About twelve years ago (in 2000), Add2net.com which was and is still managed by Mr. Ronnie Riddle decided to launch a web hosting service. It was time when customers were in need of feature-packed web and affordable hosting plans. This is how LunarPages was born, and has grown into a company hosting more than 150,000 domains and employing over 100 staff members.
They say that a company is only as good as its data center. Well, Lunarpages has four datacenters in different parts of California – Los Angeles, Riverside, San Diego and Las Vegas, an optimized call center in La Habra, CA and a some satellite technicians in other parts of the USA.
Lunarpages started off by offering simple shared web hosting, but has grown to offer Linux hosting, Windows hosting, dedicated servers and virtual private servers on both Windows and Linux platforms.
Their most popular plan is the basic one for business sites, small projects and blogs and forums, offering free set-up, unlimited bandwidth and storage, as well as many accounts as you want, spam protection, webmail, POP3, SMTP and IMAP support.
Lunarpages offers various options for dedicated hosting and VPS/Cloud servers, with Linux dedicated servers available for $109 a month and Linux VPS servers – for $44.95 a month.
As for the control panel, there is no surprise here – Lunarpages provides the cPanel, the most popular tool for managing websites.
Lunarpages has great support and the support information on the website has most of what one needs to get problems fixed. The phone line is available 24/7, as well as live chat. And if you don’t mind waiting, there is always an option of submitting a support ticket.
Lunarpages has consistently managed to uphold an uptime of 99.98%, which is a quite high indicator.
If you are looking for a reliable web host with many data centers which offers you everything from the basic affordable web hosting to Cloud servers and excels at support, LunarPages could be the one to choose.
