Founded in 2002, Spry has established itself as a leader in the web hosting industry by providing customers with excellent VPS hosting solutions and fantastic 24/7 support. Hosting packages are competitively-priced, and the support is impressive too (or so they say).
Spry’s data center is located in Boston, MA, and its website is in English.
Features and Ease of Use
Powered by CentOS Linux, Spry’s VPS hosting comes with many handy features that give users control over their web space and resources. These features include:
- Unlimited mailboxes
- MySQL/PostgreSQL databases
- PHP, Perl, Python
- Unlimited domains

Spry’s website builder is integrated into its control panel, and its drag-and-drop interface lets you create a responsive website within minutes. You can choose from hundreds of modern templates, customize the layout with pre-built sections, and add images, video or text. The best bit is that no coding knowledge is needed.
Alternatively, you can use the one-click app installer that has many free scripts for Joomla, WordPress, PrestaShop, phpBB forum, and more. All scripts come with step-by-step wizards and easy-to-follow instructions for how to deploy them.
You can also use Ecwid’s store builder to set up an e-shop with a shopping cart. Simply select and add the products you want to sell, then add a payment option, and secure everything with SSL. The builder supports multiple products and integrates with both WordPress and Weebly.
For the more technically-minded, Spry provides full root access.
