GoSSDHosting initially launched in 2014 under the name Host Big Space. In 2019 it was rebranded to GoSSDHosting. Based in India, GoSSDHosting has data centers in both the U.S.A. and India. It offers shared hosting, reseller hosting, VPS hosting, dedicated servers, and domain registration.
The GoSSDHosting website has an attractive layout and is quite informative. It’s only available in English, and all prices are in U.S. dollars.
Features and Ease of Use
GoSSDHosting has three shared hosting plans – Starter, Lite, and Elite. These plans vary in storage, monthly bandwidth, hosted domains, and several other specifications and features. However, all three share the following features:
- Softaculous installer
- Free website builder (SiteBuilder)
- SSD storage
- Free SSL certificate
- 99.95% uptime guarantee
- Cron Jobs
- Free Cloudflare CDN
Even though GoSSDHosting’s shared hosting plans come with a wide range of features, they’re pretty limited when it comes to resources. For instance, the storage for the three plans ranges from 1 GB to 10 GB, and the monthly bandwidth from 5 GB to 50 GB.
On the upside, GoSSDHosting includes a free drag-and-drop website builder (SiteBuilder) with all plans, which is great for beginners. SiteBuilder has multiple layout templates and themes that you can choose. With a simple drag-and-drop interface, you’ll have your website looking professional in no time.
Another helpful tool in GoSSDHosting’s control panel is Cron Jobs. Cron Jobs are responsible for the automatic execution of periodic website tasks. All you need to do is input all your tasks in the tool and set the time you want it to start – Cron Jobs will do the rest.
As mentioned, GoSSDHosting’s plans are relatively limited when it comes to resources. If your website requires more, you can always upgrade to a VPS hosting solution or check out one of our recommended hosts in this top web hosting comparison.
Pricing and Support
Compared to other hosts in its tier and considering its limited resources, GoSSDHosting’s prices are slightly high. It also only allows you to subscribe on an annual basis, which is quite restrictive.
Unfortunately, GoSSDHosting doesn’t have a money-back guarantee. However, if you cancel your subscription before your contract ends, you will receive a prorated refund for the unused period.
Even though GoSSDHosting’s website has a knowledgebase, it only has 22 articles and tutorials. It also has a YouTube channel, with a few video tutorials, but it is also limited.
On a brighter note, its customer support is quite helpful. The support is available through live chat, phone, and support tickets. The live chat is open during working hours (Mon-Fri: 11 AM – 11 PM IST), while ticket support is available 24/7. Fortunately, I got through to the live chat, and the agent was responsive and knowledgeable.
