Host Depot Awarded for Standing out in a Crowded Market

How one company stands out among over 24,000 competitors

Coral Springs, FL October 18, 2006 – Host Depot has recently been awarded the #1 shared hosting provider according to the WebHostDirectory, an online site specializing in the online hosting industry. This is one of several awards earned by Host Depot this year as a result of their constant upgrades, updates, and innovative programs aimed at allowing customers to stay ahead of market trends.

According to WebHostDirectory, “One of the biggest Web Hosting Industry’s [challenges] is providing more "bang-for-the-buck" web hosting and these guys are the best at it. They offer some incredible features at the absolute lowest rates,” said WebHostDirectory of Host Depot.

Over the past eight months Host Depot has been recognized by 4 industry publications, seven different times for their achievements as a hosting provider by utilizing market research to determine what customers need in order to succeed in their businesses. The findings have led them to hire new staff, upgrade their shared hosting plans, upgrade their SQL server platforms, create an innovative rollover bandwidth plan for e-commerce users, improve Search Engine Optimization plans and create a strategic relationship with Mercantec E-commerce to be the first hosting provider to give their customers Google Checkout. While all of these additions and changes were being made, Host Depot was recognized from May 2006 – October 2006 as a top 10 fastest growing company in size and prestige by HostReview, a top 10 hosting company by CompareWebHosts.com, a top 2 hosting provider by WebHostDirectory, a finalist in the pinnacle awards for the South Florida Business Journal, and finally the #1 shared hosting provider by WebHostDirectory this September.

“These awards have been great for our company and have given our customers another reason to be happy with their decision to choose us over all of the other options out there,” said Mark Erskine, President & CEO of Host Depot. “What we pay most attention to are the smaller details, such as our churn rate, which is less than the industry average of 3% per month, which shows the industry, and potential customers that we are the vendor of choice, with the best service they’ll find, especially at what we charge,” added Erskine.
