DL SERVER is a small hosting company that simply isn’t a match for big brands like Hostinger. The bigger hosting companies simply offer a better price for similar configuration.
Iranian web hosting provider DL SERVER started its journey in 2007, initially to offer shared hosting and virtual servers, and now to offer a wide variety of hosting services including dedicated servers and domain registration. It has more than 150 active servers in over 10 countries.
DL SERVER’s website is in Persian, but its client area supports 25 additional languages. Not all sections translate well into English, and some of the website links lead to no content.
Features and Ease of Use
DL SERVER offers eight cPanel shared hosting plans that have differing disk space (from 100 MB to 5 GB) but the same unlimited bandwidth, databases, FTP, and email accounts. You also benefit from:
- Choice of Windows and Linux operating systems (such as Debian)
- European and U.S. data centers
- RAID redundancy
Software RAID duplicates your data for absolute redundancy so that the system stays up if any single disk fails.
Besides shared hosting, DL SERVER also offers five VPS and five dedicated server plans for U.K. users, plus seven virtual servers and five dedicated servers for other international (non-U.K.) customers. And if you want help with your website design, this provider offers a wide range of web design services to design, support, and promote your site with SEO.
Pricing and Support
DL SERVER’s shared hosting plans are priced competitively, and you can pay for them in Iranian rial on monthly or yearly terms via the Bank Mellat payment gateway or the Saman Kish payment method.
You can contact this host’s customer support team by telephone (9 am to 1 pm, and 5 pm to 9 pm), email, or online form. Unfortunately, my exploratory email received no response. If you have to resort to self-support, the knowledge base might not be much use unless you speak Persian since it doesn’t translate too well into English.
