Interland Sponsors Free TechRepublic Guide to Help IT Buyers Better Understand Dedicated Hosting

October 5, 2004
ATLANTA (Oct. 5, 2004) ¾ Interland, a leading provider of online services and Web hosting for small and medium-sized businesses, today announced its sponsorship and immediate availability of a new resource guide for those with advanced hosting needs – TechRepublic’s Guide to Dedicated Hosting. Written and published by TechRepublic, a CNET Networks community for IT professionals, this is a free educational publication designed to arm those evaluating advanced dedicated hosting options with the information and professional advice needed to make smart IT decisions.

TechRepublic's Guide to Dedicated Hosting reviews nine elements those looking for advance dedicated hosting solutions need to nail down, and ten questions to ask of prospective vendors, before selecting a host. The guide also examines whether an organization should outsource DNS services, key factors in selecting Web server hardware, and addressing proper facilities when developing a disaster recovery plan.

“Many of the areas covered in this guide may seem simple, yet they are all too often overlooked when an organization is searching for a managed hosting provider,” said Glenn Hofmann, vice president of products and technology for Interland. “Because many struggle to select the most appropriate dedicated Web hosting provider for their needs we felt it was important to sponsor this definitive guide on the topic. This guide is an easy to use roadmap for those considering dedicated hosting.”

To get a free copy of the 21-page guide, which is part of TechRepublic’s “Real World IT” series, those interested can download it from Interland’s “Help & Advice” section found at or request a copy by call toll-free 1-800-335-1327. It is also available through the TechRepublic site by going to

“Teaming with TechRepublic on this publication is something we instantly knew we had to do because educated buyers recognized the value true experts in dedicated hosting can provide,” continued Hofmann. “As the importance of the Internet continues to climb more and more organization, regardless of sizes, will seek managed hosting solutions to meet their online needs. We see this guide as a way IT purchasers new to dedicated hosting can avoid some of the common pitfalls that lead to a poor hosting experience.”

Earlier this year Interland was recognized as “one of the most respected Web hosts" and rated as the “#1 Dedicated Servers Host Provider” by Web Host Directory, a neutral Web site that evaluates hosting products and services. Hofmann points to today’s announcement as an example of how Interland continues to live up to its leadership role in the dedicated hosting market place by ensuring those ready for dedicated hosting have the information the need to base their decisions on fact not fiction.
