FlexHost is an Austrian hosting company that also has a presence in Germany and Switzerland. The vendor has included very little information regarding its hosting solutions, in essence forcing would-be customers to have to contact them for clarity on the offerings.

Overview

FlexHost

FlexHost is an Austria-based web hosting company. It offers cloud servers, high-speed webspace, cloud cluster, server housing, and domain registration services to business enterprises. In addition to Austria, this vendor has a notable presence in Germany and Switzerland. Its website is only available in German.

Features and Ease of Use

Users who buy this vendor’s hosting solutions will enjoy the following standard features:

  • Highly redundant 1GBit uplink connection
  • Email addresses with POP mailboxes
  • FTP, PHP/MySQL databases
  • Anti-Spam
  • Confixx graphical interface
  • Free support, including email support
  • Linux Apache webserver

FlexHost High-speed webspace solution is designed for business websites that receive hundreds or thousands of page visits every day or online stores with thousands of product pages.

 

With a guaranteed uptime availability of 99.99%, this solution is quite ideal for Austrian online businesses that cannot afford incessant downtimes. Interestingly, while the vendor guarantees a 99.99% uptime, it has recorded an availability of 99.9992% in the one and a half decades.

 

FlexHost also offers to do special server configurations for its cloud hosting customers upon request. It has in the last couple of years invested heavily in redundant and advanced hosting protocols that make hardware crashes of negligible effect on its clients’ websites.

 

Its high-performance cloud server promises guaranteed resource allocation to your website and easy scaling as your business demands grow. Users get to choose their preferred operating system from a number of operating systems available, including CentOS, OpenSUSE, and Debian. Customers who prefer Ubuntu can make that request and the vendor will avail it to them.

 

While the vendor seems to have some backup solutions, a link provided on its website seems to open a webpage that does not seem to have any information related to backups.

Pricing and Support

FlexHost hosting solutions are a little more expensive than you would expect for the features included. The prices are listed in euros. The vendor has an inflexible billing cycle of one year and its plans include a setup fee.

FlexHost does not appear to offer a money-back guarantee or any other refund policy.

Bottom line on FlexHost

FlexHost seems to be reluctant to upgrade its offerings to effectively compete with other vendors in Austria. Its ambitions of providing hosting solutions to businesses outside Austria appear somewhat unrealistic given its considerably poor performance in Austria where it is based.

Pros

  • Uses a highly redundant 1GBit uplink connection
  • Has recorded an impressive 99.9992% availability in the last 15 years
  • Has invested in redundant and advanced hosting protocols
  • A number of OSes to choose from including CentOS, OpenSUSE, and Debian

Cons

  • Expensive hosting solutions
  • Unresponsive support team
