Since starting its journey in 2011, Polish hosting provider Webhosting1st has offered various hosting solutions to meet the needs of different kinds of customers. Its set of services includes shared hosting, VPS, and reseller hosting. Its website can be switched between the English and Polish languages.
Features and Ease of Use
Webhosting1st offers eight shared hosting packages, eight VPS packages, and eight reseller hosting packages, not all of which are presented on the Polish version of the vendor website. The shared hosting packages provide you with:
- SLA-backed 99.9% uptime guarantee
- 1 GB to 50 GB disk space
- 20 GB to 1,000 GB bandwidth
- RAID 10 storage
- DirectAdmin control panel
- Unlimited MySQL databases
- Unlimited FTP accounts
- Unlimited email accounts
- Free SSL certificate
- Support for multiple PHP versions
- Daily backups
The included Softaculous one-click installer helps you install a huge number of popular applications, whether you want an e-commerce application (e.g., Magento), a CMS (e.g., Drupal or WordPress), or another popular application. You also get free DDoS protection to detect and mitigate distributed denial of service attacks.
VPS plans use KVM virtualization for enhanced performance, stability, and reliability. And all servers sit in a Tier III data center.
Pricing and Support
Webhosting1st’s shared hosting packages are dirt cheap, and you can pay for them with Bitcoins or U.S. dollars via PayPal (I have to presume because I couldn’t actually progress to the payments page).
Available billing cycles are monthly (for Business packages) and annual (for Basic packages), and you get a 30-day money-back guarantee that should get you out with a full refund if you change your mind within the first month.
Although Webhosting1st’s 24/7 support team should be contactable by ticket (current customers) or live chat, I failed to receive any response via the live chat channel. It’s a good thing, then, that the knowledge base contains 35 self-support tutorials:
