Spry Servers operates under a U.S.-based Limited Liability Company of the same name and has been around since 2013. It lays claim to offering affordable website solutions to individuals and business owners in the U.S. and beyond.
The vendor has you covered with a range of hosting products, including WordPress hosting, shared hosting, VPS, dedicated servers, reseller hosting, and colocation.
Features and Ease of Use
With every solution offered by Spry Servers, you get the following features as standard:
- MySQL databases
- FTP accounts
- Dedicated IPv4 and IPv6 addresses
- Free SSL certificates
- Custom cron jobs
- Plesk Onyx or DirectAdmin control panel
- Full DNS management
- Cloudflare CDN
- Free domain name
Spry Servers houses its equipment in highly secured environments in Phoenix and Dallas, in the United States. The data centers are Tier III certified and equipped with redundant network connections for high reliability.
After you are done processing your payment, the activation of your account is done instantly, ensuring you don’t wait for long to launch your website presence.
You get access to a lot of tools and features, and you’ll love the fact that you can enable SSH access from your panel. This is in addition to working with popular programming languages, such as Python, Perl, CGI as well as support for multiple PHP versions (5.3, 5.4, 5.5, 5.6, 7.0).
All of its hosting solutions use lighting fast SSD storage technology in RAID architecture and virtual servers allow for full root access along with the SolusVM control panel for easier management of your VPS systems.
With its hosting services, you get protected from attacks, including DDoS threats as well as the encryption of your website with free SSL certificates. Also, you don’t even have to worry about keeping your website data safe since the vendor performs free daily backups of its customers’ website accounts.
Pricing and Support
While you enjoy super-fast website speeds with SSD storage, Spry Servers website solutions are not the cheapest in the market. The plans are made available in several currencies: U.S. dollars, Canadian dollars, euros, and British pounds. You can pay in monthly, quarterly, or semi-annual terms but if you commit to annual term, you get a free domain name.
The vendor offers a 30-day money-back guarantee so that if you are not satisfied with your hosting, you can opt-out and still get a refund. That said, it seems to shy away from committing to an uptime network guarantee.
To get in touch with the host’s support team, you can reach out through a toll-free telephone number or via email support. I received a response to my email inquiry approximately 12 hours after sending it.
Alternatively, the help desk is also available via ticketing support or live chat, and this is a good thing for customers since the vendor’s knowledge base is quite insufficient.
