Why Adweb? We have
the experience you need in FileMaker hosting,
because we use it and work with it every day! The
site is powered by the FileMaker Pro database. The
site is hosted on Power Macintosh G4 servers running
Apache on Mac OS X. We use
Lasso by Lassosoft
as the scripting/middleware method to connect our HTML pages to
FileMaker and MySQL databases.
We offer powerful,
reliable and inexpensive hosting with FileMaker

Filemaker/Lasso Hosting Support
For Filemaker 7 and 8 users, Filemaker 8 Advanced Server support with Lasso version 8.5 is available. For users of earlier Filemaker versions, we support Filemaker versions 4.0 through 6.0 and Lasso 3.6.
PHP and MySQL Hosting is also available.
Testing Your Solution
Sometimes in order to evaluate a potential new client's code and site, we have to stage a website and database on our servers to determine if it will operate as expected. There is a minimum $75 non-refundable charge for staging and testing, $25 of which is credited against the setup charge if you decide to use us as your web hosting service. You can download our credit card authorization form here.
One question we are often asked is, why do we charge per database? The reason is that Filemaker Pro only allows 100 databases to be open on one server. (Versions 4 through 6 are limited to 50 databases). Once we have 100 files open, we have to buy a new server to host additional sites. If you have a large database application and/or expect heavy traffic, it's often more economical to have a dedicated web server. We offer server co-location services. We can provide full service server installation, setup and management of your database-driven website from $300/month, depending on services required and traffic. Ask us for a quote. Leasing options for servers are available.
