Struggling to find a good hosting company with good uptime, support, security, and speed? Well, you are not alone. Finding a good host for your website can be a difficult task. Today I am going to tell you about the popular web hosting Nestify. I have reviewed some of the hosting companies like Sitecountry, Hostinger, Verpex, and many more. In continuation, I will do a Nestify hosting review and judge it on speed, support, pricing, security, backups, and user interface parameters.
Nestify is Fully Managed WordPress Hosting which can be considered as Cloudways alternative. It provides cloud hosting and gives you the facility to choose from AWS, Vultr, Linode, UpCloud, and Digital Ocean. But it does not provide Google Cloud which you can get with Cloudways.
It is built for WordPress type of hosting while Cloudways gives you more options. Let’s move forward with the review of Nestify Hosting.

Nestify Hosting Review
Speed and Performance
Nestify uses AWS EC2 & Vultr Bare Metal so speed is not a big deal. They use Nginx server types on all hosting plans which is not the fastest one as LiteSpeed server. Previously they were using Litespeed Server but all new servers will be hosted on Nginx.
The reason they gave about Nginx was that it showed better performance.
They offer high-frequency CPUs and unlimited bandwidth. If we talk about storage, they are offering NVMe SSD Amazon Elastic Block Storage. Their hosting speed varies from 500 to 600ms on US Servers.
Nestify’s hosting plan includes an integrated CDN with unlimited bandwidth that makes it faster than others. Their CDN serves over 1 billion page views per day with less than 20ms response time. They offer free premium CDN and not a free CDN like Cloudflare.
One more feature they have is Google Pagespeed Optimization which includes image optimization and core web vitals booster. I don’t know how they are doing it but you can see the option to activate in their user interface. All process of optimization is handled from the backend.
It offers image optimization and image delivery in WebP format with all plans. It can save you money as you don’t need to spend money on image optimization tools.
WebP image delivery is handled by BunnyCDN which is one the best plugin for image delivery.
Uptime: Normally they guarantee 99.99% uptime for every site they host. But in an answer to one review at G2, they claim that those who use Nestify with their integrated CDN have 100% uptime.
They have data centers in US, London, India, and Australia but it also depends on the server you choose.
They have 6 different server types: Vultr (Bare Metal), Vultr (High Frequency), UpCloud, Linode, AWS, and Digital Ocean.
Now depending on these server types, you have different Server Regions available.
|Server Type||Server Region||Server Size|
|Vultr (Bare Metal)||US, India||1 CPU, 1GB RAM, 25GB Disk to 16 CPU, 48GB RAM, 480GB Disk|
|Vultr (High Frequency)||North America, South America, Europe, Asia, Australia, Africa||1 CPU, 2GB RAM, 64GB Disk to 16 CPU, 58GB RAM, 1024GB Disk|
|UpCloud||Chicago, New York, San Jose, London, Frankfurt, Madrid, Amsterdam, Warsaw, Singapore, Sydney||1 CPU, 2GB RAM, 50GB Disk to 16 CPU, 64GB RAM, 1280GB Disk|
|Linode||Newark, Atlanta, Dallas, Fremont, Toronto, Frankfurt, Mumbai, Singapore, Sydney, Tokyo||Standard CPU – 1 CPU, 2GB RAM, 50GB Disk to 16 CPU, 64GB RAM, 1280GB Disk|
Dedicated CPU – 2CPU, 4GB RAM, 80GB Disk to 32 CPU, 64GB RAM, 1280GB Disk
|AWS||US, India, Australia||1 CPU, 1GB RAM, 25GB Disk to 16 CPU, 48GB RAM, 480GB Disk|
|Digital Ocean||New York, San Francisco, Toronto, London, Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Bangalore, Singapore, Sydney||Basic, Premium Intel & Premium AMD from 1 CPU, 2GB RAM, 50GB Disk to 8CPU, 16 GB RAM, 320GB Disk|
Nestify gives you the facility to take free daily backups. You can schedule daily backups and take manual backups whenever required.
