VimlyHost was founded in Durham, England, in June 2016. It launched its first public services in September 2017, and in February 2018, it overhauled its client management system. By September 2019, this host had set up brand new NVMe SSD-powered servers in London, and by October 2019, it had rebranded from VimlyHost to Vimly Digital.
To date, Vimly Digital has accumulated 2,500 clients and 1,000 active websites, and it has resolved 2,000 support tickets. Its website is in English.
Features and Ease of Use
Vimly Digital offers four cPanel shared hosting plans (Value, Startup, Professional, and Business) that provide you with:
- CloudLinux OS
- cPanel control panel
- 99.9% uptime guarantee (though its current average uptime is 100%)
- One to unlimited hosted websites
- 2 GB unmetered storage
- Unlimited bandwidth
- Unlimited email addresses and MySQL databases
- Free Let’s Encrypt SSL
- Free daily backups
- Support for Python, NodeJS, and Ruby (except on the Value plan)
- Git support

- Free website migration
You can create your website with the SitePad website builder’s drag and drop interface and 350+ unique themes; no coding required. Alternatively, you can use the Softaculous installer to install popular programs — such as WordPress, PrestaShop, or Joomla — with a single click.
The Cloudflare CDN provides for faster page loading speeds (thanks to local caching of content) and protection against some kinds of cyberattacks.
The Samsung NVMe SSD storage is up to five times faster than regular SSDs and 25 times faster than conventional HDDs. The daily backups are stored offsite for 28 days, and you can restore them right from the control panel.
Pricing and Support
Vimly Digital’s shared hosting plans are pricey, and you can pay for them in British pounds by PayPal, credit/debit card, or other methods on request. Available billing cycles are monthly, bi-annual, annual, biennial, and triennial, with discounts of up to 30% for the longer terms.
You get a free .com/.org/.net/.co.uk domain name when you sign up for the Business plan for six months or when you sign up for the Startup/Professional plans for twelve months. Taking the Value plan on a twelve-month term gives you a free co.uk, me.uk, or .uk domain.
The 14-day money-back guarantee gives you two weeks to change your mind providing you bought directly from the website without a discount code.
