Posted · Category: Hosting, Reviews


Mosso provides web designers and developers with reliable hosting services. Fast and reliable connections to Mosso-hosted websites are achieved because the Company has the support of Rackspace Managed Hosting, an industry leader that currently manages 30,000+ servers for customers all over the world.

To stand out from other hosting companies, Mosso offers a unique hosting solution called Hosting System. It is advanced, enterprise-level hosting technology developed by Mosso that absolutely outweighs running your own server and with less cost. With $100/month, you can enjoy the following features.

80GB Storage Space with 2,000GB Bandwidth
Mosso offers you 80GB Storage Space with unbeatable 2,000GB of monthly bandwidth. You can have as many sites, email addresses and databases as you like.

Pretty and Easy to Use Control Panel
You can setup and manage your websites easily with powerful control panel. If you provide hosting solutions to your clients, they will have their own control panel as well.


Mixture of Windows and Linux TrueHybrid Technology
You can run both Linux technology (PHP and MySQL) and Windows Technology (ASP and .NET) on the same website.

Backup Your Backups
Mosso eliminates single point of failure with RAID technology. They backup your backups and backup their backups as well. There is no need for you to worry about data lost.

To set up and get the server running at Mosso is within minutes. If you are going to provide web design and hosting solutions, you may transfer the support, tedious billing & invoicing jobs of your clients to Mosso at very competitive cost. Mosso will do all these hassle as follows for you.

24-hour Phone and Chat Support
You can choose to outsource the support service for some or all of your domains. It includes 24-hour phone and chat support for $3/month per supported domain only.

Client Billing and Invoicing
You may pick whom you would like to bill and how much you would like to charge. Mosso will collect the fees from your customers and make ACH deposit each month into your back account. It cost only $2 or 4% of the transaction.

One more interesting thing
Mosso is partnering with Native Energy, and their goals are to make their hosting operation completely carbon neutral and to invest in projects that bring more clean energy into the power grid. You can view more details on Native Energy’s website. You can’t really go wrong with Mosso, because they know what to do for mankind. 

To be honest, I am really happy with the hosting solution Mosso provides when I am writing this review. It is really tempting to switch WebAppers hosting to Mosso especially when I intend to develop some more blogs/websites soon. If I plan to join the web design business, Mosso will be one of my picks for web hosting. Much resource (manpower and money) will be saved as I would let Mosso to deal with customer support and related matters. Hoping Mosso can sponsor the hosting for WebAppers. ; )

    I used Mosso on a few sites when they got SSL capabilities (around a year ago). The service and 24/7 support was real good.

    But their uptime was HORRIBLE. They are doing some cutting edge things with ASP and PHP side-by-side. But that means it is cutting edge and unstable. All of my database sites were down for over 48 straight hours one weekend. They refunded the month, but I lost a full weekend from client calls.

    When I left, they still didn’t have CRON possibilites as well as some other normal items. I felt their admin page was clunky and didnt give you access to much either.

    Their webmail system is great (tho I’ve since convinced my customers to use google for their domain).

    Just a warning to folks. If you want to use Mosso for clients, be sure to test out the system for 3 months or so, and read their customer forums. If the customer forums are still filled with complaints, those complaints are very real.

    I wish Mosso the best of luck and hope they get it straightened out, cause it is a heck of an idea.

    Nice write-up. I’ve looked at Mosso before, but I thought they had different pricing levels then, not just the $100/mo.

    It would be interesting to hear from anyone hosting a high-bandwidth site with them.

  • I could be wrong, but I believe Eden.cc uses Mosso to host Freelance Switch, PSD Tuts, Flash Den, etc.

  • I hosted several customer sites at Mosso for about 6 months and had horrible experiences, with numerous outages and regular slow-downs. The control panel is very clunky, taking several unintuitive steps to do a simple e-mail forward setup. I nearly lost a couple of clients as a result of hosting them there.

    Same here.. Only my bad experience with them was back in the start of ’07. Since then its been smooth sailing.

    Little late replying, but I’ve been on Mosso for a while now and haven’t had an issue yet. Could do with a bit more powerful admin panel, but given the multiple environments I suppose it makes sense that its a little roped off.

  • Freelanceswitch and PsdTuts as well as FaveUp from Eden.CC are hosted at rackspace.com . Hardcore hosting. They’re only dedicated, but they’re worth it. They have big big clients. And i mean it.

  • Tried them for six months back in ’07 and nearly lost 2 clients as a result. Way too many outages/slow-downs for my blood. The control panel is pretty and very Web 2.0, but is more of a hindrance than a help in setting things up like e-mail forwards.
