LunarVPS is fine, but fine is not good enough. While LunarVPS is a decent web host, you can get better quality hosting at a cheaper price with Hostinger, for example.
As its name suggests, LunarVPS is primarily focused on virtual private servers, but it also offers a range of shared hosting plans.
This company has data centers in the Netherlands, Switzerland, Sweden, and Iceland, and it exchanges IP traffic directly with more than 700 ISPs located all around the world. Its website is in English, but its support pages can be viewed in 25 alternative languages (thanks to automated translations).
Features and Ease of Use
LunarVPS provides three shared web hosting plans named Standard, Ultimate, and Premium.
The entry-level shared hosting plan lets you host one website, and it comes with 50 GB SSD storage, one domain, five parked domains, and 25 subdomains. You also get five email accounts, 100 MB email storage, free SSL, and unmetered bandwidth.
The higher plans provide unlimited/unmetered resources and some extra features such as SpamExperts email filtering, domain privacy, and site backups.
Some other notable features of the LunarVPS hosting plans are:
- Free domain name
- Free website transfer
- cPanel and WHM control panels
- DDoS protection
- CentOS with root access
- One-click script installer (for 360+ scripts)
- Free RVsitebuilder
- Pre-installed FFmpeg audio and video conversion modules
- Latest Intel servers with RAID-10 technology
- Server reboot/restart access
LunarVPS also offers a range of SSD-based Linux and Windows VPS plans, and its customers benefit from a 99.99% uptime guarantee with a status page that shows the uptime history.
Pricing and Support
The shared hosting plans are priced competitively (in U.S. dollars) and are payable monthly. You can pay using PayPal, credit/debit cards, Skrill, Payza, and Bitcoin.
LunarVPS offers a full refund within 30 days for all its shared hosting plans, and its VPS plans are backed by a “no questions asked” anytime money-back guarantee that refunds the remainder of your term.
You can reach this company’s support staff via email, 24/7 live chat, and a ticket system. It promises to respond to your emails within 12 hours but has an actual response time of around 20 minutes. I tested the live chat and found it to be incredibly efficient:
Those who prefer to support themselves will benefit from the reasonably well-populated knowledge base.
