Expert Overview

Quality Hosting since 1998

Ridgeon Network has been in business since 1998.  They are based in the UK and offer a variety of web services to meet the needs of their customers.  This includes traditional hosting services, online storage services, web development, IT consultation, automation and scripting services and much more.

It is important to be clear that this is not a traditional hosting provider.  They essentially operate as a virtualization company for things like business servers and data storage.  It seems that you could use them to run a normal site but that is not what they are primarily used for.

Uptime & Reliability

Always Available

This company does a good job at making sure they are always available for their customers.  This is very important as businesses use the service for offsite backup and remote processing power.  From everything I can find about this company they do an excellent job at keeping their systems available at all times.

They do own their own hardware and network connections, which gives them greater control.  This will also allow them to ensure there are no service interruptions.

Features

Business Hosting Features

You won't see normal hosting solution packages offered by this company so if that is what you're looking for, it is best to go to another service.  You can choose from what they call "FTP Hosting" or VPS hosting.  FTP hosting is basically where you just upload your files through an FTP connection so they can be stored and retrieved as you need them.

Their VPS is basically a virtual server to be used for your business.  Many companies are moving to the virtualized technologies that allow you to put multiple physical servers onto one virtual server.  This is more efficient and easier to manage.  Ridgeon is offering this type of service.

Support

Good Tech Support

The tech support team is on site with the hardware and can provide solutions quickly and easily.  They do a good job at monitoring for issues as well so they are taken care of before they ever cause an actual outage.

Pricing

Reasonable Prices

Their virtual server prices start at 67 Euro per month and go up based on the services you need. The FTP hosting starts at 171 Euro per year (15 per month) and goes up based on how much data you need to store.  The entry level package allows for 1 gig of storage and 5 gigs of transfer per month.  You can go up to 500 gigs of storage and unlimited transfer.  This highest level package is 390 Euro per month or 4446 per year.

 

Summary

Great Service if You Need it

Ridgeon Network does a great job at providing this type of hosting and remote server services.  They have been in business a long time and customers seem very happy with the level of service you get.  Just keep in mind that this is not a normal hosting service and you should be happy with what you get.
