Pretty good hosting experience with Hostwinds

Service used: Shared - Advanced
I like hostwinds ssd hosting services. The hosting works great. It has been reliable, reasonably fast PHP and MySQL services. Reasonably easy to configure, etc. There are very serious hosting solutions out there that cost many times the hostwinds price and are only a little better for web hosting.

Good hosting for a low price

Hostwinds is a good hosting company that is focused on providing affordable services to their customers, no matter which level of hosting they need. They have been in business since 2010, working out of their Dallas Texas data center. Even though they started off as a simple provider, Hostwinds nowadays offers a variety of services, from shared hosting, business hosting to cloud, VPS and dedicated server options. Although their focus is providing a good price, they still have a good list of services which you can choose from. Their data center is nicely backed up with power supplies, network connections and armed guards on site. They also offer good technical support and friendly customer service, which makes working with this company much easier.

Uptime & Reliability

Compare
9

99.9% uptime guarantee

This company has a surprisingly reliable service and includes a 99.9% uptime guarantee. Many people would expect that this is a feature which only luxury hosts can offer, but surprisingly enough, in terms of reliability, Hostwinds does not disappoint at all. Another nice perk here is that they have a 100% satisfaction guarantee with a 60-day money back guarantee. This makes them a great option for anyone who is looking for good services at a low price.

Features

Compare
9

Many different features to choose from

Most of what you see in their hosting packages are fairly standard, but they also have some unique features, such as their top-notch resellers and white label plans, which offer some unique features for a very low price. Hostwinds has pretty much the standard hardware but with a lot of options for upgrading. They offer a 60-day money back guarantee, which is twice what most other companies are providing. Hostwinds also has instant setup options for its hosting packages and free migration from virtually any other hosting company. Customers worried about their safety can choose to enhance it with a 256-bit encryption for one to three years at a time. All their hosting packages come with unlimited bandwidth and disk space, though of course if this is abused your account could get suspended. They also don't limit FTP accounts, email accounts, subdomains or MySQL accounts.

Support

Compare
9

Qualified US-based tech support

If you run into any type of problem you will be able to contact their US-based technical support team 24 hours per day. You have a few ways of contacting them, such as through their contact phone posted on the upper right corner of their website, via their ticketing system and through a live chat. There have been some complaints from current and former customers that their support teams can take a little longer than desired to get an issue resolved, but overall the support teams seem to be doing a good job. Hostwinds also has a knowledge, base which can sometimes be helpful, as it offers plenty of information.

Pricing

Compare
10

Excellent pricing for all their hosting options

The pricing is clearly where Hostwinds is looking to compete with the other options on the market. They have great prices for all their packages, which is nice to see. Hostwinds offers a lot of choice for shared, business, reseller and white label hosting, as well as cloud hosting. Furthermore, you can also choose VPN for managed/unmanaged Windows and Linux. The company used to offer only one option for a dedicated server, but now you can choose for yourself. Depending on which advanced option you choose, the pricier the server gets. Interestingly enough, Hostwinds also offers SSL certificates, a Virtual Private Network, domains and much more. Overall, while some of the prices are just decent, others are simply a bargain. Considering the features, this company really excels in terms of affordability.

Summary

Very nice hosting at a great price

The overall user experience with this company will be good. The fact that they are a low priced option would normally have raised some flags, but it seems that they do a good job balancing price and quality of services. By improving their services and adding new solutions, they have reached a new level in this industry. Pros:
  • Excellent prices & 60-day money back guarantee
  • Many great features
  • Hosting options at all levels
Cons:
  • Server specs slightly lower than the competition
