With headquarters in Sweden and other offices in Malta and Ukraine, Internet Vikings is one of Europe’s biggest hosting providers. It offers a range of high-quality hosting products to businesses large and small. Customers come to Internet Vikings for dedicated server hosting, cloud hosting (including private clouds), managed hosting, SEO hosting, and iGaming hosting.
In choosing a hosting service provider (HSP), you have to make sure the services on offer are a good fit for you and your company. So, what are the hosting qualities that customers most often need? Internet Vikings strives for the best possible performance in all key areas and beyond.
There are a few qualities you always want from a hosting service provider, no matter what your precise needs or how much you’re willing to pay. However, the lower the price point, the more likely you are to compromise on these qualities. Let’s look at some of them.
Speed: given a choice, nobody ever wants a website with slow-loading pages. That’s especially true of e-commerce websites, where customers might abandon or change their minds if a page doesn’t load quickly. Response time is related to the proximity of servers, among other things. Internet Vikings cloud servers deliver a sub-70ms response time to 80% of the world’s population. That’s the type of speed that maximizes sales.
Security: closely related to reliability is security, since some cybercrimes like DDoS attacks can bring websites down. Internet Vikings offers private cloud hosting, which is inherently safer than public cloud hosting and gives customers total control over infrastructure. With public clouds, customers share the same resources, making security incidents and data breaches more likely. Private clouds allow more peace of mind for businesses that hold a lot of sensitive data. A third possibility is hybrid clouds, which combine the high security of private clouds with the shared resources and cost-effectiveness of public clouds.
Reliability: downtime is undesirable for any site, but it becomes critical for retail and iGaming websites. Internet Vikings aim to limit downtime to an absolute minimum with its fully redundant hosting solution. This is a form of service back-up where “redundant” hardware and connectivity come into play if a website is taken offline. Website hosting is spread across multiple servers and data centers to ensure a site stays up.
Scalability: admittedly, not everyone needs scalability in a hosting service, but it’s essential to many businesses. Internet Vikings offers e-commerce businesses and iGaming companies an unlimited scalable solution with resizing assistance always on tap through its DevOps team. Increases in demand or service level can be easily met through hardware upgrades.
SEO hosting is one of Internet Vikings’ main products and areas of expertise. But who needs it?
In the modern world, businesses of all sizes must pay attention to SEO and their search engine ranking. For large companies and organizations, this is a little easier because they’ve often established a reputation and level of trust, which helps SEO. But they still have to compete with each other in many instances. For smaller businesses or startups, the road to high search engine rankings can be a long one, but SEO hosting helps. It can help many companies.
Internet Vikings is one of the biggest hosting providers in Europe and offers a massive collection of 160,000 unique IP addresses to customers. It holds approximately 1200 different C-Class IPs, 70 B-Class IPs, and 35 A-Class IPs. In terms of SEO, this means the company can create multiple sites with different IP addresses from around the world and develop a backlink profile for your main website that elevates its search engine position.
To complement its C-Class hosting strategy (C-Class addresses are the focus of search engines), Internet Vikings offer other SEO products and services like expired-domain auctions and content writing. Expired domains accelerate progress with search rankings because they come with search-engine history and, very often, SEO-boosting backlinks. The ability to delegate website design and content creation allows customers to focus on the running of their business. Strong content is a vital part of SEO strategy, but it takes a lot of time to produce without writers on your team.
In addition to creating content sites and building backlinks, Internet Vikings offer a brand protection service. This is also part of SEO strategy and is achieved by filling top search-engine positions with your own sites by various means. It prevents competitors or affiliates from exploiting your brand name and profiting at your expense. They typically do this through intelligent use of name-dropping keywords and/or paid search results.
As an iGaming HSP, Internet Vikings continue to go from strength to strength. It provides the necessary high-end hardware and technology for online casinos and game developers to offer customers a smooth, uninterrupted gaming experience. Dedicated servers use SSD and NVMe hard drives to deliver blistering performance.
Internet Vikings brings many possibilities to the table for iGaming customers, including private cloud hosting, hybrid cloud hosting, dedicated physical infrastructure, reliable 150 Gbit/s DDoS protection, and web acceleration via a high-performance content delivery network (CDN) across all major continents. Internet Vikings is also ISO 27001 certified in information security management, which gives extra peace of mind to customers holding and processing sensitive data.
Whether it’s in the popular iGaming hub of Malta, where the company has an office, or among the growing markets of Asia, the Americas, and India, Internet Vikings can deliver the speed, security, scalability, and reliability that iGaming operators need in order to stay competitive. Our company is an expert in iGaming hosting outside of Europe, where markets are less saturated, and can help customers establish a presence in other continents.
