First of all I want to tell you this is my honest review of B3 Hosting.

I did not get paid for this review, nor I'm affiliate, the owner or connected with the company by any means, so don't give me BS that I'm doing this for money or whatever...it's a pure honest review from a guy that has tried over 50 hosting providers throughout the world in the past 20 years.

Now let's get into subject...

I got my first contact with this company through a friend from France who's a bettor (like me) and owns a sports tipsters website. I needed a dedicated server for my e-store...I have a massive database with tens of thousands of products and I was looking for a dedicated server anywhere in Europe. I wasn't looking for cheap, unreliable server that could break when first order was made.

I initally had about 3 poor tries with larger companies from UK, France and Czech Republic and I wanted to try something different. I wasn't looking for an appartment hosted server either, but I wasn't looking for some jumbo hosting company that would have me waiting 48 hours to answer a bloody ticket if needed.

Therefore I decided to go on with the advice of my friend (who by the way, has an amazing website with over 10000 active users and has a shared hosting that pays less than 15 USD/month, which is amazing if you ask me).

I looked at their website, seemed really pro, which was a great first impression. Secondly looking at prices for dedicated servers, really liked the fact that there's a lot of options and they have you the option to configure your own server (adding as many RAM as you need or SSD and removing/ adding more features, as requested), which is something most jumbo providers don't allow.

Then I decided to contact the customer representative to see if I can get a better deal if I had paid a server for 1 year in advance (TIP: It doesn't say anything about that on dedicated servers page, but if you really can afford to pay in advance for 1 year, you will get a good discount). You can see on all other pages that there are up to 50% discounts for paying in advance VPS servers, shared hosting or wordpress hosting, but nothing on dedicated servers, however if you ask the customer support, they will provide you a discount.

I personally got a 20% discount for paying a server in advance so instead of paying 139 EUR/month, I ended up paying 111.2 EUR/month, which is really great for 12 Cores, 32GB RAM with 240GB SSD and guaranteed 500Mbps internet...unlimited traffic, of course...

I was more than satisfied with the fact that they even helped me migrate my website even if I didn't need it, and now my website runs faster than ever. I get reply to my tickets very fast (in about 1-2 hours at most) and I've even paid 50 EUR/month for one of their guys to manage my server for me...I mean what can you ask for more?

I'm already with them for about 11 months and looking to ask them to buy 2-3 more years (maybe I'll get an additional discount - Wish me luck :D )



To put it shorter here are the:

PROs:

Answering time for tickets is really fast (never had a ticket that didn't have an answer in less 2 hours at most) - They claim 24/7 technical support, which is correct in my case.

They have many datacenters so you can host your website/server in either Romania, France, UK, or Germany. As far as I understand from them, they're planning to open another datacenter (or to parter with a company with a datacenter) in South Africa, US, Australia and Canada.

Massive discounts when paying for 1 year upfront (up to 50% on some services)

Many payment processors accepted (PayPal, credit/debit card, cryptocurrency) and I think they also accept Skrill, Neteller, but I'm not 100% confident about that

According to pagespeed and gtmetrix both my website and my friends website are about 25-30% faster than the old hosts we had, so I personally don't mind at all :)

CONs:

Live chat is only available during working hours in Romania (GMT +2), so all commercial, technical and sales question have to be sent via ticket if not during working hours ( Monday - Friday: 09:00 - 18:00, Saturday: 09:00 - 13:00 GMT +2). Not a big deal for me, but some people want live chat support.

Website is only in Romanian and English (sorry my French friends)

Small team of experts...as far as I understand they have less than 20 people in the company...for some may seem a lot, but they're still a small company compared with jumbo giants. I don't mind about that, because I was actually looking for smaller company to form a relationship.

In conclusion, if you're looking for a small serious company that can provide you top class hosting, you can give B3 Hosting a shot. As far as I saw on Google search there are more B3 hosting companies, but I'm recommending the one from Romania ending with .ro domain name. Prices are more than decent, you can get great discounts for paying in advance and the support is awesome. If you want no headaches you can pay 50 EUR/month and tech guys will take care of all server issues for you, offering you 24/7 + phone support any time, so you can rest assured your business is up and running always.

Thank you for your time and let me know if you have any questions about them....I would answer as far as my knowledge about them goes.

Let me know in the comments if other people have tried them and what's their opinion about them!
