Features and Ease of Use
IWW provides easy-to-use Linux hosting, WordPress hosting, and reseller plans. They operate with real-time malware detection, one of the best global Time To First Byte (TTFB) times, and a good PHP support. The benefits of the shared hosting plans include:
- 100% SLA guaranteed uptime
- Up to 20 Gbps DDoS protection
- RAID 10 SSD disk space
Their shared hosting packages start with the Economy plan that provides 512 MB disk space and 30 GB premium bandwidth, which should be enough to host most basic websites. If your needs exceed those limits, you can scale all the way up to the Ultimate plan that provides 10 GB disk space and 750 GB premium bandwidth. I especially like their 1-click installer, which allows you to set up several CMS systems including WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, Magento, and Fantastico.
WordPress shared hosting gives you the same storage space and bandwidth as the shared plans, but you also get expandable cores, 4GB DDR4 RAM, and FlameCache (which means don’t need to install a cache plugin such as the top-rated but problematic W3 Total Cache plugin).
IWW plans suit beginners more than expert users. Multi-site might not be possible even with the reseller packages because of the mapping of one cPanel to one website. Also, PHP is the only supported development language. However, IWW supports several Linux-based configurations and servers including NGINX, CloudLinux, Apache mod_lsapi, and many PHP versions. They also offer a good replacement for MySQL in the form of MariaDB that offers a variety of cutting-edge features and great performance.
Pricing and Support
IWW provides cheap configurable hosting services, which may offer good value even without an included domain. They also offer Let’s Encrypt SSL certificates, which you can use for free until you know you need a paid certificate.
Customer support can be contacted via phone, live chat or ticket, and I can tell you that I received an immediate response when I sent an email. Their knowledge base is basic and could be better.
