WebHosting.it Introduction

WebHosting.it is headquartered in the historic city of Foligno in the Perugia province of central Italy. Founded in 1999 and serving more than 5,000 customers, WebHosting.it offers shared hosting, virtual private servers, dedicated servers, and a variety of add-on products and services primarily to customers in Italy, although services may be purchased by customers in Europe and around the world.

Services and Specializations

Shared hosting accounts vary based on the amount of storage space and monthly bandwidth allocated to the account. The number of email accounts and subdomains that may be created also vary based on the hosting level selected.

Each shared hosting account is designed to host a single website and only one MySQL database may be created. A commercial script library is also available and makes it easy to install over 300 different web applications such as WordPress and Joomla.

Customers who need to host more than one website may either purchase multiple shared hosting accounts or upgrade to a virtual private server (VPS). VPS customers select between a wide range of operating systems including CentOS, Debian, Ubuntu, Slackware, and more. VPS accounts vary based on the CPU installed in the server and the RAM and disc space allocated to the account. All VPS accounts include free setup, unlimited traffic, and cPanel.

Customers who want full access to all server resources may elect to purchase access to a managed dedicated server. Dedicate servers are offered with either CentOS or Ubuntu operating systems. They also come with a variety of CPU, RAM, and hard drive configurations. All dedicated servers include free setup, unlimited traffic, and five dedicated IP addresses.

Additional services offered by WebHosting.it include:

  • Domain name registration;
  • Website design and development;
  • Search engine optimization and marketing;
  • Internet marketing consultations regarding the use of social media, newsletters, blogs, forms, and more;
  • SMS (text message) marketing, targeting customers in Italy;
  • A variety of remote user-training and IT services.

Infrastructure

The location of WebHosting.it's servers is not disclosed. However, it seems likely that they are located somewhere in Italy. Dell servers are used exclusively and Cisco network routers and switches are used. The datacenter housing the servers is connected to multiple internet service providers and boasts 1 Gbps internal network data transfer speeds.

Support and Customer Service

24 hour support is advertised and is available over the phone or email. Curiously, it does not appear that a knowledgebase or ticketing system is available. WebHosting.it caters specifically to hosting customers based in Italy. While the language spoken by support technicians is not specified, it is reasonable to assume that support is provided in Italian.

Billing and Payment Policies

All products are offered on an annual billing cycle. Payment may be made by bank transfer or credit card and all accounts are renewed automatically unless canceled by email or certified mail.

Summary

While there isn't an excess of technical information provided at WebHosting.it's website, there is enough information to ascertain that the company's servers offer the standard LAMP stack. The shared hosting plans offer limited resources but are priced very competitively and should meet the needs of most individuals and small businesses looking for a place to host a single website.

If you are looking for a hosting provider based in Italy that can provide support in Italian, WebHosting.it is certainly worth considering.
