Features and Ease of Use
Serveroffer doesn’t sell shared hosting, but it does offer a generous set of 16 Linux-based VPS plans the come with:
- 99.9% uptime guarantee
- OpenVZ virtualization
- Root access
- One-minute activation
- Ability to add multiple IP addresses
- 2 TB monthly data transfer
- DDR3 ECC memory
- Intel Xeon processors
- 1 Gbps port speed
Serveroffer offers hosting plans for pros and novices alike. The lowest Linux VPS plan (which was out of out of stock when I looked) provides you with 5 GB disk space, one vCPU, and 368 MB RAM. The largest plan provides 80 GB disk space, 64,384 MB RAM, and 14 vCPUs.
I’m not too impressed with this provider’s use of RAID 10 SAS disks for VPS packages rather than the far faster and more reliable SSD storage.
Dedicated servers come with 128 GB to 480 GB SSD space or 2 TB NVMe storage. You also get SSH access or remote access (for Linux and Windows respectively), KVM virtualization, DDoS protection, internal VLAN setup, and 4 GB to 64 GB RAM.
Pricing and Support
Although its dedicated servers are somewhat expensive, its VPS plans are pretty cheap compared with European competitors. You can pay via PayPal, credit card, Bitcoin, Ethereum, Paysera, Trustly, GiroPay, Western Union, or bank transfer.
You can try a server for two to five days (depending on the plan you pick), but thereafter, Serveroffer only does discretionary refunds.
Serveroffer’s self-support resources are surprisingly comprehensive, with an extensive set of frequently asked questions and several tutorials. Remote support is also available via TeamViewer.
Alternatively, you can contact the customer support team by telephone, email, live chat, or Skype. I was pleased to get answers to my questions via the live chat channel:
