Eticoweb provides a one-click installer, and supports PHP and low to high storage on its plans but at a high cost for most plans. The company’s servers are in Milan, Italy.

Overview

Eticoweb

Founded in 2013, Eticoweb was born out of the desire to create what it feels is ethical in hosting. It supports individuals, for-profit, and non-profit organizations. The company’s servers are located in Milan, Italy and its website is available in Italian only.

Features and Ease of Use

Eticoweb offers shared hosting, reseller hosting, cloud servers, and colocation. Its shared hosting is divided into three categories; Economical, Professional, and Business with plans that should work for small and medium-sized businesses. The business plan is great especially for businesses that need lots of storage space.

These are the provided features:

  • 99.9% uptime
  • Daily/ Weekly automatic backups
  • Anywhere from 1GB to 1TB storage space
  • Up to unlimited traffic

Keep in mind that the automatic backups are not provided to every web hosting customer. Only those under the Professional and Business hosting plans get backups; weekly for Professional hosting users and daily for business hosting users.

You’ll have to take manual backups, but if you’re not on the Business plans, you’re not allowed to use cron, so you can’t even use that to automate the backups.

Web hosting customers can host more than one website on one plan. However, if you’re not on the ETH 100 (Professional hosting) and above, you’ll have to pay a set amount. For those on the plans that allow it for free, you can host 10, 20, 50, or 100 websites before you’re required to pay like everyone else.

Eticoweb provides some pre-installed applications, including WordPress, Drupal, Joomla!, and Prestashop in the control panel. All you have to do is click on the exact application that you want and it will be configured on your domain automatically. Unfortunately, there’s no website builder, so if you don’t want to use an application, you’ll have to write your own HTML.

For programming, it supports PHP and Perl but that’s about it. If your plan is to code with Python, you’ll have to look elsewhere.

Eticoweb provides Plesk as a control panel. This management panel is easy to use, even for beginners. You can easily manage your domains, email accounts, databases, and monitor statistics on it.

Pricing and Support

Eticoweb offers high prices for the features that it provides, especially in the Professional Hosting plans.

Also, it doesn’t offer one-month subscriptions. Instead, you’ll have to pay for one year if you want to use its web hosting services. To make it even worse, the company doesn’t provide a money-back guarantee, so having to pay such expensive prices for a long term with no refund guarantee is a huge risk.

Customer support is available on Monday to Friday, from 9:30 AM to 12:30 PM and from 2:30 PM to 6:30 PM. You can call, send an email, or use Skype to chat with an agent. I sent an email and received a response in less than thirty minutes.

Bottom line on Eticoweb

If you’re in the market for a web hosting company in Italy, you can check out Eticoweb. However, be aware that the company’s prices aren’t the best; you’ll get better prices elsewhere. Also, its subscription periods are long, yet it doesn’t provide a money-back guarantee. Nevertheless, it still has some positive aspects like being beginner-friendly for those that want to use a CMS.

Pros

  • One-click application installer
  • Plesk control panel provided
  • Supports PHP programming
  • Phone and Skype support

Cons

  • No money-back guarantee
  • Doesn’t offer monthly shared hosting
