As its name suggests, EVS Portugal is a proudly Portuguese hosting provider that primarily caters to the needs of its local (Portuguese) customers. I'd feel better about this host if I'd been able to summon a pre-sales support response.

Overview

EVS Portugal

As its name suggests, EVS Portugal is a Portuguese hosting provider. Its Portuguese-language website sells top-quality web hosting services primarily to Portuguese individuals and companies. To date, EVS Portugal has registered around 1,000 domain names and hosted close to 1,500 customer websites.

Features and Ease of Use

Unsurprisingly, the cPanel shared hosting includes the cPanel control panel that lets you manage all aspects of your hosting, including files, databases, and email accounts. Other available features include:

  • Multiple PHP versions
  • MySQL databases
  • Softaculous one-click installer for 400+ apps
  • Unlimited traffic
  • Unlimited email accounts
  • Additional domains
  • Free SSL certificates
  • Private IP addresses

If you’re not comfortable creating your website yourself, you can take advantage of the extra-cost but low-cost website building services. And once your website is up-and-running, your data can be safeguarded by the daily and monthly backups.

Hosted websites sit on green servers (which use less energy) with SSD storage (which is faster and more reliable than HDD storage) in RAID 10 configuration (to guard against disk data disasters).

Pricing and Support

EVS Portugal’s web hosting solutions are not the cheapest you’ll find for the limited features (but high specs) on offer, but you will enjoy fast activation after payment. Plans can be purchased in euros or U.S. dollars on monthly or annual billing cycles. There are no refunds as far as I know, but the apparent 100% uptime guarantee sounds pretty impressive.

The customer support desk can be contacted by telephone, ticket, or email (but not live chat) during working hours on weekdays. Unfortunately, my exploratory email went unanswered. Fortunately, the knowledge base might answer a few of your pre-sales support questions:
