Ala Carte - Additional Email Quotas

All email accounts have a diskspace quota. For the WebStar Discount, Basic, and Small Business packages the quota is 25 MB. For the WebStar Business and eCommerce packages the quota is 50 MB. Quotas can be increased for a nominal charge. $5 per month increases the quota for your domain to 50 MB. $10 per month increases the quota for your domain to 100MB. Each user in your domain is permitted to move up to the maximum quota subscribed.

Sometimes greater quotas are needed. Comstar's GigaPile email service allows email quotas as large as 5 GB.  This service is sold on a per-user basis.

1 GB .......................................... $5.00
2 GB .......................................... $7.50
3 GB .......................................... $10.00
4 GB .......................................... $12.50
5 GB .......................................... $15.00

Ala Carte - Spam & Virus Filtering for Email

Email filtering is required for all email accounts hosted at Comstar.. Email accounts are filtered for junk email and viruses. The cost to set up the service is $25 per domain. The monthly rate is $1.25 per filtered email account. For example:

1 account .......................................... $1.25
2 accounts .......................................... $2.50
5 accounts .......................................... $6.25
10 accounts .......................................... $12.50
25 accounts .......................................... $31.25
50 accounts .......................................... $62.50


Each filtered account receives their own web interface to customize filter settings. The web interface can also be used to look at any messages blocked.

Ala Carte - Additional FTP Logins

Each web hosting account comes with a single username/password to manage your website. You can login through FTP or Microsoft Frontpage/Expressions. We can add additional login users for you if needed. Since this requires our time and resources to manage users, we charge $1.25 per month per login for this service. A single $50 setup covers any number of logins performed at the same time. This service can be added to any of our hosting plans.

Ala Carte - Extra Website Development Server

If you are developing your own website, we recommend that you develop on your own computer and then publish to our web servers. This way you have the master copy and can test prior to making the site public.

Sometimes it is not possible to fully test a website prior to publishing, or you wish to be able to test in a more ""real"" environment, or you have several developers at different locations each needing access to the development site. For these reasons you may wish to have Comstar host a development site for you. The development site can continue to use your domain, with a name like dev.yourdomain.com. The site will be placed on one of our development servers. You can work with the development server as the master copy, modify as needed, and then publish to your live site.

This service can be added to any hosting package for $15 per month. One time set up fee $50.00.

Ala Carte - MS Streaming Media

Microsoft streaming media can be added to any hosting package. There is a one time $50 setup plus a monthly charge. With the WebStar Discount and Basic package the monthly rate is $10. For the WebStar Small Business package or above the rate is $5 per month.

Streaming media diskspace usage and bandwidth consumption count toward the limits of the chosen package.

Additionally we offer a "streaming media" hosting package. This is for clients who continue to host their main website at another provider, but just wish to add on MS streaming using a subdomain or generic address.

Monthly fee .......................................... $19.95
Diskspace .......................................... 50 MB
Monthly bandwidth .......................................... 1 GB
FTP access ..........................................
FrontPage access ..........................................
Backup power ..........................................
Onsite generator ..........................................
SONET backbone ..........................................

 

Basically all of the infrastructure benefits of Comstar's hosting are available. This package does not include any other web hosting features other than those shown above. The best deal is to subscribe to one of Comstar's Webstar standard hosting packages and add on the streaming media.

Ala Carte - Real Streaming Media

Real Streaming Media can be added to any hosting package. Real Servers can stream Flash, Real Audio, Microsoft Media, QuickTime and more. For economy you may wish to stick with Microsoft Streaming Media. But if you need a robust streaming solution, our Real Server may be the answer. There is a one time $250 setup fee and then $25 per month.

Streaming Media diskspace usage and bandwidth consumption count toward the limits of the chosen hosting package.

Ala Carte - Additional Domains & Subdomains

Additional domains that resolve to the top level of the same website can be added for no additional monthly charge with any hosting package.

Sometimes you may wish a separate domain to resolve to a page within your existing website. Or, you may wish to have a subdomain resolve to a page within your existing website. Deep-linked domains require us to create a separate entry to manage the domain. It also creates additional work to monitor bandwidth usage. For these reasons we charge extra for this service. The charge is $1 per month per domain or subdomain. With this small charge creating such links can be worthwhile.

If you prefer to have no charge, we can point the domains or subdomains to the top level of your site. Then you can use ASP programming to determine the requested domain and redirect within your site.

Ala Carte - Website Monitoring

At Comstar we monitor our shared servers 24 hours a day, every day. We can also have our monitors specifically monitor your website and send you an email notice with the occurrence of any trouble. This service can be added to any of our hosting plans. The cost is a one time $25 setup plus $5 per month.
