This is the third in a series of blog posts about Southwest Cyberport web hosting plans.  If you missed the first one, you can view it here.  You can also read about the technical details of SWCP’s web hosting infrastructure on our companion blog.  This article will explain the Pro Plan, and what type of sites it works well for.

Pro Plan
Cost: $25/month
Features are 2000 MB of storage, 30 GB of monthly transfer, CGI support, advanced web statistics, MySQL and web applications, 15 email boxes.

Pro web hosting is for sites with heavy duty requirements, or developers seeking the flexibility to roll their own custom applications.  With 2000 MB of storage, 10 MySQL databases, 30 GB of transfer and 15 email boxes, this is the package for your busy company web site, your CMS, or your high volume e-commerce site.

Most large websites today use a database as part of their design.  The Pro package offers access to up to 10 MySQL databases, MySQL being the premiere database for the web.  In addition, many web applications, such as forums, content management systems, and shopping carts require MySQL.  If your site or application requires MySQL, and is not one of the web applications offered as part of the basic package, then the Pro package is what you want.

Developers choose the Pro package for access to MySQL, PHP, and CGI.  Your imagination is the limit to what you can do with those ingredients.  Whether you are just learning the skills, or you are building the next Internet sensation, or both, this is the plan for you.

Being on the web does not mean a thing if no one sees your site.  The Pro package offers advanced web analytics in the form of Piwik.   Piwik real time web analytics provides you with detailed reports on your website visitors: the search engines and keywords they used, the language they speak, your popular pages, and much more.  These statistics show you what is working and what is not, and can guide you to greater success on the Internet.  To use a buzzword, it is invaluable in helping with search engine optimisation (SEO).
