Mammoth Cloud offers several SSD-based Linux and Windows cloud VPS hosting plans that can be upgraded or downgraded at any time. This provider is let down only by poor pre-sales support.

Overview

Mammoth Cloud

Based in Queensland, Australia, Mammoth Cloud has been providing Windows and Linux cloud hosting solutions since 2009. Its range of products includes cloud hosting, VPS hosting, and server management.

Mammoth has three data centers in Sydney, Melbourne, and Brisbane. Its sleek website is in English.

Features and Ease of Use

While Mammoth no longer offers web hosting, it does provide cloud VPS plans that feature:

  • 100% SSD disk storage
  • Configurable external firewall
  • Full disk backup
  • 99.9% SLA
  • Full N+1 hardware redundancy

The Linux cloud plans come with 20 GB to 150 GB web space and 100 GB to 800 GB data transfer. The servers are pre-installed and ready-to-use, and you can choose between different Linux versions including Ubuntu, Debian, and CentOS with SSH access.

This provider also offers cPanel cloud VPS packages that come with 40 GB to 300 GB disk space and 300 GB to 3000 GB data transfer. The licensed cPanel control panel is preinstalled and ready to use, so you just need to connect to the WHM interface. You can choose to deploy the cloud VPS on the public cloud or your own virtual private cloud.

In addition to the cPanel control panel, Mammoth also offers its own ‘mPanel’ custom control panel that is packed with useful features including access to your VPS via a web-based SSH client. You can use it to upgrade or downgrade your VPS disk space or data transfer, change the operating system, customize backup settings, configure network and VPS settings, and more.

Pricing and Support

Cloud VPS plans are categorized as General Purpose and Compute Optimized, each category comprising four packages with differing disk space, RAM, and other features depending on the operating system you’re using.

You can pay for plans using PayPal or credit/debit cards, and as you might expect, the Windows plans are slightly more expensive than the Linux plans.

Unfortunately, there is no clear refund policy, and customer support never got back to me when I tried contacting the company via support ticket and email. There is no live chat, but you can try the telephone number if you’re in Australia.

For self-support, there’s a decent set of FAQs and tutorial guides:

Bottom line on Mammoth Cloud

As far as VPS hosting companies go, Mammoth has the potential to be among the big players in the market, but there is real room for improvement in terms of pre-sales support.

  • Automated backups
