The quasi-dedicated hosting offered by MechanicWeb is not unique. Stablepoint’s
managed dedicated business web hosting plans offer a very similar service at a similar price. For its services, Stablepoint uses dedicated CPU VPS from Linode and DigitalOcean. As with MechanicWeb’s quasi-dedicated plans, it also offers fully managed cPanel plans with LiteSpeed Enterprise, Redis, malware scanner and WAF. Since root access is withheld from customers, it is not a managed VPS account. Technical support will install any custom software with prior approval from technical managers. Stablepoint offers hardware that is almost 40% slower than MechanicWeb, but has access to more global data centres. You should consider MechanicWeb if you need services in the UK, Europe, or the US. Stablepoint’s plans are best suited for destinations such as Canada, Northeastern and Midwestern United States, Latin America, Australia, Singapore, Malaysia, India, and Japan.
