MochaHost is a pretty good budget host, and while it does have its flaws, so do its competitors. On the whole, you can’t complain about the service and the resources you get for the price you pay, and the company also offers a whopping 180-day money-back guarantee. Before you make any final decisions, you should check out Hostinger's cheap plans.

Amazon Web Services (AWS)

AWS’ robust, global network of data centers offers blazing-fast speeds and unparalleled uptime, but it’s not ideal for beginners. If I had an improvement suggestion, I’d request instant customer service for all customers.


RoseHosting is one of the better hosts that I’ve come across. The shared hosting and VPS plans really stand out, and scalability isn’t a problem either. Add them to your list for sure, but you’ll also want to shop around and be careful of those optional extras.

Eco Hosting

For more than ten years, EcoHosting has provided customers around the world with Linux web hosting, VPS, dedicated services, and reseller plans. Their customers enjoy personalized 24/7 support, and high performance courtesy of SSD-powered hosting services.

Web Werks Data Centers

ISPRIME is a fast-growing IT company that was founded in 1998 by three budding entrepreneurs. With redundant networks and secure data centers, ISPRIME is a fantastic choice for customers who are looking for an all-in-one hosting platform.


Dutch host Argeweb offers first-year hosting for only one euro, but its hosting plans get pricey thereafter. I'd feel better about this hosting business of I'd been able to summon a pre-sales support response.


Greek web hosting provider HyperHosting was founded in 2001. Its hosting plans are pricey, but you can get a free domain, and I found the pre-sales support to be prompt.


For competitively priced hosting plans with one month free for an annual commitment, you could consider Hosterion as your Romainian host.


Netsite is one of Denmark's oldest web hosting providers, but its plans are pricey.


Hungarian hosting company Tárhely.Eu started out in 2009. Its plans are competitively priced, but you have to pay for a few things that you might expect to get for free elsewhere.

Magyar Hosting

Hungarian web hosting provider Magyar Hosting is based in Budapest. It offers several GDPR-compliant hosting plans with plenty of performance-enhancing features, but I'd feel better if I'd been able to summon some pre-sales support.
