UniWeb is a Norwegian company that has been in the hosting business since 2000. It’s owned by Digital Garden AS and provides a multitude of web-related solutions including web hosting, domain registration, website building, and e-commerce services. UniWeb has three data centers in Norway and an elegant website in Norwegian.
Features and Ease of Use
UniWeb offers Linux-based shared hosting for small websites and businesses of all sizes as well as VPS and WordPress hosting. Let’s take a look into some of UniWeb’s shared hosting features:
- Unlimited traffic
- SSD disk storage
- Custom control panel
- Regular daily backups
- One-click installer
UniWeb doesn’t offer commonly known control panels like cPanel, but it includes its own developed control panel within all plans, which it claims to be faster, more redundant, and more secure. The one-click installer is a very useful touch to save you time and effort when installing your favorite applications directly from the control panel such as WordPress, Joomla, Drupal.
All hosting plans run on SSD drives with a minimum of 1 GB storage and no bandwidth restrictions. The company also manages and back up your files. UniWeb also focuses on security and boasts robust DDoS protection from Broadnet. It’s also the only supplier in the country to have three data centers (in Oslo).
Climbing up the ladder, UniWeb provides four KVM Linux-based VPS hosting packages with SSD web space varying from 10 GB and up to 80 GB, RAM from 512 MB to 8,192 MB, and bandwidth between 250 GB and 1 TB giving you full control over your server.
Pricing and Support
UniWeb’s prices aren’t the cheapest out there, but they’re affordable considering the features and quality of service provided. Its web hosting plans come in three sizes, Small Linux, Large Linux, and Extra Large Linux. The entry plan is suitable for small websites and personal blogs as it includes 1 GB disk space and 50 MB database.
All prices are in Norwegian Krone and billed annually. Unfortunately, the website doesn’t mention anything about refunds or money-back guarantee.
Getting in touch with UniWeb’s customer service should be easy as there are different channels to contact them including email, phone, social media, and ticket. Though it’s stated that they respond within half an hour, it’s been more than three days and I haven’t heard from them.
