Bottom line on Register.it

register1

Register.It has been offering online hosting services to Italy for 20 years. They are a subsidiary of the Dada Group and have hosted over 650,000 websites on their platform. Their shared hosting services offer tremendous value with options for both Linux and Windows hosting that’s suitable for all types of websites.

 

Features and Ease of Use

Register.It offers some fantastic features with generous storage and features that will help you build anything from simple blogging sites to robust E-commerce stores. Here are some of the basic features offered:

  • Free domain name (One year)
  • At least 100GB of storage
  • Unlimited bandwidth
  • Regular backups
  • Softaculous auto-installer
  • Support for Prestashop, Magento, and other E-commerce tools

In addition to the basic features above, you can choose from either Windows-based hosting or Linux-based hosting. Here are some of the reasons you might select Windows-based:

Multiplatform – Program in ASP, ASP.net, PHP, Python, Perl, and others.

Microsoft SQL Server 2016 – High memory performance databases with cloud functionality

Clustered Architecture – Sites are hosted on redundant and balanced clusters, meaning your site is always available.

Application Isolation – Applications run separately from others for greater security.

Full Trust Support – Need Full Trust to run certain code on your site? You have it with Windows hosting.

Other users prefer Linux-based hosting, and if so, these are some of the advantages of choosing Linux-based:

Standard cPanel Access – One of the easiest ways to build a site on a Linux platform.

Multidomain – Easily manage multiple sites from a single account

Varnish Cache – Varnish will dramatically speed up the loading of dynamic pages

CloudLinux – Ensure maximum stability for your data and hosting

Register.It offers the Softaculous auto-installer so you can install WordPress, Drupal, and other CRM software to quickly set up your site. Note that a drag and drop builder isn’t available, so this isn’t ideal for beginners. This platform is more suitable for those with more experience in website coding.

 

Pricing and Support

As mentioned earlier, Register.It offers both Windows and Linux hosting, each with three levels of service. The plans have a few differences as outlined below:

SmartAdvancedEnterprise
Storage100GB200GBUnlimited
Domains510Unlimited
Number of Databases1025Unlimited
Max DB Size2GB5GB10GB
Number of Email Boxes25100500
Mailbox Size2GB2GB5GB
SiteLockOptional (Paid)StarterStarter

 

These plans offer some robust features that include a ton of storage and the ability to host multiple domains. They also come with free SSL certificates for all of your sites. You can consider that $30 or more will be saved on each website. The large database size makes this provider ideal for those needing large databases, such as for product or customer databases.

One thing I really like about this provider is that they offer “Elastic Hosting.” With Elastic Hosting, you get a temporary free upgrade to the next highest plan if you are bumping up against the limits of your current hosting plan. This is a free 14-day upgrade. Granted, most personal and small business sites won’t have this problem, but larger E-commerce sites will appreciate this feature.

Register.It offers solid customer support options with phone, live chat, and email support. You can also open a ticket from your cPanel. The one downside to support is that it is only offered from 9 am to 6 pm in the U.K. It would be better if they provided 24-7 support, even if it was just 24-7 chat support.

 

Summary

Register.It offers plans with features that should be more than enough to handle anything you can create. However, if your site grows faster than your hosting, Elastic Hosting has you covered with free temporary plan upgrades.

Pros

  • Free domain (one year)
  • Elastic Hosting
  • Softaculous auto installer
  • Windows or Linux Hosting

Cons

  • Support not 24/7
  • Service not for beginners
