VodaHost is a hosting company which provides web hosting and reseller products since its foundation in 2004. All the products are developed based on the Linux operating system and all the servers and the data center of VodaHost are located in Dallas and Texas.

Even if Cisco network technology provides some support for VodaHost, this host still cannot keep pace with leading companies like BlueHost and InMotion Hosting. This web host claims that they can provide unlimited disk space, monthly data transfer, websites per account and domain names allowed, but the real condition remains to be explored.

With regard to the shared hosting prices, VodaHost releases three billings – $9.95/mo, $7.95/mo and $7.45/mo which are a little bit high for some people. Notice that if you buy the hosting service monthly, you need to pay $9.95/mo while you purchase biennially with $7.45/mo. VodaHost announces that its web hosting package is 100% all inclusive. No hidden charges or fees ever. However, only its clients know the truth.

Editorial Review

VodaHost Speed Review 2.50 of 5

Because all VodaHost servers are located in the USA, the speed of the host is relatively slower for visitors in overseas compared with the situation that servers and users are both in the same place. One impressive fact is that all servers of VodaHost have 24x7x365 monitoring and are connected to a 100% Cisco powered network, which perhaps can ensure the speed of the web hosting service.

What's more, VodaHost servers vow to run the Border Gateway Protocol (BGP4) for best case routing and packets may be sent via alternative routes to the same end user, which means that should one of ISPs fail, packets leaving network are automatically redirected through another route via a different provider. However, the result is unsatisfactory, according to our test on both the server response time and page loading speed.

VodaHost Reliability Review 2.00 of 5

Using multiple Tier 1 service providers, VodaHost claims to lead the hosting industry with 99.99% uptime guarantee, ensuring the highest degree of security against network downtime. But as a matter of fact, the result of 99.99% uptime guarantee is unrealistic and can hardly be realized in shared hosting. If you are not careful enough, you might be stuck in this pretended trap.

VodaHost aims to keep all disk usage below 50% to avoid any connectivity problems. To achieve this goal, the company will suspend your account and suggest you to upgrade to a VPS even if you do not have surplus traffic, which is not wise enough actually.

VodaHost Feature Review 2.00 of 5

What feature is to a hosting system is what air to people. For this part, just like other hosting providers, VodaHost did a not bad job. For example, the company's shared hosting plan is included with MySQL databases, Cron Job, and multiple programming languages including PHP, Perl, Curl, GD, CGI, etc.

The features of the web hosting services like customized free domain registration, free Email addresses, unlimited data transfer, unlimited disk space and many such items were verified thoroughly. But the control panel of VodaHost is not so well-arranged which means users need to spend much time on what they want. And some other important features like SSH are not available.

VodaHost Technical Support Review 2.00 of 5

VodaHost boasts that they have knowledgeable and responsive technical staffs who are waiting to help 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. Actually, VodaHost only claims email, fax and phone call ways on its contact page, but lack of live chat which is more time-saving and efficient.

Because the company doesn't specify the work time of the phone call support, if a consumer has some questions on the page issue or server issue, especially when the user is in time differences with America, the advertised "faithful 24x7" can do nothing but create one support ticket.
