SilverTech Global is a small hosting vendor with headquarters in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where they have more than 785 customers, 1287 hosted websites, and 3271 email accounts. They have a presence in other countries around the world, and they have expanded their offerings to public sectors and governments in developing countries.
SilverTech Global’s services include shared hosting, dedicated server, VPS, and cloud hosting solutions. Their website is available in Spanish, but I found that it can be switched into English simply by replacing ‘/es_us/’ (if present) at the end of its website URL with ‘/en_us/’, but none of their website’s language-changing buttons appear correctly make this switch.
Features and Ease of Use
SilverTech Global offers shared hosting, VPS, dedicated servers, cloud hosting, WordPress hosting, and G Suite solutions. These solutions combine features for both average and advanced users, including:
- One-click installation
- SSL certificates
- Unlimited transfer or traffic
- Unlimited disk space
- Unlimited monthly transfer
- Free setup
- Powerful firewall
- Free choice of OS
SilverTech Global uses modern redundancy protocols and offers advanced VPS servers with extended resources, Linux kernel, root access, and high access availability. With the virtualization of resources, Silvertech Global has improved its SSD services to work from virtualized cores for improved website loading speeds. The Linux KVM VPS offering(s) and their more software-specific offerings are:
- The Linux KVM VPS is built on modern cloud technology to provide powerful, flexible, and easy-to-use VPS hosting services. Also, the VPS servers come with the latest cPanel control panel.
- The G Suite solution comes with 30 GB storage, strong data encryption, and multi-factor authentication.
- The WordPress hosting package includes features like dedicated vCPU (that makes it virtually impossible to experience downtime), dedicated RAM (for faster delivery of data from servers), and SiteLock intelligent firewall (to protect the website against malware).
SilverTech Global does not offer upgrades or downgrades of their VPS server solutions, so users have to switch to another VPS plan in order to get more resources. Additionally, they do not include a backup feature, and in fact, they state in their policies that users are responsible for their own backups and data recovery in the event of a data loss event.
SilverTech Global’s own servers are housed in data centers located in Los Angeles (U.S.) and Buenos Aires (Argentina). They also have data center partners all over the world – including Europe, Asia, and the Middle East – to better serve visitors in their own localities.
Pricing and Support
SilverTech Global’s plans are competitively priced compared with other Argentinian hosting companies, but their advanced VPS solutions are quite expensive. Prices are displayed in dollars on their website, and customers can choose to pay for various periods: one month, three months, one year, two years, five years, or ten years.
They offer free domain transfer and a money-back guarantee of 10 to 45 days depending on the chosen hosting plan. They also offer a 99.95% uptime guarantee, but they don’t provide a compensation plan for network downtime.
Subscribers to SilverTech Global’s services can contact their polite and knowledgeable 24/7/365 technical support team via telephone, email or social networks. They also have a ticket support system and a limited website FAQ section, but no live chat.
