Reliable Hosting Monitoring

Reliable Hosting Monitoring at a fair price

At 040Hosting we are looking every day at improving our services and how to give our tools back to our users so they can benefit from it too; our latest addition may just be what you need, Reliable Hosting Monitoring !

Not limited

While we are well aware there are hundreds of monitoring services on the market we believe we have an offer which is better as the rest, not to mention very reliable.  Already from the smallest monitoring package we do not limit your checks, we do not limit locations you can monitor from and we do not limit the amount of notifications you can send out, no matter if this is by means of Voice calls, SMS messages or other notification methods.  So you want to monitor your service every minute from all locations around the world, no problem !

More as just ping monitoring

In example 040Hosting does monitor its managed servers as well, we do this not by a ping as most hosting providers do but by actually connecting to the webserver and retrieve a page. We also check our servers against several RBL (Realtime Blackhole Lists) to catch any mail blocks before they become a problem to our customers. Our monitoring service does not stop there, a wide range of monitors is available to you and if they are not sufficient you can create your own scripts to be called from the monitoring as well.

No hidden costs

No hidden costs, you pay for a set of monitors + for each notification contact you create. This means you can start monitoring 5 services for only EUR 5,10 a month (including 1 notification contact); for each additional notification contact you pay 0,10 EUR for unlimited messaging. Many other providers let you buy packages for SMS and Voice calls; we include this in the contact fee, so you will never find yourself without credit and thus no notification.

Easy setup from our support portal

Setting up monitoring is simple and is fully integrated within our support and billing system, you can simply login to your account and configure your reliable hosting monitoring.

Unlimited Addon domains and the truth behind it

First things first, what are addon domains

When you buy a hosting package you often have limited or even unlimitted addon domains, but what are they exactly ?

At hosting we call the main domain attached to the account the ‘Main Domain’ all other domains attached to the account (this could be other websites) are called addon domains; or sub-domains. There is also another term you may hear which is Parked domains but these are distinctively different from addon or subdomains as they never have their own content but forward to a existing content under one of your domains, subdomains or addon domains.

What is Semi-Dedicated Hosting

One of the services we offer here at 040Hosting is Semi-Dedicated Hosting, but what is semi-dedicated hosting and where to buy the service ?

New SSD Hosting Europe and USA

What is better as 040Hosting’s standard shared hosting offering ? Well our new Shared SSD Hosting Europe and USA   hosting packages, they come with all the good from our standard hosting packages but with the speed of SSD drives and not just any SSD drives, drives handling up to 100,000 IOPS; now that is a huge performance. As with all our package we only sell non-oversold diskspace.  Currently this service is only available in our Strasbourg or St.Louis facility.

Please note that 040Hosting only offers real diskspace; you are not secretly added to a storage server with loads of ram to ‘mimic’ a SSD storage unit; we also do not oversell any diskspace; what we offer is what you really get. This makes us not the cheapest in the market, but it makes us proud to be a honest service provider. Hence we call our diskspace ‘Real’.

To celebrate our new SSD Hosting packages you can grab an account at 20% discount for the lifetime of the account, this offer is only valid for this month ! Coupon: newssd

Next to the SSD service on Shared Hosting Europe and USA accounts we also offer the service on our SSD reseller packages, so you can sell hosting to your clients on a blazing fast platform without giving in to quality. So if you are a designer or web developer and want to sell quality hosting directly to your clients take a look at our fantastic reseller SSD packages as well. If you do not need the speed of SSD you can also look at our standard reseller packages.

Asia: Singapore webhosting lowered in pricing

Today we changed the pricing of our Asian Singapore Webhosting to the same amount as our packages cost in 6 other global locations, due to the higher cost of infrastructure we needed to start out with a little higher pricing plan but since we have grown we now can provide our Singapore hosting at the same costs. Also our existing clients on this infrastructure will pay the lower fee as from today, we do not stop there they will receive an extra discount on their packages in July 2014 to compensate for the additional payed months. That is our way to say thank you to those customers which launched the Singapore Location.
