Editorial Review


PowerSurge Web Solutions was founded in the spring of 1996. In an industry where mergers, company sales, and bankruptcies are common, PowerSurge remains solid, profitable, and growing. Our stability offers a sense of security and trust you won't find with other providers. PowerSurge remains an independent privately owned secure organization to this day. By leveraging our outstanding industry reputation along side over nine years of operation, PowerSurge Web Solutions is a quality-driven company that maintains a rare customer service and that prides itself on its independent success, rather than finding the next merger to appease stock holders.

Today Powersurge is still owned and managed in North East Iowa like it has been for over 10 years. In 2006, Nine Dot Systems, Inc. purchased Powersurge Web Solutions and made the company its flagship hosting company. The goal and vision of the new Powersurge is to again push to the front of technology and continue to be a leader in Shared Linux Hosting and Shared Windows Hosting. Over the last 6 months since the purchase, the new Powersurge has put 80% of it's client's websites on brand new servers and began to offer inhouse services like: Dedicated Servers, Online Web Marketing, SEO, and Web Design. By doing this Powersurge has again recreated itself as a one stop shop for all online Web Solutions.

The lack of reliable and ethical hosting companies during the mid-90s lead to the birth of PowerSurge Web Solutions. It has since become one of today's most respected and globally well-known hosting companies. PowerSurge offers an alternative to "budget" or "bargain" hosting providers by offering excellent customer support, lightly loaded servers, and solid network connectivity, while still maintaining affordable pricing. The current PowerSurge team has expanded upon the Company's founding ideas by offering 24/7/365 live support, one of the most reliable networks in the country, and expanded services at extraordinarily reasonable prices. Many companies will offer to beat our prices on similar packages, but Powersurge's support and hosting services are still un-paralleled.

PowerSurge is based in Independence, IA, and is a privately held company that does not sell shares of stock to the general public. The company provides web, application, dedicated, commerce, and data hosting services, as well as professional consultation and support. The PowerSurge client base includes individuals and businesses located in all 50 US states as well as over 150 countries worldwide.

PowerSurge is Iowa's largest web host and is consistently ranked among the top 25 hosting companies worldwide by numerous independent host-rating services. PowerSurge Web Solutions has 4 separate data centers that they own and operate servers in. They are in Dallas, TX; Chicago, IL; Fremont, CA; and Cedar Falls, IA. If you would like to learn more about each data center, then just go to the Facilities Page.

When you select PowerSurge, you select a company founded on ethical principals and one which upholds a reputation in the hosting industry as being elite among its competition. PowerSurge Web Solutions has, and always will, continue to provide the most reliable connectivity, hardware, excellent customer service, and support from entry level to enterprise solutions. We look forward to counting you among our thousands of satisfied customers!

Data Center

Powersurge makes sure when chosing a location for you website and our servers, that we have the absolute best solution for everyone. We also know that putting all our servers in one location could be problematic if there were a natural disaster in that single location. For this reason we employe 4 seperate data centers for our operations.

The Cedar Falls, IA Data Center
When selecting a data it is important to understand how the design aspects of this can be used to benefit your organization. The Midwest Data Center is a Class A enterprise level data center that features high availability in one of the safest locations world wide.

Data Center Architectural Design Benefits
The outside of the Midwest Data Center naturally blends in with the surrounding buildings in the office complex. It has no distinguishing feature that would identify it as an Enterprise Data Center. Once you have entered the Midwest Data Center you will begin to see the major differences between a standard office building and a secured enterprise data center. Cameras record all visitors 24x7 and the videos are archived for 45 days. Secured areas inside the data center are protected by key cards and biometric hand scanners.

The Fremont, CA Data Center: Hurricane Electric
The Fremont facility, located in the Hurricane Electric Facility, is connected to a national backbone which is ranked among the top in the nation. Dual OC48 (2.4 Gbps) connections to several major exchange points form network rings around the nation. These include MAE-West in San Jose CA; PAIX in Palo Alto CA; AADS in Chicago IL; NYIIX in New York NY; and MAE-East in Vienna VA.

The self-healing network eliminates a single point of failure. In addition to the backbone, a backup transit from multiple locations ensures that data arrives via the shortest possible route. The backup transit and the many international peers allows the network to maintain the shortest routes for sending data all over the world. In addition, PowerSurge is always looking at fiber carriers for potential new routes, additional backup transit providers, and new peering relationships.

Dallas, TX Data Center: The Planet
With multiple state-of-the art data centers located in Dallas and Houston, Texas, The Planet provides On Demand IT Infrastructure backed by complete redundancy in power, HVAC, fire suppression, network connectivity, and security. So if any of our data centers experiences a disruption for any reason, your eggs (or servers) are never in one basket.

A once reliable hosting service steadily going downhill?
I've been with them for many many years and when it comes to their customer communication and reliability of service it's been seriously going downhill for a couple of years now. At this point I may still receive a pseudo-response to a server-side problem after it's been fixed or a belated response to a change that was made which has since become irrelevant but what I don't receive are timely responses to outages, specific questions I have or chronic problems that are not being addressed - like how to deal with the uncontrollable flood of junk mail since ever they eliminated box trapper and replaced it with nothing... I'm starting to wonder if they completely outsourced their former operation and are just riding their old subscriber base out until they quit in frustration...?
