Rwandan hosting company MEGABIT LIMITED started out in 2018, so it’s a relatively recent entrant to the hosting market. Its English-language website sells shared hosting, WordPress hosting, VPS, cloud hosting, domain services, SSL certificates, website design, and some additional services.
Features and Ease of Use
MEGABIT LIMITED offers 11 shared hosting packages, five WordPress packages, one VPS package, and one Magento cloud hosting package. The VPS and Magento cloud hosting packages aren’t available on the website, so you’ll have to visit the cart (store pages) to find out about them.
The Starter shared hosting packages provide you with:
- 200 MB to 10 GB storage space
- Unlimited bandwidth
- 1 to 5 websites
- 1 to unlimited databases
- 2 to unlimited emails
- Weekly backups
The included one-click application installer helps you install a plethora of popular content management applications to create a CMS-backed website. And once your website is up-and-running, you can secure it with a free SSL certificate (on annual plans).
If you really don’t want to set up your website yourself, or you don’t know how, then you could consider MEGABIT’s web design service, or take a look at the Magento hosting plan.
All hosting services include DDoS protection to assure you only clean traffic, and they come with a 99.9% uptime guarantee that is about average for the industry.
Pricing and Support
The Starter shared hosting packages are dirt cheap, but the advertised prices on the website are not accurate, so you have to add a package to your cart to see the price you’ll pay. Billing cycles are annual, biennial, and triennial, and the website says something about two months’ free hosting with annual billing. A 30-day money-back guarantee means you should be able to get out within the first month (and with a full refund) if you’re dissatisfied with the services.
You should be able to contact the 24/7 customer support team by telephone, ticket, email, or live chat. I say “should” because I couldn’t summon any pre-sales support via the live chat or ticket channels. The knowledge base isn’t much better since it contains only five entries:
