Vodien Hosting is a local company that specialise in providing domain names and web hosting services. I was recommended by quite a few of my Business Associates to use them for my websites because of their security and support. Recently I have some very bad experiences with another hosting company in U.S. and I learn a lesson that it is always good to have your host in Singapore so that you can contact them direct when you need help.
Pricing That I Have Never Expected
To my surprise, actually Vodien has a very competitive pricing as compared to even hosting companies in U.S! For example, you only need to invest S$10 per month for web hosting if you pay two years in advance (WebValue plan, 15GB Disk space and unmetered Bandwidth). And it gives you 5 addon domain names (this means you can host 5 different websites under a single hosting account).
Free .com.sg and .sg Domain Names
Vodien also able to offer you first year .com.sg or .sg domain names for free (if you have registered a business with ACRA). This saves me another $60 if I were to get one. If you are registering a .com/.net/.org name, it will cost you $20 per year.
How Is Their Support?
I value support more than anything else. I would pay more if I can get a support that is both professional and responsive. Vodien support team is very responsive, for every email requests I send to them, they reply within two hours! I never thought this is possible with such pricing. You can also call their hotline listed on their website.
Another thing I like about the support is that they are also professional in what they do. There is no need to correspond a few times before the issue is resolved. They put themselves in their customers’ shoes to handle every requests.
Transferring Your Existing Website to Vodien?
If you are looking for a new web host to transfer your existing website from your current hosting company, I would recommend you try out Vodien Hosting. Most of my students are using Vodien now and the transfer is seamless. All you need to do is to signup a hosting plan with Vodien (select you will change your nameserver option) then send them an email giving them your cpanel username and password and they will do the migration for you. It is that simple! My students just enjoy the migration process when they transfer to Vodien.
Another thing I like about Vodien is they will reimburse you the prepaid amount (not exceeding $40) of your previous hosting contract by offsetting our hosting fees by that amount. This is something I never seen in other companies. I like their confidence in the service quality, this shows a lot to the new customers.
Just to let you know, I’m not an employee of Vodien Hosting. I’m a online Internet Business Instructor. It is just that I have seen too many people choosing a cheap hosting provider then later find themselves firefighting with issues like server lag, hacking and server instability.
I just like to share quality service providers to my readers and students so that you can free up more time and focus on your business.
Do give Vodien a try and I’m sure you will be as delighted as me!
P.S. If you want to try out a slightly cheaper hosting, you can check out A2 Hosting here. They also have Singapore based servers and I have some websites hosted with them without any issues also. Vodien and A2 Hosting are the best I have tried so far.
