This Portuguese provider’s website is available in English and Portuguese.

- Windows or Linux operating system

Magic4Hosting uses servers in seven locations around the world: in Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Singapore, Hong Kong, Dallas, Los Angeles, and São Paulo. Whether Magic4Hosting owns its own data centers is not clear from its website, and I couldn’t get confirmation from customer support.
Hosting is managed using the Virtualmin“powerful and flexible web hosting control panel for Linux and BSD systems,” but you can use cPanel or Plesk instead if you prefer. The choice of operating systems includes CentOS/Ubuntu Linux or Windows. Considering this is a budget host, there is a surprising level of support for Python and Perl programming languages, MySQL databases, FTP access, and Cron jobs.
Pricing and Support
Magic4Hosting’s hosting plan prices are affordable, whether you opt for the smallest “S” plan (with 5 GB of disk space and 200 GB traffic) or the largest “XL” plan (with 2000 GB of traffic). The price increases as you go from Linux without cPanel to Linux with cPanel to Windows, but prices remain in line with European and international providers.
