Having been around since 1997, SEO Hosting started out even before SEO was a crucial part of hosting a website. Since the beginning, it has focused on providing a service that caters to customers who want to come out on top of online searches. As such, it focuses on reliable and fast hosting with a few unique features to give you an advantage, even when it comes to targeting different markets across the globe.
Features and Ease of Use
If you’re looking for hosting where you can beat your competition in search results, then SEO Hosting Stars offers a unique service that will give you a competitive advantage:
- High-ranking SEO domains
- Weekly automatic backups
- Up to 500 GBof SSD storage
- Unlimited data transfer with all plans
The importance of performance in respect to page load times as well as availability can’t be underestimated when it comes to SEO. SEO Hosting Stars’ answer to that is to offer cloud VPS and dedicated servers which will ensure you get a fair share of the server resources – maintaining stable performance.
Furthermore, it provides SSD storage, the latest Intel Xeon processors, and up to 1 Gbit connections. Dedicated servers also have RAID for fast recovery and so you don’t lose critical data. The only thing that could be improved is the mediocre 99% uptime guarantee (which I could no longer confirm on the site), but it does seem like the actual uptime is much more reliable. To top it off, two global data centers should give you better performance all around the globe.
Some of the more unique features it offers are “SEO Domains”. Basically, this means that the company goes in search of the highest-ranking domains which it then holds and sells to its customers. It also allows you to buy region-specific C-Class IP addresses which will give you better loading times and ranking in different regions. You can even pay to set up a Content Network with SEO sites to generate traffic to your main website.
Oh, yes, and you get the powerful cPanel hosting control panel to manage your service as well.
Pricing and Support
There’s no complaining that SEO Hosting Stars doesn’t offer hosting within your budget. The plans cover a huge pricing range from entry-level to premium packages that will set you back a few hundred dollars. The cost of the hosting packages are actually affordable considering the fact that these are high-performing servers.
Generally, the packages come with pretty flexible billing with most plans having everything from monthly to biennial billing options. Longer terms are discounted, but usually only by a little bit. Since this isn’t exactly everyday web hosting, there are no free domains on offer, but you can purchase extra domains as well as C-Class IP addresses from them. IP addresses can simply be added on to your plan at an extra cost, while you’ll have to contact the vendor for an SEO-friendly Domain.
You’ll also have plenty of time to test out the services and reliability with a generous 45-day money-back guarantee. I believe the SEO Websites are pretty affordable, too. For a flat fee, you get a site to form part of your Content Network with SEO posts as well as hosting for it.
To simplify your billing and decision-making, you can also go for one of the pre-configured SEO packages that come with a number of IP addresses and improved connectivity. These start at a high price bracket, but are worth it for a powerful SEO hosting solution.
Understandably, support is incredibly important for most of SEO Hosting Stars’ customers as uptime directly affects your SEO rankings. As such, they offer 24/7 technical support via phone, email, and live chat. You typically get connected to an agent within five minutes of reaching out to support. In my experience, they are all very knowledgeable about their services and very helpful. And, most other customers tend to agree:
Unfortunately though, there is no documentation provided, although there is a substantial blog with some help articles.
