Global Hosting boasts of secured, high-end web servers that don’t compromise speed and performance. It uses HP servers that come with VMware virtualization technology and backups to minimize website data loss as well as disruptions.
Moreover, these servers are powered by the next generation of cloud computing technology that comes with many benefits such as scaling resources for a fast-growing business. All of its servers are located in a Turkish data center. The Global Hosting web hosting solutions come with a choice of either Linux or Windows OS platforms.
With Windows hosting, applications are written in ASP.NET, ASP, and .NET Framework that runs on Microsoft’s databases. All Windows packages support MSSQL 2005/MSSQL 2008 databases and also include phpMyAdmin/SQLWEBAdmin. On the other hand, Linux customers get to host websites that support applications such as MySQL databases as well as PHP programming language.
Although Global Hosting solutions include free SSL certificates, the vendor also offers SSL packages for customers in need of advanced security features. These packages are from some of the leading companies, including Comodo, GeoTrust, and Verisign.
Pricing and Support
Global Hosting web hosting solutions compare favorably with what other vendors are offering its niche market. Unfortunately, the hosting plans come with inflexible billing cycles that start from a minimum subscription of one year. Prices of these plans are listed in U.S. dollars and Turkish lira.
Global Hosting servers are monitored round the clock, so they can keep track of the uptime rate. These servers come with a 99.9% uptime network guarantee. Moreover, at all accounts level, the vendor offers a 30-day unconditional money-back guarantee.
Support is available on weekdays from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM local time via telephone. Its ticketing system and email support are available round the clock. That said, I did not come across live chat support.
Global Hosting has a help center with FAQs and folders.
