Nimbus Hosting is a web hosting company based in England that focuses on providing scalable hosting solutions. The company is proud to be English and aims to provide services that are supported by a "welcoming and personable team."
Nimbus Hosting provides a variety of online services including VPS and dedicated hosting. Though its hosting services are suitable to individuals, the company focuses on providing solutions for large and small businesses needing scalable solutions to handle growing traffic.
Customers needing a simple website such as a small forum or ecommerce site and not expecting too much traffic should consider the entry level VPS plan from Nimbus Host. These plans have a physical to virtual ratio of 1 to 25 which means that 25 virtual servers are hosted on a single physical server. In theory, the lower the ratio a plan has, the faster the service. But practically, each VPS has its own own allocated memory and disk resources. Thus, each VPS should perform roughly the same.
The entry level plans feature ample amounts of disk space, at least 1 GB of RAM, and different amounts of monthly bandwidth. The plans also support standard control panels such as cPanel, WHM, and Plesk for configuration and billing. Customers needing to host larger company websites and ecommerce stores should select advanced VPS plans that allow for greater amount of bandwidth, disk space, and RAM. Both sets of plans support multiple OSes including Linux and Windows.
Besides ordering VPS plans from Nimbus Hosting, customers can select from a range of dedicated server plans. These plans feature HP servers equipped with Intel processors that vary by the number of CPU cores, RAM, and disk space. The disks for the dedicated servers is based on SSD technology and comes with hardware RAID for faster response and increased reliability. The dedicated server plans are ideal for websites expecting high traffic and heavily utilizing databases. Like the VPS plans, the dedicated server plans feature support for versions of Linux and Windows.
Though Nimbus Hosting offers similar plans like other hosting providers, the company seems to understand the needs of online businesses. In particular, the company specializes in Magento ecommerce software. It realizes that platforms like Magento are resource intensive and require a great deal of memory. As a result, the company's hosting plans offers its customers features like "Power Boost" which gives a website a temporary memory boost in the case a store experiences a sales boom. Besides hosting plans, Nimbus Hosting feature support for SSL Certificates and server backups.
Nimbus Hosting's infrastructure consists of servers located in North London. The servers feature Intel processors and are continuously monitored by a 3rd party company. The plans have a 99.9% uptime guarantee backed up by an SLA that features credits, subject to certain conditions, in case a customer experiences downtime.
Customers who need help with their plans can reach Nimbus Hosting via email and phone from 8 am to 5:30 pm weekdays. Nimbus will respond within 10 minutes and resolve the issue within one business day. The company also has a support ticket system as well as a knowledgebase. If customers really like the service they receive, they an even buy the team members an alcoholic beverage through PayPal.
Nimbus Hosting provides customers flexibility in billing. Customers ordering service can choose to pay monthly, quarterly, or yearly. Those paying upfront for a longer term can enjoy a discount. Nimbus accepts multiple forms of payment including bank draft, major credit cards, and PayPal.
Nimbus Hosting, a proudly British hosting company full of passionate team members, offers its customers VPS and dedicated server hosting plans. Customers needing hosting plans focused on the needs of online business will find much to enjoy about Nimbus Hosting.
