We have had our site hosted by Gate.com for over a year now and have been completely satisfied with zero downtime. We’re just a small company and the price is very affordable! I’d recommend them to anyone.

Gate.com Introduction

Gate.com has been around since the early 2000s and offers a broad range of hosting products targeting small and medium sized businesses. Their focus is on offering a wide selection of products so customers can get exactly what they want, and offering great support to get companies online, fast.

Product and Services

Gate.com focuses their services on small and medium size businesses. For hosting, that means they have shared hosting in a variety of tiers with each tier offering customers progressively more storage and add-ons. In contrast to other hosting companies, Gate.com has built their product tiers for specific functions.

For example, their top tier, which would normally simply have more storage and be on faster drives, actually includes a range of benefits specific to ecommerce customers, and is focused to appeal to that specific niche. These add-ons include mobile and drag-and-drop site builders, social media management, SEO, and email marketing assistance. It's worth noting that many of these can be added to other plans for a small additional monthly cost. Their shared hosting plans can be hosted on either Linux or Windows.

Gate.com also offers VPS hosting with Linux on Windows. All VPS plans are hosted on SSD drive Dell R700 servers with Intel dual hex core, and offer either Plesk or cPanel control panels. Their VPS plans come in a variety of tiers, with more expensive plans offering more storage and RAM.

Finally, Gate.com offers a number of auxiliary products for businesses including email hosting, domain registration, SharePoint, SSLs, and dedicated IP addresses.

As for languages, for their Linux-based plans, Gate.com offers PHP, Perl, C++, TCL and Python. For their Windows hosting, they offer PHP, Perl, Jmail, MSXML, MSADO, SA File Upload, ASP 3.0 and ASP.NET.

Infrastructure

Gate.com's datacenters are sprinkled all over North America from Vancouver, Canada down to Austin, Texas. Each datacenter has a wide range of redundancies and security measures for continuous server uptime. Each server cluster is serviced by a SONET ring to a Tier 1 network backbone. This process is powered by a battery system recharged by a redundant power grid, backed up by on-site generators.

In terms of physical security, each datacenter has 24/7 surveillance, card-restricted access, and biometric security.

Customer Support, Guarantees, and Policies

Gate.com offers 24/7 live phone support for all their plans as well as a ticketing email system and a knowledgebase. All their servers are managed. All their share hosting and VPS plans also include a 30 day money back guarantee. This excludes setup fees and any purchased add-ons.

Some plans also include unlimited storage and bandwidth. While there is no set limit, Gate.com does reserve the right to throttle any customer's website should it begin to adversely affect other websites hosted in the same server cluster.

Summary

For a company looking for a fully managed all-in-one web solution, Gate.com is perfect. Their robust additional offerings mean that a small or medium size business can have one IT vendor for a whole range of technical solutions, including SEO, email, and website hosting.

To get a great site up and running fast, it's hard to look past Gate.com.
