Iranian host ShivaHost offers quality solutions to help its clients build and maintain a robust online presence. Its English-language website sells shared hosting, domain solutions, and WHMCS modules (which are only available in the separate store pages).
Features and Ease of Use
ShivaHost offers three WordPress-optimized Linux shared hosting packages that provide you with.
- SLA-backed 99.9% uptime guarantee
- 10 GB to unlimited space
- 100 GB to unlimited bandwidth
- Up to unlimited websites
- 3 to unlimited MySQL databases
- 50 to unlimited email accounts
- Daily automated backups
Hosting accounts are managed via the DirectAdmin control panel, and you get a free Let’s Encrypt SSL certificate to secure your website. Under the covers, your website will sit on NVMe SSD storage that is far faster and more reliable than traditional HDD storage.
If you run (or want to run) a reseller hosting agency, small web hosting company, or I.T. service company, the WHMCS modules may be of interest for billing and client management.
Pricing and Support
ShivaHost’s shared hosting plans are priced higher than the average.
Pay in U.S. dollars via various methods (PayPal, WebMoney, CoinPayments, and Perfect Money) on monthly to triennial billing cycles. You can get discounts for billing cycles longer than a month, and the 30-day money-back guarantee should make you feel better about making a major commitment (because you can get out early if anything goes wrong). Note, however, that refunds don’t apply if you paid with a cryptocurrency.
Contact ShivaHost’s customer service team via email, contact form, support ticket (only for registered users), or live chat. At the time of this review, the live chat hadn’t been active for a month, and my pre-sales contact form submission went unanswered.
Self-support resources seem to be scarce, and there is no knowledge base or similar resource, as far as I know.
