Which FileMaker Hosting plan do you need?
When it comes to hosting your FileMaker solution, there are many options available and you may not know where to start.
If you're trying to decide between Shared Hosting or Dedicated Hosting service here are several key questions to consider:
Dedicated FileMaker Hosting
Our dedicated hosting plans allow users to host their FileMaker solutions in a secure environment taking advantage of the benefits of FileMaker Server. Let our staff handle the monitoring and maintenance of the server for you.
Dedicated hosting is perfect if your solution is using FileMaker Server 16 - 18 and you plan to have multiple remote users. A dedicated server gives you more room for your data and the ability to upload multiple files.
QuickBooks Cloud Hosting
Our QuickBooks Desktop Hosting plans allow you to enjoy a traditional desktop experience with all the benefits of the cloud.
QuickBooks hosting is the ideal option for users who want to have their QuickBooks file in the cloud and would like to integrate FileMaker with QuickBooks Desktop. As an authorized standard host for QuickBooks software, we're committed to offering our clients high-quality servers and excellent customer support.
Shared FileMaker Hosting
Our shared hosting plans offer users an option to host smaller or legacy FileMaker solutions in a secure environment. Utilizing the latest technologies and the strictest practices ensures your data is safe and secure.
Shared hosting is the most economical option available on the market and is a great option for hosting smaller files with few users. If your solution is running an old version of FileMaker, this may be a good choice for you.
FileMaker Hosting Features
We have a robust alert system in place and, in the event that service is interrupted, we are automatically alerted. In most cases, we catch the issue before our customers notice a problem. Our alert system pings a dedicated FileMaker test file on each of our servers every 5 minutes ensuring that FileMaker Server and everything needed to support it is up and running.
Our job at PCI is to keep your FileMaker server up and running to ensure your data is backed up daily and secured with the highest level of encryption technologies and state-of-the-art remote connection mechanisms.
With our shared hosting plans, we own all our own servers, they are not shared by any third-party and there is no virtualization. We fully control everything on them, which is the main reason they are so stable and speedy.
For our dedicated hosting plans, we capitalize on the security, stability and strength of the Amazon Web Services (AWS) technology. When you host with us, you know your files are on a world-class infrastructure and managed by AWS certified experts. We’ve crafted these specialized plans to fit the niche needs of a FileMaker hosting customer.
When necessary and appropriate, we will restart the servers for necessary OS updates or FileMaker Server updates. Restarts are typically done after hours when most customers are not impacted. When restarts are needed, we schedule it with an email announcement to each customer.
Our staff is always willing to help via phone or email. If you notice a connection or speed issue with your server, we invite you to contact us.
FIleMaker Server Security
We utilize the latest technologies and strictest security practices to ensure that your is data safe and secure from prying eyes and the system itself is constantly monitored by our experts.
All data transfers are encrypted using SSL certificates, direct server access is limited, and only the necessary ports to run FileMaker Server (and IWP/PHP) are opened. We also limit third-party services that may add to the complexity and potential vulnerability of the machine.
Per FileMaker and Productive Computing's policy, each customer’s data files are secured with username and password authentication. Only our server administrators here at Productive Computing, Inc. have access to where the files are stored, however, as an added layer of security, we do not retain the passwords to open your database files unless you explicitly provided us with those credentials. In addition, encryption at rest can be incorporated for an added layer of security.
