I am a Blogger and wanted to launch a website that offers online courses comprised of my own video lectures. As I was just starting and got a Hosting. I had a usual complaint of Down-time that was terrible for my limited viewers and members. I once used VPS service from InterServer and had Excellent customer service and overall Services experience. I decided to go with InterServer. I just got and account with a price that is almost One Third of what I was paying to my previous host, but the services that are far better that them. I love the team of InterServer that shows a family picture and they consider their clients as family memeber and here their complaints with utmost priority.

I am now with InterServer and will be with them.

InterServer Rocks.... Great Job Keep up the excellent work.

Interserver is a great hosting company that provides me with everything to run my website/ websites. Interserver is great for small business and or Entrepreneurs. What I like most so far is you get quality product, and customer service for a price others cannot beat.

I needed cron jobs for my site to make sure my site runs smoothly, well my previous web hosting company did not support it. With Interserver I don't have to get in a contract like with other hosting companies. I like the speed of their servers, my site comes up just like that. Awesome. The customer service is good, I had to get some info and someone got back to me within 15 minutes via email. Their response time is very fast. I could see Interserver in the Top Rankings in great offering great hosting products and customer service at an affordable price range.

I have been using interserver for over a year. I would give them 8/10. They have good support, value for money plans. There was a bit of performance issue on some occasions on my VPS, but that may be because I have lower end box.
If you are on a shared hosting and want to make sure that your site wont go slow because other sites sharing the same server are taking too much resources, you can switch to a VPS. interserver provides quality hosting for very economical price. You can start with lower end box and then upgrade when your site gets more hits and revenues.

Overall worth a switch if you want good economical VPS and want good support.

Pretty good actually, would recommend it, haven't really seen many issues with it, recommended a lot.

So far it's actually you can't argue over, it's good for money, and for the price of it, I'd highly recommend this to other people
Like pretty much every vps out there I guess but supposedly one of the best,

Uptime is amazing aswell, It's amazing how they keep their vps servers up so long without them stopping, however, no issues were found when I was using it.

At a whole, I like it a lot, it's good, nice to use, probably one of the best I've ever used, gonna stick with this for a while

Interserver is a good host if you are on a budget ...

I got my domain and my hosting from them and the price wasn't too unreasonable..

Everything else was fine. Standard features. Perfect up time , Friendly Customer support I didn't notice any downtime myself. Great for the value, would use again!

I love interserver for there customer friendly programs, ability to accept and carry along every customers and their affiliate regardless of their status. I also give kudos to interserver for their relatively low cost products in; web hosting, domain name cheapest, cares for the pertnerss, wealth creation for the low income earniers and more.
I am telling openly i have never got the down time with interserver for accessory support is windblown all my tickets get resolved with in max 2-5 hrs.

Now i have 4-5 dedicated and couples of VPS with interserver. I am getting best rates with interserver with excellent support.

Keep it up guys are guys are champ !!!

I think Interserver is much better than other service provider which I have tried.

Reasons:
1. It is easy to setup the VPS in just 4 steps with domain
2. The best thing about interserver is their amazing uptime and stability. I have used many cheaper hosting services previously and have always had at least some problems with their uptime and support.
3. You can upgrade between other plans anytime
4. Accepts Paypal, and almost all the international cards
5. Get full root access

Only been with Interserver for about three months, but I have not yet had a problem with them. Never seen any real downtime, pretty good speed for a shared server, great price for all the features, ok prices on domains, several ways to contact them, good affiliate program. I would definitely recommend Interserver to anyone who needs a cheap and reliable web host.

First of all, I should disclose that this review came into existence because of their ”Review Us” offer which credits $5 to spend on your account if you review them. That being said, I assure you that what I am about to write is my honest opinion about their services. I purchased the Standard Hosting option ($5/month at the time of this review) and I chose them after a lot of careful consideration. I read maybe hundreds of reviews both on them and on other hosting services, and they all led to me agreeing to work with them.

