All that glitters is not gold. Although Dazzle Web Hosting's website and web hosting plans shine slightly, it's pre-sales support doesn't dazzle at all. And I couldn't progress past the first step of the checkout process.

Overview

Dazzle Web HostingAccording to its Facebook page, London-based Dazzletech Ltd. (trading as Dazzle Web Hosting) was founded in 2008. From shared web hosting and VPS to domain services and SSL certificates, you should be able to get it all here. However, I was unable to purchase any of the plans advertised on Dazzle Hosting’s English-language website.

Features and Ease of Use

This host offers seven cloud-based shared hosting plans, one reseller hosting plan, and ten cloud-VPS plans with a choice of Linux or Windows operating systems. While a dedicated cloud hosting plan is also advertised (via a sister site), the link led to an error page.

The four Linux shared web hosting plans provide you with:

  • 99.9% uptime guarantee
  • One to unlimited hosted domains
  • Intuitive control panel
  • 500 MB to unlimited web space
  • 2 GB to unlimited monthly bandwidth
  • One to unlimited databases
  • Two to unlimited email addresses
  • SSH access with two-factor authentication
  • PHP, Python, Perl, and Ruby
  • Antivirus and anti-spam protection
  • FTP security lock (to secure your FTP server)
  • Hotlink protection (to protect your bandwidth)
  • Website and database backup and restore

The three higher plans include access to 70+ PHP web apps, which you can install without any special technical knowledge. If these aren’t sufficient for building your web presence, you can use the website builder that includes six layout themes, 60+ color themes, six menu styles per template, and a free library with 500,000+ professional photos. You can create your website using a drag-and-drop interface, no coding required.

Hosting servers have superfast SSD storage in RAID 10 configuration to guard against disk data disasters. And these load-balanced servers make optimal use of the available resources to minimize response times and maximize throughput. The cloud-based platform can be autoscaled to add resources as your business grows.

VPS plans come with an SLA-backed 99.99% uptime guarantee, and they allow full root access for complete control of your server.

Pricing and Support

While the Linux starter plan is priced low, the subsequent plans are priced higher than the industry average. You can pay using British pounds, but I can’t say much more (e.g., about the payment methods and billing cycles) because I couldn’t progress past the first page at the checkout.

You get a 30-day money-back guarantee that gives you a month to decide if this really is the right host for you.

Although you should be able to contact the 24/7 support team via telephone, ticket, email, WhatsApp, or contact form, I have to tell you that my pre-sales contact form submission went unanswered. This wouldn’t be so bad, were it not for the fact that the knowledge base is bare:

Bottom line on Dazzle Web Hosting

You could get started with Dazzle Web Hosing’s low-price Linux web hosting plan, if only it were possible to purchase it (or any other plan) online. Furthermore, I’d feel better about this host if I’d been able to summon a pre-sales support response.

Pros

  • 11 years of industry experience
  • Cloud-based technology for speed and resilience
  • Several user-friendly features
  • 30-day money-back guarantee

Cons

  • Only industry-average 99.9% guaranteed uptime (for shared hosting)
  • Can’t purchase plans online

For fast, resilient web hosting, visit Dazzle Web Hosting.
