Viewen is an American website hosting provider with low-priced plans (and maybe a free one). I found its pre-sales support to be satisfactory, but I think its seven-day money-back guarantee is too short.

Overview

Viewen

Although Viewen has existed as a company since 2009, it started offering web hosting more recently in 2016. This said, its founder had been working with web hosting since 2011.

This American company provides cloud-based simplified solutions to worldwide clients. However, while the website claims to offer a wide range of web hosting services, I only found two of them (Shared Hosting and VPS Hosting) plus some additional installation services.

Viewen’s website is in English.

Features and Ease of Use

According to its product page, Viewen offers four Linux shared hosting packages and five VPS packages. However, the shopping cart advertises three more shared hosting packages, including a free one which is “out of stock”. This notwithstanding, the advertised Linux hosting plans typically provide you with:

  • 100% uptime guarantee
  • 25 GB unlimited storage space
  • Unlimited bandwidth
  • cPanel control panel
  • One to unlimited websites
  • Two to unlimited subdomains
  • 10 to unlimited FTP accounts
  • Two to unlimited MySQL databases
  • Five to unlimited email accounts
  • phpMyAdmin
  • PHP 5.6, 7.0, 7.1, 7.2
  • SMTP, IMAP, POP3
  • Fraud, virus and spam protection

All packages provide the Softaculous installer for a wide range of programs, including WordPress, Drupal, and Zoomla. At the other end of the expertise spectrum, Cron jobs can be used to schedule scripts to run regularly rather than having to execute them individually each time.

The CloudLinux OS isolates you from other hosted users, and the RAID 10 configuration helps protect you against disk data disasters.

Pricing and Support

Viewen’s Linux shared hosting packages are cheap. You can pay for them on a monthly, biannual, or annual basis in USD or INR via various methods such as PayPal and Instamojo. You get a short seven-day money-back guarantee that will get you out within a week if you change your mind.

24/7 customer support can be summoned via telephone, ticket, or email. I received a reply to my test ticket after about 18 hours:

For self-support, the knowledge base contains only six entries.
