Good hosting from a well rounded web services company

HostArmor is an all-in-one company offering a multitude of different web services such as shared hosting plans, dedicated servers, web design, and domain registration, not to mention countless of others. They are located in Running Springs, CA and have servers at two different east-coast locations in the United States. Founded by Vallen Lestat in 2011, HostArmor has been slowly chipping away at the market, claiming to largely draw customers from other hosting companies because of their advanced security features, among other things.

Uptime & Reliability

9

Hosting is quite reliable

They offer a 99.9% uptime guarantee along with an assurance that your support ticket will be replied to “within hours.” While that may not sound much, their reliability comes from their hardware and services. It’s pretty simple actually, better servers are more reliable. They cause less problems, require less maintenance, and go down less often. They may not offer explicit refunds for downtime but it’s because they don’t have any downtime to worry about.

I’m also extremely impressed with the ArmorPress feature, as I use WordPress a whole lot myself. It can make any WP page instantly secure, a huge plus in today’s world where hackers are looking to steal as much information as possible. I’ve had many WordPress and Joomla sites hacked before, so I know exactly how frustrating it can be, which is why ArmorPress immediately caught my eye.

Features

9

Full featured web services company

Unlike most other companies that just focus on web hosting, HostArmor is all-around. From website design to logo design, from SSD based Shared Hosting plans to top-notch dedicated servers, they have a wide ring of features and services that stand them out from other companies.

Their design services include logo designs, where they create a unique 3D design you will love. Their website design package actually comes with a logo included, making it a bargain. All of their website designs are mobile-friendly and responsive, a big plus in today’s market. They also offer HD Video Production and top-scale Android and iOS App Developments — all this is aside from their secure hosting platform, making them a true one stop shop.

If you’re looking for large shared hosting plans or reseller plans, HostArmor isn’t your solution. But if speed, security, and reliability is what you need, I’ve noticed them to be the best around. Their shared hosting plans begin at $4.99 and all run of extra fast Solid State Drives. The downside to that is that none of their shared hosting plans feature more than 2GB of space. They run on Intel E5 Hex Core processors on a 1,000 MBPS connection, making it blazing fast. Their dedicated servers are also great, including my favorites: an 8x i7 dedicated server running a solid state drive and an Opteron 6320 8x also running an SSD with 32GB of quick DDR3 RAM. If you run a WordPress site, you will surely be interested in their ArmorPress solution, where they prepackaged a multitude of WordPress widgets and plugins adding maximum security, preventing it from hacking attacks and spyware.

All of their hosting plans offer daily backups guaranteeing you that your sites content is safe every single day. Their data centers are few, but that’s because they are the some of the best in the industry: quality over quantity. One server running at 1,000mbps speeds with a solid state drive is better than 10 low quality servers, which is why HostArmor has been able to steal customers from major hosting companies.

Support

10

24/7 support available with response time guarantee

This company offers 24x7 ticket support for their clients. They guarantee a response time within a few hours in order to address client needs. Once you get in touch with them it seems that they are very willing and able to help you with just about any type of issue you might be having.

Pricing

9

Reasonable prices for the quality you get

All of their prices are on the low-end, even though they have some of the most expensive equipment available. Their shared hosting plans range from $4.99 to $8.99 monthly, a pure steal for premium SSD shared servers. They have many more dedicated plans, ranging from affordable $99 for a basic server (which still includes pretty decent specs, especially for the price), all the way up to your professional dedicated servers running 24 cores or 32GB of RAM (going up to $354/month). Whether you need a low end or high end server, they are the place to go. They also have great promotions including a free first month for shared hosting plans or $25 off your first month of a dedicated server, valuable savings that might seal the deal.

What’s impressive when it comes to their pricing is their costs for other products. Their website design is fully responsive, mobile friendly, includes a free logo, and is only $99 per page, even if you only get one page you still get a free logo design and at least one month of free shared hosting. Their video production is even cheaper, at $49 per 30 seconds of full HD video. While they don’t quote any prices for app development (as it all depends what you’re looking for and what platform), I assume it will match the rest of their company and be well priced and professional.

Summary

Good quality hosting for most customers

This is a very nice company to consider, especially if you may need to use any of their other web services.  While not perfect in every way, there is really very little to complain about with this company.

Pros:

  • High end hardware
  • Excellent web security
  • custom security for WordPress servers
  • Affordable web design and other features
  • Excellent new customer promotions

Cons:

  • No windows servers
  • No hosting in Europe
