The eukwebhost.com website represents a web hosting brand of Midlands Online Media. Judging from the “announcements” feed on its WHMCS-powered client section, it may also have been known as Online Hosters as recently as 2008.
The website is in English, and judging from its name plus the two flags at the bottom of its website, this provider focuses mainly on the U.K. and European markets.
Features and Ease of Use
This host sells shared hosting, domain names, website design services, and website software. The shared hosting plans come with the following core features:
- 99% uptime guarantee
- Backup wizard
- Domain registration available
- Up to 10 hosted domains
- SSL certificates available
- Up to 5 GB web space
- Up to 10 GB bandwidth
The Linux hosting plans are managed using the cPanel control panel, which — among other things — allows you to install a CMS (such as WordPress, Joomla, or Drupal) or e-commerce system (e.g., PrestaShop, ZenCart, or Magento). You also get FTP accounts and some programming support for PHP, MySQL, and phpMyAdmin. Therefore, all the bases are covered, but there is nothing groundbreaking.
Backups are not automatic, so it is your responsibility to take care of your own data. However, a backup wizard is provided for this purpose.
When it comes to uptime, the 99% uptime guarantee is nice but nothing to get excited about since it is below the industry average.
Pricing and Support
For what looks like a mediocre set of features, the prices seem high. You can purchase plans on one, three, or twelve-month terms, with a 28-day money-back guarantee (excludes domain registration cost) to get you out early if you’re not entirely happy. At the checkout, you can purchase a readymade website or e-commerce store for a one-off fee.
Unless you log in as a customer, your support options are limited to ticket submission. For self-support, the small knowledge base contains about 30 entries:
