Servers Gate has a data center in Europe. The vendor states that it takes the security of its data center, network, servers, and infrastructure seriously and has put in place state-of-the-art protocols to protect its hosting architecture. It further reveals that it uses programs that make it possible for it to monitor network access and traffic as part of its elaborate security protocols.

Pricing and Support
The prices of Servers Gate hosting solutions are pretty standard and include a notable number of features that have no apparent restrictions. Shared hosting packages come with inflexible billing cycles of one, two, and three years. The prices are listed in U.S. dollars. The vendor also offers free migration of your website from your current vendor and a free Lets Encrypt SSL certificate.
This vendor’s hosting solutions include a 15 days money-back guarantee, but the support rep I talked to told me that they offer a 30-day money-back guarantee. The information available on the vendor’s website is that it offers a 99.9% network uptime guarantee. However, the support rep I talked to said that they offer 100% uptime.
Webmasters wishing to get in touch with this vendor can do so in several ways: via the live chat on their website, by calling their support team or by opening a sales ticket. The vendor has not availed a support email on its website.
The support team is quick to respond. I had a fruitful conversation with one of their support reps who provided me with the information I was seeking.
The knowledge base on this vendor’s website is quite scanty, with just 15 articles/tutorials.
