Brasil Web Host has been offering web development and associated services since 2006. It provides domain name registration, SSL certificates, email hosting, shared hosting, reseller hosting, VPS hosting, and dedicated server solutions.
The vendor’s website is available in Portuguese, and its servers are located in Brazil, the United States, and Canada.
Features and Ease of Use
Brasil Web Host’s shared hosting offerings are categorized according to the control panel you get: cPanel or DirectAdmin. Regardless of the panel you pick, you can expect to benefit from:
- Free SSL certificate
- Unlimited domains
- 2 GB to 50 GB disk space
- Unlimited bandwidth
The CloudLinux operating system isolates you from the effects of other hosted users, and the Cloudflare CDN (with Railgun) caches content for faster page loading and also helps protect you from DDoS attacks. Additional security measures include a firewall, ClamAV, CXS, CSF, and ModSecurity.
Beginners benefit from the Softaculous installer that helps you install 400+ popular apps, including CMS software such as WordPress and Drupal. At the other end of the expertise spectrum, you will find support for PHP plus MySQL with phpMyAdmin. You can also use Cron jobs to schedule scripts to run regularly rather than having to execute them manually every time.
Pricing and Support
The shared plans are priced according to the data center and control panel you pick. For example, DirectAdmin is cheaper than cPanel, and the Canadian data center is less expensive than the Brazilian data center.
You can pay by bank slip, PayPal, or PagSeguro, on a monthly or annual billing cycle. Annual billing attracts a discount, and a 7-day free trial (with cPanel plans) gives you a little time to try before you buy.
There is a comprehensive set of tutorials for self-support, and if these don’t answer all your questions, you can contact the company via WhatsApp or by submitting a support ticket. I was pleased to receive a rapid response to my pre-sales questions:
