Italian hosting company Interferenza was established in 1995. With more 23 years in the hosting industry, this vendor’s commitment to offering quality web hosting solutions is reflected by the thousands of domains it hosts on its 84 servers.
Interferenza is among the top 20 largest hosting companies in Italy by market share. It offers shared hosting, dedicated servers, and virtual server services to SMEs and large corporations.
The Interferenza website looks a little outdated and still uses the out-of-favor Flash rather than the more modern HTML5 to display some of its content. The website is available in English and Italian.
Features and Ease of Use
Interferenza’s hosting solutions come with the following standard features:
- Linux operating system
- SSL certificates
- Unlimited MySQL databases
- PrestaShop version 1.6
- Web control panel
- Unlimited subdomains
- FTP access
- PHP 5.2
- AWStats statistics
- Daily data backups
In addition, the hosting plans include daily backups and managed nightly backups of data, including web pages, email account messages, MySQL databases, and statistics.
The Windows and Linux shared hosting solutions come in two packages. The entry-level simpleWeb package comes with 1 GB of disk space plus 5 email accounts with 100 MB storage each. The higher entryWeb shared hosting plan includes unlimited subdomains, 2 GB of disk space, 5 email accounts with 1 GB storage each, and 10 GB monthly traffic.
Interferenza’s VPS solutions are hosted on Dell PowerEdge 2950 III Server and Dell PowerEdge R410 Server with a minimum specification of 2,26 GHz CPU, SAS disks, RAID 5 configuration, and dual NIC Gigabit port. This allows the vendor to offer superior and reliable hosting services.
Pricing and Support
Interferenza’s hosting plans are pretty cheap, but they come with notable feature restrictions. Additional features such as extra bandwidth, CPUs, disk space, and memory are offered at additional cost. Plans are priced in euros and are offered on flexible monthly and annual billing cycles.
Daily backups are free, but managed nightly backups cost extra. There is no free trial or refund policy, but you do get an uptime network guarantee.
You can contact this company by telephone or an online form, but there is no email, live chat or ticketing system. The customer support desk is available 24/7/365, and I found the staff to be quite responsive. I received a reply to my exploratory email within four hours, which is fortunate because there is no knowledge base for self-support.
