Sparked Host started out as Electrum Host in July 2017 but soon became the current brand. Its shared hosting plans are affordable, and it also does a decent range of gaming servers.

Overview

Sparked Host

Sparked Host LLC started out as Electrum Host in July 2017, but was soon rebranded and became an LLC in Connecticut (U.S.A.) in April 2018.

This host offers budget and enterprise Minecraft hosting, plus other kinds of game hosting, web hosting, dedicated servers, Discord Bot hosting, and associated services (such as domain registration). At the time of writing this review, it is planning to launch Hytale hosting (for immersive role-playing games) sometime soon.

To date, Sparked Host has sold more than 20,000 servers, has accumulated over 1,600 active clients, and has answered 15,000+ support tickets. While its website is in English, its WHMCompleteSolution-powered client site supports many more languages.

Features and Ease of Use

Sparked Host offers two shared hosting plans (Starter and Unlimited), one reseller hosting plan, 31 dedicated server plans, 15 budget Minecraft hosting plans, 13 enterprise/premium Minecraft hosting plans, 11 game hosting plans, four Discord Bot hosting plans, and one voice hosting plan. Although this company doesn’t offer any virtual servers, it can arrange a VPS if you raise a request.

The two shared hosting plans provide you with:

  • cPanel control panel
  • One to unlimited addon domains
  • Three to unlimited parked domains
  • 5 GB to unlimited SSD storage
  • 20 GB to unmetered monthly bandwidth
  • Three to unlimited email accounts
  • Unlimited FTP accounts
  • Two to unlimited MySQL databases
  • DDoS protection
  • Free SSL
  • 24-hour automatic backups

Since this host provides the Softaculous auto-installer, you can easily install popular applications like WordPress, Joomla, and PrestaShop without having to be (or hire) a website designer or developer. For something more specialist, you can get NamelessMC (to host a Minecraft website) or SSH shell access (to control your website hosting).

The use of SATA SSD with RAID-10 ensures performance, reliability, and resilience, and you get SLA-backed 99.99% guaranteed network availability.

Pricing and Support

Sparked Host’s shared hosting plans are cheap. You can pay for them in several different currencies via many different methods on monthly to annual billing cycles. There are four 24-hour free trials plans (including one for Starter web hosting), and there is a 24-hour money-back guarantee that refunds you if you have a valid reason. This guarantee sounds too restrictive to me, and it is too short to accurately assess the services.

24/7 customer support is available via telephone, support ticket, email, or live chat. Although I had to wait a while, I finally got the answers I needed via the live chat channel:
