Slovenian web hosting company, Domovanje, has been serving customers since 1999 and is the largest provider in its region. It specializes in shared and VPS hosting as well as domain registration. The website is in Slovenian and English, however the knowledge base is in Slovenian only. Its servers are located in the capital city of Ljubljana, Slovenia.
Features and Ease of Use
Domovanje provides a well-rounded array of web hosting packages for novices all the way up to expert customers. It offers shared, VPS, and Windows Cloud Server hosting plans. Shared plans start small and are meant for simple static websites with email. More expensive plans add features and data capacity and allow for WordPress hosting and online stores with shopping carts and checkout. Basic standard features include:
- SSD storage
- Unlimited space and traffic
- Unlimited email accounts
- Free SSL certificates
- 99.9% uptime
- 60-day money-back guarantee
- WordPress hosting
WordPress users will appreciate the one-click software installer. Anti-spam protection is also included with all plans, as are free SSL certificates (except for Windows server plans). If you were hosting with another provider previously, Domovanje will transfer your data for free.
As stated above, the entry-level “Post-office box” shared hosting plan is a starter option that has limited features and data allowance. But, the next option up really has more value for not much increase in price. With this level, bandwidth and storage increase to unlimited, as well as unlimited email accounts and unlimited MySQL databases. Additionally, this plan (and higher) come packaged with over 200 applications at your disposal and a free credit towards Google ads.
In terms of building a website with a CMS like WordPress, the plan you choose with Domovanje will determine if that’s possible. You won’t be able to host a CMS on the lowest priced shared plan at all. Stepping up to the next two levels will allow WordPress and Joomla. But, you’ll need to upgrade to the “Store” plan if you want to run a Magento or PrestaShop online store.
Pricing and support
Pricing for Domovanje is very competitive and comparable with the lowest priced major Slovenian, and European web hosts. Shared plans cost less than a cup of coffee and for that price, come loaded with impressive standard features such as SSD, free SSL certificates, a 60-day money-back guarantee, and more.
Plan payment options include every month, six months, 12 months, or multi-year. The 60-day guarantee is higher than average and Domovanje gets bonus points for that.
Customer support is available from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. via telephone and email. And while that may not be 24/7, my email to support was responded to within about 15 minutes during Slovenian business hours, which is pretty good. Web hosting customers will appreciate snappy customer support like this.
