Grew to be awful

Service used: Shared - BASIC
We're a TV post house, all we do is send client their videos and delete. I used Verio for 10 years, until one day I uploaded a video file for a client (which we did for 10 years) and they deleted my account with no notice. Seems there was a change in policy. No problem, I deleted Verio.

The Absolute Worst Internet Service Provider in the World

It is amazing that these guy remain in business. Their 24/7 support is anything but. When you call tech support you'll get a yahoo sitting in a call center somewhere doing nothing but reading a script. They are perfectly useless. ...Read More

Expert Overview

Many great options for new or growing websites

Verio is a well-established company, and a wholly owned subsidiary of NTT Communications, which is a telecom company.  This has some perks, such as the fact that they are on a very reliable IP network through the telco portion of their business.  It also has some concerns for some people, specifically the fact that this isn’t their main business focus.

Overall, however, they seem to do a great job with hosting.  They have packages at all levels ranging from shared to dedicated and even have a nice e-commerce focused site for businesses that want to do sales online.

Verio is also focused on offering a lot of little extras, many of which are free.  Overall, this is a very nice hosting company that will allow you to grow your site from where it is now to as large as you can make it.

Uptime & Reliability

99.9% uptime guarantee

The uptime with Verio is quite good.  They offer a 99.9% uptime guarantee, even on their shared hosting packages, which is nice.  They also provide free virus, security and other benefits that will help keep your site up and running smoothly.

Overall, it is unlikely that you are going to run into any significant problems, and if you do, they will be fixed quickly so that your visitors don’t witness any downtime.

Features

Many hosting packages with lots of nice features available

You’ll have a lot to choose from if you select Verio for your hosting provider.  In fact, they have so many packages that it may become confusing for some people with little experience with web hosting.  Whether this is a good thing for you is all about personal experience and preference.

Their shared hosting options come in multiple packages depending on your specific needs.  Most of them are limited on the amount of disk space and bandwidth that you can use, but purchasing more isn’t too expensive.  They also offer an unlimited plan.

The next type of hosting that is listed is an e-commerce focused plan that includes some setup and help with selling yoru products.  This is a very easy to use option for anyone who wants to implement a nice e-commerce platform but doesn’t have the time or resources to create a custom one.  It includes free web design tools as well as some marketing help.

You can also opt for a VPS package that can be either Windows or Linux.  They offer advanced security, virus protection and backup options that will help to keep your site up and safe. You can add RAM or disk space as needed on their VPS packages, which makes it very easy to keep your site up and running.

Finally, their dedicated servers are all Linux based and come in a variety of configurations.  Their advertised configurations come in just 2, 4 and 8 gigs of ram, which may not be enough for some customers.  They are also limited in bandwidth to 1, 2 or 3 TB.  You do have full root access so you can install any application without issue.

Support

Good support and self-help available

The support teams are very qualified for helping all types of problems, which is essential for companies offering this many different hosting options.  One potential downside is that they don’t have 24/7 live support for all packages.  You can use their online ticketing system, which will get you the help you need, but many people prefer the live support.

They do have a nice knowledge base to provide some self-help tools.  Overall, the support they provide is good and will help to ensure you don’t run into any long term problems.

Pricing

Packages with price points at every level

With so many packages to choose from, just about everyone will be able to find the right option at the right price.  Most things that you need will be included in your base package, and any extras that you want area available for a little more.

Endless options for a great hosting experience
