Top 10 Reasons Why I Choose TigerTech Web Hosting

There are hundreds of web hosts out there, In my opinion Tiger Technologies (tigertech.net) webhosting offers the best web hosting service. I tried Dreamhost, (mt) Media Temple Grid-Service (gs) , etc., definitely Tiger Technologies is the best.

If you’re looking for a powerful, reliable and cheap web hosting company, look no further then Tiger Technologies!

If you’re looking for hosting suggestions, Here are the Top 10 Reasons why I choose Tiger Technologies Hosting for our wordpress blogs.

1. Cancel Anytime – No long-term contract

Whether you choose monthly plan or prepay annually, you can cancel at any time (even in the middle of a billing month) and receive a refund for the unused portion of the prepayment. Unlike other providers Tiger Technologies doesn’t have any gimmicks, they don’t force you to commit to a fixed contract length, just Cancel Anytime.

More over, If you’re not satisfied with their service, just cancel within 90 days of signing up. You’ll get a full refund of all the Web hosting fees you’ve paid, with no quibbling. This guarantee is provided together with no long-term contract.

2. Excellent Customer Support

Simply Tiger Technologies customer support is excellent. Customer Support will solve your issues and explain it in both geek and in layman’s terms. If you have any issues you can open a ticket or send e-mail message and you’ll get a prompt comprehensive reply by e-mail in no time.

The same person will handle any followup questions, even if your questions are sent over several days or weeks. You get better answers when you’re helped by someone familiar with the issue.

Every single time I had a question, without fail, amazing customer support staff have helped in solving problems. They are familiar with the issues.

Both onsite and offsite backups are made daily. You can easily restore backup files yourself incase of any failure. If you would like Tiger Technologies Customer Service to do it for you, they are happy to restore for you.

3. Free domain name

All the Tiger Technologies web hosting plans include completely free domain name registration and renewal. You will get free domain when you transfer your hosting from different provider. Tiger Technologies is an ICANN accredited domain name registrar, not just a reseller for another company.

4. Best WordPress Hosting

WordPress is one of the most popular free blog program. I had my sites with dreamhost, Media Temple and couple of other providers, but Tiger Tech is the best wordpress hosting provider I have ever experienced, WordPress works very well on their servers. If you experience WordPress performance issue, don’t worry Tiger Tech support FastCGI ( FastCGI for PHP scripts allows the script to stay preloaded in memory) to speed up your wordpress along with WP Super Cache.

They don’t use cPanel like most larger hosting companies. Instead, they have their own control panel. There’s no Fantastico feature. WordPress is easy to install and you can do it manually. Amazing Customer support will help you to install wordpress or any software with proper and easy directions.

5. Bandwidth and Storage Space

Tiger Technologies offers shared-hosting. You have the option of 3 plans to choose namely Silver Plan, Gold Plan and Platinum Plan.
Disk space : Silver Plan – 5 GB, Gold Plan – 10 GB, Platinum Plan 25 GB of Disk space. Bandwidth : Silver Plan – 250 GB, Gold Plan – 500 GB, Platinum Plan 1 TB of Bandwidth.

I have 3 sites hosted with Tiger Technologies Silver Plan package, in which one site averages close to 1 million pageviews per month. If you have a site with several million pageviews per month then choose Tiger Technologies Platinum Plan. If you ever need more, you can upgrade to a larger plan for a small extra cost.

    I like the idea of not being locked in to a contract.

    Good 10 reasons dude i too like Tiger Tech web hosting….. you have done a great job.

    I too tried Media Temple and then switched to TigerTech. I noticed a large improvement immediately. They are small, but they have big servers that they don’t overload, and constantly rebalance to keep under 50% utilized. Properly configured websites can sustain a huge hit and keep on ticking.

    No, I don’t work for them, I just asked a lot of questions and got excellent, timely answers. And straight-forward. No hidden meanings. Great service. http://www.tigertech.net.

    i should qualify that I don’t really know how “small” they are, just that I presume they are smaller than Media Temple.
