Being one of the prominent web hosting services around, RackNine decided to push the envelope in making their service even better by upgrading their customer support options for their many affordable RackNine Dedicated Servers plans. This is indeed a crucial step forward especially being in a competitive industry such as this and the fact that customers are not only getting more demanding but affluent as well with their hosting needs.

For further details, lets have a look at RackNine's recent Press Release:

RackNine Cuts I.T. Overhead for Customers New Offering from RackNine Equals Expert Support & Great Value Edmonton, Alberta (March 27. 2007) –
RackNine a leading provider of shared and dedicated web hosting services, is expanding options for its dedicated server customers by adding an Assisted Service Plan–a professional solution without the traditional costs. RackNine’s technical support will address needed patches, backups, monitoring and vulnerability assessments. Customers can get the power of a dedicated server without having to perform all of the administrative tasks associated with an unmanaged account such as server startup, patching and anti-virus protection. Add-on services, with the purchase of a service contract, include security scans, backup and recovery, monitoring and escalation management, at no additional fee. Custom engineering options are also available, billed at a flat hourly rate. The plan can be added to qualified dedicated hosting accounts during the purchase process. While users are provided with a basic startup environment, RackNine can also assist customers who have special needs. As with all dedicated servers accounts, customers can choose from a wide range of options including operating systems, RAM, hard drives, processors and firewalls. In addition, as with all RackNine services, the plan is backed by RackNine’s round the clock customer support. For more information on RackNine dedicated server plans, visit About RackNine RackNine Inc. is the evolution of its former company, Couple Guys Consulting. Originally founded in February of 1997, Couple Guys Consulting grew as a leader in automated website management, developing the popular and widely-used SiteTools content-creation system. Couple Guys Consulting entered the web hosting arena in 1999 after being unable to find a reliable method to outsource its hosting arrangements. A subsidiary (CGC Network) was formed to handle hosting needs of both Couple Guys Consulting's web presence as well as needs of a quickly growing userbase who were also unhappy with their current hosts. Hardware solutions were heavily researched, technical staff was hired and trained, and CGCNetwork's experience in high quality dedicated - and shared - hosting began. CGC Network has since evolved to provide inexpensive and incredibly reliable consumer hosting services. New servers and infrastructure have been laid, our aggressive package pricing is implemented, the newest and most advanced user management system ever created has been installed, and our always-present commitment to providing high quality service has turned CGC Network into one of the fastest and most user-friendly systems available.

I personally place huge importance on hosting reliability, prompt response time and server stability when it comes to hosting. With all these array of new upgrades made, RackNine truly inject a peace of mind to all their customers.

Furthermore especially for bloggers, their shared hosting plans starts from only USD 3.95 per month which comes with more than enough adequate features to manage your own blog with your own independent domain name. One of the standard feature I am sure everyone would appreciate is being able to choose from over 100 professionally designed templates in various color variations.

The part I love best about RackNine shared hosting is being able to sign up for shorter periods at a slightly higher price. This is important for those interested to try out hosting their own blog and gauge if they want to pursue it further and it also allows their customers to try their service and hosting capabilities.
