AdPlus was founded in the year 2000 as a website development company that quickly pivoted to become a hosting provider. They serve thousands of websites from Greek data centers, but their website is in English as well as Greek.
Features and Ease of Use
AdPlus sells a comprehensive selection of services including shared website hosting, WordPress hosting, dedicated servers, virtual private servers, and cloud management. They also provide other website solutions such as e-commerce hosting, CRM hosting, and high traffic hosting.
To give you an idea of their services, their shared hosting plans come with the following features as standard:
- 99.9% uptime guarantee with SLA
- Automatic backups performed at night, every night
- Servers colocated in Greek data centers
- One-click activation for instant setup
- From one to ten domains per plan
- Between 10 GB and 20 GB disk space
- 1 TB of traffic per month on all plans
Considering they are such a well-established company, the AdPlus website is actually quite empty, so it’s hard to learn a huge amount about their network or servers except that they are based in Greece, which is no doubt good news for Greek customers. They have built their own cloud-based infrastructure with solid state disk drives (SSD) for much faster speeds than traditional drives. And they have a team of on-site engineers.
Unlike many companies that advertise an uptime guarantee but don’t actually back it up with any kind of compensation plan, AdPlus has a 99.9% uptime guarantee SLA that offers credits for excessive downtime. Hopefully, I’ve saved you some time by reading through all their fine print to find this out!
For experts, they say that they offer the latest version of PHP. They don’t state the actual version number, so I can only assume that they keep up with all the updates. For beginners, they offer one-click WordPress setup and specialist WordPress staff.
Pricing and Support
AdPlus prices are quite high compared to both local Greek companies and also international competitors. However, you may be willing to pay the extra cost if you’re looking specifically for SSD-based servers in Greece. Beware that prices are exclusive of VAT, and domain registration and SSL certificates cost extra.
Hosting can be purchased on monthly or yearly terms, with generous discounts for the yearly options. There is no free trial but there is an anytime money-back guarantee that is more generous than you get with most other companies.
Customer services can be contacted by telephone, email, and live chat, but they do not clearly advertise their hours of business. To make matters worse, a security error blocks me from accessing their live chat because (apparently) their SSL certificate is invalid. Unless it’s my mistake – which is quite possible – then this could be quite off-putting for a company that supposedly specializes in supplying SSL certificates.
