This company’s servers are built on super-fast SSD storage to maximize performance.
Pricing and Support
Looking for shared web hosting? Then you’ll be astonished at VPS9’s high priced plans, especially when you consider that SSL certificates (from Symantec, GeoTrust and RapidSSL) and the Softaculous one-click installer are optional paid extras. But these are not shared hosting services, and the VPS prices for a worldwide presence may well be worth the cost.
You can rent a VPS from VPS9 on one-, three-, six-, or twelve-month billing cycles. You can get a discount if you commit to more than a month at a time, and you can feel reasonably comfortable about doing this thanks to the 30-day money back guarantee (although this may be at odds with a 15-day money back guarantee mentioned elsewhere in the FAQs).
Payments can be made through PayPal, WebMoney, bank transfers, iDeal, Alipay, Yandex, Qiwi, Dotpay, UnionPay, TrustPay, and Giropay.
One thing I really like about VPS9 is the dedicated 24/7 support. Customer complaints, queries, and concerns are handled through multichannel support systems including phone, live chat, email, fax, or ticket. You can even write to the company! There is a well-populated knowledge base that should help a lot with self-support; and an FAQ section.
All agents were busy when I tried the live chat. But just one day later I received a comprehensive response via the ticket system, including an apology for not being able to attend to me sooner:
How much does VPS9 cost?VPS9 offers multiple plans priced highest to lowest. The price depends on which type of hosting plan you choose. You can see the updated pricing table (updated weekly) below.
Which VPS9 plan should I get?My recommendation is to start with a cheaper plan. You can always upgrade later on. VPS9 can help you with the migration to a more expensive plan. The increase in visitors many times takes longer than expected and you shouldn’t pay a lot of money until the need arises. Of course, your needs may vary, and you can consult with a hosting expert from VPS9 here.
How good is VPS9’s customer support?VPS9 is not ranked as one of our top web hosts. But that can also be a result of VPS9 being a small, under the radar, hosting provider. There are advantages to a small hosting company – as a customer, you are more important to them. You can also check out our comparison of the most popular web hosting services here.
