Connection

This is probably the most worried-about and misunderstood part of hosting. When a provider tells you they have a fiber optic connection, what does that mean? It could mean anything. Extreme Web has connections with many different providers with varying speeds. We have a 3 hour turnaround time on failed equipment, and we have backup equipment to keep it running in the mean time. If you are interested in learning exactly how fast our connection is, contact us and ask what type of connection your web site will be on when you sign up. Our connections are balanced to give everyone enough bandwidth. We also have very low utilization on our connections so that they don't max out at peak times. What does all that mean? It means we are fast - very fast.


  Dell PowerEdge Servers

Equipment

Did you know that most Internet providers don't even own the servers they put your data on?! They lease space from providers like Extreme Web and than resell it to you! Since we own all of our equipment, that gives us many advantages over the competition:

  • We can fix problems immediately. Since it's our stuff, we can fix it. What happens when other providers go down? They call someone else and try to get them fix it. That's not the right way to run a provider.
  • You get the best deal possible. Because there's no middle-man, you get the best possible price and the best service.
  • We know what we're talking about! Extreme Web owns all of it's servers so it knows how they work, what they're capable of, and what to do to make them go fast.
  • Extreme Web servers are monitored 24 hours a day to make sure nothing goes wrong. If the unexpected does happen, we can fix it immediately.

Extreme Web doesn't hide things from you. Our equipment is the best. We buy PowerEdge servers from Dell, the largest direct computer vendor on the planet. Our servers are fast, our servers are reliable, our servers work for you.

Every server at Extreme Web uses constantly updated hardware. Each machine has hundreds of megabytes of RAM, and is fine tuned for maximum performance in it's respective application. We use RAID configurations and Ultra Wide SCSI-3 hard drives for data reliability and speed. Each machine is connected directly to two networks: our Internet connection as well as our high-speed Intranet. This reduces unneccesarily wasted bandwidth on the Internet by having the servers communicate with each other over the dedicated low-latency Intranet.

People

Don't you wish you could talk to a person when you call with a question about sales or technical support? One of our goals at Extreme Web is to have a person answer the phone as soon as you call, instead of talking to a machine. We don't want to waste your time or money.

Extreme Web is owned and operated by real human beings. We answer your questions in an easy to understand manner, and always give you the full story. We are always interested in showing you that one piece of HTML you don't understand or the Active Server Page that you can't get to work right.

Microsoft Certified Professional + Internet

We have a deep understanding of how our equipment works and how to use it properly. Our administrators have formal training and many years of experience. The web sites designed by Extreme Web webmasters have won dozens of national and international awards because we are the best.

 

Prices

Yes, you can find cheaper prices if you look deep into the bottom of the Internet. We know we aren't the cheapest provider - but we do provide the best value. What does that mean? Well you generally get what you pay for, and when you go to a provider with outrageously low prices then you get outrageously bad service, speed, support, etc... At Extreme Web, we pride ourselves on giving you the best of both worlds. For a very competitive price you get great service, blazing speeds, and responsive support. We hope you will choose Extreme Web for your important investment.

 

Control

We give you control over your web site. You are the webmaster after all! The online service manager is an exclusive feature of Extreme Web, written by our own programmers. It gives you complete control of your account and web site online. You can change your billing information, add email accounts, change your passwords, setup your web site preferences, check your storage space usage, get the latest updates on our servers, and much more.

 

Reliability

We know that getting your content to the world is our number one priority. We use RAID configurations and have scheduled back-ups on DAT tape backup drives to make sure you never lose data. Our network is reinforced with multiple connections and routes to the Internet in the event of a failure. And, of course, we use Uninterruptible Power Supplies to ensure that our computers never turn off. We even have backup generators at our facilities for maximum reliability during extended power outages.

 

Quality

The Web Sites we develop are quality that you will find nowhere else. Our entire web development team learned HTML (the language of the web) from the ground up and watched it develop into what it is today. In fact, many of them are members of the Internet Society, an organization devoted to the development of the Internet and the World Wide Web. We know the nitty-gritty details and the robust features of this amazing language to make your web site stand above the rest. The sites that we have developed in the past have won dozens of national and international awards for their ease of use, interaction, collaboration, and appeal. Now your company can take advantage of our experience.

 

Technology

We have the hardware and software to develop your web site right. Our team uses the latest software to make graphics and web pages that catch the eye. Our enormous hardware collection consists of an array of workstations with hundreds of megabytes of RAM and the latest processors. We have a large armada of Digital Cameras, High-Resolution Scanners, Notebook Computers, Professional Sound Cards, CD-Recorders, Video Cameras, High-Quality Video Capture Equipment, and much more at our location to stay ahead of technology.

We have an array of development servers with the same configuration as our production machines. We rigorously test any new software, updates, patches, or scripts for weeks before they can be put to use.
