At Hostropolis, we like to do things a
little different. That's why you won't find the typical in-your-face
flashing banners urging you to "act now for a special deal!" on our
home page. Instead, we'd like to tell you a little bit about us.
Hostropolis is the brainchild of two
experienced and successful entrepreneurs. Combined, our partners have over 35
years experience in building and managing successful high tech
companies. We are private, profitable and well-funded.
Our business philosophy is simple: run
the most reliable and professional webhosting platform possible. We go
the "extra mile" to ensure that we keep our customers happy. At Hostropolis, we put quality of service before quantity of customers.
Before Hostropolis ever served it's first
web page, we worked behind the scenes for months to create the most
reliable, stable, and customizable platform to host web sites. Our
management system was written entirely in-house allowing maximum
flexibility for ourselves and our customers.
We are big fans of open source software
and use the very secure & reliable Linux operating system with Apache
web server software.
Our servers are housed in a world class temperature and humidity controlled data
center which is equipped with waterless fire suppression and diesel
generators with UPS standby systems. Our Internet connectivity is
provided by multiple Tier 1 providers and total network capacity it over
100Gb/sec. In non-technical terms, that's enough bandwidth to
transfer the contents of an entire DVD in a fraction of a second.
Most people are not aware that web
hosting companies frequently do not supply their own services. Many web
hosting companies merely repackage, markup, and resell another company’s
service. Hostropolis’ service is just ours and conversely we do not
wholesale our services to any third parties for further reselling. This
is a very important and often overlooked feature. If you are with
Hostropolis, and you need help or have questions, you are in contact
with the actual service provider and not a middleman.
If you are looking for a secure and
stable home for a personal or business website, you've found it! Whether
you are coming from a previous hosting company or setting up your first
site, we can assist you with the details.
