SOUTH BEND, Ind. – HostColor.com (HC) has launched a Fully Managed Cloud Infrastructure service plans delivered from its Midwest U.S. data center, based out of South Bend, Indiana. The Managed plans are available with all Public, Private and Hybrid Clouds.

HC Managed Clouds include initial setup; installation of Windows or Linux based operating system; antivirus and anti-spam protection; configuration of the Public or a Private Cloud environment to the client’s custom settings; regular maintenance and updates of all software programs and applications; 24/7/365 resource monitoring; security updates; system reboots, cloud instance recovery; data backups.


The Managed Public Cloud Servers are used for hosting of websites, mail servers and various software applications accessible via public Internet connection.

The Managed Hosted Private Clouds are configured on demand to support certain workloads that organizations need to move to “the cloud”. They are not visible over the public Internet. The Private Clouds are secure computing instances created for internal use and organizations operate them behind firewalls and access them through virtual private networks.

“Managed Clouds means that we provide technical support from A to Z, from planning and setting up any Cloud instance to backing it up and recovering it whenever necessary”, says the company’s CEO and founder Dimitar Avramov. “In terms of quality the Host Color’s Cloud Infrastructure services match those of the ‘Major Clouds’. However, unlike them we don’t charge for technical support on our Unmanaged Cloud service plans. The infrastructure support is included and is always 24/7”, adds the Host Color’s CEO.

All Clouds – Public, Private and Hybrid ones – are provisioned and hosted on top of the Host Color’s Cloud Computing infrastructure built with VMware ESXi – arguably the world’s most reliable virtualization technology, used by organizations that need to have an IT infrastructure with 100% availability. The HC clients’ data is hosted on a Storage Area Network (SAN), which features built-in protection and safeguards the information under any circumstances without performance impact.

HC has been an IT infrastructure and Web Hosting service provider since 2000. The company operates a South Bend, Indiana based physical IT Colocation center and Virtual Date Center since 2003.

About WordPress
WordPress started in 2003 with a single bit of code to enhance the typography of everyday writing and with fewer users than you can count on your fingers and toes. Since then it has grown to be the largest self-hosted blogging tool in the world, used on millions of sites and seen by tens of millions of people every day. WordPress started as just a blogging system, but has evolved to be used as a full content management system and so much more through the use of thousands of plugins, widgets and themes. WordPress is limited only by your imagination.

LOS ANGELES, CA – DreamHost®, a global leader in web hosting and Managed WordPress services, is pleased to announce its commitment to the principles outlined in a “Contract for the Web” created by the inventor of the world wide web, Sir Tim Berners-Lee.

The full text of the contract, designed to hold governments, companies, and citizens of the world to keeping the internet accessible and safe to all while minimizing misinformation and human indignity, is slated to be complete in May 2019. By that time fully half of the world’s population is expected to have access to the internet. Berners-Lee and his World Wide Web Foundation are currently asking governments, companies, and individuals to commit to the contracts’ outlined principles.


“When we first learned of the ‘Contract for the Web,’ signing on in support of its principles was imperative,” said Brett Dunst, DreamHost’s vice president of corporate communications. “These principles represent views and practices that have been ingrained in DreamHost’s culture since our earliest days. DreamHost has always been passionate about an Open Web that values safety, privacy, and accessibility — that’s what this contract is fighting for.”

Joining entities like Google, Facebook, and Cloudflare, DreamHost is one of the first in the Managed WordPress world to sign on in support of the “Contract for the Web’s” principles. In the future, Berners-Lee and his World Wide Web Foundation are hopeful that the contract’s principles could eventually be adopted by the United Nations or the G7. The contract is sponsored and promoted as a part of the Foundation’s “For the Web” campaign.

“Supporting a free and open web just makes sense. Something as powerful as the web requires constant protection, and this contract represents a strong step in that direction. Providing affordable access, respect for personal information, and embracing empowering technologies…these are not unreasonable or difficult things to offer. These principles ensure that the web will continue to work for humanity, not against it,” said Dunst. “The internet is our present and our future, and DreamHost will always do its part in ensuring it’s open and safe for all users.”

The principles can be found on https://contractfortheweb.org/ where internet users are being encouraged to sign on behalf of themselves and their businesses.
