Spletnik is a small hosting company that simply isn’t a match for big brands like Hostinger. The bigger hosting companies simply offer a better price for similar configuration.
Spletnik is a Slovenia-based web hosting company that prides itself on being a provider of advanced hosting solutions to its local and international customers. The company was founded in 2004 and has managed to feature in the list of top twenty web hosting companies in Slovenia by a market share of 0.42%. It offers shared web hosting, VPS servers, and domain name registration services, among others. The Spletnik website is only available in Slovene.
Features and Ease of Use
Some of the features found in Spletnik web hosting packages include:
- PHP selector versions 5.3,5.6
- Unlimited MySQL databases
- phpMyAdmin tools
- Unlimited disk space
- Unlimited monthly bandwidth
- Unlimited email accounts
- Unlimited FTP accounts
- Private SSL certificates
Spletnik web hosting solutions run on a wide range of operating systems and web scripts; from Ubuntu and CentOS to OpenVPN access servers and Minecraft servers. All but guaranteeing there is “something for everyone” in its hosting services.
Its VPS servers provide dual power and include CPUs with up to 16 GHz of processing power in a single core and a user-friendly VPS control panel as well as up to 12GB RAM. This allows users to quickly make cron scripts and other server processes ensuring highly reliable hosting solutions.
With Spletnik hosting solutions, customers have access to tools such as PHP selector, phpMyAdmin tools, MySQL databases, and InnoDB support. That said, the vendor does not seem to make efforts to keep these tools updated to the latest versions. For instance, even with the latest version of PHP 7.1/7.2, the vendor has stuck to PHP 5.3 and PHP 5.6.
Spletnik web hosting servers come with regular backups to provide safety in the event of data loss. Moreover, the backups ensure secure copying of data without interfering with the performance of the servers or even the loading speed of its clients’ websites.
Pricing and Support
Spletnik web hosting plans have “no limits” as most of them, even the starter packages, include very few feature limitations. The hosting plans are offered at a standard price in contrast with what other vendors are offering in the market. Its packages come with flexible monthly billing cycles and prices are listed in U.S. dollars.
Spletnik promises to offer high server uptime but does not seem to commit to an uptime guarantee. All the same, it offers a 30-day money-back guarantee.
You can contact the Spletnik support desk only by email. I did not find other support means such as telephone, live chat, or a ticketing system. Although the customer support desk is not available 24/7, I was impressed with its response time. I sent them an email and got comprehensive feedback in about eight hours.
Spletnik has a fairly detailed knowledge base, as well.
