ViridWeb sells virtual and dedicated servers but no shared hosting solutions. You can be set up with a low cost virtual server solution at several worldwide locations, but don’t expect prompt pre-sales support.

Overview

ViridWeb overview

Indian hosting provider ViridWeb (which was previously called OffshoreGB.in) is based in Kolkata. Since 2009, It has provided high quality dedicated server solutions in multiple locations, and today it offers KVM VPS and dedicated servers to customers in more than 53 countries.

Note that none of the VPS solutions can be bought from ViridWeb’s English-language website at the time of this review.

Features and Ease of Use

ViridWeb’s website offers eight KVM VPS plans and 55 dedicated servers (across various locations, including Russia, France, the Netherlands, Germany, and Finland).

The KVM VPS plans provide you with:

  • 1 to 12 vCores
  • 1 GB to 64 GB DDR4 ECC RAM
  • 25 GB to 1.5 TB SSD storage in RAID 10 configuration
  • Daily backups
  • 1 TB to 20 TB bandwidth
  • 1 Gbps network

The SSD storage is far faster and more reliable than traditional HDD storage, and the RAID 10 configuration helps guard against disk data disasters. You get an SLA-backed 99.9% server uptime guarantee, which is typical for virtual servers. Unlimited monthly bandwidth at 1Gbps network means you don’t need to worry about paying extra for exceeding your traffic allowance, and some servers come with free DDoS protection.

Root access to virtual and dedicated servers give you complete control over your server, and remote server management means you can easily reboot your server, install your preferred operating system, and set up reverse DNS (rDNS).

Pricing and Support

ViridWeb’s VPS plans are cheap, and you can pay for them monthly in euros by PayPal or even with Bitcoins. Indian customers can also pay using a debit/credit card or internet banking. A 7-day full money-back guarantee lets you test the services for a week at relatively little risk.

You should be able to contact this company’s 24/7 customer support team by ticket, email, live chat, or online contact form. I say “should” because live chat was unavailable when I wanted to try it, and my exploratory email went unanswered. The self-support resources aren’t much better because the knowledge base contains only nine entries:

Bottom line on ViridWeb

ViridWeb could be worth considering for cheap virtual and dedicated server solutions. However, there is a question mark over whether you can actually buy the virtual servers which are showing as “out of stock” at the time of this review.
