Is Servage the host for you?
$ 6.45 / Month
Servage One got its name by combining the words “serve” and “age.” This represents serving their customers and using the most up-to-date technology. The company launched in 1998, and now serves nearly 200,000 websites. They use a clustered platform to maximize uptime and redundancy. They have only two pricing packages, one for each type of hosting they offer. The features and pricing couldn’t be any more straightforward.
A help desk is available to users round the clock. Support staff is available 365 days per year. The average response time for support requests is 20 minutes.
Servage One offers two very simple hosting choices: Web hosting or virtual private server (VPS) hosting. You will not find lists of dozens of plans here, just one simple plan per hosting type.
This generous plan is perfect for individuals to businesses and includes a powerful set of features.
This option is better if you need more configuration control than what you get with the web hosting plan.
*When hosts describe anything as “unlimited,” it is typically boundless except in cases of abuse. A user may be charged a penalty or be required to subscribe to a more robust package if they are overburdening the servers.
Servage One is very specialized hosting with just a single package per hosting type. You will not find yourself bogged down with pages full of optional add ons. You also won’t find any fully managed options, premium support levels, or dedicated servers. While the pricing at Servage One may be enticing, you should be sure they offer all the features your business needs before signing up.
If you were to have a website hosted by Servage it would not be located on a single physical server. Instead, it would be simultaneously hosted on several servers within a cluster of servers. When someone visits your website they are served the website from the server with the lightest load, and when one server fails, another picks up the slack.
Yes. The secured data center includes clustered servers in a redundant setup, four independent gigabit fiber optic links, and backup emergency power. No word on where that datacenter is located.
Uptime with Servage over the last couple of years has been excellent. 99.98% uptime is guaranteed.
Servage claims to be the first web hosting provider to offer a clustered server setup for shared web hosting accounts, and they may still be the only one to offer clustered server hosting for basic affordable web hosting accounts.
Support is available 24/7 primarily through a support ticket system. The location of the service group is not advertised, but we suspect it’s in Germany.
Yes. All account come with a 5-day money back guarantee. That doesn’t give you a lot of time to change your mind, so make sure you have this deadline in mind when you decide which billing cycle to sign up for.
Five forms of payment are accepted: credit card, PayPal, Skrill, bank transfer, and cash. You can pay on a quarterly, semi-annual, annual, or bi-annual basis. The longer the billing cycle you select, the lower your monthly hosting rate will be.
The only limitation on the type of site you can host on Servage is that no illegal content is allowed. So as long as your content is legal, you’re in the clear. Since Servage is a German country you’ll need to be certain your content is legal both in Germany and in the country where you are physically located.
Yes and no. As long as you’re using your account for normal personal or small-business website hosting purposes you’ll be fine. However, if you’re using your hosting account for things other than what the account was intended for (file sharing, podcasting to millions of listeners, etc) then you may find your site pulled offline due to excess bandwidth use.
Due to the clustered server environment, traditional control panels aren’t suitable for Servage accounts. Instead, you’ll get access to a proprietary control panel that is very straightforward and comes with some pretty cool features.
WebDrive is an application you can download that provides a direct link between your computer and your hosting account. When you install WebDrive a new drive will be created on your computer (S:). With WebDrive, you can save files to a directory on your computer and have those changes automatically updated to your website.
Yes! Unlike many hosting providers that discourage the use of their disk space to store personal files that are unrelated to your website, Servage actually advertises on their website that it is acceptable to use WebDrive to store documents, photos, and more. However, you will want to think about how to properly protect these files prior to uploading them.
Yes. You will be able to easily install around 30 popular scripts directly from the control panel. The list includes all of the most common content management systems as well as a reasonable selection of forums, poll applications, wiki’s, e-commerce platforms, and more.
Yes, however, it is a free desktop application rather than a web-based application. This means that you’ll still have to use FTP or WebDrive to upload your website files to the server once you’ve built your site. Quite a few templates are available, however, we weren’t blown away by the look and feel of the templates and color schemes, or by the ease-of-use of the application.
Servage GmbH is a German hosting provider doing business as Servage Hosting. It is a subsidiary of Servage AB, a Swedish company that also operates Levonline, and Servage Communications.
In 2010, a large number of sites hosted by Servage were affected by hacking resulting in their sites redirecting to malware sites. Servage claims the vulnerabilities that allowed the breach to occur have been remedied in more recent versions of their proprietary Linux server operating system, Servage OS.
