HostASP

HostASP is a full-service website hosting provider based in India, but with data centers also in the U.K. and U.S.A. They offer affordable services for beginners, experts and resellers alike.

IM Creator

IM Creator's IM XPRS offers a fantastic website builder with unlimited storage and bandwidth. Other than Wix, it’s one of the few builders that offers e-commerce functionality without forcing you to upgrade to a business plan.

LowcHost

LowcHost is an Israeli website hosting company that offers quality shared hosting services with strong security. Their WordPress hosting services are worth checking out and are generally cheaper than their standard hosting.

Z.com

Z.com has an incredible reach that stretches from Asia all the way to Europe and North America, though they’re headquartered in Japan. You can host up to 30 WordPress websites at once on plans with robust storage, bandwidth, and lots of database support. However, your initial startup costs will be higher than most standard hosting.

Alantron

Alantron offers Linux and Windows shared hosting with unlimited storage, bandwidth, databases as well as a website builder with over 500 templates. Throw in great pricing with their unconditional money back guarantee and this is a company you should shortlist

NETMARK

NETMARK offers reliable basic shared hosting services with free domain registration and SSL certificates for most plans. They also provide solid entry-level tools, making them an excellent choice for beginners.

WNPower

WNPower offers both Linux and Windows shared hosting with SSD storage and robust bandwidth. Those looking for WordPress hosting should check this provider out as their service is specially tailored for WordPress websites.

City Network

If you're looking for a cloud server to host your website, City Network offers their scalable public, private, and hybrid cloud services with pay-as-you-go pricing. Their services are great for those wanting complete control over their web hosting, but if you need support, be prepared to pay for it.

Chaiyo Hosting

Chaiyo Hosting offers both Linux and Windows-based web hosting with massive bandwidth and scalable cloud hosting plans that will work for most websites. However, a lack of entry-level tools makes them unsuitable for beginners.

XtraOrbit

Romanian web hosting company XtraOrbit provides affordable shared hosting services that include excellent storage relative to the number of domains hosted and excellent customer support.

PRO ISP

PRO ISP offers robust features and a platform that's great for beginners and experts alike. I’m particularly impressed with its extensive self-help resources and responsive customer support. Although there are no setup fees, the prices might not fit everyone’s budget.

Pointer

With their shared, VPS, and cloud hosting services, Pointer Hosting Experts is an excellent option for beginners and experts alike. While they lack a few advanced developmental tools and have only average support, most plans offer solid features and are great for most personal and small business websites.

Easyhost

Easyhost may be an easy way to acquire basic web hosting, but they fall short in several areas. Primarily, their services offer only basic features. Beginners and those looking for robust shared hosting should look elsewhere. Before you make any final decisions, you should check out Hostinger's cheap plans.

Hukot

Hukot offers affordable website hosting solutions with excellent features and superior security including DDoS and firewall protection.

Superhosting

SuperHosting is one of Bulgaria's biggest website hosting companies and have made a name for themselves offering shared hosting services with great features and affordable pricing. If you want a host that supports large databases, this is one that should be on your list to check out. Before you make any final decisions, you should check out Hostinger's cheap plans.
