Amazing. Sets the Bar for other Hosting Wannabes..
Server beach is the best company our there... I have a dedicated server with them for some time now and never had any issues. They are truly a serious web host's dream. Support is incredible, polite, courteous and simply there when you need them. Their servers are what they strive on, ultra fast, stable and reliable. Disregard the disgruntled posts from irrelevant jealous companies attempting to defame another, smarter people prevail.... I will be with them for a long time to come. Proof is in their pudding... ;)

SERVER BEACH SUCKS! Honest Review.

To any potential client of serverbeach, if you're new to self managed dedicated servers DO NOT sign up with server beach.

So here's the deal.Our company signed up with serverbeach without much knowledge of how to setup a server on an administrative level but being figured it's something we could figure out since, when we called they said they don't set up servers for customers. While setting up the server, it asked us to create extra ip addresses for each nameserver. We didn't quite understand how the ip system worked so we guessed an ip expecting an error if we were doing something wrong. Alas no error message appeared and it said "free ip address created" so we thought that's the way ip's were created, and we created another one in that fashion. The very next day we got a letter stating that out server has been terminated because of unauthorized ip use.

We sent in a ticket to confirm the exact problem just to make sure and their abuse [read more...]

Editorial Review


For ten years, PEER 1 Hosting has been helping customers use the web to bring people and ideas together to change the future. Together, we deliver business hosting solutions that combine best-in-breed technology, a 100% uptime guarantee, and amazing customer service. We're passionate about hosting, so you don't have to be. And over 10,000 customers are happy about that every single day. Our core services include Dedicated Hosting (through ServerBeach), Managed Hosting, Colocation, and Network Services through 16 data centers across North America and Europe connected together by our very own SuperNetwork.

How PEER 1 Hosting Got Started

Two maverick minds had a chance meeting in an elevator. Lance Tracey and Mark Teolis were both successful business leaders who found they shared a similar passion. A passion for the untapped power of the Internet. And a belief that it was about to radically transform the business universe. They also believed that this power should be available to all businesses - large or small. In fact, Lance and Mark believed that the web could become the great equalizer, leveling the playing field and giving small and medium sized businesses the stage and tools they needed to compete against anyone. This chance meeting sowed the seeds for PEER 1 Hosting.

Legendary Fully Managed SuperNetwork

The SuperNetwork is the powerful, rock-solid backbone of our hosting services, built for customers like you who demand speed and efficiency - with no hitches. Using a multi-vendor approach, we've brought together the smartest technology available, such as Juniper and Cisco, to make sure there's nothing it can't handle. We have over 13,000 miles of fibre connectivity. You don't get that kind of speed and connectivity anywhere else. Don't just take our word for it either, check with other hosting providers and see for yourself. When you host at ServerBeach, you get a team of professionals dedicated to building the strongest, most reliable and secure network on earth. Imagine hosting your server on a network with more than a dozen data centres. Nobody else even comes close to what we can offer you in terms of reliability and solid uptime. Not only can we deliver, but we do it better, faster, and we're more securely.

Why ServerBeach
Bang for your buck. Powerful servers. And fantastic customer service. Just some of the reasons why more geeks are heading to the Beach.

Support

Top Five in the World
Together with our parent company, PEER 1, we have over 10,000 customers, operate over 20,000 servers, run 13,000 miles of cable and have nearly 200,000 sq. ft of data centre space in 13 cities. We're financially sound and stable too. This success is built on one thing - client happiness. We are one of the world's best, because around the world people recognise great service.

LifeGuard Support

We're geeks first. That means we understand you want support from people who actually get it when you need it, and automation tools so you can take matters in your own hands. You won't find any level I staff answering the phone. Only seasoned technicans who care, don't talk down to customers, and can resolve your issues fast. We've earned a reputation at the Beach for providing kick-ass 24x7x365 support that you won't easily find with unmanaged hosting providers. So much so, our customers rewarded us recently with a Net Promoter Score of 49. The average for other IT support service providers is just 7. We're committed to making life easier for you at the Beach. You shouldn't have to go anywhere else.

Server Management Tools

We know the kinds of tools you long for. That's why we developed Rapid Reboot, Rapid Rescue and Rapid Reload from the ground up - to let you manage and troubleshoot your servers yourself. We want to keep our hands off your servers as much as possible and turn the control over to you. This keeps errors and costs to a minimum. Our server management tools come free with every dedicated server.

Reliability

Super Network

Few hosting providers own their own network. Even less have one that spans 16 global data centres, and only one has been running theirs for ten years. That's us, and that's why you won't get our speed and connectivity anywhere else. Don't just take our word for it either. Check out the competition and see for yourself.

Network uptime guarantee
You want to build a growing business without ever outgrowing your business hosting provider. With us, that's one less thing to worry about. We provide the most scalable hosting environment for startups and small to mid-size businesses ready to explode online. We span the globe. How big do you want to be?

100% network uptime guarantee
Every business hosting provider claims this or something like it, but we'll put our money where our mouth is and offer credit for any downtime. We exist to help your business run better. That's why we take network uptime and performance very seriously. We're only happy when you're firing on all cylinders.

Data Center

Geo Diversity

Choose Your Data Centre Location
We're one of very few umanaged Dedicated Hosting providers in the world that offers servers in four geographically diverse locations - Los Angeles CA, San Antonio TX, Herndon VA, and London UK. This means you can choose to locate your server closest to your customers for better performance or backup your data in a separate location from your primary server. The opportunities are endless.

Customer Support

Personal account manager
We want to make things easy for you. After all, you're at the Beach. So, we give you your own personal account manager. A single-point-of-contact to take care of everything you need and to make sure you have a pleasant stay. You can expect faster response time, deeper account familiarity, and quicker access to new offers and promotions.

My ServerBeach Portal
Access MyServerBeach.com and take complete management over your Dedicated Hosting environment. You can manage your dedicated server, interact with the support team, modify billing information, and access exclusive offers. You can reboot, reload or rescue your dedicated server with the click of a button. Or, edit DNS entries when you need to.

ServerBeach Hosts Record Comic Book Auction - PEER 1's (www.peer1.com) dedicated hosting division, ServerBeach (www.serverbeach.com), battled Doomsday-strength traffic for online retailer ComicConnect (www.comicconnect.com), a client that recently ended a rare comic book auction, which sold the first-ever Superman comic for a record price of $317,200.
Running from February 24 to March 13, ComicConnect's auction period experienced unprecedented traffic - a web host's Kryptonite - due to bidding and the international media attention garnered when it became apparent that the 1938-printed "Action Comics #1," where Superman made his first appearance, would become the most expensive comic book ever auctioned.
Written by Jerry Siegel and drawn by Joe Shuster, the unrestored book is among the ten most valuable copies out of the roughly 100 believed to exist. The original owner of the Action Comics #1 sold on ComicConnect bought the comic from a second-hand shop for 35 cents in 1951 when he was nine years old. He noted that his father ...

ServerBeach offers an impressive array of options and upgrades. However, over the past three years, we've experienced a number of server hangs, reboots and ultimately a crash. They have been quick to respond to our complaints but never seem to find any problems with the server. Our server was hosting basic web and email applications, nothing heavy duty or resource intensive.

There is no migration capability to grow from one server to another. Other unmanaged services offer server imaging to move entire systems to larger machines. Their answer was to copy the data and reinstall all applicaitons ourselves. Nice.

Customer Support is unappologetic and uncaring, but they do answer the phone.
