SingleHop Energy-Efficient Dedicated Servers Expands into New Chicago Datacenter

Chicago, IL, October 7, 2007: Chicago-based managed dedicated server provider SingleHop, Inc. is moving to a new large datacenter facility, having outgrown their current facility in less than a year.

SingleHop is moving to a South Loop facility from 600 S. Federal Street and will be expanding from 30 to 100 server cabinets housed in 5,000 square feet of operations space. This 24/7 state of the art facility features redundant UPS and HVAC systems and is literally located across the street from its power source.

"It was important for us to address our draw on the local power grid, so this datacenter features our newly designed dedicated servers that operate 30% more efficiently than the industry standard. Couple this with our close proximity to the local power source and weÕve really minimized our potential power draw,Ó says Zak Boca, President and founder of SingleHop.

SingleHop follows this move with a significant new incentive program that will dramatically affect their current and future client base. Details of this incentive will be released on Monday, October 16, 2007

About SingleHop, Inc.


SingleHop, Inc., is a full service managed dedicated hosting provider that was founded on the principal of providing reliable, cost-effective dedicated services. The company was founded by Zak Boca, who along with Dan Ushman started midPhase Services, Inc., which today is a leading shared web managed hosting company that services over 75,000 websites. SingleHop and midPhase maintain entirely separate support teams and operations; however, customers will be able to take advantage of the combined buying power of midPhase, which results in an overall savings on top of the line hardware, and bandwidth.

The cornerstone of SingleHop managed hosting is the ˆ la Carte Server Management Program, which is a full-array of transparent management services that were designed, and tested to allow business customers to tailor their level of support to their needs or expertise. The model was tested on midPhase's dedicated client base of over 500 servers, and it was decided to create SingleHop, a managed dedicated hosting company that would focus entirely on managed services via the ˆ la Carte Server Management Program. www.singlehop.com
