GARMTECH virtual servers
Quality hosting with fast load times
This company has been around for quite a while, and is focused on providing high quality hosting to people marketing to the Latvian people. They are physically located in Latvia and most of their site is in this language, though they do have a translation in English available. They claim to really focus on proving the fastest hosting in the region, and from what I can tell they are able to meet those promises. The company offers shared hosting, VPS as well as dedicated servers. They also provide domain name registration and SSL certificates to those who need them. I was unable to identify exactly where their data center is, but from the text on the site and on other sites that I was able to find that mentioned this hosting company, they seem to have reliable hosting at a good data center. It is most likely that they don't own the data center but just lease space in it.
Uptime & Reliability
Very reliable hosting
This company offers a 99.99% uptime guarantee, and they also use a redundant DNS system so there aren't likely to be any DNS outages. The fact that they use high quality servers also helps to reduce the likelihood of outages. I was not able to find any actual user comments saying that they had either a positive or a negative experience in this area. This is likely due to the fact that most customers would be speaking Latvian, which makes it hard to find user reviews. When it comes to hosting, however, no news is typically good news.
Many great features for quality hosting
You'll get just about all the features you could ask for when it comes to high quality hosting. First of all, you get to choose from either Windows or Linux hosting for shared and VPS options (dedicated you can put whatever you want up.) In addition, you'll get solid state drives at all levels, which helps to dramatically improve site response times. Beyond that, there is a long list of features available including PHP5, Tomcat 5, Multiple script options that load in one click, directory password protection, and much more. From what I have been able to tell, if there is a hosting feature you need, this company has it available to use.
Support page in Latvian only
While it seems like they provide 24/7 technical support, the page is only in Latvian. Even when you select the English option it still displays all in Latvian, which is not very helpful. They do have live support, but it is listed as away so it is not an option off hours. You can submit a ticket to get support, and they also have an extensive knowledge base available in four languages. One of them is English, where they have 95 unique articles. .
Typical pricing levels for good hosting
The prices that you pay are fairly typical for all the different options that they have. The prices are in Euros, but it is simple to see that you aren't getting ripped off no matter which of the hosting packages you choose. While they are clearly not trying to compete as the lowest priced hosting company on the web, thy are not out of line with their prices either.
Great hosting for those targeting a Latvian audiance
If you are targeting customers in Latvia or the surrounding area, this is an excellent hosting company to work with. They seem to provide high quality hosting at all levels, and you'll have plenty of choices to ensure you are getting exactly what you need. Pros:
- SSD for all levels
- Easy to upgrade when needed
- Great uptime guarantees
- Support mostly speaks Latvian
- Hosting focused mostly in Latvia and surrounding area
