BeyondHosting Review: Does Their Hosting Go Above And Beyond or Fall Flat?

Beyond Hosting

Beyond Hosting specializes in managed Linux or Windows VPS and dedicated cloud hosting for businesses. They also provide domain registrations and SSL certificates. Founded in 2007, they’re a small company based in Cincinnati, Ohio who provide 24/7 customer support based in the United States.

Managed VPS Hosting

Beyond Hosting offers both Linux and Windows VPS hosting that includes full root access to the server, using cPanel and WHM. There are three different levels of Linux hosting and four levels of Windows hosting to choose from, and you can instantly upgrade if you need more resources, or downgrade for less.

All of Beyond Hosting’s VPS plans include solid state drive (SSD) storage, dedicated and burstable RAM, unlimited domain support, and daily automatic backups. Softaculous is included to enable one-click installations of over 300 of the most common software applications.

For some plans, Beyond Hosting offers LiteSpeed Web Server instead of Apache. LiteSpeed Web Server is faster than Apache, with improved PHP performance.

Beyond Hosting’s Windows VPS plans are used via remote desktop, so they’re easy to use if you’re familiar with Windows. All the Windows plans include Windows Web Server 2008, and you can purchase SQL Server for an additional fee.

Managed Dedicated Cloud Hosting

Beyond Hosting offers five different levels of managed dedicated cloud hosting depending on your website’s needs. All of them include SSD storage, and cPanel.

All their dedicated cloud servers are monitored 24/7, and include daily snapshot backups.

Optional premium features include LiteSpeed Web Server (instead of Apache web server) and automated off-site FTP backups.

Looks like we don’t have any reviews for Beyond Hosting yet.

Infrastructure & Network

Beyond Hosting’s data centers use Dell’s Poweredge rack servers. Their transit network is fully redundant and connected to multiple Tier 1 carriers. Beyond Hosting’s VPS host nodes have redundant 10gbps uplinks, and their servers are equipped with 5 industrial generators in case of power failure.

CloudFlare CDN (content delivery network) is also included with all of Beyond Hosting’s plans to protect your website from downtime. A content delivery network distributes static content among multiple servers around the world to speed up your website loading times. On average, websites with CloudFlare load twice as fast.

Support and Customer Service

Beyond Hosting has a knowledgebase on their website that will help you get started with your web hosting account and resolve most basic issues.

They provide customer support via a ticket system or live chat, and their United States-based team is available 24/7.

Backups & Security

Beyond Hosting offers offsite FTP backup services for an additional monthly fee, which they recommend all VPS and dedicated customers sign up for. The service includes hourly, daily, weekly, and monthly backups which are stored off-site, so they aren’t compromised if anything should happen to your server or the data center it’s in.

Beyond Hosting’s Beacon Monitoring Service is included free with all of their hosting plans, and are automatically configured when your new account is set up. The service monitors your server 24/7 for uptime, and can send you instant email or SMS alerts if your server is down.

Uptime Guarantee

Beyond Hosting doesn’t have a specific uptime guarantee; however, in their terms of service they offer to credit their customers 4 cents per hour for any time their servers aren’t functional. In their company blog, they specify an over 99.5% uptime record.

Billing & Payment Policies

Beyond Hosting charges monthly for all its plans and services. For payment methods, they accept credit cards or Paypal. Discounts are available for selected plans for the first 6 months of service.

All of Beyond Hosting’s services are non-refundable. Your account will be automatically renewed unless you cancel via support ticket at least five days before your current term is ending.

Beyond Hosting charges overage fees for use of services outside your allocated limits, though they don’t state what the overage rates are on their website.

Affiliate Program

Beyond Hosting has an affiliate program which is offered in partnership with CJ Affiliate. Affiliates receive 100% commission on virtual private servers, as well as performance bonuses for top affiliates. All affiliate accounts are assigned a dedicated Affiliate Manager for support.

Summary / Conclusion

Beyond Hosting seems a good choice for reliable, no-frills business hosting for larger websites with high traffic, lots of dynamic content, or large disk space requirements. While their services are targeted towards more technically experienced users, the US-based customer support team is available 24/7 if you need help. If you need a reliable Linux or Windows VPS host, or your own dedicated cloud hosting, be sure to contact Beyond Hosting with any questions or for more information on their services.
