Nice Regional Hosting & IT Services Company
US Next is a US based IT company that is quite small compared to many of the other hosting providers, but they still do an excellent job meeting the needs of their customers. They have been in business for 13 years and currently have 800 clients spread out over 24 US states. While they do offer nice hosting, their main business seems to be website and app development. They also provide SEO work, intranet development, consultation and more.
Their key to success is that they provide you with real one on one support. They have more than 30 developers available to help their customers to get exactly what they need. For such a small hosting company, they do have very nice facilities out of which they operate. The data center is state of the art and they offer daily backups to help ensure there is no extended downtime.
Uptime & Reliability
Very Reliable Hosting
The hosting does seem to be very reliable. They have a very nice data center and the hardware they use is nice, if not the fastest. They also have backups available to help minimize any outages. When looking through what other users have been saying about this company it is clear that they offer a stable hosting environment to their customers.
Nice Hosting Options
You can choose from either full service hosting or self-service hosting with this company, which gives you some nice options. Their shared hosting comes in three full service options, none of which are too impressive for the price. You can have 100, 200 or 500 megs of disk space. This is enough for basic sites but not too much if you're looking to grow. Their offsite backup service is also an additional $9.95 per month, making this quite a bit more expensive than other hosting companies. The self service solutions are actually run by SecureServern.et and are better priced but still not the best I've seen.
Dedicated servers are available, but here to the features aren't as good as the prices would suggest. You can choose from either a dual or quad core CPU, 2, 4 or 6 gigs of RAM and either 1, 2 or 45 500 gig hard drives. The prices are higher than you would expect, and they also charge a setup fee on top of the monthly fee.
Good Technical Support Teams
This company is known by their customers for having fast and friendly technical support services. They do a great job at responding to customer issues quickly and helping them to solve whatever problems they may be having. As far as hosting support goes, you won't have any trouble with this company.
The prices for managed shared hosting start around $30 (more if you want remote backup) and go up from there. For what you're getting this is far more than what you should pay. Dedicated servers have either a $295 (Linux) or $595 (Windows) setup fee, which is way more than other companies charge (which is typically free). Then the monthly payment is $99.95-$299.95. Again, for the level of hardware you are getting, these prices are way too high.
Nice but Expensive
While this company does have a lot going for them, they are too overpriced to make them attractive as just a hosting company. If you are using their other services such as development or intranet design it may be worth it just to keep everything with one provider. Other than that, however, you will be able to find a better level of service at a lower price without any trouble.
