When you host with Interserver.net, you will have a choice of cPanel or Direct Admin control panels depending on your needs. You will also have a choice of Cent OS, Ubuntu, Debian or Windows with VPS, as well as a choice of the amount of disk space, bandwidth, IP Addresses and RAM with every VPS plan you opt for, which are priced differently.
All the VPS plans have RAID-1 servers and backups. They have daily, weekly and monthly backups to ensure no loss of data.
The price of shared hosting plans may appear to be high but loading of files is faster and there are many unlimited features that you get in addition to security services.
Interserver.net supports many scripting features. These include Fantastico, WordPress, Mambo/Joomla, Drupal, Moodle, PHP, Wiki and b2Evolution among others.
They provide the typical user-friendly cPanel control panel to their clients.
The shopping carts include osCommerce, Cube Cart and Zen Cart. They also provide SSL Secure Servers, Password protection and Shared SSL certificates.
The support team offers 3 types of tickets, standard, emergency and critical.
Interserver.net does not offer a free domain name.
It does not support some languages like Python, Ruby on Rails and ASP which you can find with other hosting companies. It also doesn’t support shopping carts such as Agora shopping cart if you are launching an e-commerce site.
Multimedia features are limited. They do not have streaming video/audio, shockwave support and MIDI support.
I use Interserver .net dedicated server and it has been reliable except for a few downtimes. Unfortunately there are some months when uptime is down. I like the way customer service reps are polite when you call them. But, the technical support team is slow. There was a time my e-commerce site was down which meant loss of income for me but when I submitted a critical ticket nothing was done for some time despite the fact that I had paid an extra fee. They kept saying the problem was fixed while it wasn’t. It took them a couple of days to resolve the problem.
Another thing is that, many hosting companies offer a free domain name but Intrserver .net does not.posted by Ashton Tuesday, 11 September 2012 03:44 Comment Link
