Managed Hosting

We specialise in providing a managed hosting service for Drupal and CiviCRM sites, since 2007. Using dedicated servers in Canada, we provide a service built with container technology, that scales from very small to very large sites.

Our service provides security, speed, reliability, backups and monitoring for a surprisingly low monthly cost, backed by years of experience.

All hosting packages are implemented in dedicated virtual operating systems (that's the "container" thing) providing security-in-depth and options for SFTP, ssh, custom domains, custom modules and extensions, etc.

You can learn more about using Docker and containers to host Drupal/CiviCRM at my blog. The service is based on my open source hosting project called Simuliidae (named after the latin family name of the Blackfly species), and the containers themselves are publicly available via the prosimulium project (named after a genus of the blackfly family).

Below is a partial list of organizations using this service.

Green Party of Ontario

The Green Party of Ontario has been using CiviCRM since 2007.

In that year, I setup their (first) Drupal + CiviCRM install for the election, and hosted it for some years afterwards.

More recently, I've started again providing managed hosting for their now-separate CiviCRM + Drupal "secure" site.
