o12.pl is a web hosting company that’s located in Krakow, Poland and offers shared web hosting services and domain registration. In business since 2003, it targets customers who understand polish. The company’s servers are located in Poland.
Features and Ease of Use
o12.pl offers Linux web hosting with three shared hosting plans starting at 50 GB space which works for small digital e-commerce stores with a few products, and some medium-sized businesses. Its higher plans provide even more features. These are some resources provided to customers:
- 99.9% uptime
- Daily automatic backups
- Free .pl domain
- Free SSL
- Unlimited add-on domains
- From 50GB to 250 GB space
It provides A – Z support from website building to marketing with both beginner-friendly and developer-friendly tools. For beginners, it features a webpage builder. There’s also a one-click installer that allows you to install different scripts and popular CMS applications such as WordPress and Joomla!.
For developers, it provides easy connection to SVN and Git repositories from the control panel – which is cPanel by the way – to manage projects easily. There’s also SSH access on the top two plans and crontab provided.
Asides from development/designing websites, o12.pl takes it further with a little bit of marketing with the Attracta SEO tools. Not many people understand SEO and Attracta gives you a bit of a start, getting your website off the ground.
o12.pl also offers CloudLinux which makes shared hosting servers more secure and enables full use of resources without interference. It supports PHP programming and has a PHP multi-version selector. You can also code with Python as it supports the language too.
The company provides anti-spam using SpamAssassin and BoxTrapper for better email experience.
Pricing and Support
o12.pl does not offer a free trial, so you’ll have to commit money if you want to try out its service. You can start with annual plans. I noticed that there was no option to pick one month period before checkout.
Also, there’s no money-back guarantee, but it offers a downtime warranty of two days of free hosting for every 24 hours of experienced downtime.
When compared to the hosting features it makes available, o12.pl offers low-cost hosting. Its prices are competitive and offer valuable features for the low fee that you pay. Also, its free domain and SSL are two big pluses.
You can only contact support through email, ticket, and phone. Despite advertising live chat, I couldn’t find any. On a good note, there’s a knowledge base and it replies pretty fast.
