Reliability (5/5)

★★★★★

Rest assured that you site will be accessible when hosting your site with Apollo as this company is more than reliable. In Austin, Texas sits a huge data facility where redundant backups, forced filtered cooling, interrupted power supplies and backup servers are set in place to assure a continuous operation. Apollo uses some of the best equipment available with hot-swap Fujitsu drives and reliable backup bones that ensure a fast internet connection.

Price Value (3.5/5)

★★★½☆

Apollo’s basic plan is available for $6.97 per month on a 24-month contract. This plan is limited in comparison to offers from other companies with 50 GB of storage and 500 GB of bandwidth. You have the ability to host 20 domains, unlimited sub-domains and are provided a generous 500 email accounts. The biggest drawback to this plan is the lack of e-commerce tools as your account is only compatible with a PayPal shopping cart. More functionality can be added with their Business and E-commerce Pro packages which get rather expensive at $13.97 and $20.97 per month respectively.

Control Panel (4.5/5)

★★★★½

Apollo provides its customers with the intuitive Plesk control panel. While the features of the basic plan are limited in regard to e-commerce, you still have control over various critical aspects such as webmail, the Mailbox Cop spam filter and the Plesk Application Vault, a program that is similar in functionality to cPanel’s Fantastico. This software lets you install a range of scripts from the Mambo CMS to B2evolution blogging software. Plesk ensures that managing the features of your hosting account is a breeze.

Customer Support (5/5)

★★★★★

One area Apollo definitely isn’t lacking in is support. This company keeps a team of trained professionals on deck 24/7 to answer your questions. Aside from around the clock support via phone, email and live chat, they also provide assistance with Quickstart guides, a knowledgebase, online manuals, video tutorials and a community forum. All of these factors attribute to Apollo’s ability to provide their clients with world-class support.

Overall Value (4/5)

★★★★☆

As a whole, Apollo offers a pretty good value for your money. We would just like to see a little more packed into the basic plan, especially in the e-commerce department. The low amount of bandwidth and storage may also be a turn off for some, making this option more suited for users with a low volume of traffic.

For only $6.96 per month, sign up with Apollo Hosting today and receive $25 free in Google AdWords to kick start your website!

    Very expensive when you consider what other companies charge. The sites stay up well enough, but it’s not worth the cash I have to put down, it’s just far too expensive compared to everyone else.

    The NEW Apollo Hosting/Endurance Int’l is INCOMPETENT – Tech Support Sucks.
    I have two websites, both w/Miva carts and was told I would be migrated with no downtime. I get an email last week telling me I’ve been migrated. Both of my sites were down almost 36 hours. You call tech support and you get a Tier 1 rep, who basically know nothing. They put in a ticket for a Tier 2 – then you are lucky if you hear from themin 48 hours. I called, emailed, live chat, online support, they don’t care if your sites are down. What a waste of money to hire 2 people for one job. Not to mention, paying customers deserve better.

    I was getting email from the old server and new one, 3-8 emails each. Crashed my Outlook numerous times. I put in a ticket and the guy didn’t even know what Miva was. He put the ticket in as Meba Then I get an email the next day saying it’s my problem, they don’t support Miva. Miva called them, etc. and they got things running. Then less than a week later, I get yet another migration email. They are freakin’ idiots. Both sites have been down since (5 days now). I have called at least a dozen times – they are working on it and will have it up in a few hours. Yeah right. I’m moving to a Miva partner. I have to pay $25 more a month but they actually have a clue. Basically, I’ve been unemployed almost a week thanks to them hiring tech support that are just downright unqualified and stupid. And then I find out today all my data is corrupt.

    It’s been a nightmare. RUN, RUN, RUN from them, go somewhere else.
