With more than ten years of experience in the industry, QuickWeb offers a decent set of feature-rich hosting solutions at affordable prices. However, its pre-sales support response (or lack of) leaves something to be desired.

Overview

QuickWeb

New Zealand-based QuickWeb was founded in 2008, and today it specializes in shared hosting, virtual and dedicated servers, and domain registration. QuickWeb’s servers sit in New Zealand, the United States, the United Kingdom, and Germany, and its English-language website displays prices in New Zealand dollars or U.S. dollars depending on the chosen location.

Features and Ease of Use

QuickWeb sells two types of shared hosting (NZ Web Hosting and US Web Hosting), with three plans for each locationNo Frills, Superior, and Geek.

Although the New Zealand hosting packages provide lower resources (disk space and bandwidth) than the United States ones, they come with a few additional features. The hosting features you can expect to find, with the extra New Zealand features shown bold, are:

  • 99.9% uptime guarantee
  • Cloudflare CDN and DDoS protection
  • Free SSL certificate
  • cPanel control panel
  • Softaculous installer
  • SSD storage
  • CloudLinux OS
  • KSplice Linux kernel extension

The popular cPanel control panel allows you to manage all aspects of your hosting: files, FTP accounts, databases, email accounts, domains, backup intervals, and more. The incorporated Softaculous application installer lets you install lots of additional applications — like WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, Magento, PrestaShop, TYPO3, and phpBB — with just a few clicks.

The Cloudflare CDN not only improves page loading speeds by caching content close to your customers but also protects against some kinds of cyberattacks.

Pricing and Support

The NZ Web Hosting plans are cheaper than the US Web Hosting plans, but all plans are pretty affordable compared with New Zealand and international competitors.

You can pay by PayPal, credit/debit cards, or bank deposit (only New Zealand) on monthly or annual billing cycles. First-time subscribers get a 30-day money-back guarantee.

QuickWeb’s communication channels are limited to email, support tickets, and (supposedly) live chat. Unfortunately, I found that the live chat was offline for weeks, and my test ticket submission received no response. It’s a good thing, then, that there is an informative self-support knowledge base:

Bottom line on QuickWeb

From its multiple server locations to its feature-packed plans at affordable prices, QuickWeb seems to hit a lot of the high notes. However, the lack of a pre-sales support response sets it back.

Pros

  • 30-day money-back guarantee
  • Cloudflare CDN
  • Multiple server locations

Cons

  • Unresponsive pre-sales support
  • No reseller hosting
