Having been founded in the year 2000, Kei.pl is one of Poland’s most experienced web hosting companies. Its mission is to provide customers with an easy way to get secure and reliable shared, VPS, and dedicated server hosting. The product catalog has something for everyone from hobbyists to large businesses who need resource-intensive infrastructure for their business solutions.
Kei.pl operates its own data center in Krakow, Poland, and its website is in Polish.
Features and Ease of Use
Kei.pl provides feature-rich hosting with powerful add-ons. Its feature set including:
- Discounted domains with all hosting plans
- Unlimited databases and websites
- Free Let’s Encrypt SSL certificates
- Automatic daily backups stored for up to three days
- Up to 200 GB HD or 60 GB SSD storage
- Unlimited monthly bandwidth limits
The hosting also comes with some pretty good features such as automated daily backups, free Anycast DNS management, and an integrated CDN.
To manage your hosting, Kei.pl provides its WebAs control panel that is demoed on its website. This panel provides a good balance between ease-of-use and control over your hosting. Importantly, it includes a one-click app installer that lets you install WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, or almost any other CMS.
If you’re looking for a dedicated server, you’ll definitely find something of interest at Kei.pl. Some of its dedicated servers are optimized for Magento, while others are configured for resellers. You can choose between a root server (if you want to manage your server yourself) or a server administration package (so they will do the management for you). Servers run on the latest Intel Xeon technology with SSD storage available.
Pricing and Support
Kei.pl tends to offer its shared hosting at very low introductory prices, then bump them up to standard (but not excessive) rates in the second and subsequent years. For the price you pay, you get a fair amount of storage and bandwidth, and no limit on the number of databases or websites you can host.
You get a free shared SSL certificate or a heavily discounted private SSL certificate for the first year. There is no free domain, but you can pick one up at a pretty low price to go with your hosting. As long as you steer clear of the cheapest plans, Kei.pl also offers free migration services for shared hosting and VPS customers. Note that the migration fee is quite high if you choose the cheapest hosting plan(s).
Do you still need some convincing before you sign up? If so, you can take advantage of the 14-day free trial, which is a good idea since the minimum commitment is one year thereafter.
You can contact Kei.pl’s 24/7 technical support team (even while a free customer) via telephone, ticket, email, or live chat. The live chat agent was very responsive and stuck with me until all my questions were answered.
For self-support, Kei.pl provides a pretty comprehensive knowledge base.
