Editor's Review & Recommendation

Interserver can be a great choice for a wide range of users. Their fixed pricing scheme that offers discounted rates for users that pay annually is refreshing, given that so many hosts mark up their prices highly upon renewal.

The plans are suitable for almost everyone from novices to seasoned users, but there are some caveats to this. For example, if you’re an experienced user that needs some development tools on their shared plans, those aren’t readily available.

Likewise, users who are looking for very specific things such as a good choice of hosting server locations will be a little disappointed. Nevertheless, overall they have a good range of products and combine that with decent performance.

For Newbies and Individual Bloggers

With a track record of over two decades in the web hosting business, Interserver topped our list as the best web hosting for bloggers. Their fixed pricing scheme makes this an economy solution for both newbies and bloggers.

This is especially true if you also take advantage of their $1.99 domain name offer – something that’s hard to find at any other place.

Interserver User Satisfaction

    "Their support team slid down hill recently and I need a new hosting platform now. "

    When I went with them, they were awesome, quick response times, knew their stuff, on top of things, incredibly helpful. After being with them for a few years, things were great until one day they weren’t. All of a sudden anything that goes wrong is now my fault, even when they have to make modifications. They refuse to actually look at the problems you tell them you are having. I have multiple support tickets open at one time that aren’t being resolved. When I try alternate methods, live chat, phone calls, whatever, its the same treatment. If I wanted to have to do their job for them, I would host a server in house… I’m leaving interserver. I wish they would get rid of their crappy support team and get people who know what they are doing.

    No, don't recommend

    "I strongly recommend this host"

    There customer’s service is the best. They will help you fix any issue you have. I remember when I just moved to intersever, it was free, they helped fixed all issues, they help fixed my slow site and other SEO issue, they even helped me get to the first page of google ranking for my niche. My Adsense moved from 0.2 – 1 dollar range per day to 50 dollar.

    There price is fair, they even worked out a customized hosting plan for me based on my need. Everything is unlimited. Trust me when I tell you that I used 50gig space on shared hosting and no complains, though when I go better at Optimizing, I was able to reduce it myself to 10gig. they allow monthy payment and two weeks grace to pay after payment day has passed, note that your website will still be online for that two days, they do refund easily.. Even when I had a recurring charge that as meant for something else. They still did the refund.

    There dashboard is light and awesome, it had everything I needed, tons of great features. I give them a 9.9 score out of 10.

    The only con is just to increase the seed so that slightly heavy site can still perform well.

    Yes, recommend

    "No complaints"

    I really only have good things to say about Interserver. For the price, service, speed, and in-house control panel it cannot be beat. I use thier webhosting and VPS services and very pleased with both.
