Is USHost247 the host for you?
Last reviewed Apr 11, 2016
There were some problems with payments via PayPal but the admins always return my service online and very good support, the servers are the best I have never seen (I use shared hosting), no downtime and very cheap price, the bert hosting provider I've ever seen.
Very happy with service!
USHost247 was founded by Chris Grigg, an IT professional who also takes care of the servers and customer service. It started trading in December 2010. The company focuses on making hosting "easy and affordable," and emphasizes its money-back guarantee and customer satisfaction promise. It says it provides all of its hosting from a datacenter in Canada, although we found conflicting information on its website.
USHost247 offers shared, reseller, and VPS hosting, as well as domain registrations for its clients.
Its shared hosting offers customers fixed resources on two plans, with only the most expensive plan providing unlimited capacity. Technical specifications are limited, but these appear to be Linux hosting plans that come with cPanel as standard.
Reseller hosting is structured to provide unlimited resources on all plans, except for disk space which is limited on the lower cost tiers. Resellers can host an unlimited number of clients on their site, providing they don't exceed their storage quota.
All VPS hosting plans come with SSD storage for speedy performance, and are provisioned on the KVM platform. Additionally, all plans include IPv6 support to future-proof your website. Plans aren't customizable, but there are a large number of variants, and USHost247 aims to set up all VPS packages almost instantly.
USHost247 utilizes a datacenter in Beauharnois, Canada. The facility is owned and operated by OVH, a global datacenter provider which also has locations across Europe. The Beauharnois facility houses 360,000 servers, and has security personnel on-site around the clock. All data halls have smoke detectors and CCTV fitted, and access to generators with 48 hours of backup power. Due to the favorable location of OVH facilities, 98% do not need air conditioning; the rooms are cooled using natural water and air instead.
On its order page, customers can choose from a range of other datacenter locations: New York, Amsterdam, San Francisco, Singapore, London, or Frankfurt. It doesn't provide any information about these datacenters.
USHost247 provides support through a ticket system on its website. Live chat is offered for pre-sale inquiries, although the facility was not active when we visited. There is no telephone support.
USHost247 guarantees its customers a 99.90% uptime on all of its hosting packages.
You can pay for your hosting plan via Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover, or PayPal.
USHost247 is a small hosting provider aimed at other small businesses. Its reseller hosting will appeal to very small companies, micro-businesses or freelancers who need to create lots of small hosting accounts for their clients. It also offers a wide enough choice of VPS hosting packages to give users plenty of room to grow, even without a dedicated server option. We'd like to see USHost247 volunteer more information on its shared hosting packages, and explain its datacenters in more detail. This would likely expand its catchment area beyond North America.
