Providing Web Hosting for Over 10 Years
JetServer has been providing hosting to their Asian and Israeli customers for over 10 years. One of the major bonus’ of hosting with JetServer would be the fact that they have been up and running for over a decade. This offers peace of mind, as you know that they are knowledgeable and trustworthy. When looking at their reviews, I also found some from long-standing customers who were completely happy with the service that they were provided.
They offer a wide range of web hosting services such as Shared Hosting, Dedicated hosting, VPS and Cloud Hosting, as well as optimized hosting for Joomla, Magento, and WordPress with superfast SSD hosting.
Some customers feel that the pricing is quite expensive but their service is top notch and outweighs the price. At first glance, their shared hosting plans do start at quite a high rate, almost 4 times higher than some of the major hosting providers. However, their VPS and Cloud Hosting rates seem to be a bit more competitively priced. All in all their pricing is fairly standard across the board and not out of line with other hosting providers worldwide.

JetServer offers 3 levels of shared hosting: A Personal Plan – designed for image sites, The Business Plan – for customers with more than one site, and an Advanced Program – which is suitable for commercial sites.

Pros and Cons
No Traffic Restrictions
One great thing about JetServer is that they do not impose any traffic restrictions on any of their services. Which in turn will be great for uptime, should your website incur a surge of traffic during a promotional campaign.
Protection from Hacking
All of the sites on JetServer have protection from hacking. This and the fact that you have the added support of their PHP developers ensure that your site does not incur the trauma of downtime due to hacking.
Servers based in Israel is a great benefit for the local businesses. It is important to have your servers located close to the area that will be served by the website. Therefore the fact that JetServer has servers specifically based in Israel is great news for Israeli companies.
No free domain names on low price plans
Offering free domain names with lower priced service packages allows even those on low budgets and point of entry into the online market space. This is a great feature that seems to have been overlooked in the JetServer packages. It is a service that they offer to higher tier packages on their website.
JetServer offers everything that you would expect from a hosting company. There does not seem to be any service that they don’t offer and it is great that they supply the Israeli market in the main, a fantastic company for those looking for hosting in Israel. We love their focus on customer service and how they go out of their way to provide the best possible solution to fit even the most unique requirements.
