Apollo Hosting Review

December 21st, 2007 | by admin | as Host Reviews

Apollo Hosting is a first class host that has been in business since 1999 and provides reliable services for over 30,000 customers worldwide. Located in Austin Texas, Apollo Hosting is a company with a good understanding of the hosting market that prides itself in providing first class solutions to all its customers.

ApolloHosting.com is a leading webhosting provider and a good alternative for individuals looking for affordable solutions without having to abdicate of the much essential stability. When talking about hosting providers one has to understand that competition is extremely fierce so caution has to be taken before making a final choice. Apollo Hosting offers a range of Linux and Windows shared hosting solutions, being the first the most recommended. The Personal plan, which comes in three distinct packages, is available for a reasonable $6.96mo but that is only true if the 24 month payment option is selected. Starting with 50gb storage space, 500 bandwidth, 20 hosted domains and unlimited e-mail accounts, the Personal Value plan is a good alternative for individuals looking for inexpensive hosting. The Personal Business plan offers 300gb storage space, 2000 bandwidth, unlimited hosted domains and unlimited e-mail accounts all for $13.96. As for the third option, the Personal Ecommerce Pro, 400gb storage space, 3000 bandwidth, unlimited hosted domains and unlimited e-mail accounts is offered at $20.96mo. A rather negative aspect we have to point out is the fact that there is a $9.95 setup fee which is only waived if a customer opts for the annual payment option.

The Business hosting solution provides a mix of reasonable solutions being the virtual private server (VPS) the only worth mentioning. Starting at $31.96mo it isn’t the most affordable alternative available on the market but it does offer the basic tools commonly found in such packages. With a very stingy 15gb storage, 500gb transfer and 256mb ram this might be a inadequate solution for most webmaster interested in a VPS. For a more serious alternative the Advanced VPS is an option given the 50gb storage, 1200gb transfer and 1024mb ram but for such a package the price tag of $71.96 could be considered extreme.

Apollo Hosting has an interesting lineup of dedicated hosting plans. The first aspect that really made the dedicated hosting option unattractive was the $99.94 setup fee. With the only reasonable offer being provided by the Control Delux plan for a whopping $244.94mo, we are sure most webmasters will think twice before purchasing it.

Apollo Hosting is a reasonable hosting provider that is dedicated to its customers and their satisfaction. We thought that the prices were rather high especially when analyzing the VPS and Dedicated hosting plans. The $99.94 setup fee required when purchasing the Dedicated hosting is in our opinion expensive and an enormous drawback especially seeing as most host do not charge for similar services. In the end ApolloHosting.com can be a good hosting solution but we recommend caution since there are plenty of alternatives that might offer similar services for a fraction of the price.
