QualityHosting is a Germany-based web hosting company founded in 1998. This veteran markets itself as a market leader in the provisioning of cloud hosting solutions to business enterprises in Germany and beyond. Today, it has a client base of over 10,000 customers across Europe. The QualityHosting website is only available in German.
Features and Ease of Use
QualityHosting web hosting solutions are hosted in Germany. They come with the following standard features:
- Unlimited monthly bandwidth
- PHP selector
- MSSQL servers
- Free SSL certificates
- ASP/ASP.NET support
- FTP accounts
- 250 + pre-installed scripts
- MySQL databases
- Seven-day backup options
QualityHosting’s hosting servers offer high-performance hosting solutions to its clients. The vendor uses cloud-based servers with Hyper-V, a virtualization technology that allows the running of multiple virtual machines with a hypervisor layer controlling the hardware components and allocating resources to each virtual machine. This helps combine the flexibility and power of the virtual servers, hence high-performance and reliability.
QualityHosting shared web hosting solutions come packed with features to help businesses successfully do their online projects. The shared web hosting solution is divided into four packages: WebPacket NTRY, WebPacket COM, WebPackage BIZ, and WebPackage PRO. All of the hosting solutions include unlimited monthly traffic, unlimited subdomains, Open Database Connectivity (ODBC), and up to 10 MSSQL/MySQL databases.
QualityHosting cloud servers come with 16GB RAM and 500GB HDD disk space that can be scaled to meet its user’s needs. Moreover, customers will be happy to learn that the server solutions come with seven-day backups. Nonetheless, the backup options exclude data from small WebServer DEV. The QualityHosting website is a bit hard to navigate and has many hosting solutions that can be confusing, especially for novice webmasters.
Pricing and Support
QualityHosting web hosting solutions are a bit expensive, although they do not have any hidden costs or setup fees. Additionally, the hosting plans come with flexible monthly billing cycles and prices are listed in euros.
QualityHosting cloud servers offer high availability with an up to 99.9% uptime guarantee. All the same, the hosting provider does not seem to offer a free trial period or any money-back guarantee.
Customers can get in touch with the QualityHosting support desk via telephone, email, or through their contact form. That said, I did not come across a ticketing system or live chat support on the vendor’s website. You can also visit their offices which are open during business hours from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM, Monday to Friday. The support team is not available 24/7, and unfortunately, my query via email went unanswered.
QualityHosting has a knowledge base with FAQs and tutorials but in document form, and the tutorials are only available in German. This can pose a challenge for potential customers who can’t read German.
