They provide a variety of hosting services: web, VPS, cloud, dedicated or reseller hosting. It’s important to note that they have a 24 / 7 customer support which is available in English, Portuguese, Spanish and Lithuanian languages.

However, their VPS hosting service is the most popular and this time, so we will look at it in more detail. If you would decide to sign up with their VPS hosting, you will be able to choose from 5 different locations – USA (Los Angeles, Chicago), Brazil (Sao Paulo), Germany (Frankfurt) and South Africa (Johannesburg). Remember, that the closer the server location is to you, the faster the connection speed you will have.

Host1Plus provides four VPS hosting plans – Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum. Each of them can be customized during the checkout process, so you can add only those server resources which you require the most.

For starters, let’s look at the Bronze plan. In US and Germany it costs $2.5 USD per month, in South Africa – $3/mo and in Brazil – $5/mo. The price seems to be really affordable and reasonable when most of the other companies usually require a sum of $10 or higher for their starter VPS hosting plans. With the Bronze plan you get 0.5 CPU core, 256 MB RAM, 20 GB disk space and 500 GB bandwidth. These resources will be enough for host a small website such as a blog, portfolio website.

Silver plan is a more expensive option, but you will get more resources. In US and Germany it costs $5/mo, in South Africa – $6.50/mo and in Brazil – $8/mo. For this price, you get 1 CPU core, 768 MB RAM, 30 GB disk space and 1000 GB bandwidth. With these resources you can use the server for more a bit more resource intensive projects, or higher traffic websites.

Their third Gold plan in US and Germany costs $15, in South Africa – $19 and in Brazil – $21 per month. It will supply you with 2 CPU cores, 2048 MB RAM, 40 GB disk space and 2000 GB bandwidth. This will cover the needs of a bigger website or a medium size online project.

Also, you can sign up for a VPS that is suitable for power hungry projects or websites. Platinum plan is the most expensive but at the same time the most powerful VPS hosting plan that Host1Plus has to offer. It costs $40 in US and Germany, $45 in South Africa and $50 in Brazil per month. With this powerful server, you get 4 CPU cores, 4096 MB RAM, 70 GB disk space and 3000 GB bandwidth.

At the end, what also matters is the general performance of the company. You can find the reviews about the company at the very end of their main page. People seem to be really satisfied with their price and performance which adds a higher level of trust.
