Chips Internet is a relatively recent British entrant onto the hosting scene, but its feature-packed hosting plans are "cheap as chips," and they're backed by superior support.

Overview

Chips Internet

Since starting its journey in 2015, Chips Internet has provided affordable hosting solutions to help individuals and businesses build an online presence. This British host’s website is (unsurprisingly) in English.

Features and Ease of Use

Chips Internet offers four shared hosting solutions, three VPS packages (for Linux or Windows), and one dedicated server (mentioned only in the cart).

The shared hosting packages provide you with:

  • 99.99% uptime guarantee
  • 1 GB to unlimited space
  • Unlimited bandwidth
  • One to unlimited websites
  • cPanel control panel
  • One to unlimited databases
  • One to unlimited email accounts
  • One to unlimited FTP accounts
  • Free website templates
  • Webmail
  • Antivirus, anti-spam

The one-click installer helps you install popular CMS or other applications — such as WordPress, Joomla, and Drupal — without having any technical knowledge. As an alternative to building a CMS-backed website, you can instead use the Weebly website builder to create a professional web presence.

Once your website has been created, you’ll need to secure it. The free Let’s Encrypt SSL certificate not only gives your visitors confidence but also potentially improves your search engine standing. And SiteLock provides an excellent malware detector with instant notifications.

Since the product pages specify a 99.99% uptime guarantee, but the “about us” page alludes to a lower 99.9%, I sought clarification, and I’m pleased to confirm that you do get the higher 99.99% uptime guarantee.

Pricing and Support

Chips Internet’s shared hosting packages are incredibly cheap. You can pay for them in U.S. dollars or British pounds via PayPal or credit cards on monthly or annual terms (with other billing cycles available by request). You get a 30-day money-back guarantee, which affords you the ability to get out within the first month if anything goes wrong.

Chips Internet’s 24/7 customer support team can be contacted by email, ticket, or online contact form, and I was pleased to receive a speedy reply to my exploratory email:
