In response to customers’ ever growing online needs, industry leader Hostway Corporation has doubled the amount of disk space and email accounts in its Web hosting plans. The free service upgrade is automatic and will give all current and future shared hosting customers more powerful tools to create robust, successful websites.
According to Hostway, Due to significant growth in the use of multi-media content, Web sites need more disk space. Also, as websites stay up longer, files are added to customers’ websites, making it vital to have disk space for future growth. This expansion from Hostway is to free customers from worrying about running out of disk space on their Web site.
Hostway made significant investments to upgrade its hosting infrastructure to provide this solution. In order to handle the extra data without sacrificing speed and reliability, Hostway implemented an EMC (R) NS700 system that can handle 34 Terabytes of data. The system is designed to scale beyond 34 Terabytes of data in the future. As part of the upgrade, the centralized data backup system’s capability was tripled to continue to provide daily data backup service, essential for businesses, without any impact to the performance of customers’ websites.
“We’ve heard from customers time and again that a hassle-free web hosting experience is paramount. While many companies claim to truly value their customers, we felt it was important to substantiate our claim by listening to our customers and solving a specific need,” said John Lee, Vice President of Marketing for Hostway. “We’re committed to constantly rolling out product and service innovations that will make establishing and maintaining Web presence easier than ever. Also, when we roll out these innovations, our existing customers can take advantage of them without having to pay extra.”
Earlier this summer, Hostway doubled the bandwidth available for all shared hosting customers, also at no cost to customers. Hostway instituted these improvements in response to a customer need — more services with less hassle.
