Please note that since this Funio review was first written in 2011, Funio has made substantive changes to the different plans they offer. You can visit Funio.com for more information. We plan on updating this page soon.
Funio is a Montreal web host that was created in 2011. Funio is actually the former shared hosting division of iWeb, one of the largest web hosting companies in Canada. Since iWeb wanted to focus on its Smart, Virtual and Dedicated servers and other enterprise services, Funio was established as a separate company.
Funio Shared Hosting Plan
Funio provides a single shared hosting plan. This package includes several features which are generally expected of a shared hosting plan. For example, here are some of the features that are included in every shared hosting package:
- Unlimited bandwidth;
- 600GB of web space;
- Hosting of unlimited domain names and websites;
- Zero downtime architecture;
- Unlimited subdomains;
- 1 domains for $0.99;
- Up to 500 email accounts;
- $50 credit for Google Adwords;
- Web editing software WebExpert6 for free.
Funio’s shared hosting plan is offered at a price of $5.83 per month for a 2 year agreement, $6.99 per month for a one year agreement, $7.38 per month for an agreement of 6 months and $7.77 per month for a monthly agreement. Prices are in U.S. dollars.
Funio Reseller Plan
Funio also offers a web hosting reseller plan for customers who want to provide web hosting services to their customers.
Funio offers two reseller packager, one starting at $28.33 per month for a 2 year agreement, the other at $50.83 per month for a 2 year agreement as well.
Funio is an attractive option for webmasters looking for a web hosting in Quebec. Funio might be a recent arrival in the web hosting scenery, but as a host created by iWeb, it has extensive experience in the field of web hosting. In the past, iWeb has been criticized by some for its customer service which is apparently not always up to par. Remains to be seen whether this will happen with Funio. At $5.83 per month, Funio is not the cheapest web hosting provider when compared with other Canadian web hosting companies such as HostPapa.ca and GreemGeeks.ca, but it remains an affordable web host.
In light of the negative Funio reviews we’ve been seeing lately, we strongly suggest you read our Funio Alternatives article before joining Funio.
