Liquid Web Hosting Review

Liquid Web

Liquid Web is so focused on managed VPS hosting (and dedicated servers) that it only offers shared hosting through its Nexcess subsidiary. Liquid Web appears to believe that you get what you pay for, despite the fact that it is far from an entry-level hosting company. If you want high-quality hosting, you’ll have to pay a premium.


  • We used the cheapest package available, which is fittingly named “2GB RAM,” to do our testing. It’s a good idea to set expectations up front. The package includes 2GB of RAM, 2 CPU cores, 40 GB of SSD storage, and 10 TB of bandwidth, as indicated. As far as starting plans go, that’s perfectly OK. While Windows servers are available, the most affordable option is Linux-only.
  • You absolutely have the option of managing things via the command line. They all include a strong firewall, DDoS protection, and all the other security and stability features you’d expect.
  • The uptime guarantee is 100 percent, however it only applies to server power and network access. To put it another way, it’s entirely up to you to keep your site online. On your managed server, you can create an unlimited number of sites with one caveat: you must choose a server image that has InterWorx as your control panel. (On a single server, classic cPanel allows only five site accounts.)
  • You can benefit from free site migrations and Let’s Encrypt SSL certificates.
  • All servers come with the Apache server by default, however if you pay extra, you can upgrade to LiteSpeed (which is newer and faster).
  • Liquid Web uses Linux server distributions that are quite well-known, such as:
    • CentOS
    • Ubuntu 
    • Debian
    • Fedora 
    • CloudLinux
    • There’s also Windows Server to consider
  • Control panels are not included in the price. Any server with a control panel will increase your monthly charge by a small amount. It’s only that it’s not included.
  • On every OS, the actual support team does not support all control panels. CentOS is required if you want a fully managed server with InterWorx.
  • All of the lower-cost options feature 100GB of free backup space. That’s plenty for folks running smaller sites on a VPS to keep two or three backups on hand at any given moment. Plus, if the need arises, you can always use cPanel to back up individual sites.
  • The team will get your site back up and running without you lifting a finger to fill in a ticket, depending on the type of server you get (the ones labelled Core Managed and Fully Managed specifically). Server are monitored for any issues.


You can easily cover both US coasts, as well as Europe, with data centres in Lansing (Michigan), Phoenix (Arizona), and Amsterdam (all the way over in the Netherlands). However, if you expect to have users from Asia or elsewhere, you should consider employing a CDN to ensure that they have a decent experience as well.


Liquid Web includes two account control panels, in addition to whatever control panel you install on your server.

The new UI is more intuitive, easier to use, and adheres to standard user interface norms. It does not, however, include all of the features of the old UI, which is why there are two of them. You can choose between the two depending on your preferences.

If you use cPanel or Plesk as your control panel, Softaculous is included by default, and you won’t have to pay anything extra for it. You can now install WordPress or any of a hundred other CMSs with a single click, just like you would on shared hosting.

It’s as simple to get started with this one: Go to Domains > Cloudflare in the old UI and enter the email address you want to use.


The customer service team was quick, efficient, and helpful.

While the fundamental services and features of Liquid Web are excellent, they aren’t always intriguing. So, what makes Liquid Web unique? What exactly are you paying all that cash for? To be honest, it’ll go to the support team, which isn’t a bad thing.


You could get solid VPS hosting for a lot less elsewhere, like InterServer or Hostinger, but there’s a lot to be said for having strong support. I received excellent customer service, which is quite valuable. When you add in the rather good performance, you might determine that Liquid Web is a smart investment.

Still… plans that start at $35.00 per month, excluding control panel costs? That’s a difficult sell. If Liquid Web’s feature set does not appear to be tailored to your needs, you may want to seek elsewhere.

Of course, you can pay with any of the major credit cards, or you can use PayPal. If at all possible, utilize PayPal.
