With irPowerWeb, customers get remote backups performed on a weekly basis. The vendor performs over 850 backups each year for free. What’s more, it offers FTP backup packages as additional backup plans for clients who would want more secure websites and more storage space for their backups.
Its most basic FTP backup plan, FTP A, includes disk space of 10GB and 50GB monthly traffic. On the other hand, FTP F is this vendor’s most advanced backup plan. It comes with 100GB disk space and up to 1000GB monthly traffic. All of the plans provide access to DirectAdmin Panel and cPanel for easy management.
Pricing and Support
irPowerWeb has pretty cheap hosting packages with prices listed in Iranian toman. The vendor’s hosting plans come in flexible billing cycles, including monthly and annual subscriptions. In addition, this vendor offers monthly discounts to customers who make annual payments.
irPowerWeb’s refund policy is somewhat different from other vendors in the market. While other hosting providers will limit their money back guarantee to, say, 30 days, this vendor is comfortable with refunding its customers at any time, if for whatever reason, they become dissatisfied with the quality of its solutions.
All the same, it is important to note that the vendor will not refund you for the past hosting period; it will only return the remaining credit of the purchased services for the remaining paid billing cycle. In addition, the hosting firm also maintains server availability of 99.9%.
If you need technical assistance, you can contact the irPowerWeb customer desk via telephone, email, or ticket. The vendor does not have a live chat though it includes an invalid link to a live chat. The customer support team is stated to be available 24/7/365, yet my email to them received no response. In addition, the irPowerWeb knowledge base is fairly detailed.
