First things first. I'm admittedly a difficult customer, at least in the sense that I have high expectations for my hosting company. If you consider the relationship you're entering into with a host, it's a bit of a marriage. You are transferring over all your data and clients to them, putting it all in their hands, and asking them to take care of it for you. And if you’ve been in this game a while, you’ve been burned enough to be careful before you choose a new one.
You're trusting them with security, speed, support, etc. And the profit margins in hosting are not usually such that companies can afford to care too much about individual accounts. How could they? They'd go bankrupt.
And so it goes. They promise you the world for a low ball price and you bite.
Things are ok for the first year. But then year 2 rolls around and your renewal fees are a shocker, but switching hosts is a daunting task, so you pay the renewal fees anyways, and lock yourself into a 3 year deal with them to get a better price per year.
All the sudden, you start getting IP blacklisted, the quality of support drops and your sites slow down because they cram tons of other users on your shared server. You are dissatisfied and your clients are complaining. The solution? Oh, no worries, just upgrade to a better plan… for double the price… or get your own Virtual Private Server or a Dedicated Server with SSD and the all new “Hyper-Warp-Mega-RailGun-Grand-Chinese-Buffet-Under-New-Management” feature they are offering for “free”… for triple the price.
So, you bite the bullet and upgrade. Then all hell breaks loose and they:
⁃ Throttle down your account (My experience with GoDaddy),
⁃ Cap your bandwidth (Everyone's experience with VPS),
⁃ Offer you a huge server size but then screw you on the inode count so you can't actual use it (my experience with NameCheap),
⁃ Promise you 24/7 "live" support from "a small and passionate USA based tech team" (No more chatting with Sandeep) but it's actually a snail-mail ticketing system they answer at their own pace (My experience with WebHostPython),
⁃ Sell out to EIG (My experience with Bluehost),
⁃ Create their own crappy panel (since cPanel raised its prices) and force you to switch over to from your beloved cPanel (My experience with SiteGround),
⁃ Or your client list grows and you hear about “reseller” accounts, where you can become your own host and registrar by renting out your server metal to clients and charging them monthly fees, but the “we will migrate all of your old sites over for free!” guarantee turns out to be more complicated then you thought, especially if you want to smash your old hosting file hierarchy into multiple new panel instances and combine old single WordPress installations into WPMU multi-site accounts (My current situation with ScalaHosting).
I’ve seen it all and been threw it all. It’s a complicated and frustrating world out there. I can say though, that throughout this journey to find the best host out there, Scala has not only met the mark, they have bent over backwards and upside-down to stand alone in the industry. These people have thrown logic and caution to the wind when it comes to customer satisfaction. They do not run a cost evaluation on “how much are we paying employee X to talk to customer Y -VS- how much the customer Y is paying each month”. They just deal with it, no matter who you are.
I was also concerned about the structural differences between cPanel and sPanel. And the error prone nature of manual migration vs an automatic cPanel import. I can say that all of my concerns have been addressed at Scala, and then some. And not in a small way. They have blown me away with the amount of concern they have for their customers. My monthly bill is only $12 a month for a VPS and yet they escalated my case to the director level to make sure it was handled properly. They get the big picture and they are in it for the long haul, for sure.
Scala will do right by you.
---UPDATE - First Month---
Had some issues with sPanel, as it's new. But as a company Scala has been available to fix anything, it seems to get better daily and even the top brass are available to jump in and make any issue right. So far it's been a great experience.
ScalaHosting: A Leader in Web Hosting Technology
When we started in 2007, our mission was to make VPS hosting a resource that anyone - students,
developers, business and large-scale teams - can use to build amazing things on the web. That's
why we've worked hard to make the cloud secure, scalable and easy to manage.
We believe VPS should be high-
performance, ultra-secure, and low-cost.
Every website owner in the world can finally have their own cloud VPS
with a control panel, daily backups & snapshots, fully managed by

Creating a Safer, Faster Web For All
Even Google confirms that security is the biggest issue today. And with open-source platforms and
shared hosting, it's even easier for hackers to compromise sites.
We believe the shared hosting model is broken - it loads slower, ranks slower, it's much less secure.
And until Scalahosting, VPS providers were just not there yet on value...
Our proprietary solutions allow for lighting-fast load, security and easy server management now help
thousands of business worldwide to fully harness the web.
You're being overcharged for
hosting. So we fixed it.
The last 4 years, our CloudLab developed the following innovative
solutions which allowed every website owner to have a fully managed
SSD cloud VPS with a control panel compatible with cPanel, SShield
real-time security system and daily backups with 2 snapshots - all for a price that is
lower than the price for the cPanel license only.
We take care of speed and reliability
so you can focus on building
amazing experiences on the cloud.
The cloud clusters of ScalaHosting are high availability and reliability,
without a single point of failure, and our IaaS solution is all automated
to achieve the highest possible uptime.
Combined with enterprise-grade SSD drives, your websites will
load almost instantly.
We never overload our servers.
Most web hosting providers are adding more and more accounts to
their servers to increase their profits and that way their servers become
overloaded, resulting in slow site loading, downtime and bad service.
We set strict limits and you get dedicated guaranteed resources. This
means more uptime, even faster load speeds, and more happy clients.
We provide award-winning 24/7/365
Your satisfaction is of the utmost importance to us. Our team is
there for you to resolve any issues you may have, any time.

“I have always been passionate about servers and building tools to make server management easy and efficient. After 20 years of experience I want to bring the hosting industry to the next level and make the Internet a safer place for everyone. That’s why I started building the SPanel all-in-one cloud management platform and the SShield cyber-security protection system. They allow every website owner to have their own fully managed VPS at the same price as shared hosting increasing security, scalability and speed. I love spending time with my family, riding my Repsol Honda at the track, going to the gym or coding a new great feature in SPanel that someone asked for an hour ago.”

We do things differently. We want you to stick because you love our hosting,
not because you're locked in.
99% of our customers are happy. Here's what we guarantee...
30-DAY MONEY-BACK GUARANTEE
Many other hosts refuse to offer refunds and or simply close the window after 24 hours. We do things differently. You'll love our hosting - And if for some reason your're not 100% satisfied, we'll issue you a full refund. No questions asked.
99.99% UPTIME GUARANTEE
Thanks to our self-healing cloud infrastructure, our servers are capable of performing complex repairing and maintenance tasks automatically. Maximum uptime is guaranteed.
When a compromised account on a shared server sends SPAM your IP gets blacklisted and your emails stop being delivered (or delivered to the spam/junk folder). Your server will come with a dedicated IP address which will never get blacklisted, and your emails will always reach your recipients.
Hosting providers cannot guarantee your website will always get the resources it needs to run smoothly. Any website may degrade the performance of the server at any time. Isolating your website from the crowd to its own server fixes that.
100% CUSTOMER SATISFACTION
That's why we are ranked #1 in TrustPilot and WHTOP. Just search for "SCALA HOSTING REVIEWS" in Google and see what clients say about us, or simply read hundreds of glowing third-party reviews.
