Customer Support: the customer support is highly qualified and has the capacity to handle all kind of consumer’s queries and problems. They offer a variety of ways to get in touch with the company. You can either use toll free phone assistance, live chat or ticket system. Their response time was excellent; phone support agent quickly answered the phone and live chat got instantly connected to an agent & Tickets were answered in 30 minutes most of the time.

 

Speed: Globat’s speed is quite sluggish at times. The following is what result we got when we measured the speed of a website hosted on Globat’s server with Pingdom tools:

This means that if your website is 1MB in size, it would take 13.77 seconds to load.

 

Pros:

  • Good uptime
  • Excellent technical and customer support

Cons:

  • No dedicated IP
  • No SSH Shell Access
  • Slow speed

 

Conclusion – Should you buy it?

Globat makes a great choice for starting a new website. Which Hosting would recommend Globat Web Hosting to new or small websites, mostly when your requirement are less. But we would not recommend Globat Hosting for large or e-commerce websites. So make sure you do a lot of research by reading a lot of hosting reviews and forum discussions.
