Alastyr’s cloud-based hosting solutions support both Windows and Linux operating systems. This hosting firm offers cloud VDS packages that run on SSD storage for high data read/write speeds that guarantee super-fast website loading speeds. In addition, LiteSpeed Web Server provides superior performance and resource utilization.
There are three unlimited hosting packages: Mega, Giga, and Tera. Tera is the most advanced unlimited package that comes with other unlimited features including domains, disk space, bandwidth, email accounts, and subdomains.
All of Alastyr’s web hosting solutions are backed up on a weekly basis. Customers can also perform automatic remote backups of their cloud servers every three days, weekly, or monthly.
The state-of-the-art data center is equipped with powerful hardware infrastructure including multiple cloud servers. All servers are based on KVM virtualization systems allowing users to run multiple virtual machines. The CloudLinux servers come with fully isolated resources , so you’re not affected by other hosted users. In addition, the physical servers are monitored 24/7 and are protected against hardware failures.
Pricing and Support
Alastyr’s hosting plans are incredibly cheap. Although the plans are advertised with monthly prices (in U.S. dollars), customers have to commit to a minimum of one year at the checkout. The company offers a 7-day money-back guarantee (which is less than what many other vendors offer) and a 99.9% server uptime guarantee.
Customers can contact Alastyr’s 24/7 customer support team by email, live chat, telephone, or ticketing system. The support agents are well versed, friendly, and ready to assist with any issues, as I discovered when I engaged in a live chat:
For self-support, Alastyr ‘s website includes a reasonably detailed knowledge base.
