OverCloud is a small Portuguese company that provides reasonably priced web hosting plans with SSD or HDD storage.

Overview

OverCloud-overview1

Launched in 2012, OverCloud is a Portuguese company that provides both web hosting products (with domain registration) and security solutions. Its well-organized Portuguese language website can be switched into more than ten languages, including English, but these appear to be automated translations.

Features and Ease of Use

OverCloud doesn’t do dedicated servers. It offers SSD and HDD Linux hosting plans plus domain registration and cloud hosting. Its web hosting plans come with the following features:

  • 99.99% uptime guarantee
  • Unlimited monthly traffic
  • cPanel control panel
  • SSD storage
  • Daily backups
  • Free SSL certificates

You can build your website using the bundled Page Builder or by installing your favorite CMS (WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, or Magento) with just one click.

You also get a free SSL certificate and premium anti-spam to keep your website data safe and secure.

Pricing and Support

Of the two types of hosting offered by OverCloud, the SSD hosting is more expensive and provides less storage space than the HDD plans. The six SSD plans come with 5 GB to 150 GB storage whereas the HDD plans provide 15 GB to 300 GB storage.

OverCloud’s payment methods include PayPal, bank transfer, and cheque. There is no refund policy as far as I can see.

For self-support, OverCloud’s website includes a minimal knowledge base:

Bottom line on OverCloud

With its competitive prices and useful features, OverCloud could be a worthy competitor to other European hosting companies. However, it is let down by limited self-support resources and lackluster pre-sales support responses.

Pros

  • Free SSL certificate
  • Affordable prices
  • SSD storage
  • 99.99% uptime

Cons

  • No pre-sales customer support response
  • No clear refund policy

For Portuguese SSD and HDD hosting, head over to OverCloud.
