Leading Greek hosting provider MultiHosting was founded in 2003. True to its name, it offers a multitude of hosting types, including traditional shared and reseller hosting, SSD hosting, SSD reseller hosting, CMS hosting, dedicated servers, SSD VPS, and radio and video streaming. This host also sells SSL certificates and provides domain registration services.
MultiHosting prides itself on having hosted 15,000 websites for 3,000 happy customers across Europe, America, and North Africa. Its elegant, interactive, and highly informative Greek-language website displays prices in euros.
Features and Ease of Use
MultiHosting’s hosting typically includes these features:
- Free SSL certificates
- Plesk control panel for Windows
- cPanel control panel for Linux
- Free website builder
- Daily and weekly backups
- 99.9% uptime guarantee
- Disaster recovery plan
Besides the cheap shared hosting plans for Linux and Windows, there is also a free hosting plan for Linux. This free plan provides 50 MB disk space, unlimited bandwidth, and one hosted website, so it is suitable for beginners and small businesses.
The low-price paid Linux and Windows packages provide unlimited bandwidth and disk space of 1 GB to15 GB, so it’s decent enough for small-scale storage. You get the cPanel control panel for Linux and the Plesk control panel for Windows.
Higher up the hosting scale, the SSD Linux hosting is more suitable for webmasters who want to run e-shops with up to 100,000 visitors per month. You can also get LiteSpeed Linux accounts with built-in DDoS protection and zero downtime for high-traffic applications. For these plans, disk space ranges from 500 MB to 15 GB, and you get unlimited bandwidth, unlimited databases, unlimited mailboxes, and up to 15 add-on domains.
MultiHosting’s servers are located in German and Finnish data centers. Although the 99.9% uptime guarantee is only on par with the industry average, I am aware of plenty of positive user reviews… and no reports of downtime.
Pricing and Support
MultiHosting’s shared hosting prices vary from cheap to moderate, with free website migration but no free domain. You can pay by PayPal or credit/debit card, and the generous 60-day money-back guarantee (which is twice as long as most other hosts) gives you almost two months to get out if anything goes wrong.
Contact options are live chat during working hours, 24/7 ticket support, telephone, or email. I got instant and adequate answers via the live chat channel:
The self-support library contains several useful tutorials for most major topics, but there are no video tutorials, and you can’t get remote assistance as far as I know.
