SJR is a modern Tunisian website hosting provider. I couldn't really find fault with this vendor, apart from a few broken links and some essentials at extra cost.

Overview

SJR

SJR is a Tunisian website hosting provider that was founded in 2010 and has now registered more than 10,000 domains. This host has a very modern website which is available only in French. 

Features and Ease of Use

SJR offers the full range of website hosting services, from shared hosting to dedicated server rentals. Its shared hosting plans come with the following features as standard:

  • 99.9% uptime guarantee
  • Automatic daily backups
  • Free domain registration
  • Up to 10 databases 
  • Free SSL certificate
  • Up to 50 GB disk space 
  • Unlimited monthly bandwidth

SJR’s hosting accounts are managed using the popular cPanel control panel. Most experts will already have experience of cPanel, and beginners should find it easy to learn. You also get a one-click installer for 450 apps (compared with the 100 that you get with many other hosts). At the more expert end of the scale, developers can create a dynamic website with the classic PHP + MySQL combo.

Performance enhancements come in the form of SSD storage (which is faster and more reliable than traditional HDD storage) and the LiteSpeed Web Server (which is faster than the standard Apache).

Pricing and Support 

SJR’s prices are line with (or a little lower than) the competitors. The prices are particularly appealing when you consider the features and included resource quotas, but beware that the checkout page will invite you to pay extra for some essentials such as an SSL certificate, the Weebly website builder, SiteLock website security, SpamExperts email security, and CodeGuard backups. 

You can pay for plans on monthly, quarterly, or yearly billing cycles, with discounts for the longer commitments. You’ll feel better about signing up for a full year when you hear that there is a 30-day money-back guarantee to get you out early if you change your mind.

Self-support resources are somewhat disappointing, consisting of a knowledge base containing just ten frequently asked questions. You can access one-to-one support via telephone, ticket, email, or Facebook Messenger. A support agent assisted me in English via Messenger:
