AccuWeb, approved by Microsoft as a WebMatrix Compatible Hosting company, is a popular VPS hosting service with cPanel installation, Softaculous, daily backups, and SSL certification. The hosting service offers a wide variety of packages, and all plans come with a money-back guarantee.

Overview

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.

Accuweb Hosting

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.

How much does Accuweb Hosting cost?
Accuweb Hosting offers plans from $3 to $11. The price depends on which type of hosting plan you choose. You can see the updated pricing table (updated weekly) below.
Which Accuweb Hosting plan should I get?
My recommendation is to start with a cheaper plan. You can always upgrade later on. Accuweb Hosting can help you with the migration to a more expensive plan. The increase in visitors many times takes longer than expected and you shouldn’t pay a lot of money until the need arises. Of course, your needs may vary, and you can consult with a hosting expert from Accuweb Hosting here.
How good is Accuweb Hosting’s customer support?
Accuweb Hosting is not ranked as one of our top web hosts. But that can also be a result of Accuweb Hosting being a small, under the radar, hosting provider. There are advantages to a small hosting company – as a customer, you are more important to them. You can also check out our comparison of the most popular web hosting services here.

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.

Bottom line on Accuweb Hosting

It’s no surprise that AccuWeb Hosting is a recommended choice for many businesses: their affordable, scalable plans are packed with features, and they’ve done their best to create a hassle-free experience for their customer base.

AccuWeb Hosting might offer a good service at a reasonable price, but does it match up with the top web hosting companies? We find it hard to say “yes.”

Pros

  • Extensive range of scalable, customizable packages
  • Support staff available round-the-clock
  • Excellent server uptime
  • Excellent Windows VPS hosting packages

Cons

  • Sheer variety of plans can overwhelm beginners
  • Automatic WordPress management can be annoying
