I have no idea why this company is having bad reviews on this website but they have been extremely helpful with me.

Technical support is great they would do whatever you tell them and install any plugin you request. They even offered to fix an issue with my ticket system that they have nothing to do with. I'd definitely recommend them.Less

AVOID LIKE PLAGUE

I have been a client for 11 years. server.ecepts.net was my server. They started out much like liquidweb is now, reliable, excellent equipment, English speaking telephone support 24/7 that was super helpful.

A few years ago, ju...Read Morest stopped all phone support.

After that they shut my server completely down while I was on vacation (after being with them for 9 years and never missing a payment, they shut my server and all sites down over a $65 payment that didn't go through on a credit card).

In June/July 2018, my service was down/spotty for 45 days while they corrected a server node issue.

Over the last 2 months I have been migrating away from them to another company, but I needed to do it one site at a time (and updating each site as I go).

Today, again my sites were down & could not log into root. You cant all anyone, so you open a ticket, or chat support.

After I get on with chat support, bingo sites are working now (what the hell was the problem... we will never know).

I moved my companies from the Servint platform due to their poor performance, and not being PCI complaint. Servint attempted to charge me an additional 30 days, after I moved from them.

I stayed with them almost 8 years, but last year was really terrible: very very poor support. So I decided to go away.

It's sad: Servint was on of the best hosting providers several years ago. Not recommended anymore.Less

We've been with ServInt for over seven years and it was great at the beginning, good speeds, great customer service, competitive pricing, but in the last year or so things have dramatically changed. The site is experiencing horrib...Read Morele lags, is frequently down, prices have gone up and customer service has been lacking.

We are switching hosts now, because we are trying to attract some ad revenue, but which advertiser in their right mind would invest into a site that has trouble with on time and when it's on has speed issues worse than a slug stuck in molasses in winter...?

A sad development for a once great hosting company...

Expert Overview

One of the oldest privately owned web hosting companies

Founded in 1995, this is one of the oldest and most established hosting companies still around.  Impressively, they are still privately owned and run by the individual who started them (while still going to school), Reed Caldwell.  He has helped take his single web server operation from a simple hosting company to one of the top hosting providers to businesses in the world, serving customers from over 60 countries.

The company focuses primarily on high end websites, offering VPS and managed dedicated hosting services.  They also provide top of the line technical support to help their customers keep everything up and running smoothly.

Their servers are located in their data centers, which are in Virginia.

Uptime & Reliability

Very stable hosting at all levels

Servint’s hosting is very reliable, though they don’t have any SLAs or guarantees, at least none that are widely marketed.  They have a high end data center to house all their servers, and whether you get a VPS or dedicated server, it will be set up and configured well for optimal stability.

In addition, there have been very few outages reported by current and former customers, which is a very good sign.

Features

Many nice features focused on higher end customers

Most of the features they offer are tailored to meet the needs of their higher end business customers.  For example, they do most of the management for their websites, so businesses can simply focus on their main jobs.

They don’t have too many different packages to choose from, which makes it easier for people to pick what they need without too much confusion.  Of course, this may be limiting to those who want to be able to select only what they need.

In addition to providing their web hosting services to many businesses, Servint also has a charitable division that offers free hosting, email and web training to non-profit organizations.

Support

Exceptional technical support available 24/7/365

Servint knows that they need to be able to provide the best technical support to their customers, and that is just what they do. They have live email, chat and phone support available 24/7/365.  When you speak to one of their local technicians you can be confident that they are an expert who will be able to help get your issues fixed fast.

Pricing

Fair pricing based on the packages provided

While the prices may seem high at first, they are about average for the industry once you look at what they are offering.  Even their VPS services start at around $50 per month, but the specs on the servers is well above average.

It is clear that they aren’t trying to compete based on having the lowest price, however, but that is not a bad thing given that their target audience is primarily medium to large sized businesses.

Summary

Excellent hosting for larger customers

Overall this is one of the best hosting companies around today.  It is extremely stable and has been serving their customers for a very long time.  Customer support and high quality services are clearly a priority for Servint.

Pros:

  • One of the oldest privately run hosting companies
  • Focused only on high quality hosting
  • Provides free services to many charities
  • Operating a 'green initiative' to help eliminate environmental footprint

Cons:

  • No shared hosting plans
  • Prices are higher than many other VPS services
