No1 Web Hosting appears to be a relatively new hosting company based in South Africa that has been in business for at least a couple of years. The company presents a small set of hosting plans. Like its name, the company strives to be number 1 in hosting by making its customers a priority through "dedicated support" and "personalized attention."
No1 Web Hosting company offers its customers only shared hosting plans. Its plans come with many features, including some that are "unlimited." The company provides relatively low cost and introductory hosting plans whose primary target market are individuals and small businesses in South Africa.
No1 Web Hosting offers a set of shared hosting plans. These plans allow for a certain amount of bandwidth and disk space (some offer unlimited amounts) along with support for additional domains and subdomains. Customers needing to send emails can create accounts through the plan. Since email supports different protocols such as POP, SMTP, and IMAP, customers can setup third party tools including Microsoft Outlook to check their emails. In addition to supporting different protocols, other email features include forwarding, auto responders, and anti-spam filters. The shared plans also feature support for multiple scripting languages including PHP, Ruby on Rails, Curl, and PERL all of which are helpful for developers. Customers can adjust settings through the cPanel interface and install scripts with a single click using Softaculous. As an added convenience, it is also possible for customers to collect website statistics through AWStats and install individual PERL modules.
Though the company does not offer much detail on its infrastructure including the types of servers it uses or their location, most likely No1 Web Hosting may be using Linux-based servers based on supported features and pricing. The company is also confident enough in its infrastructure to offer a 99.9% uptime guarantee.
No1 Web Hosting provides support for customers in a few ways. Customers can get their problems addressed and issues resolved by contacting the company through support tickets or contact form. Besides contacting the company, customers can consult with the knowledgebase and FAQs. Since customers are the company's top priority, support is available 24/7.
To order a plan from No1 Web Hosting, customers must register first before submitting payment. Customers can choose to pay monthly, annually, or semi-annually and those who decide to pay annually could be eligible for a discount. As an added bonus for customers, the company's plans have no setup fees. Customers wanting to try out the plans before committing to a purchase can try one risk-free since the company offers a 30-day money back guarantee. Those ordering unlimited plans are also entitled to a South African domain extension (.co.za).
Ever since No1 Web Hosting opened its doors for business a few years ago, it has been a hosting service provider focused on individuals and businesses in South Africa. The company offers a set of shared hosting plans that support multiple features including cPanel and numerous scripts and programming languages. Some of its plans also have many unlimited features ideal for small businesses and individuals wanting a web presence. Customers looking for "top quality" service at low cost will find No1 Web Hosting an ideal company for their hosting needs.
