In general, it is trustworthy

I wrote my last review directly from my impression. Later, I combed through the relevant emails in the past month, and the summary is as follows, I think this description should be more objective: Technical questions were answered...Read More quickly, but sales questions were answered a little slowly. When the VPS was first created, I proposed a change request related to technical security, and the technical support was soon completed. After I deployed my website to VPS, it has been running stably without any accidents. At present, it has been running for nearly a month. In general, it is trustworthy. That's all I think of right now.Less

Very fast VPS. I usually use its IPv6. In our school, the connection speed of IPv6 is very fast. I like it very much.Of course, iPv4 is also very fast. Many students around me are using it.

I've been on Evolution with a Production VPS for just over a year now. What's cool about these guys is you can be eligible for a free VPS, which is what I'm using. It's always quick and reliable when I need it and I can't remember...Read More the last time I had downtime. If that's what you get for free, imagine what you can get if you buy! I highly recommend them.Less

Expert Overview

Hosting for Sites, IRC & Game Servers

Evolution Host, or EVO, is a hosting company that is focused on high quality services.  They market their hosting primarily to 'gamers' who are looking for places to run their game servers, websites and chat programs.  While this is where they focus their marketing, they will be happy to host other types of sites as well on their quality VPS hosting servers.

In addition to VPS hosting they also offer IRC hosting (a type of online chat) and game servers.  Game server hosting is getting extremely popular today due to the huge growth in online gaming now days.  Having a server for gaming allows you to install any game you are interested in playing and make your own mods to it for endless fun.  Having your own server also tends to help increase response times for a better gaming experience.

Uptime & Reliability

Great Uptime

The uptime with this company is quite impressive.  While they don't seem to have any type of uptime guarantee, there is no doubt that they offer a very stable environment.  Their network connections and power in the data center are all redundant and they use only high end hardware for their servers.  If you choose to add the DDoS protection to your server it will be even more stable.

Features

High Quality Hosting Features

The features offered by this company are quite impressive.  For normal site hosting they only offer VPS solutions so you can't use shared hosting or fully dedicated options.  The VPS solutions are unmanaged, which means you will have complete control over what is installed and what you do with the server.  Of course, you will also be directly responsible for any issues that crop up with anything but the hardware.  This is an ideal option for tech savvy users who are confident that they can run a web server properly.

You can choose from a wide range of game servers made for specific games including Minecraft, Half Life 2, Team Fortress and many others Their game servers are powerful enough to run these games smoothly even with multiple players from around the world.

The IRC hosting services allow you to host your own custom chat services.  This is popular for online gamers who are looking to have a private area to chat before, during and after their games.  They also allow you to have a server for your IRC bots, which can help you to manage your chat environment and make it more fun.

Support

Quality Tech Support

The tech support with this company is quite impressive.  They work hard to ensure everything is working on the back end at all times, and they are quite successful at this.  They will respond to issues quickly and get you up and running as long as it is something on their end and not a setting issue that you are responsible for.

Pricing

Very Competitive Pricing

The pricing is very reasonable at all levels.  You can get a nice VPS for just 4.99 Euro per month and the top of the line prices is only 39.99 Euro per month.  For the server specs and other details of the packages you will quickly see that this is a very nice deal.  It really does make getting a VPS affordable for just about anyone looking to run a website.

The game servers start off very cheap (2.99 Euro per month) but you can choose extras that can cause the price to go up.  FOr example, if you want DDoS protection it is an extra 4.99 per month.  You can also raise the price by adding more RAM, which some people may need depending on how many people will be playing on the server.

User Friendly

Mostly Easy to Use

Their site is easy to navigate and they are happy to help you if you need anythign for your hosting experience.  There is really no way around the fact that their services are made for people used to working on computers though, so keep that in mind.

Also, their VPS is unmanaged so you won't get any free help setting things up.  They are only responsible for keeping the hardware and network connection running smoothly.

Summary

Great Hosting for Gamers

If you are a gamer and want to run your own game server or website, this is a great company to consider.  Even if you aren't a gamer and you just want a good VPS hosting solution, you can find it here.  Most people who use this company are very with the services they are getting.

Pros:

  • Quality Hardware
  • Options for Game Servers
  • Options for IRC Hosting

Cons:

  • No Managed Hosting Options
  • No Shared or Dedicated Servers
