Hostwinds Review-Rich Features

At Hostwinds, it can provide two levels of shared hosting: shared unlimited web hosting and business hosting. Besides, Hostwinds also has VPS and dedicated hosting solutions. To ensure the quality of servers, Hostwinds offers rich features. 

Hostwinds Unlimited Shared Hosting

Since Hostwinds has multiple different services, here, we take its shared unlimited web hosting as an example. It comes with Basic, Advanced and Ultimate three plans, and each of them includes different amounts of guaranteed resources and features, and can address customers’ basic & high level requirements greatly.

Firstly, Hostwinds shared hosting provides unlimited disk space, bandwidth, sub domains, email accounts, FTP logins, MySQL databases, and up to unlimited add-on domains. Hostwinds is also one of the few web hosts who offers free dedicated IP address to ensure customers better SEO effect.

Moreover, customers can get full supports of scripts and development languages, plenty of PHP memory, hotlink protection, IP deny manager, redirect URL, web-based file manager, AWStats, webalizer, protected directories and more.

Hostwinds integrates the latest and easy-to-use cPanel control panel and Softaculous into its shared hosting solutions. By making complete use of these tools, customers, even for web beginners, can set up CMSs-based websites with few simple clicks, and manage their domains, emails, accounts and the entire websites conveniently and easily.

Once customers’ demands grow, Hostwinds allows them to upgrade advanced Business hosting solution, VPS or premium dedicated server smoothly.

Hostwinds Premium VPS Hosting

For meeting different needs, Hostwinds tailors its VPS hosting into five solutions, namely Budget VPS, Premium VPS, Windows VPS, SSD Linux VPS, and SSD Windows VPS. And all Hostwinds VPS hosting solutions are scalable and fully managed by its award-winning support team.

Hostwinds Budget VPS, as the name implies, is the most affordable solution among the five. Incorporating OpenVZ virtualization, Hostwinds Budget VPS is configured with at least 0.5 CPU core, 1GB guaranteed RAM, 1.25GB burstable RAM, 25GB disk space, unmetered transfer in 100Mbps speed, and nightly backups. After discounting, Hostwinds Budget VPS charges from $6.88/mo instead of $7.50/mo normally.

Hostwinds Premium VPS, based on Linux platform, features in greater stability and speed when compared to the budget VPS due to the utilization of KVM virtualization for guaranteed resource isolation. People with this hosting solution can benefit from choice of image, improved App security, and more server resources. Besides, the price is also reasonable that starts at $13.50/mo. For a yearly plan, customers just need to pay with $12.38/mo after discounting.

Hostwinds Windows VPS is designed with the same features and prices as Hostwinds Premium VPS except the operating system of Windows Server 2012 or Windows Server 2008.

Other more, no matter customers sign up with Hostwinds SSD Windows VPS or Hostwinds SSD Linux VPS, their plans can be ensured the latest enterprise grade SSD drives and superior hardware on all hosting nodes. Customers can outfit the configurable VPS servers with up to 8 CPU cores, 35GB RAM, 170GB SSD storage, and unlimited bandwidth with 1000Mbps transfer speed. Likewise, the discounted price of the hosting solution is $12.38/mo rather than $13.50/mo.

From the above, it’s easy to find that Hostwinds VPS hosting is offered abundant features allowing customers to build professional small to medium business websites as required. Importantly, the price is quite reasonable without increasing the financial burden on people. Even when compared with some best managed VPS hosting like InMotion Hosting or Bluehost, Hostwinds doesn’t lose price advantage.

Apart from the above, Hostwinds also offers the latest cPanel control panel with many practical elements, such as Webalizer, web based file manager, Redirect URL, hotlink protection, and so on.

Besides, Hostwinds can provide business hosting which is greater than normal shared hosting and ideal for business. Actually, Hostwinds business hosting is quite similar to shared unlimited hosting, except one key feature, Litespeed Webserver. It is easy to use with Apache system, and has better performance and security.

Hostwinds Review-Uptime & Data Center

Hostwinds understands the importance of uptime to its customers, so the company works hard to keep them from downtime and guarantees 99.9% uptime.

Hostwinds utilizes its own data center to host customers’ servers. The data center is located in the first technology market center in the world, the Dallas Infomart.

Hostwinds Review-Drawbacks 

Hostwinds budget pricing is not enough. Hostwinds claims to provide high-class servers with budget prices, but compared to some of its competitors like Arvixe or InMotion Hosting, the prices of Hostwinds are still higher than them. However, this is not a big drawback, because Hostwinds is affordable!

I had no downtime, very few reasons to contact support and the site was always working amazingly fast. They are delivering great service with no noticeable downtime in last months. Though some of my sites uses a lot of memory I have faced one issue with Hostwinds. They replied in 1 hour and this was not very good for me. But all in all, they solved all the troubles very fast. I am glad. Recommend these guys.

I can't say enough about HostWinds. Their service and technical support have been excellent, and they've been both responsive and patient through my endless questions. They've really gone above and beyond for our company, and we're recommending HostWinds for all of our customers. All our new Magento ecommerce sites are hosted with HostWinds, as we've been very impressed. Thanks guys again for all of the help and support!

Good job, hostwinds team. They are already set up and ready for Joomla and similar applications, and the customer support has always been prompt and helpful. We have not noticed any downtime or email issues and they are always sending message about new and upgraded features they add to the standard packages.

Highly recommended for anyone who wants an inexpensive, easy to user hosting provider.

I have been a hosting client of Hostwinds for several months and appreciate that Michael has always responded fast to problems, as well as the reasonable prices. I look forward to many more years as a client. Their support is outstanding. Very fast and friendly. Even I'm using my Hostwinds for a short time, I'm very happy with my choice. The hosting package is coming with a bunch of free software, like 1- Click WordPress installation and unlimited databases.
