Web hosting company IP.GR is based in Thessaloniki, Greece, and it hosts its customers on servers in Greece and throughout Europe. Its services include shared hosting, semi-dedicated hosting, reseller hosting, and domain registration.
IP.GR’s reasonably attractive website is available to view in English or Greek, and it displays prices in euros.
Features and Ease of Use
IP.GR offers two types of shared hosting — Standard Line and Business Line — with three price plans in each case; Value, Power, and Premium. Whereas the Standard Line plans use SSD storage, the Business Line plans use the even faster NVMe storage. There are a few other (minor) differences, but otherwise, the features are the same across all categories and plans:
- Free SSL certificate
- Automatic regular backups
- 99.9% uptime guarantee
- Cron jobs
- cPanel control panel
- Installatron installer
All plans come with the cPanel control panel to manage all aspects of your hosting. Use it to manage your website files, FTP accounts, domains, and more. The control panel incorporates the slightly outdated Installatron installer. Although I prefer Softaculous, the supplied installer still lets you one-click-install a plethora of popular CMS and other applications such as WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, PrestaShop, Magento, and more.
Cron jobs allow you to schedule scripts to run regularly rather than having to execute them manually every time.
Pricing and Support
Compared with the European market, IP.GR’s prices are attractively affordable for the features and resources you get. Although monthly prices are displayed, you can choose to be billed quarterly, semi-annually, annually, or biennially, and the 30-day money-back guarantee (for new customers) should make you feel better about making a major commitment. Pay by PayPal, bank transfer, debit/credit card, or even cash.
IP.GR’s website is informative, and it contains several self-support resources such as a comprehensive knowledge base, an FAQ section for each service, and some video tutorials. If these resources don’t answer all your questions, you can contact the customer team via telephone, support ticket, or email. However, my exploratory email received no response.
