Green Web Hosting for Content Creators
Birdhouse offers web and mail hosting to personal sites and small-medium sized organizations. Birdhouse is a trusted system - all users come to us "through the grapevine." This means you'll never be sharing server space with script kiddies or scallywags. We're also committed to environmentally friendly hosting - our datacenter is not just carbon-neutral, but climate-positive, and committed to offsetting the total carbon-footprint of their server facilities by at least 110 percent.
We specialize in WordPress installation, management, customization and support. Think WordPress is just a blogging platform? Think again. We can help set up a newspaper/magazine site, student portfolio, web-based photo gallery, or school or non-profit site that looks nothing like a blog, while still utilizing WordPress' user-friendly interface. We'll help get your custom web publication up and running quickly.
Don't want WordPress? No problem - our hosting services support almost any type of site, from simple static brochure to custom content management system. We feature four service levels:
|Plan||Student||Plan B||Plan C||Plan D|
|Disk space||500 MBs||2 GBs||5 GBs||15 GBs|
|Bandwidth||15 GBs||25 GBs||60 GBs||150 GBs|
⌘ Monthly rate is based on a yearly billing cycle. No monthly billing is available at this time, sorry. Partial years cheerfully refunded.
What else comes with your Birdhouse Hosting account? Lots. Additional domains, databases, mailing lists, subdomains, detailed traffic reporting, mail forwarders, and much more. All through the user-friendly cPanel account control management system. And we're currently catching more than 99% of spam -- look forward to a super-clean inbox! Not to mention personalized assistance from our expert sysadmins - you'll get treated like a real human being, not an anonymous account name. Check the Service Plans page for details.
