Cyber Bums is a U.S-based company that offers shared hosting, SSL certificates, and domain name registration services. It has servers in the U.S. (Seattle and Los Angeles) and Canada (Toronto).
The Cyber Bums website is available in English and provides only basic information about its services. All prices are displayed in U.S. dollars.
This host used to provide a variety of solutions such as VPS and dedicated servers that are no longer available.
Features and Ease of Use
Cyber Bums offers two paid shared hosting plans (Intermediate and Advanced) and one free Entry plan. With the Intermediate and Advanced packages, you get the following features as standard:
- 100% uptime guarantee
- Unlimited bandwidth
- Chat support
- 1-click WordPress install
- MySQL support
- Daily backups
The Cyber Bums paid shared hosting plans are suitable for beginners or small websites with light to medium traffic. The disk space ranges between 3 GB and 10 GB, you get from 5 to 10 email accounts, 2 to unlimited addon domains, and 5 to unlimited MySQL databases.
Unfortunately, Cyber Bums doesn’t use SSD, which would’ve been a nice touch instead of relying on traditional disk drives for storage. Other performance-boosting features such as a CDN (Content Delivery Network) aren’t available either.
On the other hand, it’s good to see the industry-standard cPanel control panel included for free with all plans. With its easy-to-use interface and numerous plugins, you can easily manage multiple tasks for your website.
One other good thing about Cyber Bums is it backs up your data daily to safeguard against unexpected system crashes.
What about free SSL? Sadly, you’ll have to purchase an SSL certificate (fundamental for website security) with Cyber Bums.
If you’re having doubts about Cyber Bums, you can sign up for the free plan and test the waters. Keep in mind that you’ll get even more limited resources with the free package such as:
- 0.5 GB disk space
- 5 GB bandwidth
- 1 email account
- Email support
- 1 MySQL database
Pricing and Support
Cyber Bums has high prices compared to other hosting services in its tier. You can choose to subscribe monthly or annually.
Cyber Bums doesn’t offer a free domain name with its plans, but it does provide free WHOIS privacy protection when you register a new domain name. The paid shared hosting plans are refundable, but the period is unspecified, and domain name registrations are non-refundable.
As previously mentioned, the website is limited in information. You’ll find a small FAQ section, but self-help resources such as a knowledgebase or a forum aren’t available.
If you want to contact the customer support, there’s a 24/7/365 live chat channel. Other communication channels include a contact form and email.
I tested the live chat to see how responsive and helpful it was. Even though I didn’t get an instant response, the representative I spoke to was helpful.
