What Does the Expert say?
In order to ensure reliable hosting and guarantee 99.9% uptime, HostNine has partnered with reputable networks Softlayer, Sparkstation, and UK Dedicated. Each of HostNine’s data centers is equipped with 24/7 on-site security for all hardware, a diesel powered backup generator, a fire suppression system, HVAC, and more. Descriptions of individual data centers are available on HostNine’s website.
Their selection of Virtual Private Servers consists of five levels with level 3 featured as their best value at $89.95/month. The prices start as low as 19.95/month for a level 1 plan and rise as high as $129.95/month for a level 5 plan. The cheapest package includes 600 MHz CPU, 376 MB RAM, 10 GB disk space, 250 GB bandwidth, and 1 IP address. Note that the level 2 plan offers exactly twice as many resources as a level 1 plan but for more than double the price. They slightly make up for this by throwing in cPanel for free. If you require a dedicated server, prices range from $169-$329/month. Dedicated customers have a choice of U.S. or UK based servers.
As with most hosting providers, HostNine offers 24/7/365 customer support. Users can access their 24/7 live chat by typing in their name and email address. They also have the option of submitting a support ticket and addressing a specific concern to the appropriate department, either technical support, abuse, billing, or affiliates. For quick answers to frequently asked questions, it’s a good idea to first look at the company’s knowledgebase which has articles organized by user-friendly categories like pre-sales, cPanel, Reseller, Apache/PHP Issues, email, FTP, site builder, and billing support. HostNine also provides additional flash tutorials and a community forum for user-to-user based support.
Their VPS hosting plans are built on cloud technology. Customers can choose the location of their equipment, the operating system (Linux or Windows), the CPU, amount of RAM, disk space, and bandwidth. HostNine VPS are completely redundant with RAID 10 SAN from Cisco, so that customers never experience interruptions or delay in their service.
