GlowHost is an American web hosting company that was founded in 2002. They excel in customer support and offer a range of high-quality web hosting packages for businesses.

Overview

GlowHost is an American web hosting company that was founded in 2002. They excel in customer support and offer a range of high-quality, fully transparent web hosting packages for businesses of all sizes.

Features and Ease of Use

GlowHost’s shared hosting plans vary primarily in the number of connected domains allowed and the provision of FFmpeg support, a dedicated IP address, and their OptimumCache software, which enables faster loading times and server responsiveness.

Beyond that, GlowHost divides their shared hosting plans in terms of a few “unlimited” features, the type of file storage, and the version of the SohoLaunch website builder offered. All shared hosting packages have the industry-standard cPanel installation and run on CloudLinux OS.

GlowHost

Their Unlimited Single Domain and Unlimited Multi-Domain plans have unlimited disk space and bandwidth, but are restricted to SATA storage drives and the Basic version of the SohoLaunch website builder. These plans cater to more experienced website creators who want more leeway with their storage space and file transfer.

Their Personal Hosting plan, on the other hand, comes with 10 GB storage and 100 GB monthly bandwidth, but are hosted on super fast SSDs and provides users with access to the Pro version of the SohoLaunch website builder. The

Their Professional Hosting package is similar, but storage is increased to 20 GB and monthly bandwidth to 250 GB. These plans cater more to professionals and businesses that require greater performance and accessibility.

Alternatively, customers requiring enterprise-grade hosting solutions may opt for one of their semi-dedicated, virtual dedicated, or managed dedicated server packages. If you’ve never heard of the first two terms before, the semi-dedicated servers operate much like shared hosting plans, except that each server is limited to 30 sites or fewer and therefore can achieve the maximum performance allowed by a shared hosting environment. Virtual dedicated plans are like VPS hosting plans, but deliver much greater performance, speed, and stability.

GlowHost also offers managed reseller hosting packages, as well as a few uncommon services such as toll-free numbers, trustmarks and badges, hack prevention, and hack repair services.

Pricing and Support

GlowHost’s plans aren’t the cheapest, but offer excellent value in each package. Smaller businesses would be well-advised to opt for either one of their Unlimited packages or their Professional Hosting packages. The latter is  recommended for businesses that cannot afford to hire a professional web designer and programmer, and need to quickly launch and maintain a website.

GlowHost does not have a free plan available, but they do offer a number of freebies with their hosting packages as well as a stunning 91-day money back guarantee. These freebies include:

  • Domain registration
  • Private SSL certificate
  • McAfee Secure with Site Seal
  • SohoLaunch website builder
  • SEO tools
  • 1500+ professional design templates
  • $75 of Google AdWords credit

Support is available via live chat, support tickets, email, or their pre-sales forum. Their telephone hotline is open 24/7, as is their support ticket system. Alternatively, if you’d prefer to type, their live chat is highly responsive – upon initiating the chat, I was connected with an agent within 20 seconds, and the questions I had with were all answered within 10 minutes. Overall, I was very impressed with their support.

Glowhost features/addons are nearly endless

Glowhost has probably the best team of support people I have ever dealt with. They have been all but once instantly available and they know what they are doing, they aren't mindless manual readers thank goodness! The one time I had to wait for support it was only a few minutes, so I have nothing but praises for Glowhost and their crew.

Techs who helped me did a good job

I recently had an issue with a WordPress site that's on their servers. The difference between a good hosting provider and a great one is that a good one will help you when you have a problem with their server. A great one will help you when they really don't have to. The performance issue turned out to be a WordPress based problem. Despite that Glowhost support team worked with me to resolve several critical.

The best host I have ever experienced!

Product, service and tech support are awesome. They always take good care of me. Their tech support is available 24/7 live tech with very little hold time! They are easy to understand, patient, very helpful and through in resolving issues. I chose them for their support and it paid off. Great price too and they have lots of website and template options for every type of website you can imagine. I tried 3 different hosting services and dropped all of them because they did not have live tech support, their solution was chatting which is not sufficient when parts of hosting are so technical, you need a live person to talk to for quick resolution and that is what Glowhost hosting is.

I am totally satisfied with their support team

I have been Glowhost customer for many years. My site has traffic from Europe and also the US. They are very good service, excellent customer service via chat and email. Control panel has a lot of good software like blog and forum. I think they are much better than my previous hosting. I have several accounts with them, and they continue to impress!

5 out of 5, 10 out of 10!

I have been using Glowhost hosting provider for more than 2 months and dare say I'm impressed with their services, servers don't have downtime at all, they are well-administrated and monitored. Great value for money - prices are incredibly low and offering much resources. They have a customized control panel to configure and control all aspects of the website.

Bottom line on GlowHost

GlowHost has much to offer as a web hosting provider. Although they do not have the lowest prices, they set themselves apart from the competition with their stellar support and high-quality hosting services.

Pros

  • Scalable hosting for businesses of all sizes
  • Many freebies with each hosting package
  • 91-day money back guarantee
  • Highly responsive support through multiple channels

Cons

  • Not the cheapest plans
  • Shared hosting servers located only in the U.S.
