Editor's Review
Host Introduction XLHost bills itself as “Fast and Reliable” and we’re happy to confirm they live up to this claim. However, you’ll find more with this provider than just speed you can depend on. Before you select XLHost as your next hosting provider, be sure to read the rest of our report.

How We Test
At FindMyHost, we pride ourselves on not simply taking a company at their word. If you look at about mid-page, to the right, you’ll see a link that explains, in detail, what our tests put every company through. Nonetheless, we’d like to provide a brief description before you proceed.

The major elements our company examines are network connectivity, speed and reliability. We also make customer support and feedback a priority, as well as the type of online assistance they provide.

FindMyHost is also careful to examine any claims a provider makes and then tests them to make sure they’re valid. So, if a company promises you can reach them 24/7, we’ll pick odd times in the early morning to confirm this is the case.

XLHost is a privately owned organization with its headquarters in Columbus, Ohio. Its parent company is eNET Inc., which has been providing hosting and other online services since 1993. This makes it one of the first web hosting and dedicated server companies in the entire world. So you don’t have to worry that experience will ever be an issue if you decide to go with XLHost.

Since 2000, XLHost has been in business, providing servers, networks, data centers, operating systems and more, all at a very affordable cost. They’ve become known for constantly growing their repertoire of services as well. Currently, they have customers in more than 130 countries.

Sales Review Grade: A
What we like: You’ll have no issues beginning with XLHost as they make it very simple to get in touch with them, get the answers you need and receive the services you desire. We tested both phone and live chat options, and were very impressed with how we were treated. Of course, it also helped that we got all our questions answered, too. When we worked with them through email or opening a ticket, we also found that XLHost’s personnel were attentive and helpful.
What needs improvement: Nothing at the moment.
Support Review Grade: A
What we like: We were able to get a feel for XLHost’s support side when it came to the server configuration process and installation of our applications. Their technical team left nothing to be desired where support was concerned. This will be extremely helpful for companies going through this situation for the first time or migrating over to XLHost as they were attentive in the setup phase of our agreement.

Chances are you’ll have lots of questions that will require professional assistance and we’re confident they’ll have the answers you need. Even if you've been down this road before, it still helps to know you can rely on a company’s support team.

At one point during our testing process, we ran into a mysql database issue. Impressively, XLHost’s team was able to resolve it within 30 minutes.
What needs improvement: The only improvement we’d like to see from XLHost is technical support over the phone. That would go a long way toward making many of the processes a lot smoother.
Plans / Features Review Grade: A
What we like: The company has a wide range of solutions to choose from, making them a viable option for companies of all sizes in all types of industries. Their services can be broken down to:

• Dedicated Servers
• Managed Hosting Services
• Cloud/VPS Servers
• Managed Security

Within these solutions, you can find options like system administration, data security, parallel plesk panel, firewall protection, VPN (tunnel/mobile user), load balancing and much more.

Not only are these services great when you’re up and running, but they also make it possible for you to transition from your current setup to the ideal one you have in mind. Best of all, XLHost offers month to month deals for their dedicated servers, meaning you don’t have to worry about long term contracts coming back to bite you.

The company has both dedicated and private servers from which to choose. We tested out their dedicated servers and can report that XLHost lives up to their reputation of lightning fast speeds that remain smooth and steady throughout.
What needs improvement: Nothing at the moment.

The FindMyHost Guarantee
When you choose FindMyHost for help in this very important area, we understand how much trust you’re putting into our service. That’s why we always go out of our way to provide detailed and valid reviews. One way we’re happy to do this is by providing the Guaranteed Hosts program. We designed this service to make it that much easier to make a choice you’ll be happy with. A company featured on this site with our guarantee means you also have us to rely on when you need support too.

Also, any company you see advertising on our website had to go through a rigorous process to assure they belong here. Our Approved Host program involves a number of tests aimed at holding companies to their word. If we find out that any Approved Hosts violated our bylaws, they are removed from FindMyHost’s website immediately.

It’s important to us that you know our banners and text links aren’t allowed on this site arbitrarily or simply because we’re being paid. Know that we vouch for all of them. If you want more information about our Guaranteed Web Hosts program or Approved Host program, you can find links on this page that will explain them all in detail.

Just about any company in need of hosting or similar services will be happy with XLHost. You’ll be offered just about every service under the sun, at an affordable price (including the provisions of the contract) and ongoing support.
