Mid-Size Web Hosting Service Provider
This is the Web Site Hosting Reviews blog review of MidPhase web hosting. MidPhase Hosting is a mid-sized web hosting service provider, that experienced heavy growth in 2003-2005 and now is maturing. MidPhase Hosting was founded in 2003, and skyrocketed on the basis of their technology, pricing and responsive customer service. This growth enabled two acquisitions in 2004 including the acquisition of ANHosting, a relative industry veteran. We previously reviewed ANHosting and follow the link for that review.

MidPhase web hosting like ANHosting web hosting, provides the CPanel control panel, which is popular in providing a clean clean and intuitive user interface, which also is widely familiar.
MidPhase Hosting says its mission is to "provide the absolute best web hosting by focusing on speed, price and reliability." MidPhase web hosting provides a lot of its shared and dedicated hosting philosophy on their site:
An idea and no money.
It started with an idea and less than two thousand dollars. It grew to thousands of customers, in hundreds of countries. From no revenue to millions in annual revenues.
In May of 2003, two college students working from different locations came together with the idea to start a web hosting provider that provided reliable solutions at affordable prices. At the time, there were plenty of hosting providers offering hosting services at under ten dollars a month, but there was a serious lack of business-reliable hosting in that price market, which is what became the focus for midPhase.
