Founded in 2006, HDWEBPROVIDER is one of the world’s top web hosting providers. They manage a client portfolio of over 145,000 websites and 175,000 domains. A partnership with Liquid Web places their servers in four data centers around the world. Headquartered in the United States, and with a branch in Amsterdam, they also have some international agents and offices in Europe, Asia, North America, and South America. Their 24/7 support staff helps both beginners and professionals alike to set up their hosting space and grow their business. Support is provided in English, Spanish, Portuguese, and Dutch, but their website appears to be only in English.
Features and Ease of Use
HDWEBPROVIDER’s hosting services are all cloud-based. They include shared web hosting, managed WordPress hosting, dedicated servers, and reseller hosting. Unlike most hosting providers, they give their customers only one option on the shared and managed WordPress plans. Despite the lack of many choices, both plans are particularly popular because they allow customers to grow without having to upgrade within a shared space. There’s no limit on most of the resources, and as standard the features include:
- 99.9% uptime guarantee
- Unlimited storage
- Unlimited bandwidth
- Unlimited addon domains
- Automatic backups every Sunday
- Free SSL certificates
The hosting plans are great for developers, agencies, and beginners. Developers get an array of programming tools including CGI, Fast CGI, PHP 7, Ruby on Rails, Perl, Python, MariaDB, and OpenSSL. Beginners can execute either Softaculous or Fantastico installer scripts with just a few clicks: WordPress, Drupal, Joomla, phpBB, and more. Anyone can create a website by choosing from a wide selection of themes.
Another plus for businesses is the G Suite integration that allows access to Gmail, Google Docs, Analytics, Drive and other Google products.
For a hardware perspective, HDWEBPROVIDER’s servers are fine-tuned for security, performance, and reliability. They use a RAID 10 drive array for instant mirroring and fast drive access.
Pricing and Support
HDWEBPROVIDER’s prices are comparable with other providers. However, for the resources they offer, they are actually cheaper than the industry average. One plan that deserves particular attention is the low-priced WordPress plan which – despite the low price point – offers excellent functionality, a developer toolkit, and automatic updates.
You don’t get a free domain with this provider, but they do give you a free SSL certificate with the shared hosting plans. You can also pay for one.
You can purchase a 3, 6, 12, or 24-month plan, and there is a 30-day money-back guarantee that should make it easier for you to sign up to one of the longer terms. Their 99.9% uptime guarantee means that you receive a one month credit if suffer 0.1% downtime during any month. Oh, and website transfer is free.
You can connect with one of HDWEBPROVIDER’s support representatives at any time via email or support ticket. In my experience, they respond rapidly with relevant solutions. In practice, most issues can be addressed with self-support because they have one of the most comprehensive knowledge bases I have seen.
