Like a great cup of coffee, your domain should be bold and memorable. Being affordable doesn't hurt, either!

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.

When the Cloud Isn’t the Cloud

TechCrunch has a lengthy, if not perhaps buzzword-happy, article on the rampant appearance of pseudo-cloud offerings by a growing number of hosting providers.  You can read the full dig here, but this is my favorite quote: Collison describes the technology as the DNA of building blocks designed to deliver the velocity through the pipeline. In essence, […]

GoDaddy Outage

If your website is hosted on GoDaddy, odds are you already know about their major outage today.  And if not, well … you may be in for an unpleasant surprise when you check your site’s uptime report for the day.  As much fun as it is to pick on GoDaddy, the truth of the matter […]

What is Customer Service Worth?

The overwhelming majority of our customers come to us because they’re unhappy with their current host.  That’s not really all that surprising – after all, you wouldn’t leave a company that you’re happy with.  But in almost all of those cases, the issue that the customer experienced is one that could have been easily resolved […]
