AccuWeb Hosting is a small hosting company that simply isn’t a match for big brands like Hostinger. The bigger hosting companies simply offer a better price for similar configuration.
Founded in New Jersey in 2003, AccuWeb Hosting not only offers a wide range of hosting services, they’re also approved by Microsoft as a WebMatrix Compatible Hosting company, and they’re one of the recommended vendors for several ASP.NET components. Computer and systems engineering students can get a free, fully-featured student hosting package.
We actually interviewed an executive at AccuWeb Hosting, and here’s what we learned.
Features & Ease of Use
AccuWeb Hosting’s VPS plans are highly configurable, which explains why they’re a popular choice for users in the market for VPS hosting. Their Windows VPS hosting plans are particularly attractive, since there is no extra fee if you choose a Windows license instead of a Linux installation.
Their shared hosting plans aren’t too shabby, either. They’ve chosen to set their plans apart from the crowd by offering a generous amount of pure SSD storage with every plan. Plus, they come with SSL certification, free daily backups, and the LiteSpeedWebServer to ensure fast page loading speeds.
Account management is straightforward with the included cPanel installation (SolidCP or Plesk for VPS hosting plans). You can install over 300 apps in one click with the help of Softaculous, and you can even have their team install the apps for you immediately upon purchase of a hosting package.
Their uptime rating is excellent, with a 99.9% uptime guarantee.
Pricing & Support
AccuWeb Hosting’s plans span a pretty wide range:
- Shared SSD hosting
- Cloud hosting
- VPS hosting
- Dedicated server hosting
- Reseller hosting
- WordPress hosting
In short, they’ve got pretty much any hosting package you could possibly need, and their plans can be customized for whatever stage your business is in at the moment.
AccuWeb promises hassle-free cancellation, and there’s a money-back guarantee (minus the licensing cost of the Plesk control panel). You’ll still have to submit a support ticket if you want to upgrade or downgrade your hosting plan, though, as there’s no option to do it directly from your management portal. Do note that Premium Windows VPS plans cannot be upgraded or downgraded because of how the clusters are organized, and HyperV VPS plans cannot be downgraded.
Interestingly, they provide free hosting for computer and systems engineering students, though there are a few criteria that must be fulfilled before students are eligible. The free student hosting package is fully-featured and even comes with 25 email accounts.
AccuWeb Hosting provides round-the-clock support through live chat, email, telephone, an extensive knowledge base, and even a blog with short articles explaining the various technical elements of hosting. When I tested their live chat, I was connected with a support agent in under 30 seconds. He was personable and polite, answering all my technical questions with ease.

Solid web hoster!
I was recommended Accuwebhosting by an SEO consultant and switched back in August. I've been very pleased with my managed VPS ever since! My site is very fast, the customer service has been created and I can't recommend Accuwebhosting enough!
So far so good.
Hello, been using AccuWeb hosting for a little over a month now and would say that they offer great prices and overall good support. They have been quick to answer any questions I throw at them, and the server itself had been performing well. Their prices are very affordable and have good speed on their packages. Overall a great experience. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a hosting provider.
I had an issue with my Wordpress/Jetpack app not showing all my posts. I contacted them and they told me what to share with Accuweb. Accuweb quickly got the issue resolved. Accuweb is good with technical support via online chat. I was able to get my issue remedied quickly without having to go back and forth over the details.
Hello, I recently signed up for a wordpress site from AccuWebHosting and so far has been a good experience. Customer support has been helpful and the services seem reliable and quick. I would definitely recommend AccuWebHosting for their great service and support.
Absolutely great, Courteous and prompt
I faced a couple of difficulties with the server running low on resources and kind of got into a difficult situation with no one being able to access our web application. Thanks to prompt guidance and service, It was up & running in quick time.
Great customer and technical service
Fast and convenient customer service that is available 24/7. They are great at solving many of our issues quickly. We had an issue with our email accounts and our server was overloaded with data we didn't need, which caused an issue. They pinpoint the issue and we had it resolved same day.
