2. Can you please let our readers know how Host1Plus started and how it grew to what it is today?
The company was founded in 2008 in London, UK, with the first data centre there. We started as a Web hosting provider, focusing on our customers’ needs, ensuring immaculate network stability and solid server reliability. VPS services were introduced in 2012 along with new data centres in Johannesburg, Chicago, Los Angeles and Sao Paulo. Our customers’ base and trust was constantly increasing – after we reached 50,000 customers base we saw a great demand for Cloud servers, which were introduced in 2016.

3. There are 100+ of Web Hosting Providers in the Marketplace. How is Host1Plus different?
It is true that nowadays the customer has a wide range of different hosting providers around the globe that he can choose from. Furthermore, they might look really similar to each other – same server locations, same specifications, similar pricing and great uptime. However, I believe Host1Plus is different and exclusive for its attitude towards the customer: we aim to get to know our customer from his day 1 at Host1Plus. Day-to-day communication and quick problem solving of custom individual requests is our key to success while building trust and successful businesses of our clients.
