    Aplus Data Center

    Aplus.net owns its data center in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

    Features
    Aplus adds dozens of servers each week, all of which are new. All existing equipment is on maintenance programs in full compliance with the manufacturers' instructions. All servers are powered by 150kVa UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) systems that provide additional protection from disturbances on the power grid. If utility power fails, they allow ample time to seamlessly switch operations to a diesel generator.

    They have also just upgraded to brand new Cisco Firewall hardware, and they are Visa® CISP Compliant.

    All UPS/Cooling infrastructure systems are new and/or maintained fully in accord with manufacturers' instructions.

    Guarantee
    Aplus.net maintains a 99.99% Uptime Guarantee.

    They guarantee that they will relpace any failed hardware within one hour. If they take longer you will receive 5% off your monthly bill for every additional hour of downtime (up to 100% off).

    They guarantee that their power and HVAC systems will be available and functioning 100% of the time with the exception of scheduled maintenance. Generally, maintenance occurs approximately 4 times per year, and lasts an average of 2 hours.

    Aplus CEO: Peter LaMantia
    Q. What is the chief distinguishing factor in your Web hosting operation that separates it from the competition?

    A. Our chief distinguishing factor is that Aplus.Net provides everything an organization needs to establish a successful online presence. There are many other web hosting businesses out there that only give you space on a server; and while we do that too, our primary objective is to provide all the tools necessary to make sure that our customers' sites are successful, rewarding, and profitable investments from the very beginning. Thus, we view our firm as a more of a marketing services firm that a technology or web hosting company, which is a significant distinguishing factor.

    Q. What are the Top 3 elements of your Web hosting company that your customers are most impressed with?

    A. Our customer care organization is a dedicated group of problem solvers; they're well trained and love what they do. We also have a superior team who work solely with our WebImage product—they thrive on creating professional business designs for our customers. Lastly, I believe our service reliability is an element of our service that our customers are most impressed with- Netcraft has recognized us as the most reliable hosting firm in June.

    Q. If you could change ONE thing about your Web hosting business what would it be?

    A. We’re considering several different avenues to help make Aplus.Net a more personable, inviting place for our customers. With over 100,000 customers, it can be somewhat challenging to increase customer loyalty with consistent customer communications. Nonetheless, we are looking at expanding the Aplus.Net brand to include areas of interactivity with our customer base that we’ve previously only touched on, such as discussion forums, question and answer sessions with Aplus.Net employees and even informational webinars for our customers.


    …I am simply amazed how snappy my new dedicated server is

    Now that I have finished migrating my web sites from my old overloaded server with another hosting company, I am simply amazed how snappy my new dedicated server is, and how fast my web sites are. I wanted to let you know how pleased I am with the performance and the excellent 24 hour technical support.

    Two of my busiest, most complex sites www.showsontv.com and www.vjvideo.com are significantly faster than they were before! This is especially impressive considering both of these sites have extremely high traffic and each employ complex search engine scripts that are processor intensive, as well as other CGI’s that were choking my old server.

    The best thing is that for less than HALF the price of my OTHER dedicated server, I now have a much faster processor and over 6 times the bandwidth!

    I can almost kick myself for not switching sooner! Also all my concerns about learning how to use the Plesk control panel were unfounded as it has been a breeze to set up the server and maintain it.

    Thanks for making it so easy to move over from my other hosting company!

    …Finally a web host that “has it right” when dealing with their customers.

    I can not express enough how impressed I am with your “customer support”. For a person relatively new to creating websites, this has been an invaluable help to me.

    It is absolutely wonderful to actually get a “live” person when you call on the phone, and the response time for email questions is amazing. I am so impressed with your hosting services. Finally a web host that “has it right” when dealing with their customers.

    Please feel free to use my “feedback” as it is meant to compliment everyone who responds to inquiries. You certainly must be at the top of the list of the hosting services available on the net. I went through some real “trials” to finally find a web host that is actually a pleasure to deal with.

    Again, Thank you for all you do to assist your customers.

    …I will unreservedly recommend Aplus.Net to everyone I know

    I have been in general exceedingly pleased with the service that I have received from Aplus.Net…
    As both a new business owner and new web site maker/maintainer, this maze of what’s offered out there in internet land can be completely overwhelming. Aplus.Net does a remarkably good job of making the process not terrifying and even, dare I say it, pleasurable!

    So, thanks to you and your team. I will unreservedly recommend Aplus.Net to everyone I know who is searching for a comprehensive, competent — and attentive — internet server.
