M3Server has come a long way from its humble beginnings back in 1996 when they worked out of a small office and had a single T1 connection and offered the lesser known “dial-up service”.
One thing that is super amazing about this company is that they have some wonderfully loyal clients that have been with them since day 1 (over 2 decades). Fast forward to today, and M3 Server has several data centers around the world in places like California, Utah, Missouri, Virginia, Washington DC, Amsterdam, and London. Although they have grown to a great size, M3 Server, still retains the same energy and provide small to large customers with what they call “Great Desire to be Excellent attitude”, no matter what size of account you require.
A Great Desire to be Excellent
M3Server has a simple mission that is “A Great Desire to be Excellent”. They specialize in managed hosting and want to provide the best-managed hosting experience at the most affordable prices. They want their customers to experience more, and receive “less hype and more action”, as well as providing quality hardware and networks. Their expertise and up to date hardware is second to none. They specialize in fully managed services, so that you have peace of mind that your hosting is organized, and you can focus on your site, knowing that your server is in order.
M3Server: Customer Service
The customer support is very quick and accurate. When checking out reviews I read that the tech messages are on point, and very concise. This will be due to the fact that M3Server has highly experienced, in-house, US support staff. They have a very customer-centric approach and will go the extra mile to meet their customer’s needs. They are highly recommended by their customers, who say that the support is second to none, with around the clock dedicated care.
They have a great super simple blog that has some technical advice, such as how to keep your WordPress site secure. They advise minimizing the use of WordPress plugins as each plugin is a security risk and some even contain malware. They also have a knowledgebase that customers can search to find additional technical assistance.
M3Server: Stability and Uptime
M3Server has a great track record with a 99.99% uptime, making them an industry leader. They make sure servers are up 24/7 via advanced monitoring of all critical services. They also monitor your server to make sure that if your server is running low on resources you are alerted immediately and have time to maintain the stability of your service. All of the services are scaleable, so you can upgrade or downgrade directly from your customer portal should you need to. A great deal of care is taken by M3Server to monitor the quality of the servers and make sure they are never oversold or overprovisioned.
M3Server provide a daily backup service as an optional add-on. The backups are done in off-site locations to provide maximum safety of your files in times of disaster recovery. You can either have one file restored or a whole database. Even if you need the full server to be created in a new metal case, that is a service that is offered at a reasonable price.
