Bad Experience with RDO Servers
On Nov. 28, after asking why my sites were all down, I got this response from RDO:
They lost everything
No backup for Hosting
Experienced Hosting in South Carolina
RDO Servers has been providing web related services since 2009, and continues to focus on quality through till today. They started out as a web development company that created beautiful websites for their customers, but didn’t have a public hosting solution. In 2014, they opened up their hosting solutions to the public, and since then have been growing and expanding this side of their business nicely.
Their experience has allowed them to help companies and individuals from around the world build up powerful websites that are able to meet the needs of all their visitors. This company has an A+ rating with the better business bureau, and has been honored with many awards and recognition from around the web.
Uptime & Reliability
Extremely Reliable Hosting
The hosting with RDO is quite good and their equipment is enterprise grade, so you don’t have to worry about outages or other issues. They have a 100% network availability record for their dedicated servers, which also ensures the best quality on their other hosting packages. Given that they house all their equipment in a very nice data center, there is little need to worry about any reliability related issues.
Hosting Solutions for Every Need
The hosting services from RDO are quite diverse and able to meet the needs of virtually any type of customer. You can choose from Linux or Windows hosting, and find the package that has the perfect balance of power and price. They even have options for both managed and unmanaged servers as well, so you can get the support you need based on your specific situation.
For shared hosting, you can choose from three options on Linux and three on Windows. These packages start at 5 gigs of disk space and go up to 100, and then 100 gigs of bandwidth up to 5000. These are pretty standard features, and the rest of what they provide is also pretty normal for what hosting companies provide today. They do have daily offsite backups of these servers, which is a great way to help protect your data.
If you move up to a virtual private server, you will get the extra control you need. They run these servers using XEN virtualization, which allows for fully dedicated resources. You’ll find this is a much better option than many other VPS providers that actually offer pooled resources. There are five VPS options that offer you 1 to 8 CPU cores, 1 to 12 gigs of RAM, 25-250 gigs of disk space, and 500 GB to 5 TB of bandwidth. These hosting options also come with dedicated IPs for your sites.
Finally, the dedicated server options are good for those who want full control of the entire server. They only have three server options to pick from, which is somewhat limiting. The servers can have 16 or 32 gigs of RAM, either SATA or solid-state drives, and all of them run Linux. These are great servers for mid to large sites, but won’t be sufficient for the very highest levels of hosting.
Great 24/7 Tech Support
The technical support teams with this company are good, and they are very helpful. You can talk to them via email, phone, tickets, or live chat. No matter what type of issues you are having, they will get them fixed quickly. One downside to their support is that they don’t have a knowledgebase or other self-help resources to help customers avoid problems or optimize their sites.
As you look through the hosting options that RDO has to offer you will notice that the prices are pretty much in line with what you would expect to see from other hosting providers. Shared hosting solutions start at $4 per month and go up to $15. These are fair prices for the features that you are getting, and it is nice that they don’t have a ‘trial’ price that shoots up after a month. VPS hosting options start at $15 and go to $85. This is a nice range for VPS and really makes this level of hosting the most attractive of the options that are available from RDO. For dedicated servers the prices start at $99, and go up to $219.99 and $399.99 per month.
No Issues with Speed
You won’t have to worry about the speed of your hosting when you are working with RDO. They have good hardware, and reliable network connections, which will help ensure visitors will have a great experience every time. Their geographic location in South Carolina helps to further ensure visitors from throughout North America won’t have any delays in accessing sites hosted with this company.
Good Quality Hosting in South Carolina
If you want hosting that is based in South Carolina and is able to easily meet the needs of all visitors throughout North America, this is a good option to consider. While there are some minor considerations related to the number of hosting options, and their prices aren’t as low as they could be, this is overall a good hosting company that will more than meet your needs
