As if jumping out of an airplane once wasn’t enough… this past weekend Zak Boca, our president and CEO, and I went sky diving again. What can I say, it’s addictive. And a great deal of fun.

That said, it seemed appropriate to launch our new homepage and offerings this morning. We’ve been planning to do this for some time, but we wanted a perfect launch and a great deal of work went into getting it off the ground. So, with great pleasure and pride do I present to you the new and improved SingleHop homepage—featuring pictures of your favorite SingleHop employees sky-diving (including me!!!) and links to nearly a dozen videos of our fellow co-workers falling from 14,000 feet at 120 miles per hour… that’s fast. But want to know what’s really fast? I’ll tell you…

Our new line of Xeon servers is fast. No, seriously, check out our homepage to see some of our new offerings. Today we launched three new Xeon servers, one based on the Lynnfield processor architecture (which, in turn, is based on the Nehalem core architecture … but that is getting really technical … so I’ll stop.)

So, without further delay, it is my great honor to announce the official launch of four new SingleHop servers:

The Xeon E3110 with 4 GB of RAM, a 500 GB Hard Drive and 6 TB of Bandwidth for $159/month
The Xeon X3330 with 6 GB of RAM, a 500 GB Hard Drive and 8 TB of Bandwidth for $219/month
The Xeon X3360 with 6 GB of RAM, a 500 GB Hard Drive and 10 TB of Bandwidth for $239/month

And last, but certainly not least …

The Xeon 3430 Lynnfield with 8 GB of RAM (upgraded from 6 GB), a 1 TB Drive (for a limited time only, will be a 500 GB drive soon) and an amazing 10 TB of Bandwidth for just $249/month!

But wait, there’s more… and it’s worth reading about. The Xeon X3330, X3360 and X3430 all come with Free cPanel. Click on the “Get Coupon Code” buttons for your own personal coupon code.

But wait, there’s even more … well, not much more … after all, when says, and I quote, “The i5 is dominant in [its] performance and price range” about a server you’re offering, and then there isn’t much more we can offer … but, for those of you who took the time to read my blog post before November 15th, mention it to your SingleHop account executive and we’ll throw in an additional terabyte of bandwidth … making it 11 TB of monthly bandwidth, and a blog post well read. Now note, I haven’t told any of our sales people about this special bonus blog-only offer … so you will have to point them to the post. If you do, you’ll be rewarded with an extra terabyte of monthly bandwidth.

And that’s a wrap!

    Woah, sky diving! Sounds… crazy lol

    Nice servers, nice price, nice promo. Congrats dude, looks like you guys are doing a great job, hope we can move our server to SingleHop, I don’t do it right now just because I’ve just paid my dedicated server on another webhost ;/

    Trust me… It feels a lot crazier than it really is… Tandem (remember that word if your reading this) jumping is with an instructor strapped to your back. Thing is, after your 2nd Tandem jump, they let you jump all on your own… and that is the level that Zak and I are at now–our 3rd jump, if we ever decide to go, we can AFP#1 which basically means we have our own parachutes, and an instructor jumps with you (but not strapped to you.) So, I honestly don’t know.. you tell me, should I try AFP#1?

    Thanks for all the kind words on the specials — we’d love to have you over here :)
