UPtime & Reliability

Excellent Reliability

The stability that you'll get with this company is quite good.  The VPS hosting comes with a 99.999% uptime guarantee, which is excellent.  The other options all have very reliable hardware and are housed in state of the art data centers so you aren't likely going to run into any outages at all.  When reading through what actual users had to say, they all seemed very happy with the overall level of stability offered by this company.

Features

Detailed Feature Lists

This hosting company provides their customers with detailed lists of the features for each hosting package.  When you look at their shared hosting, for example, you can start by choosing the location that you want the server in.  From there, they will have four different package choices to pick from.  Each package is pretty nice for the price.  It starts out at 2 gigs of disk space and unlimited bandwidth, and the disk space can go up to 200 gigs, which is more than enough for most any site.  They also offer 350 1 slick installation apps, unlimited FTP users and many other great benefits for their users.

When you move up to VPS solutions you'll also get full root access through SSH, a free dedicated IP and 99.999% uptime guarantees!  They have four different VPS packages to choose from.  The entry level option starts with 20 gigs of disk space, and it goes up to 60 for the highest.  You are promised .88GHz CPU at the entry level and 1.96GHz for the high end.  RAM starts at 512 MB and goes to 1.5 GIG.  All options at this level come with a 30 day money back guarantee.

Dedicated servers can be either managed or unmanaged so you can pick exactly what you want.  These servers are all in their Dallas location so make sure to keep that in mind.  Here too they have four packages to pick from, but you can then do some configuring to make sure it meets your needs.  The entry level option, for example, is a 2.3 GHz Dual Core CPU, 4 GIGs of RAM and two 1TB hard drives.

Support

Easy to Reach Tech Support

The tech support is easy to use and they can fix most any problems without delay.  They have some good quality information on their site to help you learn more about their hosting services too, which can provide you with the ability to avoid problems in some cases.  Overall, you shouldn't have any issues working with their technical support teams.

Pricing

Average Pricing Options

The pricing with this company is pretty average across the board.  The shared hosting starts at $2.90 per month for the entry level package, which is a good price.  The highest level option here, however, is $16.90, which is a little expensive.  As you can see, you will need to be careful to ensure you are picking the package that has the best power for the price.

VPS hosting starts at $19.90 per month and goes up to $39.90 per month.  These are all pretty typical pricing points for what you get from most VPS companies.  The unmanaged dedicated servers start out at $129 per month and go up to $269 per month.  Of course, if you do any customization to the servers the prices may go up from there.

Summary

Very Nice Hosting Option

This is a great company to consider whether you're looking to host a small personal blog or a mid-sized business site.  They have a lot of options to consider and can meet the needs of most companies.  Whether you're in the US, UK or Switzerland this hosting provider cna more than meet your needs.

Pros:

  • 99.999% Uptime Guarantee for VPS Hosting
  • Great Data Centers
  • Locations in Three Countries

Cons:

  • While most packages are priced well, some are too expensive
  • No Cloud Hosting
