Is ServerLanka the host for you?
By Brian Wu
Server Lanka is a web site hosting company based in Sri Lanka. It targets individuals and small businesses for hosting needs. The company offers standard services such as shared hosting, VPS, and dedicated hosting. Different plans are available within each and appear to target individuals on a budget.
Server Lanka offers a wide range of plans covering shared hosting, virtual servers, and dedicated hosting. All its shared hosting plans feature unlimited sub-domains, databases, e-mail and ftp accounts. Plan bandwidth and hard disk space is limited though both increase with costlier plans.
The shared hosting plans are linux-based and feature software such as Apache, PHP, and cPanel. Server Lanka also has Softaculous allowing for easy updates and installs for popular applications such as Wordpress and Joomla. CloudFare technology and disk space on pure SSD technology results in faster response times. Bandwidth monitoring is also available.
Besides shared hosting plans, Server Lanka also has VPS and dedicated server plans. The dedicated server plans vary on the number of cores, CPU speed, and disk space. Overall, plans from Server Lanka are pretty standard and are targeted to individuals and small businesses in Sri Lanka who need low-cost hosting.
Server Lanka features hardware using Intel processors. Its data centers are based in New York, USA. The company allows customers to further customize its dedicated servers to include items such as additional memory, port speeds, and bandwidth. In addition, Server Lanka also has KVM over IP switches that allow customers remote server access.
Server Lanka mentions 24x7 customer support on its website, however only a contact submission form is available. Besides a contact form, articles are posted in its "knowledge base" for self-support. The only other support is free setup for shared and dedicated hosting after plan purchase.
To secure its hosted websites, the company offers a wide variety of security features including anti-virus protection, hacker protection, and password protect directories. In addition, DDOS protection is offered for all its plans.
Dedicated server plans include DDOS protection but an extra fee is charged for shared plans. Server Lanka also makes daily and weekly offsite backups in North America.
Server Lanka guarantees 99.9% uptime through its data centers in New York, USA. It is unclear how this is enforced or what is offered if the site availability is less than guaranteed. For dedicated servers, Server Lanka offers 100% network uptime, power availability, and cooling availability.
Billing is on a monthly basis but Server Lanka gives discounts up to 20% for its shared hosting plans if the customer pays for the whole year up front. However, dedicated server plans do not have discounts. Multiple options for payment are accepted including credit cards and PayPal through 2CheckOut as well as PayZa. Bank drafts are accepted but only in Sri Lanka.
