Since it was founded in 2010, 7SkyHost has grown to become a serious Ukrainian player in the VPS and dedicated server market. At the core of its operation is a team of highly skilled and motivated staff working around the clock, and what sets it apart from its competitors is an eagerness to adopt new technologies.
7SkyHost’s English language website has a clean and functional design with a simple and easy-to-use layout.
Features and Ease of Use
7SkyHost provides a powerful set of features and tools designed to enhance its customers’ hosting experiences. Some of the notable tools and features include:
- Substantial bandwidth
- 24/7 customer support
- Free website migration
- SSD drives
- 99.9% uptime
- KVM virtualization
- cPanel/WHM, Webuzo, Plesk, and EHCP control panels
One thing that makes 7SkyHost truly stand out is its consistency in embracing technological change. It has a reputation for continually improving its server architecture by buying the latest enterprise-grade servers and equipment. Its Tier 4 data center is connected to high-speed 10 Gbps connections from multiple sources, with KVM built into the servers. This results in an almost 100% uptime guarantee as well as high server performance.
Unlike other web hosts, with 7SkyHost you have the freedom to choose your operating system. You can choose from several Linux distributions or opt for a Windows server. It’s the same story with control panels, where you can choose between cPanel, Plesk, Webuzo, and EHCP. All these panels provide unparalleled administrative power over your hosting, plus one-click installers and site builders.
Pricing and Support
Many hosting companies have no problem providing low-cost hosting with corresponding low performance and few features. 7SkyHost, on the other hand, provides a perfect balance between price and performance. You can choose between VPS, professional servers, and enterprise servers, depending on your needs.
You can pay for your hosting plan via PayPal or 2CheckOut on monthly, quarterly, semi-annual, or annual billing cycles, but there are no discounts for longer-term commitments. You can choose additional options at the checkout, such as the control panel and operating system.
7SkyHost advertises that 24/7 customer support is available via its built-in customer support system, but I wasn’t able to summon any response as a prospective customer. This might not have been so bad if I could have learned more from the self-support resources, but the knowledge base is bare.
