Global Virtual Opportunities (GVO) Reviews and Expert Opinion

A few words from Global Virtual Opportunities (GVO)

Your Search For A Web Hosting Site Ends Here
Two of the biggest challenges faced by business and website owners are deciding what kind of hosting they require and which web hosting service to use. There are many web hosting sites to choose from and it can be extremely confusing deciding on the right provider for your particular needs.

Depending on which type of hosting pack...Read Moreage you choose, there may be many thousands of websites using the same server and I.P. address, or, if you are a really serious business, you may elect to have a dedicated server on which only your domains will be hosted.

Everyone needs hosting in some form or another and because of this growing industry, web hosting services are springing up all over the place.

While choice can be a good thing, it does make choosing a good webhosting provider very difficult, but we're here to help.

GVO webhosting is used by many of the top marketers online and for a good reason. With a long background in successful internet marketing, Joel Therien, CEO and founder of the company knows exactly what web business owners want and need.

When researching web hosting sites and choosing a web host there are certain very important criteria to consider:
Price - What do you get for your money?
Is there a limit to the amount of domains you can host?
Are there any restrictions on bandwidth?
Do you get access to any technical support and is this an additional cost?
Is live support available 24/7 every day of the year?
Do you get access to the Control panel?
Are there any "extras" included in the hosting package?
As you can see deciding on the kind of hosting you require and the web hosting service to use is something which requires serious consideration and you need to choose wisely.

Here at GVO we are a long established and reputable hosting company, with a highly regarded reputation within the marketing industry. We own our own hosting data center, the land on which it is located, all the fiber optics, software, code and programs.

What does this mean for you? Lower cost, better service, greater value and obsessive support!

Jacqueline Mart,
Until yesterday when the servers went down and have been down for almost 2 days now. Granted it was an ice storm and things happen, especially with nature. Yet, aren't there backup generators powerful enough to keep servers online?

Victoria,
GVO is experiencing an outage at our Schertz Datacenter because of severe weather:
There is ice everywhere which is very unusual for South Texas.

You can see how bad the fiber is out in the Texas Area here
https://outage.repo...Read Morert/us/spectrum/map

Joel, CEO, will keep all current updates here please
https://www.facebook.com/joelftherien/posts/265633068267269

UPDATE 7:10pm Central Standard Time Tues Feb 16th:
Weather permitting Spectrum and level 3 is coming on site to see what is wrong with our fiber and do what is necessary to fix it. It could be (WE DON'T KNOW UNTIL THEY COME) as simple as a crack in the fiber line from all the cold and heavy ice.
We are very sorry about the issue. Texas has not seen a storm like this in 50 years.
1. Fuel trucks were not allowed on the road at all by law
2. Companies said no to dispatching techs because roads are like skating rinks.
3. Even the local grocery store was open for 2 hours with minimal staff.
4. 80% of homes in San Antonio are are on and offline with power.. You can see that here https://outagemap.cpsenergy.com/

This is heart breaking, the last time our server room went offline was about 7 years ago when a backhoe from a lot of new construction in our business park accidentally cut our fiber line.
It is suppose to warm up tomorrow, weather permitting all the right people will be on site to fix our fiber.
From the bottom of all our hearts we are doing our very best to get us back online.

Thanawut Kaenchan,
Thank you so much to hearing from you. I just come Thailand in Feb 14 2021. And when I get here. I went the site and the website was down. I didn't know what's going on. I could not contact anybody. I sent to email but no response. I send messages via Facebook no response. I am very worry.

GVO went over the Cliff

The site I had on GVO finally came back up this Wednesday morning after being down since last Friday. I thought I was using a decent company until this chaos came up. I had only 12 local business clients and my personal service to...Read More them has been exemplary enough that they are staying with me. But he down time made me go and look at the overall GVO picture. And I agree:
>> webinar service has steadily gone downhilll never stable enough for me to use.
>> too many upsells and too much spam
>> overuse of templates made for poor ranking
Goodbye GVO I learned a lot some good some bad

Expert Overview

Quality Hosting & Marketing Services

Gogvo, (an acronym for Global Virtual Opportunities) originated in Quebec, Canada over ten years ago.  The company’s growth led them to seek out a new facility and resulted to a move to San Antonio, TX in 2007.  Owning their own data center and providing customers of practically every size options on a variety of products and services, including marketing services.

Uptime & Reliability

Good hosting at their own data center

Gogvo makes a strong case for their reliability; they own the data center and its’ contents outright and thus have the greatest amount of control.  Included on their informational page is a note that they have their own generator in case of power failure, something no reseller can offer.  One thing I would’ve liked to see is a “Tier x” rating or a partnership with another facility offering redundancy, but these steps represent significant investments that ultimately reflect in the cost to the customer.

Features

Good quality hosting with lots of other options

Web hosting is a big focus for Gogvo, they offer several different packages and highlight their approach to operations as a value-added offer to their customers, emphasizing that low cost is not the only consideration that a business should make when choosing a hosting company.

All web hosting packages include unlimited disk space and bandwidth, subdomains, email and FTP accounts, MySQL databases, and access to the Cpanel control tool.  Free account setup and activation is included in a monthly price that seems quite competitive. Gogvo also offers 24/7 support every day of the year, free site builder and management tools, no contract requirements and 99.9% uptime on all packages.

One feature that so far has been unique in my experience is the “marketing” tools.  One of the claims Gogvo makes is that they don’t block senders of bulk email.  While bulk email is certainly a valid marketing concept, I personally find it most of the bulk mail I receive quite close to, (if not outright) spam

Reseller services are offered with generous allotments; the firm also offers “affiliate” programs that offer lifetime commissions at various levels as a means for customers to add to their income with what appears to be very little effort.

Oddly, VPS service wasn’t listed, but the dedicated server section stated that Gogvo offers “dedicated cloud servers” rather than dedicated physical servers.  While some may view this as a misnomer, I believe that it is a valid approach to the needs of many companies who need Infrastructure as a Service, aka IaaS.

Support

Multi-Lingual Tech Support

Gogvo offers year-round 24/7 live support in English, with Spanish, Russian, Polish and Portuguese support available for limited hours. One item that I did not find as part of a service package or on the terms of service page was backup frequency and availability; most hosting companies seem to either list backup as the sole responsibility of the customer or at least encourage customers to maintain their own copy of backup data.

Pricing

Reasonable pricing options

Overall, prices seem to be very reasonably priced, considering the numerous “unlimited” services provided, as well as the 24/7 service that is included with all sales.

Personal hosting is offered at $5.56 per month and includes one domain; for $11.96 month the package is increased to 20 domains.

Reseller packages all include unlimited terms, but pricing is done per customer specifications; something that could definitely be defined a little better on the site.

Dedicated cloud servers are offered at “regular” levels from $59-$159 per month, with a “basic” package that include fewer management options ranging at a flat $25 monthly rate.

Additional memory, storage, CPU, IP addresses, etc are available for each package at reasonable rates.

Summary

Good for most types of sites

While I came away with a few concerns regarding Gogvo’s services, the company seems to offer a lot of product and service for the money spent.  Based on their clear customer-service approach, I would be confident that any concerns could be addressed prior to engagement.

Pros:

  • Competitive pricing on all services
  • Generous space, bandwidth and software

Cons:

  • No backup policy
  • Service can be terminated without cause or notice according to ToS
