This hosting vendor has an identity crisis. Its logo and website footer say “Web-Info”, its help page says “DJA.PL Hosting” (which corresponds with its domain name), and its Facebook page (at /cphosting) says “CPanel Hosting”. Since the more prevalent name seems to be Web-Info, including on the contact page, that’s the name I’ll stick with. So…
Polish web hosting provider Web-Info was founded in 2003. Its website can be switched from Polish into English, but it looks like only one of the pages is actually in English.
Features and Ease of Use
Web-Info offers a wealth of hosting packages, website building tools, and domain registration services. Its hosting plans come with these core features:
- 99.9% uptime guarantee
- Backup options available
- Domain registration available
- Free SSL certificate included
- Up to 20,000 MB disk space
- Up to 50 GB transfer per month
Web-Info’s web hosting is managed using the popular cPanel control panel which includes the Installatron installer for CMS, e-commerce, and other website software. You also have access to the RVsitebuilder website builder as an optional extra, so you can create a web presence without specialized technical knowledge.
At the other end of the expertise spectrum, you get PHP (versions 5 and 7), FTP access, MySQL databases, and phpMyAdmin. You can also use Cron jobs to schedule scripts to run regularly rather than having to execute them manually every time.
Hosting plans include performance-enhancing features such as SSD storage (for speed and reliability), CloudLinux (to isolate you from other hosted users), and the Cloudflare CDN (to speed up page loading and protect you against some kinds of cyberattacks).
Pricing and Support
Web-Info’s base plan is very affordable, but the higher plans quickly become expensive. All tiers provide the same features but the resources increase in line with the prices. You could grab a bargain if you can get by with one domain, 4,000 MB of disk space, and 10 GB of monthly transfer.
You can only pay for hosting via PayPal (which means credit/debit cards too), and the only billing cycle is annual. The 14-day guarantee gives you two weeks to get out early if anything goes wrong, but you get a much longer 60-day money-back guarantee with the website builder.
Contact customer services by telephone, email, or live chat, but note that the live chat was offline whenever I wanted to try it. If you have to resort to self-support, you’ll find a reasonably well-stocked (but not very nicely arranged) help section.
