Hualma is an Italian web hosting company that offers a range of solutions, including shared hosting, WordPress hosting, VPS (virtual private server), and dedicated servers. Additionally, it provides domain registrations services. Hualma’s main office is in Naples, Italy, and its target audience is the Italian market, as it actively promotes the Italian localization feature.
The website is informative and easy to navigate. However, it’s entirely in Italian and all prices are displayed in euros.
Features and Ease of Use
Hualma offers shared hosting for both Linux and Windows. Take a look at some notable Linux shared hosting features:
- SSD storage
- 99% uptime guarantee
- Unlimited traffic
- MYSQL database
- Free SSL certificate
- PHP support
- One hosted website
- Daily backups
- One-click software installer
Hualma’s data center is in Naples, Italy. The brand uses this as a selling point because it offers solutions to Italians in search of a hosting provider with a local data center.
The shared Linux hosting plans are Linux Basic, Linux Advanced, and Linux Premium. The only significant difference between the plans is the amount of storage. Basic offers 10 GB SSD storage, Advanced provides 20 GB, and Premium offers 30 GB. All plans come with a free domain name. The Windows hosting plans are similarly designed.
Hualma also offers three Professional shared hosting packages (Pro Basic, Pro Advanced, and Pro Premium). While they’re almost identical to the Linux hosting plans, the main difference (other than pricing) is that you can manage between two and ten domain names per account.
There is only one WordPress hosting plan, and it offers 10 GB SSD disk space and unlimited traffic. The brand’s dedicated server plans are divided into three options, and you can choose between Intel or Dell servers.
You can transfer existing websites for free or register a new one. The suffix options available for a free domain name are .it, .com, .net, .org, .biz, and .info.
Pricing and Support
Hualma plans are moderately priced, however, there is no flexibility with the billing cycle. Customers can only pay yearly. Standard payment options are supported, including all major credit/debit cards and PayPal.
Hualma offers a 30-day money-back guarantee, minus the cost of a domain name.
You can expect 24/7 customer support via email and ticket, but the live chat is only available from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. (Italy time).
I sent an email query to this vendor and received a response in less than 10 minutes.
There is also a very basic knowledge base.
