The Planet Enters Managed Hosting

HOUSTON -- The Planet, the global leader in IT hosting, today escalated its hosting leadership role with its entry into the managed hosting arena. Under a new moniker designated exclusively for its managed hosting line of business Planet Northstar Managed Hosting – the company has developed a rigorous proactive methodology – not just reactive support – that helps customers leverage technology to support and grow their businesses. Small- and medium-sized customers can take advantage of enterprise-class IT managed hosting services – starting with just two servers – backed by a dedicated team of seasoned IT professionals who are personally accountable for their success.

Most managed hosting companies provide a single choice in service – it’s either managed hosting or managed hosting – and nothing beyond. The Planet now provides customers the power to choose precisely the type of hosting they require. Whether it’s self-managed dedicated hosting, self-managed with optional services or a fully managed hosted solution, The Planet offers customers the power to choose without being forced to make sub-optimal choices in infrastructure or services.
