Reviews and expert opinion Oryon

If its 500 positive reviews are anything to go by, Oryon seems to enjoy excellent customer satisfaction. With more than 15 years of experience, its 24/7 customer support team stands ready to address your hosting issues around the clock.


Overview

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

Oryon Networks Pte Ltd (Oryon) provides two types of hosting: Business Web Hosting for startups and medium-sized enterprises, and Managed Cloud Hosting for established firms that have outgrown shared hosting.

Features and Ease of Use

Your cPanel hosting comes with the following features (and more):

  • Maria DB/MySQL
  • Multiple PHP versions
  • 24/7 proactive monitoring
  • Patchman web security
  • Unlimited data transfer
  • Antivirus protection and malware removal

As well as monitoring your hosting account, Oryon provides free WordPress updates and free SSL certificates. And to ensure you don’t lose data, you get your websites, files, and databases backed up for 14 days on secure servers.

Moving from one host to another can be problematic if you don’t know how to do it. Since Oryon understands this, the support team will migrate your email and websites for free with no downtime and no loss of data.

If you outgrow the Business Web Hosting package, you can seamlessly scale up to the Managed Cloud VPS to unlock more storage space and processing power. Servers are hardened and fully optimized for better performance, your resources are isolated in a virtualized environment, and you can control your hosting via the WHM/cPanel control panel.

Oryon uses a combination of LiteSpeed Web Server, Cloudflare CDN, and SSD storage for improved performance, protection, and reliability. The risk of hardware failure is close to zero since servers are configured with RAID data mirroring to safeguard your data. You get a 99.9% uptime SLA, which is around the industry average.

Pricing and Support

Converting the Singapore dollar prices to U.S. dollars made me realize that the hosting packages are cheap, especially since they include free WP Rocket and Patchman security. You can add website optimization, more storage, and backups at the checkout, and pay for your package by internet banking, check, or credit/debit card. Since there are no contractual requirements, you should be able to terminate your account without incurring an exit fee.

Self-support resources include a comprehensive knowledge base containing lots of how-to articles, tips, and user guides for cPanel, WordPress, email settings, and other topics. You can get remote support via TeamViewer, and other support channels include telephone, email, and live chat. Since Oryon has so many live chat operators, I didn’t have to wait long to summon some assistance:

How much does Oryon cost?
Oryon offers plans from $130 to $433. The price depends on which type of hosting plan you choose. You can see the updated pricing table (updated weekly) below.
Which Oryon plan should I get?
My recommendation is to start with a cheaper plan. You can always upgrade later on. Oryon 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 Oryon here.
How good is Oryon’s customer support?
Oryon is not ranked as one of our top web hosts. But that can also be a result of Oryon 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.

Great experience with Oryon for the last 4 years in setting up my small online business. Had no issues with it, easy to set up and excellent customer service. I have also recommended to other online entrepreneurs looking to buy their own domains.

Best place to host your website

I have been a client with them since 2008, Its been over 8 years and there's a valid reason why I have been with them for such a long time. I have gotten excellent service from the team and hassle free process for new domain and web hosting for my customer, although they are not a budget choice, their service is definitely worth the money. Keep up the good work team, hope for more great years to come. Highly recommended support. Thanks !
