VPS with FREE SSL, DirectAdmin (cPanel optional),ClientExec licenses
plus get a Secondary DNS-Only remote VPS too!
What is "lagniappe"?
Simple, something extra given to a customer just because...
Lagniappe Internet is all about helping you run your web hosting business. To
do so properly means you need a few things... This package gets you everything
you need to get started.
First we start with a Virtual Private Server (VPS) on an under-loaded server
with true server class hardware including ample memory & RAID drive arrays. We
constantly monitor our servers, and never over-sell them.
Next you should use a control panel that people can use to help themselves in such
everyday tasks as setting up email accounts, additional domains, FTP, etc. This
not only simplifies your life, but your customers feel better that they don't
have to bother you to make minor changes. So this package includes the popular
DirectAdmin control panel (internal use) license for you and your customers.
Optionally, you can get cPanel/WHM licenses for just $7.50/month, half the regular
rate -- special through for this offer, just PM/Email to get it. We do recommend
Advanced or Premium VPS accounts for cPanel because of a larger footprint.
Then you need some type of billing and support system, and that system should
preferably be able to be setup to integrate with your control panel to be able
to add, or even suspend/re-activate accounts if necessary. And that system should
have use SSL encryption to secure the transmission to and from the billing/support
system... so we'll also provide you with a SSL certificate for your domain.
Lastly, you really want your secondary DNS on another server on another network -
complete with it's own separate IP address. So included in this package is a 2nd
DNS-Only VPS. We'll setup DNS replication from your primary VPS to the secondary.
For cPanel VPSes, we'll install cPanel's DNS-Only option with built in replication
abilities. The secondary vps can only be used for dns.
We'll help protect your and your customers' data with daily backups. We run a vzdump
backup nightly (a short suspend may be required), and then copy that offsite. We also
make weekly backups to a NAS unit in the office.
Basically you'll get everything you need to get up and going...

then shoot me a PM here or email me at rob -at- lagniappeinternet.com and
reference this post. I'll get you setup with your DA (or cPanel) and CE licenses,
secondary dns vps and then when you're ready, we'll start the SSL request process.

Q. Do you monitor your servers or our VPS'es?
A. Yes! We use redundant Nagios systems, plus external monitoring as well. We will happily monitor your VPS as well just let us know you want it.
Q: Do you allow proxy sites, IRC, warez or other copyrighted and/or illegal material?
A: No. VPSes found to be running any of the above will be disabled without warning.
Q: Do you make backups of all VPSs?
1) Nightly vzdump on the same server, then copied to another server.
2) Weekly copy of the vzdump to a NAS unit in New Orleans.
3) We can mail you a CD/DVD based copy of the vzdump to you. Free annually, $5 plus shipping afterwards.
But we still suggest that you make and keep a backup yourself as well.
