I have been hosting websites for over a decade now. Over time I have seen so many companies come and go. I have received recommendations from friends to join Hostgator amongst one of the many companies out there. I have also seen web hosting companies pop up throughout the last 10 years that have either gone out of business. I have remained loyal to Lunarpages and I would like to explain why in this Lunarpages review.
Who are Lunarpages?
The company has been in business since 1998.
Why do I like them?
Lunarpages has been in the business of web hosting for a very long time now. They have a team of technicians onsite that are extremely competent and knowledgeable in all facets of web hosting. All too often these days you will discover that web hosting companies outsource large proportions of their support leaving us in the dark.
What are their facilities like?
In this Lunarpages review I decided to add some more context by doing a little research about the company and I was frankly blown away to learn that Lunarpages actually own and operate their own data centers! That is almost unheard of. They have their own facilities in California, Arizona and Nevada.
How many staff members work there? What is customer service like?
I am unaware of how many people work at the company however I am aware that they have over 100 support staff. In the last 10 years I can honestly say that Lunarpages is renowned for its customer service experience. You don’t have to worry about being placed on hold to a non english speaking person. Their support staff know what they are doing! They are highly competent and technical. To date, I have never had a bad customer support experience with them. This is important especially if you are running multiple websites.
How do their web hosting prices compare to competitors?
As I was writing this Lunarpages review, I was pleased to discover their prices are extremely comparable to other providers. Honestly they are equally as cheap as most other providers out there. They provide all the same features that you would expect in hosting that includes unlimited plans and all the bells and whistles that go with hosting your site. Even their basic hosting plan comes with a free domain.
They have been around since 1998 now so they host loads of different websites. They are actually hosting approximately 150,000 domains. They are not the largest provider out there but I think this is what makes them stand out from the rest. A lot of hosting providers cram thousands of sites onto their servers. Lunarpages keep the servers running immaculately by not over utilising servers and cramming people on there. Speed and reliability is fantastic – or at least it has been for me from day 1!
This isn’t the longest Lunarpages review you will find, but it doesn’t need to be. I have used Lunarpages for over a decade now and I have experienced reliability, knowledgeable and superior customer support and a rock solid environment that has kept my websites up and running. I would recommend them to any business or person wanting to host a site.
