Share Article

In an unexpected move, ProlimeHost was quoted to have decided to gear up for competing in the dedicated email and game server spaces. The rollout is expected to happen in a few weeks, as the dedicated hosting infrastructure is already an integral part of the core business of the company. These servers will be evenly distributed over all the three data centers owned by the company across the USA. Being one of the leading web hosting providers, this is a logical move for the company to grow in a related direction, feel the industry analysts.

An innovative company that has been prominent in recent past, http://www.ProlimeHost.com is reported to be all set to enter the dedicated game server as well as dedicated email server markets. While entering the dedicated email server space is not unexpected or unheard of for web hosting leaders, the waiting period from data center acquisition to such entrance is normally higher than the few short weeks that the company is now expected to take. Moving to the dedicated game server space is also seen as a strategic move by the technical officers of the company that the market had not expected to happen so soon.

When asked about the developments, the CTO of ProlimeHost, Tom Beck, concurred. “Yes, it is indeed a fact that we are all set to enter the competitive markets of dedicated servers for email and gaming. While making our major improvements in the past few months, we had a separate small team working to prototype and test these features. And our prototype has shown the proof-of-concept alpha run to be successful. So the beta launch is already around the corner. The full-scale solution is only a few weeks away and we are already looking forward to launch the services either together or back-to-back.”

When asked about the timing of the move towards diversification given the plethora of improvements that ProlimeHost has made over the past three months, Beck appeared to be calm and assertive. “We believe our technical team is strong enough to deliver all of these within the time we have dedicated towards this launch. The alpha tests have proved our technical concepts. And we have received a good number of requests from clients on dedicating some of our servers for emails and some for games. Given those requests, we know we have a market right with us that require these dedicated servers.”

The company is expected to host these servers over all the three data centers that they currently own in the USA. Given that the majority of their customers are from the USA, they felt hosting these dedicated game and email servers from the USA based data centers to be the right choice. And their existing infrastructure in these data centers supporting their core business of provisioning dedicated web hosting servers to their clients will provide them the backbone to host the new services.

This move was seen as a logical extension to the current business of the company by the industry analysts. The diversification of hosting portfolio found traction among a section of the analysts. “We have seen other hosting giants grow by diversifying their portfolio of hosting services, especially email servers. The game server space is newer with a less saturated market. This diversification normally happens over a period of time. In case of ProlimeHost, the diversification is happening almost back-to-back after their recent data center procurement and wide hardware enhancements. The evolution of Prolime in these niche dedicated server markets will be interesting to watch”, said a market analyst under a condition of anonymity.
