JaguarPC is a web hosting company that's been around for a long time. Since 1998 in fact. So it predates many of the well known hosting providers today like Bluehost. So what's allowed them to continue for so long in a business where companies fall by the wayside all the time? Let's take a look.
JaguarPC was founded in 1998 by Greg Landis. Now while most founders of their original companies have moved on to other services, Greg Landis is still around and is in fact, the CEO. Here's the core management team:
CEO - Greg Landis
COO - Les F
COO - Larry
As you can see, they have two COOs! From 1998 when they started hosting in Atlanta with a Cobalt RAQ server, JaguarPC now has an impressive collection of Datacenters around the country - more than many famous hosting companies in fact! They now have around 300,000 domains registered with offices in Atlanta, Colorado Springs, Chicago, Houston, and the U.K.
Here's their primary address:
Jaguar Hosting LLC
685 Citadel Dr East
Colorado Springs, CO 80909
Telephone Number: (888) 338-5261
A big distinguishing feature of JaguarPC is that they haven't been bought out (yet) by any conglomerate. That means they're still a privately owned company and can afford to operate like one.
Unlike other hosting companies like Bluehost, JaguarPC is very open about the datacenters that it owns. That's right - owns. Their facilities belong to them. They don't share or rent out space for their servers. That in itself should give you an idea of how vast their network is. Here's a list of their datacenter locations:
Three of these are in the US, so if your target customers live in the US, you're in a great position to serve them from a location closest to you. The JaguarPC website provides incredible detail about each of these datacenters, and how they're hooked up to the Internet with multi Gigabit connections. If you want to know what kind of machines your website is running and in what environment, you JaguarPC has all the info you need!
Unlike a few other hosting services, JaguarPC has 24x7 support over the three major channels - phone, e-mail, and live chat. In addition, they have an active community forum which is one of the best places for its customers to get together, share feedback and tips, and solicit advice from other members. So if your server is down for example, you can expect to hear about it on the forums from someone else!
Not many hosting providers have a vibrant community forum. So this is a nice bonus.
Nothing particular stands out about JaguarPC's web hosting. Their pricing plans on their homepage are a bit confusing. Like other providers, they provide you with deeper and deeper discounts based on how long you sign up for. In addition, you seem to get a hefty discount on the first month of hosting. At least that's how it comes across.
Their pro plan also includes free domain name renewal, which is rather unusual - and welcome! They also have Let's Encrypt support, which allows you to get a free SSL that renews automatically from cPanel. So that's great as well. Many large providers don't support Let's Encrypt and it's good to see this kind of support from JaguarPC.
They also have cool features like staging sites where you can test out various stuff without making your changes live.
JaguarPC rents out its older servers at lower prices on their site. These don't have a fixed price, and you have to check with them manually as they get snapped up pretty fast. It's a good deal if you can get it!
So JaguarPC is quite a safe choice when it comes to web hosting. They've been in the business as long as anyone else, their datacenters are solid and privately owned, and the prices are as competitive as anything in the industry. What's not to like?
