Reviews and expert opinion IISNet-Networks

IISNet-Networks has been around for a while, and its website shows it. While its hosting plans look perfectly plausible, the high prices and limited support options don't compare well with more modern competitors.

Overview

IISNet-NetworksIf you are in a hurry, and just want the bottom line: for the same price as IISNet-Networks you can get much better servers with 24/7 support with Hostinger, so why even bother?!

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:

Bottom line on IISNet-Networks

IISNet-Networks sells some feature-packed plans from an old-fashioned website. Its prices also seem stuck in the past, since there are many more competitive hosts these days. While the knowledge base looks promising, I couldn’t summon any pre-sales support.

Before you make a decision, we highly recommend you check out some alternative hosting companies, which we highly recommend.

Pros

  • Seasoned provider
  • Plans include a free three-page website
  • Several server locations
  • cPanel control panel and one-click installer

Cons

  • Expensive plans
  • No pre-sales support response
