Great service so far!

I spent a few day's looking at various alternative providers that could cover my needs. I needed to move from a VPS to a cheaper solution as my sites no longer have much traffic. I had never heard of Stream101 before, but I found ...Read Morea few recommendations. So I gave it a go. The support-staff was very helpful and pro-active to move my sites from the old server. 100% uptime so far, and no problems at all (been with them for just over a month now).Less

Stream101,
Thanks for the advise. I think we have definitely improved on the social media front, but wanted to introduce a new system to everyone for our outage and maintenance events: https://status.stream101.com

Thanks for hosting with us Frank!

Expert Overview

Audio Streaming & Web Hosting Company

Stream101 has been in business since 2002 offering online media streaming services.  They are well known for providing the hosting and other technical resources needed for things like online radio stations and podcasts.  Since 2008 they have also been offering traditional web hosting solutions to both their audio streaming customers and anyone who needs good hosting.

The company does a good job with all the different services they offer, but this review is focused on the web hosting aspect of their business. At this time they only offer shared hosting solutions, which does put some limitations.  Fortunately, most people will only ever need shared hosting so this is not too much of a concern.  The hosting is based in the US and they have a lot to offer to their customers.

Uptime & Reliability

Good Reliable Hosting

The hosting with this company is very stable.  They have a policy that they will never utilize more than 50% of a given server's resources, which is var important for this type of shared hosting.  It helps ensure there are no slow load times or even outages related to overselling, which is a problem with many other companies. This is likely why they need to charge a little bit more for each package.  They don't have an uptime guarantee.

Features

Simple Hosting Features

When you look at the hosting features available you will see that they are quite simple. You can opt for a basic option that has 5 gigs of disk space and 50 gigs of bandwidth, a mid-tier option with 10 gigs of disk space and 100 gigs of bandwidth or their largest option that has 20 gigs of disk space and 200 gigs of bandwidth.  All their hosting packages come with DDoS protection, which is very important today.

You'll also get free setup, 24/7 tech support, 100-400 MySQL databases, a shared SSL certificate and more.  While the hosting is basic, it is more than enough for just about any personal site or small business page.

Support

Good Tech Support

The tech support from this company is very responsive.  They are available 24/7 and know how to fix any issues you are going to run into.  Since the hosting is so simple, however, most people won't run into any issues unless they are related to the way they configure their own site.  There is also a good knowledge base to learn more about the hosting services they provide.  Most of what is in this knowledge base, however, is about their media streaming services.

Pricing

Slightly Overpriced

The prices are a little bit high compared to what you'll get with other hosting providers.  The entry level option is $5.95 per month, mid-tier is $8.95 per month and the large package is $14.95 per month.  These aren't outrageous prices, but they are a little high.  They also don't advertise any type of discount for paying annually.

Summary

Simple but Good Hosting

The hosting with this company is pretty simple, but it will certainly get the job done for most basic sites.  If you're using Stream101's media streaming services, it likely makes sense to host your site here too just to keep everything in one place.

Pros:

  • No Overselling of Servers
  • Simple Hosting Options

Cons:

  • Slightly Overpriced
  • No VPS or Dedicated Servers
