SingleHop Not a Beer, But Your Leap Into Cloud Based, Dedicated Web Hosting
Despite the name and random misconceptions that it’s some form of beer, SingleHop is actually a Web Hosting Company with a mission to design, deploy, manage dedicated and cloud based solutions. The perks of their services are that you are able to host your website on any number of servers (dedicated or Cloud-based,) meaning the sites they host are not on a shared server with 1000 other users within some massive server farm.
Companies like SingleHop are utilizing dedicated solutions that keep its users from having to worry about their site crashing due to another user hoarding all of a particular server’s resources. Dedicated servers are needed for those who have sites that get large traffic, or may expect a huge increase in traffic.
Services such as SingleHop's can be purchased and deployed anytime, or in situations such as the one listed by Kevin Swan, Director of Communications:
“Say, if you go on the ‘Today Show’ and your site gets a mention, you better expect to get a huge increase in traffic. You are going to want to make sure your server is ready and able.” - At Blog World & New Media Expo, LA.
SingleHop launched their LEAP3 Solutions Management Platform on November 7th, in Santa Clara, CA at The Cloud Expo. One of the most unique features of LEAP3 is a crowdsourcing element where solutions are created by members and made available to others.
Each time the solution is used by another client, they get paid for their solution. You can easily rate and share solutions that you find useful. This process is similar to what you may find on threadless.com, allowing the community to build a company’s products. You also have access to Remote Control - which means you can provision, reboot servers and duplicate your entire infrastructure. No matter where you are, you can access LEAP3.Continued on the next page
