Ease of Use

Whether you’re setting up a custom cloud server with SSDs and a VPN and want to add block storage and load balancers or you want a hands-free WordPress hosting experience with cPanel control, Liquid Web makes it easy to get started.

To give the Liquid Web servers a test, we put out requests using a simple NodeJS/MongoDB app, without caching, using three different locations; the results showed combined page load times as much as 30 to 50 percent faster than those of competitors. Overall, our team found their servers to be pretty impressive, and if you need help getting started, the Heroic Support® team is only a click or call away.

Uptime and Performance

Website uptime is one of the most important aspects of a hosting service. If your site is down, clients or customers will be unable to find you or access your products or services. You do not want that. Fortunately, Liquid Web is incredibly dependable.

I use a website monitoring tool to track my test sites’ uptime over a two-week period. Every 15 minutes, the tool pings my websites and sends me an email if it is unable to contact any of my sites for at least one minute. The data revealed that Liquid Web didn’t go down once over the course of those 14 days.

Available Features and Add-Ons

Want Security? Liquid Web’s got you covered. The company offers firewalls, Secure Socket Layer (SSL), virtual private networks (VPN), malware scanning and removal, and much more.

Some features come bundled with specific packages, while others you’ll need to purchase as add-ons. Liquid Web has free nightly backups, too, which will safeguard you should your site suffer massive damage.

Help and Support

Liquid Web customer support team, is one of the best you can find in the industry and it works around the clock, 365 days a year. We contacted them on multiple occasions during our test run with LiquidWeb, and they were nothing but helpful.

The 24/7 customer support options include phone or live chat assistance, and you shouldn’t have to wait more than a 59 seconds to receive help. Whether you have simple WordPress questions or are running into more complex issues, the LiquidWeb team is there to help.
