Nexo Hosting is operated by the Nexo Virtual design and digital marketing company that was founded in 2005. This host has servers in Spain and the United Kingdom, and its Spanish-language website advertises shared hosting, reseller hosting and virtual private servers (VPS).
Features and Ease of Use
Nexo Hosting offers four shared hosting packages with SSD storage for speed and reliability. These plans also provide you with:
- 99.9% uptime guarantee
- Free SSL certificate
- Daily automatic backups
- One, two, or unlimited domains per account
- From 2 GB to 15 GB disk space
- Up to 100 GB bandwidth
Underpinning the hosting is the CentOS Linux distribution that is very stable, fast, and lightweight.
On top of the operating system sits the cPanel control panel that includes the Softaculous installer for CMS and other programs such as WordPress, Drupal, Magento, and Joomla. In the case of WordPress, you can configure backups and updates to the WordPress core, themes, and plugins.
Pricing and Support
Nexo Hosting’s shared hosting plans can be subscribed to on quarterly or annual billing cycles, but there are no monthly subscriptions. The fees are slightly high for the features on offer, and there is no free domain (despite being advertised on the home page), but you do get free SSL. Pay by bank transfer or a credit/debit card.
Although Nexo Hosting claims to offer 24/7 technical support by telephone, ticket, or email, my pre-sales exploratory email went unanswered. Interestingly, the live chat link leads to a set of video tutorials:
