Founded in 2005, Bacloud.com is a medium-sized hosting company that serves over 4,000 customers worldwide. The company operates private data centers with 3,000+ servers in Siauliai city, Lithuania. Key services include shared web hosting, dedicated servers, VPS hosting, online backups, and domain name registration services. Three languages are supported; English, Russian, and Lithuanian.
Features and Ease of Use
Bacloud may not be a powerhouse in the web hosting arena, but they’re doing a fantastic job in regard to web hosting features. They offer four different plans, all of which include the following features:
- SSD Diskspace
- Monthly Bandwidth
- Email Addresses
- FTP Accounts
- Dedicated IPs
- Virtual memory
- MySQL databases
- Multi-domain hosting
- Daily backups
If you’re concerned about network uptime, you will be happy to know that Bacloud.com operates secure data centers with a rack of 3,000+ servers. You are assured of 99.7% network uptime. You can also take advantage of the dedicated IP addresses that can handle traffic-heavy sites or a spike in traffic.
While not all web hosts provide free software,Bacloud’s hosting plans include Installatron, a free one-click installer that lets you install and configure various web apps. You can use it to install CMS apps like WordPress and Drupal, forums, wikis, CRMs, galleries, e-stores, or a personal blog.
Bacloud.com keeps things simple by providing a convenient comparison table with a list of features for the different plans. They also give you access to cPanel, a user-friendly control panel with automation tools to build and manage your website. If you’re already familiar with it, it will be easy for you to get set up.
Pricing and Support
Bacloud.com offers four pricing plans; Personal, Business, Professional, and Ultimate. You can easily upgrade or downgrade at any time, in accordance with your needs. The Personal plan comes with 10GB disk space, 512 MB virtual memory, 50GB monthly bandwidth, one FTP account, and five email addresses. You will also enjoy daily backups, subdomains, and free software.
The second package, Business, includes 30GB SSD disk space, 1 GB virtual memory, unlimited monthly bandwidth, five MySQL databases, one FTP account, and 50 email accounts in addition to the features listed above. If you want dedicated IPs, you will have to upgrade to the Professional plan or the Ultimate plan. Both offer more disk space and unlimited email addresses, as well as unlimited monthly bandwidth. They’re powered by fast servers and the best part is that once you pay, the services are deployed instantly.
When signing up, you have the option to register a new domain or transfer an existing one from another registrar. You will get a free domain with your annual subscription, and you can add free DNS management. They have no upsells. I know some major hosting services that are notorious in that area.
Bacloud provides support in English, Russian, and Lithuanian. Sales and technical support are available via live chat. If you’d like to ask questions before signing up for a plan, I recommend that you use the contact form on their website. You can also get support via ticket. The response time depends on the priority level assigned to your case.
I have no doubt about Bacloud’s reputation or its commitment to prompt service. From the reviews I saw on Facebook, most customers were satisfied with the level of support they received. When one unhappy customer tried to discredit them, the support team shared screenshots of the IP ranges they had issued him. Some customers stood up for them as well, rebuffing the allegations.
