Owned by The Global Internet company, Poland-based WEBD.pl is an experienced player in the web hosting arena. It was founded in 2001, and it boasts around 70,000 happy customers serviced from a Warsaw data center.
WEBD.pl’s professional but slightly “old school” website displays prices in Polish zlotys, and it can be switched between the Polish and English languages. It advertises quality web hosting, dedicated servers, reseller plans, domain registration, and SSL solutions.
Features and Ease of Use
This provider’s Linux shared hosting plans are suitable for beginners to professional businesses alike. The plans include these features:
- cPanel control panel
- Fantastico installer
- Kopage website builder
- MySQL with remote support
- PHP 5 and PHP 7
- CGI scripts and Cron jobs
- Analog, AWstats, and Webalizer statistics
The six shared hosting plans provide between 2 GB and a generous 1,000 GB disk space, plus 100 GB to unlimited bandwidth. It’s slightly disappointing to see that this host offers SSD storage only with one plan (called the “Mini SSD” plan).
Short on coding skills? No problem. The cPanel control panel provides access to the easy-to-use Kopage website builder that includes plenty of professional templates, fonts, and widgets for blogs, contact forms, slideshows, and shopping carts. Alternatively, the Fantastico installer allows you to populate your website with content from a CMS or another application such as WordPress, Drupal, Joomla, Mambo, or more.
Once your website is up-and-running, the daily, weekly, and monthly backups will keep you safe from potential data disasters. Downtime should be rare, thanks to the 99.9% network uptime guarantee, although this is no better than the industry average.
If shared hosting is not sufficient for your needs, you can place a special order for VPS that gives you more resources and more control.
Pricing and Support
Although WEBD.pl’s shared hosting plans are reasonably priced for the features you get, you can add yet more features at extra cost, such as a dedicated IP address and an SSL certificate.
There is no free domain, no free website migration, and no free trial, as far as I know. The best way to get started with minimal risk may be to sign up for the Mini package for one month. If you do decide to make a more significant commitment, you can cancel within the first 14 days and receive a refund to your bank account (excluding domain registration and SSL costs).
Although there is no live chat, and the support by telephone, ticket, email, or fax is only available during office hours, you can be sure to enjoy responsive support. My exploratory questions were answered within an hour:
For self-support, the Help Center includes video tutorials and frequently asked questions. However, the blog link was broken at the time of writing this review.
