NOORNET uses powerful Apache servers in its hosting packages. The firm provides Linux and Windows operating system to power its hosting packages, and each of its hosting packages comes with a Plesk cPanel.
Its’ Windows and Linux web hosting packages each include seven plans. The vendor provides similar features for both Windows and Linux hosting packages. The basic plan for both comes with 250MB disk space, 3GB monthly bandwidth, five subdomains, five email accounts, one MySQL database, and unlimited FTP accounts.
Its advanced plan on both platforms includes 20GB disk space, 200GB monthly bandwidth, unlimited subdomains, unlimited email accounts, 10 MySQL databases, and unlimited FTP accounts.
The firm does not offer backup services to its customers, which means you have to perform your own backups. It is also noteworthy to point out that the vendor shuts out users who exceed the allocated resources.
It offers SSL certificate as an additional package which it markets to its users. Available certificates include PositiveSSL Wildcard, PositiveSSL, and Personal SSL among others.
Other services offered by the hosting provider include virtual servers, which include six plans. The basic plan includes 40GB disk space, 100GB monthly bandwidth, 2GB RAM, and 1 CPU Core.
The advanced plan comes with 160GB disk space, 700GB monthly bandwidth, 12 GB RAM, and 6 CPU Cores. In addition, the company offers data center rental services by hiring out space for hosting its clients’ servers. NOORNET servers are all housed in its Tier 3 data center, which includes N+1redundancy for infrastructure and equipment.
Pricing and Support
NOORNET’s hosting packages are pocket-friendly. The vendor offers an inflexible billing cycle in which its customers commit to make monthly payments, and its prices are all listed in U.S. dollar.
The firm does not offer a money-back guarantee, but it does offer a 99% network uptime guarantee, which is considered to be quite low. I found this to be unfortunate as it leaves prospective users uncertain about its web hosting services.
In the event of any technical problem, you can reach out to NOORNET’s customer service through telephone, email, and ticketing system. It has no live chat support. This firm does not offer 24/7 support to its customers.
I sent this vendor a query via its support email but did not hear back from them.
The NOORNET website includes a knowledge base and FAQ section to tackle most of the queries that users might raise.
