Istanbul-based SH is a Turkish shared hosting, dedicated servers, and cloud solutions company that started life in 2005.

Overview

SH-overview1

The parent company behind the SH brand began operating in 2005. From 2009 to 2013, it built its modern data center infrastructure to provide clients with an extensive array of services including hosting, server leasing, CDN, and VMware cloud services. From May 2013, the company started serving its customers via the SH brand.

SH serves its Turkish customers with web hosting, reseller hosting, dedicated servers, cloud servers, domain registration and transfer, and SSL packages. It has over 50,000 web hosting accounts, more than 4,000 cloud servers, and 6,000+ physical servers.

The SH website is Turkish.

Features and Ease of Use

SH offers eight shared hosting plans (four each for Linux and Windows) and six reseller hosting plans (three each) plus three MSSQL hosting plans. Also, ten SSL packages.

The company’s Linux and Windows shared hosting plans vary in terms of disk space (1 GB to 20 GB), bandwidth (20 GB to unlimited), the number of email accounts (25 to unlimited), and the number of MySQL databases (1 to 5). All shared hosting plans also come with:

  • cPanel (Linux) / Plesk (Windows) control panel
  • Instant setup
  • Unlimited subdomains
  • WordPress, Joomla, Drupal compatible
  • IMAP and POP3 email accounts
  • Data security guarantee
  • Spam mail protection
  • RAID redundancy

Although no specific uptime guarantee is mentioned for shared hosting plans, 99.99% access is alluded to for SSD-based dedicated servers that also offer high-performance DDR4 RAM and BIOS-level management with IP KVM interfaces.

SH also offers could servers with 100% operating system compatibility, which means you can choose to use Debian, CentOS, Fedora, Elastix, Ubuntu, FreeBSD, or Windows as your operating system.

Pricing and Support

SH’s shared hosting plans are very cheap. And surprisingly, its Windows hosting plans cost the same as its Linux plans. You can pay in USD via various methods, on billing periods from annual to triennial, with increasing discounts for increasing commitments.

SH provides 24/7 customer support via telephone, ticket system, email, online contact form, and even fax. Unfortunately, my exploratory email received no response, possibly because I wasn’t a fully signed-up customer when I sent it. On the plus side, SH provides a pretty comprehensive “Frequently Asked Questions” knowledge base:

Alt yapısı çok iyi

Uzun yıllardır çalışıyorum. Alt yapısı en sağlam firmalardan olduğunu düşünüyorum. 2019 da değişikliğe gidildi. Üst yapı eksikliklerini tamamlamaya çalışıyorlar. Kabin ve server kiralamada başka adrese gitmem ancak diğer kalem ürünlerde biraz daha iyileştirme gerekli.

Alt yapısı en güçlü veri merkezi.

Uzun yıllardır çalıştığım bir firma. Bu süre zarfında her firmada olduğu gibi ufak tefek aksaklıklar yaşadık ancak bu işin doğası gereği her firmanın yaşadığı türden. Özellikle bu yıl sorun yaşamadım sizin belirtiğiniz değerlendirmeler yerinde olmuş. Teknik alt yapı olarak zaten çok güçlü bir firma, 2020 başında yeniledikleri üst yapı ile sorunları oldukça minimum düzeye indirdiler. Yenileme çalışmalarının devam ettiklerini aktif müşterisi olduğum için yakından biliyorum. Çağrı merkezi ile yaptığım görüşmelerde dile getirdiğim taleplerin (kendimce gördüğüm aksaklıkların) gerçekleşmesi adına not olarak geliştirme ekibine ileteceklerini bildirdiler. Başlangıçta yapılıp yapılmayacağından çok emin değildim ancak gerçekleştiğinde de bilgi vermeleri hoşuma gitti.

Bottom line on SH

SH provides super-cheap shared hosting, dedicated servers, and cloud hosting solutions from Turkey.

Pros

  • 14 years of industry experience
  • 99.99% access (for dedicated servers)
  • Cheap pricing
  • 100% OS compatibility for cloud servers

Cons

  • No trial period/money-back guarantee
  • No short-term shared hosting options

For Turkish hosting, take a look at SH.
