Israeli host DRP offers a wide range of Windows and Linux hosting solutions, but its prices are high, and its pre-sales support seems to be poor.

Overview

DRP

Israeli web hosting company DRP was founded in 2005. Today, it offers a wide range of Linux and Windows hosting solutions (including shared hosting), WordPress hosting, reseller hosting, VPS hosting, dedicated servers, domain registration, SSL certificates, and website design/development.

This vendor’s website is in Hebrew, and all prices are presented in Israeli new shekels.

Features and Ease of Use

DRP offers Linux and Windows shared hosting, each with four price plans that vary in terms of storage and databases, but with the Linux plans providing slightly more storage capacity than the Windows plans.

Regardless of operating system, what the plans have in common is:

  • Unlimited bandwidth
  • Unlimited domains
  • Unlimited FTP accounts
  • Free domain
  • SSL support (certificates sold separately)
  • PHP support
  • Control panel
  • Daily backups

When it comes to control panels, I usually prefer cPanel, but the provided Plesk (for Windows) and DirectAdmin (for Linux) control panels do pretty much the same job of letting you manage your FTP accounts, email accounts, website files, databases, domains, backup intervals, and more. Plesk is more user-friendly than DirectAdmin, and it includes an application installer for additional programs such as WordPress, so it’s a shame this isn’t the control panel of choice for the Linux hosting plans. 

Pricing and Support

DRP’s prices are quite high for the features on offer, but the Windows and Linux plans are priced the same (which is unusual). You can choose to be billed monthly, semi-annually, or annually, and pay via PayPal, credit/debit card, phone credit, bank transfer, or Bitcoin. There is no clear refund policy or a money-back guarantee as far as I know.

You should be able to contact this host via telephone, ticket, or email, but my ticket and email approaches went unanswered. This provider’s blog contains pretty generic I.T. industry new items, and there are no postings after 2016:

Bottom line on DRP

DRP offers a good range of hosting solutions with decent features, but not enough to justify the prices. There is plenty of room for improvement in pre-sales support because my approaches went unanswered.

Pros

  • Free domain
  • Windows and Linux support
  • Daily backups
  • SSL support

Cons

  • Unresponsive pre-sales support
  • No money-back guarantee
