A Silicon Valley company which has been around as long as Google, Tiger Technologies sells a simple selection of hosting plans, geared towards experts rather than beginners, with some excellent help documentation.

Overview

Tiger Technologies

Tiger Technologies, a San Francisco based company, has been in business since 1999. The company has a focus on 100% green hosting and only sells a small selection of shared hosting plans, along with domain registration. The website is available in English.

Features and Ease of Use

Tiger Technologies offers three shared hosting plans (Basic, Plus, and Business) that come with the following core features:

  • 9% uptime guarantee every month
  • Daily automatic backups and unlimited self-restores
  • Free domain name with all plans
  • Ten, fifteen, or twenty-five add-on domains
  • Free Let’s Encrypt SSL certificate
  • 20GB to 50GB SSD storage space
  • Unmetered bandwidth

Tiger Technologies is proud of the fact it’s provided uptime in excess of 99.9% every month for the last fifteen years, even including scheduled maintenance. The company is so confident of this that you get a full month refunded if it’s not met. Tiger Technologies attributes this solid uptime to locating it’s servers in a Silicon Valley data center, which provides a reliable network, power, and cooling services.

The Super Micro servers use robust Intel Xeon processors and RAID 1 SSD arrays to protect against disk loss. Although it does not own the data center (which is always preferable), it does own the servers, meaning a quick response time to issues.

All of the plans come with unmetered bandwidth, which is clearly explained in the help documents, so there is no confusion of excessive or abnormal usage, and with 20GB (Basic), 30GB (Plus), or 50GB (Business) SSD storage space — comprehensive resources all round.

There is no website building tool or one-click installer (except for WordPress installations), so this likely is not the best choice for beginners. However, experts will appreciate support for PHP versions 5.6 – 7.3, Perl, and CGI. Cron jobs and SSH access are also included to ensure your website runs smoothly.

Pricing and Support

The monthly price is high. However, if you dig deeper, you’ll notice that there are lots of features bundled in which are oftentimes an added cost. For example, all plans come with one free domain, a free Let’s Encrypt certificate, daily backups, and unlimited self-restores.

You can purchase the hosting in one month or one year terms and the price does reduce nicely when you purchase a longer period upfront. There is no setup fee and you can cancel at any time. They also offer a generous 90-day money-back guarantee.

If you like to solve problems yourself, you’ll love Tiger Technologies. There’s a huge number of articles on this website covering a wide range of subjects. In fact, apart from the product pages, most of the site is built of FAQs.

As well as these resources, you can send an email to the sales, billing, or support departments, create a ticket, check out the Twitter feed for updates, or as a last resort, call the team. You will get a response back on the same day, any day of the year.

Bottom line on Tiger Technologies

Tiger Technologies seems to be a great company, despite the higher price point. The plans are geared towards more advanced users due to the lack of a website building tool and one-click installation tool, which is a shame, because the plans are simple and the help documents are excellent.

Pros

  • Support for PHP version 7.3
  • Same day response from customer service
  • Excellent uptime guarantee and SLA
  • Lots of help documents and FAQs

Cons

  • Plans are quite expensive
  • Lack of beginner-friendly features
