AISO provides a thorough and complete hosting service, right from the start. With a vast range of powerful hosting solutions, domain registration, email hosting and a great website builder, there is something to suit everyone, whether you are a small startup or a large enterprise.
Customers will also be pleased to learn that AISO is completely powered by Solar energy, making it an exceptionally green company.
Wanting to learn more about the eco-friendly hosting company, I caught up with AISO’s Head of Operations, Julio Sandoval to ask him a few questions.
The Beginning Of AISO
AISO is a long-standing hosting company, having been established back in 1997. The AISO team has a wealth of skills and expertise, enabling them to provide their customers with a robust and powerful hosting experience. Julio spoke to me about AISO’s inception:
“Since AISO’s inception in 1997, we have strived to be the best-in-class eco-friendly, green web hosting company. AISO recently went through a new ownership change, which was finalized in March of 2020. With that being said, we continue to support AISO’s vision and mission”.
AISO is proud to be an eco-friendly company. It is aptly described as “Web Hosting As Nature Intended”. Since 1997, the AISO team has been on a mission to provide the cleanest, most energy-efficient hosting solutions possible. And, in 2002, AISO made the excellent achievement of using solar energy to run its operation and have been continually making improvements ever since.
More still, each individual working at AISO takes positive steps to be as green as possible. Steps include participating in a recycling programme and using energy-efficient technologies.
The company provides some impressive stats to show its audience the positive impact their green approach has on the planet. These stats show how AISO’s solar panel system eliminates the production of specific products on a yearly basis:
- 34,488 lbs of Carbon Dioxide(CO2/GHG)
- 50.6 lbs of Nitrogen Oxide
- 37.4lbs of Sulfate
To put this into context, this is the same as planting 8 acres of trees every year!
When I asked Julio what he thinks makes a great hosting provider, he referenced the importance of being green for the sake of future generations:
“The way your clients speak about you, says a lot about you. The relationship you have with your client base is very important.
And on top of that, being environmentally conscious to provide a better and bright future for our children and families”.
Building Relationships With Customers
As Juilio stated above, AISO puts a big emphasis on building relationships with customers. This commitment to customer care shows in the fantastic and complimentary reviews on the AISO website.
Julio had lots more to say on the subject:
“Our support staff sets us apart from our competitors. Our clients love our consistency in speed and attitude with resolving their issues. We build relationships with our clients. We have an actual person on the other side, and not someone reading a script. We ensure to listen to our clients feedback, both good and bad. We apply the feedback we receive when and where we can. Our clients know we truly listen to what they have to say”.
Furthermore, Julio describes service reliability as being top on his list of priorities when it comes to AISO, which is great.
Hosting Solutions From AISO
AISO features a good selection of affordable hosting options to suit all budgets and requirements. I’m going to go through some of these in detail:
Shared hosting plans
AISO’s shared hosting is a very cost-effective option. They use enterprise-level hardware to deliver high reliability, with uptimes of 99.9%. The “Most Loved” shared hosting plan from AISO is the Linux1 priced at $6.25/per month when paying for 3 years in advance. However, if you prefer to pay monthly, the plan is still good value at $9.95/month.
The plan incorporates a generous amount of inclusions such as:

Customers will also get email, live chat and phone support, as and when they need it. Additionally, all plans come with multiple daily backups, Web Application Firewall, and a handy 30-day money-back guarantee.
AISO has just the one set WordPress-optimised hosting plan, which costs $18/month when you pay for 3 years in advance. Like the shared web hosting plans, you also get the option of paying monthly, which costs $19.99/month. The plan features:
- 15GB storage
- 15GB email storage

The plan also includes complete site security and multiple daily backups for your peace of mind.
Dedicated Hosting Plans
If you want a server all to yourself, dedicated server hosting could be the best hosting solution for your business. Dedicated hosting plans from AISO are free to set up and you can choose between Windows and Linux OS. The lowest-priced dedicated hosting plan costs $112.50/month and includes:
- 2GB RAM
- 75GB disk space

Additionally, you can add extra space, storage or RAM to your plan for an extra monthly fee, which is nice and convenient. The plans include free server backups and restores.

Lastly, a huge thanks to Julio for answering my interview questions.
