MaikelVE Pro is part of Belgium’s MaikelVE Group, which was founded in August 2015. This host began with a reseller package sitting on an American server, and it has since come a long way to offer hundreds of servers that sit in data centers around the world.
MaikelVE Pro offers shared hosting and Plesk reseller hosting packages, and it plans to launch a DirectAdmin reseller hosting package soon. You can also get domain registration and transfer services, SSL certificates, WHMCompleteSolution addons, GSuite solutions, and more.
This host’s website supports the Dutch language.
Features and Ease of Use
MaikelVE Pro offers 17 shared hosting plans (in budget, WordPress, Joomla, professional hosting, and nonprofit variants) and two Plesk reseller hosting plans. Maybe by the time you read this, the DirectAdmin reseller hosting plans will also be live.
The three budget hosting plans provide you with:
- One to ten hosted websites
- cPanel control panel
- 5 GB to 15 GB SSD storage
- Unlimited data traffic
- 10 to 20 MySQL databases
- 10 to 500 email addresses
- Free spam filters
- Free DV SSL certificate
- Daily backups
MaikelVE Pro provides a one-click installer for popular CMS programs such as WordPress, Magento, Joomla, and Drupal, which you can install right from the control panel. Your website will sit on SSD storage, which is far faster and more reliable than traditional HDD storage.
For security, automatic patching will fix security breaches as soon as they are identified, a web filter protects against some kinds of attacks (SQL injections, brute force, and rootkits attacks), and you also benefit from a free firewall, DDoS protection, and a malware scanner.
You get a good 99.99% server uptime.
Pricing and Support
MaikelVE Pro’s budget shared hosting plans are cheap. The WordPress hosting plans include various freebies (a domain, an SSL certificate, and free mailboxes), and nonprofits can get professional hosting packages at half price.
You can pay in U.S. dollars, euros, or British pounds by PayPal, credit/debit card, bank transfer, Bancontact, Apple Pay, iDeal, KBC Bank, Belfius Bank, or ING Home Pay. Available billing cycles are monthly, annual, biennial, or triennial, with bigger discounts for longer billing cycles. In all cases, you get a 14-day money-back guarantee.
For self-support, you can refer to the extensive knowledge base. Otherwise, you can contact this company’s 24/7 customer support team via telephone, ticket, email, live chat, or online contact form. Email response times are expected to be 30 minutes during working hours and one hour at other times. Although live chat was unavailable when I wanted to try it, I received a reply to my support ticket in about a day:
