Frequently Asked Questions

What guarantees do you provide?

We provide a 60-day 100% money-back guarantee on all hosting accounts. Everything except for domain registrations, which are managed separately, is refundable.

Do you throttle if I exceed my bandwidth limit?

No. If you exceed your bandwidth during a billing period by 10%, it is waived. Bandwidth in excess of 110% is billed out at 25¢ per GB. If you exceed 200% your allotted bandwidth, however, the site is disabled as a stopgap to prevent unnecessary bandwidth bills.

What security is in place?

We use two filesystem security models: (a) a pivot-root isolation for all services except PHP and (b) a combination of access control lists and open_basedir restrictions for PHP to restrict access to interpreters and filesystem locations outside the pivot root assigned to an account (called "Fortification"). In addition to filesystem isolation and restrictions, brute-force protection is in place for login systems restricting invalid logins. Finally, certain file storage URIs for well-known PHP applications are locked down to serve only static content.

Nothing fits my usage, can we do a personal quote?

Of course. Drop us a line at sales@apisnetworks.com with your requirements and we will be happy to work with you.

Can I change my package type?

Certainly! You may change packages whenever without any change fees. All credit is prorated per diem and applied to the difference of the new package. In the event of a downgrade, credit is converted into additional days.

Do you do only Linux hosting?

Yes, our parents taught us as children to do one thing and do it well. We specialize in hosting with enhanced process isolation to safeguard your data from others.

Do you provide phone support?

Yes, give us a call 7 days a week at (319) GET-APIS (438)-2747 Monday through Saturday, 8 AM to 8 PM. Our staff is available for emergencies beyond normal business hours.

Why are there limits on storage and transfer?

It is better to provide clients with guarantees, like backups and server performance. How do you backup unlimited data? How do you plan hardware for unlimited usage? Sadly, unicorn technology is not where it needs to be yet.

What is "App Memory"?

"App Memory" includes processes spawned from the account such as a terminal session, email connection, or Rails application. Memory used in excess of the provided memory may be paged to disk thereby lowering performance.

How many Passenger workers are permitted per application instance?

Up to 5 workers may spawn for a given instance. More than 5 may be spawned on a case-by-case basis, but puts pressure on your account's available "App Memory".

What applications are supported by Passenger?

Virtually any application that runs off Node.js (this includes Meteor), Python, or Ruby is supported as a standalone Passenger application. This includes derivative frameworks such as Sinatra, Rack, Koa, Mezzanine and software such as NodeBB, Trac, Discourse, and Keystone.
