With 30,000 customers, more than 100,000 hosted domains, and 125,000 email accounts, UniWeb is one of the largest hosting companies in Norway. As an accredited registrar, it also offers domain registration and e-commerce solutions.

Overview

UniWeb

Norwegian provider UniWeb has been in the hosting business since 2000. It’s owned by Digital Garden AS, and it 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

UniWeb is allegedly the only Norwegian hosting provider with three data centers (in Oslo). It offers Linux-based shared hosting as well as VPS solutions and WordPress hosting. Let’s look at some of UniWeb’s shared hosting features:

  • Unlimited traffic
  • SSD storage
  • Custom control panel
  • Regular daily backups
  • One-click installer

UniWeb’s hosting plans come with its own custom control panel rather than the more familiar cPanel. The one-click installer saves you a lot of time and effort when installing applications such as WordPress, Joomla, and Drupal directly from the control panel.

All hosting plans feature SSD storage and a minimum of 1 GB storage and no bandwidth restrictions. Of the three web hosting plans – Small Linux, Large Linux, and Extra Large Linux – the entry plan’s 1 GB disk space and 50 MB database make it suitable for small websites and personal blogs.

UniWeb backs up your files, and it boasts robust DDoS protection from Broadnet.

If you want to scale up from shared web hosting, you can opt for one of the four KVM Linux-based VPS hosting packages with 10 GB to 80 GB SSD storage, 512 MB to 8,192 MB RAM, and 250 GB to 1 TB bandwidth.

Pricing and Support

UniWeb’s hosting prices are affordable for the features you get, but they’re not the cheapest, although the vendor’s website promises between 47% and 58% off in the first year (depending on the plan). All prices are in Norwegian Krone, and plans are billed annually. Unfortunately, there is no money-back guarantee as far as I can see.

UniWeb’s customer service can be contacted via several channels, including email, telephone, ticket, and social media. Although the stated response time is 30 minutes, I had still not received a response after three days.

Bottom line on UniWeb

UniWeb provides premium hosting packages for all kinds of users. These packages come with unlimited bandwidth, DDoS protection, and SSD disk storage. The prices aren’t as cheap as I would like, and the customer support isn’t as responsive as I thought it would be.

Pros

  • SSD storage
  • A variety of price plans
  • Three data centers
  • Remote assistance

Cons

  • High prices
  • Unresponsive support

Get high-quality Norwegian hosting from UniWeb.
