Lunarpages: Our Review

The name Lunarpages may conjure images of circular space stations and mysterious monoliths, but the advanced technology they offer is available right here on Earth. Their hosting solutions run the gamut from the basic to the advanced, including the option that’s all the rage—private cloud hosting.

With six data centers located in cities across the country from San Diego, California, to Ashburn, Virginia, you’re more likely to experience increased speed as your site will likely be hosted in the data center nearest to you. In fact, one service Lunarpages offers in both its California data centers is colocation hosting, allowing you to use their data center space for your servers and equipment, saving you the expense of building your own.
