I wanted to take a quick moment and talk to
you about getting your FileMaker database or your copy of FM Starting Point set up professionally
on a FileMaker server. First off, professionals here at RC Consulting can help you get off
on the right foot by getting you set up on a properly configured FileMaker server. Now,
there are a number of options to choose from; based upon the size and location of your team
of users, we can help you choose the best server setup for your particular situation.
You can rent space on an existing FileMaker server that’s already running on a data center
on the internet. This is frequently the most cost-effective solution. In this situation,
you’re using a slice of an existing FileMaker server that’s already running on the internet.
You and your team can access your own database with your own security codes and passwords
that no one else will have, complete with encryption and 24-hour backup support, starting
at about 50 dollars a month. Now that’s a good solution if you have a distributed team
with users that are in different locations, or that are out on the road. If all your users
are located in one office, and they typically don’t travel very much, you might want to
consider a FileMaker server that is located on your local area network in your office.
In that situation, the professionals at RC Consulting can help you get set up, and get
that server configured for you, properly, to ensure that your server is running, with
backups enabled, encryption, and security enabled, as needed. The cost for these services
depends on your needs, so contact us today for a quote. As a bonus, we do offer a referral
program, so as a FileMaker user, if you let your business associates or friends know that
we offer hosting services, if they become a paying customer or host their databases
with us, we’ll give you a free month of hosting on one of our services. Again, if you have
questions about hosting or your particular needs, contact us today at [email protected]
