Expert Overview

UK based shared hosting company

Whizz Hosting is based out of the UK and is dedicated to offering shared hosting packages to their customers.  They only have three options, which makes it extremely simple for people to pick which one they want.  Of course, this also limits their ability to upgrade or get exactly what they need.

From what I can tell, the company does not own their own data center, but simply leases space from a UK based data center provider.  This is often a good way for newer or smaller companies to offer high quality hosting without having to invest millions into their own data center.  It does, however, cause some limitations with what they can control.  For shared hosting, this usually isn't a big deal.

If you're just looking for simple web hosting for a smaller site, this company is not a bad option to work with.  Especially if your customers are in the UK.

Uptime & Reliability

Hosting seems to be nice and stable

I was unable to find any type of uptime or reliability guarantee on their site, which typically means they don't offer one.  For shared hosting, this isn't always a big deal since the issue is normally going to be with site load times and not actually going down.  Since they are leasing the data center space, it is likely that they are using a high quality facility, so the network and power connections should not be an issue.

Regarding site load times, I didn't see anyone complaining about this.  I wasn't able to find many places where people were commenting on this company at all though, which is likely because they are a newer/smaller hosting company.

Features

Quality features for shared hosting

All of the hosting packages come with similar features, the main differences being in the amount of bandwidth and disk space you are allotted.  You will get cPanel, which is the most popular control panel for hosting, especially shared hosting.  They have a one-click installer with more than 280 scripts so you can get things like Presto, WordPress and Joomla up and running in just seconds.

They also keep PHP and mySQL up to date on the latest stable releases, which is important both for running the sites and avoiding security vulnerabilities.  All your data is backed up daily and stored for a minimum of 14 days.

Support

Responsive support teams

When you need technical support you will need to reach out to them through their ticketing system, which is not uncommon with shared hosting.  When you submit tickets they typically respond fast and are able to help you with most types of issues that you are going to face.

When it comes to self-help options, they don't have a knowledge base or other documentation available to help you along the way.

Pricing

Typical pricing for shared hosting

The pricing is not out of line at all with what you would expect to see.  Most people will find that they are getting a fairly good deal, but it really shouldn't be too much of a factor in making your final decision.  If you need shared hosting in the UK, you'll be happy with the price and the features that you get with WhizzHosting.

Summary

Nice hosting if you want a UK shared hosting solution

The bottom line with this company is that there is really not much that sets it apart from the competition, either for the good or the bad.  They are average in almost every way, which isn't always a bad thing.  If you want shared hosting and you want it to be based in the UK, this is a fairly good company to consider.

Pros:

  • cPanel included
  • Easy to choose from just three hosting packages
  • Daily backups

Cons:

  • No uptime guarantee
  • Don't own their own data center
  • Newer company
