Hong Kong-based hosting provider VPShosting is a hosting brand of Asia Web Services Ltd. It was founded in 2007 and since then has been offering a wide range of advanced hosting solutions worldwide. Its products include WordPress hosting, VPS hosting, dedicated servers, cloud hosting, and reseller hosting.
VPShosting has an extensive globally-dispersed network of servers, and its website is available in both English and Chinese.
Features and Ease of Use
VPShosting’s WordPress hosting plans differ in their specifications, but they share some standard features, including:
- Daily backups
- SSD storage
- 99.9% uptime guarantee
- Free migration
- Plesk control panel
The Plesk control panel that comes as standard gives you full control over all aspects of your website. Its user-friendly interface means you don’t need any technical knowledge to use it. The built-in one-click app installer allows you to install all the apps you need to get your website up and running, as easily as when installing apps on your Android or Apple phone.
VPShosting will migrate your website for free, taking care of everything to guarantee a smooth migration.
Pricing and Support
VPShosting’s three WordPress hosting packages – Starter, Business, and Enterprise – differ in terms of storage, the number of websites, databases, and monthly visitor capacity. The slightly high prices are presented in Hong Kong dollars, and you can pay by PayPal, credit card, AliPay, Bitcoin, or bank transfer.
You can choose to be billed on terms from monthly to two-yearly, with longer periods meaning lower costs. You get a 14-day money-back guarantee at the start, so you can see if this host suits you.
