2009 Editor's Pick

CoolHandle web hosting is the winner of the Hosting-Review 2009 Editor's Pick Award.

Disclosure: As is the case with many other industry/topic specific magazines, websites and trade publications, we do receive compensation from some of the companies whose products we review within and outside of the web hosting industry, including, but not limited to, paid advertising placements, referral fees, contextual advertising links and sponsorship packages.

The Cool Handle hosting team has been working together since 2001 to introduce and surpass a new standard in web hosting. The result is a comprehensive program of feature-rich services, an extensive product mix and rock solid reliability. Cool Handle has steadily attracted a growing number of loyal users.

Based in Los Angeles, California, CoolHandle Hosting offers web-hosting solutions for both Windows and Linux operating systems. With a commitment to professional web hosting, Cool Handle will meet the needs of even the most demanding clients. For the site on the move, Cool Handle hosting also offers dedicated servers, virtual private servers and reseller hosting options.

Coolhandle.com offers a wide array of features and takes pride in supporting both the latest software and old favorites, including Perl, Ruby on Rails, Python, PHP5, FrontPage, Fanastico (with 52 free scripts) and more. CoolHandle hosting packages come with full multi-media support and e-commerce capabilities. Whatever your plans for your site, Cool Handle will help you meet them.

The Cool Handle value-priced Starter plan will meet most customers' needs, with unlimited storage space and disk space. Those who require more power can sign on for the Business or Pro-level plan, both of which are still remarkably affordable.
