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, so choose long length billing cycles to increase your 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. cPanel VPS licence costs $13/mo and that is included in our listed price to make it easier to compare with the other plans, but cPanel is actually an optional extra. Softaculous is another $2/mo. $2 per extra standard IP address. 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.

Data center location

Choose between Seattle and Dallas in the USA to be your server's location.

24/7 live support

The Hostwinds support is great and sales support is really quick to respond with the chat box on the homepage of Hostwinds. For technical support requests you need to post a ticket. The support is based in the USA and is fluent in the language as well as very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable.

Conclusion

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 on all 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.

The VPS web hosting plans is on sale and you will get a discount for your first period. Choose as long billing cycle as possible to maximize your savings and discount. Currently, this plan will renew at $89.95/mo after your initial period is over. You can pre pay for longer periods of 2 years and 3 years for substantially lower monthly costs on your initial period, it will still renew at $89.95/mo though.

Extra features

cPanel is another $10/mo. Domain Whois Protection is another $1.25/mo and a .com will cost you $15/year. I would suggest to get the domain and Whois Protection from a cheaper registrar, read more about domain registration here.

Data center & support

The HostGator servers are located in Houston, Texas, USA. Live tech support available 24/7!

Conclusion

Due to really high prices after your inital billing cycle is over this plan get substantially lower score then what it would get otherwise. Also the high prices for domains and whois privacy, and the lack of SSD storage, are other reasons this plan gets a pretty low score.

Every VPS plan comes with a free .com domain name and is currently on sale for 50% off first month. You need to pay in advance for 1 year of hosting to get the listed price. Slightly more expensive with monthly billing.

Whois privacy is $9.99/year. SiteLock Basic is $19.95/year and can help you stay clear of malicious files and malware. SpamExperts Inbound/Outbound Email Filter is $9.95 /mo, BitNinja Server Security is $19.95/mo, and CloudLinux OS is $14.95/mo.

Conclusion

The TMDHosting VPS plans have lots of benefits. They have servers in most price ranges which is nice. Other pros like: global data centers, live support based in the USA, fast SSD disks and decent prices are reasons that the rating on the TMDHosting VPS plans are really high.

You need to select and pre pay for 1 year of hosting to get the price of $55.00/mo. If you choose monthly billing this plan will cost $60/mo.

DreamHost allow easy scaling of resources with their VPS to upgrade your amount of server resources. That could make starting out with a cheap plan the best option for site without lots of traffic alread. All VPS plans have 100% SSD storage. One of the reasons why they can offer these plans at so low prices is the fact that they do not offer cPanel, instead they have created their own webpanel. cPanel do cost $13 per month so it is a great way to save money for the cheapest plans.

Conclusion

A great choice for low cost VPS hosting. However the lack of cPanel, and no money back gurantee lowers the score for these plans a little. You might also want to compare the DreamHost VPS plans with the slightly more scalable and better value plans from Digital Ocean here.

Premium web hosting

Liquid Web is a premium web host which offers lots and lots of hosting add-ons for security, software and performance. They have a wide selection of powerful web hosting plans available at their 3 data centers located in USA Central, USA West, and EU West. All of Liquid Web's hosting plans allow adult content, but there is one exception and that is when using the Akamai CDN - so don't use that if your sites contain adult content!

Fast cloud hosting

The Cloud VPS plans from Liquid Web claims to be the fastest managed VPS servers on the planet. And speed is important, as you know - both for your user's experience as well as for SEO. The CPU cores which are included here are vCPU (virtual CPU cores) and their performance would minimum be that of a regular 2.4 GHz physical core. All of their cloud VPS plans include 100% SSD storage. The benefit of hosting in the cloud is the easy scalability at once when you need it. If your website is growing fast or might have huge traffic spikes you would be prepared with a cloud VPS plan or a cloud dedicated plan from Liquid Web. You can also scale down the amount of resources you rent if you need to. Cloudflare CDN for one domain is included (usually $20/mo).

cPanel or Plesk is $10/mo and is included in our listed price, you can choose neither to get cheaper hosting . Daily Backups costs $0.12/mo per GB and is kept for up to 90 days if you specify to keep it for that long that on the billing page. You can upgrade the monthly bandwidth limit to 10 TB for an extra $50/mo or all the way up to 20 TB for an extra $100/mo.

Data center location

Choose between hosting in USA Central, USA West or EU West. USA Central is the default and also the cheapest option. USA West and EU West will increase the monthly bill substantially. I am glad they have multiple options though!

USA based suppport

24/7 live chat support, phone support and ticket support both sales and technical. All of their support is based in the USA providing the highest quality of english speaking support!

Conclusion

This is great host with a large USA based support team and fast servers. It does not come cheap though which is a drawback. So is the fact that there is no money back guarantee.

To get this price of $68.75/mo you need to select annual billing cycles and pre pay for a year of hosting. Any shorter billing cycles and the price will be $75/mo.

The VPS plans from HostDime are rather pricey. They do come with pure SSD storage and cPanel included, as well as very high bandwidth. Each plan also comes with 2 dedicated IP addresses. Select managed or unmanaged and Linux or Windows. Note that if you choose to register a domain name though this host you will have to pay a high premium. Right now they charge $27.99/year for a .com. Remote backup storage is $10/mo for 25 GB, but you can get up to 300 GB for $100/mo. Enterprise DDos Protection starts at $75/mo.

HostDime is a web hosting company that specializes in VPS and dedicated server hosting, with data centers located in Florida, USA. It is super secure data center with a building inside a building that is manned at all times, even under the last hurricane. They also have interesting global locations available for their VPS plans. They allow adult content on their servers.

Conclusion

The VPS plans by HostDime are really expensive compared with the amount of resources that they offer in compariosn with other hosts. However they do have one positive and that is a huge bandwidth limit of close to 15 TB monthly.
