Hosting with TigerTech

It’s a new year, and it’s time to get down to business. At the beginning of the year most business owners find themselves looking at where they are spending their money. It is a time for budget cuts and looking for ways to save some cash in the long run, as well as getting the processes of your business to run as smoothly as possible. I’m sure it is no different for you at this time.

One expense we all have to deal with is web hosting. In my time hosting sites I’ve probably tried all the hosting companies out there. And let’s face it, most of them sucked, which is pretty sad. Two sites that were pretty okay were Westhost and Pair, unfortunately those hosting sites experienced the “Digg Effect” and went under fairly quickly. Worst case scenario is when the hosting site shuts the entire site down. Obviously that defeats the entire purpose of a hosting company. If you’ve had this problem, and many of us have, ask yourself why you’re even paying for the service if they can’t keep your site up and running.
For a while a friend has been telling me about Tiger Tech (http://www.tigertech.net/).

That was one of the best business decisions I could have made. I did a trial with one of my sites, and when of my stories got a lot of hits I got an email form TigerTech. They said they had noticed the server was under a heavy load. The customer service tech had a ton of suggestions for me to improve performance. They even offered to do some performance based changes for me, that they thought would improve things. After giving them authorization to go through with the changes, I switched other sites over to TigerTech. Look at that customer service. I mean, when was the last time your hosting company came through for you like this?

They are also not too steep on the pocket book, and have occasional sales. For the first fifteen days of this year they were only charging $20.10 for an entire year of hosting! I apologize for not reporting the sale sooner. Maybe next year it’ll be $20.11?

So you’re probably thinking the customer service is good, the price is good, but wondering – What about the performance? I will tell you. With the sites they are hosting for me there have been absolutely no performance problems. If I had to find a complaint I’d say it’s that they only offer shared hosting. I wish they would do reseller hosting options, and have a dedicated server option also. Maybe they will do that in the future. Hopefully.

For the record, this is not a sponsored post. I’m just really confident about recommending TigerTech since I do use them for my own sites. Check them out.
