There's not much to say about VikingHost. This fully managed hosting, CDN, and cloud storage company has an attractive but sparsely populated website, which means you have to contact the company for even the most basic information.

Overview

VikingHost

VikingHost is fine, but fine is not good enough. While VikingHost is a decent web host, you can get better quality hosting at a cheaper price with Hostinger, for example.

VikingHost looks and feels like a top-tier hosting firm, but it’s hard to tell from its professional-looking but sparsely populated website. Its saving grace has to be the fact that it offers a fully managed server rental service so you can concentrate on running your business.

This firm is based in Amsterdam and has servers in Sofia, so it’s not quite as Nordic as the name suggests, and its website is in English.

Features and Ease of Use

It’s somewhat ironic that VikingHost claims to operate on a global scale (like GoDaddy or HostGator) yet doesn’t say much about its Managed Hosting services. However, this is not so unusual for fully managed hosting providers that sometimes like to play their cards close to their chests.

What I can tell you is that VikingHost’s Global CDN comprised of 25+ localized nodes gives it the capability to serve up content from thousands of CDN servers around the world, thereby enhancing the page loading performance of your website.

Moving your data to the cloud could be one of the smartest decisions you ever make. VikingHost’s Cloud Storage seems easy to set up, is cost-effective, and includes an expandable storage system. Once you sign up, you can use as much or as little of the expandable storage space as you like.

Pricing and Support

As is typical of fully managed hosting service providers, no prices are advertised, and you can’t purchase hosting plans online. You have to contact the company to get a quote by filling out the online contact form:

VikingHost

Since there is nothing for you to manage yourself, there are no self-support resources. This is fine for a managed service provider, so what worries me more is the lack of contact details and no mention of service-level agreements or any other terms.

Bottom line on VikingHost

VikingHost may well be a top-class managed hosting company, but I can’t give it top marks due to the sheer scarcity of information on its website. I can’t help thinking that not many potential customers will bother to fill out the contact form merely to obtain the additional information that is openly advertised by many other hosting companies (even the fully managed ones).

Still not sure if this is the right web host for you? Check out our top recommended web hosts to learn more.
