Features and Ease of Use
CloudPiper offers a range of hosting services that come with these core features:
- 100% uptime guarantee
- Backup services available
- Domain registration available
- Up to three add-on domains
- SSL certificates available
- Up to 5 GB disk space
- Up to 20 GB monthly bandwidth
The hosting plans use the proven combination of the cPanel control panel and the Softaculous one-click installer. The other notable feature is CloudPiper’s exceptional 100% uptime SLA that clearly states you’ll get instant credits for any downtime.
For something a bit more advanced, CloudPiper also offers VPS plans that come with PHP (only the slow version 5), Perl, Python, Node.js, and Ruby. You get SSH for secure access to your server, Cron jobs to schedule repetitive tasks, and unlimited FTP accounts.
CloudPiper offers fully managed Microsoft solutions for e-commerce purposes.
Pricing and Support
When compared with similar U.K. and international companies, CloudPiper’s prices are very high for the features and resources on offer. However, the prospect of 100% uptime might convince you otherwise. You also have to pay a setup fee equal to a months’ hosting.
Self-support resources are extremely limited because the knowledge base is empty. Customer contact options are also limited to emailing or submitting a ticket:
