Why I choose DedicatedNOW for dedicated server hosting.

You’ll see a trend here at Dave On Web Hosting. Many of the hosting companies I write about have been established since the mid to late 1990’s. DedicatedNOW was established in 1997 and has been providing dedicated server hosting and managed dedicated server hosting to thousands of small to large businesses. But you are most likely reading this post because you want to know what makes DedicatedNOW a leader in providing dedicated server and managed dedicated server hosting services. Okay, so what makes DedicatedNOW one of my top choices for dedicated server and managed dedicated server hosting?

There are multiple reasons DedicatedNOW is a top choice.

  1. Flexibility
  2. 100% uptime SLA
  3. Dynamic Support
  4. Affordability

DedicatedNOW does not charge RackSpace or Peer 1 pricing, but you get a 100% uptime SLA in addition to superior support services including Dynamic Support team and proactive monitoring. And there’s absolutely no intimidation factor involved. You can get a dedicated server fully managed based on your specific requirements. DedicatedNOW makes it easy to get started with low pricing options, ideal for those individuals, companies, and organizations that want to get started with dedicated servers.

2009 100% uptime

Recently DedicatedNOW published a 100% uptime for all of 2009. I will post more about DedicatedNOW’s 2009 100% uptime in an upcoming blog post.

Why I choose Liquid Web for dedicated server hosting.

Liquid Web has been around since 1997. I first learned about Liquid Web in 1999. At the time, they were one of the few pioneers in the hosting industry. In the early days, Liquid Web did not have reliable services. Support was not responsive and servers would go down periodically. But one thing they did have going for them, and continue to do so today, is their branding.

Whether it’s from word of mouth, site referrals, or general advertising, Liquid Web was and continues to be upfront and center for customers looking for a dedicated server or managed dedicated server solution. But you cannot rely on branding and marketing tactics alone. Liquid Web quickly realized that and decided to make some significant improvements around 2004-2005.

Since then they have built their own data centers (now up to three) and drastically improved support by introducing Heroic Support (move over Fanatical Support) and Sonar Monitoring. I’m a fan of innovative marketing and branding. And if you’ve been reading any of Dave On Web Hosting blog posts, you’ll know that one of the most important features of any web hosting company is the usability of their website. Visit Liquid Web and you’ll see all the dedicated server and managed dedicated server hosting products and services are well organized and easy to find. The site provides plenty of nicely written content to support their product and service offerings.

What is the best managed dedicated hosting company?

September 23rd, 2009

Top web hosting companies differentiate themselves by offering unique features, services, and characteristics. There isn’t just one hosting company that I consider as “the best managed dedicated hosting company.” Instead, there are several managed dedicated hosting server companies that rank high on my list.

The list of top managed dedicated hosting server companies

SingleHop

Turnkey Internet

LayeredTech

FastServers

PEER 1

DedicatedNOW

Steadfast Networks

What makes these companies worth choosing?

1. Each company brings something unique to managed dedicated server hosting including network, hardware, software, and peering technology.

2. Each company has a track record of superior services including testimonials and awards.

3. Each company does not go by price alone. Instead they focus on quality, quality hosting for customers and clients that rely on network, hardware, and server uptime.
