I have been using Vidahost for part of my hosting requirements for over 3 years. Based on the excellent service I have received during this time, I have decided to write a Vidahost review and help promote their services.
Vidahost Web Hosting are a small outfit based in the UK and offer a wide array of excellent hosting services, domain registration and cloud solutions.
Update: Vidahost have switch all their products to Cloud Hosting and have removed their entry level £17 a year service.
Their new entry level offering starts at £29 a year including a free domain and hosting for up to 6 add on domains. The price then moves to £59 a year for 16 add-on domains and increased storage and bandwidth, right up to £499 for a fully equipped managed server.
All the packages are perfect for using WordPress and offer clean and easy installs using cPanel and Softaculous. Sub-domain creation, domain parking and multi-site hosting (not entry package) are all standard and easy to use.
Watch my review below:
This week I had a lot of interaction with Vidahost with respect to fairly complex account upgrades and bandwidth balancing across hosting accounts. I was extremely impressed with the level of service I received. The requests were all resolved within 2 hours, and their “can do” attitude built a bespoke hosting package for me.
Here are the some of the benefits I have personally experienced from Vidahost Hosting:
- Ultra Snappy WordPress hosting and performance – almost doubles GoDaddy in page load time – see pingtest results below
- Initial response to technical and customer service tickets have all been within around 10 minutes and is 24/7
- My Vidahost sites always out perform sites hosted on other servers such as GoDaddy, Hostgator and 123 Reg for both speed and SERPS. I have now begun moving all my sites over as contracts expire
- Their ability to create tailor made solutions to hosting problems regarding sharing bandwidth across packages
- They value your business and allow easy cost effective upgrades and expansions – they are not just about taking as much money as they can from you like some companies I could mention.
- My sites all rank well in the US where over 40% of my traffic comes from – the page load speed times are the same in both countries
- I now have 5 different Vidahost hosting packages sitting on 5 different servers each with different IP address. Useful for SEO purposes. You can request special things like this when you create an account.
Here are the results for this site’s homepage using Pingtest. It’s 95% faster than all tested websites. Impressive.
It could be even faster if I optimised the website itself as it only scores 82/100 in the site test I used.
Disadvantages I have experienced with Vidahost:
- Some of the technical support guys are sometimes too smart for their own good and presume you know as much as them when trying to resolve technical issues
- Purchasing additional domain names through them can be more expensive than other domain registrars like GoDaddy
This is all pretty minor stuff and domain names can easily be pointed from other registrars.
Basically, if you care about your website and are looking for a fast, decent web hosting provider then you can’t go wrong using Vidahost. They are definitely best in class as far as I am concerned, and I am pretty fussy about these things.
Vidahost Promo Codes for 2014
Here are some Vidahost promo codes for 2013/2014. You can use as many as you like on one go as long as you are buying those products. Don’t bother trying to use them if you are just buying a domain name though, they don’t work!
WEBHOT10 – 10% Discount for Web Hosting
WEBHOT20 – 20% discount on SSL Security Certificates
WEBHOT15 – 15% discount on VDS
If you use these links and codes I do get a small kickback. Only a small fraction compared to what the larger hosting companies like Hostgator. If you are a regular here you know I only ever recommend products that I personally use and hold in high regard on this site.
