SoftSys Hosting Expert Review- From the Editors

Softsys Hosting was founded in 2006 (under the domain softsys.org) and has been catering to MS Windows shared and reseller hosting clients ever since.  Softsys is also recommended by Microsoft as a reliable VPS provider. Softsys Hosting operates more than 4,500 of websites out of the Handy Networks data center in Denver, CO.

Review

Pricing

Softsys Hosting offers a remarkable value for Windows customers. A starter plan (1gb space/10gb bandwidth) runs just $3.50 per month, making Softsys one of the lowest Windows web hosting companies in the industry.

Uptime

I employ a premium uptime monitor to keep track of my websites and have not experienced any downtime, with the exception of the hardware failure mentioned above. The Softsys network has been reliable and speedy during my stay.

Sales

I contacted SoftSys by email to inquire about the purchase of a shared web hosting plan and received detailed answers to my inquiry within approximately twenty minutes. I found the SoftSys Hosting sales representative to be considerate and very helpful.

Help & Support

Softsys Hosting offers customer support by email, ticket system, Twitter, MSN Chat, and an online forum. General emergencies can also be addressed by telephone. Softsys excels at customer service and I found them to offer topnotch, personalized help at each and every turn. Softsys was able to address my hosting questions as well as assist me with general website issues. It takes 10 minutes on average for Softsys to respond to an email or Trouble Ticket question. Can’t say enough about the excellent support!

Setup

The signup process with Softsys Hosting takes no more than a few moments. After paying for my account by credit card, I received a warm welcome email detailing my account information. Account setup is instantaneous and I was able to access my web hosting account almost immediately after payment.

Reliability

I had only one instance of downtime related to hardware failure with SoftSys. During that one hour period, Softsys sent timely emails letting me know the status of the issue at hand and when I could expect my websites back online. The situation was resolved within one hour and I’ve not experienced any further trouble.

Billing

Customers are able to pay for hosting accounts at Softsys on a quarterly, 6 month or yearly basis. I paid for my account quarterly and was never charged for extraneous features or services I had not ordered. Softsys also offers the ability to upgrade or downgrade accounts at any time and that billing process also works smoothly.
