What makes our hosting better than Host Gator or other hosting companies?
Simply put, we are not just a hosting company like most other hosting companies are.. See, most hosting companies offer you a place to put your website and level 3/tier 3 tech support (and some offer tier 1 support that you are never allowed to talk to). This basically means, if something happens to your website and you call them for hosting support, they can only go so far to fix the problem and most will not fix anything website related. Why? Because they are a just a hosting company and not a company full of developers. Their job is to make sure the servers are working, not fixing your website if there is an issue.
The Turn Group has positioned itself to provide managed web hosting and business web hosting completely managed by the data centers which allows us to offer the 3rd, 2nd and 1st tier support services for your website and that is what really matters the most. And finally, because our hosting servers are managed for us, we do not have the overhead costs associated with a "just hosting only" type company. This allows us to direct our resources and focus on keeping your sites live and working as they should.
