Irish web hosting provider WebAngel was established in 2007 to provide high-quality services at low prices. Aside from shared web hosting, it offers an extensive range of turnkey applications that can be pre-installed on your virtual machine to save you a lot of time when deploying your I.T. solutions.
WebAngel’s website is in English, but its control panel supports eighteen additional languages.
Features and Ease of Use
WebAngel offers four shared web hosting and nine Xen-powered VPS hosting plans. With the shared plans, you get:
- 300 GB to 4,500 GB bandwidth
- 10 GB to 100 GB disc space
- 3 to 99 databases
- 50 to 500 email accounts
On the plus side, this host offers you free website migration, with WebAngel crediting you for the balance of time (up to six months) that you were set to stay with your old host. On the minus side, there is no website builder and no auto-installer as far as I can see, but servers are configured for many popular applications such as WordPress.
I couldn’t deduce how many websites you’re allowed to host, and I didn’t find any mention of SSL (which I’ve come to expect with most hosts these days).
Thanks to Xen virtualization, which is OS-neutral, WebAngel lets you choose your preferred operating system. The cloud solutions are extremely flexible and infinitely scalable, so you can quickly scale up or down your RAM, CPU, storage, and bandwidth resources.
Pricing and Support
WebAngel’s shared hosting plans are competitively priced in euros (excluding VAT), but I couldn’t determine the available payment methods without filling out an extensive application form. According to the vendor’s home page, you get 14 days to change your mind, which is half the time you get with many other hosts.
You can contact customer services by telephone or email (via an online contact form), but my exploratory email received no response. There are no self-support resources as far as I can see, and WebAngel’s social media posts are disappointing. It hasn’t posted on Twitter since 2017, and its more recent Facebook posts seem to be limited to wishing us well on national holidays.
