Founded in 2012, Amplica is a Moldovan hosting provider that specializes in a wide range of solutions including shared hosting, WordPress hosting, reseller hosting, dedicated servers, Windows and Linux VPS, and domain registration.
Amplica’s nicely designed but slightly messy website can be switched between the English, Italian, Romanian, German, and Russian languages, but not all the content translates.
Features and Ease of Use
Amplica offers two types of shared hosting: Hosting Moldova and Business Hosting. The Hosting Moldova plans are more limited, resource-wise, and are therefore more suitable for small websites. The Business Hosting plans, on the other hand, offer sufficient specifications for companies with larger websites.
For illustration, here is the feature list for the Business Hosting plans:
- 99.9% uptime guarantee
- SSD storage
- Unlimited storage (except for silver package)
- Unlimited bandwidth (except for silver package)
- Regular backups
- SSL support (certificates sold separately)
All hosting plans (regardless of type) come with the cPanel control panel that provides a user-friendly interface for managing your website files, domains, FTP accounts, email accounts, and much more. The included Softaculous installer allows you to install a range of applications — such as WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, PrestaShop, Magento, TYPO3, and phpBB — with a single click.
Pricing and Support
Amplica’s prices are highly affordable compared with international competitors, with the Business Hosting understandably being more expensive than the Hosting Moldova plans.
You can choose to be billed monthly, quarterly, semi-annually, annually, biennially, or triennially. You get a free domain when you make a three-year commitment, and the 30-day money-back guarantee should make you feel better about doing so. Pay via PayPal, WebMoney, or with a major credit/debit card.
For self-support, Amplica has an ample knowledge base that contains several useful tutorials. For one-to-one support, you can contact the company via telephone, live chat, email, support ticket, or telephone. I found all three electronic channels to be highly responsive, especially the live chat channel:
