“24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days an year, we’re always open”- Andy Johnson, eleven2

With a gazillion web hosting companies out there claiming 99% uptime, unlimited resources, and knowledgeable support; cutting through jargon and making an informed decision of choosing the right web host can be a herculean task. I choose the word ‘right’ and not ‘perfect’ because the kind of web host best suited for you depends, among various other factors, on your business and the type of website you want to host. And this, I believe is a factor which makes Eleven2 stand out. They’re a great choice for just about any business and any type of website. There are companies who specialize in low-price shared hosting, and are suitable for personal or very small business websites with low traffic. And there are companies who specialize in dedicated & VPS hostin...

“We intend to build full-featured IT infrastructure solutions for SMBs”-Sergey Nevstruev, Anturis

Small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) are growing, and with this growth, they’re changing the way they use technology to run their businesses. However, with their purse strings drawn tight and not having a clear roadmap of IT implementation, SMBs generally invest in IT in a phased manner. The problem manifolds for them as thе present market only offers solutions that are either expensive and bloated or open-source with a great need for fine-tuning and customizing. With limited knowledge of technology and their budgets tight, none of the options seem feasible for SMBs. This is where a product like Anturis comes in. Promising features at par with enterprise-level IT monitoring softwares, without the exorbitant prices that generally accompany them, Anturis sounds like a pretty solid ...

“We don’t want to simply be a monthly bill to our customers”-Steve Eschweiler, Hivelocity

“Support is great, hardware is great, network is great, speed is great and for dedicated servers the price is pretty darn good for the total package of quality.”- says this online review by techjr on a web hosting forum. “I believe what sums Hivelocity up best is what happened when we outgrew our server setup and asked for advice on an upgrade. Rather than try to sell us a more expensive package like most companies would do, we got techs assigned to us who went through, extensively, optimization procedures to try to get even more out of our current server without costing us a penny,” -says another one by Iain. A cursory glance on the web shows unanimous praise for Hivelocity′s service not only on their website but also on on discussion forums well outside their cont...
