Orbit hosts websites on servers running the Linux operating system and Apache web-server software, and our websites are implemented using PHP and MySQL database software (LAMP). Orbit leases servers from Steadfast Networks that come with a 100% network uptime Service Level Agreement (SLA) and are located in fully redundant SSAE16/SAS70 audited Chicago data centers in downtown Chicago, IL.
A shared hosting option is applicable to most of the low traffic sites that Orbit builds using the Mighty-Site CMS. This package includes a shared hosting environment on dedicated servers leased from Steadfast.net.
A shared hosting option is applicable to most of the low traffic sites that Orbit builds using Wordpress. This package includes a shared hosting environment on dedicated servers leased from Steadfast.net.
Orbit configures optimally-configured servers for Drupal websites. This package includes options for either shared server hosting or cloud hosting environments leased from Steadfast.net. Dedicated server hosting is also available.
Additionally, Orbit will work with clients who require third-party Drupal hosting. Example Drupal hosting services:
The Cloud Hosting option is best for high performance load websites and medium traffic websites with large spikes. Cloud hosting is similar to a traditional Virtual Private Server environment with additional scalability features. Every Cloud account can be individually configured to automatically increase performance to handle traffic spikes. For these reasons, this solution is typically offered for e-commerce websites requiring integration and specific security configuration. Pricing depends on the specific needs of the website due to storage, performance, and bandwidth.
Dedicated server is a good option for high traffic sites and clients with multiple high performance websites. If it is determined that a dedicated server is required, Orbit will consult with the client to agree on an appropriate server environment. Pricing depends on the specific needs of the website due to security, performance, and bandwidth.
The Failover Backup server is a way to provide a secondary hosting option if the primary server fails for an extended period of time. The failover server is hosted with another data center besides Steadfast in the event that the entire Steadfast network fails. Typically, this server can be a VPS or Cloud server and is upgraded to handle the incoming traffic. This DNS failover is managed by Orbit and can happen automatically or manually depending on client needs.
Orbit offers DNS Hosting with DNSMadeEasy.com. Domain monitoring and Failover services are available with DNSMadeEasy.com.
