Colohouse, a prominent data center colocation, cloud, dedicated server and services provider, is merging TurnKey Internet’s hosting and dedicated server offering into the Colohouse brand and services portfolio. This strategic move comes from TurnKey Internet’s acquisition in 2021 to align with Colohouse’s broader compute, connectivity and cloud strategy.
With the integration of dedicated servers and hosting services into its core brand portfolio, Colohouse aims to enhance its ability to meet the diverse needs of its growing customer base. Including TurnKey Internet’s servers and services is a testament to Colohouse’s dedication to delivering comprehensive and impactful solutions for its customers and prospects in key markets and edge locations.
Colohouse will begin offering hosting services immediately available on www.colohouse.com
Products: dedicated bare metal servers, enterprise series dedicated servers, cloud VPS servers, control panel offerings and licensing
Colohouse’s dedicated servers will be available in these data centers: Miami, FL, Colorado Springs, CO, Chicago, IL, Orangeburg, NY, Albany, NY and Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
Client Center: The support team will be available to assist customers 24/7/365 through a single support portal online, or via email and phone, as well as Live Chat through colohouse.com
Compliance and security are a top priority for Colohouse’s customers. In fall of 2023, Colohouse will have its first combined SOC audit for all of its data center locations, including dedicated servers and hosting. This will be available for request on its website upon completion of the audit.
When I accepted the job of CEO at Colohouse, my vision was, and still is, to build a single platform company that provides core infrastructure but also extends past just colocation, cloud, or bare metal. We recognize that businesses today require flexible options to address their IT infrastructure needs. This is a step for us to create an ecosystem within Colohouse that gives our customers room to test their applications instantly or have a solution for backups and migrations with the same provider. The same provider that knows the nuances of a customer's IT infrastructure, like colocation or cloud, can also advise or assist that same customer with alternative solutions that enhance their overall IT infrastructure, shared Jeremy Pease, CEO of Colohouse.
Jeremy further added, “The customer journey and experience is our top priority. Consolidating the brands into Colohouse removes confusion about the breadth of our offerings. Our capability to provide colocation, cloud, and hosting services supports our customers’ growing demand for infrastructure that can be optimized for cost, performance and security. This move also consolidates our internal functions, which will continue to improve the customer experience at all levels.”
All products are currently available on colohouse.com. TurnKey Internet customers will not be impacted by transitioning from the TurnKey Internet to Colohouse. All Colohouse and TurnKey Internet customers will continue to receive the industry's best service and support.
Colohouse will be launching its first-ever “Black Friday Sale” for all dedicated servers and hosting solutions. TurnKey Internet’s customers have incorporated this annual sale in their project planning and budget cycles to take advantage of the price breaks. The sale will begin in mid-November on colohouse.com.
Colohouse provides a digital foundation that connects our customers with impactful technology solutions and services. Our managed data center and cloud infrastructure paired with key edge locations and reliable connectivity allow our customers to confidently scale their application and data while optimizing for cost, performance, and security.
