Good Guys of Hosting – Hivelocity

Next up in our series of good guys in the hosting industry is Hivelocity – and they certainly deserve it.
Hivelocity has been working hard for 10+ years now and it doesn’t take a genius to understand that they’ve learned to master the dedicated hosting segment. People working here know what they do and they are proud to represent their quality products. Hivelocity truly is one of the good guys of web hosting. Just take a look at the user reviews on our site if you don’t believe us

-Can you please give a short presentation of yourself

My name is Drew Adams and I am the Sales Manager at Hivelocity.  Over the years I have helped thousands of organizations decide on the best hosting solution for their specific needs.  I also guide our sales team to always providing the best experience possible for our new and existing customers.

-What sets your company apart from other providers?

Hivelocity has a focus on customer service like no other company in their industry.  We as hosts, are so immersed in servers, trouble tickets, email and so many other impersonal day to day duties, it’s very easy to forget we are in a service industry and going out of our way to make our customers feel important and cared for is still very important.

At Hivelocity we not only provide state-of-the-art hosting solutions in a brand new state-of-the-art data center, we make it a point to get to know our customers, their businesses and growth strategies.  We make it a point to reach out to them constantly to ensure we are doing everything we can to provide them with the best possible solution for their ever evolving needs.  We have always tried to liken the Hivelocity experience to the feeling one gets when they check into a 5 star resort.  We want our customers to know from the first minute they deal with us that they are going to be cared for and well taken care of.

-Who is your typical customer?

This is a tough one to answer since we deal with such a diverse clientele.  We have customers from over 100 countries worldwide, each of them doing one of a thousand things with their servers.  If I had to answer this in a nutshell, a typical customer would be a medium sized business with a serious need for a reliable online presence.

-What do you think about the future of web hosting/trends in web hosting?

Obviously the biggest trend is virtualization and cloud hosting.  Everyone wants to be in a cloud, even if they don’t quite know what it means, they just know they want one.  The cloud is kind of like an Ipad, you just want one.

– Finally, if you had to pick one song to represent your company – what song would that be?

We try to keep a very positive and energetic attitude here so I would say “Everything is going to be alright” by Bob Marley.

Rapid Restore

Backup your entire server’s data every night and have access to 5 days of rolling restore points.  Restore your server’s data, OS and configuration any time you need it.

Our Rapid Restore service saves the day during accidental data loss, hardware failures and virus contraction. Simply pick your recovery point and restore the data from that day. 

DDoS Protection

While our competitors may advertise DDoS protection, most often, they are merely implementing easily evaded router rules or simply black-holing targeted servers. They consider this “DDoS protecting their network.” However, neither of these solutions should give comfort to any online business. Should your site be attacked, chances are likely both of these options will end with your server being taken offline. At Hivelocity, we take the responsibility of keeping your servers online very seriously. For this reason, we offer two very serious forms of DDoS protection.

FREE

Every solution we provide includes our Filtering Edge of Network System (FENS). FENS is a series of proprietary systems that proactively monitors and protects the entire Hivelocity Network from most common Denial of Service (DOS) and Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks.

$15/MONTH PER SERVER

For an extra fee, you can enhance your server’s protection further with the addition of our Server Defense System. Our Server Defense System sits in front of your server, inspecting inbound data and looking for malicious traffic. The moment an attack is detected, it instantly begins scrubbing each data packet. Hivelocity’s Server Defense System delivers business continuity even in the face of massive and complex attacks.

Our Server Defense System is like adding an alarm and armed guard to your business, alerting you to and destroying anything attempting to jump that fence. Our Server Defense System utilizes internally developed proprietary systems in addition to Corero’s Threat Defense Smartwalls for data packet scrubbing. Each of our data centers is a scrubbing center with Corero Smartwalls on-premise, allowing us to provide on-prem zero-lag data scrubbing.

SSL Certificates

The security of your online commerce and protecting your customers’ data is as important to us as it is to you. When your customers see the green bar, they will know their connection to you is protected. We offer single domain, multi-domain, and wild-card certificates.

We offer industry leading 128-bit encryption certificates, allowing you to conduct e-commerce with complete security. Inspire confidence in your customers by displaying any number of seals and indicators certifying that your site is secure.

Load Balancing

Adding this service to two servers with identical content will allow you to distribute your load evenly across your hardware. Don’t lose business because you couldn’t handle the demand. Load balance and handle your biggest resource spikes with ease.

Firewalls

Stop attacks, prevent unauthorized access, and achieve regulatory compliance. Our Juniper hardware firewalls offload the work so your server never has to consume resources protecting itself from malicious traffic. A single firewall can be used to protect multiple servers.

Cloud Storage

Cloud storage offers users redundancy and easy accessibility, ensuring your data remains secure and readily available. Scale to as much as you need for only a 20¢/GB.

Cloud Storage is distributed and replicated across many servers, protecting your data from hardware failure. Highly scalable, it can handle thousands of client connections via TCP/IP. Connect to your virtual drive with SFTP, FTP, and SSHMount and in the future NFS and AFP. Cloud Storage is based on a stackable design which is upgradeable up to 2TB per instance.
