Having spent over a decade setting up the infrastructure for Fortune 500 companies, the team at Nestify learned the importance of uptime and performance engineering. Their own hosting and scalability requirements paved the way for the establishment of Nestify in 2014.
Today, this Texas-based company offers managed WordPress hosting, WooCommerce hosting, VPS hosting, and agency hosting, plus free WordPress migration services. Due to the competent and efficient technical support that backs up its reliable hosting services, Nestify has won the trust of many customers, from private businesses and public companies to non-profits.
Nestify’s website is in English.
Features and Ease of Use
Nestify offers three managed hosting plans – Starter, Personal, and Professional – which you can use for WordPress hosting or WooCommerce hosting. Some of the notable features of the managed hosting plans are:
- 5 GB to 40 GB of SSD disk storage
- 500 GB bandwidth
- A staging environment (on some plans)
- Capacity to handle 10,000 to 150,000 monthly visits
- PHP 7 support
- Support for custom PHP scripts
- Free SSL, CDN, and website migration
- Automatic daily backups
The hosting plans come with daily security scans for vulnerabilities, insecure plugins, and protection against hackers. You’ll also get WP-CLI which you can use to configure multisite installs, update plugins, and do a lot more besides without using a web browser.
Except for the Starter plan, Nestify’s plans provide a staging environment that replicates your production environment (same settings, software, and hardware) so you can test your website code before putting it into production. It takes only one click from the console to build a staging environment or push changes to production.
Continuing the development theme, Nestify’s customizable software stack provides Git push support, SSH access, and CLI tools, so you can enjoy complete control of every feature of your code. When you request additional software facilities, you should find that this company never blocks any themes, plugins, or features.
Nestify stores all databases and files on SSDs with RAID-10 configuration to ensure rapid read/write speeds and resilience. The premium CDN further improves page loading speeds and helps to secure your site against attacks. These measures combine to give you a 99.99% uptime guarantee.
In addition to offering WooCommerce hosting, Nestify also automatically optimizes your online store to ensure faster load times and more efficient transactions. And for agencies that host and manage client websites, Nestify’s REST API provides programmatic access to website management functions.
To top off its offerings, Nestify provides four VPS plans.
Pricing and Support
Nestify’s managed hosting stater plan is one of the cheapest you will find on the market. It offers almost everything you’ll need apart from a staging environment. You can pay for plans in U.S. dollars via credit card on a monthly or yearly basis, with the yearly option affording you the slight discount of a month’s free service.
The 7-day free trial lets you try before you by, and thereafter, the “no questions asked” 30-day money-back guarantee gives you a full month to get out if you’re not entirely happy.
You can contact Nestify’s 24/7 customer support team via email and live chat, and I enjoyed rapid replies when I tested the live chat channel:
Nestify’s blog plays host to several informative articles and a couple of tutorial-like posts, which should prove useful to anyone looking for self-support resources. Although the company also has a knowledge base, it consists almost entirely of short questions and answers. Overall, the self-support resources are somewhat disappointing.
How much does Nestify cost?Nestify offers plans from $8 to $50. The price depends on which type of hosting plan you choose. You can see the updated pricing table (updated weekly) below.
Which Nestify plan should I get?My recommendation is to start with a cheaper plan. You can always upgrade later on. Nestify can help you with the migration to a more expensive plan. The increase in visitors many times takes longer than expected and you shouldn’t pay a lot of money until the need arises. Of course, your needs may vary, and you can consult with a hosting expert from Nestify here.
How good is Nestify’s customer support?Nestify is not ranked as one of our top web hosts. But that can also be a result of Nestify being a small, under the radar, hosting provider. There are advantages to a small hosting company – as a customer, you are more important to them. You can also check out our comparison of the most popular web hosting services here.
