ReliableSite’s decision to expand in Los Angeles was made to fill a need for dedicated servers on the U.S. West Coast. Los Angeles is a well-known hub for the hosting market, as it offers direct connectivity and low latency to many areas of the world. In addition to expanding hosting in the U.S., this location will provide reliable routes between the U.S. and countries in the Asia-Pacific area, including China and Australia.


“We are happy to announce that ReliableSite is expanding to another data center that has always been in demand for our customers,” said Radic Davydov, founder and CEO of ReliableSite. “We look forward to offering our premium network and respected service in more places than ever.”

NOT-SO-STANDARD HOSTING

ReliableSite dedicated hosting customers and resellers at any location have access to the company’s unique “rapid deploy” servers, which are pre-configured bare metal servers that allow growth similar to that of a cloud environment without the limitations of cloud. Rapid deploy servers are perfect for those who need a quick setup and all of the resources of a dedicated server.

Also available is industry-leading “DDoS protection for all” – 20 Gbps included for all dedicated hosting accounts, and upgraded to 100+ Gbps on demand. This places customer uptime numbers high above its competitors.

ReliableSite has one of the most active and fastest growing dedicated server reseller programs in the hosting industry. It offers incredible ease of use through an extensive API and third party billing system integration. All of these benefits allow resellers to take advantage of ReliableSite’s new locations or products through their own brand the moment they are available.
