Mommy Host claims to offer some of the best virtual private servers in the market. Its VPS solutions are ideal for online stores, WordPress users, and businesses looking to scale up their businesses.
All packages in the vendor’s WordPress hosting solution come with a free domain name, free WordPress setup, free email addresses, and free daily backups. The VPS solutions, on the other hand, include SSD drives, fully automated R1Soft weekly backups, fast deployment, and expert level support.
The Business hosting solution includes secure business email, proactive server monitoring, and network scanning. All plans are operated on the Linux OS platform.
As already mentioned, Mommy Host runs daily R1Soft backups with all its shared hosting plans. But unlike many other vendors who charge for these services, this hosting company charges its customers zero dollars to access this solution. While the vendor does believe in its backup solution, it still recommends that clients perform their own local backups as well.
Pricing and Support
While Mommy Host does offer high quality hosting solutions, its prices are quite high when compared to other vendors in the industry. The prices are listed in U.S. dollars. Customers pay using the vendor’s flexible monthly billing cycle.
That said, clients who commit to longer hosting contracts, say one year or more, get a 10% discount. Mommy Host offers a 60-day money-back guarantee, no questions asked. This is longer than the 30 days that most other vendors offer. What’s more, this hosting firm offers a 99.9% uptime guarantee.
The Mommy Host support team is available 24/7. Customers can contact them via phone or by opening a ticket, and the support team is extremely fast in responding to queries.
I opened a ticket to seek information about the vendor’s WordPress hosting solutions. In less than three minutes, I had received a response. That said, I was not entirely satisfied with the answers the vendor provided for the questions I had asked.
The vendor has also made available a fairly detailed knowledge base that includes video tutorials.
