Features and Ease of Use
FUTRIS offers two types of shared hosting packages: Private and Business. Both types are further subdivided into the Start, Medium, and Extended tiers that differ in terms of storage space, domains, number of mailboxes, and MySQL databases.
Private plans are best suited to individuals and small businesses. They come with one domain, 1 GB to 5 GB disk space, unlimited data transfer, 1 to 25 mailboxes, free SSL encryption, zero or one MySQL database, and processing of the contract in line with DSGVO (or GDPR) regulations.
Business plans are more suitable for online shops and large websites that need to handle unlimited traffic and have higher demands for storage space and email accounts.
Some of the notable features of the FUTRIS hosting plans are
- Full root access
- Spam filter
- Virus scanner
- Daily backups
- Email autoresponder
- Plesk and Confixx web interfaces
FUTRIS houses its own servers in its partners’ state-of-the-art data centers. These servers are powered by modern multi-core processors and benefit from external backups plus RAID hard disks with an intelligent early warning system.
Pricing and Support
FUTRIS offers affordable hosting plans that include a one-time setup fee, and the plans are payable monthly in euros via bank transfer or direct debit. You get SSL encryption for free.
You can easily upgrade or downgrade your plan by contacting the company in writing. While new customers get a 30-day money-back guarantee, existing customers have 14 days to request a refund in writing.
You can reach out to the FUTRIS support staff by phone, fax, email, or an online contact form. The alternative live chat was unavailable when I wanted to try it, and the exploratory email I sent remained unanswered.
FUTRIS has a dedicated support area for “fast and competent help,” which might help you answer your own questions about email, domains, and web hosting:
