Superb Internet - Web Hosting & Dedicated Servers: A Glimpse


Superb Internet was founded on 1996 by a then 16-year old Haralds Jass. From humble beginnings, the company which was created due to hosting servers' common problems those days, grew to over 400 servers by the year 1999. Their history is quite remarkable. But what we're going to see this time is its present state. Will they pass this review?

You might be asking, how would I make a review of a web hosting site if I haven't tried it myself?

Before answering that question, I'll mention that Superb isn't just a web hosting company. They have a flexible product line and a wide range of services.

Web Hosting

I noticed that they are using a platform called GridIron® which they exclusively developed to adapt to most of their clients' needs, one of them is unlimited traffic. Almost all of their hosting services will let you host your site with unlimited traffic. No problem if your traffic got tripled in a short time - this should be a good news, not something you should worry about. They offer web hosting in Linux and Windows for as low as $4.99/month.

>> Cool Feature:


They have this what they call the Superbly Magical Domain Name Creator. Wonder what it does? It's a wonder for me, too. It just generates cool names. E.g., I typed gianfaye, it'll suggest you something like dumb-gianfaye.net or gianfaye-Yeti.net. Seriously. But kiddings aside, if you open a shared web hosting account with them, you'll get a free domain with your account.

Managed Hosting

These are for large sites and businesses. For operating systems, the available are: Red Hat Linux, Cent OS, and Windows. Every Managed Hosting Account has 5 features (they call it 5-in-1™) which are as follows:

  • Managed Backup
  • Managed Firewall
  • OS Hardening
  • Patches and Updates
  • Proactive Monitoring

>> Cool Feature:


You can own your server in 12 months. It's what you call RoI (Return of Investment), baby! This Lease-to-Own program will only cost you an additional of $25/month and you can own your own server after a year. That's one hell of a big savings for your business.

Colocation

If you own your own server, you have to keep it in an excellent condition and a safe place - all the time. Their Colocation services lets you worry no more about your server's maintenance and keeping. For $99/month, they'll assure you of:

  • Security. It is one of the most important things about the state of your server. Is it both physically and virtually secure?
  • Temperature. Of course, servers are physical things. They are machines. They get damaged if they are overheated. A well-ventilated place with proper humidity is a must for your servers.
  • Power. If you host your servers on your home and there is a power disrupt, say a tornado passed through your hometown *knocks on wood*, will you let your website (and business) be affected by the storm, too?
  • Location. Their servers are located at Seattle, Washington - the original hub of the Internet they say. Nuff said.

This is just a glimpse of what Superb Internet can offer.
Will they offer superb services also? That's for you to decide.

Superb Internet is a product/service of Superb Internet Corp. Visit www.superb.net for more info.
