Customers with Windows hosting also can have Access Databases with up to 50 DSN connections and unlimited DSNless Access Databases. All plans surprisingly, include a shared Secure Socket Layer certificate. This is required for most shopping cart systems and payment gateways in order to process transactions. To administer your website Omnis has built a custom Control Panel which includes access to your files via either FTP or a web based file manager. The Control Panel also includes a streaming media manager. While the Omnis Control Panel is not as robust as the popular cPanel it does do the job and I had no problems with it. From the website statistics end of things you do have access to the raw log files plus Webalizer generated statistics.

Domain transfers are easy to complete with Omnis taking care of most of the details. Click here for more information on Omnis Network domain registration.

Cost & Value

Omnis Networks offers a good price for their web hosting. While not as feature complete as other hosting plans from other providers they do offer what most websites require these days.

Reliability & Performance

During our review process we experienced no reliability or performance problems. With Omnis 2 guarantees in place you will have little to worry about if something happens in which you are not happy about. On the hardware side of things, they have multiple DS3 internet connections being controlled by Cisco routers and switches. All web hosting is done on Supermicro Servers and your data is backed up regularly. We gave Omnis an above average score for this section.

Customer Support

We didn't receive bad customer support from Omnis. All Email support queries where answered within 24 hours. While not super fast, it falls in the norm for the more value minded hosting providers. Their knowledge base is very in-depth with 100's of posted frequently asked questions and "How To's" articles.


To conclude, Omnis Network received an average score of 75%. They fell short in a few key areas including Features and Popularity. While the Unix features are up to snuff, the Windows hosting side of things are lacking. Windows hosting is missing PHP and Perl scripting. These are both available for Windows and most other hosting providers support it. The other things missing with Windows Hosting was no Custom Error Pages and almost no popular script installers. These again can be found else where. Omnis scored low on popularity since they don't have the same number of clients as the big hosting providers but, with over 200,000 customers served they have built trust and are much larger than the majority of web hosting providers out there.

For shared Unix web hosting I have no problems recommending Omnis Network. If you are looking for a Windows hosting solution they do offer plans but, double check the website features as you may have to look else where.
