Sydney SSD VPS now available!

A few days ago, I posted that our SSD VPS were launched in Hong Kong. Today, I am happy to tell you that we are now live in Australia as well!

The servers are located in Sydney using the Equinix datacenter and the SoftLayer network. The hardware is, as always, latest gen E5 CPUs, Intel Enterprise SSDs, DDR3/DDR4 RAM etc and bandwidth allocations will be the same as in our other locations. Currently, only the VZ- SSD VPS are available, but we are working on KVM as well.

We now have: Los Angeles, Amsterdam, Stockholm, Hong Kong and Sydney available for deployment. We can't say where we will be expanding next yet, but suffice to say it will be a very interesting location as well. Still a few months away though so this will be it for now.

Shoot us an email if you have any questions!

Hong Kong SSD VPS available

It's been a while since I've gotten the time to write here. We have been so busy running things and making sure everything is on top, that we forget how important informal customer interaction can be. I am going to be working to change that now.

I'm writing this post to let you know that we recently launched our SSD VPS in Hong Kong. It's been a long time since we've been wanting to expand to Asia, so we are very happy about it and hopefully you are as well. As always, the hardware we use is brand new, E5 CPUs, Intel Enterprise SSDs, etc - it's one of the things we deeply take care of. We always make sure we are on the newest as well as most stable hardware. We never, ever, use old generation hardware. You might think that I am writing this with some marketing ploy - but for the most part, the reason of using the latest gen hardware is that we get a little bit more breathing room on performance as well. If our customers are not having performance issues, we have a lower amount of support work, lower amount of unhappy customers and so on.

Moving on, I'd like to tell you more about our Hong Kong location. We are using SoftLayer's network there and are located in the Mega-I datacenter. Both are top quality. You can read more about this on our datacenters page. Basically, if you are looking to serve Asian traffic, you can trust us with it now. To begin with, the VZ- SSD VPS plans are available, but we are working on adding the KVM plans to the mix as well.

As always, if you have any questions, feel free to shoot us an email!

A new year, a new blog and some Bitcoins

It's the first day of the New 2015 Year, and the team at HostHatch would like to wish a very happy and healthy new year to all of our customers and readers!

For the past 3 and a half years HostHatch has been in existence, 2014 has been the best year overall. We surpassed our financial expectations, we hired new talent, we opened our own physical office, we added Los Angeles and Stockholm to our locations (in addition to Amsterdam), we upgraded all of our plans, we launched the new storage line, we worked with some really interesting clients....I can go on but I think this is a lot about what "we did right". We also made our fair share of mistakes and learned to overcome them to grow better.

There is so much we want to bring to our customers in 2015. Starting with a new blog, where we can communicate some of our thoughts to you. We will be building the roadmap in a few days. But to say the least, we will be doing our best to build a better platform for you. For today, we are launching this new blog. In a few days, I will be sharing with you the entire story of how HostHatch came into existence - specifically, how 3 entrepreneurs came together.

That can't be all....can it? Indeed, it is not. From today, we will also be accepting Bitcoins as a payment method, in addition to Paypal, credit cards and bank transfer. I know a lot of people have been waiting for this. There will be a very good promotion going out today - keep a close eye on our social media accounts. And, last but not least - HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
