Hosting services for companies

Supplement your hosting solution with SSL, VPN, domains and email services

In addition to our hosting services, we also offer you a range of other services that you can use in combination with hosting or as an independent service.

Domains - from classic to unusual

We register and manage your domains and can even provide the name service as an optional extra.

denic .eu

As a member of DENIC eG, PlusServer has direct access to the German domain management system and is also an official EURid registration authority for EU domains. This guarantees short processing times and reduces the number of possible errors.

Domain management is a matter of trust - after all, a single administrative error can mean that your company cannot be reached by email or online. We manage international domains through our partner, OpenSRS.

In addition to classic top-level domains such as .de, .com, .net and .org, we also reserve “exotic” TLDs such as .ag (Antigua), .mx (Mexico) or .cc (Cocos Island). You are of course registered as the domain owner during registration.

We are also happy to help in changing provider (ChProv). We take on the name service free of charge for all PlusServer managed domains. PlusServer also supports you in managing a particularly large number of domains: through volume discounts and direct access to our domain robots.

  • OS-independent: Windows, Linux or MacOS. Management of appointments, contacts and tasks.

Using emails is simple and practical. It’s no wonder that a large amount of business correspondence is now conducted electronically.

However, operating corporate email structures is a complex task. The PlusServer product impresses with its performance and functional benefits.

PlusServer ensures daily backups, the updating of spam filters and virus scanners, as well as regular security patches, updates and extensions.

Free and protected - in your own VPN

We set up and run Virtual Private Networks for you.

IP Security Protocol

PlusServer implements VPNs on the basis of the “IP Security Protocol” standard (IPsec). They are accessible via our centrally operated, redundant VPN endpoints. Alternatively, dedicated gateways can also be set up.

Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) use existing, low-cost, but usually unsecured, internet connections as the foundation for protected networks. In this way you can achieve a high level of data security without having expensive leased lines.

Typical areas of application are secure connections between several company locations, secure access to an external hosted web platform or the connection of external service and home office employees to the intranet (“road warrior” configuration).

VPNs ensure,

  • that communication cannot be spied on by third parties and
  • that access to resources is limited to authorised employees only.

SSL certificates for sensitive data

We offer certificates from Verisign and Thawte and can also take on installation on your servers if you wish.

Verisign & Thawte

PlusServer creates your SSL certificates in collaboration with the largest international certification bodies: Verisign and Thawte. We can of course also take on installation on your web server if you wish - and notify you in good time before your certificate expires.

We recommend using SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) as soon as sensitive data is sent between the client and the server. The encryption protocol secures the communication between the webserver and the browser.

Typical fields of application include, for example, online shops or web forms into which personal information is entered. The webserver requires a SSL certificate for the encryption. Communication via SSL ensures the following two points.

  • Authentication of the server
    The website user knows they are connected to the right server.
  • Data encryption
    The data transmitted by the user, such as form entries, and the server reply are encrypted.
