AIT Re-invents Dedicated Hosting Market

January 28, 2004
(Fayetteville, NC) -- AIT, Inc. ( has introduced a series of options that reflects the variety within this vibrant sector of the industry. “Everybody else has defined dedicated hosting by price, but someone looking for a dedicated solution is like the person looking for a truck,” said AIT’s Chief Executive Officer Clarence Briggs. “Do they want lightweight or heavy-duty? A utility vehicle or luxury? Is performance measured by economy or by power? Our approach is offering the customer a value-based proposition.”

AIT’s structure revolves around a tiered system of plans that are structured to appeal to specific market segments. The base dedicated server starts at $49 and is suited for the developer or web professional in search of dedicated and reliable “ping, power, and pipe". Another plan features the Ensim WEBppliance software for small businesses and hosting resellers who want automation and easy management of common hosting tasks. And, there is the I-MHIP Enterprise, a fully managed plan for hosting resellers and ISP’s that provides "point and click" administrative control of a server, plus many free features that users can resell to their customers and grow their business. “This puts the customer behind the wheel in deciding what’s necessary for driving a hosting plan,” said Chief Operating Officer, Kirk deViere. “They determine what’s important to them, and pay only for the resources they actually use and want.”

These resources include a minimum of 1000 GB of bandwidth, varying levels of server support and management, plans for both Linux and Windows operating systems, among others. “Businesses, particularly those in the SME space, need the flexibility to tailor a plan that suits them instead of the other way around,” said Briggs. "What we're doing is what happens when a service provider does things right. This is not a short-term special; there are no gimmicks, no hidden fees or fine print, just value for the customer."

Founded in 1996 in North Carolina, AIT, Inc. provides web hosting and e-commerce services to more than 190,000 domains in 107 countries. AIT is recognized among the fastest growing technology companies in North America, and is the only hosting company listed on both the Inc 500 and Deloitte & Touche Fast 500.
