Based in Prague, Angel-hosting is a small hosting company that offers dedicated servers and Managed VPS along with domain registration and SSL certificates. They operate robust servers with 10 Gbit connectivity and IPv6 protocols in secure facilities in Prague and Tiskarská.
Features and Ease of Use
Since there are no shared hosting plans, I will jump straight to their VPS packages. Scalable and with zero downtime, their VPS machines can host medium-sized websites or web apps with up to 5,000 visitors per day. You can choose three variants; Mini, Max, or Custom VPS plans, with 1,000MB – 8,000MB RAM, a number of cores, and 10GB-200GB disk space.
Being customizable, you can tailor a virtual server to match your hosting needs. You can partition the physical servers into many small virtualized units each running its own operating system and instances.
They’ll also give you full root access, meaning that you get the privilege to modify MySQL or PHP to meet your requirements. Their main advantage is that their VPS can grow with your business. So, you just need to acquire additional RAM or storage whenever you see fit.
Other features worth pointing out include:
- 99.9% uptime guarantee
- Unlimited hosted domains
- Domain management and security
- Access to demo account
- Add-on domains and subdomains
- Premium SSL certificates
If VPS doesn’t suit your needs, you can go for their dedicated servers with more processing power and storage. The basic package gives you access to a machine with 1 CPU core, 4GB RAM, and 2 x 500GB SATA storage. Fully managed, their dedicated servers also give you the freedom to run just about any kind of application or website. You can request from the onsite support team to install the OS of your choice free of charge. With any of their servers, you enjoy 24/7 server monitoring, unlimited traffic, and remote server management via KVM.
When you sign up, you get access to a modern control panel with extensive administration tools and rights. You can import files using FTP, create databases with MySQL, carry out backups, secure your website using Firewall, and even create and manage personalized email accounts. But, that’s not all. You also have the ability to create and assign secondary administrator rights to access the web files of a specific domain. Overall, their control panel is user-friendly. You don’t need any special knowledge of Linux to administer your account.
Angel-hosting takes user security seriously. Domain separation ensures that anyone with access to the domain cannot access or manipulate domain data unless you, as the administrator, give them that privilege. In the event of a DDoS attack, your data remains safe because it’s protected at the system level. You can also track down individual IPs and see who’s overloading your servers.
Pricing and Support
With prices in Czech Krona and Euro, their VPS and dedicated servers are quite expensive. I have looked around and I can tell you that they’re way above the prevailing market rates. Honestly, I think you can find better deals for the same rates. The good thing is that they don’t charge set up fees. You can sign up for a monthly plans or for two-year plans. Scaling up and down shouldn’t be a problem as long as your account is in good standing. PayPal, Visa, and MasterCard debit/credit card are all accepted.
Angel-hosting offers support in Czech language only. Live telephone operators are available from 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. (GMT+1), Monday through Friday. If you’d like to contact them outside those hours, I’d advise you to send them an email.
