Combell was founded in the early days of the internet, in 1999, and is one of the market leaders in the provisioning of hosting services. It serves companies, software developers, and information technology integrators.
In addition to its pre-made hosting plans, Combell can tailor specialized solutions to your specific needs, and through its managed hosting plans can install, maintain, and upgrade your software and hardware.
Combell’s website can be switched between Dutch, French, and English.
Features and Ease of Use
This vendor offers a collection of beginner-friendly hosting services. Its three web hosting plans are Linux-based and come with a 90-day money back guarantee, up to 250 GB SSD storage space, up to 100 x 500 MB MySQL databases, one-click installer, PHP support, and hosting for up to eight websites.
Other features of Combell’s ISO certified hosting include:
- Free 24/7 premium support
- Free domain name
- Let’s Encrypt SSL certificates
- Unlimited data traffic
- Automatic daily backups
- 99.999% uptime guarantee
- 90-day money-back guarantee
The provided site builder requires no coding experience and comes with more than 140 unique templates and ready-to-use widgets. This, coupled with Combell’s own drag-and-drop control panel, will enable you to create and manage a fully functional mobile-ready website in just three steps.
Combell offers a variety of CMS hosting services for WordPress, Magento, Joomla, and Drupal. It also offers managed hosting solutions that come with 24/7 monitoring, fast networks, proactive support, and advanced protection. Best of all, they can be tailored to your exact requirements.
Pricing and Support
Combell’s plans are not the cheapest you will find, but they’re reasonably priced for the features, and they are often offered at promotional prices. You can pay by credit card, Bancontact, iDeal, or bank transfer.
Although Combell advertises monthly prices, you can only purchase plans on annual terms. And although there are no free trials, the almost unheard of 90-day money-back guarantee gives you a full three months to decide if this really is the right host for you.
Combell offers 24/7 telephone support, it responds to emails within twenty-four hours, and it also handles support issues via ticketing. I wasn’t impressed with the response time when I tested the ticket system since it took the sales team two days to get back to me. On the plus side, at least this was a real response rather than a robot.
If you are a beginner webmaster, you will really benefit from Combell’s collection of video tutorials, and its knowledge base should tell you everything you need to know to get started.
