UK-based web hosting company 20i has opened its first U.S. data center, in Dallas, Texas, bringing the company’s total number of data centers to four. Powered by a combination of autoscaling cloud hosting, proprietary technology and professional hosting assistance, 20i is planning to disrupt the U.S. reseller hosting market primarily dominated by cPanel hosting providers.
In contrast to those who use cPanel, 20i clients do not face the same performance limitations and license fees as those who use their own hosting technology and control panel called My20i. This is in contrast to cPanel, which can only be hosted on a single server, whereas 20i automatically scales the number of servers based on traffic demand.
20i will be offering unlimited ‘Reseller Hosting’ to the United States of America. Their reseller hosting clients aren’t restricted by third-party license costs or technological constraints, so they may offer limitless sites with unlimited bandwidth, webspace, and databases across Linux, Windows, and WordPress-optimized platforms.
Clients around the world can choose to host their sites at 20i’s UK data center or their brand-new Dallas, Texas data center. “The location of our first US location was a decision we gave a lot of thought, and ultimately, we identified Dallas as a key central internet hub for the US,” said Lloyd Cobb, Director at 20i. “The data center we chose is the most interconnected building in Texas – it’s got great latency to both East and West coasts as well as into South America.”
‘Dallas is Just the Start’
“I’m thrilled that we’re giving our resellers in the UK the chance to expand into new markets and resellers in the US the opportunity to build their business without any limits placed on how many websites they can host,” said Tim Brealey, founder of 20i. “They’ll be able to offer their clients a hosting platform that’s unbeatable by current U.S. providers and manage both US and UK hosting from a single control panel – unavailable anywhere else.”
20i co-founder Jonathan Brealey added, “With this U.S. expansion, we can now compete with the biggest companies and still remain true to our principles of excellence in technology, innovation and support. And do all this while remaining independent. Opening our data center in Dallas is just the start, and we couldn’t be happier. We welcome everyone who joins us on this exciting journey.”
