Founded in 2004, Gazduire Web offers web hosting, Virtual Private Servers (VPS), reseller hosting, and colocation services from its offices in Romania. Its servers are located in a data center in Bucharest, Romania and the company’s website is available in Romanian only.
Features and Ease of Use
Gazduire Web offers four web hosting plans: Starter SSD, Essential SSD, Professional SSD, and Ecommerce SSD. These plans offer different levels of storage, CPU, and RAM resources. Customers on them enjoy the following:
- 99.9% uptime SLA
- Daily automatic backups
- Free AutoSSL on top two plans
- Free .ro and .com domains on some of the plans
- Anywhere from three to unlimited hosted domains
- Unlimited traffic
DDoS is annoying because most of the time, the attackers just want to bring down the website for the sake of it, not stealing data or gaining anything, especially for small websites. Still, DDoS can cause your website to go offline and affect the potential customers that want to get through to you. Gazduire Web provides DDoS protection that will work for most small to medium websites.
Gazduire Web offers enough RAM for small to medium websites. Its lowest plan comes with 512MB dedicated RAM which can handle more than five simple WordPress websites.
The company provides cPanel for shared hosting customers, and it comes with RvSiteBuilder that has a drag-and-drop tool to make designing your website fun and easy. Gazduire Web also provides the Softaculous plugin in cPanel. You can use that to install CMSes like WordPress automatically.
If you’re more into coding yourself, the company supports PHP. It provides a PHP selector so that you can choose the version of PHP that you want per website. You can program your website with that and design it with HTML and CSS.
Pricing and Support
Gazduire Web’s four hosting plans all offer the same introductory prices, which are low. But keep in mind that these rates only apply to your first hosting term. At renewal, they increase significantly, but not so much so that it becomes too expensive for the features that are offered with them.
Subscription periods are one month, three months, six months, then 12 months and higher. A free .com domain only comes with the top plan. You get a .ro domain from the second-highest plan, but the other two plans provide no free domain. It’s the same thing with an SSL certificate – you only get it on the top two plans.
Gazduire Web offers special deals and offers like 15-day free hosting on order and an extra 30 days for referring a friend. That said, on hosting payments, every web hosting customer is entitled to a 30-day money-back guarantee on the first payment.
If you plan on hosting websites with lots of traffic or multiple websites, or you’re a reseller, you can check out the reasonably priced VPS and reseller plans (respectively).
