From economical shared hosting
to powerful VPSes, we like
our servers like we like our coffee: strong and robust.
Fresh Roasted Hosting is an enterprise-class, full-service web hosting company headquartered in vibrant Harrisburg, PA. We're large enough to offer the same high-end services as our much larger competitors, but small enough to adapt to fit your needs. From our economical accelerated web hosting to powerful virtual and dedicated servers, our complete suite of hosting products can evolve with you as your needs change. You can read more about what makes us special on our "Compare Us" page, but we think this quote sums everything up perfectly:
"The only metric that matters is customer perception.
At the end of the day, did we make our customers happy?
Did we exceed their requirements and expectations? If
they describe us to their friends and colleagues, would
they be ecstatic?"
Fresh Roasted Hosting
After spending many afternoons in the local coffee shops, we had an epiphany: Serving websites is a lot like serving coffee. Anyone can buy a cheap coffee maker and sell supermarket coffee for fifty cents a cup. The end result is a (sometimes) hot liquid that (sometimes) has caffeine and may or may not taste, smell, and drink like coffee. It won't be very good, but after all -- you get what you pay for.
It's the same with web hosting companies. Anybody can buy an old desktop PC, install some hosting software, and away they go. And in fact, that's exactly what some discount hosting companies do. Without advanced server monitoring, multi-homed bandwidth, or backup power and cooling, who knows how reliable your site will be? The end result is a (sometimes) working server that (sometimes) serves your page correctly. It won't be very good, but you know the drill -- you get what you pay for.
At Fresh Roasted Hosting, we're more like your favorite local coffee house. Our servers are "fresh roasted" to meet the demanding needs of web hosting. We use only world-class datacenters featuring redundant cooling systems, multi-level backup power systems, and multi-homed bandwidth from major carriers like Level(3), Verizon, Zayo, and Internap*. And just as your favorite barista knows your order by heart, our friendly award-winning technical support team is on duty 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
But there's more. Because we're an independent, locally-owned company, a large percentage of our income gets re-invested back into the Pennsylvania economy. We sponsor local events, we patronize local businesses, and even our primary datacenter is right up the road in Dunmore PA! That helps build a stronger local economy, which is better for everyone.
At the end of the day, you've got a choice. You've seen those faceless mega-hosts that advertise a discounted come-on rate, only to discover that they require a lengthy multi-year contract. And you've seen those fly-by-night hosts that offer "unlimited everything" plans at absurdly low prices, only to discover that your site has disappeared a few weeks later. If those guys were instant coffee, then we're a fresh mug of craft-roasted coffee expertly prepared in a French press and poured at exactly 200 degrees.
* - The exact carrier blend varies by datacenter, but all of our datacenters use only name-brand carriers. Don't you wish all footnotes were this simple?
