XsToCloud is a Dutch company that provides a range of innovative hosting services in its attempt to appeal to a much wider audience across the globe. The hosting company sells, among other services, shared web hosting, reseller hosting, domain name services, VPS, online storage and backups, and SSL certificates. The XsToCloud website can be accessed in two languages: English and Dutch.
Features and Ease of Use
XsToCloud has programmed its hosting services with the powerful and easy-to-use DirectAdmin control panel. The control panel comes with many features that make it easy for you to manage your websites, DNS, email accounts, databases, and more. Its hosting services also come with the following standard features:
- PHP Versions 5.6, 7.0, 7.2, 7.3
- View website statistics
- DDoS security
- Free Let’s Encrypt SSL certificates
- FTP over SSL/TLS and SFTP
- 30+ pre-installed apps (WordPress, Drupal, Joomla, etc)
The company’s 6-in-one shared web hosting solution (Hosting Clean, Hosting Starter, Hosting Basic, Hosting Advanced, Hosting Pro, and Hosting Ultimate) are distinguished by increasing resources. And while the starter plan, Hosting Clean, comes with just 2GB disk space and 10GB worth of data traffic, the advanced plan includes 140GB disk space and unlimited data traffic.
As of February 10, 2019, XsToCloud made an announcement stating that it had moved its hardware resources to the ISO-certified green data center of BIT internet technology located in the Netherlands. The move was inspired by the desire of this vendor to expand its hosting resources so that it can serve its customers’ interests better.
As part of data loss protection, this hosting company offers several ways through which customers can be able to protect their website data; users can either hire the vendor to take backups for them or they can simply make backups themselves directly from their control panels. The backup process is fully automatic and they are made available at any time.
Pricing and Support
XsToCloud’s euro-priced hosting services are quite cheap and they also seem to balance well in terms of features included. The hosting solutions are advertised with a single monthly billing cycle, but on the checkout, users would have to subscribe to at least 1-year payment options.
There is no free trial or money-back guarantee, but customers get a 99.9% uptime server availability with all the accounts.
XsToCloud’s support team is available 24/7 via telephone, email or by sending them a support ticket. Alternatively, you can opt to chat with them online.
Self-support resources include the “customer system home” portal with useful links for News & Announcements as well as a knowledge base section.
