HostDime employs two state-of-the-art server monitoring suites, Synapse and Axon, to keep a watchful eye on your server.
The hosting industry is as popular as ever and is growing each day with new, independent start-ups looking to be the next big web hosting provider. Unfortunately, many entrepreneurs do not have the start-up capital to purchase loads of dedicated servers to re-purpose as shared servers or reseller machines. In most cases, businesses start out on a shared reseller platform and scale up the tiers of hosting as their business grows or as their clients’ needs increase.
Whether you are considering being a web host for the first time or switching from another host, questions always arise about working with your new web hosting provider. Here we have compiled a list of the most frequently asked questions that the HostDime Sales team receives before someone signs up.
In the web hosting industry, customer satisfaction is the number one priority. This extends not only to the initial purchase, but also to the protection of our customers and their servers, applications, and information. HostDime.com, Inc. fashioned an elite team to handle such challenges. The company’s Abuse and Security division is the first line of defense when protecting customers from vicious malware and malicious users.
