Italian hosting provider WebHosting.it offers a wide range of web-related products and services, including shared hosting, CMS hosting, reseller hosting, VPS hosting, dedicated servers, SEO consultancy, website development, domain registration, online marketing, and SMS marketing. That’s a lot!
This company started way back in 1998 (the early days of the web) and its well-designed website is in Italian.
Features and Ease of Use
WebHosting.it offers three shared hosting packages that have the following features in common:
- SSD storage
- Free SSL certificate
- 99.99% uptime guarantee
- Custom control panel
- Regular automatic backups
- DDoS protection
WebHosting.it’s user-friendly custom control panel lets you take full control over all aspects of your website, including domains and backup intervals. This comes with a one-click installer to help you install popular CMS applications such as WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, PrestaShop, Magento, and more.
You don’t have to use the custom control panel because WebHosting.it also offers the popular cPanel and Plesk panels that you can use to design as well as manage your website. If you don’t want to design your website yourself, you can call on WebHosting.it’s expert web development team. Either way, you don’t need web design or programming skills to create your web presence.
Pricing and Support
WebHosting.it’s three shared hosting packages are Silver Formula, Gold Formula, and Platinum Formula. The cheapest Silver Formula plan with limited disk space and traffic is good enough for amateurs and small website owners. At the other end of the scale, the Gold Formula and Platinum Formula plans come with unlimited disk space and monthly traffic for multiple websites with heavy traffic.
WebHosting.it is reasonably priced for a European provider. You can pay by bank transfer, credit card, or PayPal, and you get a 30-day money-back guarantee that gives you some time to evaluate the service.
You can use WebHosting.it’s knowledge base for self-support or you can contact the company via telephone, ticket, email, or live chat. My pre-sales support experience was mixed. Having received no reply to my test ticket and exploratory email, I got a live chat agent to admit that those questions had been received, but the team didn’t have time to answer them.
So, I asked the same questions again via the live chat channel and got the answers I wanted.
