Ohio-based Radium Hosting was founded in 2009. This company describes itself as offering “business class web hosting” and “high-speed hosting on a global network,” and that’s pretty much what it does.
Radium Hosting’s website is in English.
Features and Ease of Use
Radium Hosting offers three kinds of web hosting: Budget Hosting, Business Hosting, and Cloud Hosting. Each kind is fully scalable and upgradable, and each kind includes an amazing “no questions asked” 90-day money-back guarantee.
The three Budget Hosting plans are Personal, Basic, and Startup. The entry-level Personal plan comes with 750 MB of disk space, 15 GB of monthly data transfer, five addon domains, 30 email accounts, and 10 MySQL databases.
Shared web hosting features include:
- Free domain (with annual hosting)
- 99.9% server uptime guarantee
- 90-day money-back guarantee
- Cloudflare CDN
- Softaculous script installer
- Free SSL certificate
- Free website migration
Each website hosting plan includes the popular cPanel control panel that provides access to GlobalSign’s one-click SSL installer and the Softaculous script installer that helps you install several apps such as WordPress. Email tools include SpamAssassin, account-level filtering, and auto-responders.
The included Cloudflare CDN can easily be activated from cPanel. This caches static content close to your website visitors, and Radium claims that it can increase website loading speeds by 30%. Performance is also improved thanks to the use of Intel Xeon processors and SSDs.
As an alternative to shared hosting, the entry-level 1-Node Cloud Hosting (VPS) plan includes a 2.4 GHz CPU, 512 MB of RAM, 10 GB of storage, and 3 TB of monthly bandwidth.
Pricing and Support
The budget web hosting plans are reasonably priced for the included features; namely, a free domain (with annual purchase), SSD storage, Cloudflare CDN, and a Comodo SSL certificate. The SSD storage allocations are not the highest, so customers with high storage requirements should keep this in mind.
Hosting can be paid for monthly, quarterly, semi-annually, or annually, with a small 6% discount (and a free domain) for making an annual commitment.
