Hosting Belgie is a web hosting company based in Belgium. The hosting firm specializes in the provisioning of shared web hosting, VPS servers, dedicated servers, domain name registration services, and colocation services. Its main target is business enterprises in Belgium and beyond. Currently, the hosting vendor is listed among the top 20 largest web hosting companies in Belgium with a market share of 0.30%.
The Hosting Belgie website is only available in Dutch, and while some parts can easily be translated, others remain unchanged which might be an issue for non-Dutch speakers.

Hosting Belgie website servers are housed in the Zaventem data center in Belgium. The data center is ISO27001 certified, SAS70 compliant, and equipped with Tier III data center facilities. Tier III certified data centers are concurrently maintainable and are built with redundant server systems, network links, storage, and other IT components providing fast and secure hosting environments.
Hosting Belgie delivers both managed and unmanaged VPS servers and you can choose the plan best suited to your business. Users can also choose from different OS platforms, including either Windows or Linux distributions.
Hosting Belgie shared web hosting plans are offered in five levels: Linux Plus 100 MB, Linux Pro 300 MB, Linux Mega 500 MB, Linux Business Plus 1 GB, and Linux Business Extra 2 GB. Depending on your preferred plan, you get anywhere between 100MB to 2GB disk space and 3GB-15GB monthly bandwidth.
At all account levels, the vendor provides cPanel control panel with an easy-to-use interface for easier running and management of its client’s servers. The hosting firm also performs automatic backup services, to make sure that its customers’ data is safe and secure in the event that disaster strikes.
Pricing and Support
Hosting Belgie web hosting solutions are not the cheapest in the market, and when you consider other add-on features such as domain name, SSL certificates, and website builders that are offered at a fee, then the cost could be considered extremely high.
Additionally, although the plans are advertised with monthly billing cycles, customers are required to commit to a minimum contract of one year. Its prices are listed in euros and U.S dollars.
The hosting firm does not have a money-back guarantee policy. All the same, its hosting systems come with a 99.9% uptime guarantee.
Customers can contact Hosting Belgie’s support desk via telephone, email, or ticketing system. The technical support staff is available 24/7 and seems well versed to deal with most of their clients’ hosting related issues. That said, I did not come across any live chat support.
The Hosting Belgie website has a scant knowledge base.
