GB Network Solutions shared web hosting solutions are offered by rapid and reliable servers physically located in one of the leading data centers in Malaysia.
Moreover, its configurable VPS and dedicated servers are housed in several locations across the globe: Asia, Europe, and the United States. While choosing a good location is important, according to the vendor’s website, most customers prefer Europe data center locations over Asians, as they provide high uptime since they are near data center brokers.
GB Network Solutions’ virtual machines are powered by LiteSpeed technology with LS Cache, and they use the highest specifications of SSD hard drives in RAID-10 configuration. And while all the plans support Windows and Linux OS distributions, CloudLinux is the most preferred and it comes with CageFS that eliminates threats and helps to improve security as well as manage server resources.
In partnership with domain registry and SSL certificate vendors, this company is able to provide its customers with the registration, renewal or transfer of domains as well as offer a wide range of private SSL certificates at very competitive prices in the market
And as for data protection, the firm has implemented free daily backups so you can take care of your resources without worrying about loss. The backups are taken offline and they are powered by the R1Soft backup tool. Also, users have the ability to configure their servers to create monthly, weekly, daily, and hourly backups.
Pricing and Support
GB Network Solutions’ Malaysian ringgit prices are pretty low and they come with tons of freebies that perhaps are offered at an extra cost elsewhere. But while some plans come with monthly billing cycles, others only include annual payment options. Users can also change their currency equivalent to U.S. dollars during checkout.
All plans come with a 30 days money-back guarantee. Its network uptime guarantee, however, seems to vary from one plan to the next. While some plans include a 99.9% uptime guarantee, others come with 99.99% server availability.
GB Network Solutions’ dedicated support is available 24/7. To contact them, users can send them a message via a ticketing system or start an online chat. Alternatively, you can contact them via telephone or email. Unfortunately, my email inquiry went unanswered.
For self-support resources, the vendor has a detailed knowledge base with quite helpful articles and “how-to” tutorials.
