We spoke to them, asked a lot of questions and they created different scenarios for us. We have eventually chosen to get a Cloud server, as they explained us that in case we need to migrate it in the future it will be easy - they just need to power it off and then migrate as is to another place. They mentioned they used VMware and this makes it easy. We have been with HC for almost 2 years and based on our experience i recomend them for Cloud hosting and as a managed service provider.Less

Expert Overview

All type of hosting available

Host Color was founded in 2000 in Europe.  In 2003, however, they moved their company to Delaware where they are currently still located.  The company is privately owned.  They market themselves as being a company that is focused exclusively on hosting, implying that many other hosting companies today are dividing their attention between a variety of services.

They have multiple data centers, the largest of which is in South Bend, Indiana.  They also have facilities in Amsterdam and Bulgaria.  This helps them to place their servers closer to the actual visitors who will be accessing them, which improves loading speed and reliability.

The company offers virtually every type of hosting out there including shared, cloud, VPS, dedicated servers and collocation services.  They make it quite easy to upgrade to higher level packages when needed, so this is a great option for those who are running a growing website.

Uptime & Reliability

Offering a 100% Uptime SLA

Host Color has a lot of great features to help give you stable hosting.  To show just how confident they are, they offer a 100% uptime guarantee to all their customers.  This covers power and network outages, of which there should be very few since their data centers have fully redundant connections to various telephone companies and backup power options.

Features

Great features with custom options

You’ll have access to a wide range of different features with this company.  They have quite a few nice packages to choose from, but then they also give you the option to create your own custom hosting plan.  This is a really nice feature for those who know exactly what they need.  You can pick and choose from the features so that you’re not paying for anything you don’t use.

Their extensive feature list includes lots of apps such as guest books, calendars, ad management tools, polls & surveys, photo sharing apps and all the top content management software.  They also have anti-spam and antivirus options available.

Support

Great technical support around the clock

You can contact technical support via phone, a ticketing system, live chat and email. All of these options are available 24/7/365.  They also have a ‘buy and try’ option where you can cancel your service and get your money back if you aren’t satisfied.

They do have some nice knowledge base articles and other similar self-help options, but it isn’t really well organized or easy to access.

Pricing

Good prices with options to create your own package

All of the packages that are offered from Host Color are priced right around the industry averages.  One really nice perk that sets them apart from other companies, however, is that you can create your own custom hosting solution.  This can help you to lower your price and give you the exact features that you want.  The custom hosting option is even available for shared hosting, which is a great option for many people, especially those who just need basic hosting and no extras.

Summary

Excellent hosting for almost any site

This company provides really great hosting for just about any type of site.  They have a lot of options to choose from and their customers seem very happy with the service that they get overall.

Pros:

  • 100% uptime SLA
  • Multiple data centers around the world
  • Custom hosting package options
  • Great technical support

Cons:

  • Lots of options for hosting, may be confusing to newer webmasters
