Cameroon-based Bidzoni offers a wide range of services such as shared hosting, VPS hosting, cloud hosting, reseller hosting, WordPress hosting, dedicated servers, domain registration, and associated services.
Bidzoni’s well-organized website can be switched between the French and English languages, and the currency can be switched between nine different options.
Features and Ease of Use
Bidzoni offers Linux and Windows shared hosting, with each operating system having its own set of price plans that vary in terms of disk space, bandwidth, domains, and a few other things. You can also choose from several server locations: U.S.A., U.K., India, and Hong Kong.
All plans have the following features in common:
- 99.99% uptime guarantee
- Automatic backups every five days
- cPanel control panel (for Linux) with the Softaculous installer
- Plesk control panel (for Windows) with a built-in installer
- SSD storage
- Unlimited disk space and bandwidth (except for the Hong Kong plans)
All Linux plans come with the user-friendly cPanel control panel that gives you complete control over your website. It includes the Softaculous installer for popular applications including WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, Magento, and PrestaShop.
The Windows plans are administered using the equally user-friendly Plesk control panel, which provides similar functionality to cPanel and includes a one-click installer that does the same job as Softaculous.
Pricing and Support
The hosting plans are priced in whatever currency you choose (AUD, CAD, CNY, EUR, GBP, INR, RUB, TRY, XAF). You can choose to be billed on cycles from one to ten years, with no apparent discounts for longer terms, and you can add SiteLock and/or CodeGuard at the checkout.
The Windows plans cost more than the Linux plans, as you would expect, but in all cases, you get a 30-day money-back guarantee to (in a sense) try before you buy.
My support experience was mixed. My test support ticket seemed to fall on deaf ears. However, I found answers to many of my questions in the comprehensive knowledge base:
