Features and Ease of Use
Getspace offers six shared hosting plans (three SSD and three WordPress), two reseller hosting plans (one SSD and one WordPress), six cloud hosting plans (three Personal and three Business), and six VPS plans. The three SSD shared hosting plans provide you with:
- cPanel control panel
- One to unlimited hosted websites
- 10 GB to unlimited disk space
- Unlimited traffic
- Unlimited mailboxes
- One to unlimited MySQL databases
- PHP version selection
- Free SSL certificate
- Cron jobs
- Daily backups
- 24/7 security and DDoS monitoring
- SpamAssassin plus malware scan and removal
- Web analytics
- Free website/e-store migration
Hosted websites sit on the CloudLinux operating system that isolates you from the adverse effects of other hosted users. And creating your website couldn’t be easier since the one-click installer helps you install a plethora of popular apps such as WordPress, SugarCRM, and OpenCart.
Servers use pure SSD storage for faster page loading and greater reliability than you would get with traditional HDD storage, and Getspace also uses Gzip compression to improve performance even more (by transmitting less data).
The WordPress Hosting plans also use SSD storage, and you get a free professionally-designed website and e-shop.
With VPS plans, you get root access for complete control of your server.
Getspace’s 99.9% server uptime SLA is around the industry average.
Pricing and Support
Getspace’s SSD shared hosting plans are priced competitively. You can pay for them in British pounds or euros via PayPal, on annual, biennial, or triennial billing cycles, and you get a 14-day money-back guarantee that gives you two weeks to change your mind.
