IFW Web Studio boasts of over 15 years of hosting experience, but its 1000+ clients (that it has powered as stated on its website) is not all that great given how long it has been in operations.
The hosting company is based in Udaipur, Rajasthan, India, and although it offers web hosting packages, its auxiliary services such as digital marketing, web design and development, and branding services seem to dominate among its offerings.
Features and Ease of Use
IFW Web Studio web hosting services (Windows shared web hosting and reseller hosting) incorporate the following standard features:
- Shared IP addresses included
- MySQL, MSSQL databases
- FTP and email accounts
- Free setups
- DotNetPanel control panel
IFW Web Studio shared locations are in the U.S. and its shared web hosting solutions are divided into 6 packages: IFW-Startup Plan, IFW1, IFW2, IFW3, IFW4, and IFW5. The IFW–Startup Plan is suitable for individual blogs and it comes with only 50MB monthly bandwidth, 1 email account, and 1 domain name hosting.
If the resources of IFW-Starter Plan don’t seem enough for your business, you can always upgrade to the plan that suits your business needs. With that in mind, the advanced plan, IFW5, includes 10GB monthly bandwidth, supports 10 domain names and 10 email accounts.
The vendor’s web hosting solutions are powered by Windows OS platforms and while it comes with support for ASP.Net 4.x and PHP versions 4.x, these software versions seem outdated given that we have new and improved versions with faster speeds and better performance.
It backups up its customer’s website databases but has only stated the backup offerings in passing.
Pricing and Support
IFW Web Studio prices its plans on an annual basis but they are cheaper than most vendors in the market. However, unlike its other services with direct checkout processes, to purchase the web hosting solutions, you would have to contact the company for directives.
All the prices are listed in Indian rupees and you are charged an additional 18% tax. Unfortunately, there is no uptime guarantee nor does the vendor offer a money-back guarantee.
The support services are available via telephone or email. Moreover, users can chat with them online through Messenger, Hangout, and WhatsApp. Alternatively, customers can request a callback, whereby you leave a message and your contact details and its expert team will contact you back.
There is a blogging area on its website, although it does not seem to include web hosting articles or tutorials.
