V&Web provides a range of hosting services from hundreds of data centers around the world. However, I'd feel better if the information about its uptime and money-back guarantees was consistent.

Overview

vandweb main

V&Web is a division of Goldy Host Technology Co. Ltd., which was founded in 2005 with a vision to be a global Internet Data Center. It is based in China and Taiwan, and it has partnerships with approximately 700 data centers around the world. This provider targets a global customer base from its English-language website.

Features and Ease of Use

V&Web offers a range of hosting services, including shared web hosting, dedicated servers, VPS, cloud servers, and colocation. The core inclusions you can expect to find are:

  • 99.9% or 99.99% uptime guarantee
  • An optional data backup service
  • Unlimited websites 
  • Free SSL certificates
  • Up to 2 TB monthly traffic

The shared hosting plans support PHP (versions 5 and 7), a free CDN, MySQL databases, and the cPanel control panel. There is also a one-click installer for WordPress and “other programs,” but otherwise you won’t be overwhelmed with features.

Since V&Web claims a presence in around 700 global data centers, your content can be served from the location closest to your customer base, which should improve the page loading speeds. Depending on which web page you believe, you get a 99.9% or 99.99% uptime guarantee. Therefore, uptime should be at or above the industry average, although there is no service level agreement (SLA) as far as I can see.

Pricing and Support

V&Web

V&Web’s shared hosting prices are okay. The base plan is cheap, but the highest tier packages get pretty pricey. Although a CDN and SSL are included, you have to pay extra for a domain name.

The money-back guarantee is as uncertain as the uptime guarantee; it could be a 7-day guarantee or a 30-day guarantee, depending which page web page you believe.

24/7 customer service can be obtained via email, ticket, or Skype. There is also a live chat popup, but it was offline whenever I wanted to try it. The only publicly available self-support resource seems to be a small FAQ section.

Bottom line on V&Web

V&Web offers a range of hosting services, so you can scale up to a VPS or dedicated server when you outgrow your shared hosting plan. My only slight concern is the conflicting information on this vendor’s website regarding its uptime and money-back guarantees.

Pros

  • An affordable base plan
  • A free CDN and SSL certificate
  • Plenty of customer support channels
  • A presence in 700 data centers around the world

Cons

  • Domain names not included
  • Live chat appears to be often offline

Get a wide range of international hosting services from V&Web.
