EstroWeb offers affordable KVM virtualized servers with a decent degree of customization for storage or performance. Choose from a large number of international data centers.

Overview

EstroWeb

Estro Web Services (EstroWeb) is part of Estoxy OÜ, a leading Estonian website hosting company.

EstroWeb itself specializes in tailoring very affordable virtualized KVM servers to customers’ specific needs, such that you get a good amount of control over your server configuration.

This provider operates multiple data centers in France, the Netherlands, Luxembourg, the U.K., the U.S.A., Germany, and Canada. Its website is in English.

Features and Ease of Use

EstroWeb doesn’t allow you to configure your own server resources but does provide a set of server packages geared toward different users. For content-heavy requirements, you can get up to 2 TB of storage. For faster performance, you can choose a lower amount of SSD storage instead. For computationally intensive software, you can select a server with more CPU cores. If none of the standard configurations suits your needs, you can contact the company for a custom solution.

You can choose from the most popular operating systems and control panels, and the SolusVM server management software lets you manage your server. You can also access your server at the root level using VNC. The virtualized KVM servers also come with:

  • Domain registration
  • Configurable backup service
  • Up to 80 GB SSD or 2000 GB SATA storage
  • “Unmetered” bandwidth of up to 40 TB

Yes, you read the last one right. The word “unmetered” is a little misleading since you’ll be charged more if you exceed the transfer limits of 5 TB to 40 TB (depending on the plan).

EstroWeb has multiple global data centers that deliver 99.9% uptime (not backed by a guarantee or SLA). Unlike many hosts, it takes longer (up to a day) to set up your server.

Pricing and Support

EstroWeb’s 12 VPS packages are divided into three types: balanced, high-storage, and high-CPU. The balanced and high-storage plans cost about the same as each other since the lower-storage (balanced) plans use higher-cost SSDs. The high-CPU configurations are more expensive.

My assessment is that the prices are incredibly affordable considering the resources you get, hence this provider’s slogan, “The best performance to cost ratio.” But bear in mind that these are bare servers, so you’ll have to pay extra for basics like a control panel, backups, and additional IPs. However, you can use the VespaCP control panel for free

The 3-day money-back guarantee might sound a little short in shared hosting terms, but this is not shared hosting, and for a VPS it’s not so bad. The even better news is that you can get a discount for buying multiple servers.

You can contact this company for support via email, live chat, ticket, or telephone, but only during Estonian office hours. The self-support knowledge base is not much use since it contains only 16 articles:

Bottom line on EstroWeb

There’s no denying that EstroWeb offers incredible value for money when you weigh up the resources you get for the prices you pay. Just don’t expect all the bells and whistles despite a decent amount of customizability.

Pros

  • Three-day money-back guarantee
  • Data centers in seven countries
  • Great performance-to-price value
  • Customizable servers

Cons

  • No free SSL certificates, domains, or backups
  • No live chat support
