Company and Services
In 2000, a year after it was founded, the company's name was changed from WebCity to Brinkster. In 2004 Brinkster – full name Brinkster Communication Corporation – moved its headquarters to Phoenix, Arizona and in 2008 all its US staff were relocated there. The European headquarters is in Frankfurt, Germany.
Brinkster has customers in more than 175 countries. It has more than two million free and 40,000 paying customers, and hosts more than 60,000 domains. Brinkster offers the usual mix of domain names, web services, email and web hosting (which is available on both Linux and Windows platforms).
Web hosting from Brinkster is offered in shared or dedicated server packages. Within each of these you can opt for a small, medium or large hosting solution with corresponding amounts of storage, bandwidth and features.
All packages come with at least one free domain name - the larger the package the more domains you get free. It also has a 90 day money back guarantee (minus any set-up or domain name fees) if you are not satisfied with their service.
Brinkster boasts “Radical Support”, which is available 24/7 by live chat, email or phone.
