Our business is music, well the 'online side of music'. We're an agency owned by the most famous rock band from south-east Europe named Parni Valjak. We handle their online communication (social and web). The target market for our services are all musicians in the region that need to build a solid online presence. The plan is to expand our services to other musicians in the region including online content and offline activities.
Can you describe your business and what you do?
As a big rock band from south-east Europe with a 400,000 strong fan base on Facebook and over 40 years of operation our production standards are really high so our online communication standards need to keep pace. We wanted a reliable company to handle the hosting of our website. Having a website that will work flawlessly is obviously the #1 goal of every company, band or individual, but one of the main problems is that finding a good server and hosting provider can be tough.
What CMS / Application are you hosting?
All of our websites are built exclusively on Wordpress. Why? It's open sourced, is supported by a great community and is regularly updated
What kind of problems did you experience at your previous host?
When we started the project of building a new website we didn't have a previous hosting company, but we had a company that managed all our online needs (they had their own servers). We didn't have many technical problems with them (e.g. site downtime), but rather we constantly faced communication problems since they were really busy and did not serve all our needs on time.
This was one of the reasons why we decided to build our own team that will serve both our band and also other musicians in the region.
How do our services assist you in managing your online business?
When we decided to work with EuroVPS as our hosting partner we wanted to be sure that we could can focus our effort on generating content, building our fan base and communicating with them. We didn't want to waste time servicing our servers and panicking about something not working. Since joining EuroVPS we've found that everything works well and all issues are handled quickly and professionally.
How do you feel about the ongoing managed support?
Having a managed support included in your server is great since you know that you have a team of trained professionals who can handle all kinds of request and problems and that they'll fix them quickly.
What performance benefits did you gain moving to us?
We don't really have anything to benchmark the performance against, but generally everything runs as well if not better than it did with the private service we were using before.
How have your costs changed since you joined EuroVPS?
Well with the previous company the hosting was included as part of the whole deal, so in terms of cost, joining EuroVPS has meant we had to pay bit more...I guess you can't really compete with free when it comes to pricing! But when we sum everything up, we think it's been better for us to pay a little for great service that will handle all our problems, than having had a free service that was unreliable most of the time.
In three words, how would you describe us?
Excellent Support & Servers
Why would you recommend EuroVPS?
We would definitely recommend EuroVPS to everyone who wants great service, and who don't want to worry about server side problems.
