Hungarian hosting brand MediaCenter, formerly known as Medimix-Trió Bt, brings over 20 years of experience to the table and provides a variety of hosting products, including shared hosting, VPS hosting, and domain registration.
MediaCenter’s website is in Hungarian, so you’ll have to let your browser translate it if you don’t speak the language.
Features and Ease of Use
MediaCenter offers different shared hosting packages to meet different requirements for different website sizes. These packages share standard features that include:
- SSD storage
- Free SSL certificates
- Daily backups
- HostingCommander control panel
- SiteBuilder website builder
- Free domain
All the shared hosting packages are managed using the HostingCommander control panel that includes a CMS installer so you can easily install WordPress, Drupal, Joomla, PrestaShop, Magento, and more with a single click. You also get the SiteBuilder website builder that lets you lay out your website from preinstalled templates using a drag-and-drop interface.
Pricing and Support
MediaCenter’s four shared hosting plans – Start, Plus, Business, and Business Pro – differ in terms of storage and databases. The prices are below average, and you can pay for plans by credit card.
You can only be billed annually, and there is no definitive money-back guarantee period, but MediaCenter’s refund policy states that you will be refunded for the remainder of your term if you’re not entirely happy at any time. This seems fair since you’ll only be charged for the time your website is hosted.
While there’s a lot to like about MediaCenter, support isn’t its strong point. There is no live chat, so you have to contact the company via telephone or email, but my email approach was ignored. There is a limited self-support wiki, but it’s not as appealing as many that I’ve seen:
