SuperX Introduction

Webmasters who need hosting for adult websites require a service that offers maximum uptime, speed, security, migration without disruption, and the right tools for websites with lots of media. SuperX launched in 1996 with the goal of addressing the void in adult industry-specific hosting services. They offer plans that anyone hosting lots of media will be pleased with.

Support

SuperX has award-winning support and a knowledge base, accessible any time. The MyCP control panel allows you to submit a support ticket for help. Live chat and live phone support are available continuously as well.

Features

      *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.

      VPS

      Dedicated, virtual servers offer an affordable hosting option that is still optimized for adult hosting with features like burstable RAM. This allows more processor and RAM capacity than shared hosting without the high prices of dedicated servers.

      • Dual Xeon 5650 Hexa-core 2.55Ghz
      • Root access

      • Up to 24 GB burstable RAM, 12 GB guaranteed RAM, depending on tier purchased
      • Up to 720 GB disk space, depending on tier purchased
      • Up to 10 TB bandwidth, depending on tier purchased

      Pros

      • Continuously available support for all users
      • Many choices in plans
      • Scalability in some plans
      • Industry-specific features included

      Cons

      • Bandwidth limits with most plans
      • No site builders
      • Control panels carry monthly fee
      • You need to checkout to see the usual hosting feature options, like MySQL and control panel options

      The Verdict

      All the hosting offerings from SuperX are tailored to the needs of adult website hosting. Those features—like bandwidth, media players, and memory—are the features they’ve built their packages around. Some typical hosting features are buried in the checkout process. This may be a good option if you have a media-rich website, but not if you’re looking for typical hosting plans.
