  • Minimus Web Hosting Technical Specifications


    The Minimus hosting package is our entry level shared hosting package. It offers excellent value for money and is perfect for starting a blog or a small content managed website. The Minimus package includes every pro tool that you’ll need to run a successful website. You’ll get 10GB of storage on your server as well as 200GB a month transfer, which is perfect for most small blogs and small business websites. You also get a great selection of other tools including, e-mail, FTP, MySQL, MSSQL and much more.

    The best feature of this package is that if you get the entrepreneurial bug, you can start up to 30 websites on this one account, so you won’t feel hemmed in like other affordable shared hosting solutions that only let you host one website at a time. It’s reasonably priced at per month*, so it’s perfect if you’re on a budget. You can also save by pre-paying for the first year. If you expect your blog or small website to take off and use more storage and bandwidth than the Minimus package provides, then you might want to consider our Medius Web Hosting Package.

    ** Unlimited Subdomains refers to unlimited A-records for subdomains. Each hosted subdomain will use 1 webspace.

    *** This is the free base system of Spam Experts which applies default filtering rules, which are set and controlled by Blacknight. While this works very well on its own, and is very effective at removing incoming spam, it may be the case where you need to control the filtering rules yourself via Whitelists and Blacklists – for this you would require the paid version. An upgrade is available to the premium Spam Experts which includes the ability to whitelist and blacklist email addresses.

    Vhost Limit

    The Vhost limit is the maximum number of active connections to your website at any one moment. A user’s web browser may make multiple connections to your website in order to load your webpage. The number of connections vary against different browsers (Chrome, Firefox, Safari, IE, Opera etc). A single webpage generally consists of a HTML file, CSS & JavaScript files, background images, logos, banners other images, audio and video files. All these files need to be loaded for your website to render in a users browser when they visit your website.

    If you expect your website to be busy a high Vhost limit is good.

    If for example you expect to be on the Dragon’s Den or are presenting at a conference or demoing your product to a group of people for your business then it’s a good idea to think ahead and go with a plan that can handle the increased website traffic and load. There’s nothing worse than people not being able to access your website at a crucial time. Plan ahead.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What are the factors to consider in Web hosting?

    A shared web hosting account provides an allocation of the resources of a physical server depending on the customer’s needs. There are four factors to consider when choosing a shared web hosting package.

    Number of websites: This is the number of different websites that can be hosted on a single shared web hosting package and ranges from 30 sites on a Minimus account to 90 sites on a Maximus account.

    Disk Space: Websites, databases and emails are made up of computer files, like the files on your PC. Measured in gigabytes.

    Monthly Transfer: This is the the amount of data in gigabytes which can be transferred to and from your hosting account per month. It is sometimes called ‘bandwidth’. The more visitors your sites get, the more bandwidth is required.

    Number of Mailboxes: This is the number of email accounts supported by the account, ranging from 50 on a Minimus account to 150 on a Maximus account.

    Click here to compare web hosting options.

  • Should I choose Linux or Windows Web Hosting?

    We offer only Linux hosting on our entry-level web hosting plans. It’s ideal for PHP-based platforms such as WordPress which powers almost half the web.

    If your website requires ASP or ASP.net support you will need to choose Windows. Windows is fully supported on our VPS cloud server plans as well as on dedicated servers.

  • Is there a backup/restore facility?

    Yes, you can protect your website and online data with automated, secure basckups from as little as €1.99 per month with siteBackup.
