Skynube is a United States registered and located company. It offers cloud hosting and reseller cloud hosting to its customers all over the world. The company’s servers are located in Chicago, U.S.A, and Istanbul, Turkey, but it has plans to get servers in six other locations. The company’s website is available in English only.
Features and Ease of Use
Skynube offers eight plans: four Cloud hosting plans and four Professional plans. The cloud plan is for those businesses just having the need of cloud but not so much CPU and RAM power, Professional hosting plans are for large businesses who need more space, bandwidth, CPU and RAM power to power their websites. These are some of the features of the plans:
- 99% uptime guarantee
- Snapshot backups
- Anywhere from 1TB to 20TB bandwidth
- Up to 24 vCores
- Up to 2TB HDD
Skynube provides a wide network connection port that allows more packets of traffic through at the same time. Its network connection is 10Gbit. It uses up-to-date Intel Xeon cores to ramp up server performance.
On Skynube, cloud hosting is fully managed by the customer. You’ll have to set your own firewall rules. So, if you’re a beginner to web hosting, you should either stick with a beginner-friendly shared hosting provider or get an experienced person to handle your cloud server.
Customers can shut down, start, and restart their servers at any time from the control panel. From the control panel, you can also manage all your website details (operating system, files, databases, etc), rebuild your server, detect network interfaces, monitor RAM and CPU usage, add or remove disks to your cloud servers and more.
Skynube doesn’t limit the OS that customers can install. It supports many versions of Ubuntu, Fedora, CentOS, FreeBSD, Debian, and Windows. You have full root access to your cloud servers so you can install the OS yourself and handle any other high-level setting.
Pricing and Support
The prices are fair for cloud servers. You get good value for your money. Subscription periods are monthly, every three months, six months, or one year. You can pay with Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover and PayPal.
Once your payment has been received and confirmed at Skynube, you’ll get an email confirmation with details in less than 15 seconds. It doesn’t have any hidden contracts or clauses. You can cancel at any time and renew when your plan expires if you wish.
It’s the norm that you don’t get a money-back guarantee on cloud hosting from many companies. This one is no different. If you’re still skeptical, go for a plan – one month or so – that you’re comfortable with.
There’s no knowledge base. Customer support is available through email, ticket, and live chat. I tried the live chat but it doesn’t work 24/7 so I had to send an email and as at five days later, I hadn’t gotten a reply.
