Which is the right Hosting package?

May 29, 2012 10:30 PM

Hi All,


I have been a BC partner for a couple of years now, I have started to design a website for a company that I work at part time, I did it with the full intention to host it on there owns servers as they already host a couple of other websites, When I bought into BC you could use external hosting.


I have found out today that to be able to use the features of BC you need to be on their hosting (which is not a problem) but I can not experince the hosting plans without purchasing them, which means I can not guess which is the right one.


The website is pretty basic and simplae they do not need any sort of email addresses, no email marketing and no online shop, I have designed it on the Forceful template and the only real feature I can see them using is the sliding web app on the home page of that template.


So my question is will the basic hosting called WEBBASICS be enough for what they want to acheieve with their website?


Or if not which is the option I should choose for them.

    Hi Duncan,


    If the site is very basic and doesn't require email accounts, customer database, forms, etc then yes "webBasic" would be fine. 


    However I would suggest reviewing the plan breakdown below just to ensure you choose the correct plans per your requirements.

    Does that mean that I would be forced to take the most expensive hosting just for a few sliding pictures, even though I dont want any of the other features?


    If using the web app feature yes as the module is not available in any of the webBasic plans. 


    is there anyway to put a trial site into the basic hosting so I can actually test the features?

    Depends if the site is part of cloud then unfortunately not possible.  If created outside of the cloud subscription then we can possibly upgrade to a higher plan. 


    Please provide the site url so we can confirm for you.


    Kind regards,

    What you can do is copy the code from the web app list layout and hard code it into the hompage template, replacing the {module_webapps} tag. You would then need to replace any tags from that layout with hardcoded info, such as image name etc.


    It would mean that you would need to update the template if you wanted to change the images.


    I have done this before on other templates.
