Since starting its journey in 2018, Filipino company ALCHosting has offered feature-rich hosting solutions that help its clients make most out of their online presences. ALCHosting’s English-language website advertises Linux shared hosting, cloud VPS, dedicated servers, reseller hosting, domain solutions, SSL certificates, and associated services.
Features and Ease of Use
ALCHosting offers three Linux shared hosting packages, five VPS packages (including a customizable package), five dedicated server packages (including a customizable package), and four reseller hosting packages.
The Linux shared hosting packages provide you with:
- 99.99% uptime guarantee
- 15 GB to unmetered SSD storage
- Unmetered bandwidth
- One to unlimited websites
- cPanel control panel
- CloudLinux OS
- 10 to 100 MySQL databases
- Virus scanner
- Weekly backups
The free SSL certificate secures your client-server communications, and additional security can come courtesy of the separately-purchasable SiteLock plans that provide advanced scanning and immediate notifications.
You can create your website using the Weebly website builder that helps you build a professional web presence via a drag-and-drop interface without having to be a professional website designer. Alternatively, you can use the Softaculous one-click application installer to create a CMS-backed website using something like WordPress.
Pricing and Support
ALCHosting offers Linux shared hosting packages at prices slightly below the average. Currently, as of this review, customers have the opportunity to avail themselves of a 20% discount on VPS and dedicated server solutions. Payments can be made using nineteen different currencies and cryptocurrencies, through a variety of methods such as PayPal, credit/debit card, bank transfer, and more. Billing cycles range from monthly to triennial, providing flexibility to choose the preferred payment frequency.
Shared and reseller hosting packages come with a 30-day money-back guarantee that should get you out early — with a full refund — if anything goes wrong.
