Launched in 2009, Malaysian company Sharaas Systems Solution is a subsidiary of the Sharaas Empire of Companies. In addition to web development and domain registration services, Sharaas offers shared hosting (for personal and business use), VPS hosting, and dedicated servers. Its servers sit in five data centers, in Malaysia, the U.S.A, India, Taiwan, and Singapore.
This vendor’s unappealing website includes a fair amount of information about the company’s products, but it contains many broken links (including broken order buttons). The website is in English, and the prices are displayed in Malaysian ringgit.
Features and Ease of Use
Sharaas Systems Solution’s shared hosting services are categorized as Linux Personal Hosting (with up to 2 GB disk space and 10 GB bandwidth) and Linux Business Hosting (with up to unlimited disk space and bandwidth). These personal and business packages typically provide:
- cPanel Pro control panel
- Free domain with the higher plans
- Unlimited emails and subdomains
- 99.9% network uptime SLA
- 24/7/365 support
- Hourly remote data backups
I like the fact that hosting plans come with the cPanel Pro control panel that makes it easy for both beginners and professionals to manage multiple hosting tasks and install hundreds of CMS and other apps such as WordPress, Drupal, Joomla. Other than this, I’m not impressed by this host’s bare-bones features and resources.
If the shared hosting offerings are not sufficient for your needs, you might instead choose a Malaysia-based VPS that comes with full root access. VPS plans come by default with the proprietary Sharaas Cloud Hosting control panel, but you can pay extra for cPanel.
Pricing and Support
While Sharaas Systems Solution’s shared hosting plans are affordable, and you get a free domain with some plans, you will find other hosts that provide more features for the same low prices.
The 30-day money-back guarantee might make you feel better about making the minimum annual commitment since it should allow you to get out early if anything goes wrong.
Although this provider advertises lots of support options — support tickets, telephone, email, a forum, video tutorials, and a knowledgebase — must of them don’t work. In particular, my exploratory email went unanswered.
