iwrahost is a small hosting company that simply isn’t a match for big brands like Hostinger. The bigger hosting companies simply offer a better price for similar configuration.
iwrahost is an American-based hosting company that’s a subsidiary of the IWRA group. It was founded in 2008 and specializes in a wide range of hosting products including shared hosting, VPS hosting, dedicated servers, and reseller hosting. iwrahost’s website is well-organized and informative, but only available in English.
Features and Ease of Use
iwrahost offers a range of budget price plans for its shared hosting services that differ in a few minor features but share numerous others. The common features among all price plans include, but are not limited to:
- Free SSL certificate
- Daily and weekly backups
- cPanel control panel
- 99.9% uptime guarantee
- Free website migration
- Softaculous app installer
All iwrahost price plans come with the Softaculous app installer, allowing you to easily install all the applications you need with a single click. You can install WordPress, Drupal, Joomla, Magento, PrestaShop, and many more.
The famous cPanel comes standard with all of iwrahost’s shared hosting packages. It has one of the most user-friendly interfaces in the industry and allows you to manage all aspects of your website easily and with no prior technical knowledge.
All websites on the shared hosting accounts are automatically backed up on a daily and weekly basis to ensure the full safety of all important information on your website in case of any failure.
Pricing and Support
There are four shared hosting plans offered by iwrahost: Basic Hosting, Mega Hosting, Giga Hosting, and Business Hosting. The plans differ mainly in storage, bandwidth, email accounts, and hosted domains. Prices overall are competitively cheap considering the many features that come with the packages.
There are several payment methods accepted by iwrahost such as PayPal, 2checkout, Paymentwall, and all major credit cards. When you first subscribe, there’s a 30-day money-back guarantee and you can choose to be billed on a monthly or annual basis.
As previously mentioned, the iwrahost website is informative and includes a comprehensive knowledge base with several useful tutorials and an FAQ section. I wish I could say the same for its customer support. Even though there is more than one channel through which you could contact support, including live chat, support ticket, support email, and phone, the responsiveness was not as I expected. I got no reply from both the live chat nor the support ticket.
