AdroitSSD began its business in 2012 as Domain Luster, and in 2015 it became incorporated in the United States as AdroitSSD LLC. This host has servers in the U.S.A., and its English-language website sells shared hosting, virtual servers, SSL certificates, and domain registration.
Features and Ease of Use
AdroitSSD offers WordPress-optimized shared hosting plans with these features:
- 99.9% uptime guarantee
- Free SSL certificate
- Daily automatic backups
- From 5 GB to 50 GB disk space
- From 50 GB to 500 GB bandwidth
- Up to ten websites
The CloudLinux operating system isolates you from the adverse effects of other hosted users, as well as providing better protection against malware. The super-fast LiteSpeed webserver with caching assures faster page loading, as does the Cloudflare CDN (with Railgun) that delivers cached content from locations close to your website visitors.
Hosting accounts are managed via the popular cPanel control panel, and you can choose WordPress or four other CMS systems to be installed. As an alternative to building a CMS-backed website, you can code your site using the PHP, Python, or Ruby programming languages.
Every website owner knows how important it is to guard against malware, phishing, cracking, and hacking. For this reason, AdroitSSD provides a firewall, ModSecurity, and protection against viruses, spam, and DDoS attacks.
Pricing and Support
AdroitSSD’s WordPress-optimized plans are as cheap as other providers’ regular shared hosting plans. The initial subscription is offered at half the renewal price, but (unfortunately) there are setup fees. Billing cycles are monthly, annual, biennial, and triennial, with a generous 90-day money-back guarantee to make you feel better about making a major commitment. Pay by PayPal or using your credit card.
Although customer support should be available by ticket or telephone, my test support ticket received no reply. If you have to resort to self-support, you will find a not-particularly-well-populated knowledge base:
