10 Years of Outstanding Service

I discovered LiquidWeb back in 2006 via a web hosting forum, and I have never had to consider another hosting service ever since. I have had a dedicated Windows server with them and during all these years of service I only recall ...Read Moretwo network outages that were of any consequence.

Their Heroic Support team truly lives up to the name. The response time to any form of support (phone, email, or ticket) exceeds expectations every time. I host several websites for internal use and their expertise has never been lacking during any support requests. I even switched to a new server once (for updated hardware and operating system) and needed all my existing resources migrated to the new server. The entire process was handled without any issues or setbacks. These guys know their stuff.

Their active monitoring system has also detected and fixed problems without me even knowing there was an issue. LiquidWeb is my first and pretty much only recommendation for any form of hosting, be it dedicated, shared or VPN, Windows or Linux. The account management system is also very well thought out and easy to navigate, and displays a wealth of information. I have had several opportunities to compare some competing services and none have come close especially in cost-to-value comparisons.

This is where service quality and product/hardware quality both get a 10/10 from me.

Looking forward to maintaining another decade of excellent service from LiquidWeb.

It would be hard to find a better support team than at LiquidWeb

I have been running our web design business since 2001 and have been around the block many times with various web hosts. The big names we've used include LiquidWeb, WPengine, SiteGround, GoDaddy, BlueHost, GoDaddy, Hostgator, 1and...Read More1, and some other smaller ones.

LiquidWeb is always the perfect 10 in every category. We currently have 1 Windows server and 2 Linux servers. Over the years we've had dedicated and VPS accounts. Their support is always, and I mean always top-notch. They answer the phone fast, they work trouble tickets fast, and their best-effort support always goes way beyond what many others will try.

I rank LiquidWeb ahead of WPengine for two reasons. First price, but if you use WPengine, you understand why they are a little on the high side. And WPengine is specialized only for WordPress, no email. If you only want to host a WordPress site and you don't mind spending the money, then look at WPengine because their support is on par with LiquidWeb.

LiquidWeb's support is US-based. SiteGround does also make a good effort at support... most times. Their non-US based support handles English just fine. Their systems are indeed fast. Not a fan of their control panels. SiteGround lost me as a customer when I learned my new server's IP was blacklisted with AOL email. And they put it on me to resolve. This wasn't from any of my customer's spamming. It was a new IP assigned to me. LiquidWeb support said this would never happen with them and would always do whatever they could to resolve a situation like that, even something as simple as assigning a new IP to the new server.

The rest in my list don't even come close to support help, system reliability or speed.

Bottom line, it doesn't cost that much to pay for quality service and support. Put your website into the hands of LiquidWeb. You'll never have to consider another web host again.

Liquidweb “Dedicated Cloud”

I have been using Liquidweb for my server for a few years now, following bad experiences with other services that claimed to have three “separate” backbone connections (all going through one router!), 24/7 service that had no clue...Read More, etc. They have superb service, have gotten increasingly reliable over the years — every increasingly-rare failure results in new and better equipment configurations — and have improved their lineup. I switched from a pure dedicated server to a “cloud” setup, which is essentially running a virtual image on a dedicated server, like using your PC for nothing but running VMWare, and then running Windows or whatever under VMWare (or running Fusion on a Mac and then running the MacOS on that). The advantage is you can take full disk images or move from server to server in an hour, without fussing with software, while normally you'd have to use the CPanel transfer and then redo your base software.

I have a shared hosting account as well for a couple of sites. That has been more reliable than any shared hosting I can remember. It costs more than most but you get what you pay for, sometimes.

My rating on “price” is based on value.

Liquid Web Expert Review

Liquid Web is one of the higher-end web hosting services available today, with a reputation for flexibility and variety. With approximately 30,000 customers around the globe, the company has spent the last 20 years building its specialized web hosting empire. Our tests set out to discover whether the company’s relatively high prices yielded extraordinary hosting solutions.

We found that Liquid Web’s selection of feature-rich plans and flexibility they give you truly set them apart from competitors. Additionally, the customizability these plans offer, combined with near-instantaneous load times and highly reliable uptimes, position Liquid Web as one of the leading choices for medium and large businesses.

Pros and Cons


  • Get help when you need it from knowledgeable support staff 24/7/365 through live chat, phone and email.
  • Keep costumers satisfied and shopping with incredibly fast load times and close to zero service disturbances.
  • Make security a premium with Cloudflare CDN, DDoS attack prevention, and integrated firewalls.
  • Migrate and scale with ease with the help of customer service experts.
  • Create stunning WordPress websites with the help of a staging site and automatic WordPress maintenance.
  • Deploy Liquid Web’s custom-built server clusters for complex website needs.


  • The company no longer offers shared web services.
  • As a niche hosting company, prices fall on the more expensive end of the spectrum.
  • Although their knowledge base is extensive, the tone is geared towards web professionals and may be less useful to beginner website owners.

