M3 Server Introduction
From its humble beginnings in a single office offering shared hosting and dial-up service back in 1996, M3 Server has grown tremendously. The company offers a variety of hosting plans geared toward making the customer’s “every dollar count” so customers can focus on their businesses.
Services and Specializations
M3 Server offers many different hosting services including VPS, dedicated, and WordPress plans. Besides hosting plans, the company offers other services. As a result of its “Great Desire to be Excellent”, M3 Server strives to offer quality hosting at cost-effective rates to individuals and small businesses no matter how big or small.
M3 Server offers a number of VPS plans. These plans vary by the amount of RAM, hard disk space, and CPU cores. The VPS plans run on the Apache web server and are configured with Nginx and ZEND to greatly improve server performance. M3 Server’s VPS plans support additional software packages and scripting languages including PHP, MySQL, WordPress, and Joomla! Besides the standard VPS plans, customers can select from VPS plans using SSD storage technology which delivers improved performance. However, these are slightly more expensive and provide less disk space.
In addition to VPS plans, M3 Server’s customers can choose from a set of dedicated or “bare metal servers”. These plans are ideal for customers who want their website on their own server without having to share resources with other websites. The plans are split into multiple groups for different applications including business servers and feature at least 30 Mbps network speeds. The dedicated plans, like the VPS plans, also offer support for similar scripts and packages including MySQL, Joomla, PHP, and Drupal.
Customers who just want to focus on creating blog posts using WordPress without having to deal with servers, can select M3 Server’s WordPress plans. Like the other plans, the WordPress plans come with at least 2 dedicated CPUs, a high amount of bandwidth allowances, and some RAM. The WordPress plans include setup without additional fees along with malware removal. M3 Server’s managed WordPress hosting is specially optimized to improve response times and enhance website performance.
Other than providing hosting services for customers, M3 Server offers additional services. Customers who need assistance monitoring and running ad campaigns, can take a look at the company’s AdServer plans which vary in price by the number of impressions. Those who need technical help in migration or backup can take a look at M3 Server’s Site Tech plan. Other plans customers may consider include website monitoring, CDN, and video streaming services.
Infrastructure and Uptime
M3 Server’s infrastructure consists of datacenters in multiple locations throughout the US and Europe. Though M3 does not give many details on its datacenters, the company is able to achieve and guarantee a 99.9% uptime.
Customers who need their data protected from loss should consider backup plans from M3. The backup plans vary by the amount of space that can be backed up offsite on a daily basis. Customers concerned with reverting back to a previous backup will be glad to know that the backup plans include at least 10 restoration points.
Support and Customer Service
M3 Server prides itself on serving its customers no matter how big or small. As a result, the company allows customers to contact support in many ways including phone, e-mail, and support tickets. In addition to contacting service, customers can check out articles and tutorials on the company’s website 24/7.
After selecting a plan, customers can pay the hosting bill using credit cards or PayPal. Most of the plans are billed on a monthly basis and no discounts are offered for paying upfront. Additional services including AdServers or domain registration may require a one-time fee or yearly payments.
Founded in 1996 with humble beginnings, M3 Server has expanded to include additional services and hardware. Its mission involves a “great desire to be excellent” through its loyalty to customers and use of quality hardware. Customers looking for quality hosting at low prices, may do well with M3 Server’s plans.
