SitioHost is a small hosting company that simply isn’t a match for big brands like Hostinger. The bigger hosting companies simply offer a better price for similar configuration.
Chilean web hosting service provider SitioHost offers a variety of web hosting, reseller hosting, and SSD VPS plans plus domain registration and transfer, and website migration. It also offers several user-friendly services at an additional cost, such as Google Apps configuration, WordPress/Joomla installation, dedicated IP web hosting, and automatic sitemap creation.
It’s hard to say when SitioHost was established since this information isn’t given on its Facebook page or its Spanish-language website.
Features and Ease of Use
SitioHost offers six shared web hosting plans: three pro plans, and three SME web hosting plans. Some of the notable features of the pro plans are:
- 99.9% guaranteed uptime
- One to unlimited hosted domains
- Unlimited web space
- Four to unlimited databases
- Unlimited monthly transfer
- cPanel control panel
- Unlimited emails, FTP accounts, and subdomains
Hosting packages come with the Softaculous installer that facilitates instant installation of over 250 applications. If you opt for the highest Pro Plan 3 that includes unlimited domains, databases, web space, and transfer, you also get a free SiteBuilder that will help you create your website within minutes.
SitioHost’s high-performance servers are equipped with SuperMicro components and dual Intel Xeon processors, with a minimum of eight physical CPUs for each server. These servers are hosted in its Chile-based state-of-the-art Tier III data center. One of SitioHost’s unique features is the use of RAID-10 to provide better fault resilience with improved performance.
VPS plans come with root access via SSH and remote access via a virtual console. Xen-based virtualization ensures complete independence of resources.
Pricing and Support
This provider’s pro plans are cheap. You can pay in nine different currencies via various methods including PayPal, credit card, or bank transfer. Available billing cycles are annual, biennial, and triennial. The longer the billing cycle, the larger the discount.
If you’re not sure about signing up with SitioHost, the 30-day money-back guarantee gives you a month to get out if anything goes wrong within the first few weeks.
You can contact SitioHost’s 24/7 customer support team via telephone, support ticket, and an online chat system. I failed to contact the company via the online chat facility.
