Before starting out to write this review for you, let me put it simply for you.
Interserver is an excellent server. Period. You’d say, why should we take your word for it? My answer is, you don’t have to. But take the words of all those millions of existing customers whose all server needs this company has catered to.
Interserver isn’t the new player in town, instead, it’s been with us for around 17 big years now! Now just ask yourself, “How can a Shitty company survive 17 long years in one of the competitive markets in the world”? And the answer is : – By not being shitty, which interserver clearly isn’t. And it’s survival in itself is a proof of that.
Nope, I’m not saying go out and buy it right now. You may, or many not need it, so here’s a review for you I’m taking to write after a long and definitely good experience with them.
Before detailing out each and every aspect of InterServer, I’d just give you a sneak peek into what it has on an overall Basis:-
- Unlimited Addon Domains: – Meaning, you can add unlimited domains to your account.
- Data Transfer > Unlimited – Meaning, no matter how much traffic you get, you don’t have to worry about running out of bandwidth.
- Storage Capacity: – Oh, of course you get Unlimited space to host your files.
- Control Panel
I highlighted some words, right? They explain a lot of things, the main point they’re explaining to me is, well you get almost everything UNLIMITED with Interserver. And these are the specifications of the shared hosting plan which cost as low as $3.85/month! (Try and show me a cheaper plan at that price, I dare you! ).
It hosts a variety of plans, let’s start with the… If you already are in love with it, Checkout the features right now, or, let’s explore a bit more..
The Shared plan typically costs $4.95/mo with all of the features listed above. ( Oh wait, I just said they were for #3.85/month, right? ) Yup, they are. You get a discount if you go for a 2-year contract.
Well my point is, if you’re going to host your website, you aren’t just going to do it for one single year, right? Of course you’ve plans to get it for 5-10-15 years minimum, so why not buy in bulk and save?
In fact, registering your domain in advance for coming years is also a direct ranking factor! So that will get you a rankings boost in Google SERP! So if you’re extending your domain for the next 10 years, why not extend the servers too? Trust me you’re gonna save a “lot”, and I repeat, a “lot”.
Nope, “Once upon a time there was an Interserver server hosting company” story doesn’t end there!
Interserver not only gets you quality shared server, but it has a very scalable VPS too. The VPS starts at $6/month while if you want to go to a more cloud-based Windows VPS starts at $10/month.
If you’re into VPS stuff, you’d understand that they can achieve super fast speed because they are routing their data through BGPv4 protocols, so it’s routed to the closest backbone, and thus you get lightening fast speed.
Not just that, they also have N+1 safety protocols, to ensure your server remains intact, up and safe at all times. All of that at no additional cost.
They have datacenters at more than one location, so there’s no “traffic jam” over the servers that’s for sure. They’ve got 2 DataCenters in the USA itself, and 4 others in continents including Europe and Asia.
As I listed above, InterServer is getting you Unlimited Space, And Bandwidth.
Meaning, you can host as many files as you want to, there’s no limit on that. And, they won’t ever ban your account out.
Additionally, you get unlimited of bandwidth thing too, meaning no matter how much traffic you get and how much of it is used, it won’t ever, like ever run out!
The one other thing you don’t need to stress about with InterServer is the site load speed.
Well. Even speed is a direct ranking metric, and I understand that much, that’s the reason I include this in this piece. Interserver uses SSD Disks for its servers, so definitely if you know what SSD disks are, you’d know that it’s natural for them to have lightening fast speed.
In fact, WHSR tested the speed of the servers from 8 different locations, and here’s the speed score it calculated.
Let me tell you; it’s an alphabetic Scoring Metric, A = Best. D-E=Worst . Considering that, B+ is a very, very impressive metric, because there’s a big difference between B, and B+ itself!
So yes, you don’t have to worry about speed with your InterServer.
Well, since 1999, Interserver is reputed to get you 99.95 server uptime. That’s pretty great compared to other servers as they can promise a max of 99% uptime only.
Let’s say you buy a super featured server, with awesome speed and other metrics. It is the best server in the world for you, and then suddenly you come to know that their uptime sucks. What will you do with the other features if the site can’t even be online? It’s like being the best dancer in town, with the best costume and styles, except that you don’t have legs and can’t dance!
The servers have never gone below 99.95% and most of the time it’s miraculously 100%. The below screenshot is the analytical report of InterServer uptime recorded by SiteGeek for a several month.
Well, Interserver along with providing you 99.95% uptime, also gives you its guarantee by including this statement in their T&C agreement. Meaning, if they fail to get you the promised uptime, they credit your account from their side, so it’s clear you only pay what you get for.
No Price Hikes!
This is one of the best things any agency, company or firm can do to a client.
Most companies, give you a “sign up bonus”, of say 99% discount, you sign up for almost nothing, you put in your hard work, efforts, and sleepless nights into getting your website done.
And after the year, or the month when you actually to see some results, you get to know that the price you paid was only the “One-time signup discount”, and after that you might have to pay 50-60X more than what you paid every month!
That’s a big duh! Because, by now you already have worked hard on your thing, and now can’t just change the servers overnight, right? So you have to pay whatever the company asks for, and finally a hole grows in your pocket.
Well, with InterServer there’s no such thing. They assure you that you’ll be paying whatever you agreed for, for the whole of your lifetime, without any hike, ever! Of course if you upgrade your plan, that’s a different case, but for the same plan, for an account, the plan price never goes up, and I mean, never.
I’m not saying Interserver is the “best” server in the world, nope.
But, It’s close enough. And at “this” price, it IS indeed the best you can get. The Uptime, Unlimited Space & Bandwidth, the No Price Hike Thing, and the Speed are just worth the money.
In fact, I’d happily pay couple more dollars every month to the company, because I know it’s worth it. I mean, which other company in the world guarantees you that the price won’t go up the next year? The next year it might go up 10x, and you’re done, you will have no other choice then to pay them, because migrating a server isn’t the easiest task in the world, take my word for it, and then you’d have lost a lot of money.
With InterServer I’m relaxed, satisfied, and happy, what else does a client want? Go along and grab it right now!
