Its VPS servers are hosted in the cloud and are equipped with SSD storage drives and a super-fast network connection of up to 1Gb/sec. The virtual servers are integrated with KVM virtualization that supports the latest virtualization techniques, designed to meet high-security standards and performance.

Although its hosting solutions come with daily backup services, the vendor provides users with a choice to have their servers backed up automatically or taken as snapshots. With snapshots, customers can create or replicate their backup copies on a new server, thus saving them lots of time by minimizing both the data traffic and load required to create them.
Pricing and Support
With monthly payment options, Robusta Hosting plans are cheap and very attractive. However, for clients to get a deal with the vendor, they would have to commit to an annual contract which might cost them a significant lump sum of money. The hosting provider’s billing system also supports HostBill, all-in-one automation, billing, client management system, with over 70 payment gateways. All prices are listed in euros.
Robusta Hosting cloud infrastructure comes with a 99.99% SLA policy, while its shared hosting comes with the industry-standard uptime guarantee of 99.9%. Its VPS customers with a contract of three months or more receive a 30-day money-back guarantee. However, for one-month contracts, the vendor only provides a five-day money-back guarantee.
Robusta Hosting has availed several means of contact through which customers can reach out to its supports desk: you can do so via email, contact form, ticketing system, or live chat. You can also leave them a message on their social media channels like Facebook and Twitter. That said, the hosting company has yet to establish telephone support.
Moreover, the hosting company does not have a knowledge base.
