For over ten years, Flexi has been offering web hosting services using its servers that are located in Portugal. This company has acquired more than 3,000 customers in 37 countries. It has offices in Portugal and France, and its website is available in Portuguese and English.
Features and Ease of Use
Flexi offers two web hosting plans, Linux SSD Pro and Hosting My Way. They come with fantastic features for businesses and individuals. These are some of the provided features:
- Minimum of 99% uptime
- Daily automatic backups
- Free SSL certificate
- Anywhere from 50GB storage
- From one to unlimited add-on domains
Flexi’s 99% uptime guarantee covers the whole network. Compensation is provided to customers as a refund equal to one hour of hosting fee for four hours of downtime. The downtime is based on the databases, email, FTP, SSH, and Webmail being down at the same time due to its system. Be aware, though, that it only provides refunds calculated from when you report the downtime and not when it actually started.
On a more positive note, it provides a solid Linux distribution – CloudLinux. This operating system is stable and one of the best for shared hosting servers. It places each customer in a light-weight virtualized system ensuring that vulnerabilities don’t spread easily and over-usage of resources is prevented.
If you’re affected by malware, Flexi promises speedy identification of the exact problem and what is affected as well as removing the malware from your server.
The company provides cPanel. As such, managing your hosting resources will be easy. You can code and upload files through cPanel’s file manager or an FTP client. There’s also GIT support. Alternatively, you can use a CMS.
One feature that makes that process seamless is Installatron. With Flexi, you get the Installatron applications installer. Without having to deal with core files, database connections, and anything else, you can choose the application/CMS that you want to use and in a few clicks, it’ll be installed on your account.
After your development, if you’re looking to optimize your website and have it delivered over a global network, Cloudflare is a great choice and for simple websites, you can use the Cloudflare free plan and enjoy it. With Flexi, you can easily connect your website to Cloudflare in just a few minutes.
Pricing and Support
Flexi’s Hosting My Way plan is quite cheap for the features that it provides and the best part of it is that you can customize the features that you want. You can choose your disk space, traffic, email accounts, MySQL databases, FTP accounts, subdomains, add-on domains, and mailing lists. Also, if you want dedicated IP addresses, SSD, and faster support, it offers these options as well. You’ll end up paying only for the features that you need.
Its other plan isn’t too expensive, either, and on both, you can pay for one month at a time. However, if you choose to pay for a year, you can get as much as a 50% discount. Flexi accepts payments through PayPal, Stripe, Cryptocurrency, and ATM payment.
Flexi provides support through phone, ticketing system, and live chat. In my experience with the live chat, the agent answered all of my questions and was fast. It also has documentation and an online community.
