Compucast provides Secure Dedicated Server Solutions in the cloud with backup offering Industry-Leading Core Network Infrastructure.
Compucast was honored to meet with the Director of Homeland Security, Michael Chertoff, during his visit to New Orleans to thank us for providing uninterrupted service – for extended periods of time at no charge — to many businesses during and after Katrina as one of the only New Orleans hosting companies whose sites and email addresses stayed online due to our multiple backup servers. We continue to take our commitment to our clients and their websites seriously and provide the latest in server and backup solutions:
Compucast currently hosts all of its websites on the Amazon Cloud where there is sizable compute capacity on Amazon’s proven computing environment. This provides our developers the tools to build failure-resilient applications and isolate our sites from common failure scenarios using Amazon’s proven network infrastructure and data centers. We are utilizing several additional methods of data protection including periodic data snapshots and nearly-real-time synchronization between geographically-isolated servers. These alternative servers are ready to to kick into active mode at the first sign of an issue. Due to this hosting environment with backups, Amazon's Service Level Agreement commitment is 99.95% uptime.
In addition to the above off-site backup solutions, we also back up all files on a frequent basis on two local servers. Thes backup procedures give our clients another level of protection.

CompuSTAT – Compucast’s Customized Stats Tracking - Compucast also provides a customized marketing metrics overview showcasing the number of recommendations your business has received and the actions generated by your hospitality marketing, your PPC campaign overview, hotel availability checks & reservations data, and more.
These measurement tools show how visitors interact with your site and the success of your online advertising and PPC campaigns.

Compucast provides POP3, IMAP and SMTP email service to its web clients through a corporation focusing upon email solutions (Luxsci) including webmail, forwarding, auto-replies, security, and patented spam protection and virus filtering.
We can also set up a Google Business account for you if you would prefer to use gmail (with your domain name). This will allow you to use gmail if it is your preferred email client, while allowing your email to originate and send from your domain so you can put this address on your business cards and letterhead.
In both cases, you will be able to access your email from any location, including your mobile phone, and check and send your email via desktop email clients such as Outlook and Mozilla.
Your web site’s domain name is an important part of your online identity. It is important that it be managed by professionals who will ensure it is safe, secure, and monitored.
Compucast manages the domain names of the web sites for whom it is responsible. Throughout the years, we have found this is the most efficient and secure way to not only manage our clients’ domains, but to manage their mailbox (MX) records, and renewals. This also allows us the capability of making changes across the board when backup servers may be required and changes to the zone file must be made. Our Domain Name Monitoring System sends us a daily email .. ensuring we are aware of any changes happening to any domain name at any time, including IP address changes, renewals, etc.
No worries ... you will always own your own domain name.
