DGWCloud was founded in 2014 and launched new services in 2018. It provides domain registration, SSL certificates, cloud hosting, shared hosting, virtual servers, dedicated servers, and semi-dedicated servers.
DGWCloud’s servers sit in the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, Bulgaria, and Finland, and its website is available in English.
Features and Ease of Use
DGWCloud’s Linux shared hosting plans provide these features:
- 99.9% uptime guarantee
- Free SSL certificate
- Daily backups
- Unlimited disk space
- Unlimited bandwidth
Hosting accounts are managed via the Hepsia control panel that includes a one-click installer for popular programs such as WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, and OpenCart. Another way to create your website is to use the Site Studio website builder that helps beginners create a professional web presence via a drag-and-drop interface.
Underpinning your website is the ZFS file system sitting on SSD storage, with servers located in different data centers, so you can choose the closest data center to your target audience.
Pricing and Support
The four shared hosting plans are priced according to the features they provide, and you can pay by PayPal or credit/debit card. You get a free domain name and a free SSL certificate, but you can purchase more advanced SSL certificates separately.
The only billing cycle is annual, so you have to commit for at least a year, but the 30-day free trial allows you to try before you buy.
Self-support resources seem to be limited to a set of frequently asked questions. If these don’t answer all your questions, you should be able to contact the company by telephone, ticket, email, live chat, or WhatsApp. I got quick answers to my questions via the live chat channel:
