Liquid Web Sponsors the Perl 5 Core Maintenance Fund


September 22, 2011 -



We are excited to announce that we've recently made a significant donation to assist in the continued development and maintenance of the dynamic and powerful Perl programming language. With a clear commitment to innovation and development, we are certain that the $10,000 donation toward to Perl 5's Core Maintenance Fund (Perl 5 CMF) will help to ensure the continued advancement of what it considers a powerful resource.

At Liquid Web, we've developed much of our software using perl and continues to do so. The programming language serves as an integral tool for the continued development of our existing systems such as its billing, support and monitoring programs.

Liquid Web Founder and CEO, Matthew Hill, speaks on the importance of the Perl Community:

--"Giving back to the Perl community is something we've been interested in for some time. As Liquid Web continues to expand and grow, we find the need for more developers proficient in perl grows in kind. Supporting Perl's continued excellence ensures that important programs that have proven invaluable to Liquid Web's success will continue to perform to our specific needs.

Perl Announces Liquid Web Sponsorship

Karen Pauley, President of the Perl foundation, was delighted with the news of the donation. "This investment in Perl's future from Liquid Web will go a long way to help maintain the viability of Perl 5 as a platform for the many businesses that depend upon it and will deliver a positive impact upon the entire Perl community," stated Pauley upon hearing of the donation. The Perl Foundation is encouraged with success stories such as that of Liquid Web and other companies that have been built on the programming language's strong foundation and is excited to continue moving forward with them.

August 23, 2011 -

-Clocking in on INC. Magazine's annual top 5000 as the 1,703rd fastest growing company in the United States.

We just added an impressive fifth consecutive year to our run as one of INC. Magazine's 5,000 fastest growing companies in the United States. This honor is considered one of the most prestigious for young businesses in the United States as it represents the future of industry; a hopeful look at those navigating some of the most unfavorable economic conditions in the country's history, and finding a way to thrive.

2011 Award

Liquid Web Founder and CEO, Matthew Hill, reflects on the company's fifth consecutive selection to the INC. Magazine 5000: --"We're proud to be included on INC. Magazine's list once again. As I look at the list I see a number of peers and greatly respected companies that I'm proud to see Liquid Web's name next to. As we move forward with our expansion in Arizona as well as continuing to develop our stable of innovative web hosting products, I look forward to building onto this five year honor."

The list, which takes into account each company's industry, revenue, number of employees and location, is based on percentage of revenue growth over a three-year period. Since our first inclusion on INC. Magazine's celebrated list, the company has ballooned from $7.7 million revenue annually to $31.1 million, representing an incredible 404% growth. As the company's revenue has grown, we have also amplified our workforce, developing a reputation as one of Michigan's top employers. As our expansion across the United States takes hold, we're expecting to see this steady growth not only continue, but to accelerate commensurate with our expanded resources.

Liquid Web Donates PCs to Underprivileged Families


August 05, 2011 - We recently had the opportunity to give back to our community by joining forces with the nonprofit Information Technology Empowerment Center (ITEC) to deliver over 300 PCs to its efforts to provide Information Technology training to those who do not have it readily available. The ITEC plans to use these computers to train transitioning adults acquire the work skills they need to remain competitive as well as providing programming workshops to interested youth.

ITEC Executive Director, Kirk Riley, elaborates on how our donation will assist the non-profit's cause:

--"Liquid Web's generous donation to ITEC will enable us to expand our work in Greater Lansing to build the computer and IT skills needed for tomorrow's jobs. Working with Liquid Web and our many other partners, ITEC aims to inspire children and adults through challenging creative experiences, and seeks to build confidence in students' sense of technical proficiency."

Having spent the past five years climbing INC 5000's Fastest Growing Companies ratings, we hope to continue to find ways to use our success to give back to the technology initiatives that feed into our development, as well as the community that supports us. This PC donation precedes an expected upcoming donation of a significant amount to the Perl 5 Core Maintenance Fund, an organization founded upon the continued research and development of the script that much of Liquid Web's infrastructure is built upon. We view gestures such as this as an opportunity to communicate a philanthropic message while simultaneously investing in our future.

