Unlike many web hosts which over-promise (or oversell) and under-deliver, the Netz0 brand was founded on the principle of zero overselling. It also promises zero downtime, and to take you from “zer0 to online”, which is where all those zeros come from.
Netz0’s website can be switched between English, Spanish, and German.
Features and Ease of Use
Some of Netz0’s notable features are:
- Domain registration and protection
- Advanced zone editor
- 130+ ready web apps
- PHP 4, 5 and 7
- MySQL databases
- FTP accounts
- Python, Perl, and Ruby
- Multisite support
- Network and application firewall
The user-friendly cPanel control panel is the administration interface for every hosting account. From its dashboard, you can import files using the web-based file manager, create and configure domains, set up personalized emails with anti-spam protection, and deploy databases with phpMyAdmin.
When it comes to building your website, you can use 130+ out-of-the-box web apps or the free NetzBuilder website builder. Developers get support for a plethora of programming languages including Python, Perl, Ruby, and PHP (versions 4 to 7).
Netz0’s Intel Xeon-powered servers are built using enterprise-grade hardware. When you’re ready to scale up, you can choose a private dedicated server or cloud VPS that comes with more storage space and higher RAM.
Although Netz0 shouts about zero downtime, it actually offers as 99.9% uptime SLA, which is only average in the hosting industry. As it says on its own website, “Saying one thing and indeed providing it is very different.” I think we can be more confident about the zero-overselling guarantee.
Pricing and Support
Netz0’s “low-cost virtual hosting plans” are exactly as described from a low-cost perspective. You get zero-minute activation (i.e., instant) when you purchase a plan online using PayPal, credit card, or Bitcoin on terms ranging from one month to three years. You can get some pretty substantial discounts for longer commitments, and the whopping 45-day money-back guarantee should make you feel better about signing up for a long stretch.
For self-support, Netz0 provides pretty extensive user guides and a comprehensive knowledge base:
If you can’t support yourself using these excellent resources, you can raise a ticket from the client area or call the telephone number to ask for help. There is no live chat at the time of writing.
