LetsCloud was established relatively recently in 2017. Although headquartered in San Francisco, it has eight international data centers to host your cloud server.

Overview

LetsCloud

LetsCloud started in 2017 to facilitate cloud development, and today it offers cloud servers and container servers in eight worldwide datacenter locations in the U.S.A., the U.K., Canada, the Netherlands, Australia, and Brazil. Although it’s not a domain registrar, LetsCloud does offer DNS hosting for customers’ domains.

The company’s founders have more than 15 years of experience with cloud servers, and so far, it has provided 5,000+ “happy customers” with more than 27,000 instances. Its website supports English.

Features and Ease of Use

LetsCloud’s eleven cloud hosting plans come with:

  • 99.98% uptime SLA
  • 1 to 12 CPUs
  • 1 GB to 192 GB RAM
  • 10 GB to 1,000 GB SSD disk space
  • 1 TB to 10 TB transfer

The SSD storage is far faster and more reliable than traditional HDD storage, and you can get additional disk space and data transfer at extra cost.

You can choose from five Linux distributions (CentOS, Debian, Fedora, FreeBSD, and Ubuntu) and seven locations (Miami, Dallas, San Fransisco, São Paulo, London, Amsterdam, and Perth). With those choices made — along with your required resources — you can use LetsCloud’s CLI to deploy your customized cloud instance.

You get a dedicated IP, and root access to manage your server. The DNS tool makes it easy to attach your domain to your server, and your server is secured with internal network firewall software.

Pricing and Support

LetsCloud’s cloud hosting plans are cheap, with cloud servers and containers charged on an hourly basis for optimal control over the price. You can pay using PayPal, a credit/debit card, or even a prepaid credit card.

You get a 24-hour free trial once you’ve created your account and verified your payment method, but I’d prefer to take the test drive without having to verify first. All new accounts also get free credits for 30 days.

Logged-in customers can get support, but pre-sales support appears to be poor, and my Facebook message seemed to fall on deaf ears. LetsCloud’s self-support resources include tutorials, frequently asked questions, and blog posts:

Bottom line on LetsCloud

You could try LetsCloud for robust, low-cost cloud hosting, but I would have preferred to have been able to summon some pre-sales support.

Pros

  • Cheap cloud hosting
  • Eight data centers around the world
  • 24-hour free trial
  • Free credits (valid for 30 days) for new signups

Cons

  • Only in business for two years
  • Poor pre-sales support

Choose your operating system distribution and server location with LetsCloud.
