MWEB is South African IT giant, famous across the region for their uncapped ADSL service that connects hundreds of thousands of users across the country. The company started their operation in 1997 and later included web hosting. Now MWEB serves their clients using local data centers providing secure web hosting services at a reasonable price.
Features and Ease of Use
The company is somewhat limited as they offer only four hosting plans that are very similar. The most notable difference that exists between packages is the number of email accounts that you can have with each hosting plan.
Every hosting plan offers unlimited traffic, meaning that no matter how popular a website is there will always be room for more people onboard. Bloggers will find this very attractive. They offer unlimited storage on their servers regardless of the plan you choose. There aren’t many hosting agencies that offer unlimited traffic and storage with all their plans.
Additionally, I was able to build my own website using their simple yet extremely powerful website building tool which allowed me to use some of the many templates that are easy to customize. Moreover, there are a number of free add-ons to use in order to make the website better and offer additional content and value to my visitors.
They offer a Free domain with their plans. The email storage could be a little more generous, however, these hosting plans are designed for personal blogs and small e-commerce operations. Therefore, starting with 20MB on each of the 5 email accounts for free is not such a bad deal after all.
Pricing and Support
When you consider everything that is included in the price, you’ll find that their prices are quite reasonable. However, it’s important to note that the prices displayed on their website are in South African Rands. So, unless you’re already familiar with the currency, you might need to do some online converting to determine the exact amount you’ll have to pay. It’s just a small step to ensure you have a clear understanding of the costs involved.
Moving from a smaller grade plan to a higher and vice versa is simple – just contact their customer service and they will lead you through the process.
MWEB has 24/7 phone support and a ticket system that will give you directions and solutions in a reasonable amount of time. In case you’d like to cancel your Mweb account, you should contact its customer support.
