CloudVIP offers high-quality hosting services to business enterprises in Belgium and the world over. These offerings include web hosting, dedicated servers (Eco dedicated servers and Pro dedicated servers), VPS servers (Virtual servers Pro and Virtual Servers Managed), HA solutions, and domain name registration services.
Its website has a very simple design that is easy to navigate and is available in three languages: French, English, and Dutch.
Features and Ease of Use
As standard, its offerings incorporate the following features:
- PHP script installer
- Webalizer or AWStats statistics
- PHP version selector: 5.6 – 7.3
- Perl, Ruby, and Python support
- phpMyAdmin or phpPgAdmin
- Unlimited FTP accounts
- IPv4 addresses
- SSL certificates (TLS)
CloudVIP website services come with a wide choice of Windows, BSD, and Linux OS distributions and they are all hosted in Belgium at Interxion Brussels locations. The data center is connected to a 100G network and includes redundant power supplies for reliability.
Its servers are equipped with Intel Xeon processors and dedicated servers come with up to 64GB DDR4 ECC 2144Mhz RAM and HDD, SSD, or SATA storage systems. Also, the storage systems are equipped with RAID disk array technology for security and high-performance.
The three shared hosting solutions (Web Basic, Web Classic, and Web Advanced) are all distinguished with increasing resources, but they all include SSL certificates (TLS) and one free domain name for life.
Although the vendor talks about its backup options just in passing, these backups are created every day and clients can rest assured that their website data and files are safe and protected from loss in the event of a disaster.
Pricing and Support
CloudVIP web hosting solutions are affordable, but not cheap, yet they are only offered with long-term contracts starting from annual payments. Prices are listed in euros.
Although the vendor boasts of high availability, it does not seem to commit to an uptime guarantee. What’s worse, customers are not provided with a free test period, and there is no money-back guarantee policy.
To contact this vendor, users can only do so through opening a support ticket. Unfortunately, there are no other means of contacting them: no telephone, email, or live chat.
There is a knowledge base (labeled “Database”) but it is quite limited with just under 30 articles.
