Same price whether you pay monthly or yearly. Price is currently on sale by 25% to 33% which means you get a decent discount for your first order. You can lock in a long length billing cycle for maximum discount!

All Hostwinds plans with cPanel have auto SSL which give all your websites https for free and automatically. The cost of upgrading to SSD drives depends on which VPS plan you choose. SSD is optional, but we included the cost for that feature in our price. cPanel VPS licence costs $13/mo and that is also included in our listed price to make it easier to compare with the other plans. cPanel is an optional extra. Softaculous is another $2/mo. $2/mo per extra standard IP address. Hostwinds also offer DDos protected IP addresses, as well as C-Class IP addresses. Basic server monitoring is another $5/mo. Cloud backups makes sure your data is safe and accessible and costs only $1/mo and is performed daily. WindSpeed is a one time service offered by Hostwinds which claims to be able to provide information which can be used to significantly speed up a website. Windshield is a security extra which adds a shield to your site.

24/7 USA based support team

I have mostly had great interactions with the Hostwinds technical support team. For technical support requests you need to submit a ticket. They have been amazing to me and always helped out fixing anything I've asked them. Sometimes they have been slow to answer me though and I've had to ask them twice on one occasion where the low tier support simply did not know the answer but luckily a higher tier specialist got my server issue fixed. They do have 24/7 live chat sales support on their website (popup in the bottom right when visiting their website from a desktop computer).


If you need web hosting on a server in the USA then I would strongly suggest to consider a Hostwinds plan. They get good scores from me for having lots of payment options, USA based support team, long money back guarantees and the best uptime guarantees. They also allow adult content to be hosted with them on all of their plans.

I would have liked to see SSD storage as in included feature at no extra cost. The possibility to scale up or down your plan (except disk space, that can't be scaled down) like in the cloud is neat. With a huge selection of 10 different VPS plans you are sure to find a plan that suits your needs.
