Merchant Engine High Bandwidth Hosting

All of our applications are professionally hosted at a Tier 1 data center in Modesto, California, at a facility with redundant cooling systems, centralized UPS power, standby diesel generator, and FM-200 fire supression systems.  With our services you will never have to upgrade a server, apply a software patch, or worry about a firewall again.  Over the past 10 years we have achieved 99.93% uptime for both web applications and email.

Benifits of Managed Hosting

  • Security - We worry about hacking, DoS attacks, malware, etc...
  • Speed - Hosting facility has virtually unlimited bandwith.
  • Redundancy - Failover backups on all servers and routers.
  • Scalability - A traffic spikes means more business, not a down server
  • Hardware - Latest greatest, without paying for upgrades.
  • Daily Backups - Sort of goes without saying.
Need to apply the latest software patch? Add more bandwidth?

checkmark Nope, we already did it... One less thing to worry about!


Corporate Email

All Merchant Engine Ecommerce and CMS packages include up to twenty 5GB company mail boxes, with additional boxes available at $5 per month. This includes all configuration, setup, and ongoing adjsutments. If you prefer to manage the email yourself, we will give you access to the tools, and provide support.

Benifits of Hosted Email

  • Reliability - Includes 99.99% uptime guarantee, daily backups, on demand archiving and unlimited aliases.
  • Cost - A fraction of the cost of maintaining your own mail server, and a tiny fraction of the cost of hiring an IT professional to manage, patch, and upgrade that email server.
  • Credibility - An email coming from joe@hotmail.com is vastly different than one coming from sales@yourcompany.com
  • Branding - Every time you send an email from a hosted account, you are putting your domain and your brand in front of your customers, prospects, and vendors.
  • Stability - Internet providers offer free email accounts such as you@att.net and you@comcast.net, but change providers and these disappear.
  • Process - Compartmentalized email addresses for billing, shipping, and customer support not only make you look more professional, but streamline your organization.
