This is part 2 of the MilesWeb VS CrocWeb article! In this article, we’re going to talk about CrocWeb, and review it. On the last article, we reviewed MilesWeb – the link is here.
Introduction to CrocWeb
A Canadian company, the company has been around for 5 years now, and has a generally good reputation in the web hosting community. Their about page says:
“CrocWeb, established in 2009, is one of the leading Canadian web hosting providers offering first class support and uptime. Our packages are designed for personal, small business and corporate clientele who need quality, prompt assistance and service.”
Indeed, with its nice, clean design and attractive pricing and plans, it seems like a good company indeed!
According to various reviews and forums across the web, CrocWeb seems to have an active account in several forum and also fast support speeds. However, they seem to be lacking in live chat agents. The live chat system was not very good and I did not receive a single response at all in 3 hours. It might just be that since I live in Asia, the timezones are different to those in Canada and they only recruited local support, and if I chatted in Canadian time I would receive a response. It also has a phone number you can call listed on its site.
Plans and Pricing
CrocWeb doesn’t have as many plans as MilesWeb. Also, the plans generally offer less space and value than the plans at MilesWeb. When comparing plans, though, one does have to note that CrocWeb provides “Pure SSD Drives” and “Premium Bandwidth”, which probably increased the cost and resulted in faster load speeds.
CrocWeb offers cPanel, one of the best control panel providers in the current market, and Softaculous, an automatic script installer that offers more than 320 scripts. It also uses exciting new technologies such as Litespeed and Cloudlinux.
CrocWeb has a relatively simple website design, and also uses the industry standard billing/ticket support system WHMCS which is easy to use and fast. It provides free cPanel migrations for any customers that are coming from another cPanel host, which is definitely a plus for anyone who is changing hosts!
