GMO Cloud America Renews Webkeepers VPS


Low-cost Virtual Private Servers for the Technically-savvy

Newport Beach, CA – February 1, 2013

Technically sophisticated customers seeking reliable and flexible low-priced web hosting services received a boost today as GMO Internet Group subsidiary GMO Cloud America Inc. released a revamped Webkeepers service lineup with several new VPS plans.

About Webkeepers Virtual Private Servers (VPS)

The new Webkeepers lineup consists of five Linux plans and five Windows plans, allowing customers to get started from a mere $4.99 per month. Flexibility is enhanced by allowing allocated server resources to be increased as needs grow.

Despite the low-prices achieved by unbundling technical support from VPS plans, customers are still offered high-spec servers running in the state-of-the-art data center at San Jose, California, the heart of the Silicon Valley. With Webkeepers, customers can be assured that they are buying directly from the server owner, GMO Cloud America Inc.

Shadi Ammouri, GMO Cloud America’s Head of Business Development said: “Many of our tech-savvy customers want to have full control over their server environments, but do not require all the resources of a Dedicated Server or advanced features of Cloud Hosting. They favor VPS over traditional shared hosting due to the greater degree of control and customization. Our Webkeepers brand has indeed catered to this significant market sector for over 15 years, and with the new levels of performance and affordability offered by our new lineup, is surely set for further growth.”
