Unreliable shared hosting, wouldn't recommend

Masterweb has been in business since 2004 providing reliable hosting to customers in and around Indonesia. They offer shared hosting, VPS solutions, dedicated servers and colocation services to their customers. In addition to the hosting, they also offer online marketing services, website builders, domain name registration and more. The site is written in Indonesian and while it is possible to translate it, the result is not that great. Things are still difficult to read, which makes it so those not from Indonesia may want to look else ware for hosting.
When looking through their site I couldn’t find much information about the stability of their services. They don’t have an uptime guarantee that I could find, and most of the package details didn’t include hardware names or other details. I didn’t find anyone complaining about the hosting being unstable, but this could be due to the language barrier since most users who write reviews for Masterweb would do it in Indonesian.
You’ll find that this company likes to keep things simple. When looking at their shared hosting options, for example, there are three total choices and they only list a few features for each one. Things like unlimited bandwidth and email accounts, limited options for disk space and free setup. If you want more information, you will need to scroll down for a more detailed guide of what they have to offer.
When you move up to their VPS solutions you will have even less information in their main section, but it is available closer to the bottom so you can get it if needed. The VPS solutions can have 10-30 gigs of disk space and 128meg to 1 gig of RAM.
Their dedicated servers are more powerful than the VPS, though not really by too much. Oddly, they provide less information about their dedicated servers than they do their shared or VPS options. Each server really just states that it includes unlimited bandwidth and the network connection speeds. To get more details you have to go through the ordering process, which is somewhat inconvenient.
From what I have been able to gather, this company offers easy to reach tech support that is there for you 24/7. They really seem to care about their customers and getting them the help that they need. Whether you’re just starting a personal blog or you need to run a site for your small business, this company can certainly help you along the way.
All the prices are listed in the native currency of Indonesia. When putting them through a currency converter you will find that the prices are quite competitive. Many packages are actually very low cost and the entry level hosting option is actually free (though you only get 1 meg of disk space). No matter which type of hosting you need, you’ll find that it is very affordable.
The hosting with this company is going to be easy to understand. Most of what they offer is shared hosting that can be set up and running in just minutes. The higher end hosting options are also easy to understand, even if they don’t always provide you with all the information you would like. Most people don’t necessarily want to know the technical details of their hosting so that may not be a bad thing.
The hosting with this company is pretty good overall with some minor concerns. They have become the number one hosting company in Indonesia, which is a good indication of the quality of their hosting services. If you’re looking for hosting in Indonesia, this is a good option to consider.
