It’s based in the United Kingdom and Romania, currently operating six offices in those two countries. Its services include internet connections, hosting, and data security. The website is in English and Romanian.
Features and Ease of Use
Their servers run on cloud, offering users elastic scalability where they can add or remove resources with one click. M247 offers shared web hosting, VPS, dedicated servers, colocation, and data centers. Each shared server user has access to the following resources:
- 99.9% uptime guarantee
- Daily/weekly automatic backups
- Free SSL certificate on the top two plans
- Free domain registration on annual subscription
- Unlimited traffic
The storage is Solid State Drive (SSD). SSD reads and writes data fast and as such serve the data and in turn your website faster. It’s great for website load time and storage life.
Another place that the servers perform well is in the port speed. It has a 1Gbit port with guaranteed 1Gbit speed. That means that the server can handle more amount of users downloading more data at the same time. For websites that have a lot of data and traffic, this is an especially useful feature. If you sell large digital products and have a lot of traffic, for example, you will benefit from this.
Although not directly tied to the web hosting plans, there is customized support for businesses in different sectors, including e-commerce, finance, and software development. With those customized solutions, you get a DDoS network and a customized secure environment along with your web hosting plan.
Beginners can use Installatron one-click web application installer in their cPanel, but there’s no website builder.
