Boasting over a decade of experience, Israel-based JetServer provides numerous services, shared hosting being one of them. It works on the principle of providing fast, reliable, and efficient hosting to its customers. Its dedication to customer satisfaction can be judged by its hosting packages as well as technical support staff, both of which provide great value to customers.
Features and Ease of Use
Here’s a brief look at what JetServer offers:
- Free backups up to 5GB
- Domain Registration service available
- Unlimited add-on domains
- SSL certificates available
- Unlimited disk space and bandwidth
- CloudLinux OS
- MySQL and MariaDB Databases
- Standalone DNS per server
- Litespeed web servers
JetServer’s uptime performance for the last month and year is clearly listed on its website, which gives you a great idea of how reliable its service is. JetServer also claims to have the best backup system in the world where you can create backups independent of the management panel with ease. More importantly, in addition to full website backups, you can also backup and restore individual files, settings, and databases.
When it comes to ease of use, the Softaculous installer is available, allowing you to easily install over 250 applications and scripts on your website. This offers the perfect solution for those that don’t have the technical skills to install applications manually.
Staying on the subject of user-friendly applications, one thing that sets JetServer apart from many other hosting providers, and at the same time justifies its rather expensive price tag, is the dedicated hosting offers for WordPress, Joomla, and Magento. If you rely on any of these three applications, you should look at these packages as they’re optimized for these applications.
JetServer also allows you to switch between different versions of PHP yourself, with just a few clicks. It puts the latest PHP versions at your disposal which you can then select from the control panel according to your requirements.
Pricing and Support
Jetserver’s packages are Personal, Business, and Advanced, all of which offer unlimited disk storage and bandwidth. The Personal package is limited to a single domain but comes at an expensive price tag, as you can easily expect an unlimited add-on domain hosting account elsewhere for that price.
The remaining two packages do offer unlimited add-on domains, but the price increases accordingly making JetServer quite an expensive hosting option for customers. While all the packages include SSL certificates, only the Advanced package offers a free .co.il domain.
According to JetServer’s own recommendations, the Personal package is perfect for a single website and blog owners, the Business package for multiple website owners, and the Advanced package is designed to meet the demands of commercial websites.
JetServer has a professional support staff that can be reached by email, telephone, and a ticket support system. It has two PHP programmers in its customer support team, enabling the support team to give you the best technical support you need. However, I was disappointed by the ticket support system because despite contacting them twice, I never received an answer to my query. There is also a decent knowledge base section, for self support.
