We were with Superb for 4 years. During the first 1.5-2 years things were OK. Then we started having issues - 3 bad disks, faulty power supplies, a few techs that seemed clueless. The end for us was on 12/30/11. Our hard drive failed and all data was lost. The back ups which were stored on the same machine but a separate disk were also corrupted. (In March 2012, 1 of our techs went to visit the datacenter and noticed the box had a faulty power supply.) After a month of back & forth with their tech people, we had a sever again but no data. We wound up going elsewhere and never using that server again. We forgot to cancel our contract until then sent us a bill in the beginning of July 2012. (Because I was on manual pay not automatic pay I got a bill). We canceled the service. Superb responded by sending us a note saying we would be billed up to August 3rd because we had to give them 30 days notice. On top of this I was getting a jillion notices everyday that if I didn't pay my [read more...]
I was a customer of superb.net for several years. They started out okay, but over the years, I had frequent problems with unreliable servers, email downtime, and sudden billing changes. After losing some of my own clients due to their unreliable service, I finally had enough and decided to move my business to another hosting company. I submitted a service cancellation request. Within days after submitting the cancellation, I was informed that they had "discovered" an error they made in billing over a year ago and they should have been charging us more for our account. Therefore, they decided to BACK-CHARGE us for over a year's worth of THEIR billing errors. We were never informed of this supposed increase in monthly charges - and now they were back-charging and telling us they wouldn't cancel our account until we paid for 14 months of charges. We tried to contact their billing, customer service, and tech support departments and could not get a response. Our support tickets, [read more...]

Here's How it All Began...
Back in 1994, Haralds Jass was just a 14 year-old eighth grade high school student. He and a group of like-minded online developers decided to take advantage of the emerging Internet's new possibilities by inventing an immersive and interactive online computer game called "Woodlands." They even composed original music for the game's soundtrack just as MP3 was being invented.
Their project was proceeding so well that a publisher expressed interest in bringing the game to market. So Haralds and his group founded the company Superb Entertainment. Unfortunately, development kept being plagued by technical difficulties, as they were pushing the limits of current web capabilities with their innovations. Commercial web hosting itself was still quite new, and their shared hosting provider was unable to resolve the sporadic power outages, unexpected crashes and other performance problems that not only hampered development, but made the launch of such a product an uncertain venture.
So with regrets the game was shelved for the time being. Instead of giving up, Haralds saw this as an opportunity to research the industry and see if he could find demand for a reliable web hosting operation that was well managed and could meet performance expectations. As he puts it, he saw the need for a company that was "more responsive, more reliable, and more customer-centric." Despite his young age, this was the seed that eventually germinated to grow into one of the oldest and most respected web hosting companies in the world.
The Formative Years
In the summer of 1996, Haralds stepped up to the next level. Having located a number of online contacts who had similar problems with their hosting providers, he began taking pre-orders for his new shared hosting service. His family dentist loaned him six hundred dollars to buy a single Sun Solaris server at a colocated facility in Maryland, with Haralds' promise that the entire loan would be repaid within two weeks of the launch.
True to his word it was; Superb Internet Corporation was actually profitable within ten days of launch! The loan was repaid and from that day on, the company was self-funded and self-financed, operating on positive cashflow from its initial clients and others who soon signed up, attracted by word of mouth. By the end of the year, the company owned ten servers and had to hire a contractor to help with the workload.
Growing the Industry
By the summer of 1999, Haralds was in his first year of University studies. His company, Superb Internet, already had over four hundred servers hosting ten thousand websites. The company now employed ten remote employees, and all of the major reputable agencies consistently rated them as the #1 web hosting provider. In particular, Superb Internet was becoming known for its quality of service and reseller services, as well as an important internet "first": name-based virtual hosting, which brought down costs and helped pave the way for even individuals to have their own websites. Superb also introduced customer-controlled virtual hosting with unlimited third-level domains, and a number of other innovations that not only helped the company grow, but drove the industry as well.
First Data Center
Superb's potential for even greater growth was becoming clear. Haralds decided to postpone returning to school so that he could devote his full time to managing his company. By this time, Superb had opened a physical office in Vancouver, Canada, but was starting to outgrow the colocation facility in Annapolis, MD—where it was already using more than fifty percent of the facility's space. With dwindling room, the company had to make a move in order to maintain its ability to grow. Superb made an offer to buy the data center outright, as this seemed to be a logical solution, but the offer was refused.
Management began the search for a new facility they could purchase outright in an area that would allow for future growth. The team found a site that met their needs in the Georgetown neighborhood of Washington, DC, one of the best connected areas in the entire U.S. for a web hosting company.
2002 to the Present
In early 2002, Superb Internet grew again—with the opening of DCA2, its second data center, located in McLean (Tyson's Corner), VA. At the same time, a coast-to-coast IP backbone network was added, using the services of HopOne Internet Corporation. This vital addition ensured that Superb's customers were connected to the fastest and most reliable network available, and greatly helped its push for further growth.
The opening of DCA2 and new partnership with HopOne doubled the available capacity for additional servers and led to increased network quality. These moves also created opportunities for dedicated server colocation, which helped diversify the company's offerings and reach new clients. The second DC facility paved the way for Superb Internet's aggressive plans for expansion to meet growing demands, and positioned Superb Internet to continue its reputation as one of the prominent leaders of the web hosting industry.
Seattle Data Center
Another major expansion occurred in 2005, when Superb opened a new data center on the west coast. Known as SEA2, the Seattle data center is located in one of the best connected high-tech cities in the United States, the perfect complement to the existing DCA2 Network Operations Center (NOC). The west coast location provided for multiple diverse-path fiber transport circuits from a variety of stable carriers, adding another level of redundancy to ensure premium connectivity. The launch of the SEA2 data center also opened up a number of new opportunities and provided a critical service to new and existing clients who required a west coast presence based on their user demographics. Some larger high-demand customers could now take advantage of the opportunity to have geo-load balanced servers on both the east and west coasts.
In June 2009, Superb Internet opened its latest data center, located in Springfield, VA, to accommodate its high growth. Superb made significant investments to to ensure this new facility meets Superb's standards for a fully redundant data center. As with all Superb data center locations, the Springfield data center is staffed around the clock, 24x7x365, with experienced, certified system and network engineers who specialize in maintaining IT hosting infrastructures for mission-critical data.
Ever since 1996, Superb Internet has prospered because of the loyalty and satisfaction of our clients. Since 2000, when we became completely independent and controlled our entire proprietary network, Superb has grown from just 400 servers to over 40,000 servers, hosting hundreds of thousands of unique websites that millions of internet users look at every day. As Superb Internet continues to grow, the commitment of everyone—from Haralds, our developers, customer service, and technical staff—to provide the very best to our clients will guarantee that Superb's service is always Ahead of the Rest.
Along with our committed customers, we believe that web hosting is more than just a web address and an IP address. Besides the latest servers, hardware solutions, ever-expanding bandwidth, and novel colocation packages, we emphasize the value of service. Without superior service, all the hardware in the world is just racks of machines.
That's why our technical care support staff are always available to you, 24x7x365. Because so many of our customers are internationally based, our staff work through the night, through the weekends, even through traditional holidays. (It's true: you can rest assured we're here Thanksgiving and July 4th keeping an eye on your servers!)
All three of our protected data centers provide fully redundant power, cooling, and networking to ensure consistent performance in the event of power failure, weather disturbances, construction cuts, and unforseen events.
Owning our own IP backbone is a huge benefit, because our customer data travels coast-to-coast on our own network, exiting directly at the destination network more than 60% of the time. That means we can provide the most efficient routes, lower latency, as well as minimize overhead.
Don't forget, we've been in continuous service since 1996!
Plus, we offer data center outsourcing services.
We offer clients with specialized needs customized colocation services, which include private cages on our data center floor, as well as self-contained data centers—fully autonomous with their own backup generators, HVAC, and UPS systems—inside our state-of-the-art, secure facilities.

Less Expensive Bandwidth
Due to the efficiencies of our proprietary IP backbone and the redundant cross-connections of our infrastructure, you gain the cost savings.
Backup Generators and Fuel on Premises
If the local power supply is ever disrupted, our backup power and fuel on premises keep your servers running.
The Latest in A/C, Temperature and Humidity Controls
Often difficult to control, your servers' physical environment has a powerful effect on optimal performance. Our data centers all have the very latest equipment for steady and reliable temperature, humidity, and particulate control.
Location, Location Location
Consider the proximity of the data centers...do they serve your business needs? Our data centers are located in Seattle, WA—the original high-tech city!—and two just outside Washington D.C., at locations originally used by the NSA and other governmental organizations—the original hub of the Internet.
Another key consideration in your choice of Colocation partner is the company's track record. As you know, Superb has a stellar record of consistent performance since 1996.

i've been with this company for years. they were really good in the beginning. but recently, it's simply been horrible. whenever there's an issue, you write a ticket and they try to solve it. but recently i've had issues with them, instead of trying to solve the error, they try to get you to buy a higher priced hosting. i tried to talk to the manager, instead of having a customer service manager call me, they had their sales manager call me. haha. all he did said was, id like to understand the problem, but the only solution is to upgrade.
They do have regular updates, but they're pretty much useless consisting of statements like:
"Our Systems Team is still overlooking the issues we are facing on our shared mail services. We appreciate your continued patience and hope to have more details shortly."
That won't help me get my mail. If you need email I would avoid this company.
The one thing Superb really falls down on is their e-mail servers. They sometimes are down for a day or two. Although they keep you informed as to how they are doing, the bottom line is still that they are not doing well. Lack of e-mail access would probably make this company a no-go for a business which relies on communication - anything sales related, for example. I still plan to stick with Superb for now because they are great for cheap accounts and shared hosting, but if I expand my needs I will probably be looking for a more reliable solution to e-mail.
Now, its September, and guess what?! AGAIN, major server crash. It's been 2 days. While these folks are well intended, the unreliability of this hosting service is simply too high to risk your personal and/or business hosting and e-mail.
I am on a shared hosting plan.
I have switched to another host and it is literally night and day...24/7 live voice tech support as opposed to Superb's e-mail support, with 24 hour turn around.
The customer service over the email is pretty useless - Your hosting option does not allow - this. You will need to upgrade...
Downtime is rare though. In all these years I have had only 5 downtime lasting about a day each time. If you think this is normal that is.
Yes. They have a reasonably fast server and connectivity is fairly decent.
