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 Morelater and they still haven't responded. Don't give them a penny, ridiculous.Less

Steve Eschweiler,
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 Our Billing and Sales Dept handle the on boarding of new customers, however, each of those departments shuts down by 7pm EST. It sounds like you talked to our 24/7 Tech Support Dept after hours and they passed the buck. I am sorry for your frustration. We deploy hundreds of new servers every month and your experience is not the norm. I will make sure we do better going forward. Less

Your order probly felt into fraud verification process. First order always rough, as there are so many fraud purchases out there. But after that everything will be just like instantly.

Best dedicated server company I have ever used.

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 Moremyself. A few years ago I was running websites for a TV show on the SyFy channel and we had a drive die. I do my own backups from the server. They replaced the drive, restored everything.

Every server I have gotten from Hivelocity has always been deployed on time. I don't know what the review about it taking 6 times longer than they quoted... anytime you request a custom server, it takes time... and you always sit around impatiently... but all of the times I have ordered from Hivelocity have gone as expected. They kept me updated, and this last time even sent me a photo of my server in the rack with a sign pointing to it.

The only complaint I have about them is the price of the 8TB helium filled drives...but those are expensive to begin with.

I absolutely love the web-based virtual power switch. If something goes wrong, I can hard-power down the server. If I can't get to it still, I have IPMI.

Moved from SoftLayer

They don't care about their loyal customers

Hivelocity used to be good. They had a great a customer service and support, but now they lost it. I am a long time user of their services and its quality is now longer good. I moved from SoftLayer to Hivelocity many years ago. I ...Read Morewas used to a first class service at SoftLayer and at that time Hivelocity didn't disappoint me. They price was just right and my account manager was always in touch with me. They even had a lifetime affiliate program which made bring some customers along with me. Now their support simply doesn't care anymore. The "lifetime" affiliate program has come to an end and they refuse to pay me the money I am entitled to receive. If you are considering Hivelocity, please look somewhere else. They are not who they used to be anymore...Less

I’m very happy with Hivelocity, both the server and the support

I was at A Small Orange for about 10 years until it was sold and then sold again. It went from hosting I was extremely happy with to a total disaster.

I have found a new home for my sites and have no plans to leave. Just don’t sell the company!

Expert Overview

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.


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 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.


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.
