Overview

A Global Provider of Web Hosting Opportunities

DotBlock are a large company who provide cloud hosting services right across the world from a headquarters that is based inside the US. The main hosting plans you will see are Virtual Linux Servers and Windows Servers for small and large businesses. With a host of support and contact paths to choose from, and competitively priced plans you have everything you need under one roof.

Reliability

Cloud Based Security and Reliability

As with any Cloud Based Service, Security has to play a major part and DotBlock help make you feel confident with the level of security they provide by offering redundancy backups and a 99.99% uptime guarantee.

Features

Easy Features to Scale Up and Down

As DotBlock offer a cloud based system its easy to scale up and down whenever you need to, and you can customise the type of hosting you need. Whether you are looking for 1 core processor or 28 core processors, or 5GB of RAID storage or 310GB of storage, you can tailor it to suit your website needs.

Support

Perfect Support and Contact Detail

Live chat is available on the site in two locations, the bottom of the site and in the sidebar widget. They seem to only run this through office hours (USA time) but do allow you to leave a message during other hours. Social media icons are in the footer, along with a blog, knowledgebase, support ticket area and contact page.

A toll free US number and an International number are present, but no sign of a direct email address. If that doesn’t bother you too much then DotBlock are the perfect choice with very little letting them down in the support department.

Pricing

Plans Climb From Cheap to Very Expensive

Pricing comes down to the kind of plan you want, with the cheapest Linux Virtual Server costing a mere $9.95 per month, but scalable up to $559.30 per month. You will also see a handy timer on the payment option which will tell you how long you need to wait before your cloud hosting is available to use.

User-Friendly

Everything You Need at Your Fingertips

The site has been designed with the user in mind so that they can clearly and efficiently find the level of service that they desire. Being a cloud host, the pricing and feature selection process can be confusing and messy but DotBlock have overcome this problem with an easy slider and radio buttons where you can switch between managed or unmanaged hosting.

Add to that the fact that they provide you with cPanel and you have everything you need to smoothly navigate through the site itself and through the backend setup.

Summary

Linux and Windows Hosting Plans for Everyone

DotBlock may not be for everyone but their advanced cloud technology makes it easy for anyone to set themselves up with budget to expensive hosting plans on either Linux or Windows. If you are looking for plenty of features with a flexible host that provides easy scalability then DotBlock check off all those points. Support channels and contact methods are above average but they could do a bit more in providing details on reliability.
