Features and Ease of Use
Vadavo may not be in the league of giants in the hosting industry, but they’re clearly punching above their weight. Their servers come with solid-state drives which deliver superb performance. Customers enjoy three daily backups of files, mail, and databases (totally free with all their plans). With a few clicks, you can easily restore all the vital data in the event of a disaster.
The entry-level package is the Start Plan. You should go for this if you’re getting started or want to test the waters. This plan gives you 1.2 GB of space and 15 GB transfer bandwidth. If you have an established blog or website, I would advise you to go for the Advanced Plan which comes with 5GB storage space and 100GB transfer bandwidth.
Two higher-level plans are available for those looking for unmetered transfer bandwidth: Professional Plan and the Company Plan. With 10 GB and 15GB disk space respectively, both are suitable for businesses that have huge workloads or traffic-heavy sites. Regardless of what plan you choose, you’ll get full access to the following features:
- cPanel Unlimited email accounts
- Cache systems
- Redundant DNS
- Daily backups
- MySQL and PHP
- Unlimited subdomains
- Unlimited databases
Apart from shared hosting, Vadavo also provides Cloud servers to those who need more resources or space. Their Cloud engineers can help you configure your server based on your desired RAM, processor, disk space, and transfer bandwidth. With SSDs that are 10 times faster than conventional storage, their servers can handle all your workloads efficiently.
Though mobile-friendly, Vadavo’s website isn’t attractive or sleek. I have seen far better websites. They should rework the design (layout and graphics) and create an English version for international customers. That notwithstanding, it’s comforting to know that they offer cPanel. If you’re familiar with it, you will find it easy to manage your web space. Other than the outdated design, everything else looks good.
Pricing and Support
Vadavo has a transparent pricing policy. What you see is what you pay. I like the fact that they don’t charge a setup fee or pass the cost of advertising and gifts to customers like some hosting providers do. For a small fee, you can get a good number of add-ons, such as additional SSD space and professional email with an antispam filter to complement your hosting package.
Customers receive personalized support. When you sign up, you will be assigned a personal advisor to help you whenever you need guidance or support. Their support is in Spanish only. I looked at their Facebook and their comments are in Spanish too. You can reach them by phone, Whatsapp, email, or via the online messaging form. Typical responses take about 30 minutes. Being a company that readily welcomes feedback and suggestions, they give you an opportunity to suggest what they can do better.
Every hosting plan comes with a 99.9% SLA. If your page fails to load fast, you can ask for a partial refund.
