Cloud VPS hosting plans are built around a SAN storage network and include 24/7 customer support. Virtual server plans start with one vCore, 1 GB of RAM, and 50 GB of storage. These levels increase with higher plans, up to 10 vCores, 12 GB of RAM, and 250 GB of storage.
PowerHost’s data center can accommodate 2,700 servers and maintains a 4 Gbit redundant connection to the major carriers, ensuring a first-level connectivity rate of 99.98%. In the event of an outage, backup power is available to sustain continuous operation for 21 days. For fire protection, the facility utilizes an Inergen gas system capable of depleting the building’s oxygen within seconds. Security measures include an electric fence, over 40 security cameras, and round-the-clock monitoring.
Pricing and Support
PowerHost’s plans don’t come cheap, with the entry-level hosting plan costing more than twice the cost or comparable Chilean plans. However, some customers might consider that you get what you pay for with this company’s top-notch data center facilities.
Hosting plans come with yearly contracts and can be paid for via bank transfer, credit card, PayPal, or Servipag.
24/7 customer support can be accessed via telephone for VPS and higher plans. Simple website hosting customers can receive support via the online tech support form. Unfortunately, I received no response when I raised a test support ticket. For self-support, PowerHost provides an FAQ page:
