Low Cost Hosting in Spain
Mialojamiento Web has been providing low cost web hosting services since 2006. They are the division of a larger tech company called Idealia Technology and Communications SL. The focus of this division is low cost web hosting, which they seem to be doing a good job with. You can only get shared hosting packages and VPS options, but they are pretty nice packages so most people will be able to find an option that works for them. The company is based in Spain and it seems that is where their servers are as well, though they don't really come right out and say that, which is unfortunate.
In addition to having several shared and several VPS options, they also offer domain registration and services for SSL and SMS. Their website is easy to navigate and the support teams (both customer support and tech support) will be there if you need them. If you're just looking to start a small blog that won't ever need anything beyond a VPS, this is not a bad company to consider.
Uptime & Reliability
Good Stable Hosting
The hosting with this company is quite stable, which is the most important thing. They respond to trouble tickets very quickly and are staffed 24/7 so you'll get the support you need when you need it. Based on what they say on their website and what I've read on other places it seems that for at least some of their hosting packages they are bordering on 'overselling' the servers. This can cause some slow response times when one or more of the sites on the server you are on is getting a lot of traffic. This is a risk with any shared hosting solution, which is why it is so important for the hosting company to manage it properly.
Reasonable Hosting features
When a company markets itself as a 'low-cost' hosting provider you almost expect that they won't have very good features, but that is really not the case here. While they are limited to shared and VPS, they don't skimp on the features that they provide in these areas. For example, with the shared hosting you can choose from 'WordPress Hosting' which is going to be fairly entry level for just blogging, 'Top Hosting' which is obviously for larger or busier sites and then 'SSD Hosting' which is a nice option for those who prefer solid state drives. Even with the lowest level package you'll get 5 gigs of disk space, which is more than enough. All their hosting is unlimited in terms of bandwidth, which is nice. You can even have up to 5 domains on the entry level package.
When you click on their VPS hosting link you will see that as of this writing they have not completed filling it out. It seems that they are just moving to offer this option and haven't completed their website for it yet. You can call them to make a custom plan, however, so if you really need a VPS you can get one that way.
Good Tech Support
The technical support from this company is very good. You can get in touch with them through a ticketing system (preferred option), through live chat or through the phone. They are staffed 24/7 and will get back with you with a good solution very quickly. They don't have as much documentation and self-help options as you might want but most people will be more than satisfied with the level of support they get.
Low Costs for What You Get
The company markets itself as a low-cost hosting provider and they do a pretty good job of living up to that claim. They certainly aren't the cheapest I have ever seen though. For the entry level 'WordPress' hosting package it is 3.95 Euro per month. Many hosting companies have prices at this level, but you typically don't get quite as many features so it is a good price. You can browse around through the other sections on the site to see that pretty much all of their shared hosting packages are going to stay under 10 Euro per month..
Great Hosting in Spain
If you want shared hosting (or VPS) in Spain and you don't need room to grow, this may be the perfect company for you. They have been in business for about ten years as of this writing and have earned an overall positive reputation in the industry. While there are some concerns, there is really on doubt that most people will be quite satisfied with the level of service they are provided.
