Shopping at Liquid Web
Liquid Web is a Lansing, Michigan based web hosting services provider that has been around since 1997. As of 2011, Liquid Web has grown to 300 employees and in that same year received the INC. 5000 Fastest Growing Companies Award.
Liquid Web provides Dedicated Servers, VPS, Shared Hosting, and other services as well. Here, we take a look at their Shared Expert Web Hosting Standard Plan, a good place to start for any creative entrepreneur.
For $14.95/mo you get:
-5GB of Disk Space – An effectively unlimited amount for beginners, but an amount that may need to be increased as your business grows.
-120GB Transfer Bandwidth – Once again, more than enough for those who are just starting out but perhaps not quite enough for more advanced users.
-2 Free Domain Names – Which is exactly 1 more domain than most web hosting companies provide in their most basic package, and which means that you can pursue multiple web-based, entrepreneurial efforts at once.
-Unlimited Email Accounts – An important part of any modern business that wants to maintain effective communication between employees.
-Unlimited MySQL Databases – Giving you the ability to completely control the structure of your website, no matter its level of complexity.
- Liquid Web’s Heroic Support – A team of dedicated, on-site support techs available 24/7/365.
All in all, Liquid Web offers a pretty standard and affordable shared web hosting package. The only potential qualms one might have with the package are the limits it places on Storage Space and Bandwidth; however, Liquid Web’s reputation for excellent service and growth, which, furthermore, both enable users to upgrade service whenever they may please, still makes Liquid Web a quality web host worth its weight in digital gold.
