Greek company Web Art Design was founded back in 2005. It offers a wide range of solutions such as shared hosting, VPS hosting, reseller hosting, dedicated servers, domain registration, and other related services.
The vendor’s neat and simple website — which is available in Greek and English — makes it easy to navigate to all required information. All prices are displayed in euros.
Features and Ease of Use
Web Art Design’s four shared hosting packages are called Starter, Small Business, Business Pro, and Unlimited. Although there are minor differences between the plans, they have these features in common:
- Unlimited bandwidth
- Unlimited SSD storage (except for Starter package)
- 99.99% uptime guarantee
- Free SSL certificate
- Daily backups
- cPanel and Softaculous
- Cron jobs
All shared hosting plans come with the latest version of the popular cPanel control panel, which provides a user-friendly interface for managing your website files, FTP accounts, email accounts, domains, and more. This incorporates the Sofaculous one-click installer for popular CMS and other applications such as WordPress, Magento, Drupal, Joomla, PrestaShop, TYPO3, and phpBB.
At the higher end of the expertise spectrum, you can use Cron jobs to schedule scripts to run regularly rather than having to execute them manually every time.
All of Web Art Design’s servers use the CloudLinux operating system that isolates you from the adverse effects of other hosted users so that your website is unaffected.
Pricing and Support
Web Art Design offers reasonable prices compared to the average European and international markets, but it’s not the cheapest host. All plans apart from the Starter plan can be bought on a monthly, quarterly, semi-annual, annual, or biennial basis by bank transfer or PayPal. If you’re tempted to go for a two-year sign-up, you’ll be pleased to hear that the 15-day free trial gives you two weeks to try before you buy.
For self-support, the knowledge base includes tutorials for most major topics, and each service has its own set of frequently asked questions. Alternatively, you can contact the technical support team via telephone, ticket, email, or live chat. Remote support is also available, via TeamViewer.
Although the live chat never seems to be online, I’m happy to say that I received an almost instant response to my exploratory email:
