SIS Argentina was established in 2003. This Buenos Aires-based web host (with an office also in Mendoza) has data centers in Argentina, Colombia, Chile, Mexico, and the U.S.A. Its 2500+ customers are hosted on more than 200 servers and are supported by 30 professionals around the clock.
SIS Argentina’s Spanish-language website can be switched into English, French, Portuguese, Dutch, and Russian.
Features and Ease of Use
SIS Argentina offers six shared hosting plans (three of which only appear in the shopping cart), four VPS cloud server plans, three virtual rack plans, six colocation plans, six Dell PowerEdge dedicated servers, and six Intel hybrid cloud dedicated servers.
The shared hosting plans provide you with:
- DirectAdmin control panel in Spanish/English
- Unlimited hosted domains and subdomains
- 500 MB to 10 GB disk space
- 10 GB to 1,000 GB bandwidth
- Unlimited email accounts
- SpamAssassin antispam, and ClamAV antivirus
- Unlimited MySQL databases
- PHP optimized support
- Compatibility with Google Apps
With the web hosting plans, you also get advanced statistics to give useful insights into your web traffic.
The Softaculous auto-installer helps you install and run several CMS and other popular apps, so you can build your web presence without having to be a web designer or developer. However, you’ll need such skills if you decide not to install an app, because there is no website builder with this host.
SIS Argentina uses SAS/SSD storage for performance and reliability. Hardware RAID provides data redundancy (to guard against disk data disasters) and redundant power supplies ensure continuity of service. Nevertheless, the 99.9% uptime is only average for the industry, although you can pay extra for an uptime SLA on the dedicated server and colocation plans.
Pricing and Support
SIS Argentina’s shared hosting plans are competitively priced. You can pay for them in U.S. dollars or Argentine pesos by multiple methods (PayPal, credit/debit card, bank transfer, or the Mercado Pago app) on monthly, half-yearly or annual billing cycles. There is no money-back guarantee (as far as I know) to make you feel better about committing for a full year.
Contact this company by telephone, support ticket, email, WhatsApp, or live chat. Although technical support is 24/7, sales support is only available during working hours on weekdays. I was pleased to receive prompt responses to my questions via the live chat channel:
