This week, we had the opportunity to speak with Stijn Belmans, Marketing Lead Manager at Revaio and Hosting4ever. We discussed how the company evolved, what is its mission, and how it differs from other similar websites/companies.
Please present Hosting4ever to our audience
Hosting4ever is a hosting company that wants to provide hosting and domain names for the lowest prices possible. We aim for excellent service (4,9 on 5 rated), the fastest servers in the Netherlands, and the lowest prices (starting from €0,45 per month). We want to make hosting affordable for everyone: from a student at a university college to a business who wants reliable hosting without thinking about the cost.
We host more than 1.000 clients and websites in the Netherlands, and in Belgium and other countries as well.
Please describe the story behind the company: What sparked the idea, and how has it evolved so far?
Hosting4ever started in 2007 when Eelco Hövels founded Me Media, a design company with roots in Enschede. After 14 years of entrepreneurship, he wanted to make sure that Hosting4ever stays a neutral company that doesn’t get integrated into a network of hosting providers (e.g. Team Blue, …). So in 2021, Revaio BV took over Hosting4ever to continue Eelco’s work. We want to continue without price or changes, but with excellent quality and service.

We offer the following services:
– Shared hosting on regular servers and on LiteSpeed servers;

What is the mission of Hosting4ever?
Our mission is to provide excellent service and hardware/software for competitive and even lower prices to make sure that everyone can put their website or webshop online.
What separates you from other similar websites/companies?
We want to make a difference by providing a service beyond expectations. We help a client even further than most hosting companies. Besides that, we offer multiple services such as maintenance and marketing/development/… to make sure that every client gets everything he deserves, but for a Hosting4ever price.
What are the plans for Hosting4ever for the near future?
We want to expand to different countries such as Germany and France. Also, we want to integrate our agency services more into our hosting platform. Last but not least, we want to launch our Hosting4ever Academy to help entrepreneurs to get the most out of their business.
