Czech hosting provider Gigaweb.cz was founded in 2001 under the CzechNET CZ umbrella. Besides web design and domain registration services, Gigaweb.cz sells Linux and Windows shared hosting, VPS, and dedicated servers.
Gigaweb.cz has an old-fashioned Czech-language website with a copyright notice dated 2013 and with its most recent news item dated March 2015.
Features and Ease of Use
Gigaweb.cz’s servers are operated by its CzechNET CZ parent, which uses technologies such as Supermicro servers (with Intel Xeon and AMD Opteron processors) connected to a 1Gbps network.
Digging deeper into the three (of each) Linux and Windows shared hosting subscriptions, you can expect to find the following core features:
- PHP support
- MySQL support
- Up to unlimited mailboxes
- FTP access
- Antivirus and anti-spam for emails
- Up to 20 GB disk space
- Regular backups
The Linux shared hosting plans come at startWEB (1 GB disk space), mediumWEB (10 GB disk space), and gigaWEB (20 GB disk space) levels. The Windows shared hosting plans are aspWEB, asp.netWEB, and gigaWEB, and they include 1 GB to 20 GB storage. When you sign up for one of the higher packages, you get a free SSL certificate and a free domain.
The AWStats and Google Analytics tools help you keep track of your web statistics, including hits, visitors, pages, hours, search engines, and more.
Although Gigaweb.cz throws in some nice features, its offerings are pretty bare-bones compared with other providers, so it’s safe to say that this vendor is most suitable for beginners and small website owners.
Pricing and Support
Given its limited features and low webspace, Gigaweb.cz isn’t the cheapest host in the Czech market. The cost can also increase due to paid add-ons. On the plus side, you can get a two-week to four-week free trial, depending on the plan you pick.
Although the contact channels include email, contact form, and telephone, I failed to elicit any response via email or ticket submission. There are no self-support resources as far as I can see.
