Gigaplanet is a popular Slovenian hosting provider that offers high-quality hosting at low prices. I'd have more confidence about committing to a purchase if I'd received a pre-sales support response.

Overview

Gigaplanet

Since starting its journey in 2006, Slovenian host Gigaplanet has provided a diverse range of clients with comprehensive hosting solutions. Its website supports the Slovenian language.

Features and Ease of Use

Gigaplanet

Gigaplanet offers eight shared hosting packages (four each for cPanel and DirectAdmin), three VPS packages, and two reseller packages. All the shared hosting packages provide you with:

  • 99.9% availability
  • 500 MB to 10 GB storage space
  • Unlimited data transfer
  • 1 to 10 hosted domains
  • 1 to unlimited email addresses
  • 1 to 30 MySQL databases
  • 5 to unlimited FTP accounts
  • CGI, PHP, Perl, and Image Magick
  • DNS management
  • POP3, SMTP, IMAP, webmail
  • Antivirus and SpamAssassin
  • Backups

Hosting accounts are managed via the lightweight DirectAdmin control panel, and the Installatron one-click installer helps you install a wide range of popular applications for blogging (e.g., WordPress), e-commerce (e.g., Zen Cart), and many more purposes.

At the other end of the expertise spectrum, the ionCube Loader encrypts your PHP code so that it can’t be copied or modified. And Cron jobs allow you to schedule scripts to run regularly, so you don’t have to execute them manually every time.

RAID 10 uses disk duplication to protect you from potential data disasters.

Pricing and Support

Gigaplanet’s shared hosting packages are incredibly cheap, and you can pay for them in euros (only) by bank transfer or PayPal. Billing cycles range from monthly to triennial, with discounts for all terms longer than a month. Since not all billing cycles are available for all plans, you need to check the situation for the plan you pick.

While you should be able to contact the customer support team via telephone, ticket, email, or online contact form, my contact form submission received no reply. For self-support, there is an acceptable (but not exceptional) knowledge base:
