Site5 Expands Services in Bucharest, Romania

site5(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Site5, a worldwide leader in shared, reseller, cloud, and VPS hosting, announced today it will begin offering hosting services in Bucharest, Romania, tapping into growing demand for local Romanian hosting from Web designers and developers.

The Bucharest location will offer a wide array of Site5 services, including shared, reseller, and VPS hosting. For many customers, localizing in Romania will offer better placement in results for local searches, faster local load times due to physical server proximity, and an increase in inbound links from local websites.

“Site5 has always prided itself on its international reach, and expanding further into Europe by offering hosting options in Romania is another step in providing our customers with high quality hosting locations for their websites. We look forward to offering additional hosting locations as we locate the right partners,” said Tom Sepper, Chief Operating Officer of Site5.

Site5 now offers hosting on five continents, including two locations in Europe, comprising 19 locations. With today’s announcement, the company’s worldwide hosting locations include Chicago, IL; Dallas, TX; Los Angeles, CA; Miami, FL; New York City, NY; Phoenix, AZ; San Francisco, CA; Seattle, WA; Washington, DC; Montreal, Canada; Toronto, Canada; Vancouver, Canada; João Pessoa, Brazil; London, United Kingdom; Amsterdam, The Netherlands; Bucharest, Romania; Sydney, Australia; New Delhi, India; and Singapore, Singapore.

Existing Site5 customers can move their websites or accounts to the Romania location for a one-time $5 fee.

Earlier this month, Site5 announced expanded benefits for its United States-based staff, including 100% coverage of the base plan price for medical insurance, dental insurance, and vision insurance. Site5 has more than 100 team members worldwide, and all team members receive at least 20 days of paid time off per year, which increases to 25 days after 3 years.

Site5 also recently announced a partnership with Comodo to offer SSL certificates. The certificates include free installation and are available to existing customers through Site5’s Backstage account management platform. Customers can choose from Comodo PositiveSSL, Comodo PositiveSSL Wildcard, or Comodo EV SSL. Certificates purchased through Site5 offer by default 4096-bit RSA keys, which substantially improves the security of encrypted communications.

Site5 offers a wide range of hosting services, including shared, reseller, cloud, and VPS hosting. Based on a hosting philosophy that emphasizes performance through the most updated hardware platforms, a low ratio of customers to servers, and quality support, Site5 has grown substantially since its founding in 1999.
