According to its website, Mexican company Imagen Web Hoy (“Web Image Today” in English) brings more than 25 years of experience to the table. Today, it provides small and large companies with digital marketing solutions, web design, web development, domain name registration, SSL certificates, cloud VPS, and shared web hosting services.
This host serves worldwide clients from a Mexican data center, and it promotes itself via a Spanish-language website.
Features and Ease of Use
Imagen Web Hoy’s shared hosting plans are packaged for individuals (personal), SMEs, and larger businesses, and they include these features:
- Free SSL certificates
- Unlimited bandwidth
- From 17 GB to 200 GB disk space
- From three to 20 add-on domains
- Free domain registration
Each package provides unlimited email addresses, and from five to unlimited parked domains and MySQL databases.
The included cPanel control panel lets you upload and manage your website files through a web-based interface. It also makes it easy for you to install content management systems such as WordPress. As an alternative to creating a CMS-backed website, you can use the website builder to build a professional web presence.
Since security is arguably the most important aspect of any web hosting (especially e-commerce), you’ll be pleased to hear that this host gives you an SSL certificate for free. You’ll also be pleased to hear that your website will sit on super-fast and reliable SSD storage.
If shared hosting isn’t sufficient for your needs, you can choose a Linux or Windows VPS instead.
Pricing and Support
Imagen Web Hoy provides three shared hosting packages with increasing resource allocations and a free SSL certificate. It’s a little unclear, but if the advertised prices are for a full year, then they’re reasonable. If the prices are per month, then they’re bordering on extortionate.
The purchase process is a little unusual because the “information” button for each plan takes you to a contact form:
Aside from the contact form, you can call the company (during working hours on weekdays) or send an email, but I have to tell you that my exploratory email went unanswered.
