Shared hosting for Portuguese customers
Registar.pt is a Portuguese company that is focused on providing shared hosting services to their customers. They were founded in 2001 and have been growing nicely since then. They market the fact that 70% of new customers come from referrals of existing customers, which they say shows that they give a good service and their customers are happy.
I could not find direct information about their data center, though their site is not in English so I had to use a translation tool which may have some things missing. From what I can tell it appears to be in Portugal with their main offices. They may be leasing space from another data center, though that is not 100% clear from what I could find.
Whatever the case, they provide fairly nice shared hosting packages that can handle basic sites and even some more advanced options for individuals or small businesses.
Uptime & Reliability
Good stable hosting with few reported problems
From what I can tell this company offers stable hosting that doesn't experience many problems at all. Most current and former customers who have mentioned anything about their experience, however, were not writing in English so again, this could just be due to a lack of available information. From what I can tell, however, most of the customers are happy with the service they get.
Simple features for simple hosting
Since they aren't offering any type of advanced hosting, they don't really have too many advanced features either. Each package, however, comes with everything you'll need to get up and running quickly. The hard drive and bandwidth limitations seem fair and most customers that need this type of hosting won't need anything more. They also let you choose between cPanel and Plesk for your control panel. This is a great feature that most shared hosting companies aren't providing any more.
Very little information available
This company does not publish much of any information about the technical support they provide. This typically means that they have you go through a ticketing system in order to get any help. This isn't necessarily a bad thing, and is not uncommon for shared hosting providers. From what other users have said, the support is pretty good.
They do have some nice help files and other documents that will help you get everything set up and configured the way you want it.
Fair pricing for shared hosting
The pricing is at or below the industry standard for this type of hosting. This is based on the currency conversion since they have them priced in Euros. Overall, however, you won't likely be overly impressed with the prices, but at the same time you won't be put off by them either.
Not bad for those who want hosting in Portugal
This hosting company really doesn't have too much to offer that makes it stand out, other than the fact that it is located in Portugal. For individuals or businesses that are looking for hosting in this area, it may be worth checking into because the services aren't bad and the prices seem fair.
