Low price value
After reviewing the shared hosting plans comprehensively and comparing them with the solutions of some other good web hosts like InMotion Hosting
, we find that these plans are not cost-effective at all. The cheap Economic plan is not worth the money as it does not even allow SSH, Ruby or Python.
For the premium plans Startup and SMB, their prices are almost equal to a cheap VPS
, while they do not include advanced features, dedicated resources or full server control.Slow speed for visitors in the US
According to our monitoring, Funio cannot guarantee fast speed for most regions in the US. As is mentioned before, the data centers are located in Montreal, which makes the servers quite far away from visitors. The statistics we have collected show that the server response is not unbearably slow, but it is not fast, either. See the monitoring results for the past 24 hours.No pro-rated refund
Funio promises 30-day refund for shared hosting users, and there will be no refund after that. Accounts closed after the first 30 days might be credited for the prepayments, but the credits can be useless if you do not plan further purchases at Funio.No responsibility for data corruption
This might not be seen as a disadvantage, but you should note that Funio does not guarantee the safety of your data and is not responsible for any loss of your data or the data corruption. Therefore, you must keep backing your databases and all content up manually for your websites hosted with Funio.High rates for paid support
Funio may provide customers with additional support upon request. Tasks related to DNS, bandwidth, disk storage and website troubleshooting are covered. However, the service is charged a high hourly rate of $125 CA (equaling to approximately $99.5 USD), which is unreasonable.
