Expert Overview

Simple Shared Hosting

Smart web is a shared hosting company that serves people throughout Europe and the Middle East.  They really seem to try to keep the services they offer quite simple so that people don't need to be web hosting experts just to run a site.  This makes them ideal for small businesses, personal blogs and things like that.  Their hosting also appears to be of good quality and from what I can find, most customers are very happy with their overall level of service.

Uptime & Reliability

Good Stable Hosting

This is a company that only provides shared hosting and they seem to do a good job with it.  They have a 99.9% uptime guarantee and from what I can tell they don't have any issues meeting that SLA.  They also allocate you server resources for your hosting, much like a VPS, which can help provide a more stable environment.

Features

Easy to Understand Hosting

When you go to the hosting page you will see that they offer four different options, each with a very clear list of features.  The entry level option gives you 2 gigs of disk space, 20 email accounts, 20 MySQL databases, free setup, daily backups and cPanel.  For the highest end option you get 30 gigs of disk space and unlimited everything else, which is nice.  All their packages have unlimited bandwidth.

There really isn't much else to say about their features other than that they do offer a good package for a fair price.

Support

Good Tech Support

Their tech support teams are there 24/7 through their ticketing system.  They also offer nice video tutorials for learning how to do things and setting your site up properly.  Their knowledgebase also contains a lot of useful information to help people get going on the web.

Pricing

Average Pricing

The pricing is in the South African Rand.  It starts at 49 per month, which is a little over $3 per month.  For the highest end option you'll be paying 299 Rand a month, which is just under $20.  For what you're getting, these are pretty reasonable prices.  Certainly not the most expensive out there, and also not the cheapest.

Summary

Nice Shared Hosting Company

Overall this is a very nice shared hosting company.  They aren't for high end sites or anything, but if you just want to run a site without any trouble, they can meet your needs.  Most people will be very happy with the level of service they provide, especially if there is no need to upgrade to a higher end hosting platform in the future.

Pros:

  • 99.9% Uptime Guarantee
  • Simple Hosting

Cons:

  • Only Shared Hosting
