Brazilian company ServerSP was founded in 2007 and provides consumer and business web hosting, reseller hosting, VPS, dedicated servers, and domain registration services. It uses Intel Xeon processors, enterprise-grade SSDs, and Cisco switches in its data centers, which are located across the United States, Canada, and Europe. It currently hosts over 32,000 domains and while its website is available in many languages, services are primarily offered in Portuguese.
Features and Ease of Use
ServerSP specializes in cloud hosting, which means that even its entry-level hosting plan utilizes cloud technology. The effects of this are a fast-loading and stable website without added costs.
Aside from shared hosting, ServerSP offers VPS and dedicated server plans as well, which are either cloud-based or traditional servers depending on what you’ve chosen. Storage for web hosting is done via SSD for fast performance.
The starter hosting plan comes with unlimited disk space and traffic. It only supports one domain. Here are a few of the features that come with ServerSP’s shared plans:
- CloudLinux OS
- cPanel control panel
- Daily website backups
- Auto-installer with over 450 scripts
- Website builder
- SSD storage
- DDoS protection
- Free SSL for all domains
If you currently have a website hosted with another provider but want to bring it over to ServerSP, you can use the free migration service as long as your current provider has cPanel installed. ServerSP personnel will upload your data to their system once you send it over.
A powerful feature included with ServerSP hosting is the included Softaculous Pro, which enables the automatic installation of hundreds of scripts. These include applications like WordPress and other content management systems, shopping carts, social networking tools, and much more. Over 450 different tools to increase your website’s functionality are available for installation with the push of a button.
Pricing and support
Pricing for ServerSP’s plans works out to be highly affordable, especially when you factor in what you get for the price. The entry-level web hosting package costs no more than a cup of coffee per month but includes unlimited storage, bandwidth, and email accounts. Add in the free SSL certificate and other standard features and this is a very competitive rate.
Compared to other hosts with a widespread network of European and American servers, ServerSP’s price points are on the low end. Take GoDaddy, one of the largest global hosts, for instance. GoDaddy’s starter plan is more than double the cost of ServerSP’s and doesn’t come with unlimited storage.
Hosting plans can be paid for in different billing terms: monthly, annually, biennially, and triennially. While pricing for the monthly plan is a great value, increasing the term length increases this value tremendously. For instance, moving from monthly to annually nets you 10% savings, monthly to a two-year term nets a huge 60% savings, and moving to a three-year term a hefty 76% savings. Since ServerSP offers a money back guarantee on its service, signing up for a long-term agreement could be the smarter financial decision.
Customer service with ServerSP is provided via live chat and email ticket. Technical support is available 24/7, 365 days a year. I did not receive an immediate response to my email, but this is likely because it was sent in English and customer support is offered primarily in Portuguese.
