Reliable SSD storage in RAID 10 configuration makes it less likely that you’ll suffer a disk data disaster, and servers sit in one of Malaysia’s leading data centers.
A 99.99% uptime guarantee is advertised for shared hosting services.
Configurable VPS and dedicated servers are housed in several data center locations around the world, in Asia, Europe, and the United States. According to this host’s website, customers prefer the European data centers over the Asian ones.
GB Network Solutions offers domain services and SSL certificates in partnership with other providers.
Pricing and Support
GB Network Solutions’ Malaysian ringgit prices are pretty low, considering the freebies you get with the hosting plans. Billing cycles range from monthly to triennial (depending on the plan you pick), but I noticed that the biennial and triennial terms are no cheaper (pro-rata) than the annual payments. A 30-day money-back guarantee gives you a month to get out with a full refund if you’re not satisfied with the services.
You should be able to summon 24/7 support via telephone, a ticket system, email, or live chat. I say “should” because my pre-sales inquiry email went unanswered. If you have to resort to self-support, you’ll be pleased to find a reasonably comprehensive knowledge base:
