They don't care about their loyal customers

Best dedicated server company I have ever used.

Service used: Dedicated Server
I have used numerous companies for dedicated servers, and Hivelocity has always been the one I have gone back to. Their pricing and support have been unbeatable for me. I do not use any managed services, I manage my Linux servers ...Read More

Don't fall for it

Took more than 6 times the quoted amount of time to setup a server. When I asked on the status of the setup my ticket was simply forwarded to Billing with the response that they wouldn't be in until the next day. It is now 2 days ...Read More

Let me start by telling you I am sorry for your experience. We are typically able to deploy any of several thousand server configurations within 4 hours. It sounds like we fell far short of our average deployment time with you. ...Read More

High end hosting with exceptional reliability

Hivelocity is a hosting company that focuses all their efforts on meeting the needs of their high end customers. They are operated out of their N+1 data center in Tampa, Florida where they have been doing business since 2001.  They have multiple dedicated server configurations to choose from, as well as some cloud hosting options that will provide you with even higher uptime.

They also offer custom built servers or clusters to meet your specific needs.  The data center that they own is highly secured with redundancy built into the power and circuit connections.  This helps to ensure they remain one of the most stable hosting companies around.

In addition to normal hosting they also offer cloud storage and colocation services to companies who need them, whether or not they are using their web hosting packages.

Uptime & Reliability

100% uptime for network and power since 2011

Uptime and reliability is one of the biggest selling points for this company.  They market the fact that they have not had any network or power outages that impacted their customers sine 2011, which is extremely impressive.  This is all thanks to the fully redundant network connections and the high end diesel power generators.  They keep four days worth of fuel on site at all times, and in the event of a long term commercial power outage, they can bring in additional fuel to keep power up indefinitely.

Everything you'll need for high end hosting

If you're lookign to host a large site or corporate page, you will get everything you need from the different packages that are offered.  They also have a skilled customer service team to help identify what services you will need and help you to make a smart choice for initial setup (if you want their help).

One fun feature that they have is that you can watch them perform the initial setup of your servers through a live web-cam feature.  Some clients just find this interesting, and others will like the fact that they can see the quality setup from beginning to end.

If you need cloud storage or colocation services, these features are also avaialble for anyone who needs. them.

Support

Great support services 24/7

In the event you run into any problems you can reach out to one of the skilled on-site technicians for assistance.  They are staffed 24/7/365 and can be reached through live chat, phone or their own ticketing system.

In addition, they offer a lot of walk-through articles, videos and other self-help perks that you can use.

Pricing

Compare
8

Pricing shouldn't be an issue for target customers

The packages are expensive, there is no denying that.  The fact is, however, that you are getting a great deal based on what you are getting. For the target customers of this hosting company the most important thing is going to be reliability and service, and that all costs money.

Of course, if you're just setting up a personal web page, this is not a company you'll even want to consider.  For high end sites or corporations, you really won't find many hosting providers that can meet these services.

Summary

Excellent hosting for high end customers

Anyone who is looking for hosting for a large site of any type will want to take a close look at this company. They have been providing exceptional services to their niche audience for many years, and have a very strong reputation for excellence.

Pros:

  • Custom servers available
  • Impeccable uptime and reliability
  • Great support available
  • Servers housed in high end data center

Cons:

  • Prices are out of reach for some customers
