Drupal Hosting Survey

As a hosting company, we're interested in the hosting needs of the Drupal community. We are doing some infrastructure and software planning at the moment, and we thought it would be great to get some feedback from the Drupal community as a whole.

We are conducting this as an open source survey - that is, we're planning on making the results publicly available after the survey closes.  We're planning on leaving the survey up through the end of October, so if you're interested in informing the decisions of hosting companies catering to Drupal, please come fill out the survey.

Drupal Hosting Survey

1 Start 2 Your Needs 3 Conclusion 4 Complete

We're interested in the web hosting needs of people in the Drupal community. This is an open source survey - that is, we will make the results of the survey available to everyone after the survey is completed. We think it's interesting in general to know what people are looking for in Drupal hosting, partly just to have  a baseline of what people are looking for, and of course so that we can improve our hosting to meet your needs better.  Let us know what you think. If you provide your email address you'll go into a drawing for a free year of shared premium hosting with us.

A few simple questions about your web hosting use.
Tell us a little about your hosting use case and anything that is unusual about your needs.
Tell us a little about what types of web hosting you currently use -
Select which type of entity you are.
What control panel does your hosting provider currently give you?
Options my hosting vendor provides with my site
What category (or catagory) of web hosting client are you?
On a scale from 1 to 10 (1 is not satisfied at all, 10 is VERY satisfied) how happy are you with your current hosting plan?

Bash Security Issue - update

Update -

New versions of bash were released overnight that fix the remaining security flaws in the shell. We are in the process of rolling out the second patech to all of our servers and will be finished some time around 10 AM Central Time.

Some of you may have seen the news yesterday about a serious bug in bash allowing code injection.  We are currently in the process of applying updates to all of our servers for this security issue.  Unfortunately it has been discovered that the current available updates are only a partial solution.  We are installing the partial upgrade and looking into some security workarounds until such time that we receive new patches from CentOS.  We're working to continue to provide security to our customers.

Why Host With Us?

We have a special niche in web hosting.  We provide high quality performance-oriented web hosting for CMS systems. Unlike the low-priced commodity web hosts, we have servers set up to support CMS right out of the box. You won't see a lot of the common errors with web hosting that you'll see with non-specialized hosts (running out of PHP memory on a small site, too-small packet sizes for your database, no support for InnoDB on Mysql, etc.) even if you are on one of our shared hosting plans. We understand the needs of CMS users and provide useful plans for a CMS at all price levels.

We also particularly are committed to Drupal hosting. We have a wide range of hosting abilities for Drupal, and can tune a hosting instance to your needs.  Whether you need shared, VPS, or dedicated hosting, we can help you.  We also run clients with multiple-machine hosting (usually multiple VPS's) where each machine is tuned to a special need, like Varnish, MySQL, or PHP hosting, as well as supporting redundant database backends and multiple web servers.

What We Do

Cruiskeen Consulting is a general Internet consulting company, and we do multiple things. Primarily we provide high-capacity custom hosting for people who need high-performance reliable hosting for their Content Management Systems sites.  We primarily work with Drupal, and also do Drupal consulting and web design. Our hosting is tuned to be optimized for Drupal use, although it is also very effective for Wordpress sites.

Our servers are set up for the Drupal developer, and have Drush, git, and other useful services pre-installed.  We will happily work with you to provide other custom services for your site, such as Varnish, Apache Solr, and memcached. Our servers all use the APC PHP cache and our default MySQL servers are set up to be successful for using Drupal.
