Small Chilean company iNet offers a small number of hosting plans from an unappealing "old style" website. But surprisingly, you get cPanel and SSD storage.

Overview

inet.cl

This small Chilean hosting company seems to have a bit of an identity crisis, since it goes under the names iNet, NETCAFE, and RED6 (or possibly all three). For this review, I’ll stick with iNet since it corresponds with the company’s web address.

iNet boasts about many years of experience (up to 25) in the development of computer systems, not all of which (obviously) has to do with web hosting. Despite its longevity, it seems to have stayed pretty small, and it serves mainly – if not only – small companies with shared hosting, VPS hosting, and dedicated servers.

iNet’s Spanish-language website has a distinctly “old style” feel to it.

Features and Ease of Use

iNet’s hosting packages provide a pretty narrow range of features that should be just enough to satisfy your basic hosting needs. Some of these features are:

  • cPanel
  • 99.99% uptime guarantee
  • Weekly backups
  • SSD storage
  • PHP support

The higher priced plans come with unlimited subdomains, MySQL databases, email accounts, and FTP accounts, and all plans offer a “Zero Tolerance” option that protects your website against malware and hacking

Pricing and Support

iNet offers six main hosting plans that vary in terms of storage, bandwidth, and a few other features. The lower hosting plans can only be bought on yearly contracts whereas the higher packages can be bought with monthly or annual billing options.

This provider’s hosting prices are not the cheapest you will find, especially considering the limitations, but in my experience, this is not that unusual for a hosting vendor of this vintage.

You can pay by credit cards or bank check, and you get a 30-day money-back guarantee when you first subscribe.

Unfortunately, iNet gets low marks for customer support for several reasons. Although you can theoretically contact the company via a contact form or email, I failed to secure a response via either method. Also, the vendor’s website contains little content, and there is no such thing as a knowledge base other than a basic FAQ page:

Bottom line on inet.cl

If you’re looking for small-scale hosting from a small-scale provider, then iNet (or NETCAFE, or RED6, or whatever they’re called) might have something to interest you. However, I have to admit that I get nervous when a vendor with a website of this vintage doesn’t respond to pre-sales queries, so I would personally proceed with caution.

Pros

  • cPanel
  • SSD storage
  • “Zero Tolerance” option for malware protection
  • SSL certificates

Cons

  • Unappealing vendor website
  • Unresponsive pre-sales support
