Belgian company Systray Solutions offers Linux and Windows shared hosting, VPS, dedicated server hosting, domain registration, email hosting, and design services. Its data center is in Belgium, and its website is in Dutch with some parts also available in English.
Features and Ease of Use
Systray offers both Linux and Windows hosting plans.
The entry-level Systray Start Linux Hosting plan includes 500 MB disk space, unlimited bandwidth, unlimited email addresses, and 5 MySQL databases. For double the price, the Systray Small Linux Hosting plan includes 1 GB of disk space, unlimited monthly bandwidth, unlimited email addresses, and 10 MySQL databases. The entry-level Systray Start Windows Hosting plan includes 500 MB disk space, unlimited monthly bandwidth, unlimited email addresses, ASP.NET support, and 5 MySQL databases.
Each Systray shared hosting plan includes:
- Unlimited bandwidth
- Unlimited email addresses
- Unlimited subdomains
- Stable 99.99% uptime
- Plesk control panel
- Daily website backups
- PHP support
Customers looking for a hosted email service can choose the Systray Small Mail Hosting plan or (for much more email storage) the Systray Extra Large Mail Hosting plan. I’m sure you get the idea: whether Linux, Windows, or only email, all the hosting plans come in Starter, Small, Medium, Large, or Extra Large sizes.
For businesses wanting to grow even bigger, a Systray VPS hosting plan may be more suitable than shared hosting. And for those looking for a little help with their websites (and more), Systray also offers services for website design, graphic design, and marketing materials.
Pricing and Support
Systray’s shared web hosting starts out costing the same as a cappuccino per month, for which you get unlimited bandwidth/subdomains/emails but limited disk space (of 500 MB). This is on par with the more economical Europeans competitors. At the other end of the scale, the large hosting plans offer a little less value than European and international competitors since they offer no SSD storage, no free SSL certificates, and no free domain.
Shared hosting and email plans can be purchased only in annual increments, but VPS hosting can also be paid for biannually. You get approximately 13% off for an annual plan and a 22% discount for a two-year subscription.
Although customer support is listed as being available by telephone and email, my exploratory email (via the company’s contact form) received no response in the few days leading up to this review.
Systray also allows you to log in for self-care, so maybe you get much better support this way as a current customer.
