Features and Ease of Use
Hosting your website on a virtual private server offers you numerous features above those that any shared plan will. ASVhost offers Linux VPS and Windows VPS plans with features that include:
- 99.9% uptime guarantee
- From 10GB to 300GB disk space
- From 1TB to unmetered bandwidth
- Up to 16GB RAM
- Four core processors at the highest
ASVhost’s servers make use of Xen/KVM distribution with Intel Xeon and Intel Core processors. The operating systems that it supports include Centos, Debian, Ubuntu, Linuxmint, Scilinux, and Windows server. These OS come in different versions and are selectable when ordering a plan.
For management, it provides the SolusVM and ISPmanager Lite control panels for free. Other control panels that are available but not free include ISPmanager Business and cPanel. They each come with features to enable you to run your account successfully. For beginners, ASVhost creates a seamless way to use VPS. You don’t need to bother about much after choosing a preferred OS as long as you pick the ISPmanager or cPanel.
The Windows VPS plans make use of hard disk drives (HDD), while the Linux VPS plans use solid state drives (SSD) on their respective servers. SSDs are better than HDDs for performance, but if you’re looking to run Windows-specific applications, you’ll either have to pick the HDDs here or look to another provider.
ASVhost uses RAID 1 and RAID 10 disk arrays. This redundant configuration increases the input/output performance of the drives and also provides redundancy of your data stored on the server.
Pricing and Support
ASVhost offers affordable prices on its first two Linux and Windows plans. These prices can even compete with some shared plans. The other plans may seem expensive, but they are in line with the market price for VPS hosting.
You have the option to subscribe to these plans on a monthly, quarterly, semiannually, or annual basis. The annual plans include a two-month discount. Additionally, all VPS plans come with a 14-day money-back guarantee.
Billing methods include PayPal, WebMoney using US dollars, and Coinpayments using Cryptocurrency.
ASVhost offers support through a knowledge base with tutorials, phone, contact form, and email address. I emailed support, but didn’t get a reply.
