we offer to all our clients to
 help you succeed and grow your business and online presence:

At SurfNet, We Provide A Dedicated Account Specialist to Serve Your Every Need.

All specialists not only know our products like the back of their hands, they also are trained technicians. We believe that it is very hard for someone to assist you on the products we offer if they do not completely understand them. Not just reading words on a page of what the service provides but also knowing how all the features work and most importantly being able to advise on which products will work best for you.

Whether you are a startup looking to operate online or have an existing online presence (big or small), our account specialists can work with you to best advise how our services can help and make you money.

We Provide Multiple Affiliate and Reseller Programs.

We offer anyone the ability to link to our site and make (one time or recurring) if someone purchases from your referral. For existing clients, we have a complete affiliate network. Whether you are running a membership website, selling downloadable or hard good products or video streaming, you can have your own affiliate program which helps with sales and marketing and allows you to get more traffic and business at your site.


Full Control Is What SurfNet Services Are All About.

While we offer a managed and unmanaged flavor to almost all our services as well as a turn-key and al-a-carte pricing plans. It is of our belief that if you want to manage it yourself you can. From our top tier hosting control panel software, to full control over dedicated and co-located servers to full administration control (by way of our GAI – Global Admin Interface) you will have complete control over all aspects of your services at any time. If you need help, it’s only a phone call away.

We have even white labeled many of our services and control panel software to select companies that needed the infrastructure but just did not want build it themselves after weighing all the pros and cons. So whether you are small or large operation, our systems and services can be used and or integrated per your needs to give you just the solution you are looking for and to ease the burden and get you online very quickly and making money!

SurfNet Owns and Operates Their Own IP Transit Networks and Servers.

This is a very nice feature to have with a provider as it guarantees we have own ‘skin in the game’ (so to speak). Unlike many companies that claim they are ‘web hosts’ or ‘providers’ when they really are just reselling someone else’s service with their logo on it. We have invested a lot of money and resources to build our network over the years. We only use top tier servers (HP or Dell) and network equipment (Cisco, F5Networks, HP Atlas Fiber) to ensure your content and sites have the very best viability the internet can provide - Worldwide.

Multiple Solutions All Under One Roof.

Many businesses that want to operate online or are already operating online and are unhappy with their current provider simply think “I need a new web host”.

At SurfNet we can tell you from many years of experience that unless you are the biggest of the big on the internet and have millions of dollars to spend on employees, software licensing, project managers and consultants you need more than just a plain old “web host”. Most web hosts do just that --- web hosting. Some also provide domain name registration. The only issue with that is that is okay if you just have a few page informational website you want to put up and have a few people see. If, like most online sites you wish to make money with your site this requires either finding a provider that offers all the tools and services you need and can choose from in order to help make your site a success or opting with the method others do and that is having 10 vendors all integrated into your site to make it complete and functional. The problem with that is all vendors operate differently, have different software and site requirements.

At the very worst doing it this way simply will not work. The best case scenario would be it will work but look like a bunch of third party vendors put their code on your site and will not provide you with the experience you or your end users need for success. Plus, since most services all have to work in conjunction in some way, if one thing goes wrong you are trying to figure out who to call or who is at fault for your systems and services not working.

At SurfNet, we can take most if not all of these problems away. While we certainly have many clients that just use one or two of our services (per their needs), we also have clients that use several or more and fully integrate all their operations with us. Whether you are looking for web hosting, payment processing, video streaming, electronic downloadable or hard good product sales, programming, consulting, broadcasting, video chat or an integration of one or more of the above SurfNet is here to self.

All our services are made custom and made to be modular. This means we can customize just about anything to meet any need since we have developed and own most of our own applications.

We Believe Support and Customer Service are Critical For Online Success.

We provide support services to our clients for any service offering we have. We also provide support services to our clients for ‘their’ end users as well if requested. This takes a lot of the work off of the site owners hand and allows them to concentrate on what they do best and that is make, market and sell their products. Some clients prefer to handle their own end user support which is perfectly fine. But for those that do not, we are here to help and have many programs and options available. Do not forget to inquire about this option with an account specialist if it is something you believe your business can benefit from.

SurfNet Offers Incredible Value For the Price - Hands Down.

We include free extra features that many competitors consider "add-ons" for an additional cost. You might find "the hottest deal" elsewhere, but a cheap web host will always come back to bite you.

You're Not Just Buying a “Web Hosting Plan” With SurfNet, We're Creating a Partnership.

We want your business to succeed because when you're successful, we're successful. We are committed to working together so that you'll never want to go anywhere else. We have kept track of all client retention statistics and are proud to say that we are leaders in our industry for client retention over the past decade.

Our Multi-Tiered Network Infrastructure Located Around the World, Boosts Our Reliability Scores Compared To Many Of Our Peers.

Our primary data center at Equinix in Chicago, IL is home to multiple network providers including Level 3, NTT, ATT, MCI, Savvis, Sprint,, Comcast and Switch & Data. In addition, our Chicago location is home to three major financial and futures exchanges, including the Chicago Stock Exchange, the Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE) and the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (the “Merc”). Our staff on location at the data center ensures that all issues are dealt with promptly and proper maintenance is performed 24/7/365.

Similarly, our UK Datacenter at Blue Square in London was built from the ground up, and boasts multiple internet backbone connections for utmost redundancy.

Finally, our newest datacenter, located in Helsinki Finland has its main connectivity through EUnet, one of the largest IP networks in Northern Europe. EUnet has 622Mpbs connectivity directly to NYIIX in New York, in addition to peering with both North American and European networks at peering points throughout Europe.

All SurfNet Servers and Network Equipment Are Specially Customized To Deliver Supreme Performance With Latest-Generation Technology.

We periodically verify our servers to ensure they are abuse-free, running smoothly and secured. With our guaranteed low number of sites-per-server ratio (shared and VPS hosting), we always make sure to allocate multiple servers in advance as the need increases, thus avoiding delays in setup.

Our ecommerce applications are constantly optimized and upgraded with features to keep up with client needs and demands.

We also offer multiple choices for server locations ranging from Chicago, Illinois and Seattle, Washington in the U.S where we run our own data center operations to Helsinki, Finland outside of the U.S. as well as London in the UK. Clients can choose from any location for core service operations or for redundancy. We support both failover redundancy or load balanced redundancy.

Our Main Goal Is To Support Better Business Decision Making.

When we say Business Intelligence we are referring to computer based techniques used in spotting, digging-out and analyzing business data, such as sales revenue by products and/or departments, or by associated costs and incomes. Our business intelligence tools, built right in to many of our services, provide historical, current and predictive views of business operations.

Common functions of the technology are reporting, online analytical processing, analytics, data mining, business performance management, benchmarking, text mining and predictive analytics. We use our DSS (decision support system) which not only uses this BI but also our management team in our offices to assist you with reading and working out what the data means and how it can help your business. This typically translates to competitive intelligence because it will assist you in staying on top and ahead of your competitors.
