BlazeServers is located in the U.S.A. and has servers in data centers in New York, Chicago, and Amsterdam. They only provide enterprise-level server rental, with no shared hosting option. It’s not clear how many customers they have, or when they were founded, which may be because dedicated server rental companies tend to focus on the quality of their services rather than the sheer quantity of customers. Their website and support are available in English.
Features and Ease of Use
BlazeServers offers enterprise-level hardware at affordable prices, including bare metal servers, unmetered servers, storage servers, gaming servers, cPanel servers, and fully managed servers. They also offer virtual private servers, voice servers, DDoS protection, and data migration. Their customers enjoy the following features as standard across all of their plans:
- 99.9% uptime SLA
- A complete redundant network with 1000 GB+ scalable capacity
- Average support ticket response time of one hour
- Servers configured the same day or the next day
BlazeServers’ servers are located in three data centers around the world, including two in the U.S.A. and one in Europe. Each location is monitored 24/7, is fully redundant and uses multiple Tier I carriers for connectivity. All servers are bare metal, and they use solid state drives (SSDs) for disk read times which are up to ten times faster than traditional hard disk drives.
Their base packages come with five IPv4 Addresses, 100 GB RAID storage, secured KVM/IP management system, and IPv6 support upon request. These also come with full root access and your choice of operating system. What’s more, you can fully customize the hardware as required to increase the memory and SSD disk space, add a secondary hard drive, configure RAID storage, and add dedicated IPs.
Pricing and Support
BlazeServers is one of the few dedicated rental companies that display their prices on their website and allow you to check out online. Their base packages are very well priced compared to both local and international companies. Choose as many upgrades as you need at the checkout, to configure a plan that suits your business and technical needs as well as your budget.
With this provider, you pay for plans monthly and you can cancel at any time with no cancellation fee. They also offer a price lock guarantee, which means “the price you pay today is the price you’ll pay forever.”
Since their servers are managed, you can be assured there is always an engineer on site to deal with technical issues. Support can be accessed only by email, with no telephone and no live chat support, but they respond to emailed issues in a timely manner with average response times of one hour even during evenings and weekends. They also have a knowledge base and network status page on their website.
