As I said before in my previous post, the title of this series is a little bit dramatic but it is true to some extent. There are a lot of extraordinary web hosting companies available for choosing if you know where to look. Don't only rely on the first page list of the top 10 web hosting companies when you make a Google search. If you do then you'll be missing out on some great deals and services from awesome web hosting providers just because you didn't look harder.
To make it easier, I'll be introducing you to three web hosting providers that don't usually come up on a Google search with the keywords such as "best web hosting", "UK hosting", "best web hosting USA" and other similar terms. In the first part of the series I had introduce Vidahost, an excellent UK based web hosting company. They are awesome and I am hosting my new blog there as well.
In this post, I'll be introducing you to a cool US based web hosting company. They have been in business for about nine years now. Initially before opening up my new blog with Vidahost, this web hosting provider was as well put into the list of my considerations. The features that they offer are amazing, affordable and not to forget astoundingly reliable. They are Eleven2.
One feature that is unique which is provided by Eleven2 is their e2Panel which is based from cPanel. The difference is that the e2Panel is much more sleeker than the regular cPanel. The customized control panel also allows Eleven2 clients to administer their own account much smoother as the customized control panel is built with Eleven2 clients in mind.
Technical support is available 24/7 as all web hosting providers should be. Their technical support reviews are excellent according to reviews that I've found at a popular web hosting forum.
If you have been to their website and looked at the features provided at the page, you will not see Cron Job available. No need to fret, Cron Job is actually available in every web hosting package that they offer. This was highlighted by a friend of mine. He needed Cron Job to be available but couldn't find it in the features list. I made a quick Google search at found out the above.
Another benefit that you'll receive by choosing Eleven2 as your host is that you'll receive a free Content Delivery Network (CDN) service with your hosting. They are working together with CloudFlare in giving you a free CDN service. Having CDN from CloudFlare will help you boost your sites speed as loading of static contents, which are cached in servers all around the world, will be blazingly fast. You will also get an added advantage of making your site more secure as CloudFlare has the technology to monitor and prevent attacks to your site.
If you're looking to transfer your site to Eleven2 then do not worry, the migration will be handled by Eleven2 FOC. If you are reaching towards the end of your hosting and had lots of problems with the previous host then you should move your site to Eleven2 and experience better quality web hosting.
One more beneficial point with picking up Eleven2 Web Hosting as your host is that you'll have the choice of hosting your site in the US or Europe and recently in Asia as well. Depending on where your top visitors are from, this could be a factor to consider as picking the right location you can serve your main visitors better.
As you can see there are a lot of benefits when choosing Eleven2 as your host and there are still a lot more that you find out by exploring Eleven2.
Oh yes one more thing, if you are thinking of buying a hosting at Eleven2 there is a hidden coupon worth 30% located somewhere at the website. Now I won't spoil the fun but I'll give you a hint, "Look Down!". Good luck in getting the coupon.
