...So why us?
A few comparisons
RealmDomain vs. godaddy
Godaddy is one of the better registrars out there, however the hosting plans are incredibly limited and restrictive. This makes even some of the simplest things such as php mail very difficult if not impossible. Their economy plans are priced the same as ours however we also provide a lot more for the dollar. We don't limit bandwidth or storage space as long as it pertains to your site. Dollar for dollar we are the best choice for hosting.
RealmDomain vs. BlueHost
BlueHost offers a one size fits all plan initial price 6.95/mo. However price at renewal is 9.95/mo. they don't advertise this but if you are a customer you know this is the truth. Our 6.95/mo. plan at RealmDomain is very similar to BlueHost, we however DO NOT charge more at renewal time because we already have you.
RealmDomain vs. SiteGround
SiteGround also charges more at renewal then they do at signup, similar to BlueHost and frankly many many other hosts. Beyond this to add-on a Domain it is a USD 30.00/yr. charge per domain to be added on. Their accounts usually initialize at 4.95-6.95 depending on the day, but they all renew at 9.95/mo.
Quality Hardware And Data Center
It is essential that in today's web hosting environment that a web hosting company purchases high quality servers. Server requirements vary radically in a number of areas including disk space, processor speed and connectivity capabilities. Some companies purchase servers with low requirements in some or all of the essential areas, tiny-host does not. We purchase robust energy efficient servers with Intel Dual Quad Core Xeon processors, 8GB ram, Large Raid 10 storage arrays for maximum performance & redundancy along with 100 Mbps connectivity to our switches.
In addition our servers are housed in a world class co-location data facility with raised floors, dual city power grid feeds with backup power generators. The facility boasts an FM 200 fire suppression system with early pre-fire detection mechanisms. The facility is staffed by administrators and security personnel 24x7x365, including biometric and key card security systems with a rack level locking mechanism.
Pro-active & Reactive Server Monitoring
Server monitoring is an essential part of what we do to proactively ensure that any potential problems on any of our servers are addressed quickly before issues arise. We have a 10 second monitoring system on every one of our servers and the services that run on them, such as HTTPD, MySQL, EXIM (Mail) and other critical services. This allows our system administrators to be notified of a failure within 10 seconds, which results in a quick resolution time to any service interruptions that may occur.
On top of our reactive 10 second server/service monitoring, we're proactively monitoring the servers health in real-time. This serves as our early warning system which allows our system administrators to quickly identify problems and temporarily kill any processes that could potentially cause extended periods of downtime. If an abusive client or script is identified as causing repeated load spikes on the server that is affecting service, the clients account is suspended until we are able to work directly with the client to resolve the issue. Clients who are identified as abusers are removed.
In the event that a server has a catastrophic failure, tiny-host has a complete backup all of our clients' web site data. In the event that we determine that a server has an unrecoverable system failure, we can quickly provision those clients onto a new standby server at a moments notice.
Our uptime guarantee and how we maintain our servers.
Server uptime is of great importance to our company. We understand that this is essential for our clients and we take uptime very seriously. Our robust hardware and world class data facility as well as the lower amount of clients we have on a server and our pro-active/reactive service monitoring permits us to run at absolute efficiency and maintain our great service record. In the event that a hardware failure is beyond recoverable we have backups of our clients' data and we are able to get their web sites back up quickly and efficiently.
