Many of our clients have started with Shared Hosting and later upgraded to Business Hosting to receive more resources to better handle increased website traffic, more emails per hour, LiteSpeed Web Server and the other benefits of using Business Hosting to continue growing their sites.
Going up from there is comfortable with any SSD Cloud 4 or above so that you have the resources you need to continue growing your site and success. If the 10 Tiers of SSD Cloud are not able to fit your needs, we have several Dedicated Servers to choose from that give you your dedicated resources available to you whenever you need them. You have all of the available features to use in your own Cloud Portal such as Load Balancers, DNS Management, Firewalls, Snapshots, extra Volumes, Object Storage (to name just a few).
We also provide you with a Virus Scanner for your account so that you may scan your account for viruses. This included tool will allow you to Scan Mail, Scan Your Entire Home Directory, Scan Your Public Web Space, and Scan Your Public FTP Space. We also perform virus scans and monitor our servers 24/7 for you.
Our SSD Cloud Servers and Dedicated Servers provide you with full root access to install and configure your server in any way that you wish. We have several helpful knowledgebase guides in case you need help installing and configuring a firewall. Furthermore, you are also able to run any scans on your server upon request for any Managed services with Hostwinds. You can also order the Windshield service if you need any help securing your SSD Cloud.
It is essential to keep your applications up to date and use strong passwords for your server, email accounts, login details, and applications. Moreover, we highly recommend changing your password every few months to keep your site safe and secure.
Shared and Business Hosting allow you to have a full cPanel backup and store a daily backup of your entire account for up to 364 days.
We also provide you with incremental backups using Object Storage for any SSD Cloud or Dedicated Server. Also, Hostwinds allows you to check the integrity of your backups to ensure that you can restore your entire server from a backup. You can also request that we restore any or all files for you if you have a backup service by opening a support ticket with your request.
We are also able to provide Snapshot backups so that you may take a snapshot of your entire SSD Cloud server anytime within the Cloud Portal. You can use this Snapshot to restore your server whenever you like. Snapshot backups also allow you to create a new server from the Snapshot so that creating up to 25 servers at a time can be done with a few clicks of a button, all through your own Cloud Portal.
Any backups that you have added to your account through your backup service are in our highly-available cluster of backup servers. These backups have low latency to make restoring your account from Object Storage or a Snapshot incredibly fast.
We also offer RapidSSL ($75 / year) and WildCard Rapid SSL ($150 / year) certificates for the extra security you may be looking for as you build trust with your website visitors. We are happy to help you install these SSL Certificates for any Managed service as part of our Tiers of Support.
We do offer a VPN for purchase so that when you do connect to the internet, you can connect to a secure VPN server before sending any data via FTP, through an email, or while browsing the web. A VPN ensures that your connection remains over an encrypted connection and hidden from the bad actors.

For current Hostwinds clients, it is important to review the Anniversary Billing dates for any new services during the Checkout for the length of your first invoice amount.
Basic allows for one website as the primary domain to have a web hosting. Advanced allows for one primary domain and three addon domains (four sites total). Ultimate allows for one primary domain and an unlimited number of addon domains to have a web hosting.
Adding a website as an addon domain allows you to create email accounts, build your site using Weebly, install WordPress with a few clicks, and take advantage of the wealth of features included for your account.
Domain name registration is an essential part of owning your website and is an extra cost separate from web hosting. Shared and Business Hosting clients that choose a Billing Cycle of a year or longer may register or transfer their domain name to Hostwinds at no additional cost if the domain name registration or transfer is less than $25 a year.
