Dedicated server provider, Hivelocity, has been named Best Unix Dedicated Host by DedicatedServerDir.com for April 2009. This is the third hosting award Hivelocity has received in 3 months for its dedicated servers.

DedicatedServerDir collects thousands of votes each month on a range of hosting services. Each month a winner is announced based on the sum of votes in each category. In February of this year Hivelocity achieved the Best Windows Dedicated Host at WebHostDir and was voted a Top 25 overall host by Tophosts in March. In addition to the numerous awards Hivelocity has racked up this year, they were also named Web Host Magazine’s Editor’s Choice for Best Dedicated Host in 2008. Hivelocity attributes its recent run on awards to its focus on customer service and value. “Too many of our competitors have forgotten what it means to be a service oriented business. In many ways computers have made it easy to forget personal service and customer care. With email, tweets and chat some companies may never even speak to their customers. We at Hivelocity believe you can be a leader in cutting edge technology and still make customer service paramount. When a customer or potential customer deals with a Hivelocity representative, we want them to feel like they are a guest at a five-star hotel,” says General Manager Steve Eschweiler.

Since its inception in 2001, Hivelocity has earned a reputation for being one of the best values in the dedicated hosting sector. With Core2Duo dedicated servers starting at $75, Core2Quads at $99 and Quad-Core Xeon dedicated servers starting at $165 they seem to have some of the most competitive pricing around. Considering Hivelocity uses SuperMicro hardware and boasts a 99.98% uptime track record over the last 3 years (stats by Webhostingstuff)while maintaining this great pricing point, these awards seem to be very well deserved.
