Liquid Web Hosting for Websites

Liquid WebAs a domain investor, I don’t know much about web hosting or hosting companies. When I was looking to set up a Virtual Private Server (VPS) to host some of the websites I was building on my domain names, a friend of mine recommended that I try Liquid Web. He had been a happy customer of theirs, and he knew they would be helpful to me as well – and I am sure glad I use them on my geowebsites.

Liquid Web maintains a call center that is up and running 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Their technical support and customer service staff is knowledgeable, and they are always helpful when I call them with a question or a request. More often than not, my request is minor in nature, but the tech team is always willing to help me out and provide assistance. Whether I need an installation of a particular software library or a specific redirect that I can’t figure out, they’re able to help me quickly – and with very little hold time and no language issues.

For my somewhat limited web hosting needs, I use a Virtual Private Server, which costs around $50/month. What is a VPS? A VPS is a way of partitioning a server computer into multiple servers, each appearing to be its own individual machine rather than a shared server. The VPS manager can operate the system as if it was his own, while others share the same system. From what I understand, a VPS can help keep websites running faster, and they can also help with SEO because you manage what other sites run on your server.

Liquid Web also offers other options for domainers and others who want to have control of their hosting needs:

VPS Hosting (Linux & Windows)
Dedicated Hosting (Dedicated Servers)
Shared Web Hosting

There are a ton of standard and add-on features as well, including firewall, load balancing, e-commerce solutions and technology, Guardian Continuous Backup, Private Switch, Terabyte Backup, Remote KVM, and a whole lot of other features.

In over a year of working with Liquid Web, I can’t remember any down time on any of my sites. It’s good to work with a company that has great support and products.

There are other companies out there if you are looking for month to month web hosting providers for your web development needs.
