Savvii is a Europe-based hosting provider with data centers in the Netherlands and Germany. The vendor’s servers are optimized for WordPress and while they are a relatively small hosting company, they have been recording steady growth in the hosting business in the short time they have been in the industry. The Savvii website is available in Dutch, German, and English.
Features and Ease of Use
Savvii is a hosting provider with a special focus on hosting solutions for WordPress websites. Some of the features included in their hosting packages are:
- Unlimited data traffic
- Easy, free migration
- HTTP/2 Support
- Automated updates
- Daily back-ups
- Varnish caching
- Malware detection and clean-up
- sFTP & Database access
- Free Multisite support
Savvii has optimised every element of their hosting solutions for optimal loading speeds for the websites they host. They use a range of caching techniques which ensure that the websites they host run faster on their servers than they did on the customer’s former host, and are better able to absorb peak loads. They have also developed the Savvii WP Migrate plugin specially designed to allow you to quickly and easily migrate your websites. Moreover, this plugin copies the entire website and converts all of the necessary files and database fields with the click of a button. Savii allows users to create their own backups on the control panel, but their system also creates automatic daily backups for customer websites.
Savvii does not offer email and domain registration solutions but they allow users to migrate their websites to Savvii servers without necessarily moving their emails and domains. In addition, they don’t offer web hosting solutions for any other CMS types, nor do they build websites for their clients. Webmasters looking for these other solutions would have to look elsewhere. Savvii offers a 14-day free trial period which gives potential customers the opportunity to test their hosting services without committing to a long term contract.
Savvii’s control panel includes a feature to create and restore backups. The control panel is available in English, German, and Dutch, with a simple switch in the control panel’s bottom right corner. In addition, this vendor’s website is easy to navigate and everything is easily visible from the home page.
Pricing and Support
Savviii’s managed WordPress hosting plans are priced significantly higher than most of their competitors. You can choose monthly or annual payments, with the annual payment plan getting a 10% discount on the marked price. The hosting provider offers free SSL certificates with Let’s Encrypt. For users who want more advanced verification, they provide Comodo Domain Verification, Extended Validation certificate, and Wildcard certificate at a fee. Savvii offers a 30-day money-back guarantee, no questions asked, and a 99.9% uptime guarantee. However, their uptime guarantee does not include a compensation plan in the event that the uptime falls below their 99.9% promise.
Customers can reach Savvii’s support team via their email or ticketing system. The vendor’s 24/7 support team has a relatively short response and resolution time; often ranges between 15 minutes and 2 hours for urgent issues. The vendor has a telephone number incase of an emergency, but unwarranted use of the emergency number is subject to billing. This support team seems to know their way around most of the common hosting issues that users face. The Savvii website includes a rich knowledgebase and an FAQ section, but it has no video tutorials.
