Lithuanian hosting provider MonoVM offers an extensive range of Linux and Windows hosting plans with R1Soft backups and a 99.99% uptime guarantee.

Overview

MonoVM-overview1

If you are in a hurry, and just want the bottom line: for the same price as MonoVM you can get much better servers with 24/7 support with Hostinger, so why even bother?!

Lithuanian-based MonoVM was launch in 2012 with three employees and two server locations. It has since grown to serve more than 60,000 worldwide customers with hosting solutions from more than 30 server locations. MonoVM has ten data centers in ten locations including Germany and the Netherlands.

This provider’s sleek website is in English.

Features and Ease of Use

MonoVM’s hosting solutions are limited to VPS hosting, shared hosting, and reseller hosting for Linux and Windows, although it does also do dedicated servers and domain registration.

You can look forward to these hosting features:

  • 99.99% uptime SLA
  • Daily backups
  • Unlimited add-on domains
  • Unlimited MySQL/FTP
  • cPanel/WHM, Plesk, and DirectAdmin control panels
  • Premium SSL certificates

MonoVM uses CloudLinux servers to protect you from the effects of other shared hosting users, and by partnering with Litespeed, this host can handle more traffic with minimal memory consumption and higher performance. The use of SSD RAID 10 storage also contributes to higher performance.

While I don’t like the lack of a beginner-friendly website builder, I do like the provision of the user-friendly cPanel/WHM, Plesk, and DirectAdmin control panels. cPanel includes a one-click installer that is particularly useful for installing WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, another CMS, or one of 125 additional applications.

MonoVM also offers various Linux and Windows VPS hosting solutions with full SSH access, Windows Remote Desktop (where applicable), and SSD caching. The VPS services are supported by the VMware ESXi hypervisor, and – with full root access – you have complete control to install software and host your websites.

Pricing and Support

Each of the shared and reseller hosting services is offered in Windows and Linux variants. All plans come with unlimited traffic and unlimited emails, but storage ranges from 100 MB to 5 GB depending on your subscription.

I like the fact that MonoVM provides a plethora of payment methods including credit cards, PayPal, and cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin. I don’t like the fact that there is no money-back guarantee, but support told me that I could get a refund if I faced any unfixable problems.

In terms of customer support, you can contact this company via telephone, a ticketing system, and email, and you can support yourself by referring to the FAQ section and attractive knowledge base.

I personally received very good pre-sales support via live chat:
