Netherlands Based Hosting since 2012
AbeloHost has been around since 2012, which is not too long but still long enough to prove that they know what they are doing. They offer a wide range of different hosting solutions including shared hosting, VPS solutions and dedicated servers. They are based in the Netherlands and focused on providing high quality hosting with great security for their clients. They also offer co-location services to all their customers.
They have lots of custom options to choose from so you can get exactly what you need for the price you want. This is a very nice option for many people, and while there are some things that aren’t quite as good as other hosting providers, they will do a good job for you.
Uptime & Reliability
Very Reliable Hosting
The hosting with this company is very reliable. They have a 100% network uptime guarantee, and their data centers have redundant power so that won’t likely go down either. Of course, there is a risk of hardware in the servers but they use good quality hardware so this will be rare. When looking at what other users of the hosting service have said, it is clear that there is no major concern related to the stability of their hosting.
Fairly Average Feature List
This company has a lot to offer in terms of variety. They have a lot of different packages including shared, dedicated and VPS hosting. Within each category they have quite a few options too. When you look at individual hosting packages though you will see that they are all pretty standard. The entry level shared hosting has some limits on disk space and bandwidth, but they become unlimited as you move up. They also include cPanel, which is nice, and one-click installation of many different CMS’s.
When you move up to VPS or dedicated servers you will have some additional power, and the added flexibility that comes when you move away from shared hosting. Overall, however, there is really nothing significant that makes this hosting company better or worse than most other options out there. They are right in line with standard hosting services, which isn’t always a bad thing.
Tech Support is Good
The technical support with this company seems to be easy to use and helpful. You can call them or get them on Skype. You can also submit a ticket if you’re having issues. From what I can tell they respond quickly to tickets are will help you with whatever problems you’re having. I didn’t see too much in regards to self-help materials, but they are actively helping people with issues so that may not be an issue.
The pricing with this company starts at just one Euro per month, and goes up from there. The most expensive shared hosting package is 8.49 Euro’s per month. If you need the power of a dedicated server you can get it for anywhere from 39 to 100 Euro’s per month, which is surprisingly inexpensive for a dedicated server. Granted, the servers aren’t the most powerful on the market. If you need a high end hosting solution, this company likely doesn’t have what you need.
Overall this is a nice hosting provider. They have been around long enough to be considered well-established, and have been growing in success and popularity. They also offer good quality hosting options at most levels and their prices are quite affordable. Most people who are looking for European web hosting will be quite satisfied with this provider.