These backups are stored on Nestify servers and not on your servers to keep them safe in case something goes wrong.
Automatic backups are kept for 15 days.
You can download and restore backups with a single click. You can also restore backup on another site.
Restoration with Nestify is quite fast and you do not need a backup plugin to take backups.
One of the most interesting features Nestify offers is its Free Hack Fix. No other hosting, I used or researched about offering free malware cleaning.
But here you are getting it for free. Nestify scans your WordPress website for malware and hacks during migration. If they find any malware it be cleaned and your site will be patched to prevent malware and hacking.
Along with malware scanning, Nestify offers all basic security features like DDoS protection, SSL certificate, Web Application Firewall, Two Factor Authentication (2FA), and SSH Access to your server.
SSL certificate is offered by Let’s Encrypt. It also provides a 1-Click Staging environment and automatic WordPress updates.
Automatic daily backups, the ability to roll back to the previous stage, and self-healing features ensure maximum security.
Nestify has hosting plans for all business types and their pricing is according to the resources you use.
Their basic plan starts at $12/month in which you can choose AWS or Vultr Bare Metal servers.
Vultr High Frequency, Linode, and Digital Ocean basic plans start from $24/month. And if you UpCloud the basic plan starts from $29/month.
|Basic||Pro||Pro Plus||Business||Business Plus|
|Storage||25 GB||40 GB||60 GB||80 GB||120 GB|
|CPU||1 Dedicated CPU||2 Dedicated CPU||3 Dedicated CPU||4 Dedicated CPU||8 Dedicated CPU|
|RAM||1 GB RAM||4 GB RAM||6 GB RAM||8 GB RAM||16 GB RAM|
|Server Type||AWS EC2/Vultr Bare Metal||AWS EC2/Vultr Bare Metal||AWS EC2/Vultr Bare Metal||AWS EC2/Vultr Bare Metal||AWS EC2/Vultr Bare Metal|
All these plans can handle unlimited visitors for unlimited sites. You will get unlimited bandwidth and unlimited CDN bandwidth with all plans. Along with this, you will get Global Page Cache, Free SSL, Image optimization, Image WebP conversion, Google Pagespeed Optimization, Free Malware Cleanup, and Free Migrations for all plans.
If you are a newbie or have a website that is new then the Basic Plan at $12 is sufficient for you.
But if you have a large website or looking to scale then Nestify has larger plans for you.
Nestify offers a 60-day money-back guarantee which is almost double that of most hosting companies.
If you feel Nestify is not the hosting you expected you can ask them to refund your money within 60 days. They will issue a full refund to you.
Nestify offers 3 days free trial for Basic, Pro, Pro Plus, Business, Business Plus, n-medium, n-large, n-xlarge, and n-2xlarge.
Even this information is outdated in their knowledge base.
Customer support is very important for any website. If support is poor you may lose traffic and money.
Nestify provides 24×7 support for WordPress Core, Plugins, and PHP-related questions. You can connect with them via chat and email.
They have a knowledge base where you can get the answers to questions related to Migration, Backups, Security, Account Management, etc.
However, their knowledge base does not work as it should. Some pages are broken and a lot of information is outdated. Even they do not have in-depth information about the common issues their customer may face. So, you must be dependent on their human support.
Conclusion About Nestify Hosting Review
I tried to bring the maximum information to analyze Nestify. I hope you found this Nestify Hosting Review valuable. Unlimited visitors, Image Optimization & WebP conversion, Free Premium CDN, and Malware cleaning make it different from others.
You can save a lot of money with image optimization & WebP conversion, free CDN, and malware cleaning.
It also competes with hosting like Cloudways and offers great speed and security.
Many people complained about their customer support and their knowledge base also disappointed me.
Although Add-on features make it very cost-effective and 60-day money-back guarantee makes it trustworthy.
