What’s Great About APC Hosting?

    • Caters to both Windows and Linux users

APC hosting caters to both Windows and Linux users. Their Linux package is actually a reseller package but since it is quite affordable for the inclusions mentioned, it can also be used for personal sites. This way, you will not be forced to move to a different operating system just to avail of APC hosting’s packages.

    • Simple and easy to use website

APC Hosting’s site is very useful, with an always-available live chat option for pre-sales inquiry and post-sale issues. Having a stable, easy to use and attractive web site is a good sign that the company takes their customers very seriously.

    • Affordable packages

APC Hosting offers one of the most affordable hosting packages out there. Even if their packages are not that many, you can further customize them with add-ons to better suit your needs.

    • VPS offerings

Not everyone offers VPS hosting side by side with web sharing hosting. This is a good move from APC hosting since some customers may want to eventually branch out to VPS and they need not go to a different service provider to do so. VPS or virtual private servers offer greater speed and lesser risks since you are not sharing the machine with another client.

What’s Disappointing About APC Hosting?

&#10006 Needs more packages to entice customers

To get future customers, APC Hosting should have more pre-made packages to better suit other people’s needs. This way, they can better identify with the sort of needs they have and match it to APC Hosting’s resources.

&#10006 Not much user reviews outside Singaporean users

Apart from reviews from Singapore, there are not much reviews about APC hosting’s performance. If you will be accessing them outside of Singapore, you might want to ask for a free trial period just to be sure if the performance is acceptable for you. You can probably negotiate this with their customer support team since there really isn’t much feedback from actual users outside of Singapore.

The Bottom line

There is nothing holding you back from using APC hosting, especially if you are within the area of Singapore. But if not, better check first if their network speed and uptime can be guaranteed from other places.
