Legend has it that Eleven2 started in a coffee shop when two designers recognized a need for a hosting solution emphasizing customer service. The company’s friendly phone and chat representatives make getting started with Eleven2 a cinch, but not to be ignored are the decent prices, plan choices, and server reliability.
Eleven2 got its start in Houston, Texas in 2003. As a relative newcomer the company is still building its reputation, based partly on incorporating user opinions to help create a suite of services that people want. Currently on offer is a variety of plans from shared to Cloud, as well as a simple domain name service. With data centers distributed globally, their key to success and performance may be their solid data redundancy.
The company supports the industry standard by offering a 99.9% uptime guarantee and a 60-day money-back guarantee. Several data centers offer reliable power delivery; multiple redundant N+1 and 2N power supplies assure uninterruptable power. While the power is very consistent, servers can be a bit slow, but customers can choose their primary server based on performance statistics.
Pricing and Plans
Eleven2 employs their user-optional “CloudFlare” technology to deliver CDN (Constant Delivery Network) hosting, so your content is distributed among several data centers worldwide for optimum performance and availability. Beginners will find RVSiteBuilder and Parallels Sitebuilder two easy ways to get their sites up and running, while seasoned designers will make good use of a variety of supported programming languages, including Perl, Ruby on Rails and GD. Mobile applications for both iPhone and Android also allow users to manage their sites remotely.
The starter package for dedicated hosting is a decent bargain, beginning at $199 per month, and includes 4GB DDR2 RAM and 3TB of bandwidth. Four plans provide users with a convenient set of choices depending on their traffic needs, and all come with Eleven2’s free CDN bandwidth distributed across 20 strategically placed data center locations. All plans are fully managed and include 24/7 support, migration assistance and Eleven2’s airtight SLA.
Shared and dedicated plans both utilize the cPanel interface for easy access to all the tools you need for website navigation, from e-mail setup to billing and database management.
Eleven2 emphasizes a customer-first business approach. Their telephone techs are available around the clock and answer questions courteously and patiently, whether it is a technical issues or a suggestion for improvement. Engage in live chat or submit a remedy ticket day or night and the English-speaking tech team will be available for an answer. Open tickets are often answered within 10 to 20 minutes. Curious newcomers can open a chat window on the site and get most of their preliminary questions answered by a live representative to help make an informed decision when choosing a plan.
Some kinks may occasionally need to be worked out by Eleven2, but improvements are ongoing, and with over 100,000 customers, a state-of-the-art UPS and low prices, the company is doing lots of things right. The bottom line is that Eleven2 is for the people, and willing to build from a solid foundation that satisfies every customer.
