IpEvolution offers a range of hosting and IT services. The company is based in Italy and provides a 30-day money-back guarantee on hosting.

Overview

IpEvolution

Founded in 1996, IpEvolution provides a range of services including web hosting, IT security, trade marketing, website design and development, and IT consultancy. The company is based in Italy.

IpEvolution’s servers are located in Milan, Italy, Paris and Strasbourg, France, Germany, and the Czech Republic. Its website is available in Italian only.

Features and Ease of Use

For hosting, IpEvolution offers shared hosting, VPS, dedicated servers, cloud servers, and co-location. For the sake of this review, I’ll focus more on its shared hosting which it offers in two categories with four plans each. They provide the following features:

  • 99.8% / 99.9% uptime guarantee
  • Weekly/daily automatic backups on some plans
  • Free domain registration
  • 10 to unlimited add-on domains on the pro plans
  • Up to 1000GB monthly traffic
  • Anywhere from 250MB to 20GB

IpEvolution provides DirectAdmin control panel to shared hosting customers. It’s one of the easiest and most stable management panels. I like its simplicity and user-friendly interface with all options located in top navigation menus. You don’t have to be tech-savvy to understand it.

Also, it provides a one-click installer for web applications. If you’re in the Pro plans, you get to use this tool but if you are in the basic shared hosting plans, you don’t have access to an installer and would have to figure out manual installations by yourself.

Another restricted feature is automatic backups. Although all Pro customers get daily backups, only those on the top plan under Basic hosting gets automatic backups and that is per week. Every other person will have to take manual backups from their DirectAdmin panel because you can’t even set cron jobs to do it as only pro customers get cron.

If you are on the starter plan, you’ll have to stick with an HTML & CSS website. Other plans allow the use of PHP for programming but that’s all that you get.

Also, it provides disk mirroring to pro customers which is great for reliability in a case where the main drive fails. However, for the basic shared hosting, no disk mirroring. Adding to this reliability feature is DDoS attack prevention and firewalls – on all plans.

Pricing and Support

IpEvolution offers high prices for its shared hosting plans. Furthermore, it doesn’t offer one month subscription period. Billing starts from 12 months. Frankly, you’ll get lower prices and shorter durations elsewhere.

However, the free domain, data mirroring, and other features might be enough reason for you to take a plan. Fortunately, it provides a 30-day money-back guarantee on all shared hosting plans so you’re assured of a refund if you don’t like it.

Although there’s a knowledge base section, it’s empty and without tutorials that customers need. You’ll have to contact support and even that is not available 24/7. You can get through to the support agents through phone on Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.

There’s also an email address which I used to contact it but didn’t get a response.

Bottom line on IpEvolution

IpEvolution offers nice features but most things are restricted to customers on the Pro (Professional) plans. If you’re on Basic/Shared Hosting Italy, you wouldn’t get much. Also, its prices are higher and start from 12 months. Customers support options are limited to phone only as its provided email address doesn’t seem to work as I got no response from it.

Pros

  • DDoS protection and firewalls
  • It provides disk mirroring
  • 30-day money-back guarantee
  • Provides DirectAdmin easy-to-use panel

Cons

  • Automatic backups are restricted to some plans
  • No one month subscription period for shared hosting
