Features and Ease of Use
Inferno Solutions’ primary offerings are six Linux SSD VPS plans and six Windows SSD VPS plans, with the specifications varying according to the server location. Dedicated servers are also available in global locations.
As an example, the UK Linux SSD VPS plan provides you with:
- ISPmanager Lite v5/DirectAdmin control panel
- Intel Xeon CPU
- 1 GB to 32 GB RAM
- 20 GB to 100 GB SSD RAID 10 storage
- 1,000 Mbit port
- Free backups
- 24/7 server administration
If the initial plan you pick is not optimal, you’ll be pleased to know that you can easily upgrade or downgrade your tariff.
The RAID 10 configuration employs replication to improve performance and to guard against potential disk data disasters. The 99.9% uptime is around the industry average.
From custom-made server configurations to private clouds, failover clusters, private networks, and more, Inferno Solutions offers some of the most flexible and widest range of infrastructure options. All servers have IPMI and VNC access for complete control, so you can (for example) reboot, shut down, or install your own OS.
Pricing and Support
Inferno Solutions’ VPS plans are cheap. International customers can pay U.S. dollars via various methods, and residents of the European Union and the Russian Federation can pay in euros or Russian rubles via additional payment methods. Available billing cycles are monthly to annual, with the yearly commitment giving you three months’ free hosting plus the ISPmanager Lite v5/DirectAdmin panel for free.
There is no money-back guarantee as far as I can see, but there are free test periods of 14 days (for a Linux VPS), seven days (for an SSD VPS), and 24 hours (for a Windows VPS). You will end up paying for these test periods — as part of your first monthly payment — if you decide to stick with your hosting.
You can contact the 24/7 customer support team by telephone, ticket, email, contact form, live chat, or Skype. I got quick answers to my questions via the live chat channel:
