Founded in 2002, Argentina-based web hosting provider DonWeb is part of the Web.com Group. From an Argentinian data center, it offers website hosting, domain registration, SSL certificates, email hosting, and web design services.
The DonWeb website is available in Spanish, English, and Portuguese, although the language options appear to be buggy and incomplete.
Features and Ease of Use
DonWeb offers shared website hosting, cloud hosting, dedicated server hosting, reseller hosting, and WordPress-optimized hosting. The shared hosting plans include a free domain, email, access to a website builder, and unlimited SSD storage. The WordPress hosting plan includes unlimited disk space, bandwidth, email, and MySQL databases, but no free domain.
Customers wanting higher performance hosting can opt for the SSD Cloud Server Hosting that is available with Windows or Linux operating systems and is customizable in terms of vCPUs, RAM, and SSD storage.
Some of the standard hosting features are:
- Unlimited SSD storage
- 99.99% uptime guarantee
- 24/7 customer support
- Website backups
- Free website migration
- Linux or Windows
- 30-day money-back guarantee
For an extra monthly fee on each hosted website, DonWeb offers a CDN that can boost page loading speeds as well as improving your standing with search engines. The CDN includes 3 GB of storage and 10 GB of monthly transfer, and it is aimed primarily at Latin American, U.S., and European markets.
You don’t get free SSL with DonWeb, but it does sell SSL certificates annually and biennially from major providers including RapidSSL, Thawte, RapidSSL, and GeoTrust.
Pricing and Support
DonWeb’s shared website hosting prices are comparable with international providers. You get features like unlimited SSD storage and a 99.99% server uptime guarantee for the cost of a fast food meal per month, which is right in the middle of what other Argentinian hosts will offer you.
Shared website hosting can be bought on 1-year, 2-year, 5-year, and 10-year term lengths, with no discounts for longer terms. WordPress hosting can also be bought on a monthly basis, with discounts for longer commitments.
Support is advertised as 24/7 via telephone, contact form, Skype, and live chat. I received a reply the following day when I reached out for pre-sales support outside of office hours. Apart from a Spanish set of FAQs, self-support resources seem to be somewhat limited unless you log in.
