According to its website, in 2018, Snipe Hosting became one of the fastest-growing companies in the prestigious Inc. 5000 list. Its website also alludes to the fact that this U.K. company has hosted over 100 websites and won 29 awards to date.
So far, so good, but it’s not all good news because none of this host’s “buy” buttons were working at the time of this review. It was almost impossible to access any additional details about the hosting plans, let alone proceed to purchase them. It already makes me wonder whether this host is still in business at all. But read on…
Features and Ease of Use
According to its home page, Snipe Hosting offers four shared hosting packages, three WordPress hosting packages, and three cloud hosting packages. Despite what I said about the website links not working, it is possible to access the shared hosting plans (only) via the “STORE” link in the Client Area. Therefore, I can tell you that they come with:
- 99.9% server uptime
- 10 GB to unlimited space
- Unlimited bandwidth
- Five to unlimited email accounts
- Daily backups
Cloud and WordPress hosting plans provide a one-click app installer that allows you to install a large number of popular web applications without having to be a web expert. You also don’t need to be an expert (or have to hire one) thanks to the free website builder or the pay-for Weebly website builder.
All packages include marketing and SEO tools to help promote your website once it’s up-and-running, and the WordPress hosting includes automatic updates.
Pricing and Support
Snipe Hosting’s shared hosting prices are higher than average. You can pay for them in U.S. dollars or British pounds via various methods (PayPal, credit cards, or checks) on billing cycles from monthly to triennial. The 30-day money-back guarantee gives you some time to change your mind, but this guarantee may only be available for payments made by credit card.
You should be able to contact the support team 24/7 via telephone, ticket, email, or live chat. I say “should” because my test support ticket went unanswered.
If you have to resort to self-support, you will find a somewhat informative blog and a reasonably well-stocked knowledge base:
