LOS ANGELES - Recently launched TierOneHosts is entering the Web-hosting game by offering new members free hosting for two of the first three months, providing members with the company’s semi-dedicated server package.

"Because customers get their first month free, pay for their second month, and then get the third month free, our introductory deal works out to less than $30 per month for a customer’s first three months — without any long-term commitments," said Devin Smith of TierOneHosts. "That’s far less than what the bigger hosts can offer."

TierOneHosts, which launched in December 2006, offers virtual and dedicated hosting options, flexible solutions, cutting-edge technologies to ensure speed and uptime, and competitive pricing options, he added.

"Being a new company ourselves, we know that we have to appeal to the hosting market in a unique way, and we’ll put our money where our mouths are to show customers that bigger isn’t always better," Smith said. "What may look like an average sale is really our way of showing customers that we, as a smaller hosting company, really understand their small-business needs, including cost-effective hosting options that don’t sacrifice speed."

The new 5Mbps semi-dedicated hosting account proffers clients 20 gigabytes of disk space, 1580 gigabytes of monthly bandwidth, unlimited domain hosting, unlimited email accounts, and more.
