Thursday august 23rd, 2007, at approximately 11 pm, our backup power generator was unable to cope with a lightning strike to our data center and shut itself down.Â A technician was dispatched from the generator manufacturer, CAT, and was on site in 15 minutes after the outage.Â Battery power allowed our servers to keep working, however, the air conditioning units were disabled until generator power could be restored.Â After approximately 20 minutes of battery power a decision was made to bring down the equipment in order to avoid heat damage.Â Approximately at the same time as the network was being brought down, two mobile power generators capable of producing 1 Megawatt each, arrived on site on flatbed trucks.
After the two mobile generators started to feed the air conditioners and our main building generator kicked in, all servers were turned up to full service and were scanned for array problems. All together, most customers experienced about 30 minutes of outage.
In the last 24 hours, the Chicago area experienced floods, severe thunderstorms, and a tornado.Â Trees are broken everywhere and one of our staff lost his car to a flood.Â All things considered, we are very lucky that the damage was not any worse.
To head off any questions, yes we do have backup batteries, yes we do test the generator every month, and yes, we are prepared and have survived times this type of situation many times.Â We apologize for the outage and will be happy to speak with you on an individual basis about how this effected your service and what we can do to help.
Reliability and customer service that is rare and refreshing. We have been using eBoundHost for several years and unlike many companies who's service wanes over the years, the staff at eBound has consistently delivered top notch performance. Bravo!
Fast, reliable, full of features... Over the years, I have used more than a dozen hosts, both the big ones and smaller ones; eBoundHost.com is by far my favorite.
I have been a customer since December of 2001, and the service has been nothing less than excellent. I would recommend eBoundHost highly.
eBoundHost.com has the best customer service in ANY industry. Their support staff answers phone calls and emails immediately and they have time and time again gone over and above their responsibilities to make sure I am taken care of and that my clients are happy. I have many websites hosted here from small business to corporate level and have dealt with many hosting companies in the industry and eBoundHost.com is by far the BEST hosting provider there is. Great prices, great service, great hosting packages, and a killer reseller program! THANK YOU AGAIN :)
1) Their technical support people are always available to help with questions. 2)Server and network speed excellent. 3)Everything works great. 4)I highly recommend them!!!Thank you.
Over the years, I've dealt with many companies. None come close to equaling the service and price offered by eBoundHost.
eBoundHost is really the best hosting service in today's marketplace. Fast and efficient customer service with excellent IT knowledge. Good price and many bundled extra options. Highly recommended!
From using your hosting services for dozens of web clients and appreciating your wonderful customer service (all the while enjoying spending my meaty affiliate checks), I look forward to growing with you and watching you evolve surely and steadily into a powerhouse of a force to be reckoned with for your competitors. In an overcrowded abyss of hosting providers it is an absolute MUST to stand out above the crowd if you want to claim your stake and play with the big boys. Period. All I can say is this...Look Out World - GAME ON!!!
I was just looking over our emails and adding up how much time you guys have taken to get me squared away with my new eboundhost account. I can't tell you what a relief it is to have fast, dependable hosting and the kind of immediate support I've gotten from you, after having struggled with a sub-standard host for years. eboundhost has, in the short time I've been with you, already saved me hundreds of dollars of billable time. My thanks.
eBoundHost provides the very best service I've experienced in hosting. It takes less than 24h to get an answer to any question. They're great.
EXCELLENT across the board, super quick reply to questions (about 15-30min). Outstanding! Loads of features, excellent price! Loads of space and bandwidth!
SUPER SUPPORT - even during "off hours" - Sundays & holidays. Responses have always been within minutes of the initial call or email. The BEST vendor I have ever used in my 10 plus years as a webhosting services consumer.
I waited to write a review until I had absolutely everything working, thinking that something would come up that eboundhost couldn't solve almost immediately. I've never been so happy to be wrong - their customer support is just incredible.
I came to eBoundHost after a very bad experience with a so called "big boy" - you know one of those places you are only a number. I have been a satisfied customer for more than 4 years now. The support is second to none.
Cost, technical support and promptness of return calls are of paramount importance to me since most of my work is done on the road and waiting for a reply is frustrating. eBoundHost has been a pleasure to work with friendly, courteous and professional.
Every time I have contacted my host provider. They have responded with speed, courtesy and accuracy they are professional and a joy to work with.
