Tired of paying expensive monthly hosting fees to host QuickBooks?
Fed up with performance issues with your current QuickBooks hosting provider?
Worried about having YOUR QuickBooks data stored on shared servers?
Would you like to own a QuickBooks server rather than leasing one?
Building and owning your own QuickBooks hosting server is easier and more affordable than you think!
You'll need the following to build your own, secure, affordable, private QuickBooks server:
- A low profile server. Supermicro makes a great little powerful server - Supermicro SYS-E300-8D - small footprint of 10” X 8.9” X 1.7” - Approximate cost fully built out, $1300.
- Proxmox VE - Linux Hypervisor type 1 software - Cost - FREE!!! Open source, secure, and easy to install. Installs in a few minutes!!
- Windows Server Standard license - Use the one you already own, purchase one, or lease one through a Microsoft Partner. Leasing would be the least expensive route.... Ranges from $100 to $150 per month.
- Windows RDS (Remote Desktop Services) Licenses aka Remote QuickBooks Users - Leasing through a Microsoft Partner would be the least expensive. Ranges from $10 to $15 per month per user.
- Domain name with SSL certiciate - Less than $100 per year through GoDaddy.
- QuickBooks Desktop license, of course!
That's the 6 basic items you'll need to build your own QuickBooks Server. This unique server will save you thousands of dollars over a few years versus paying a hosting company. Who doesn't like to save money!! The server would reside on your local premise and can be attached to your current router if you'd like. You can self manage and install it or hire an local IT company to install and manage it for you.
