When the team working on this website asked us to write a quick message about why we started SiteHost and why we think you should trust your hosting with us we thought it would be impossible to explain in just a few short lines.
Now we know it is. Nothing we write or show you will earn your business or your trust, that takes time. We also won’t promise you 100% uptime or that we will never make a mistake, because sometimes outages happen and can’t be avoided.
Instead, what we can say is that the whole team works hard each day to provide a better hosting experience than you can get anywhere else (that’s why we started SiteHost) and we would love the opportunity to earn your trust the proper way; slowly but surely.

Fantastic Geeks, Nerds & Perfectionists
Erik feels at home on a Linux server and is efficient at getting the job done. Probably something to do with being German.
Mike worked at an ISP for years and still came out standing on the other side. Clearly IT doesn't scare him.
Albie is passionate about many things and loves to debate almost any topic that includes code, computers or music.
If you want to talk about infrastructure, security and anything else to do with hosting, Quintin is your man.
Lyndon probably has enough servers at home to start his own hosting company. We know, it worries us too.
When Shelby isn't writing code at SiteHost it's quite likely he's restoring one of his retro Apple computers.
A Quick Overview
Choosing hosting can be tricky and you’ve got better things to do. Let’s cut to the chase and see if a Dedicated Server is the right fit for you.
What is a Dedicated Server?
With Dedicated Servers we custom build your very own server to your specifications and then install it in one of our data centres. Nobody else can use your server, it is completely private and can be set up exactly how you want, no matter your requirements.
Is this the right solution for me?
Dedicated Servers are great if you require more resources than our virtual platforms can offer, or for projects that strict privacy, security or data sovereignty requirements. If you want the most power possible and the peace-of-mind that having your own server provides, look no further.
What are the important features?
- A custom built server designed to your exact requirements.
- Can meet requirements for projects with strict privacy or security concerns.
- No sharing hardware or resources with other customers as the whole server is all yours.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can I upgrade my server during my contract?
This is something we discuss on case by case basis with each customer, but as a general rule of thumb if you are upgrading to a larger server with increased spend there's no penalty for exiting the contract early. You would however be required to sign a new contract with a new term.
Do I need server management?
We highly recommend opting for Server Management if your server will be hosting critical applications or websites where uptime is important. Problems arise, downtime happens. You should consider who would respond at 3AM if there's an urgent problem, especially if you don't have your own dedicated system engineers.
