D4 is a French internet consultancy company that offers assisted WordPress and WordPress-plus-PrestaShop hosting plans that may be ideal if you need a helping hand with your web hosting.

Overview

D4

D4 is a Paris-based French hosting provider with a French website. This company has 20 years of experience, and it sells much more than just website hosting, so you can also seek out its SEO and software development services. 

Features and Ease of Use 

D4 offers two tiers of shared website hosting that come with the following features:

  • 24/7 technical assistance
  • Consultation services 
  • Website development support
  • One free .fr domain name
  • Up to 25 GB disk space
  • Up to 5 add-on domains

Although additional information is a little scarce, you can expect to benefit from the usual hosting features such as MySQL databases, FTP accounts, SSH access, and a website management interface (i.e., a control panel).

D4’s Showcase Site Pack is aimed at medium-sized businesses that want a WordPress-based web presence. The alternative ECommerce Pack is aimed at companies looking for an e-commerce solution based on WordPress and PrestaShop.

These hosting plans are more like managed services than self-service shared hosting, in the sense that the company will install your CMS, apply any plugins, and provide you with an hour of free consultancy per month.

Pricing and Support 

The hosting prices are very high compared with self-service shared hosting, but probably not for D4’s consultancy-led approach. If you want to “do it yourself,” you can do it more cheaply elsewhere, but if you want a helping hand, then this might be right for you.

Although you can purchase either of the plans online, you are advised that “The price quoted is the starting price of subscriptions,” and you are invited to contact the company for a personalized quote:

Other ways to contact the company are by calling a French telephone number or sending an email, but my exploratory email never received a response. There are no self-support resources, but I wouldn’t really expect this kind of consultancy-led hosting company to offer any.

Bottom line on D4

D4 doesn’t do simple self-service shared hosting, virtual servers, or dedicated server solutions. It offers to help you set up your web presence on one of its two shared hosting plans based on WordPress or WordPress-plus-PrestaShop.

Pros

  • Plans come with expert assistance
  • A simple choice of two hosting plans
  • 20 years of experience
  • A “partnership” approach

Cons

  • High prices
  • No simple self-service shared hosting
