Features and Ease of Use
NR Hosting provides a comprehensive range of hosting services. To give you an idea, their shared hosting plans come with the following core features:
99.9% uptime guarantee
- Websites backed up in real time to Google cloud
- Free domain with some annual plans
- From one to ten add-on domains
- A free 256-bit SSL certificate
- 1GB to 5GB SSD storage
- 50GB to 300GB bandwidth
NR Hosting has servers located in seven worldwide data centers: Dallas, Chicago, Amsterdam, London, Frankfurt, Singapore, and Tokyo. Their network is fully secure, with 24/7 monitoring and power redundancy. They use 100% SSD storage for performance up to 300% faster than traditional HDD hosting, plus HTTP/2 to serve your website two times faster than HTTP.
NR Hosting offers two shared hosting plans – Ultimate 1 and Ultimate 2 – that come with 1GB or 5GB SSD storage, 50GB or 300GB bandwidth, and one or ten websites respectively. All plans come with a 256-bit SSL certificate, DDoS protection, SpamExperts protection, virus scan & malware protection, and an application firewall. As well as respectable resource quotas, NR Hosting also provides a premium offering of a one-click installer with over 360 programs.
If you need a little more power for your hosting, you can consider their three cloud hosting plans – Startup, Scaleup, and Speedup – that come with 2GB, 5GB and 10GB SSD storage and 50GB, 200GB and 500GB bandwidth respectively. In addition to higher resource quotas, CloudFlare CDN, and a free domain with annual plans, they also come with support for PHP 7 and multilayer caching for faster load speeds.
Pricing and Support
If you only need to host one website, you can get away with the cheapest (Ultimate 1) shared hosting plan that comes with a reasonable 1GB disk space and 50GB bandwidth. However, if you need cloud hosting or multiple domains, you’ll find that the prices do go up somewhat steeply. That said, all plans have good resource levels, and they do offer a premium one-click installer.
You can purchase this vendor’s plans for one, six, and twelve-month terms. It’s a bit strange that while the monthly price remains the same for both monthly and annual terms, the six-month option has a higher price per month.
Domain registration is free with some annual plans, whilst SSL certificates are not included in any plans. All plans come with a 30-day money-back guarantee, you can cancel at any time, and they have a fixed price renewal promise.
NR Hosting offers 24/7 customer service with an average response time of twenty minutes for tickets. You can contact them by phone or email, and there is a pretty substantial knowledge base plus a client login area.
Overall, their customer service is good but slightly let down by the fact that their advertised live chat is conspicuous by its absence.
