Hetzner Online is a German web hosting provider, with data centers primarily located within Germany. It is popular in its home country, but there is a reason why Hetzner didn’t advance globally like Mercedes Bentz.
While this review focuses on both the South African branch of the company as well as the German branch, it’s interesting to note that the plans draw a distinction between South Africa and Germany when it comes to resource limits. That’s because as far as I can tell, the two locations function mostly autonomously.
Hetzner sells a range of hosting packages from shared hosting and self-managed servers to colocation and dedicated server rental. There’s even a custom hosting plan that includes a dedicated account manager and technical team. The website is available in English only.
