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

Overview

Alantron

Alantron is a Turkey-based provider of web hosting services that includes shared hosting, VPS, and dedicated servers. The company was founded in 2008. Their shared hosting services offer fantastic features and an incredible 99.9949% average uptime. If you’re looking for a host with unlimited storage and bandwidth for either Linux or Windows shared hosting, this company should be on your shortlist.

Features and Ease of Use

Alantron offers fantastic shared hosting plans with some of the best basic features that you’ll find on a shared hosting service. Check out all that you get standard:

  • Choice of Windows or Linux operating systems
  • Unlimited storage and bandwidth
  • Unlimited email accounts
  • Unlimited databases
  • Website builder with over 500 templates

These features alone would already be enough to shortlist this provider, but you get tons of added value with the following features:

  • Anti-spam and anti-virus protection
  • Supports SSL and cron jobs
  • Regular backups
  • Supports CGI, SSI, ASP, ASP.NET, PHP, AJAX, and JavaScript
  • Free IPv6 IP address

These are some fantastic features that give you a ton of control over your hosting and your website. I would’ve liked for Python, Ruby, and other advanced developer tools to be supported, but only the most advanced websites will have an issue with this host.

I am a bit disappointed they don’t offer free domains or SSL certificates, but with the features they do offer, I’ll let that slide.

Beginners will love this provider as they offer a website builder with over 500 templates. They don’t list an auto-installer for programs such as WordPress, so you may have to go the manual route. Contact customer support to see if they will offer assistance for installing WordPress or other CMSes. Otherwise, you can use the included cPanel or Plesk control panel to build your website.

Pricing and Support

Alantron offers four primary shared hosting plans, all with the same features as listed above. The only difference in the plans is the number of domains you can host. The plans are as follows:

  • Power1 – Single domain hosting
  • Power2 – Host two domains
  • Power10 – Host 10 domains
  • Power20 – Host 20 domains

These packages offer great value and pricing that’s on par with other providers. On top of that, if you opt for a year of hosting, you’ll pay the equivalent of ten months’ hosting. Opt for a two or three-year plan and you’ll save even more. Again, note that your domain and SSL certificates are not free, so factor that into your costs.

These plans come with an unconditional money back guarantee for the first 180 days. However, if you request a refund after six months, you will only receive credit back to your Alantron account, which can be applied to any Alantron service.

Alantron offers robust technical support consisting of live chat, telephone, ticket, and email support. They also have an extensive knowledge base available. You must be a customer to access their support phone line.

Bottom line on Alantron

It’s rare to come across a provider with the features offered by Alantron. While not perfect, they’re one of the better providers I’ve come across to date and definitely one you should look into. Even though you have to pay for your domain and SSL certificates, this service is still a better value than most providers.

Pros

  • Choice of Windows or Linux operating systems
  • Unlimited storage and bandwidth
  • Website builder with over 500 templates
  • Supports SSL, cron jobs, CGI, ASP, and more

Cons

  • No free domain or SSL certificates
  • No support for Python or Ruby
