Based in the Czech Republic, PIPNI offers attractively priced plans that will be particularly attractive if you already know how to build a website.

Overview

pipni main

PIPNI is fine, but fine is not good enough. While PIPNI is a decent web host, you can get better quality hosting at a cheaper price with Hostinger, for example.

Hosting vendor PIPNI is based in the Czech Republic. It offers web hosting and multi-domain hosting with and without SSD-based storage, plus reseller hosting, VPS, blade servers, and microservers.

The PIPNI website can be viewed in Czech and English, but not all the text is translated in the English version.

Features and Ease of Use

PIPNI

While PIPNI presents its SSD-based hosting plans separately from its traditional web hosting plans, the feature sets are similar (if not identical). Here I focus on the non-SSD hosting plans that feature:

  • 99.9% guaranteed availability
  • Daily automatic backups
  • Free SSL certificate on some top-tier plans
  • Free domain registration
  • From 1TB to unlimited data transfer

An SSL certificate is essential for your website’s security and to help secure its search engine ranking, so PIPNI offers a Standard or Wildcard SSL certificate for free on some plans.

PIPNI supports several programming and development tools, including PHP, MySQL, and PostgreSQL, plus the Zend Optimizer that improves the performance of PHP applications by a factor of 40% to 100%. Note that there is no support for Python, and this Linux-only host offers no support for Microsoft technologies.

So far, so good (but not great) for expert webmasters, but beginners get no website builder and no one-click installer, so this provider’s plans will be more useful to you if you already know how to build a website using only an HTML editor.

While PIPNI’s web hosting plans provide sufficient storage for more than one website, it also offers multi-hosting plans for web developers and hosting resellers who have hundreds of domains.

Pricing and Support

PIPNI

PIPNI offers a free plan that provides more storage space (10 GB) and bandwidth (1 TB) than you would get on many paid plans. But you get no automatic backup, no uptime guarantee, no free domain registration, no support, and no free SSL certificate.

Despite this vendor’s limitations, not just on the free plan, pricing is where it gets things right. The paid hosting packages range from low-priced to reasonably-priced for the features you get.

You can pay for plans on a monthly basis, and there is a 30-day money-back guarantee for further reassurance.

Customer support can be obtained by telephone, ticket, email, and live chat, but your support options depend on the plan you choose. For example, the lowest paid plan provides only email support, and you have to be on the highest (VIP) plan to take advantage of telephone support. I tried the ticket support route and received responses to my queries.

For self-support, there is a ‘Manual’ FAQ page that contains some answers and very few tutorials.

A Free Domain is included when purchasing any hosting service from PIPNI

Bottom line on PIPNI

If you’re an experienced Linux webmaster looking for Czech hosting, then PIPNI should be put on your list of hosts to look at. If you’re looking for beginner-friendly web building tools, you should probably look somewhere else.
