About Liquid Web
Liquid Web Founded more than 20 years ago, US-based Liquid Web has grown into a $100 million web hosting business which now manages 1.5 million sites for 45,000+ customers across its ten global data centers.
The company offers powerful managed hosting products targeted squarely at business and professional users. That means no free plans or basic shared hosting – Liquid Web is all about high performance, highly configurable cloud, managed application and dedicated server products.
If you’re used to consumer hosting providers then prices can seem high. The most basic Personal Managed WordPress plan costs $15.83 a month on the annual plan, for instance, which gets you 15GB SSD storage, 2TB bandwidth and support for a single site. And the $65.83 a month Freelance plan still only provides a 40GB storage, 3TB bandwidth and support for four sites.
Liquid Web dedicated servers come in a variety of configurations, ranging from a server with single processor, two 480GB solid-state drives (with a 1TB backup drive), 5TB of monthly data transfers, and 16GB of RAM (starting at $199 per month) to a server with high-end, dual processors with two 480GB solid-state drives (and a 4TB SATA backup drive), 8TB of monthly data transfers, and 64GB of RAM (starting at $599 per month). Clearly, Liquid Web’s dedicated servers are aimed at businesses that want sharp website performance and that have the money to spend on it.
Server Response Time
In exchange for the higher costs of business hosting, Liquid Web provides a higher grade of tech support. They’ve branded their support team as “heroic” and “the most helpful humans in hosting.” That translates into 100% uptime and as little as 59 seconds of support response time from certified technicians
With Liquid Web, the Cloud Server platform makes it effortless to upgrade by scaling it into a Dedicated Server. You will not have to migrate your data, and as long as you are staying within the same virtual server zone you will not have to change IP addresses.
