Background

Main Web Creations began in 1995 as a web design service for small businesses.  Time and again clients would ask me about also hosting their website for them.  At that time I would refer them elsewhere, but was too often horrified to learn about the poor level of service they received from these outside sources.  Clearly there was a need to provide high quality, affordable hosting facilities backed up with personal service.  This is what motivated me to try my own hand at it.  So in 2000, I refocused my business, now called Main World Hosting, and have met with great success ever since.  The personalized support and superior data centers I now offer my customers have proven to be the key factors in my ability to be a competitive force in the ever-growing website hosting marketplace.

I continue to research, upgrade, and improve my hosting services so that my customers always receive the highest quality for the lowest possible price.


The Hosting Network

The hosting facilities/data centers I put to work for you are located in Amsterdam (Netherlands), Berkshire (UK), Seattle, WA, Dallas, TX, Washington, DC (USA), and in Singapore.  They are staffed 24/7/365.  Most use multiple Tier 1 telecom providers with a total network bandwidth capacity of 110+ gigabits per second.  They are all completely redundant, including backup generators and batteries.


Guarantee

Your website will have a 99.9% up-time.  If I fail to deliver, I will credit your account one month of your hosting plan fee.

Cloud Hosting Option

If your website up-time is critical and you're looking for 100% up-time, then cloud hosting is for you.
Here's a little background on Cloud Hosting:

No dependence on hardware: When you host something on a cloud, you don’t depend on the hardware. You don’t have to worry that you’ll run out of RAM, hard drive space or processor power, because if you do, you can easily add more, in a few seconds. A datacenter usually has thousands of servers with thousands of Gigabytes of RAM, hard drive memory and processor cores. And if they’re interconnected in a cloud, nothing stops the hosting company from adding more resources to the sites or virtual machines that need them.

Increased Reliability: Cloud hosting can be more reliable than any existing technology because everything is virtualized. Everything can be easily stored in multiple copies in the cloud, so if a few machines go down, the rest take over the work and no data or performance is lost. It’s like a massive RAID array, only for all the resources, not only hard drives.

Infinite Scalability: Ease of practically infinite scalability is one of the major advantages of cloud hosting. Because everything is virtualized, you can add, swap and remove memory, hard drives or processors without interrupting the work of any site and without losing any data. You can add a few dozen new servers to the cloud, power them up and the cloud will seamlessly integrate and put them to work. No downtime, no performance or data loss, no problems, only more power and speed.

Infinite Performance: On a usual dedicated server, the resources are almost always used below 60%, and it practically never runs at full capacity. This is just a waste of energy and processing power. Shared hosting are much more efficient in this because they allocate resources to sites on a per need basis. So, if a site is idling and another one is receiving heavy traffic from a social network (being Slashdotted, as they say), the system takes all the free resources (RAM, processor time, hard drive space) from the idle sites and routes them the loaded one. That’s why physical machines running shared hosting are almost always fully loaded and still manage to show a very good performance for all the sites hosted. VPS servers act like shared ones, but they have a drawback that makes them less efficient: they allocate a guaranteed amount of resources to each client that can never be rerouted to others, which leads to free resources for one client, while another is overloaded, just like a dedicated server. Still, shared hosting has an obvious major disadvantage: it’s only one physical machine. If more sites are hit by heavy traffic at once, the machine will be overloaded and unresponsive for all the sites. This is where cloud hosting shines: it has a much bigger pool of resources which it can allocate dynamically and practically instantly between all sites. And if the current pool of physical machines is not enough, the data center can always quickly (less than half an hour!) add more.

Resource and Energy Efficiency: While modern processors have power saving modes, most of other components don’t, so they use the same amount of energy whether loaded or idle. This is why it’s more cost effective and “green” to have them fully loaded at all times. A fully loaded cloud of 1000 machines can replace 5,000 or more dedicated servers loaded at only 50-60%, which is a lot of saved electricity and money.
