Reviews and expert opinion ALCHosting

ALCHosting is a Filipino hosting provider with a (so far) short track record. Its prices are lower than average (which is good), but I couldn't summon a pre-sales support response (which is not so good).

Overview

ALCHosting Overview

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’s Linux shared hosting packages are priced slightly lower than the average, and at the time of this review, you could get a 20% discount off VPS and dedicated server solutions. You can pay in nineteen different currencies and cryptocurrencies via many different methods (PayPal, credit/debit card, bank transfer, and more) on billing cycles from monthly to triennial.

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.

Although you should be able to contact this company’s 24/7 support team via ticket, telephone, callback service, contact form, email, or live chat, I have to tell you that my ticket submission went unanswered.  On the plus side, the self-support knowledge base is acceptable (but not exceptional):
