Founded in Edinburgh, Scotland in the year 2000, IFDNRG is a well-established company dedicated to providing a wide range of fast, high-quality web and video hosting solutions. This company boasts an impressive client base of brands including Renault, EDF Energy, Aviva, Scottish Cup Final, Ministry of Defence, Mothercare, and more.
Features and Ease of Use
IFDNRG’s wholly owned and managed servers are housed in Iomart’s Tier 4 data center in Maidenhead, England. IFDNRG provides several shared and reseller hosting plans (with 0% downtime) that are suitable for personal websites as well as large businesses. The shared hosting features include:
- 10 GB to 125 GB disk space
- 50 GB to 500 GB bandwidth
- 10 GB to 125 GB IMAP
- Free antispam/antivirus protection
- FreeBSD OS
- Apache web server
- Hardened PHP
- Free SSL
One of IFDNRG’s core offerings is video streaming hosting. It has served more than twenty million streams since its launch, for popular brands and even weddings. The company offers multi-platform streaming, global bandwidth provision, U.K. peering, and more.
Pricing and Support
IFDNRG’s four shared hosting plans – Personal, Small Business, Business, and Reseller – are provided at average prices and are definitely not the cheapest on the market. While these plans share many features, they differ in terms of storage capacity, the number of hosted domains and emails, and bandwidth. You can pay for your plan by credit card or bank transfer, but all fees are non-refundable, and there is no money-back guarantee.
Although IFDNRG’s website provides a lot of information (confusing at times) to advertise its products, it doesn’t get high points for customer support. There is no knowledge base for self-support and no live chat for one-to-one interactive support. While you can email, submit a support ticket, or call the company, my exploratory email was still awaiting a response after five days.
