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
- 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.
How much does Viewen cost?Viewen offers plans from $2 to $7. The price depends on which type of hosting plan you choose. You can see the updated pricing table (updated weekly) below.
Which Viewen plan should I get?My recommendation is to start with a cheaper plan. You can always upgrade later on. Viewen can help you with the migration to a more expensive plan. The increase in visitors many times takes longer than expected and you shouldn’t pay a lot of money until the need arises. Of course, your needs may vary, and you can consult with a hosting expert from Viewen here.
How good is Viewen’s customer support?Viewen is not ranked as one of our top web hosts. But that can also be a result of Viewen being a small, under the radar, hosting provider. There are advantages to a small hosting company – as a customer, you are more important to them. You can also check out our comparison of the most popular web hosting services here.
