Nederhost offers web hosting, domain name registration, SSL certificates, and email services with a RAID 5 disk array on a Linux based hosting. It has been in operation since 1999. It serves users in Netherland and Belgium with servers that are located in Amsterdam, Netherlands. Its webpage is available in Dutch only.
Features and Ease of Use
With Nederhost’s Standard web hosting plan, you get the following perks:
- 99.9% uptime guarantee
- Daily automatic backups
- Unlimited number of domain names
- Free SSL certificates
- 1GB disk space and 25GB bandwidth
Nederhost stores backups of customers to servers in an offsite location for added reliability in case anything were to happen to its main data center.
Its standard plan allows hosting of only one website. If you want to host multiple sites from one shared space, Nederhost recommends a shared hosting package called WebSpace with more disk space and bandwidth.
On both plans, you can install applications such as WordPress, Magento, OpenCart, osCommerce and a host of others automatically. It also allows you to upload files via FTP or with an encrypted connection via FTPs, SFTP or SCP.
It offers SSH access to help you manage your website and its storage type is a RAID 5 disk array coupled with real-time mirroring. This means that the secondary storage server can be switched over to the primary storage server quickly in the event of a hardware failure on the main storage server.
Nederhost supports both PHP and Python programming languages. It also supports CGI, lets you set up five MySQL databases, and easily set up cron jobs on its Linux operating system.
Pricing and Support
Nederhost offers a monthly and yearly payment plans on its WebBasic package while offering one month, three months and one year subscription periods for its WebSpace package. The prices are too expensive for the features on its packages especially when you compare it to what other web hosting companies offer.
When you make an order, your hosting will start working immediately after you pay your invoice. No extra setup time, which is great.
Nederhost’s support comes in the form of a knowledge base FAQ, ticket and email on its webpage. It provides phone support and doesn’t offer 24/7 support to its clients. I had a few questions and I couldn’t get answers from its knowledge base so I sent an email.
However, I never received a response despite waiting for weeks.
