Alfahosting is a German web hosting service offering both virtual and dedicated hosting. They cater to a wide range of clientele, from beginners to professionals. Uptime is excellent at 99.95%, and Alfahosting users report that the customer service is excellent, with support staff often responding to their tickets within minutes. Unique to Alfahosting is the SEO BoostingBox extension included in all of their paid plans. With it, users can track how their website is performing on Google as well as how they fare in comparison to their competitors for their targeted keywords.
Alfahosting plans are affordably-priced, with discounts given when users select a longer plan duration. For small businesses or personal sites, we recommend Alfahosting’s Starter L plan, which comes with a free domain, 5 GB SSD storage, 2 GB e-mail storage, an SSL certificate, and more. Larger or growing businesses can opt for the Multi-L plan, which includes WordPress and Joomla! integration, an online shop and forum installation, 75 GB SSD storage space, 50 GB e-mail storage, an app pack with a variety of preconfigured apps, and even 100 euros of Google AdWords advertising credit. Users will be happy to know that Alfahosting also offers a 45-day free trial: just choose a web hosting plan and you’ll be able to try out all of its features (sans outgoing e-mail) with no obligation. After 45 days, you can either allow your site to be deleted, or move forward with a paid plan.
