Loopia was founded in 1998 and over the years it has provided web hosting customers with affordable Linux and Windows hosting packages with great features.

Overview

Loopia have been in the hosting business for a little over 20 years. With over 200,000 customers, they’re of the largest hosting services in Scandinavia. Their data centers are located in Arizona, California, and Nevada.

Features and Ease of Use

Loopia offers a variety of web hosting and VPS solutions with many features.  Their personal or business plans include:

  • cPanel access
  • One-click installer
  • FTP accounts
  • Small website builder
  • POP3 & IMAP email accounts
  • Scripting languages
  • Daily backups

Loopia provides you with everything you need to create and manage your website, blog, or emails. The shared hosting for personal and businesses comes with a one-click installer that lets you set up a website using your favorite CMS or app. You can create a simple site directly on your browser using the Loopia Website Builder with an intuitive drag and drop interface.

Unlike some hosting services, Loopia’s sign up is short and simple. Your web space will be set up within minutes. You can then register your domain, transfer your website, or set up a database-driven one using WordPress or Drupal or Joomla.  For those who like to code, their is a library of scripting languages, such as Perl, Python, PHP, and ASP.NET.

When you sign up with Loopia, you’ll also receive Free Google AdWords vouchers to kick-start your online advertisements. Not many hosting services offer such a service. You can choose which keywords you want to advertise and promote them in the Google Search Engine.

At a time when websites are facing relentless attacks, you want to have a partner who watches over your web resources day and night. Loopia provides DDOS protection against hackers, identity theft, viruses, and spyware. All their hosting packages come with a 3-months free and continuous protection.

Switching or upgrading Loopia plans is easy and you can do that directly from your control panel. Overall, you’ll have an easy time moving from page to page. I want to believe this simplicity extends to the control panel. Apart from being neat, I like the fact that they use comparative tables to compare plans.

Pricing and Support

Loopia offers three shared hosting plans: Home, Business, and Business Plus. With the Home plan, you get 75 GB web space, a similar email space, unlimited e-mail addresses, and 25 MariaDB databases. You will also receive free technical support and daily backups with your Unix hosting.
