KORDONWEB started offering simple web hosting services to small and medium-sized Turkish customers in 2006. From a data center in their home country, they provide shared web hosting, SHOUTcast hosting, and dedicated servers.

Overview

KORDONWEB

KORDONWEB offers Turkish-language services and support for domain name registration, web hosting, server rental, SSL, and web design. Founded in 2006, they provide a high-quality platform on which individuals and small corporates can host their websites, SHOUTcast radio stations, and other web content. Shared and dedicated servers are housed in a data center located in Turkey.

Features and Ease of Use

For personal brands and business websites, you’ll enjoy the following standard features that come with the Linux and Windows shared hosting:

  • 99.9% uptime guarantee
  • Up to either 20,000MB (Linux) or 5,000MB (Windows) storage space
  • SSL certificates available for purchase
  • Paid domain registrations

They do offer a few value-added services, but much fewer than you’d expect. One of them is the QuickInstall installer that allows you to quickly install scripts for CMS, blog, e-commerce, and other software. Their servers all come with Zend and Ioncube components already installed, which means you can use PHP and MySQL with added protection against hackers running PHP malware.

It’s clear to me that this vendor’s shared hosting plans are only geared towards basic to intermediate website owners. And the SHOUTcast hosting is not much different, because the highest plan is limited to just 250 listeners.

Pricing and Support

Only the most basic websites comprising simple contact details, company information, and a few images can make use of the lowest plan that has data storage of just 500MB. Keep in mind that if you’re using IMAP (like Roundcube) you’ll also need some space to hold emails, not to mention space for backups.

In the likely event that you need to go for a more expensive plan to get up to 20,000MB of space and 75GB of traffic, you needn’t worry too much about the prices that are still quite reasonable for the resources provided. If you need to scale yet higher with a dedicated plan that has up to 250GB at most, then the prices do get expensive.

Biennial billing is available on all plans and add-ons, but you need to be sure about making a multiyear commitment because there is no money-back guarantee and no free trial period. Also, there’s no free domain or SSL, but you can purchase both from their website.

Customer support can be accessed from 9.00am to 6.00pm (GMT +3). You can email, phone, or fax, but be sure to have Google Translate close by if you don’t speak Turkish. I have to say that when I used their contact form to enquire about backups and connecting SSL, it did seem that they knew nothing about those things. And to top it off, their FAQ knowledge base is almost empty.
