I recently took a look at a dedicated hosting directory and there were more then 100 companies listed, with so many choices how does one pick the right host for their needs? To begin, the dedicated hosting market is completely saturated with everything from huge companies that own multiple data centers, (The Planet, Softlayer, Rackspace) to […]

Last Thursday we held a company meeting after  hours to discuss our recent growth and new data center while taking some much needed relaxation on our 3rd floor deck.

I would like to start off by saying that I am not just an employee here at SingleHop.  I am also a client. I have an e5200 server that I bought from SH a few months ago. On this one, and other servers that I’ve owned, I had 10-megabit connections. Although I wanted more capacity, […]

Even as we celebrate 400% growth for Q1 of this year, our development schedule continues to buzz. Last week we released our blazingly fast, unmetered, and secure Private Network. It allows customers to have inter-server and non-public network connectivity at speeds of up to 1Gbps. So this week, it was just natural to compliment the […]
