IQgroup has been selling hosting services via its IQhost.eu brand for almost a decade. With servers in Poland and France, it has accumulated more than 1,000 shared hosting and VPS customers to date.
IQhost.eu’s site can be switched between the Polish and English languages.
Features and Ease of Use
All IQhost.eu’s regular shared hosting and WordPress hosting plans include the DirectAdmin control panel and an application installer, and they provide these features:
- 99.9% uptime SLA
- Free SSL certificates
- Unlimited domains
- 5 GB to 100 GB storage
- Unlimited transfer
Shared hosting sites are served by the LiteSpeed webserver (which is far faster than Apache) sitting on CloudLinux with CageFS (to isolate you from other hosted users). Since security is paramount, you are protected by a web application firewall and DDoS protection.
While standard shared hosting servers use the slower HDD storage, the WordPress and VPS plans provide faster SSD storage options. The RAID 10 configuration helps guard against potential disk data disasters, but if the worst should ever happen, you’ll be pleased that IQhost.eu performs automated daily backups that are retained for seven days.
Pricing and Support
IQhost.eu’s prices are pretty low for the features on offer. Although the WordPress plans aren’t the cheapest you will find, you can benefit from SSD storage. In all cases, you get free SSL but no free domain.
Whereas the WordPress plans allow you to make monthly payments, standard hosting must be bought on annual, biennial, or triennial terms. You get a 14-day money-back guarantee that gives you two weeks to change your mind, even for VPS plans.
