Steadfast Networks

I've been working with Steadfast Networks for all of my hosting needs for over a year now and they have been, by far, the best hosting company I have ever worked with. With not only the best user support I've ever witnessed they also have some of the best prices I've ever seen.

When I first started looking around for a replacement to my Network Solutions account, I really wasn't sure who to go with. I enjoyed Network Solutions, I used to work for them, but after leaving the job I couldn't afford to keep them. My first thought was to go with GoDaddy, because they are a big company with cheaper prices than Network Solutions, but for whatever reason I didn't. I found Steadfast Networks.

I was initially attracted by the price. I wanted to run a blog (the one your reading right now), and I didn't want to spend a lot of money. Steadfast Networks offers a Shared Hosting Starter Plan for only $24.95 a year! You can read all about what they offer on their site (link above).

Once I purchased my package I found that the control panel was really easy to use. Everything is well organized and with the Shared Hosting package the Dashboard offers everything you need with one click.

I survived for nearly the first full year running my one little blog on the Starter Package, but eventually wanted to expand. I wanted to migrate my band's website into my account as well as build a few others. I contacted their support team and they quickly gave me step by step instructions on how to do what I needed to do in a human readable email (not too much tech jargon). So I upgraded my package to the Shared Hosting Basic Plan. Now I'm running not only, but also, and Not to mention all the test sites that live in subdomains that popup ever once in a while.

Now, just recently, I've started my own Web Design/Development company (domain coming soon!), and I plan to host the sites that I build for my clients on Steadfast. The best plan for me to do this, and to control the environment that I'm working on, was to purchase a Reseller Hosting package. Now I don't want to get into the business of web hosting, that's Steadfast Networks job, but I will take advantage of their convenient package.

I did run into problems with the package. Truth be told, I don't know what I'm doing. I can build webpages (mainly in Drupal and Wordpress), but when it comes to servers and hosting, I'm a moron. So for my first time in my relationship with Steadfast Networks, I had to call them for support over the phone. The person I spoke with reassured me that I was on the right track and that he could help me with whatever I needed.

Long story short, Steadfast Networks has gone above and beyond in helping me. In fact, as I write this, they are reconfiguring the package for me (I messed some things up). The poor person that I've been bothering for over 3 hours now has been more than kind and dumbed everything down so that even I can understand. The best part is, when I do something wrong, they don't just fix it for me, they explain why it happened and what I can do to do it right the next time.

I would advise anyone looking for hosting to go through Steadfast Networks. Get a Starter Hosting Package and upgrade when needed.

Note: This is my personal opinion. I do not work for Steadfast Networks now nor have I ever. If you don't receive the wonderful service I have, don't blame me, I'm just here to tell you about my experience.
