The clue is in the name, since GermanVPS primarily provides virtual servers that sit in a German data center. However, its English-language website also sells other solutions, including shared web hosting.

Overview

GermanVPSAs its name suggests, GermanVPS is a German provider of virtual servers and other hosting solutions at a German data center, so it’s slightly surprising that its website is in English (with prices displayed in U.S. dollars).

This host has ten years of industry experience, and it offers VPS hosting, shared hosting, cloud hosting, dedicated servers, and domain registration.

Features and Ease of Use

GermanVPS’s three shared hosting services — Personal, Business, and Enterprise — provide unlimited disk space, unlimited monthly bandwidth, unlimited email accounts, one hosted domain, and five MySQL databases. They also include these features as standard:

  • SSD storage
  • Plesk control panel
  • Built-in installer
  • Free domain (with annual billing)
  • Free website builder
  • 99% uptime guarantee
  • Free SiteLock security suite

GermanVPS provides the Plesk control panel to manage all aspects of your hosting, including website files, FTP accounts, email accounts, domains, and more. This control panel includes a one-click installer for popular content management and other applications, including WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, Magento, PrestaShop, OpenCart, phpBB, and Typo3.

If you don’t want a CMS-backed website, and you’re not up for coding a website for scratch, you can create a professional-looking web presence with the free website builder. It’s easy for almost anyone to customize one of the website templates via a user-friendly drag-and-drop interface.

Pricing and Support

GermanVPS’s shared hosting prices are reasonable, but not super-cheap, in comparison with European and international competitors. You can choose to be billed monthly, semi-annually, or annually, and the 30-day money-back guarantee could get you out early (with a full refund) if you change your mind. Pay by PayPal, Skrill, credit/debit cards, and even Bitcoins.

You can contact the customer support team by support ticket or live chat. Unfortunately, the live chat was almost always offline when I wanted to try it, and my test support ticket went unanswered. For self-support, the knowledgebase is acceptable but not exceptional:
