247-host VPS Reviews

Read our expert opinion of 247-host, along with unbiased reviews from 2 real users

Launched in 2004, 247-host is based in Montreal, Canada and has data centers in USA, Canada and Europe. 

While they are relatively small, they are active in the web hosting community on various forums, and based on limited research we have not found any complaints about them. In fact, the one or two mentions we found are relatively positive.

Their VPS offerings are quite interesting. They offer three different types of Linux plans (managed, unmanaged, managed SSD), and one type of Windows VPS plan. Their more expensive plans even come with a free WHMCS or Clientexec licence; great if you want to resell web hosting from a VPS.

Editor's note: We have not personally tested 247-host VPS plans, but based on our initial research we think you might find better value elsewhere, as their non-ssd plans are a little expensive, especially where more resources are required. Their SSD VPS hosting plans are not too badly priced, but at that budget you do have a good number of choices available.

247-host Expert Review 2017

a2 hosting expert opinionOverall, we get the impression that their VPS hosting is a little overpriced, especially for the unmanaged \ non-ssd variants. 

247-host appear to cover ALL the basis here. Whether you want unmanaged, managed, premium SSD or Windows, they have you covered. Servers are offered in the US, Canada (except Windows) and Europe, and the technology used is very solid. They even will help you install NGINX \ memcache which is good.

The only issue is that 247-host are a relatively unknown entity. The number of reviews left around the web appear to be relatively positive, and they appear to be active on forums such as Webhostingtalk responding to any issues. That being said, we can't help being "turned off" by their antiquated website design.

The jury is out, and we welcome your feedback if you have or intend to be a customer.