I had a few basic needs, and they fulfilled them. Those needs were:

- payment on a monthly basis. There's really not much to say about this. If it's important to you that you can do this, they offer you this possibility. Not everyone does. In fact, I think most hosting companies only want you to pay for 6 or 12 months at least. This way, you'll find it harder to discontinue their service. Not really a fan of paying in advance, I am.
- fixed price (I cannot stretch the importance of this point enough). What this means is that you pay the same amount each month. While it may seem like a basic right a customer should have when buying anything that requires a subscription, most hosting companies don't grant you that. You see, they are businesses which need to make money, so when you find what seems to be a decent hosting company with low prices (under $5 or so) you need to start wondering if you truly understand how they work. My worst experience was with a hosting company that advertised $0.50/month when in fact, that was only for the first month (the following being at $14.5/month). That's simply unacceptable, and while you won't really find such differences, those that you do find will be relevant nonetheless. Interserver offers a guarantee that your price won't go up.
- Unlimited email addresses.
- Unlimited domains per one account.

This is what I was looking for in particular. That's not all they have to offer, so visiting their site, studying all they give you for the package you think best fits your needs, is a must. However, regardless of what you want or need, I was pleasantly surprised by their support. It really is amazing (and I say this without any exaggeration). They responded within hours each time and they encourage that you engage with them in a discussion so as to solve your issue as fast as possible. You'll find that helps a lot, even if you don't think so right now.

I'm from Brazil and I do not speak good English language, but the support of Interserver can suit me very well.
This company is very old and is very well your customers.

Only once my sites were down and so I got in touch with the support of Interserver they decided at the time.

Whenever I asked for help even if it is some WordPress configuration they always help me, then they come into my WordPress dashboard and solve the problem.

I am using InterServer's web hosting for more then 2 years. I am currently running 3 websites at InterServer, and up to this moment I didn't have any problems with my websites (they are always up and running 24/7).

And when I had some minor issues concerning other aspects of your service - InterServer's support team was very expeditive and fast in solving those issues.

I hope that I will keep using InterServer's web hosting service since I'm very satisfied up to this moment with their service.

Interserver offers a fair package price for the features selected. They appear to have the best pricing in comparison with dozens of others, including well known brands. They seem to respond quickly to support questions, and they are reachable by phone. These are the things that define a good hosting company.

I've had amazing experience so far. They're very quick to offer support and when they're able, they're very good about doing everything they can to help you resolve whatever you're coming to them with. I've rarely had problems, but they've been in connecting to cPanel and webmail. I've never had a problem with website downtime. The cPanel interface could use a makeover, but it's functional and fairly easy to use for those who know what they're looking for. Overall in my experience with interserver, I've had a very positive ride, and I'm happy to host my websites with them.

Excess Interserver:

24/7 Phone, Live Chat, and Ticket system support.
Online forums.
Responsive and quick response.

The company was supper great for the first few years , support was A+++ John Q is the best,
But after been with them for the last 3+ years the last few months .(well let say the support super
SUCKS why you leave a ticket taks for ever for them to get back with you and then they want
to know what wrong, Will just look at the ticket, 3 hrs later steal nothing. Yes the bigger the company get
the more they hire new help and the new help don't care for clients they just want there pay checks and pass it
on to the next support team. the live chat will tell you to go leave a ticket, or they or working on it.
so the server or AAA+ as long as you don't need any help because Support, Super Sucks, and live chat just pass
the buck, It hard to say but I have to move to a better company fast.

Excellent services and wide range of options available, can be customized to nearly any needs. No additional surcharges or hidden costs. Prices are really cheap comparing to others on the market. Fast servers, decent support database, quick response times as well as from the support team team. Ability to add/remove features and services in one click are great. Really like their services.

Here's my very very honest review since I was once a customer of this web hosting. I rated 5 stars for the support because its support teams are helpful and very efficient. I rated 5 stars for the features and value because the features were amazing and it was worth the price. I rated 4 stars on the uptime because NO web hosting company have consistent perfect uptime - there are really downtimes and that's business. That's it for now! Thank you so much for reading my brief review of InterServer Web Hosting.

