What does it mean when some body says " We have our own data center"

Big on Hosting. Unlimited Space & Unlimited Bandwidth

48-14 there is no such things as a good “under the radar” host. It’s not possible. If their service is good word of mouth alone will skyrocket their business and they will become popular. Those types of hosts are good while they are small, but once they start getting a larger market share that level of service drops because they either can’t keep up with the volume or they have to hire more staff which increases costs, which either increases the end cost to the customer or requires massive overselling or any number of things that will take that host down.

Between myself, my two partners and the rest of our staff we have 30+ years in dealing with webhosting/servers (not actually being hosts, we don’t do that sort of thing) but fact is every hosting/server company tends to start out good and fizzle out unless they learn how to charge a decent price to keep up their level of service.

You really do, literally, get what you pay for. If you want the cheaper prices you have to sacrifice something in return, either uptime, quick support or something. There is no middle ground there, less money means less expensive equipment and bandwidth or less staff or staff that may not have enough knowledge to actually help you.

There’s always something sacrificed in those cases. That is why it’s important to research any company you want to do business with. Find out what, if any, real issues there are and then make up your own mind if that’s something you can live with. If not, up your budget and find a better host.
