ServInt introduces Blog Server Line to meet unique hosting needs of blogging community

ServInt, a pioneering provider of managed web hosting for businesses worldwide, today introduced the ServInt Blog Server Line to make it easier than ever to launch and manage blogs hosted by ServInt.

ServInt designed the new offering in consultation with its blogging customers to determine the feature set that best meets the needs of this rapidly growing market segment. New blogging customers using the ServInt Blog Server Line will experience special user guides to simplify and streamline blog launch and management processes. Customers also will get quick, easy access to cPanel, WordPress and Akismet spam filtering — as well as thousands of compatible plugins.

“Our customers helped us craft a service offering that gives bloggers the features they want, with simpler access to those features,” said ServInt Founder and Chief Executive Officer Reed Caldwell. “However, ServInt is about much more than hosting technologies and blogger-friendly feature sets. It’s also about the customer-facing human resources we’re allocating to this important Internet business community. While our Blog Server Line staff will be focused like a laser on the specific needs of bloggers, they will leverage the same enterprise-grade customer care and engineering resources we use for our largest clients.”

Caldwell also said the features introduced with the new Blog Server Line are the latest example of the Company’s ongoing effort to make its services as blog-friendly as possible. “ServInt has been setting the standard for blogger customer service for years. Now, we are taking a step toward developing blog-specific technology and service platforms that scale faster, perform better and deliver optimal value for our blogging clients.”

Caldwell pointed to ServInt’s experience with leading sports blogger Brooks Melchior of Sports by Brooks www.sportsbybrooks.com as an example of how ServInt takes care of its blog customers. In November 2009, when the news surrounding Tiger Woods’ personal life was broken by Melchior, the resulting global traffic surge threatened to cripple the popular sports site. “Instead,” said Caldwell, “our engineering team quickly implemented a custom solution that quadrupled the server resources dedicated to the site.” Consequently, Sports by Brooks not only survived the massive traffic spike, but actually performed better than ever before.

Sports by Brooks has been a ServInt customer since 2002 and has become one of the world’s largest, independently owned general sports blogs.
