Chkserv is a newcomer in the hosting industry focused on providing cPanel and WordPress hosting services to clients who need easily manageable websites. The company is based in London as are their datacenters, which means this company is an excellent choice for anyone who needs a WordPress driven website with a U.K. IP address.
Features and Ease of Use
The entire concept of Chkserv hosting company is to deliver hosting service to people who are not too familiar with the tech aspect of running a website. Everything is simplified and easy to understand from the moment you reach the company website. There are two hosting plans available:
- cPanel Hosting
- Managed WordPress Hosting
The first option provides cPanel working environment which allows you full access to your website management system. It allows you to manage your emails, databases, domains, files, etc. It makes you the master of everything. cPanel is really easy to use and it mostly takes one or two clicks to accomplish what you want. There are three packages included with this plan, all of which come with an unlimited bandwidth, while the most popular, and most affordable includes the possibility of setting up three websites and 10GB of storage.
Managed WordPress hosting option allows you to run your website with Chkserv taking care of day-to-day activities regarding the management of your website. It’s the pricier option but it takes away a lot of confusion. It comes with five WordPress installs which means you can run five websites with 4GB of RAM, 75GB of storage, and 4TB bandwidth.
Both hosting plans include the latest equipment, and the storage hardware includes Samsung PRO solid-state drives that allow fast data readability. Additionally, no matter the plan or package you choose, there’s a free SSL certificate included, and this is not something you get with all the hosting agencies. The stability of shared resources is due to CloudLinux which balances the resources so every user has enough to run their website properly. The data is protected from DDoS attacks, and the backups are performed every 24 hours with your data kept safely offsite.
Pricing and Support
Most small operations tend to attract people with low prices; however, that doesn’t seem to be the case with Chkserv hosting. The prices are a bit higher than the worldwide industry standard as they are somewhat along the lines of the U.K. standard. You get a simple solution so you probably won’t need to hire a specialist to keep your website in check. In addition, there’s a lot of value in free SSL certificates, unlimited bandwidth, and loads of free third-party apps you can install. Moreover, auto updates of core and plugins add extra value to your package, even more so if you count the latest version of PHP which allows you to run all PHP based apps on your website.
The support team is always available and is entirely U.K.-based. You can reach them 24/7 through the client portal and ticket system. They also offer additional support through ChkAid, a paid service that provides non-stop WordPress support. Not many companies offer this type of support, even though it’s a paid service.
