With over 100,000 websites and in four locations worldwide, eleven2 hosting is slowly becoming a host to reckon with. Started in 2003, the company has a global network in 4 locations in Singapore, London, and Texas. They have made their name as an affordable hosting company for small to large business.

The company was founded by Rodney Giles who was interested in creating a web hosting company that was more concerned about the quality of service than the profits it made. In the beginning it was viewed as one of the most reliable hosting companies by web masters worldwide.

The company offers a wide range of products from shared hosting to dedicated servers that are affordable to any business.

Infrastructure, reliability, support and user experience

Eleven2.com made a name for extremely reliable services that are feature packed and with affordable pricing. The major contributor to this is that fact that it has data centers located worldwide. One of the biggest challenges for web site owners is the slow speeds due to the distance from their main clients and their data centers. With data centers located in the US and Europe, one can choose the one closest to their consumers.

Lightening speeds also relies heavily on a redundant network and power. The company is one of the most reliable in its class and has won numerous awards because of this. This is further enhanced by the fact that they offer free daily backups to all hosting accounts. Something that a lot of web masters appreciate only after something goes wrong with their websites.

This is what should be but recent reviews online show that there is a problem with their uptimes especially in their London servers. The company has shown effort in resolving these issues but a lot of customers complain of constant downtimes and slow responses to tickets.

Other features of their network include:

  • Redundant power supply
  • Redundant Fiber paths
  • SAS70 Type 2 Certification
  • IFC Routing Optimization
  • 100% Cisco Networking gear
  • Premium Bandwidth Carriers

 

Eleven2 advantages

  • 60 day trial period
  • Lots of hosting options
  • Affordable hosting packages

 

Eleven2 disadvantages

  • Constant downtimes
  • Restrictions to types of files on their websites
  • Support can be a lot better

 

Overall Eleven2 Review

Eleven2 hosting is one of those companies that started very well in the web hosting world but slowly started losing out to more reliable service providers. A lot of these problems can be traced back to their customer support. It is one of the few hosting sites that seem to have a challenge when it comes to answering support issues with their clients.

More worrying is the fine print in their terms concerning the types of files allowed on their servers. They only allow backup files, audio, video, zip files and other such files at their discretion. This unfortunately removes a lot of web masters from their customer pool considering that a lot of websites rely on such files in order to offer good services.

They are still a good budget website to go with if you are able to keep to their terms and conditions.
