Since starting its journey in 2008, Maple-Hosting has offered web hosting solutions to customers across the globe. This Dutch company (not Canadian, as you might have expected) claims to leverage the combined power of the latest technologies and top-notch customer support.
Maple-Hosting’s English-language website sells VPS hosting, dedicated servers, domain services, and SSL certificates. It also offers a fully-managed support service.
Features and Ease of Use
Maple-Hosting offers nine VPS packages (three unmanaged, three managed, and three Windows) plus several dedicated server solutions (six metered, several unmetered, and six fully-managed). While you can customize the VPS and dedicated server solutions during the purchase process, you can also request a quote for an entirely custom dedicated server.
The unmanaged VPS packages provide you with:
- An SLA-backed 100% uptime guarantee
- 60 GB to 100 GB storage
- 6,000 GB to 20,000 GB bandwidth
- From two to six CPU cores
Servers sit in a Tier III data center and come equipped with super-fast, low-power, and reliable NVMe SSD storage. Virtual servers use KVM virtualization.
If you’re not confident about managing your server via cPanel/WHM, you can choose this vendor’s fully-managed support service whereby the support team’s technicians will take the strain of managing your server while you concentrate on your core business.
Pricing and Support
Maple-Hosting’s pricey unmanaged VPS plans can be paid for on a monthly, quarterly, semi-annual, or annual basis, with discounts of up to 15% for annual billing. At the time of this review, Maple-Hosting was also offering a limited-time 20% discount.
Plans are priced in U.S. dollars, and you can pay by PayPal, credit/debit card, and even Bitcoin/Bitcoin Cash. The 14-day money-back guarantee on VPS packages gives you two weeks to request a refund if you’re not happy.
Self-support resources include a comprehensive knowledge base and an informative blog. If these don’t answer all your questions, you can contact the 24/7 support team by email, ticket system, contact form, or live chat. I got instant answers via the live chat channel:
