Swedish host 99Stack’s primary offerings are its virtual and dedicated servers, but it also supplies shared hosting (including free hosting) via other providers. While self-support resources are good, I was unable to summon a pre-sales support response.


Overview

99Stack Hosting OverviewSwedish company 99Stack Hosting was established in 2016 to offer shared hosting, email hosting, virtual servers, and dedicated servers. This relatively young provider boasts a giant server network with more than 35 wordlwide locations, in the U.S.A, France, Germany, Ireland, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Australia, the U.K., India, Japan, Singapore, the Philippines, and Canada.

99Stack’s information-packed English-language websites presents prices in U.S. dollars.

Features and Ease of Use

99Stack offers two shared hosting plans — Free Website and Premium Website — that include these features:

  • PHP and MySQL support
  • cPanel control panel
  • SSD storage
  • 100% uptime guarantee

I’m pleased to see the the popular cPanel control panel included to manage all aspects of your hosting. I’m also pleased to see the 100% network uptime, but this is a bold claim to make.

It’s interesting to see that this host hands you off to other providers for the two shared hosting plans. The Free Website package, which includes 1.5 GB RAID storage and 100 GB bandwidth, is provided by 000Webhost. The Premium Website package, which includes unlimited SSD disk space and bandwidth, is provided by GreenGeeks.

Besides shared hosting, 99Stack offers eight SSD VPS plans for Linux or Windows. These come with 25 GB to 800 GB disk space, 1 vCPU to 24 vCPUs, 1 GB to 96 GB RAM, and 1 TB to 15 TB bandwidth.

Pricing and Support

99Stack’s GreenGeeks-provided paid shared hosting plan is cheap, whereas its virtual servers range from moderate to pricey. The 14-day money-back guarantee gives you two weeks to change your mind, but this is only half the test time afforded by many other hosts.

You can pay using PayPal, credit/debit cards, or cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, Dash, Monero, or Ripple.

While you should be able to summon support “round the clock” by submitting a support ticket or sending an email, I have to tell you that my test support ticket went unanswered. It’s a good thing, then, that the self-support resources are so good, comprising API documentation, a knowledge base, and a set of frequently asked questions:

Flexible and easy to use with a wide range of configuration options

Nowhere else can you find a VPS provider with the same amount of regions, plan sizes and system images. That also offers the same level of privacy, hourly billing and simplicity. From signing up until you have your first servers up and running takes only a couple of minutes.All servers are fast and responsive and you get what you pay for. Also, keep in mind that they divide their monthly prices by 730 hours (30 days + 10 hours) and not 672 hours (28 days) like many others. This means a lower hourly price than many other providers and most of the time you never pay the whole monthly price.I also appreciate the fact that multiple different companies run the data centers independently, which means different rules apply in different regions. And last but not least, they do accept cryptocurrency payments such as Bitcoin and Monero.

Bottom line on 99Stack

While 99Stack offers shared hosting (including free hosting) and a range of virtual/dedicated servers, I note that the shared hosting plans come from other providers, and I’m disappointed by the lack of a pre-sales support response.

Pros

  • 100% uptime guarantee
  • 14-day money-back guarantee
  • Global server network
  • SSD storage

Cons

  • No pre-sales support response
  • Shared hosting provided by other hosts
