Power Monitoring
All our servers, routers, switches and services are monitored, so that we know at any moment what is going on at any level of our infrastructure and take action whenever necessary. More details here.
Hardware
Our infrastructure is built with last generation equipment, high performance CPUs and memory, fast SSDs, RAID 10 data redundancy and low latency networks. Our data centers are located on two continents, Europe and North America, so that we can ensure optimum connectivity for our customers.
Software
We use the latest versions of the most secure operating systems and core software for our servers, such as CloudLinux, WHM/cPanel, Litespeed, Apache, MySQL, MariaDB and many others. We also provide a number of easy to use software and tools for our customers, with intuitive designs, making them accessible to everyone: Softaculous, Attracta, CloudFlare/Railgun, etc.
Backup
Backups of all data are saved periodically, so we can recover everything in case of disasters that are not in our power to prevent. The data of our customers is saved automatically on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis on at least two remote locations.
Instant Activation
A new hosting account is activated immediately, if the payment is made online, with a credit card or through PayPal. If the payment is made through bank transfer, the new accounts are activated as soon as the payment is confirmed.
Free Migration
We offer free data migration for anyone that is moving from other hosting locations to Power Hosting, with the condition that the former hosting account is also using cPanel. If another control panel was used, we will do our best to re-create the previous functionality by using cPanel, but from time to time some incompatibilities may occur and we will inform the client about that. Even though we have all the good will and a strong sense of involvement in helping each client during the migration process, in rare situations when we don't have enough access or the hosting software differences are too big and the migration process would take too long, we reserve the right to ask the client to pay a fee, hourly or for the entire process, or even to refuse to proceed. If you need other types of data migration, please contact us to discuss the available options.
Guaranties
Here you can benefit of a 30 Days Money Back guarantee, so you can make sure that our services are what you need. The customers who want a full refund of the amount paid for hosting, have to send a clear statement by email to Sales Department, or by the integrated support system, in up to 30 days since the payment for the hosting service was processed. The request have to contain the customer identification information, the confirmation that all data in his/her hosting account was saved, optionally the reason for the request and the needed information for the refund operation. In other words, you have the possibility to test our services for a month and if, for some reason, you consider that you are not completely satisfied with these hosting services, then you can terminate your account and ask for a refund. In up to 30 days from your refund request, we will send back to you the amount paid for the hosting service minus any associated transaction fees or card processing fees.
We also guarantee 99.9% uptime. If your shared or reseller hosting service had a physical downtime that falls short of the 99.9% uptime guarantee, you may receive one month of credit on your account. This uptime guarantee does not apply to planned maintenance. To request a credit, please visit Client Area to create a support ticket to our Billing Department with justification, within 30 days of the end of the month for which you are requesting a credit. Approval of any credit is at the sole discretion of Power Hosting and may be dependent upon the justification provided. Third party monitoring service reports may not be used for justification due to a variety of factors including the monitor's network capacity/transit availability. The uptime of the server is defined as the reported uptime from the operating system and the Apache Web Server which may differ from the uptime reported by other individual services.
Flexibility
We understand that some our customers may need various types of help and support, that are not included in our generic packages or predefined support plans. That is why we offer a wide range of paid services, such as consulting and interventions, related to uncommon data migrations, additional services, software and hardware design, OS level security audits, performance testing and tuning, learning and training, etc. Please contact us with your enquiry and our team will be happy to assist you.
Optimization
Even though we use powerful and fast software, the best performance is achieved by properly configuring and optimizing software (Apache, MySQL, PHP, etc), according to the hardware they run on and also according to the various situations that occur in day to day usage. We also use dedicated caching software like special PHP modules or even dedicated software like Varnish.
Control
One of the most important aspects of web hosting is the ability that each client have, to control and manage most of the virtual resources that they have access to. Thus, you can easily add, delete or modify all kind of resources, such as domains, subdomains, email accounts, databases, DNS records, Reverse DNS records, etc.
Perks
You can benefit of various offers that companies specialized in online marketing or search engine optimization (SEO) have prepared for clients that are starting a new website with us, such as Google, Bing, Yahoo, etc. Usually these offers are for new clients, but not always.
E-Commerce
Many of our clients are using the services that we offer, for hosting online shops. These have to comply with various rules and regulations and ensure that they offer secure conditions for online transactions. We support our clients by offering free SSL certificates and ensuring high security standards and PCI compliance.
SEO
These days, search engine optimization (SEO) is an essential online marketing technique. We help our clients to comply with the search engines requirements, by offering free SSL certificates, dedicated IPs and SEO tools such as Attracta.
Inovetions
We live in a period when more and more cutting edge discoveries and innovations are made everyday and we are doing our best to keep up with the most important ones, so you can benefit of such innovations as soon as possible. We are mostly interested to make available the old and new features simultaneously, so no separate locations are required, just as we do with PHP versions and HTTP protocols (we offer multiple PHP versions to chose from: 5.4 to 7.1 and also two HTTP protocols: HTTP/1 and HTTP/2).

Core Features

Unlimited
We offer the possibility to create unlimited virtual resources for you, your team or collaborators. With all our hosting packages, you have unlimited Bandwidth, FTP Accounts, Email Accounts, Email Lists, Databases, Sub Domains and Parked Domains.
Account Isolation
Because each of our client's hosting experience is important for us, we keep our clients accounts isolated, for security and resource usage reasons, so that in situations where a particular account is compromised or some broken scripts are using many resources, that will not affect the other accounts. For that, we use the latest security oriented server operating systems such as CloudLinux with improvements and tools like LVE (Lightweight Virtual Environment) and CageFS.
1-Click Apps Installer
These days there are a lot of web software to choose from and some may be more appropriate for your page than others, but these are not usually easy to install, configure and maintain for anyone. That's why we offer a well known web software manager, called Softaculous, that you can use to install any of your favorite web software. If you need to build a portal, create a forum, sell your products, start an educational website, bring online your real estate business, offer online support to your customers, create your website or just your own blog, you can choose from the following categories: Blogs, Portals/CMS, Forums, E-Commerce, Image Galleries, Wikis, Social Networking, Ad Management, Calendars, Gaming, Email, Customer Support, Frameworks, Educational, Polls and Analytics, Project Management, Guest Books, File Management, DB Tools, Music, Video and many others. From the listed categories, the top rated software are: WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, WHMCS, Prestashop, AbanteCart, Opencart, phpBB, SMF, myBB, Open Real Estate, Dolphin, B2evolution, BoldGrid, Moodle and others. The top software usually have more features, but less known ones may offer you a more friendly interface for exactly what you need. You only have to pick one, customize it a bit and make it available online under your domain name, in order to start receiving visits. Now you are 1-click away from deploying your website in seconds and you can also update and backup periodically your chosen software (highly recommended for keeping it secure).
Free SSL
Having secure, encrypted web access became a common sense feature these days for most websites and is a basic requirement for E-commerce websites, in order to be allowed to sell online. By using dedicated SSL services, we are now able to offer free SSL certification to our clients for any website. We actually encourage everyone to use it, for various reasons, such as SEO.
Internet Protocols
We offer addresses in both currently used Internet Protocol (IP) spaces: IPv4 and IPv6. As you may know, the regular IPv4 addresses space, that most of us are used to (Ex:1.2.3.4), is quite limited and is depleting day by day, so dedicated IP addresses are not anymore a resource that can be offered for free, as happened some time ago. That's why the new protocol called IPv6, with its very large address space (Ex: 111a:222b:333c:444d:555e:666f:7777:8888), is becoming more and more used. While the IPv4 addresses are becoming less and less available and their costs increase, the IPv6 address space is so large that we are able to offer free addresses for everyone.
DNS Management
Having domain name is only the first step in the process of creating you own website and you also need a way to associate your domain to an IP address, create subdomains, define your mail exchanger or add any other records that may be required these days. Such feature is called DNS (Domain Name Service) management. We offer this management service, with an easy and intuitive interface, where you can add DNS records with minimum knowledge of the DNS protocol.
Backup Wizard
In order to avoid losing your data in case of disasters or any other extraordinary and unpredictable events, you have to periodically create backups of all your data. We come to help you in this effort, by providing various tools that make this process easy. One such tool is the Backup Wizard, that is available in your control panel account, which reduces the manual backup work to few clicks.
