AgileHost is a web hosting company based in Porto Alegre, Brazil. It was started as an internet provider powering customers of Mega Internet, an internet service provider that has been in operation since 2001. Today, it is among the top 30 largest companies in Brazil by a market share of 0.03%. Its offerings include shared web hosting, VPS servers, domain name registration, and email services. The AgileHost website is only available in Portuguese.
Features and Ease of Use
AgileHost web hosting services come with the following standard features:
- JPEG or HTML upload
- Access to website statistics
- Anti-virus and anti-spam enabled
- SSH root access
- Apache/NGINX web servers
- PHP 5.x Support

AgileHost virtual servers are ideal for high-traffic websites that demand a higher level of dedicated resources. The virtual servers use KVM virtualization technology that lets users turn Linux into a hypervisor, thus allowing virtual machines to run on multiple, isolated virtual environments. This provides efficiency and high-performance of the servers.
Its hosting solutions run on multiple operating systems, such as FreeBSD, Debian, Ubuntu, and CentOS. The hosting solutions are powered by enterprise-grade Dell servers with RAID configuration, dedicated and exclusive IP addresses, routers, and switches, all but guaranteeing a high uptime. These servers are hosted in a data center located in Porto Alegre, Brazil.
The hosting firm has one shared web hosting plan, Web Presence. The hosting solution can only accommodate individuals with personal blogs or small business websites. Key features include a free SSL certificate, 2.5GB standard disk space, and 100GB monthly bandwidth. It also incorporates weekly backups as well as a website accelerator to boost your website up to 10 times faster.
Pricing and Support
AgileHost hosting solutions are quite expensive. And if you can afford them, given the limited features included, I highly doubt they would satisfy the needs of most businesses. The hosting plans are offered with monthly subscriptions. Prices are listed in Brazilian real.
All account levels are backed by a 99.7% uptime guarantee, falling short of the industry-standard 99.9% uptime. Moreover, the vendor does not seem to have a free trial or money-back guarantee policy.
Customers can contact their help desk via telephone or contact form. You can also talk to them live via WhatsApp or messenger. That said, I did not find a ticketing system or email support on its website. Depending on the complexity of your query, the vendor has a policy of up to a 72-hour response time.
Users can also access the AgileHost knowledge base that is quite comprehensive with loads of articles and tutorials.
