Surpass Hosting Review 2017

Is Surpass The Right Host For You?

inmotion hosting reviewed

99.9% of hosts try to offer everything, but the reality is, they tend to really specialize in one form of hosting and generally use smoke and mirrors to make it look like they are able to able to deliver on all fronts. But a very few put their hands up and admit that they are excellent at just one thing.


For example, WPEngine agrees quite literally the best hosting provider for WordPress hosting online today, bar none. We adore WP Engine. Another hosting provider that falls in the category is Surpass Hosting.


They only offer shared hosting (And a Reseller option) but boy do they do it well. In a very competitive marketplace, they are very quickly becoming one of our favorites. I think after reading this review, you might start to feel warm and fuzzy about them too.

Detailed review of Surpass Hosting

Way back in 2002, Surpass Hosting was launched with one goal. To provide good quality affordable hosting with first class support. In this review, we’re going to take a look at whether, 15 years down the line, they’ve managed to achieve that goal.


Based out of Orlando Florida, the well respected Surpass Hosting is able to boast being the host of over 500,000 websites, which is no small number. They are a member of the HostDime network of hosting companies and has 2 of their own data centers in the center of Florida.


Surpass pride themselves on taking their own path and a good example of that philosophy being put into practice is the fact that they only focus on one specific form of hosting. That’s Shared Hosting. Most other hosting companies offer either dedicated servers together with their hosting packages, or possible VPS hosting. These days, it’s pretty common to get all 3. But not with Surpass, they’ve decided to stick to one thing and try to be the best at it. That’s Shared Hosting with a well-promoted reseller service to compliment it.


As we mentioned above, it’s this specialization that we like most. We are very much a believer in “Jack of all trades, master of none”. We prefer to work with masters. They have really focused on being good at delivering one form of hosting and it’s enabled them to stand out from the very noisy crowd of hosts all trying to get your attention.

Pros

Various length money back guarantees

Amazing uptime performance.

Good tech for a host that offers so many services.

Great datacenter coverage of the U.S.

Cons

Some of their packages can't boast higher than average speeds.

Security features are somewhat basic.

Not great if your audience is outside the U.S.

Customer support gives more precadence to higher plans.

If you're looking for a solid host that offers different packages for businesses and entrepreneurs of all sizes then you'll definitely find something that works for you, whereas with some of the high-performance oriented hosts you'll likely not if you're a smaller business that's still scaling.
