4hosting is a web hosting company located in Poland. It was founded in 2010 with a focus on shared hosting, reseller hosting, email hosting and domain registration for its hosting services. The company also offers internet marketing services. Its website is available in Polish only.
Features and Ease of Use
4hosting offers storage spaces on its web shared hosting plans from 10GB and up to 50GB which is suitable for small to medium-sized business websites. Some of the other features that you will find on its three shared hosting plans include:
- 99% uptime guarantee
- Unlimited Bandwidth
- Two, ten, or unlimited domains per plan
Although the company doesn’t provide a free domain, I noticed that at checkout, it gave me the option for a free subdomain. That’s example.4hosting.pl. I wouldn’t advise you use that for any serious business but if you’re taking the hosting for a personal blog, a staging website, or you’re an affiliate of the hosting company, it isn’t a bad idea.
4hosting comes with a website creator with free templates that make it easy for customers to build a website from scratch even if they don’t not have any knowledge of coding.
4hosting offers cPanel which is easy to use. However, there’s no one-click installer so if your plan is to use WordPress or any other CMS, you’ll have to manually install it.
Another feature of its hosting is helping customers connect Google analytics to the website for free. However, that is only for the first 30 days and the company doesn’t provide features like CloudLinux, SSH or CDN.
Pricing and Support
4hosting offers a 14 day trial period on all of its plans, during which you can walk away if it doesn’t deliver on its promises. If you choose to stay, you’ll have to pay for an annual subscription. There’s no one month subscription period on offer.
Its prices aren’t the lowest in the market but some of the plans are affordable. Beware though that it doesn’t offer a money-back guarantee.
Also, the company offers SSL certificates as a separate service; not as a free offer with hosting. That’s a small fee for its benefits, security and ranking-wise. Nevertheless, it would have been great to have it free.
It promises 24/7 support and offers it through phone and email. You can reach the phone lines on Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. It also comes with a help center but it is limited to mostly sales FAQs like how to transfer domains.
I sent an email but didn’t get a response despite waiting for over a week.
