WordPress website monitoring, updates, & database and file backups for sites hosted elsewhere, starting at just $7/month! (Included free if hosted with SustainableSources.)
- WordPress Site Hardening.
WordPress has become very popular, therefore it has become a target for hackers. We help you become less of a target!
- WordPress Hack Recovery.
Has your site been hacked? We know what to look for and can get your site cleaned and back up and running.
- We have switched to a new Domain Name Registrar. The site is easier to navigate and the company’s politics are cleaner, too.(If you registered your domain yourself through us before 2012 you probably did so through the old domain name registrar. We encourage you to transfer to the New Registrar at your earliest convenience.)
- We run Apache2 servers with PHP5.5.x and PHP7.x. Available databases are MySQL5.5.x, MySQL5.6.x and PostgreSQL9.x. Server software is updated weekly (or more frequently as needed in the case of security fixes).

- 100% renewable energy powered.
We can design your site, give it a tune up, and help you keep your content fresh. From $50/hr, with discounts for enviros.
- Sorry, We are not currently taking new web development clients.
Thanks for all the hard work you put into the new website. It looks great and the transition went so smoothly. I’m already getting great feedback from customers!

I want to let you know how much I appreciate the postings on your site. In fact, I found an item that is critical to a project I’m working on in Del Rio. You announced and had a link to the new ASTM listing for Earthen Construction. I bought and downloaded it then and there!
If there’s ever a greenbuilding hall of fame, you should have a statue in there… well, at least a decent plaque!
