Web-Server is a privately-owned Hungarian company with an outstanding 15 years of online experience. Its ultimate aim is to provide fast, stable and straightforward services to small businesses and web developers using the latest technologies. Although its attractive website translates well enough into other languages (particularly) English, you might struggle if you don’t speak Hungarian.
Features and Ease of Use
Web-Server’s web hosting packages are somewhat confusingly named ‘Storage’ packages. To make matters more confusing, the Hungarian phrase “TÁRHELY CSOMAGOK” (meaning “storage packages”) translates to English as “DISCONTINUED PACKAGES” in my web browser. Don’t despair! This hosting vendor is alive and well, and its hosting packages are available at the time of this review.
As long as you choose the M, L or XL storage package, Web-Server will provide you with an easy-to-use Website Builder with free templates to make your website-building job much easier.
Other value-added features that come with the storage (hosting) packages include:
- 99.9% guaranteed availability
- Free SSL certificates
- Daily data backups (on request) stored for 30 days
- Domain registration
- 50 MB to 25 GB storage
- 24/7 security monitoring with BitNinja
- FTP access
- Cron jobs
Web-Server’s hosting packages also support the usual CMS software such as WordPress, Joomla, and Drupal.
If shared hosting is not for you, you can alternatively opt for a virtual server rental option that comes with Hungary’s biggest available bandwidth and with the Debian/Ubuntu operating system pre-installed. RAID storage and daily backups ensure the security of your data.
Pricing and Support
Web Server offers five web hosting plans, three of which – M, L, and XL – are priced incredibly fairly compared with competitors. They come with a 30-day money-back guarantee policy, and you also get an eBook as a goodwill gesture, which will help you choose the right domain.
When I went to check out, I discovered that a two-year commitment was 20% cheaper than what 2x the annual cost would be.
Web-Server offers 24-hour support, and you can contact the company via telephone, email, or online form, but (as far as I can tell) not live chat. You should be assured of swift support from Web-Server since its support warranty will credit you with 10 MB extra storage space if you don’t receive a response within 8.9 minutes:
Existing customers can log in, in Hungarian or English, presumably for additional support resources. And Web-Server also publishes an up-to-date blog with tutorials and handy hints on getting the most from this host.
