HostRocket: Independent Host Continues to Defy Odds
HostRocket is a NY-based privately owned web hosting company.
It’s been around since 1999 at the height of the technology boom. Unlike most of its peers, its funding has come from the owners themselves and not from investors. This gave it the freedom to make decisions that would be beneficial for the business itself whereas others were being pushed to squeeze out every ounce of profit for their funders. More than a decade on, it continues to grow steadily, enjoy a good financial position, and remain debt-free. Those who are interested in signing up for an account with the company can choose from the following offerings:
Basic Shared Hosting
Every webhost has something for the masses and this firm is no exception. Its basic shared hosting plan is the ideal solution for people who are thinking of creating their own personal site. Small businesses can also make use of it to gain more exposure for their brand without having to reach too deep into their pockets. Like most packages in this category, customers can look forward to unlimited storage, bandwidth, websites, and email accounts. It is far from being the cheapest in the industry but going for long-term contracts can substantially reduce spending. Monthly plans go for $11.98 per month while biennial plans go for half the price at only $5.99 per month.
SSD Shared Hosting
This can be considered as an upgrade from the HostRocket basic plan discussed above. Accounts are hosted using advanced servers with SSD technology for storage. These have better speed, reliability and efficiency compared to regular disk drives. Avail of the biennial contracts to save on costs. The SSD Premium package comes with 5 GB storage and 200 GB bandwidth for $9.98/month. SSD Professional bumps things up a notch to 20 GB storage and 300 GB bandwidth for $13.98/month.
