Today I’m going to Review a less known (rather less marketed) Hosting provider, VapourHost.
I’ve been using VapourHost for exactly over 3 years now; rather I would say I was probably one of their first customers. Being one of the first customers was tough. I was skeptical about their services.
The risk turned out to be worth a shot and I totally love it!
One of the reasons why I switched over to VapourHost was their affordable plans. Finding a good webhost that provides affordable plans is one of the toughest tasks.
Here’s a pricing table of their currently available plans
5GB SSD Space
20GB SSD Space
Same Renewal Price
Unlike many other Web Hosts, You can renew your current services at the same price you bought it for! There’s no Hidden prices or anything!
Doesn’t it make VapourHost more affordable?
Plus you get a 30 Day Money back guarantee!
So if in 30 days you feel VapourHost isn’t worth it, you can back out and get a refund!
Speed is one of the most important factors in SEO. If you’re an SEO Maniac like me, you would certainly have mares with a slow loading website!
You need some kickass hosting to achieve an excellent speed.
Here’s a screenshot of one of my latest articles (speed test done on Pingdom Tools)
VapourHost has SSD Powered storage for you!
SSD is new and faster technology that can help you achieve fast loading speed! It provides 3x faster access to files and database than normal drives do.My Website Host is faster than yours! 😛 Click To Tweet
What I feel is, one of the reasons why an individual hosting provider edges out other is Technical Support.
I rarely had any issues with any of my websites. I can count to upto 2-3 times where I somehow broke down my site (I was being a silly person)
I immediately opened a support ticket on My Services panel in VapourHost and my website was back from the grave in a matter of few minutes! Feels good when you mess up and someone else cleans it up and helps you out 😛
Free Backups (Weekly)
Yes! VapourHost provides weekly backups for free. Here’s a screenshot of my recent backups!
You can take different types of backups. Some of them being
- Full Account
- Email Accounts
- Cron Jobs
- SSL Certificate
Most of the Webmasters are concerned about their site’s Uptime.
It’s understandable as well! I’ve been monitoring VapourHost’s Uptime for quite a long while now.
Here’s a recent screenshot of Uptime Stats of the VapourHost servers from a Tracking software embedded by VapourHost!
Just a quick fact, none of the hosting company can promise you 100% Uptime, not even providers like AWS! The downtime is inevitable by companies, all they can promise is a really good uptime (in the case of VapourHost, it is 99% and above, which is quite good!)
If you’re someone who considers SEO as something vital in your business, you would surely know the pros of having HTTPS on your website. Generally, providers like GoDaddy (and many others) charge loads of money in the name of SSL for your website.
Why not get it for free? I’m using Free SSL issued by VapourHost on all of my websites! It’s quick and easy to install!
- Domain Registrar
Most of the big hosting companies give you an option to buy a domain from them.With VapourHost you’ll lack such experience as it’s not a Domain Registrar.
You’ll have to buy your domain from a third party and host it on VapourHost.
VapourHost is a new player in the market.
A new player has to prove to be a good player whereas old players can continue with bad track record and move on with good customer strength and marketing.
