Greek host Aweb offers a wide range of feature-packed, affordable hosting solutions that sit on servers in multiple worldwide locations.

Overview

aweb main

Greek web hosting company Aweb was founded in 2005. It offers a decent range of products and services, including shared hosting, WordPress hosting, VPS hosting, cloud hosting, reseller hosting, dedicated servers, domain registration, and SSL certificates.

Aweb’s website is available in Greek and English, and its servers sit in Greece, France, Spain, Germany, the Netherlands, Lithuania, Poland, South Korea, Russia, Canada, the U.S.A., and Australia.

Features and Ease of Use

Aweb’s four shared hosting plans vary in storage, monthly bandwidth, hosted websites, subdomains, MySQL databases, FTP accounts, and emails. Despite the differences, these plans all provide the following features:

  • SSD storage
  • Antivirus
  • 100% uptime guarantee
  • Free website transfer
  • SSL support (certificates sold separately)
  • Plesk control panel
  • Built-in application installer
  • Zend Optimizer
  • ionCube

While I usually prefer the cPanel control panel, this host provides the Plesk control panel to manage your hosting account. The integrated application installer allows access to hundreds of installable applications, including WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, Magento, PrestaShop, Typo3, and phpBB.  

Your data is safeguarded by automatic daily backups that are kept for up to five days. You can manage the backups from the control panel. 

Pricing and Support

Aweb

For the features on offer, and compared to the industry average, Aweb’s prices are affordable. You can pay by PayPal, credit/debit cards, bank deposit, or Western Union on quarterly, semi-annual, annual, biennial, or triennial billing cycles. Unfortunately, there is no money-back guarantee (as far as I can see) to make you feel better about making a long-term commitment.

For self-support, Aweb has a set of frequently asked questions on its main website, but otherwise no knowledge base. Although you should be able to contact this company by telephone, ticket, or live chat, I have to tell you that my attempts to establish contact via live chat and ticket were unsuccessful.

Bottom line on Aweb

Aweb offers a wide range of feature-packed hosting solutions, but it falls short (for me) when it comes to support.

Pros

  • 100% uptime guarantee
  • Daily backups
  • Plesk control panel
  • Affordable prices

Cons

  • Unresponsive customer support
  • No money-back guarantee
