... support—that's where they really shine... solutions by real people that really "get it"
Customer service and support at Apis is nothing short of outstanding...
... quick, fast, and a beautiful control panel to boot.
Support is also a dream - no crazy multi-tier support, just direct access ...
A flawless and faultless service for over 4 years that has never caused me to look for another hosting provider. Thanks!
Outstanding uptime, excellent customer support, a painless setup process, quick, fast, and a beautiful control panel to boot.
... the control panel interface blows cpanel out of the water.
... even nicer is that when I recommend Apis, it makes me look good too.
I transitioned to Apis Networks in April 2010 after hearing very positive reviews of the service, and I haven't been disappointed.
Their backend admin panel has been a lifesaver. Everything is right where you'd want it, everything is quick ...
... I was working for one of the largest web hosting providers in the world ... but I tried Apis and moved immediately
Apis Networks has been a Godsend in my search for good hosting
Some of the most helpful and knowledgable people I have dealt with
Between the control panel, ... and the impressively responsive staff, I've had no problems managing five domains even as a novice.
They are to be commended for their attentiveness, their technical acumen, and their personal approach.
I love you, Apis!
I had hosted web sites with 4 different providers prior and the switch to Apis was the best decision ever.
Just wanted to say I love Apis Networks and you are by far my favorite web host.

All applications require a Developer or higher

full control of your environment. Each additional Passenger process beyond what is allocated
cost an additional $5/mo.

Frequently Asked Questions
What guarantees do you provide?
We provide a 60-day 100% money-back guarantee on all hosting
accounts. Everything except for domain registrations, which are managed
separately, is refundable.
What security is in place?
We use two filesystem security models: (a) a pivot-root isolation for all services except PHP and (b) a combination
of access control lists and open_basedir restrictions for PHP to restrict access to interpreters
and filesystem locations outside the pivot root assigned to an account. In addition to filesystem
isolation and restrictions, brute-force protection is in place for login systems restricting
invalid logins. Finally, certain file storage URIs for well-known PHP applications are locked down to serve
only static content.
Do you do only Linux hosting?
Yes, our parents told us as children to do one thing, and do it well. We specialize in
shared hosting with enhanced process isolation to safeguard your data from others.
Do you provide phone support?
Yes, phone support is provided for Business and
It is better to provide clients with guarantees, like backups and server
performance. How do you backup unlimited data? How do you plan hardware for
unlimited usage? Sadly, unicorn technology is not where it needs to be yet.
What does a RAM allocation provide?
RAM allocations are done per-account using control groups to provide clients with a fair,
equitable amount of resources. You can run as many Passenger or background applications as
you would like. Unlike a VPS, system services do not count towards your memory usage!
How many Passenger workers are permitted per application instance?
Up to 3 workers may spawn for a given instance. More than 3 may be spawned on a case-by-case
basis, but puts pressure on your account RAM.
What applications are supported by Passenger?
Virtually any application that runs off Node.js (this includes Meteor), Python, or Ruby
is supported as a standalone Passenger application. This includes derivative frameworks such
as Sinatra, Rack, Koa, Mezzanine and software such as NodeBB, Trac, Discourse, and Keystone.
Can I change my package type?
Certainly! You may change packages whenever. All credit is prorated per diem and applied to the
difference of the new package. In the event of a downgrade, credit is converted into
additional days. Read more in the KB.
Our primary focus is hosting – we prefer to do one thing and we to do it very well. Keeping
your registrar separate from hosting is considered a best practice within the industry, which is why
we use a separate portal for domain management. Domains are managed via domains.apisnetworks.com

Essential: 1 year
Developer: 1 year
Business: 6 months
Enterprise: any period
Private registration (masked WHOIS details) may be added onto a domain for $8.95/year. The first year is $4.95.
