Website hosting company IISNet-Networks was founded in 2003. It has offices in the U.S.A. and the U.K. as well as operations in multiple worldwide data centers. This host’s old-fashioned website is available in English.
Features and Ease of Use
IISNet-Networks offers domain name services and a wide range of hosting plans that include the following features:
- 99.95% uptime guarantee
- Weekly automatic backups (with daily available as an optional extra)
- Free domain registration with some plans
- Up to five add-on domains
- Free SSL certificates with some plans
- Up to 50,000 MB disk space
- Up to 20 GB monthly bandwidth
- cPanel control panel
You can choose to have your website hosted in one of many worldwide data centers: in Europe, the United States, or Canada. You might, for example, choose the location closest to your customer base.
While this company offers to build you a three-page website for free, this will likely be a loss leader (to get you hooked in), and I do wonder if the end result will be as old-fashioned as the vendor’s own website.
These days, you would expect your web host to assure uptime of greater than 99.9%, so its good to see that IISNet-Networks provides a higher 99.95% uptime guarantee.
Pricing and Support
IISNet-Networks’ hosting prices are pretty high, even for the free SLL, free domain name, and (don’t forget) the three-page website you get. There are plenty of competitors these days that will undercut this company.
At the checkout, you can choose to be billed on one-month or one-year terms. It’s good that there is a discount for an annual commitment, and — even better — the 30-day money-back guarantee should get you out early if you change your mind.
More support resources may be available to logged-in customers, but as a pre-sales prospect customer, my options were limited to email and a knowledge base. My exploratory email was never answered, but the knowledge base is surprisingly well populated:
