidth costs, that’s why we’ve opened our Data Center to you. We can house your equipment, anywhere from a single tower or 1U server to a full 42U rack cabinet at very competitive rates.
Self-managed colocated server includes:
- Redundant Power Supply

The Storm Managed Server Administration Package includes virus protection, software updates, server security, and backup protection.
Storm will provide daily back-up services that include O/S, applications, information data and databases. The client will supply Storm all necessary software plus the original software keys. The client will supply Storm with two (2) complete sets of back-up tapes, so that storm will maintain one (1) set on-site for daily back-ups, and the other set to be sent to an “off-site” storage area. These tapes can be rotated weekly by Storm technicians, as requested by the client.
Virus Prevention Service
Storm installs and maintains up-to-date anti-virus protection, helping to ensure the client server is protected from attacks and viruses. The cost of the anti-virus software is the sole responsibility of the client, and must be provided to Storm with the original keys. Storm will install ongoing patches provided by the software manufactures by configuring the server to auto search and load as patches are released.
Storm will notify the client of problems on a priority basis. This is accomplished through assigning dedicated members of the Storm team to the Storm Server Monitoring System as well as the WebGuard Paging System.
