The benefits of IronOrbit Hosted QuickBooks are pretty clear— IronOrbit Hosted QuickBooks is more cost-effective, accessible, secure, and easier-to-manage than on-site QuickBooks. You may still have questions about other aspects of IronOrbit Hosted QuickBooks, however (features, compatibility, cost, etc.). Hopefully, this FAQ will give you the information that you’re looking for. If you have any further questions about IronOrbit QuickBooks Hosting, contact an IronOrbit sales representative at [email protected] or (888) 753-5060.
Does IronOrbit Hosted QuickBooks have all the same features as a locally-installed desktop version of the software?
Yes. Though some web-based applications derived from desktop software—in order to reduce their processing requirements—are stripped of their most powerful and complex features, an IronOrbit Hosted QuickBooks is exactly the same as a locally-installed desktop version of QuickBooks. It won’t seem like you’re accessing your hosted QuickBooks over the Internet, either; our hosted applications perform the same as locally-installed software, and don’t have any of the slowdowns, lag, or outages that many people experience when using other web-based software.
What versions of QuickBooks does IronOrbit host?
We host ANY version of QuickBooks, including QuickBooks Pro, QuickBooks Premier, QuickBooks Enterprise, and basic QuickBooks. This includes previous versions of QuickBooks, too (QuickBooks Pro 2009, QuickBooks Premier 2010, QuickBooks Enterprise 2011, etc.).
Can I still use my QuickBooks plugins with IronOrbit QuickBooks Hosting?
Yes, we support ALL QuickBooks plugins, including favorites such as Corelytics, AgileShip, ShipGear, OneWay Commerce, ViewMyPaycheck, bMobile, and AuditMyBooks.

How much does IronOrbit QuickBooks Hosting cost?
All IronOrbit hosted solutions cost only a low, flat monthly fee. Your exact fee will depend on the version of QuickBooks that you select and how many users and how much storage you need. For a price quote, contact an IronOrbit sales representative.
What do I do with my existing QuickBooks licenses and data?
Your existing software licenses can be transferred to and be used to authorize your IronOrbit Hosted QuickBooks. If you don’t have any existing QuickBooks licenses, you can either purchase them from Intuit or rent them from us (the cost will be included in your monthly fee). Your existing QuickBooks data can also be transferred to your new hosted QuickBooks deployment. For a small fee, an IronOrbit hosting specialist can help you with the data migration process.
What devices can I use to access IronOrbit Hosted QuickBooks with?
IronOrbit Hosted QuickBooks can be accessed from any Internet-connected desktop, laptop, thin client, ultrabook, tablet, or smartphone.
Can I access hosted QuickBooks from an Apple computer?
Yes, even though we only host the Windows versions of QuickBooks, any user with a Mac OS can still access IronOrbit Hosted QuickBooks.
Is IronOrbit QuickBooks Hosting compliant with data security regulations such as PCI DSS, SOX, and GLBA?
Yes, it can be. Orbital Security (firewall, antivirus, file encryption, and Intrusion Prevention and Detection Systems) comes standard with our hosted QuickBooks. If you need to comply with a specific data security regulation, let your IronOrbit account manager know so that we can build a customized, fully-compliant version of hosted QuickBooks for you.