Introducing the 96GB Smart Server


July 12, 2011 -

We're excited to introduce you to the latest advancement in server hosting technology! We've just added our first batch of 96GB Servers to our Smart Server line, already the industry standard for creative and flexible hosting. By combining the power of dedicated server hosting to the easy-scalability of cloud hosting, Liquid Web has taken a good thing and made it better with our 96GB Smart Servers which have achieved, by far, the best I/O performance available, thanks to our extensive engineering.

In addition to 96GB of RAM, each of these servers contain 32 cores (at 2.0GHZ each, 64.0GHZ total), writes at over 3 Gbit/s and reads at over 4 Gbits/s. This is integral to the 96GB’s unparalleled I/O performance which allows these servers to operate larger operations at previously unheard of speeds. Unlike most large dedicated servers, Smart Servers’ flexible daily billing and cloud-enabled features allow you to use the space and incredible speeds provided by our 96GB Smart Servers to its maximum value with minimum wait time between scaling, migrations and creating new server instances.

New 96GB Smart Server Features:

  • 96GB RAM
  • 32 Cores operating at 2.0GHZ each
  • 3.3+ Gbit/s writes
  • 4.0+ Gbit/s reads

The ease of scaling seamlessly from a small server instance to literally the most powerful server hardware available has come to set Liquid Web’s Smart Servers apart in the hosting market. With 96GB Smart Servers, we have raised the ceiling on our own definition of “most powerful server.” This seamless scaling, up or down, can all be done as simply as a mouse click or automatically leveraging our complete API. We believe users shouldn't have to sacrifice performance to utilize the power of dedicated hosting.

All Smart Servers are available with your choice of Ubuntu, CentOS or Debian. Liquid Web’s world renowned Heroic Support® is optionally available on all Smart Servers. You can learn more about the new options athttp://www.liquidweb.com/SmartServers/pricing.html or by calling (800) 580-4985.

Introducing Smart Servers

Liquid Web has invented a proprietary technology called Smart Servers that blend the best of managed dedicated server hosting with the flexibility of Cloud Computing. Liquid Web Smart Servers are dedicated servers combined with powerful cloud computing features - all guaranteed by Liquid Web 24x7 Heroic Support.

Now you don't have to worry about the challenges inherent with public cloud offerings like instability, contention for I/O, uncertain hardware infrastructure and enormous individual usage charges for every item.

The Benefit of Smart Servers

Liquid Web Smart Servers are complete familiar dedicated servers exclusively allocated to you, with zero contention for resources! This eliminates the security concerns that come with a shared environment like many other cloud providers. With Smart Servers, you will never have to compete for I/O with another user or be uncertain about the underlying hardware that your application resides on. Liquid Web Smart Servers allows users to select the exact hardware configuration they desire just like ordering a traditional dedicated server!

The Smart Server Provisioning System was engineered by Liquid Web's Software Development Team in Scottsdale, Arizona and Lansing, Michigan. The Smart Server Provisioning System allows for powerful cloud enabled features including:
  • Automatic Migrations
  • Create one or many Dedicated Servers in Minutes
  • Flexible Daily Billing so you only pay for what you use
  • Advanced Networking Made Easy
  • Clone and Resize Servers with ease
  • Bandwidth Included

With Liquid Web Smart Servers, the hassles of a traditional Dedicated Server are eliminated.

*Liquid Web Smart Servers requires a valid Credit Card and monthly billing setting active on your account.

Greetings from the Sonar Monitoring Team - Liquid Web Monitoring Notifications to keep you informed!


September 08, 2008 -

If you are one of our Managed customers, you'll soon be hearing a lot more from our Sonar Monitoring Team. In an ongoing effort to keep you updated with what's happening on your server, soon you'll start to see "Liquid Web Monitoring Notifications" from members of our monitoring staff every time we respond to an issue with your server.

In most cases, these notifications will be informational to explain what has occurred and how we fixed the problem. It will not be necessary for you to respond to these notifications because the issue will have already been resolved. We feel these notifications are important so that you are aware of all the activity that is happening on your server and so that you can proactively identify potential bottlenecks and plan for future growth.

The new notifications that we rolled out this week will hopefully bring our clients closer to our Sonar Monitoring Team, allow for better communication, and help us find solutions more quickly. If you have any questions about the services the monitoring department offers, or how you can take better advantage of these services, open up a ticket, and let us know!
