When it comes to choosing a web host there are so many options available on the market that it can be difficult and honestly frustrating to know where to begin. Many of the big-name hosting providers wow you with big commercials, celebrity spokespersons, and too good to be true offers, only to leave you high and dry when it comes to support, and frankly, level of service. I could provide some real-life statistics for uptime and performance on some of these other hosts, but I’m not interested in turning this article into a bash piece.
Needless to say, as a service provider I have to have hosting which is reliable and run by a team of experts who can quickly implement fixes in the event of problems, and provide timely and expert support in the event I have a problem. This is exactly what I found with InterServer. Originally, I contracted InterServer as a backup, or failover service for my company’s main data center after the colossal failure of our main data center provider (another big name host), which resulted in all of our services and client websites being down for days (the service was down for months!). InterServer gave me the ability to get our corporate clients back online quickly using our own backups and reestablish our web services.
I was so impressed with the quality of service that we had experienced from InterServer that I added them to my company’s shortlist of recommended providers for our clients, especially those with ASP.Net websites (InterServers ASP.Net hosting is one of the best I’ve seen). I have established hosting with them and now use them for all my internal hosted services as well as my company’s hosting needs. Some of the key features of InterServer Windows Hosting that impressed me the most include
- Weekly backups
- SSD Caching Servers
- Speed Optimized Servers
- 10GB Cisco Network
- Free Cloudflare CDN integration
- 24/7 Support which actually responds to you
- 30 Day money-back guarantee
- 25 Domains hosted per account
- Plesk control panel for web management
- 1 Click installs for popular scripts
- Only 50% server utilization – they don’t overload and overwork the servers
- 95% uptime on our services over the last 3 months – Impressive.
The amazing features and support spill over into their standard hosting (Linux/WordPress/cPanel) as well, featuring such things as unlimited Ultra SSD storage, unlimited bandwidth, unlimited domains, free SSL certificates, free website migration and more.
Being in the business for over 21 years, I was originally skeptical of InterServer simply because I had never heard of them. However, I learned a lesson very fast – sometimes the best things are the ones you’ve never heard of!
