Dutch host Argeweb offers first-year hosting for only one euro, but its hosting plans get pricey thereafter. I'd feel better about this hosting business of I'd been able to summon a pre-sales support response.

Overview

Argeweb

Dutch internet solutions provider Argeweb brings 19 years of industry experience to the hosting table. According to its website, this host holds three ISO certifications and has served 50,000 customers to date.

The supplied services include shared hosting, virtual servers, reseller hosting, domain services, and SSL certificates. You can also get email hosting, web design, Office 365, and more.

Argeweb’s website is in Dutch.

Features and Ease of Use

Argeweb offers three shared hosting packages that are optimized for WordPress, Joomla, and Magento. Its four VPS packages (which are optimized for WordPress, Joomla, and Drupal) can be configured with the required resources. There is also a managed WordPress package and configurable reseller hosting packages (but you’d have to contact the team to get them).

The shared hosting packages provide you with:

  • 5 GB to 50 GB space
  • 20 GB to 250 GB traffic
  • 15 to 100 email addresses
  • Spam filter and antivirus
  • Website statistics
  • Backups

Beginners get the ability to install popular CMS systems without having to be a technical wizard. Advanced users can use Cron jobs to schedule scripts to run regularly rather than having to execute them manually every time. Everyone gets access to an online backup service to reduce the risk of data loss.

Another notable feature of Argeweb is its focus on green hosting, which means powering its servers with renewable energy.

Pricing and Support

Argeweb’s shared hosting prices are higher than the average, but you only have to pay one euro for the first year of hosting. With VPS plans, you only pay one euro for the first month of hosting. The only payment currency appears to be euros.

The 30-day money-back guarantee means you should be able to back out of your shared hosting deal with a full refund if you’re not entirely happy.

Argeweb’s customer support team can be contacted by telephone, ticket, email, fax, postal mail, and even personal visit. Unfortunately, my exploratory email went unanswered.

For self-support, there is a decent blog and a collection of categorized frequently asked questions:

A Free Domain is included when purchasing any hosting service from Argeweb

Bottom line on Argeweb

Argeweb could be worth checking out if you’re looking for a Dutch provider of a wide range of hosting solutions. However, you’ll pay a high price after the initial period.

Pros

  • 19 years of industry experience
  • A wide range of solutions
  • Green hosting
  • First-year hosting for one euro

Cons

  • High prices after the first year
  • No pre-sales support response

For cheap first-year hosting, check out Argeweb.
