Launched in 2018, Obble continues to deliver personalized solutions to all clients in need of shared hosting or VPS hosting services. The office is in Melbourne, and its server is Sydney, Australia. In 2019, the brand added web design to its list of service offerings.
Features and Ease of Use
As a customer, you can expect the following as a part of your Obble web hosting package:
- One-click app installer
- Instant activation
- Free SSL certificate
- Email accounts
- MySQL databases
A dedicated IP address and daily cloud backup are available as optional add-ons. The Obble shared hosting plan is split into Starter, Intermediate, and Unlimited. The starter plan, designed for personal websites, has a 10GB disk space allowance and can only host one website. The intermediate plan has a 100GB disk space allowance and can host two websites. The unlimited plan, however, is lacking as it only allows hosting for five websites. There are also no limits to disk space, the number of MySQL databases, and the number of emails allowed.
Obble does not publicly state the bandwidth limits (if any) on its website hosting plans. However, it clearly highlights a bespoke hosting service by encouraging customers unable to find a suitable plan to reach out.
There are three VPS hosting packages available with the brand: the Basic, Standard, and Premium plans. The basic VPS plan offers 2GB RAM and 35GB storage space, while the premium VPS plan offers 8GB RAM and 140GB storage space. All VPS plans have unlimited bandwidth.
Customers can buy new domain names or transfer existing ones. There are more than two-dozen domain name suffix options available during the registration process. The brand does not advertise free domain names as a part of any of the packages.
Pricing and Support
Obble’s web hosting and VPS packages are averagely priced with prices listed in Australian Dollars. The brand does not offer a free-test period, but there is a seven-day money-back guarantee. The billing cycle is flexible and you can choose from monthly billing up to triennial billing. Discounts kick in only when you select an annual billing cycle or higher.
Customers have the option to contact support by submitting a ticket or making a call request. The provided information does not include a phone number or a contact email address. Although a live chat function is available, it is currently offline. Additionally, the website’s knowledge base contains only a few posts. I initiated a ticket and promptly received a response in slightly over two hours.
The brand guarantees 99% uptime on all hosting plans, but there is no offer of 24/7 support.
