Features and Ease of Use
DevonWebs offers four kinds of shared plans; WordPress plans, Web hosting plans, Windows plans, and Windows Plesk plans. All of these have features that include the following:
- 99.9% uptime guarantee
- Free SSL certificate
- Daily automatic backups
- From 5GB to unlimited disk space
- Unlimited bandwidth
The WordPress and Web hosting plans are Linux-based and support PHP programming language. They come with MySQL/MariaDB databases as well as phpMyAdmin access. The Plesk Windows plans come with CloudLinux stability. With the Windows and Windows Plesk plans, supported languages include PHP and ASP.NET. It comes with both MySQL and MSSQL databases.
The main difference between the Windows Plesk plans and the Windows plans is that the latter is hosted on the cloud and you have to pay extra for MSSQL databases.
For the Linux based plans, Nginx web server is used along with Stack caching tool for fast loading times, while the Windows-based plans come with Nginx and Litespeed combination.
DevonWebs offers a custom control panel for the Windows plans. Other plans come with Plesk and cPanel control panels depending on the OS on offer; cPanel only for Linux plans as it doesn’t support Windows.
Automatic installation of web scripts is possible with these plans. You can install many of the popular CMS, E-commerce applications, and frameworks. For WordPress plans, you can automate the updating of your themes and plugins; this is an important feature because lack of updates can negatively impact your WordPress website.
All plans come with amazing security features like brute force and DDoS protection, web application firewall (WAF), ModSecurity, malware scanning, cageFS, and Toolkit security for WordPress.
It uses SSD, which is known for having a high performance and offering durability. Its SSD is combined with RAID 10 configuration to ensure further security of data.
Pricing and Support
All plans on the WordPress platform are cheap, making them the most affordable. This is closely followed by the Windows Plesk plans, with prices that differ on the website and store page. The other two hosting categories only offer cheap prices on their base plans, the other plans are slightly expensive.
Subscriptions can be monthly or annually, while billing methods include direct debit, Stripe, bank transfer, and PayPal. The vendor offers a 30-day money-back guarantee on all its plans, and free domain registration comes with some of the plans. It also offers free migration service on all plans.
DevonWebs provides support to its clients through live chat, knowledge base with tutorials, phone, email, and ticketing system. I used its live chat platform, but the support staff did not seem very knowledgeable about their services.
