With the help of their 200+ member Heroic support team, Liquid is able to provide a reliable and secure environment for hosting. The company employs a network team that ensures all servers are up 100% of the time, a system restore team in the event that an interruption in service occurs, a monitoring team, and a data center ops team. For additional online security, Liquid Web utilizes a dedicated firewall for their more than 13,000 servers.
Liquid Web’s most afford VPS plan is their Linux Smart 1GB package with 75 GB disk space, 2 TB bandwidth, 880 MB RAM, and 1 IP address starting from $50/month. Their 2 GB plan can be purchased for $90/month. For users that prefer working with Windows, Liquid Web also offers a Windows VPS premium plan for $100/month. If you need a larger plan with more resources, you can purchase Liquid Web’s 4 GB CPS or 8 GB VPS package for $150/month and $270/month respectively. Unfortunately these plans are more expensive than the typical VPS package and it might be more worthwhile to take advantage of a dedicated server, especially if you want more control.
Usually Liquid Web offers Heroic support team and customers get to choose from three different levels of support (fully managed, core managed, and self-managed), but a great advantage to having a VPS account is that you receive Liquid Web’s fully managed support. Not only do you have the typical 24/7 customer support via phone, email, and chat, but you also receive full software & hardware management, full control panel support, 3rd party support, and a 100% uptime service level agreement. The company guarantees a 30 minute or less response time for all customers.
Instead of using traditional VPS or dedicated servers, Liquid Web has focused on smart servers, which employ cloud technology. This means that the company utilizes a cloud firewall, cloud load balancer, active cloud servers and on-demand cloud servers for additional resources. Liquid Web also has the capacity to create hybrid solutions, which combine the technology of smart servers and physical dedicated servers.
