In 2013 they began expanding globally and grew extremely rapidly. It was during this time that they put more of an emphasis on web hosting services.

Uptime & Reliability
Very Good Hosting
The reliability with this company is extremely good. They offer a 100% uptime guarantee so if you do have any outages you can get credit on your bill. The hardware they use for their servers is all very nice as well, which limits the risk of any downtime. They lease space in data centers rather than owning them, which does give up some level of control. The data centers they are in, however, are all very nice so there should not be anything to worry about.
Lots of Nice Features
The company has a variety of hosting services available for individuals and businesses around the world. Their shared hosting comes with cPanel in each of their three packages. All the packages have unlimited disk space and bandwidth. You can also have unlimited sub-domains and main domains (with the exception of the starter package, which can only have one main domain). They have shared IPs for the entry level and mid level packages and a dedicated IP for the enterprise option.
If you choose to move up to the VPS solutions you’ll have to choose from one of four packages. Depending on the package you get you’ll have between 1 and 12 gigs of ram and 1 to 4 CPUs. You can also get anywhere from 15 to 200 gigs of disk space in a RAID 10 configuration. For an extra $5 per month you can upgrade to SSDs.
There are plenty of dedicated servers you can select from. You can pick which base server you want and then it can be further customized from there. They have 12 models to choose from so you’re sure to get what you want. You can also select from a number of different operating systems, management options and more.
Limited Info on Tech Support
They don’t provide very much information about the tech support services they provide on their website. From what I can find they are staffed 24/7 and able to help with most any type of issue. When looking at their social media accounts and other reviews it is clear that customers are happy with the level of support they get.
I did not see any FAQ or knowledge base on their site so you aren’t likely to get any self-help type of assistance with this company.
Reasonable Pricing Options
The pricing with this company is in line with what you’d expect to see with other hosting providers today. The shared hosting service starts at $6.99 per month and goes up to $11.49. If you choose to pay semi-annually, annually, bi-annually or once every three years you can get some very significant discounts.
When you move up to VPS solutions the prices start at $15.49 and go up to $97.49 per month. They only offer discounts on annual payment options with this level of service. The prices in this level are quite good when you look at the level of hardware they offer.
Dedicated servers start at $43 and go up to $699 per month. The hardware in the servers gets significantly better the higher the price goes. In addition, there are quite a few customization that you can select with your dedicated server and some of these may cost extra.
Nice Hosting with Nice Prices
The hosting from Tier.net is quite good. They have been in business for a long time and clearly know what they are doing when it comes to serving customers. This is also a growing company so the level of service will likely continue to go up over time.
I've been with Tier.net since 2018 and highly recommend them!
Prior to switching to Tier.Net in 2018, I was with a big name provider. I have literally saved several hundred dollars a year by switching my VPS to them and when I did, they transferred all of my data at no charge! They have always been extremely courteous and helpful any time I have needed them for anything. I'm not a tech expert by any means, but with them you don't need to be. Highly recommended! 10+
Some of the best network speeds and personalized support!
I have a dedicated server, VPS and colocated Dell R620 with these guys. I have been a client for a year or so and I have been very impressed. I enjoy their 10Gbps connection and Jacob and Evan have always been super welcoming to me. I have yet to speak with someone who doesn't speak English as their first language and they have chat support. I have only needed to contact support once or twice and every time I have needed them, they have either been there in a chat or responding to me within 10 minutes of a ticket. Thank you guys for EVERYTHING that you do!!!! Here's to many more years to come!
Tier.net is your one go to for all web hosting needs
Found these guys on webhostingtalk over two years ago, their live chat is truly 24/7 and I was super impressed by that (wait time less than 1 minute). They seem to be on top of things and very eager to help. It has been over 28 months now and so far nothing short of excellent. Value added at a great cost. This is your one go to for all web service needs.
I just wanted to give my review of this company which I was with for about 1 year and 6 months. During this time i experienced numerous downtime. Their support was never able to figure out my downtime issues. They were like robots when talking with them. Their owner Evan has horrible customer service skills and their set up and migration was very bad as many errors occurred. I would never recommend them to anyone. I was fooled by their cheaper prices and regret that. There are many more companies I would rather recommend. They would be last on my list. For proof of my time with them please do not hesitate so I can prove it.
Dan Y 's website was suspended due to complaints of child pornography, a serious violation of our TOS. Dan Y, who provided us with an address in China, operates a web cam/ chat site for "ages 13 and up" with adult cam options right next to "kids chat." His site has no age verification system in place. Simply put, the site is intentionally designed to attract pedophiles and is not welcome on our network.
Since my last review that I wanted to share was declined yet it was my review, I am going to say it again this company has been great and I am glad I switched away from inmotion hosting as they are basically still learning how to run servers and manage their network. I had more reboots and restarts than ever and I never had that with my current server unless it's a cPanel update. Yet again this is a great company and this is a legit review of the company.
