DATAGRAM IS RANKED ONE OF THE HIGHEST HOSTING SERVICE PROVIDERS AMONG THE WORLD’S MOST POPULAR BLOGS
NEW YORK, NY– November 20, 2008 – Datagram, the Internet Solutions Company, announces today its ranking as one of the top two hosting providers for the top 100 most popular blogs, otherwise known as ‘Rock Star’ bloggers. In fact, Datagram and one other hosting company are twice as popular as any other host on the top “Rock Star” blogs list, ignoring free blog hosting (for example, BlogSpot) and in-house hosting (for example, AOL’s blogs). The survey was conducted by WhoIsHostingThis.com, a free service that informs visitors which companies provide hosting services for specific websites; Technorati provided the top 100 blogs rankings.
“Datagram embraces the role blogs play on the Web in democratizing the dissemination of opinion, entertainment, and information,” states Alex Reppen, CEO of Datagram. “Today, advertisers, journalists, and even Fortune 500 firms leverage the ability to quickly blog and distribute information. Datagram is proud to offer a secure and reliable hosting environment to support blogs’ growth and cultural influence.“
Datagram currently provides hosting services to two of the three top-ranked and best-known blogs on the Internet, including the wildly popular Manhattan media news and gossip site, Gawker.com, and the highly influential, political news site,The Huffington Post,.
“Choosing a hosting provider often feels like a trivial decision for bloggers starting out. But all it takes is one post to hit a site like Digg.com, and the traffic spike could take the blogger’s site offline,” commented Richard Kershaw, who recently bought WhoIsHostingThis.com and is the Managing Director of Quality Nonsense Ltd. “It’s vital for anyone serious about blogging to make sure they’re hosting with a company that can scale up as their blog grows.” Datagram offers a flexible, scalable hosting environment for novice and expert bloggers alike.
