Editor's Review & Recommendation

Although being based in Florida, GlowHost has managed to scale its business worldwide despite its claims to remain a boutique hosting company. Their data centers span the globe from the United States to Europe and Asia, but not all locations are always available. Most of the time you'll only be allowed to choose from either their US or Canada locations.

They also have a very wide variety of plans and ancillary services, offering almost all kinds of hosting up to and including managed dedicated servers. Value add services include the provision of company toll free numbers, sale of domain names, and more. All of this under one convenient, consolidated roof.

Solutions available here are obvious customized to what they feel their target market needs and GlowHost is confident in their 24/7 support provided by teams in the US and Europe. Basic hosting starts shared plans that aren't the cheapest around, but do not hike up too significantly after your first term is up. Best of all, prices are backed by a very long 91-day money back guarantee.

Newbies and freelancers will be glad to hear that they include the use of not just a website builder for their hosting plans but also a massive number of free templates that can be chosen from. Users who already have existing sites can benefit from their free white glove site migration services.

GlowHost take security seriously and relies on highly encrypted SSL for data transfer. Emails are also secured with PGP, plus they scramble all customer information in their databases.
