Prices for dedicated FileMaker Server hosting

Service description

Our Dedicated Hosting packages are a cost effective and simple solution for sharing database apps on a server dedicated to your use. This environment provides the highest level of security and can be tailored to your requirements allowing you to have your own URL, SSL certificate and server plugins etc. The Standard package is a configuration which we believe will be fine for the majority of customers. For more demanding uses we offer more powerful configurations with increased cpu cores, memory and disk space. We are also happy to discuss custom configurations.

We set up the system for you and arrange backups etc. We monitor the server for you in a similar way to our service for shared servers and will substitute a clone should the system fail. We will add compatible plugins etc.

Key benefits of this package

  • Choose any connection method; FileMaker Pro, FileMaker Go or WebDirect.
  • Host up to 125 files at no extra cost.
  • We set everything up and look after the server for you.
  • Fixed monthly cost - no data transfer charges

  • Bring your own FileMaker Server licence or purchase with the package.

Pricing structure

Dedicated hosting servers each need an individual FileMaker Platform Licence which Claris only supply annually in advance. As a result there are both annual and monthly costs for dedicated hosting.

Dedicated hosting trial

Generally we do not offer a free trial of dedicated hosting because of the server licence, SSL certificate and setup required however it is worth asking as on occasions we have a new system sitting idle for a few weeks that you could try.
