Oklan was founded in 2007. Its Spanish-language website sells Linux and Windows shared hosting services, VPS, cloud hosting, dedicated servers, email services, SSL certificates, web design, and domain name registration. It has hosted over 1,100 projects to date, on servers in Spanish and French data centers.
Features and Ease of Use
Oklan’s four hosting packages — Personal, Professional, Advanced and Professional Plus — provide these features:
- 99.9% uptime guarantee
- 5 GB to 100 GB disk space
- Unlimited bandwidth
- Daily, weekly, and monthly automatic backups
- Free domain with some plans
- Up to three hosted domains
- Let’s Encrypt SSL
All plans also provide antivirus, antispam, email autoresponders, unlimited mail directs, and unlimited mail aliases. Optional (addon) services include additional mailboxes, domains, and dedicated IP addresses.
The Plesk control panel makes it easy to manage your web files. It includes a one-click installer for popular content management and other programs, including WordPress, PrestaShop, Magento, Drupal, Joomla, and Moodle.
At the higher end of the expertise spectrum, you can code a website with various programming languages, such as Ruby, Perl, Python, or PHP. The underlying database would be MySQL, which you can manage with phpMyAdmin.
Pricing and Support
Oklan’s shared hosting packages are priced low, but you’ll pay slightly higher renewal prices. You can take advantage of a seven-day free trial (to try before you buy) and a 30-day money-back guarantee (to get you out and pay you back if anything goes wrong initially). Other perks include free domain registration, a free SSL certificate, and free website migration.
VPS and dedicated server prices are competitive but not cheap.
One downside is that you can’t purchase plans online, so you have to contact the company first, which you can do by telephone, ticket, or email. I received a rapid reply to my exploratory email:
Oklan also offers some self-support resources.
