HostSkye offers a good range of hosting solutions at competitive prices in various locations. However, I'd feel better about this host if I'd been able to summon a pre-sales support response.

Overview

HostSkyeHostSkye’s English-language website sells shared hosting, application hosting, virtual servers, dedicated servers, semi-dedicated servers, and domain solutions. This host has five strategically located data centers.

Features and Ease of Use

HostSkye offers four shared hosting packages (in the U.S.A., the U.K., and Australia), 14 VPS packages (in OpenVZ and KVM variants), 11 dedicated server packages, and two semi-dedicated server packages.

The shared hosting packages provide you with:

  • 99.9% uptime guarantee
  • Unlimited storage
  • Unlimited bandwidth
  • 1 to 5 domains
  • Website builder
  • Daily data backups

Hosting accounts are managed via the Hepsia control panel that includes a one-click installer for popular applications such as WordPress, OpenCart, PrestaShop, Joomla, Drupal, and Moodle. The ModSecurity industry-standard web application firewall automatically blocks hacker attacks.

The OpenVZ VPS packages come with a choice of three control panels: the industry-standard cPanel, the easy-to-use Hespia, and the DirectAdmin control panel. Full root access gives you complete control of your server.

Pricing and Support

HostSkye’s shared hosting packages are priced competitively, and you can pay for them in U.S. dollars via various payment methods, including PayPal, credit/debit card, Western Union, and wire transfer. Whereas the product pages allude to a 30-day free trial, the terms-and-conditions page details a 30-day money-back guarantee. It’s probably the same thing, just described differently.

It should be possible to contact HostSkye’s 24/7 support team by telephone, ticket, email, contact form, or live chat. I say “should” because, unfortunately, the live chat was offline when I wanted to try it, and my contact form submission seemed to fall on deaf ears.

Self-support resources include a set of video tutorials:
