Giga Serving web hosting solutions are hosted on enterprise-grade Dell servers with scalable load balancing in cluster storage systems. Load balancing helps improve responsiveness and increases the availability of applications maximizing resource utilization.
Its hosting facilities are housed in a world-class data center with properties such as diverse fiber networks, redundant power feeds, UPS power systems, and fire suppression systems, among others. This all but guarantees a safe and secure hosting environment for optimal performance of its servers.
Giga Serving web hosting solutions come with a choice of either Linux or Windows OS platforms. The web hosting packages support multiple applications, including PHP 5 support, ASP, ASP.NET, Python, Perl, and Ruby on Rails.
At all accounts levels, Giga Serving provides users with redundant data backup services. That said, this hosting company does not offer SSL certificates to its customers.
The Giga Serving website keeps its web design very simple, using a brown color theme and a rough background texture. Brown website design inspires earthiness, stability, comfort, and reliability.
Pricing and Support
Giga Serving offers one year of free hosting for small websites, after which you can decide to purchase your preferred hosting plan. The company has fairly priced hosting packages and some of them include a significant discount for customers who commit to long-term contracts.
The hosting plans come with monthly billing cycles, and all prices are listed in euros. Although its hosting servers are highly monitored to make sure they offer high uptime, the hosting vendor does not seem to commit to an uptime guarantee.
Giga Serving customer support is available via telephone, live chat, or through a contact form. The hosting vendor has a ticketing system for customers who have already subscribed to its hosting solutions. That said, the hosting firm does not seem to have email support.
To complement its support system, Giga Serving has a fairly detailed FAQ section that customers might find useful.
