HostSailor operates servers with SSD in data centers located in the Netherlands and Romania. With their shared and VPS packages, customers can choose servers that run on Linux or Windows OS.

Overview

HostSailor is a small hosting company that simply isn’t a match for big brands like Hostinger. The bigger hosting companies simply offer a better price for similar configuration.

HostSailor has data centers in the Netherlands and Romania and provides SSD shared Hosting, VPS, and dedicated hosting services along with automated backup and 24/7 monitoring all backed by 99.9% uptime SLA guarantee.

Features and Ease of Use

A fantastic alternative to HDD hosting, SSD Shared Hosting is their most popular package. With a range of features, this package comes with everything you need to build and manage your website or blog.  Five SSD hosting plans that run of Linux are available: Leviathan, Perseus, Zigra, Kraken, and Osiris. All their plans include:

  • CloudLinux cPanel access
  • free SSL certificates for annual domains
  • Softaculous
  • Unlimited parked domains
  • Unlimited email accounts
  • SitePad website builder
  • MySQL databases
  • FTP access
  • DDoS protection.

Shared hosting has its limitations, but HostSailor provides you an answer with their fully managed and customizable dedicated servers. They’re suitable for medium and large businesses that need more storage, better security, and a greater level of control. With plenty of power and redundant networks, their HP and Dell servers can run large and traffic-heavy websites. Set up is instant.

When you scale up to VPS hosting, you can choose from KV, OpenVZ, or Xen with SSD or traditional HDDSs.  You’ll get access to more resources to run your website or apps and the freedom to install more web apps and customize them. Being scalable, it allows you to acquire extra storage and RAM for your websites. This package is, therefore, suitable for companies that have heavy traffic or are running complex web apps.

For a small fee, you can get add-ons, such as cPanel, Direct Admin, extra bandwidth, and extra IPs. The fact that their IP4 and IP6-enabled VPS servers run fast allows them to deliver the kind of performance wanted for heavy workloads.

Pricing and Support

HostSailor offers competitively priced packages and more storage space without sacrificing the quality of services or products. I like the fact that they don’t tie customers down with contracts. You’re free to scale up or down depending on your hosting needs.

The other good thing is that there are no setup fees. With their stress-free plans, you can set up your website in less than 1 hour. Confident that you will enjoy their services, they give you a 14-day trial within which you cancel the plan and get a full refund if you’re not satisfied.

With a support team that’s available 24/7, HostSailor gives you the confidence to run your business. On-site technicians are on standby to help you troubleshoot and resolve server issues. You can send an email, open a ticket, or call their central office for assistance. Their live chat support is fast and efficient. Their Facebook reps are helpful. I recommend that you contact them if you want prompt answers to questions or whenever you need help with technical issues.

Bottom line on HostSailor

HostSailor is a great choice for customers who want SSD hosting with flawless uptime, lots of features, DDoS protection, and round-the-clock monitoring and tech support.

HostSailor might offer a good service at a reasonable price, but does it match up with the top web hosting companies? We find it hard to say “yes.”

Pros

  • 99.9% uptime
  • Easy to scale
  • 100% money back guarantee
  • 24/7 live tech support

Cons

  • Unexplained VPS cancellation
  • Refund policy not clear
