Do you have dedicated web hosting solutions to handle large forms of traffic, like HUGE ones based on new product launches, etc, in tune of like 10,000+ in the first hour or so ?
Yes, we have dedicated servers. Please open a ticket with our sales team with your Server Needs and we will give you a free quote.
Does the original registration term length have a weighted effect on the hosted sites perceived value to the search engines? Example: If I were to pay for hosting month to month vs. registering for a year upfront, could that play a part in the hosted sites rankings ?
As far as the sites ranking, your billing cycle for the hosting has nothing to do with it.
I have just signed up. Currently, I cannot seem to use FileZilla to upload files to my server. Is this a connection issue ?
The reason you could not FTP was because your IP range was blocked by the FTP firewall on the server you're being hosted. All we need from you is the IP you're connecting from so we can clear it with the datacenter's firewall.Please note...
Is there a performance difference between the different hosting packages (i.e., do WP sites run faster on one package than the other) or is the only difference truly capacity (how many sites, etc.) ?
There is no performance difference in between accounts, the only difference is that you are only allowed 10 domains for Startup and there are no limits on the Business Plan.
What city are your main servers and your backup servers located in ?
Chicago, IL United States of America. Our backups are made via r1Soft backup services, and they are stored on separate servers, still in Chicago. This is all handled by the datacenter. They are very good at what they do, hosting millions...
Would it make sense for me to start on the Startup Plan, but if I manage to somehow make a success of my latest Internet project, then is it fairly easy to switch to the Business Plan ?
Yes it is very easy to upgrade to a Business Plan. Click Here After this, choose your current hosting plan, and click on the edit icon on the right hand side. Then choose the "Upgrade/Downgrade Package" option at the bottom of the page....
Would like to have each account on a separate server. I'm basically looking for 3 different IP addresses.
Yes, we can set up your 3 different accounts on 3 different servers. I would like to mention that we can provide a dedicated IP for only $19.99 a YEAR... that may be something you will be interested in as your business grows.