Pricing and Payment Methods

Liquid Web has a broad selection of plans that fit a great variety of businesses and specific web needs. Their basic managed WooCommerce plan, Beginner, starts at $39 a month and includes a several e-commerce must-haves like the drag-and-drop Beaver Builder website builder, SSL certificates and mobile optimization.

Each WooCommerce plan also comes with simple promotion scheduling tools and Abandoned Cart by Jilt. The company’s WordPress packages start with a basic plan at $99 a month, which offers staging sites, automatic daily backups and a host of development tools.

Their managed Cloud VPS plans start at $59 monthly and give developers a plethora of customization options including cPanel of Plesk Onyx control panels and root access alongside robust security features. You can also apply to resell Liquid Web services, and existing hosting clients that want to turn reseller receive free tools and revenue-based discounts.

Our takeaway from the pricing is that although Liquid Web is an unabashedly exclusive hosting option, businesses that can afford the prices get a lot of value in return. The plentiful features, optimal security conditions and insightful support staff are well worth the investment, and customers that opt for managed plans are leaving their backend in expert hands.

Ease of Use

For the most part, we found it very easy to use the different Liquid Web hosting services we tested. Though beginners with the right amount of capital can get a lot out of Liquid Web’s managed solutions, the products really target larger companies with more advanced web needs. Nevertheless, the company’s intuitive Beaver Builder website builder and the automatic daily backups and updates management that come with WordPress plans, can let beginners go about their business without worrying about their website’s behind-the-scenes.

With multiple websites to maintain and higher web traffic, however, mid-range and enterprise level businesses might have an even stronger sense of how simple it is to use Liquid Web’s more advanced features. Moreover, the company’s knowledge base empowers the web proficient to grow into web savvy users.

Load Times and Reliability

Our tests showed that Liquid Web performs admirably when it comes to uptimes. As always, we tested the average amount of time the hosting service experienced downtime over a period of several months. Our tests revealed that the company’s uptimes were consistently over 99.9%, making Liquid Web an extremely reliable web hosting service and way ahead of the industry-average 99.4%. In our tests, Liquid Web’s load times were approximately 500ms, and sometimes dipped as low as 400ms. Liquid Web charges for its deluxe services, and you would be hard-pressed to find more reliable uptimes or near-instantaneous load times.


The upside of opting for a more expensive hosting service like Liquid Web is that each plan is feature-rich. Even the most basic WordPress plan, for example, offers staging sites and automatic daily backups. Similarly, the basic WooCommerce package provides a drop-and-drag website builder, Abandoned Cart by Jilt and an exclusive platform for enhanced load times. More advanced controls are also available, and developers can take advantage of features like root access, free Git repositories and SSH to fully customize their business’ backend, and cPanel or Plesk Onyx control panels.

At the end of the day, we found that Liquid Web is unique in its attention to detail and customization. If you’re not finding all of the features you want or if you’re looking for more complicated hosting solution you can working with their developers to create the backend of your dreams.

Customer Support

Liquid Web’s customer support was definitely among the top teams we’ve encountered in our reviews. Response times on the three support channels they offer – phone, live chat, and email – were consistently within the guaranteed hour, and often under a minute. Each and every agent we spoke to was friendly, knowledgeable, and able to wrap up most of our issues very quickly. It’s worth noting, however, that some more complex support services, such as personalized account reviews or solutions architects’ solutions, are only available with the enterprise plan.

We were also pleased with Liquid Web’s knowledge base, which featured hundreds of articles and tutorials, as well as a dedicated section on common fixes. However, the content and the support tools offered seem to have been written with webmasters in mind, and beginners may find them too technical to be actually useful.

User Reviews

Our team reviews each and every hosting service in-depth to give you an expert take on the service. Browse our user reviews to get a comprehensive view of how Liquid Web stacks up against the competition.


We entered the evaluation process for Liquid Web in the knowledge that their solutions aren’t cheap and with an expectation that their products would be superior to what their competition is offering for less. On the whole, Liquid Web was able to meet and sometimes even exceed our expectations. Their platform makes it easy for beginners to get started with features like the Beaver Builder website builder in the ecommerce plans, or staging sites in WordPress plans that lets them experiment before going live. With all plans, newcomers have access to stellar customer service that can guide them through whatever issues they’re experiencing.

At the same time, advanced functionalities like root access and GIT repositories give you the flexibility to create your own developer environment. As most of Liquid Web’s plans are managed, their own developers do a lot of the routine maintenance and beyond, leaving your IT team with more time to focus on innovation.

No matter what your familiarity with web hosting, we found that Liquid Web truly does deliver an above-average experience. Free SSL certificates with most plans, automatic daily backups and WordPress updates push Liquid Web toward the top of the web hosting pack.
