Give It Web hosting caters to the low-range hosting market. If your needs are in the high-level range: an international E-commerce high-traffic website, your needs won’t be met with this company’s hosting. It offers shared web hosting that’s suitable for small to medium-sized businesses.
It also offers domain registration. Its website is in English only and its servers are located in Texas, United States.
Features and Ease of Use
Give It Web offers simple web hosting with the basic features that many websites need like storage space and bandwidth. There are only a few premium tools for enhanced performance and security.
The web hosting is offered in three plans that offer the following features and benefits:
- 99.9% uptime SLA
- Free domain registration
- Free SSL
- Unlimited websites to each account
- Anywhere from 6GB to 30GB storage space
Give It Web guarantees an uptime of 99.9% with a downtime warranty. If you record an uptime of less than the guaranteed percentage, you’ll get a credit equivalent to one day of service per sixty minutes of downtime. The maximum credit given is equal to one month of service.
It uses Solid-State Disks (SSD) on the servers. You’ll get quicker access time and response time to your website scripts. This company provides security against hackers and viruses at the server level.
Give It Web supports PHP based applications and provides a one-click installer that you can use to install WordPress, Joomla!, Drupal, and Magento easily and quickly from your hosting dashboard. It also offers a website builder with customizable templates that takes most of the hard work out of website designing.
Pricing and Support
Give It Web doesn’t offer the lowest prices in the market, but at the same time, it isn’t extremely expensive. Web hosting is reasonably priced here with this provider, and you can pay with a credit card.
Subscriptions offered are for a month, three months, six months, 12 months, 24 months, and 36 months. If you choose the subscriptions plan of 12 months or higher, you’ll get a free domain.
I like that it provides a free SSL certificate. With Google’s attention on SSL as one factor for ranking and showing website security, it’s essential to have it, and getting it free it an added benefit.
Many people like to test drive a web host before committing money. Unfortunately, you don’t get a free trial from this provider. However, if you pay and aren’t satisfied with the service, you can get a full refund if you request it within 14 days after payment.
For customer support, it doesn’t have any tutorials, so self-support through its help section is not an option. You can either Google for help or contact the customer support team. You can reach Give It Web support agents through ticket and live chat.
I tried the live chat but unfortunately, it isn’t 24/7, so I had to submit a ticket and received a reply from an agent not too long after.