I liked everything to be automated. I liked the menus for creating and construction of new VPS. But could better the cancellation of VPS purchases. I can not cancel an order. I liked you can install and delete the operating system. I wanted the part of e-mail server creation was a little better. Even for those who know little about it.

I am interserver customer from past 12 years. Support is top notch. This is the reason why i never moved out of interserver.
Server prices are bit expensive but the value of money is more. Support is very excellent.

Why do I say this?
Because it's the absolute truth. Everything about this is good. I see no flaws in the system, and the customer support was great!

Best in VPS server services. We have lot of vps servers around world. Before buy it, we love to test sevices, buy a small vps for example and if all works as expected, move to a "serious" VPS. We have been whit Interserver for a month and so far so good. Low downtime, no need of support, servers and services works good whit no effort. So we recommend Interserver VPS services. If you are a starter, Interserver has promos, 1 Month VPS for just $1 i gues.

I have used interserver.net Hosting for around 3 month . The technical documents are very good and suprisingly, most of the time I can figure out what to do by the online instruction. However, if I am unable to understand what to do and need to call, the guys at interserver Hosting absolutely provide the best customer service.

Interserver is offering VPS service with very reasonable price on high standards. Some time VPS service goes down due to some cache memory issue i assume otherwise its a good platform to host my applications. Their support service is good i get response every-time with in one hour tops. I experienced other services as well and i found InterServer is very cheap with a good quality service so to me its affordable.

Inter server is the best provider i ever had! I am using windows vps with them and the uptime is amazing. I am running my tools without any problems. I am gonna opt in for web hosting too. Main thing i like about interserver is, the support is always 100%, fast and extremely professional. And with the pricing of just around 8$ p.m for windows vps, am really happy to be a long term client of interserver.

In short highly recommended professional service. Go for it!

Bottom line: GREAT product!

I migrated from Time4VPS to Interserver because the file upload was too slow (I'm located in Israel), and ever since I got my VPS there wasn't one moment when I felt sorry for that.

The server was launched within minutes, I had their great support by my side at all time (that's their biggest advantage - GREAT support), and whenever I needed help I got it immediately via chat or tickets, even when it was about 3rd party software.

Recommended for everyone: developers and production websites.

We have both our company's web hosting and additional VPS servers with Interserver and they work great. There have been no significant problem in over a year. We use VPS servers for sending company newsletters. Support tickets are solved very fast. There are no hidden policies if you want to cancel the service like other providers.

I'm a user of Interserver's webhosting service. I'm very satisfied with them for the following reasons:

- Affordable price. The price is quite reasonable ($6 per month) with unlimited domains, storage and bandwidth.
- Quick customer service response. I have opened multiple tickets and they responded within one or two hours.
- More technical options than other hosts. I can choose different versions of PHP, turn on or off some specific modules which many other hosts do not offer.

I was contacting Interserver in a very difficult situation for my customers hosting services and emails. I was happy to resolve my problems in 24 hours with Interserver offers and, because the initial bonus, without any cost for me. After, next month, I had all the times to become familiar with the details of the service, view how greats they are and so to decide upon payments, to maintain this level of hosting. So many domains hosted included, so many emails, unlimited storages, and so on, it's amazing! Unlimited IPs missing to become incredible! I am decided to upgrade to a higher service, near future.

Two years ago I decided to switch hosting companies and move over to Interserver because I had heard great reviews about them. I'm very happy that I did.

I am associated with interserver since last 2.5 year. I have more then 20 active VPS with them. I express their support is too fast then the competitors. I really like their support and pricing.

also i like their quick setup panel so we can create and install vps by own without waiting too much for activation. They provide free migration in cpanel which is too good.

Interserver

interserver.net Location: US Founded: 1999

Interserver Introduction

Interserver is an American hosting provider that has a fairly broad remit, although it promotes quality over price on most of its catalogue. Since 1999 the company has served clients from its own data centre in Secaucus, New Jersey, and it also has its own nationwide fibre network - an impressive achievement.

Interserver appears to be privately owned and says that its core team has been with the company since its inception. It serves businesses of all sizes. Its hosting plans are aimed at business users.

Interserver Hosting Plans

The Interserver website splits its hosting plans into several categories. Its focus appears to be VPS hosting; that’s where the most options lie.

We’ll step through its hosting packages in the order they’re promoted on the site.

● Web hosting is essentially shared hosting, although it’s titled cloud web hosting on the product page. All resources are unlimited, including disk space, bandwidth, databases and email. Customers can host unlimited domains.
● Reseller hosting is a fairly standard product split into five variants. Disk space and bandwidth are metered. Interestingly, MySQL is installed on SSD for faster performance.
● Cloud VPS hosting can be purchased on OpenVZ or KVM, Linux or Windows, and in a West Coast or East Coast data centre. Each is priced on ‘slices’, with a slider allowing customers to select the resources they need. The prices do include management, but only for software installed by Interserver or installed via the control panel.
● Dedicated hosting is offered in two separate plans: Quick Servers and regular dedicated servers. There are a few basic dedicated plans that can be configured; Quick Servers were not on sale at the time of this review.

Interserver also offers colocation at its New Jersey data centre.

Interserver Uptime/Downtime

Interserver provides a 100 per cent power uptime guarantee on colocation. This is not an uptime guarantee, though.

As for the uptime guarantee: well, it’s confusing. There’s no obvious uptime guarantee on its web hosting (shared hosting) product, but there is a 99.9 per cent uptime guarantee on the VPS plans. On the data centre specs page, uptime is quoted as being 99.5 per cent. This is pretty poor compared to other hosts.

There don’t appear to be any uptime stats on the website, although there’s a Network Tools page; it returned a 404 when I visited it.

As mentioned at the start of the review, Intserver has its own data centre in New Jersey and appears to rent space in a facility in California. There’s a data centre camera on the site, but either the camera or the applet wasn’t working when this review was composed. There are some photos and specs, though. The data centre is split into two facilities, each occupying 8,000 square feet. Features include HVAC, overhead air conditioning, raised floors, biometric locks, fire suppression and UPS power.

I found information about backups in a forum post from June 2012, although I’ve no reason to believe the information has changed. According to the post, shared and reseller hosting accounts are backed up daily, weekly and monthly. VPS and dedicated server plans are not backed up. A more recent post on the Intserver blog suggests that VPS customers use the backup facility in cPanel: http://www.interserver.net/blog/setting-up-your-new-server-an-interserver-tutorial/

Interserver Support

Support is provided via a web portal, and support staff appear to be based in-house. There’s a (very small) knowledgebase, a forum and a ticket system. Some of the resources shown in the portal, such as the Troubleshooter, don’t actually link to anything.

Telephone support is provided 24/7, and there’s also a live chat support feature which is 24/7. On the support site there’s a news blog, which is actually more of a general hosting blog, plus a variety of social media links.

Interserver in the News

After a little research, I didn’t find anything about Intserver in the news.

Interserver Control Panel

Intserver offers cPanel on Linux plans; it’s a paid add-on with VPS plans, as you’d expect, and you’ll need to be using the right Linux distribution. Users can also use Directadmin. Windows servers don’t come with a control panel.

Interserver Extras

The freebies on offer at Interserver don’t differ much from other hosting providers. Shared hosting customers can use a site builder tool and benefit from a range of one-click installers (WordPress, Joomla, phpBB, SMF and so on). There are no marketing or advertising credits on offer.

Interserver Money Back Guarantee / Cancellation Policy

Interserver provides peace of mind via a 30-day money-back guarantee on shared hosting plans only. Dedicated server, VPS and colocation customers can request a refund prior to their server being set up. Plans are billed monthly, and there are no long term contracts or exit fees: if you want to leave, just cancel and you won’t be billed after your current month is up.

Interserver Summary

Interserver strikes me as having settled into its niche, and it clearly has the technical infrastructure to consider itself established. I imagine much of its revenue comes from colocation in its New Jersey data centre. This is reflected in the fact that support material is a little light, and little details - such as the uptime guarantee - aren’t consistently advertised. Its packages aren’t that distinctive, but they’re affordable, and I was impressed by the scalability of its VPS hosting plans.
