Considering an Amazon Web Services Cloud Server?
Amazon Web Services, or AWS, helps tens of thousands of companies serve complex websites and applications to customers around the world. From enterprises like Netflix and Spotify to startups and small business, AWS’s pay-as-you-go business model has taken the hosting world by storm in the last decade. However, many companies choose AWS without understanding what’s included…and what isn’t. As a result, those organizations miss out on important features and benefits like a fully managed, fully protected, and fully supported cloud infrastructure like we offer here at Liquid Web.
With AWS, you undeniably have access to cutting edge technology battle-tested by some of the most advanced organizations on earth. Unfortunately, to get the most out of your AWS investment you’ll need to manage that infrastructure entirely on your own. Furthermore, with AWS your monthly bill fluctuates based on the resources utilized in that billing period. That means properly budgeting for your hosting spend is a thing of the past.
Conversely, Liquid Web’s scalable cloud hosting solutions provide many of the same technology benefits you might find with AWS but also include 24/7/365 support from The Most Helpful Humans in Hosting®. Pricing is fixed each month, giving you predictability in your infrastructure investments. Wondering about performance? Our scalable, redundant cloud infrastructure has been tested by an independent third-party against AWS and offered superior performance on every test performed.
AWS is a great hosting choice for many, as evidenced by their massive growth in recent years. But if you’re looking for an even better choice for your business, allow us to show you the Liquid Web difference.
Liquid Web vs. Amazon Web Services:
Liquid Web didn’t become the world’s most loved hosting company overnight — or on its own. For more than 19 years, we’ve delighted our customers by providing industry-leading web hosting solutions built on best-in-class hardware and verified by independent testing to consistently outperform competitors. We’ve also worked hard to exceed their expectations for service and support at every turn, and our customers have been quick to spread the word. We provide competitive pricing that’s completely transparent — and predictable — and we include free, unlimited access to industry-leading 24/7/365 Support with every managed server we sell. And, of course, our cloud solutions incorporate one-click scalability and a rich API for full programmatic access. See for yourself how Liquid Web compares to AWS:
Nobody Includes More Than Liquid Web
Every Fully Managed Dedicated and Virtual Private Server at Liquid Web is engineered for peace of mind, with a full suite of performance, reliability, and security solutions included at no extra charge.
We provide full management for one of the world’s most popular CDNs, and full support when your site is added to CloudFlare through our interface. CloudFlare will not only speed up your site, but also provide a further boost to security.
Local backups are always included at no extra charge. For an extra layer of backup protection, you can add our Guardian backup system, which uses replication, synchronization, and point-in-time snapshots.
Security is paramount, which is why we include ServerSecure™ with every Fully Managed server. Your server will be protected by a range of proprietary security enhancements to block unwanted access and keep your data secure.
DDoS Attack Protection
We provide free basic protection from small volumetric DDoS attacks with every server on our network. Best of all, it’s always on and ready to go. For larger and more sophisticated attacks, comprehensive protection and mitigation is available.
The World’s Most-Loved Hosting Company
Nobody delights customers more than Liquid Web. Our Net Promoter Score (NPS® ) of 69 puts us among the world’s most loved brands — and makes us No. 1 in the hosting industry. What makes us special? Our customers say it best:
“Without exception, every time I’ve asked for help, Liquid Web’s staff has been overwhelmingly helpful and professional. I’ve never once heard ‘that’s not our job’ — even when I’ve asked for best-effort assistance to install some quirky 15-year-old PDF editing package.”
— Canton Becker
“I want to say thank you, thank you for the excellent service Liquidweb.com provides. Since Ocala Post, (ocalapost.com) a subsidiary of Jaguar Media Holdings, LLC., switched to Liquid Web, my business has run more smoothly. There has not been one issue that LW has not been able to solve or help me with. I personally appreciate everything LW’s employees do and their professionalism.”
— Byron Durning
