SunHost is an Iran-based web hosting company that currently operates in three other locations: Oman, Dubai, and the United Kingdom. This web hosting firm has been in existence for over 11 years and markets itself as a provider of high-quality and reliable hosting services to local and international business enterprises. Some of its hosting services include shared web hosting, VPS servers, SSL certificates, WordPress hosting, and domain name registration services. The SunHost website is only available in Persian.

SunHost web hosting solutions are powered by world-class data centers located in multiple locations, including Dallas and New York, the United States; London, the United Kingdom; Amsterdam, the Netherlands; Frankfurt, Germany; Tehran, Iran; Vilnius, Lithuania; and Singapore City in Singapore.
These data centers come with international standards to enable the hosting provider to meet the criteria of quality, speed, and stability.
While some of the SunHost web hosting services come with boosted SSD/HDD hard disks, other packages let users enjoy powerful hosting on NVMe hard drives. NVMe hard drives provide write speeds as high as 3500MB/s, offering blazing-fast page loading speeds up to seven times faster than the normal SATA or SSD drives.
Although SunHost offers both Linux and Windows hosting services, most of its hosting services use CloudLinux OS platforms. Its servers are equipped with LiteSpeed technology as well as several virtualization technologies, including KVM and OpenVZ. This ensures better server utilization, hence the high performance.
SunHost claims to prioritize the security of its clients’ website data and online files. For this reason, the vendor performs daily backups using the powerful JetBackup Manager tool, to help secure users’ data in the event of a disaster.
