What’s Great About Server Admins?

    • Very beginner-friendly experience

Server Admins is really newbie-friendly. The list of tools available for the new web developer, as well as the friendly customer support staff, are all nice tools to have if you are just trying to get your service off the ground.

    • 1-click installation software

Server Admins also makes use of the 1-click installation scripts that are available in majority of the bigger hosting providers. This makes installation as easy as 1, 2, 3 without needing to cry a river for the scripts that you need to manually write.

    • Uncensored content

Unlike other hosting providers that censor the content that they host, Server Admins does not do content monitoring. For as long as the company availing of the services is a legally acknowledged company, they are ok with hosting them. This is all good for those who do not want to explain the contents of their websites to any hosting provider.

    • Informative website

This portion of the web service is often taken for granted but without a useful website jam packed with relevant information, then a hosting service will not fly. In their website you can easily spot the promos that they have and the types of packages that you can avail of. The perks are also listed on the home page as well as some snippets of testimonials.

    • Fast set up time

Server Admins boasts of really fast set up time, even if they provide set up for free. This is an excellent thing to know for those who are in a hurry to launch a service and really needs to get things up and running.

What’s Disappointing About Server Admins?

&#10006 Frequent downtimes

The frequent downtimes can be a tad too irritating, especially if this is your first time hosting your web service. There are too many service interruptions to count. This is a very bad thing to have unless you are in it for personal reasons. But for budding e-commerce sites, this is a nightmare to have.

&#10006 Too many unresolved tickets

A friendly customer support staff is not all that they need to have. There are too many unresolved tickets. Although the staff is nice and helpful to a certain extent, they need to be trained more in addressing more complex issues experienced by the more commercial users.

The Bottom Line

Their price is not extremely encouraging and their reputation is not that strong, either. Consider going to other web solutions provider unless you are just really curious to try them out.
