|First Place Web Host has been
hosting web sites and registering domain names since 1996.
Serving the state of California, including San
Francisco, Simi Valley, Sunnyvale, San Diego, Santa Barbara,
and Napa, we host some of the most visited sites on the Internet and have
been growing at an astounding rate since our inception. We heavily invest in our infrastructure to ensure that we provide top notch service for our business clients.
We host all our servers onsite. There are multiple onsite servers for load balancing and fail-over protection for our business and Web application system. If a server fails, others are there to automatically handle the load until the missing server is brought back online. Servers can be added and removed from the Web server farm in minutes using our custom built web interface application switch. If a server should fail our technology on call staff will be notified immediately.

someone, from anywhere in the world, can access your website

Web Host is rarely subject to hurricanes, earth quakes, and much
of the severe weather patterns that frequent the East & West
coasts. In outage situations, we're situated within a
"priority restore area", less than a quarter of a mile from our
regional power company's corporate headquarters - that's no
We regularly receive calls from
hosting companies & webmasters that are looking for a more
secure physical environment where their servers can be safe. If you live in a hurricane-prone area,
your server doesn't need to - and shouldn't! You need
maximum up-time, and we're here to bring it to you!
