ich kann nur warnen. Finger weg von solchen unseriösen Anbietern.

es ist fast nicht möglich zu kündigen, schriftliche Kündigung werden einfach ignoriert und beim Telephonkontakt einfach aufgelegt. Emails werden auch nicht akzeptiert. Finger weg von solchen unseriösen Anbietern.

Service used: VPS - V-Server Linux Level 3
First of all, I am a Computer Science student so I don't have need of extensive support. I have already rented many servers from many different hosting companies.

Now on Strato: excellent uptime, good performance, kind of cheap...Read More

Expert Overview

Large Hosting Provider

Strato is a large hosting provider with a proven reputation.  They serve over 4 million unique domains and 1.6 million websites.  This is on their over 60,000 servers.  They have these servers spread out over six European countries as well, which helps to improve the speed and service that their customers are going to get.

In addition to hosting services they also offer site building services, options to help you sell products online and online storage services.  Whether you are looking just for hosting or you will be using all their services, they will do a good job at keeping you satisfied with your orders.

Uptime & Reliability

Very Stable Hosting

The hosting with this company is very stable and they will keep the sites you run very safe and reliable.  This is largely because they seem to focus mostly on VPS solutions, which are naturally more stable than other options.  In addition they added a lot of solid state drives, which again are more reliable than traditional hard drives.  They also offer a 99.99% uptime guarantee so you know you'll be getting the great service you need.


Quality Hosting Services

The hosting features are quite nice across all their packages.  They offer a free month for users who are just signing up for any of their hosting options.  They also offer solid state drives on just about all servers, which will help to improve the speed at which your sites are running.  Strato uses Plesk for the cPanel, which is a popular option that can meet the needs of most people.

When looking through the hosting packages you will see that there are a lot of options to choose from.  They do split them up nicely so they are pretty easy to understand.  Some areas, however, they really don't give you enough information to make an educated decision.  For example, with the VPS servers they say that they provide you with 2 CPU vCores, but don't mention how many GHz's each vCore is.  This is somethign that you'll need to know to properly decide what package to choose.




Easy to Reach Tech Support

The technical support teams are quite good and they are able to help you to get your sites up and running the way you want them very fast.  If you run into any trouble, the support team can be reached through a ticketing system that they reply to fast.  One bad thing is that this company does not seem to have a FAQ or knowledge base at all.


Average to Low Pricing

The pricing with this company is either average or below average at all levels.  When signing up for most packages you will get a free month of service, which is quite nice.  For the entry level VPS you will pay just $8.99 per month as long as you pay for an annual contract.  If you just want to pay month to month it is still the same price, but without the free month at the beginning.  The highest level VPS is 39.90 Euro per month.



Very Nice European Hosting

If you need hosting anywhere throughout Europe and the surrounding regions, this is a great company to consider.  They really seem to put their customers first and have done a great job of keeping up with the latest technical advancements.
