In business since 2015, Acno Tech offers a wide range of products and services including hosting, servers, SSL certificates, web and mobile development, and Tele-marketing such as Bulk SMS. Its website is available in English only. The company uses servers that are located in Kansas, Missouri, United States to serve customers.
When it comes to hosting, Acno Tech offers a variety of solutions that are Linux shared hosting, Windows shared hosting, reseller hosting (Linux and Windows), Cloud hosting, Java hosting, FFMPEG Hosting, Virtual Private Servers (VPS), and dedicated servers.
Features and Ease of Use
For the sake of this review, I’ll focus more on its shared hosting. You can choose any Linux shared hosting plan if you plan on using WordPress (or any PHP-based application), or PHP, Python, etc. If you’re going to use, ASP.Net, Windows works better. These are some of the features that you get:
- 99.95% uptime guarantee
- Free SSL
- One, three, five, ten, or unlimited websites per account
- Anywhere from 1GB to unlimited storage
- 10GB, 100GB, or unlimited bandwidth.
Acno Tech runs CentOS on Linux hosting. It reduces the risk of system crashes and operates faster than similar Linux-based OS. The company also uses CloudLinux which virtualizes shared servers to separate resources per user and ensure that no one over-loads the server and affects others. It also has some security benefits.
This hosting company also provides some other security features on both Windows and Linux hosting. One of them is a firewall and IP blocking which keeps out malicious requests and minimizes the chances of an attack on your website. With those is Malware protection.
For hosting management, Linux customers get cPanel while Windows customers get Plesk. Both get a web application installer that can be used to install applications like WordPress and Joomla!. There’s also a free website builder so you don’t have to write any HTML.
Pricing and Support
Acno Tech’s prices are one of the lowest you’ll find in the industry for the features on offer. Even then, it still offers free SSL. Given the importance of SSL to search engine ranking and security, they are essential and the free SSL will cut down your cost even more.
The subscription periods start from 12 months. That’s a lot of time. Most people prefer to either be able to test something before they buy or have a shorter term to pay for. Unfortunately, there’s no free trial so you’re stuck with the 12 months. Thankfully, it has a 30-day money-back guarantee so if it doesn’t satisfy you, you can get your money back.
Its other hosting services, especially the VPS are low cost as well. The subscription period starts from one month.
I had a few questions concerning the uptime and connecting my domain to its servers. I checked for a knowledge base and found none so my only resort was to contact customer support. This is a gripe for me because you may not get an immediate response from support sometimes so it’ll be great to have tutorials in place.
I was able to get through to a support agent through the live chat and the agent helped me with the nameservers to updating my domain.
Aside from the live chat, you can also contact support agents through phone, email, and ticket. They work 24/7.
