MivoCloud is a web hosting provider based in Moldova specializing in shared hosting, VPS hosting, cloud hosting, dedicated servers, and CMS hosting. It operates through its data centers in Moldova, Romania, the U.S.A., and Russia.
The MivoCloud website looks good, but it’s somewhat limited in information. It’s available in English, Romanian, and Russian, and the prices are in euros.
Features and Ease of Use
MivoCloud offers shared hosting in four packages – 5 GB, 10 GB, 20 GB, and 40 GB. Yes, that’s the package names and the storage that comes with each one. I have to admit that not much creativity went into labeling these plans, but the simpler, the better.
All the plans come with unlimited email accounts, databases, subdomains, as well as the following features:
- Application auto-installer (Softaculous)
- Free SSL certificate
- 99.9% uptime guarantee
- Free website migration
- Free daily backups
- SSD storage
- DDoS protection
MivoCloud uses SSD storage with all its plans, which performs faster than regular HDD storage in website data processing. In return, this reflects directly on your website’s loading speed, overall performance, and stability.
Its shared hosting plans all come with a free cPanel license. This control panel is one of the most commonly used among hosting providers due to its user-friendly management interface and numerous built-in tools.
One of these tools is Cron jobs, responsible for the automatic execution of tasks in a timely manner. Instead of executing these tasks yourself, you can input them into the tool, set a specific time for completion, and leave the rest to Cron jobs.
To be honest, I’ve come across several hosts with more to offer, and I suggest you check them out before committing to MivoCloud. You can find them in this top web hosting comparison.
Pricing and Support
MivoCloud’s prices may look attractive, but other hosts offer more features and resources at the same or even lower prices. With all plans, you can choose to be billed monthly or annually. The annual option comes at a discounted monthly cost.
On a brighter note, MivoCloud accepts a wide range of payment options, including Bitcoin. It also has a 10-day money-back guarantee with most of its services. Even though this is quite a short period compared to the industry average, it’s better than nothing.
The MivoCloud website is limited in information, including its resources. For example, I couldn’t find a knowledgebase. There was only a blog with a few articles.
I had numerous questions to ask customer support. The website states that technical support is available 24/7 through email, phone, and support tickets. However, the sales team is only available during working hours via the same channels. I went for the online channels, and I still haven’t received a reply more than 24 hours after submitting my query.
