Rose Hosting Review

Rose Hosting Review Summary

Rose Hosting holds the reputation as first to offer commercial Linux virtual servers back in 2001 and today has even more products under its belt. It has everything from shared web hosting plans to dedicated server hosting but unfortunately, their eggs are all in one basket with a single US-based data center.

Editor's Review & Recommendation

Rose Hosting is a pioneer in enterprise-level hardware hosting and today remains on the cutting edge of technology in their product offerings. Unfortunately, this has resulted in steep prices and the offer of very limited resources on many of their plans. As an example of this, their shared hosting accounts start from 4GB of storage space which is tiny in this day and age.

Apart from that, aside from a free SSL certificate there are very little in the way of the freebies on offer here. Even as you feel the pinch of paying their high hosting fees you may realize greater pain once you realize you'll have to fork out extra for a domain name as well. Even backups are limited to the cycle of a single week - that's just seven days worth of backups.

If that hasn't scared you off this host yet then you will be happy to learn that paying these prices will also buy you better reliability. In fact, so secure is Rose Hosting in its technical edge that they offer a usually unheard of 99.99% uptime guarantee even for their shared web hosting plans.

Although they promise 24/7 technical support, the capacity for self-help here is extremely limited thanks to a tiny knowledge base that offers hardly anything in the form of user guidance. Despite this, I feel that they have planned their product progression extremely well and scaling up plans here is likely to be seamless even from shared hosting to VPS.

At the end of the day, Rose Hosting is likely to appeal to a limited set of customers who are seeking satisfaction in technical points and happy to avoid the lack of data center options to do so and pay steep prices to do so.
