Alfahosting is a German web hosting service that offers companies and individuals the ability to quickly and easily create fully-functional websites with their website builder service. Users can simply pick a professionally-designed theme from the 250+ choices available, then add in text, images, and other multimedia with Alfahosting’s drag-and-drop editor. All themes were built with responsive design in mind and are industry-specific. No programming or design knowledge is required, although users do have the option of developing their own designs if they find the available choices inadequate. Alfahosting’s website builder also allows users to easily install preconfigured apps from the selection available, though the number of apps users can install is limited by the plans they purchase. Users also have the option of purchasing SSL certificates for their sites, which ensures secure encryption of sensitive data like credit card information and passwords – and which is now a big factor in Google’s ranking algorithm.
New sign-ups have two choices for paid plans: the Homepage Start plan with up to 10 pages and 20 app points, or the more advanced Homepage Pro plan with an online store as well as unlimited pages and app points. Both plans come with ample storage space, a free .de domain, unlimited e-mail addresses, over 250 customizable designs to choose from, Alfahosting’s trademark SEO BoostingBox service, and a free app starter pack. Plans are also slightly cheaper when registrants opt for an annual plan, and a 30-day free trial is available.
