Hosting Like Coffee

Welcome to the official blog of Fresh Roasted Hosting -- the official web host of Central PA! We're an independent web hosting company headquartered right here in vibrant midtown Harrisburg, PA.

We believe that serving up websites is a lot like serving up coffee. Anybody can do it cheaply. But to do it well, you need to combine quality ingredients with time, skill, and atmosphere.

We start with enterprise-class servers, custom-configured to the extreme demands of web hosting. We mix in a blend of premium bandwidth from name-brand carriers like Level(3), CenturyLink, Zayo, and Verizon. We put it all together in our two datacenters in Dunmore PA and Dallas TX. And we back it all by 24-hour technical support from our friendly and experienced technicians.

Your website says everything about you. Isn't it too important to trust to just any web host? Ask about our custom solutions for your hosting, VPS, dedicated server, and co-location needs.
