General Impression

GlowHost is a web hosting provider that specializes in extremely reliable and affordable web hosting plans for individuals, businesses, and Mission-Critical Enterprise Hosting operations. GlowHost hosts tens of thousands of web sites of all sizes, and has been in the hosting business since 2002.

GlowHost is accredited with the Better Business Bureau (BBB), is a privately held, and debt-free company. We do not outsource our support services, and all of our employees are “in-house,” though many telecommute to work from various geographic regions.

We are very confident that you will enjoy our web hosting services and this is why we offer 3 Iron-Clad Guarantees.
Our current headquarters and main office is in Stuart, Florida. Our servers are well protected from the tropical weather and hurricanes that Florida sometimes experiences. How? We have isolated our servers from our main offices, and they currently reside in secure facilities in Atlanta, Georgia and Dallas, Texas, USA.

GlowHost offers a 60 day money-back guarantee. Most other web hosts simply cannot offer reliable, highly available web hosting due to inferior facilities, low cost network providers, poor infrastructure, and unknowledgeable staff. Due to these facts, most other providers cannot come close to matching what we guarantee to you.

All of our servers are connected via a dedicated 100mbps line. Other hosts connect at 10mbps or less! This allows full burstabilty to ensure your customers will reach your website even in times of peak traffic. You will never hit bottlenecks due to unavailable bandwidth.

60 Day Money Back Guarantee
We are so confident that you will be satisfied with our services that we offer an unconditional 60 Day Money Back Guarantee. If you aren’t completely satisfied, you will receive a full refund of your monthly hosting fees. This is a no questions asked money back guarantee.*

99.9% Overall Uptime Guarantee
You can count on us to have your site running day and night — like clockwork. We guarantee 99.9% overall uptime in a 12 month period. We are so certain of us being able to meet or exceed this figure that we offer MONTHLY uptime guarantees to suit your availability needs.

Monthly Uptime Guarantees
Our monthly uptime guarantees vary from hosting package to hosting package, so choose a guarantee level that fits your needs. Our monthly guarantee is an unconditional blanket guarantee provided to our shared hosting customers that means if it is a problem of ANY nature from network, datacenter issues, power or hardware failure, that we will give you a prorated refund of your monthly fee (up to 100% of your monthly fee) based on the end of the month calculations by a third party monitoring service. We base this figure on 720 hours per month.

Try finding another host that offers such rock solid guarantees. Most hosts IF they even provide a guarantee at all, only cover network outage and will not touch a hardware guarantee much less an unconditional blanket guarantee like the one offered by GlowHost.

This is new thinking in the hosting world and a new level of service invented by Try GlowHost today and make the change to reliability, support and performance that you should demand from a web host.

A VDS or Virtual Dedicated Server from GlowHost is a an array of many hardware devices that, with special software, can offer equivalent or higher performance to a standard VPS or even dedicated server.
