American host Cyber Bums offers competitively-priced, feature-packed hosting plans back by a responsive customer support team (but poor self-support resources until you've signed up).

Overview

Cyber BumsU.S.-based web hosting provider Cyber Bums is headquartered in Fort Lauderdale. In conjunction with its partner (or parent), LiquidNet, it offers shared hosting, semi-dedicated hosting, virtual servers, dedicated servers, domain services, and SSL certificates. Cyber Bums’ English-language website also links out to third parties for resources such as WordPress themes and stock graphics.

Features and Ease of Use

Cyber Bums offers four shared hosting plans, four KVM VPS plans, ten OpenVZ VPS plans, two semi-dedicated plans, and eight dedicated servers. The four shared hosting plans provide you with:

  • 99.9% server uptime guarantee
  • Multilingual control panel
  • Unlimited disk space
  • Unlimited bandwidth
  • One to unlimited hosted domains
  • Shared SSL IPs and certificate generator
  • Support for PHP, Perl, and Python
  • Cron jobs
  • Daily backups
  • Spam filters, sender policy framework (SPF) protection, and antivirus protection
  • 5 GB to 50 GB VPN traffic

You can make your website with the online website builder that includes free templates, so you won’t have to be a professional website designer to create a professional web presence. Or, you can use the one-click application installer to install popular content management or other applications, including WordPress, Joomla, Magento, OpenCart, osCommerce, and PrestaShop.

Once your website is up-and-running, the SSD caching and website accelerators should help with performance, and the ModSecurity will provide protection against brute force, code injection, and other attacks.

The two kinds of virtualizationOpenVZ VPS and KVM VPS — let you choose your operating system (CentOS, Debian, or Ubuntu) and control panel (Hepsia or DirectAdmin). When it comes to dedicated servers, the RAID 1 to RAID 10 storage uses replication to help protect you against disk data disasters.

Pricing and Support

Cyber Bums’ shared hosting plans are priced competitively, and you can get one discounted domain registration. You can pay for plans on monthly or annual terms in various currencies (USD, EUR, GBP, CAD, or AUD) via PayPal, credit cards, Skrill, or bank wire.

Although first-time customers can get a 30-day money-back guarantee on hosting and a 7-day money-back guarantee on SSL certificates, I’m sorry to say that bank wire payments are non-refundable. The answer may be the 30-day free trial that allows you to try before you buy (but with some limitations).

You can contact the Cyber Bums customer support team by telephone (on U.K., U.S.A., and Australian numbers), support ticket, or email. My pre-sales support ticket was answered within 15 minutes, which is much better than the advertised one-hour response time:

Although publicly-available self-support resources are scarce, signing-up will give you access to the help section of the control panel.
