Host Excellence is considered a veteran of the industry, and is a subsidiary of Ecommerce Corporation. This company has chosen to develop its own service platforms, customer-oriented applications and features, and data center, in order to give the customer what they need to prosper in their individual business, or personal endeavors. In business since 2000, this web-host offers packages specifically tuned to each individual, based on what they find necessary to succeed in today's market.

Price Value

Host Excellence offers cheap pricing plans to help develop any kind of site you want, and features that make customizing your website a snap. They offer plans compatible with Linux/Unix, MacOS X, and Windows, all for the same price. Their plans include all of the essential features: Shopping Cart, Web Design Software, File Managers, and Anti-Spam, as well as a Real-Time Control Panel. Accompanied with guarantees like their any-time money-back, 30-day money back, price-freeze, 1-hour support response, and 99.9% uptime, these packages are made for the ultimate value of the customer. They also have the extra incentive of free setup with 2-year signup.

Reliability

Host Excellence is deemed one of the most reliable web-hosts, as they boast network features that include dual Cisco 12008 GRP routers connected to dual OC-192 fiber running from two opposite directions, different fiber providers including BellSouth, Kentucky Data Link and Energy Net channeled through multiple Central Office (COs) and Point-of-Presence (POPs). They also have locations in different cities and states that are connected to several different carriers including Qwest Communications, MCI, Telecentrex and AT&T. All of their servers are premium Intel machines, either Dell PowerEdge or Supermicro Serversdesigned that run 24/7, optimized for performance, cooling and space. They utilize RAID disk redundancy, a 24/7 SysAdmin staff, proprietary Linux kernels, early-warning Denial of Service Attack (DoS) detection features, hack-resistant servers and network equipment. They are proud to say that their services are among the most secure in the industry.

Control Panel

Host Excellence has been able to develop a unique control panel for their hosting sites. The Real-Time control panel is easy to use, and provides clear and concise management of your website. The software is one of the best available in the market, but it is not one of the most popular programs that customers may be used to (such as Plesk, Ensim, or CPanel).

Customer Support

Host Excellence offers three ways in which to solve any problems you may have with their service. First, 24/7 live phone can be reached at a specified number. Second, 24/7 live chat can be enabled to gain a more personal touch. Finally, email is the way to go if you need answers, but don't feel that sense of urgency inflicted by larger problems.
