Features and Ease of Use
Nicalia’s web hosting plans can be managed with cPanel/WHM (available in Spanish), and you can also benefit from these features:
- Daily backups
- Free domain for the first year
- 24/7 customer support
- Softaculous one-click installer for 500+ programs
- Free website migration
- Multiple PHP versions
- Spanish IP addresses
Nicalia employs a combination of CloudLinux (to isolate you from other hosted users), the LiteSpeed webserver (which is faster than Apache), and SSD storage in RAID configuration (for performance and resilience). Daily JetBackup backups help safeguard your data, and they are managed from the cPanel control panel.
Servers sit in Barcelona’s bitNAP Datacenter, which is monitored 24/7 and protected by firewalls and physical measures.
Pricing and Support
Nicalia’s hosting services are not the cheapest you will find, but they do include many advanced tools and features, so maybe you get what you pay for. You can pay for plans in euros, on terms up to triennial, with discounts for multi-year commitments. If such a commitment concerns you, you can take comfort from the fact that you can get your money back within 30 days if you’re not convinced.
Self-support resources include a comprehensive help center containing lots of “how-to” tutorials. 24-hour support is available via telephone and email, with an anticipated one-hour response time. However, it took 48 hours to reply to my inquiry as a pre-sales prospect customer:
