Philippines-based Solid Hosting offers a wide range of internet services including shared hosting, dedicated servers, VPS servers, reseller hosting, and colocation services. It also offers domain name registration services and (possibly) SSL certificates.
Solid Hosting’s old-style but well-organized website is only available in English.
Features and Ease of Use
Some of the features you can expect to find in Solid Hosting’s solutions include:
- Linux operating system
- cPanel control panel
- POP3/SMTP email accounts
- PHP, Perl, and CGI support
- MySQL databases
- Softaculous one-click installer
- RAID protection
Solid Hosting’s hosting solutions support the Python programming language, and they include daily and weekly backups. It’s unclear if SSL certificates are provided separately since the website’s SSL page is unresponsive.
Depending on the plan you pick, you can choose your operating systems from CentOS, Ubuntu, XenServer, and Windows Server 2008.
VPS servers come with full root access, and all servers run on Supermicro infrastructure powered by Intel Xeon Quad Core processors for high performance and reliability. Servers are hosted in data centers in the Philippines and the U.S.
Pricing and Support
Solid Hosting offers very cheap hosting solutions, priced in Philippine pesos and backed by a generous 45-day money-back guarantee that is longer than the industry average.
Whereas shared hosting customers must commit for a minimum of 12 months, the VPS and dedicated server plans also offer monthly billing. There is no network uptime guarantee.
You can contact Solid Hosting’s 24/7 support team via telephone, ticket system or email, but the additional live chat link returns an error. On the plus side, I received a response within two hours of submitting a support ticket as a test:
Solid Hosting’s website includes an adequate knowledge base complemented by a noteworthy number of tutorials.
