Is S1Host the host for you?
By Brian Wu
S1Host is a web hosting company based in Pairaba, Brazil. It was founded in 2009 and strives to be the go-to resource for hosting in Brazil. S1Host strives "to take care of your website, so you have time to take care of your customer."
S1Host offers a wide range of plans for shared, VPS, and dedicated hosting. Though it has plans based in multiple countries, the company's primary target market consists of individuals and small businesses in Brazil that need high-quality hosting on a tight budget.
One type of the plans offered by S1Host is Linux shared hosting. These plans are split up into groups that allow for single and multiple domains. All the shared Linux plans have many unlimited features including bandwidth, email accounts, databases, and sub-domains. The shared plans are hosted on an Apache web server and feature support for SSL, website statistics, MySQL, and PHP. In addition to regular shared plans, S1Host offers reseller plans which support WHMCS while limiting disk space and offering unlimited bandwidth for some of the plans.
Besides shared and reseller hosting, the company offers a few VPS plans for customers expecting more website traffic. The VPS plans feature hosting with Xen and standard virtualization that vary by the amount of RAM and SSD storage along with the number of CPUs. All the unmanaged VPS plans feature at least a single dedicated IP address and have a high-speed, 1 Gbps network link. Customers who don't want to deal with complex server setup can choose managed VPS plans which include completely configured cPanel software, firewalls, DNS, and Apache web servers. In addition, the managed plans have an optimized version of MySQL along with the latest updates to the OS and cPanel. When customers choose a managed plan, they get at least 2 IP addresses, powerful processors, initial server hardening, and DDoS protection. Customers who need even more dedicated resources can also choose from a set of dedicated server plans. Like the VPS plans, these plans use processors with multiple cores and vary by CPU speed, RAM, and disk space. The dedicated server plans also include 10 TB of bandwidth and DDoS protection.
S1Host also features a set of audio streaming plans. These plans are split up into different quality bands, namely 64 and 128 kbps, with a limited number of listeners and disk space but unlimited bandwidth. Customers looking to host their own online radio program should consider streaming plans from S1Host.
S1Host's infrastructure consists of datacenters located throughout the US: Dallas, Chicago, and Los Angeles. S1Host uses only Dell and HP servers loaded with CloudLinux and LiteSpeed webservers. The company's networks comprise of fiber optics and many of its servers have high-speed, 1 Gbps connections. Because of its infrastructure, S1Host is able to offer a 99.9% uptime guarantee on all its plans.
Customers who are having issues with their hosting service can get in touch with S1Host's support team in many ways including support tickets and live chat. Customers who have the time can also consult notices posted on the website or articles in the knowledgebase.
S1Host's plans mainly charge customers on a monthly basis with some plans charging yearly. Though discounts are not given for paying in advance, S1Host announces sales on Facebook. Flexible in terms of payment, the company allows customers to pay using a bank draft, PayPal, or Boleto.
S1Host's versatile infrastructure with datacenters located throughout the US powers many of its shared, VPS, dedicated server, and audio streaming plans. The company's dedicated staff strive to provide the best support possible to "take care of" customer websites so customers can spend time on their businesses. Customers looking for low-cost, high-quality hosting may find S1Host to be a great choice.
