Good service
Generally happy with the cost/features of their offerings. Support are fast when there is an issue.

There was a big issue about 6 months ago with one of their servers, and they were very good at keeping me informed of progress and with resolving the issue.

I am planning on leaving my hosting with them. Very happy customer.

Prompt courteous service
Always solve any problems I seem to have, quickly and efficiently.
Not very verbose, at least in English, but that's probably because they appear to be based in Bulgaria.
(Unless, LOL! that's a Bulgarian proxy I am looking at).

Whatever. They do the job. I'm satisfied.

Scala hosting is very rude and they are a fraud and they cheat on their customers. They deleted my domain without any notice, and they refused to let me download backup of my website. I am contacting my bank for a refund eventually after hearing a lot of vulgarity from Scala Hosting's bad mouthed support and billing departments.

Please stay away from them if you do not want to risk your thousands of dollars worth of website. I spent so much money on my website and they simply deleted it without warnings. The worst thing is, they are now asking for ransom money to restore it from their backups. I feel like I am stuck with some Pirates or some sick

Overview

About Scala Hosting

Scala Hosting provides cheap reseller hosting, power reseller plans, shared web hosting, VPS hosting and dedicated servers. Our target is to provide the best reseller program for our clients at affordable price. Include free R1soft backups, 24/7 live support, RAID10 servers and our offer turns into the quality reseller hosting solution you want to have!

Why should I choose Scala?

Why should you choose us? Below we will list some of the reasons why you should choose us and not another provider.

We hire only great people. Everyone working at Scala Hosting has passed a technical support test and an interview and has more than 3 years of experience in the web hosting industry. All our representatives are friendly and ready to help at any time of the day. Everyone at Scala knows what he is doing and you will see that once you contact us and talk live with us on our live chat.
We are oriented to quality. Nowadays, there are more and more new providers offering lower and lower prices and trying to attract customers with that. We do not attract customers with cheap services. We attract clients with quality. Our target is not to be cheap but offer great services at affordable prices. If you are looking for a quality service then we are the right choice.
We do not overload servers. Most of the web hosting providers are trying to add more and more accounts to their servers to increase their profits and that way the servers become overloaded and overcrowded which results in slow opening of web sites, downtime and bad service. We have a strictly set limit of number of accounts per server to ensure the server will not be overloaded and sites will open quickly at all times hence our clients will be happy with our services and once they find us and experience our services they will never look for another web hosting company.
Our servers are located in one of the best datacenters and network in the world. We have done a solid investigation before choosing the datacenter we will work with and now all our servers are located at SoftLayer datacenter in Texas which allows us maximum flexibility and access to our equipment.
Our servers are powerful and reliable. We use Intel Xeon Quad core servers with a minimum of 4GB RAM memory and 100Mbit/s connectivity. All servers have a minimum of 4 drives configured in RAID10 format and hardware raid controllers for maximum reliability. That means our server will remain functioning even if 2 drives fail at the same time (1 drive from each raid1 sub-array in the RAID10 array). That also means you will not lose data. That configuration provides a lot of power for your web sites and they will open quickly at all times.
All servers and all services on them such as http, mysql, e-mail, cPanel, ftp are monitored 24/7 by our technical representatives. All services on each of our servers are being monitored every minute and we are alerted if a service goes down so we fix it immediately. We always understand first if there is a problem with any service on any of our servers. That gives you assurance your server is taken care of and you can sleep at night knowing your web site is at good hands.
Backups are important with us. At Scala you get free daily and weekly backups. Most providers provide only daily or only weekly backups as an option. We provide both. Moreover, we provide 7 backup points for the last 7 days. That's right. You can choose to restore from 7 restore points for the last 7 days. On top of it, you can restore your account yourself at any time of the day completely free of charge via your control panel - cPanel. We use R1soft backups on all our servers and they are integrated into cPanel so that our clients can restore data at anytime without contacting us.
Satisfaction is guaranteed. You can search for reviews about us on the internet and you will find multiple positive ones. That's the result of the reasons we posted above about why you should choose us. All of our clients are happy with our services. You can become one of them too by giving us a try and experience the quality web hosting services we provide.

"I changed many hosting companies since 1999 bunt with Scala Hosting i feel lucky. I write this review because I read reviews from many sources before I chose hosting.
Customer support is very fast, almost instant (i had only one issue but it was solved in 5 minutes)
Uptime is good. No interruptions of service and a fast server.
I recommend Scala Hosting."
