We Manage IT Differently

Our slogan is "We Manage IT Differently." And we mean it.

Our slogan stems from our commitment to always finding better ways to manage small business web hosting services and solutions for our clients. There are many things about managed dedicated hosting that are not broken, so we don't try to reinvent the wheel. Instead we focus in areas of managed web site hosting that have traditionally been neglected.

  1. Our internal structure gives our clients direct access to our top talent and a personal account executive guarantees communication whenever you have any questions or concerns regarding your dedicated hosting service.

  2. Our flexible managed web hosting service allows clients to select, and pay for only the web hosting services that they need and pay for nothing that they do not need.

  3. Our refusal to outsource support, and overall commitment to provide the best web hosting service possible has been recognized by industry experts and our customers alike.

In everything we do, we try to do it better. When buying servers, for example, we make sure that they are manufactured using environmentally friendly processes and that when they are powered on, they use (on average) 30% less electricity. Data Centers and servers use 1/5th the world's electrical supply. In reducing our power use, we are also reducing our long term expense for power. By reducing our costs, we are able to pass the savings of our dedicated servers and small business dedicated web hosting services on to our clients.
