Features and Ease of Use
Compuvision offers shared hosting (Linux and WordPress), servers (dedicated, Linux KVM VPS, windows dedicated, and managed), cloud hosting, and resellers (Linux and Windows). It also brings several security solutions (SiteLock, SSL, and CodeGuard’s cloud backup), website building and design solutions (Weebly, Impress.ly, themes and plugins for Joomla, Magento, Prestashop etc.), and email solutions (G Suite, business and enterprise email) for its customers.
The company offers 99.9% uptime guarantee for its web and reseller hosting plans.
Compuvision offers four Linux shared hosting plans – Linux Plus 100 GB, Linux Plus Ilimitado, Linux Multidominio D3, and Linux Multidominio DI. The entry-level plan provides a single domain together with 100 GB disk space and 1000 GB data transfer. The other three plans offer 1, 3, and unlimited domain respectively. All these higher plans come with unmetered disk space and data transfer. However, all four plans have unlimited email accounts on offer.
All these plans come with:
- State-of-the-art servers
- Support for programming in any language (PHP 5.2.x-7.1.x, Python, Perl, MySQL 5 etc.)
- Top-notch security (with password protect directories, secure FTP access, virus and anti-spam protection, leech and hotlink protection, and IP blocking)
- Access to phpMyAdmin
- Cronjobs to schedule tasks
- Customizable error page
In case you want to opt for WordPress plans, Compuvision has four plans on offer – Starter Lite, Performance Lite, Business Lite, and Professional Lite.
Pricing and Support
Though you can’t call Compuvision’s shared hosting plans the cheapest, they are still priced competitively, which makes them a good choice. You can try them without any worry since the company offers a thirty day money-back guarantee.
The Linux plans are payable on a 1-year, 2-year, or 3-year term (though the two higher tier plans can also be paid every 3 or 6 months) in USD, GBP, AUD, CNY, CAD, EURO, INR, TRY, RUB, or COP (Colombian Peso). The WordPress plans too have similar payment terms though they can be paid on a monthly basis as well.
You can reach Compuvision’s support staff via phone, Skype, email, or a ticket system. However, the company specifically mentions that its phone or Skype id is used to communicate only when it’s impossible to resolve their existing or potential customers’ queries through tickets. I raised a ticket for a general inquiry, but failed to elicit any response within twenty-four hours, which was perhaps obvious (for being a non-customer). Since the company serves global clients, the absence of a 24/7 live chat option was a downer for me.
Compuvision’s FAQ section can greatly assist those who prefer the DIY approach to troubleshooting and finding answers to their questions.
