Is HQserv the host for you?
By Jaramy Conners
HQserv is an Israel-based web hosting provider. Founded in 2008, they specialize in dedicated and virtual servers, as well as colocation services.
HQserv offers 4 dedicated server configurations. All of their servers run on Intel Xeon processors, have a 100Mbps network port, provide unlimited monthly traffic, and can be configured for Windows or Linux.
Servers vary based on the processor speed, RAM, storage space, hard drive type, and the number of IP addresses available. Additional bandwidth and IP addresses can also be purchased for a small monthly fee.
HQserv also provides fully-customizable VPS hosting. Rather than selecting from a list of pre-configured systems, clients can tailor their server based on a list of configuration options. All of their servers feature unmetered bandwidth and are connected to a 10 Gbps network.
Clients can specify the number of processor cores, RAM, HDD storage space, bandwidth, and the number of dedicated IP addresses. A large selection of operating systems are available, including CentOS, Ubuntu, Debian, FreeBSD, SUSE, Gentoo, and Windows Server. For control panels, clients can choose between Direct Admin, cPanel, Plesk, and WebsitePanel.
For clients who prefer to host their own computer, colocation services are also available. They offer 1U and 2U packages, both of which offer unmetered 50 Mbps connections. Additional bandwidth and dedicated IP addressees are also available upon request.
In addition to their dedicated servers, HQserv offers two shared hosting plans. Each features DirectAdmin control panel, MySQL databases, and private email. Plans vary based on the number of websites they can host, monthly bandwidth, the number of email accounts that can be created, and the maximum number of databases they will support.
The HQserv datacenter offers multiple high-speed fiber data lines for high-availability Internet access. Their facility and network operations are monitored 24 hours a day.
Every client is provided their own, private Local Area Network. This network can be utilized for a single server or to link multiple servers together via a 100 Mbps connection. For added security, no two clients will ever share a LAN connection.
HQserv offers customer support via telephone or online service ticket 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. All inquiries are managed by dedicated support engineers.
HQserv accepts payment via PayPal, Moneybookers, and bitcoin.
Since this is an international host, it is not always possible to find all of the resources you would expect from a hosting site on their English pages. In this case:
If you’re looking for an Israeli private hosting service, HQserv is definitely worth your consideration. They offer a nice selection of new dedicated servers, and the ability to completely customize your VPS configuration is very appealing.
In terms of shared hosting, however, there are plenty of other providers who offer more features and better specs for the cost. Unless you’re committed to an Israel-based shared server, or you are adding it to an existing package, you may want to check elsewhere.
