InterServer is intentionally going for a competitive low price. As such, it’s perfect for newbies, but less suitable for professional web developers with specific needs. It’s perfect for hosts with limited budgets, whose hosting plans are loaded with impressive features (starting from unlimited storage, unlimited data transfer, and an unlimited number of websites that can be hosted.) InterServer also comes with a unique price-locking guarantee, which means that when it comes to renewing your subscription, you’ll only have to pay the same price. Unlike most web hosting plans, which you can get into very cheaply initially, with InterServer you don’t have to worry about prices going up dramatically.
Everything a Newbie Needs
InterServer is clearly designed for novice website owners. Even if you have very little technical experience, its offerings can help you get started easily. As your online business grows, you’ll need more features, and InterServer can provide you with a host of other offerings.
Some of the most noteworthy features for novice administrators include a free migration service and a free website builder, cheap domain name registration, a simple control panel, and a selection of more than 450 cloud apps via a one-click installer, including WordPress, Joomla!
Guaranteed Email Delivery
InterServer has its drawbacks, but if you’re looking for a web host that can provide support for your emails, look no further. Not only does the company offer unlimited email accounts, but it also offers an email delivery guarantee: InterServer claims to solve email deliverability issues. As long as you don’t send spam, your emails won’t end up in the recipient’s spam folder.
InterServer promises its customers 99.9% uptime, in part due to its partnership with Cloudflare and its cached data centre. Of course, many web hosts make similar promises, but its Service Level Agreement (SLA) guarantees that if your site’s downtime is excessive, then “each customer will receive a credit not to exceed 50% of their base monthly fee.”
Public Organisations and Student Concessions
If you are a non-profit organisation or a student, InterServer offers you discounts on email accounts, space and bandwidth. Features like these are not available to most companies. It’s always nice to work with a company that is committed to making the world a better place.
It’s Easy to Get Started
It’s no surprise that InterServer makes it easy for users to get started. After all, its business plan is primarily geared towards catering to novices. The account creation and website setup process is kept as streamlined as possible in case users move on to other, easier-to-use products. As a result, the company goes to great lengths to ensure that its services are as user-friendly as possible. Let’s take a closer look at what it’s like to use InterServer.
A Panel for Simple Controls
InterServer uses cPanel, and this is a tool that most professional web developers have used. In addition, this makes it easy for you to execute administrative tools on Linux servers that comply with Linux hosting industry standards.
InterServer has partnered with Acronis to provide a comprehensive backup solution for your valuable files and databases. It claims to be one of the fastest and most powerful backup solutions on the market. While it may be powerful, it’s not the most user-friendly solution, and if you’re a beginner or novice website owner, it may be too complicated for you.
Creating an Account
InterServer’s signup process is quick and easy. Also, I like that they accept PayPal as a payment method as well. Another nice feature is that you can choose from a variety of payment terms (monthly, yearly, 2 years, etc.). Also, I really like the fact that immediately after signing up with InterServer, you are presented with a screen that contains all the relevant account information such as hostname, hosting servers, cPanel and Webmail links, and the default name servers. No need to wait for the welcome email to get this information.
Speed and Performance
InterServer has two data centres, both located in New Jersey. In our tests, site speeds close to that area were particularly good. Elsewhere, speeds and page loads were also quite good.
Somewhat poor support
In some cases, live chat support wait times were a bit long, which was the only negative I encountered with InterServer customer support.
InterServer Packages are Affordable and Comprehensive for Users’ Needs
InterServer is one of the most reasonably priced companies I’ve had the pleasure of testing. Web hosting services can force you to pay a few extra dollars (or more) in countless ways. Happily, InterServer has a very conscientious sales approach, and it doesn’t have any upsells or hidden setup fees.
In addition, InterServer has only one shared hosting package that includes all the most important features. No longer will you have to go through the hassle of comparing multiple complex packages to find the most cost-effective option, InterServer’s package has everything you need.
InterServer supports payment by Mastercard, Visa, American Express, Discover and PayPal. All packages come with a 30-day money back guarantee.
