"In particle physics, a kaon is any group of four mesons characterized by a quantum number called "strangeness."
I am a graduate student in Texas getting my Ph.D. in Chemistry. My research focus is on mass spectrometry method developments and instrumentation. This requires me to be up-to-date on the latest computational and statistical software. I and 2 years into a 4 year program with two peer-reviewed publications on ant-venom protein localization and MALDI-MS analysis of metal binding with alpha-synuclein protein.
I work full-time at the university as the IT department manager and programmer for the Chemistry Department. I built the main website, manage scheduling software, perform sensitive data back-ups, encrypt data, rescue data, clone harddrives and babysit cranky, old computers that struggle to do the jobs scientists ask of them. Through this, I learn quite a bit and share that knowledge between my hosting here and my hosting at the unviersity.
My favorite tv show ever is The Office. I will quote it. This is your public service announcement.
. Do you provide domain names?
No, in order for you to feel in control of your website at all times, you purchase and manage your own domain name. I highly recommend NameCheap for their prices and their WhoIS protection! If you don't want to buy a domain name yet, I provide free "yourname.kaonshosting.com".
. How long does it take to get started?
I check my email and discord from 9 am to 12 am CST, and I can get your cpanel, software and domain set up in an hour! If you are transferring from another host, you will need to allow up to 48 hours for DNS to propagate to my server.
. Will you install MyBB/Wordpress/Chevereto for me?
Yes! If you tell me what you want when we discuss your options, I will automatically install the lastest version of the software along with common and popular plugins. (MyBB - account switcher, prostats, threadlog, etc.). Additional installs, theme installs, etc are done free if you need help.
. Will you upgrade for me?
Yes! I will upgrade your PHP version and MyBB version for free. However, if you have custom code, you will need to be sure that the code author is able to write fixes. I can and will fix what I can, but custom plugins will have to be adjusted by the author.
. I can get hosting from "x", why should I go with you?
It's true there are hosting options out there for less than what I charge, but it's pretty crappy service. When you price match, be sure to look at how they are limiting you. For example, MyBB forums use nearly 100 GB of bandwidth per month! Common, cheap hosting limits bandwidth, diskspace, databases and does NOT offer free SSL certificates. In addition, you are paying for my help, a great community, my kickass server, and you are helping a poor grad student.
. Will you help me move from my current host?
Gladly! I am well versed in transferring cpanels and migrating websites. It'll be painless!
. Do you backup in case of emergencies?
Yes, I automatically backup the server ever-other-day to amazon S3. It's part of what you pay for!
. How can I pay you?
Currently, I only take paypal and I invoice every 1 month, 6 months or 1 year.
