A web hosting package to suit every project

Every web project is different. We consider certain services to be essential, so these solutions share common features — which is why we offer several different shared hosting plans. Our cloud hosting packages include a free SSL certificate, unlimited traffic, an automatic backup system, and many other features. You can upgrade to another solution at any time, with no service interruptions.

Host a webpage: For a standard webpage, you can choose the free web hosting plan included when you reserve a domain name. With Easy Redirect, you can also use your social networks as a destination webpage linked to your domain name.

Get started with a web hosting plan: Create your first pages and websites at a lower cost with the Kimsufi web solution.

A web hosting plan for multiple websites

Do you manage multiple websites for yourself or your customers, who each have their own web hosting packages? With our multi-domain service, you can link multiple domains on the same hosting plan. You can create multiple databases and directories on your web space as you see fit. With a multi-site solution, centralising your websites on a single web hosting plan is quick, easy and cost-effective.

What are the pros and cons of shared hosting?

Every kind of service and solution has its advantages and disadvantages. For shared hosting plans, the resources will largely depend on your project. Let’s take the example of a professional website for a handicraft company. You will only see advantages to using shared hosting, as it has been specially designed for this type of use. You get an affordable web hosting plan, complete with storage space, a database for your content management system (CMS), an SSL certificate, and more.
For an e-commerce website, the Performance Hosting plan will do the job perfectly. However, as your business grows, you may think bigger and need to build an infrastructure that better manages it. At this point, you can switch to a higher performance solution that gives you more flexibility for administration. For these needs, you can choose from a range of solutions: our virtual private servers (VPS), dedicated servers or Public Cloud instances.

The differences between shared and dedicated hosting

The main difference between a shared hosting plan and a dedicated hosting plan is the environment it offers. On shared hosting, you share a server with other customers. This reduces the configuration and performance options available, as they must be suitable for all users.
On a dedicated hosting solution, such as a bare-metal dedicated server, you are the only one in control. All resources are allocated to you, and your environment is isolated from other services. This makes it a good choice for any project that requires advanced performance, or a very specific technical configuration. However, you will be responsible for managing it — which means you must have the technical skills required to do so.
