Internet Brothers (Jafarnet) is a long-standing Korean website hosting provider which has been in business since 1999. According to its Korean-language website, it counts “domestic diplomatic missions [and] foreign companies” among its customers.
Features and Ease of Use
Internet Brothers sells hosting, domain names, website development, and advertising services. Its shared hosting plans come with these features as standard:
- 99.9% uptime guarantee
- Backup options available
- Domain registration available
- Popular CMS programs supported
- SSL certificates available
The hosting plans include support for popular CMS software such as WordPress, Joomla, and Drupal. There are also e-commerce options, including CubeCart and Zen Cart, plus a custom Zen Cart solution.
Although Internet Brothers’ servers are located in Korea’s largest data center (the Seocho Center), it is proud to provide international customers with a range of offshore hosting options. It also promises that an English-speaking server engineer is available in the event of any technical issues. The 99.9% uptime guarantee is in line with the industry average.
Pricing and Support
Unusually for a shared hosting provider, the website doesn’t display prices, and you can’t purchase the plans online. This is quite inconvenient.
You can contact this company’s customer support team via telephone (international and Korean numbers), ticket, and email. For self-support, there is a very substantial knowledge base that includes more than 300 articles in English:
