Verpex is a relatively new hosting provider that launched in 2019. It operates out of London, Bulgaria, and Bali offices and has data centers in Canada, the U.S.A., Brazil, the U.K., the Netherlands, Germany, India, Singapore, and Australia. It specializes in shared hosting, reseller hosting, cloud hosting, WordPress hosting (managed and unmanaged), managed Magento hosting, and domain registration.
The Verpex website is well-designed and resourceful; however, it is only available in English, and all prices are in U.S. dollars.
Features and Ease of Use
Verpex offers cloud web hosting (shared) via three different price plans – Bronze, Silver, and Gold. The plans vary by storage limits and the number of hosted websites. However, all three come with unlimited monthly bandwidth as well as the following standard features:
- Softaculous installer
- SSD storage
- Free SSL certificates
- Free domain
- Daily backups
- Free website migration
- LiteSpeed Web Server
- 99.5% uptime guarantee
All shared hosting accounts run on CloudLinux OS, which securely isolates each account from others on the same server. This protects your site against external threats and ensures the fair allocation of the server resources.
All plans are SSD-powered instead of the more traditional HDD storage. SSD storage performs much faster and is more stable in processing website data. In return, this reflects on your website’s loading speed, stability, and overall performance.
The cPanel control panel is also a standard feature that comes with all plans. It’s known for its user-friendly management interface and numerous useful built-in tools. One of these tools is the Softaculous one-click installer, which is easy to use and supports hundreds of popular CMS applications and scripts, including WordPress.
Pricing and Support
Despite its feature-rich plans, Verpex is a tad pricey. I’ve seen and reviewed other hosting services that offer the same features (some even more) at lower prices. See this top web hosting comparison to find out more.
All plans are available on monthly or yearly billing cycles. The annual billing cycles come at the lowest average monthly cost, and there’s a generous 60-day money-back guarantee. You can pay via major credit/debit cards or PayPal.
The website has a comprehensive knowledgebase that covers the most important topics. There’s also a blog that looks at general issues. If you don’t find your answers there, you can always contact support (which is available 24/7) via live chat, phone, and email. I went for the live chat and promptly connected to a knowledgeable agent who answered all my questions.
