With a global network of servers, Hong Kong-based VPShosting specializes in offering advanced alternatives to regular shared hosting services. Its prices are slightly high, but maybe you get what you pay for.


Overview

VPShostingHong 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 packagesStarter, 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.

Although VPShosting provides several communication channels, I couldn’t summon pre-sales support via either email or the ticket support system. When I finally received a live chat response, it was merely to divert me back to ticket support. Fortunately, for self-support, VPShosting offers an informative knowledge base:

Bottom line on VPShosting

VPShosting has a lot to offer in terms of high-end hosting solutions, and I could overlook the slightly high prices for the quality of services you get. Offering a more advanced alternative to your regular shared hosting services is what makes VPShosting stand out. The only thing I can’t overlook is the inadequate customer support.

Pros

  • SSD storage
  • 14-day money-back guarantee
  • Plesk control panel
  • VPS packages for both Windows and Linux

Cons

  • Unresponsive customer support
  • Slightly high prices
