I have been using Hivelocity for around 6 months now and have been a very happy customer. I am pretty picky when it comes to hosting providers.

Hivelocity has delivered on all three of these.

They were able to quickly provision my system from their easy to use portal, and support was very responsive when I had questions about hardware provisioning as well as for other networking related issues. I am also very happy that they provide native IPv6 to my systems which is another primary requirement for my systems. The network performance has been fantastic, and the fact that they have a presence at 1 Wilshire in LA is also another huge bonus for me.

I've hosted with Hivelocity for about a year, with a dedicated server in their NYC1 location. I also use their RapidRestore backup server and briefly hosted a server in their LAX location for a temporary need. Overall, I've been e...Read Morextremely satisfied with the level of service and support I've received from them. They're very responsive to support tickets and I have experienced zero equipment or network downtime. The one time I really needed them was when I made a serious misconfiguration to a production server and needed a full restore from backup. They were extremely responsive and had me up and running in under two hours despite the issue occurring on a Saturday afternoon. The only area I've marked them down is their pricing - I could get the same equipment for less elsewhere, but it wouldn't come with the reliability and support that Hivelocity provides. I'm hosting sites for clients who are paying me - it simply isn't it worth it to cut corners for a few dollars of savings and risk downtime. You can't wrong with HV if you need dedicated servers.Less

Expert Overview

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.

Features

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

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
