Webhosting – 9 Months Review

We purchased a dedicated server from in the end of July 2006. I’ve promised to give them a review and briefly put: everything has worked fine with the service and there really hasn’t been any major problems with them. In exchange for this review (and having banner link on my site) I’ve received a discount for the server. As with any other review on this, I will give my honest opinion & constructive criticism regarding the service.

While I haven’t been directly dealing with their support my friend (who is managing the server) said that “support has always been very good”. The server has been fast and sites load quickly. I don’t even recall any downtime. There’s always some downtime when dealing with webhosts, but our dedicated server hasn’t experienced any major (nor much even minor) downtimes.

Pretty much the only problems we have faced were with the remote backup: there were some problem with the hardware, but that was sorted. This shows how little issues there has been with them – they’ve taken care things properly.

LiquidWeb service in a nutshell
Here’s a quick list on how I’ve seen their service:

  • Powerful dedicated servers (I have no experience with their other packages)
  • Good support
  • Reliable: very good uptime
  • No major problems, any minor problems taken care fast
  • Fully managed
  • Decent price

Naturally I don’t know how well LiquidWeb’s other packages work (since I’ve only used their dedicated server package), but we’ve been very pleased with the speed, price and reliability of the dedicated server and I personally recommend their services for those who need a webhosting. Their shared hosting comes with 30-day money back guarantee, so if you want to try them you’ll have time to get your money back if you are not pleased with their service.

Don’t take my word for it – I’m the one who gets paid for writing this
I personally recommend their service as I’ve been happy with their dedicated system, but I would recommend not not just take my word for it – I recommend checking out what other people say about their service. You may find reviews from sites such as WebhostingTalk and Indiegamer.

I strongly recommend taking monthly plans (not just with LiquidWeb, but with any webhost), because that way you can check how they perform for you. Depending how their performance goes after 3-4 months, then you can either continue with them or choose another host. After the ‘initial test period’ you might consider taking a yearly plan.

Bottom line
Their dedicated server service has been great, and I warmly recommend it. Travis Stoliker has been my personal contact with them, and I’m sure if you want to ask questions from their packages, Travis can help you. If you need a reliable and fast webhosting and are going to contact, you might simply tell them that you’ve heard about their service via and would like to talk with Travis. I’m sure he can assist getting you the package that suits your need.
