Omnis Network Review – Complete Features & Hosting Guide 2017

Omnis Network is a hosting company that was founded in 1999. It is headquartered in Torrance, California and its staff works on-site at the company’s own data center. We were unable to clarify who owns Omnis Network, however according to information found on LinkedIn, all staff members – which includes the support team – appear to work out of the Los Angeles location.

The two major services offered by Omnis Network are Linux and Windows cloud hosting. These cloud-based packages have many similarities to shared hosting plans offered by most hosting companies.

Hosting Plans

The shared hosting that is provided by Omnis Network is offered on both Windows and Linux. They are both cloud hosting services that provide unlimited subdomains, aliases, domains, bandwidth and disk space. If they wish, users can add a dedicated IP address as well as a private SSL certificate. There are additional fees for the optional extras.

Both plans include a site builder. This enable users to create free 3-page websites. This is quite limited, so if you would like to develop a larger website, you will instead need to pay for the Ecommerce site builder or Pro site builder.

The website currently lists VPS hosting as well as dedicated servers as coming soon, so it appears those services are not offered yet.

Support

All support staff for Omnis Network is based in the US. It is specifically stated by the company that it doesn’t outsource any of its technical support. Customers may contact the hosting service on a 24/7 basis by email, phone or live chat.

They provide a knowledgebase for customers as well. It is very good and most of the basics are covered that customers need to know about. Also included in the support area are some basic video tutorials and FAQs. Their videos on their YouTube channel are short but very helpful.

Control Panel

Customers of Omnis Network are required to use a custom control panel which is called Account Manager. The host does not offer Plesk or cPanel.

If you would like a behind the scenes look at what the Account Manager control panel is like, the company’s YouTube channel has several videos that provide sneak previews of Account Manager’s control panel features. Although it does appear to have a clear layout, there seems to be fewer tools available than what cPanel offers. So for advanced users this might be frustrating.

Extras

New customers of Omnis Network can receive a free domain name, as long as they sign up for one year. Following the first year, you must pay for the domain name at its regular rate. New customers are also given a $25 ad credit for Yahoo ads and $100 for Google AdWords, for those who haven’t used those services previous. A $25 minimum spend is required to be used with the $100 Google AdWords credit.

A free site builder is also available. Just keep in mind that only three pages can be created for free, and the paid “Pro” version is not cheap.

Policies and Guarantees

Customers are offered a 30-day money-back guarantee by Omnis Network. In order to claim a refund with this guarantee, you must request the cancellation by contacting the company’s support department.

Customers may email the customer service department to cancel their hosting account. Cancellations are immediate, and they can’t be scheduled in advance. In the terms and conditions hosting document, it states that a pro-rated refund can be requested by customers for any portion of their hosting plan that they do not use.

Summary

The hosting plans offered by Omnis Network are described in a clear and succinct manner. Customers in search of shared hosting will get everything they are looking for, with the exception of a familiar control panel. This host has a strong hosting track record and customers are kept informed via social media. It’s too bad its data center facilities are not promoted as well as they could be.
