*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.

Server Colocation

Spiral Hosting doesn’t provide colocation packages, instead you may contact them for a tailored solution.

  • Single unit to full data center cabinets and suites
  • Shelf space for tower servers
  • Includes all features of VPS accounts

Pros

  • Free domain registration for life of account
  • Money-back guarantee
  • Included cPanel

Cons

  • Real-time, live support is limited
  • No packaged dedicated server plans

The Verdict

The wide variety of plans may prove especially valuable for those with growing websites. The most popular options in Linux hosting are included, at no extra cost. You’ll find plans that are generous for the price. If you need regular access to live tech support, though, Spiral Hosting may leave you wanting. If you’re fine with email support, the available feature set makes Spiral Hosting a solid contender.
