According to its Facebook page, British hosting company Vision Internet Limited started its journey in Cheshire in January 2000. It offers several affordable hosting plans along with domain registration, transfer, and renewal services. The company also offers web design services, and its own dated-looking website is in English.
Features and Ease of Use
Vision Internet offers six Linux-based hosting plans: Home Plus, Advanced, Premier, Professional, Pro200, and Pro-SSL (with a dedicated IP address). These plans vary in terms of disk space (500 MB to 10 GB), monthly bandwidth (10 GB to 200 GB), the number of websites allowed (1 to 10), POP3/IMAP email accounts (30 to 200), and MariaDB/MySQL databases (2 to 20). All six plans also come with:
- Secure cPanel
- Email forwarding, aliases, and filters
- CGI/Perl, PHP 5.6.x, and ionCube Loader
- Server Side Includes (SSI)
- Web-based file manager
- 24/7 server monitoring
- Daily backups
- Hotlink, spam, and virus protection
- GD library
In addition to the aforementioned plans, Vision Internet also offers four reseller hosting packages – Reseller-S10, Reseller-G10, Reseller-G15, and Reseller-G20 – with the last plan being an upgrade-only option.
One of Vision Internet’s notable features is its unrestricted (and unlimited with some higher plans) FTP accounts that you can manage via the cPanel control panel. Plans also come with pre-installed scripts for WordPress, phpBB, Joomla, and osCommerce.
AWStats and Webalizer let you check your site statistics to gain useful insights. The company offers 99.95% guaranteed network availability, and it hints at the fact that 100% uptime would not be unusual in any given month.
Pricing and Support
Vision Internet’s hosting plans are affordably priced. You can pay for them annually in GBP via credit/debit card or check (cheque).
You can contact the company via an online contact form or email. I received a quick reply to my test email:
For self-support, Vision Internet’s website includes a ‘Support’ page with links to tutorials and several sets of FAQs.
