Out of date service with ridiculous long contracts

Service used: Cloud - Windows 2012 Standard
My company has been using Peer1 for our website hosting. We just decided to switch to Amazon where we created a much better system for 40% less. At Amazon we don't have any long term contracts and only pay for the service that we ...Read More

Vancouver Data center went down, still no explanation

Service used: Dedicated Server
On March 11 2017 the entire Cogeco Vancouver data center went down for 90 minutes. There was (and still is) no explanation and no communication from Cogeco during this downtime. Unacceptable.

Went downhill fast

Service used: Dedicated Server
After years of service, the last year or so has been an obvious downward slide. Nobody answers live chat, average phone hold time is an hour if you can even get so lucky for someone to answer, and after a long waiting period email...Read More

Entire Atlanta datacenter down for 5 hours due to loss of power!

Service used: Dedicated Server
All my sites were shut down due to their power loss in Atlanta datacenter for over 5 hours! I think thousands of sites were going down with mine and I lost $5000 (and they gave me $200 for compensation). Their service is really ba...Read More

Rapidly Declining, STAY AWAY

Service used: Dedicated Server
We've been with this company for a LONG time. Things were slowly going downhill with every buyout but now it is in free fall. Prices have been skyrocketing while support has been plummeting. Features that have always been there ar...Read More

Seems you are old school person that got everything free without having your own IT staff and want them to cover your support cost without having IT. Get a greep!

Not even close. I take all calls and do all work. I simply want the services I pay for to work and when I ask for support, I expect to get it.

Excellent for Co-Location Services

Service used: Cloud
Let me start off by saying that this hosting company is not for most people. You don't want to use them for a normal blog or startup site. If you operate a very large site or a corporate webpage that you want to ensure has excelle...Read More

I am very happy with their hosting

Service used: Cloud
If you can get past the price tag, you will be very happy with this company. They are obviously targeting the very high end hosting market, and they are doing it well. I have my company's website on their servers and it just works...Read More

Years of Experience

Cogeco Peer 1 has been in business since 1999.  They market the company as more than just a hosting solution. They want to partner with those who need high quality hosting and any other web based services. They have a great tech team and offer state of the art colocation services to many companies that need that extra confidence that their site won't go down.

They manage websites for over 10,000 businesses and help them with eCommerce and much more.  Peer 1 is owned by Cogeco, which gives them the stability that many companies will appreciate when looking for hosting.

Obviously this is not a hosting company for a small personal blog or even a small business.  It is, however, a great solution for mid to large sized businesses that need a great hosting experience and more.

Uptime & Reliability

Exceptionally Stable

One of the main points of working with Cogeco Peer 1 is that they will provide you with a stable hosting environment.  While they don't have the typical '99.9% uptime' guarantee or anything like that, the stability will actually be far better.  This is because whenever using cloud or colocation services, stability is built in to ensure customers are always up and running.

Customized Services

As you look through their site you will see that they have customized solutions for lots of different needs.  They offer managed hosting that will help take the responsibility of keeping a site up and running smoothly off of your business so you can focus on what you're doing.  They also break their services down further for differnet types of industries.  If you need a managed hosting experience for your app or online game, for example, they have just what you need.

They also have cloud based 'on demand' hosting that is a great option for companies that need the extra support to keep their site up and running at all times.  This is a nice way to add stability and features, without having to bring on your own tech team to handle it.

One of their biggest features is their colocation services.  Colocation services allow you to have your site hosted at multiple locations to prevent outages.  This also helps your site to load quickly for customers no matter where they are.   Cogeco Peer 1 can help get this set up and in place for your company so you can better serve customers.

Support

9.5

High quality Tech Support

You're essentially buying a great tech support team when you use this company.  They will be responsible for all the hardware and network support, of course.  In addition, depending on what services you select, they can also help you with managing your site and other services.

Pricing

Compare
8

Custom Pricing Packages

As with any high end service, they will customize the price just for you.  They will work with you to determine just what you need and then put together a proposal.  This isn't a traditional hosting company where you just click a few buttons to get everything up and going. Cogeco Peer 1 Hosting is a business partner that you will want to develop a long term relationship with.

Of course, the prices are going to be higher than what you would expect for a traditional site, but so are the services.  If you're running a large corporation and need hosting support, reach out to Cogeco Peer 1 to see what they can offer you.

Summary

Nice Option for High End Hosting Needs

If you're looking for high end hosting for your mid to large sized business, this is a good option to consider.  They have been in the industry for years and have done a great job at keeping their business updated and innovative.

Pros:

  • Extremely Stable
  • Focused on What You Need
  • Been in Business since 1999

Cons:

  • Only right for a specific type of customer (larger businesses)
