What is the Hosting Coalition (HC)?
The Hosting Coalition, affectionately referred to as the HC by it’s members, is a cooperative, a family, a mastermind group, and so much more.
How did we come to be? In June of 2008, Precisely Managed, a premium web host launched. In June of 2009, Precisely Managed consulted/assisted with the setup of a DNS server for All Web Now. In March of 2014, All Web Now purchased infrastructure from Precisely Managed. Over time, the owners of Precisely Managed and All Web Now became more than just the typical provider/customer relationship, they became great friends.
Over time, we found that there were ways that we could work together and share in the benefits and in 2017 the idea of the Hosting Coalition was formalized. The picture to the left sums up the idea of the HC in one picture. We are many independent businesses (fish) swimming together as one.
For the hardware infrastructure, the HC leverages several vendors, but primarily our VIP account with Digital Ocean. At this time, Digital Ocean delivers the best value. We don’t mark up infrastructure, you pay what we pay, and you get any discounts we get. We have plans to build our own infrastructure once we build enough capital.
We have two stacks available for use, a cPanel based stack, and an Nginx based stack. Each stack has their own pros and cons, but both stacks perform exceptionally well. As with infrastructure, you only pay what we pay for licensing (cPanel, LiteSpeed, etc).
We have purchased several packages for our members! We offer MainWP, Astra Agency, OceanWP, Elementor Pro, Beaver Builder, Swift Pro, UpdraftPlus Premium, Elegant Themes (Divi), Gravity Forms and more coming soon! We also have plans to develop our own software to solve challenges our members face.
We provide support to our members and their customers directly all included in the membership fee. It’s End User Support but way better since we all run the same streamlined stack and can support your business like we do our own. Additionally, we don’t believe in having several levels of support. All technicians will be Level 3 engineers. We value getting the right answer on the first try.
As part of membership to the HC, you can leverage our staff. For example, when we hire a graphic designer, if you need a menu PDF designed for your customer who owns a restaurant, our designer can create it for you! Need some custom PHP code done, done! The HC exists to augment your business.
We’ve built and host email services, backup services, monitoring services, and anything you might need to support your business. We also provide consulting, help with business continuity, and so much more!
