VPSGet is a British website hosting company that provides shared hosting, virtual private servers, and dedicated server rentals. They were founded relatively recently in 2013, yet they have already received a good reception on independent review sites. Their servers are located in a Tier III data center in the Netherlands, and (as a British business) their website is obviously in English.
Features and Ease of Use
VPSGet sells the usual website hosting services – shared, dedicated, virtual private servers – as well as a range of hosting add-ons. As standard, their shared hosting plans come with the following features:
- 99.9% uptime guarantee, monitored by a third party
- Automatic external backups
- Domain registration at an additional cost
- From 2 GB to 60 GB web space
- From 500 MB to 3 TB bandwidth
VPSGet uses top quality hardware and infrastructure. Their servers are housed in a Tier III data center, which means a maximum of two hours downtime per year, and they use SSD RAID 10 storage for faster, more reliable disk reads. All of their servers use brand name components such as Supermicro, Dell, Intel, LSI, Kingston, and Samsung. A small consideration is that they do not own their own data center, so response times to technical issues may be a little slower.
Beginners get the above-par Softaculous one-click installer for over 300 programs, and experts get SSH access, but I’m a little surprised that there is no support for PHP or advanced coding languages such as Python or Ruby on Rails. All shared hosting plans come with basic 24/7 management.
Pricing and Support
VPSGet offers four shared hosting plans: from the basic Micro package (with 2 GB web space and 500 GB bandwidth) to the most expensive Professional package (with 600 GB web space and 4 TB of bandwidth). Domain registration and SSL certificates cost extra.
The prices of the lowest three packages are in line with other similar companies, but the highest package is quite expensive. So if reduced resource limits are satisfactory, I would be very tempted to tell you to go low.
Surprisingly for a UK company, their prices are listed in American dollars by default, but they can be converted into euros or pounds at the checkout. Plans can be purchased in six, twelve, twenty-four, and thirty-six-month terms, and you can get quite deep discounts by buying the longer terms. If you’re not yet sure about your prospective long-term commitment, you can take advantage of their 30-day money-back guarantee on all shared hosting plans.
You can contact this company by telephone, ticket, email, and live chat. While their technical support is 24/7, their live chat is available during more limited hours. Whenever I have contacted them via live chat, they have always picked up immediately and been very helpful too. VPSGet also boasts a substantial knowledge base as well as several social media channels.
