Altınsoft began in the I.T. services business in towards the end of 2005. Today, it offers a wide variety of hosting services to its global clients, including shared Linux and Windows web hosting, reseller hosting, VDS, and dedicated servers. This company also offers domain registration, e-commerce services, enterprise solutions, and consulting services for website projects.

Features and Ease of Use
Altınsoft offers eight shared hosting plans (four each for Linux and Windows), six reseller hosting plans (three of each), and several VDS and dedicated servers in various locations around the world (in the U.K., France, Germany, Poland, Turkey, and Canada). The shared hosting plans provide you with:
- CentOS operating system
- Nginx webserver
- Plesk control panel
- 1 MB to 5 MB web space
- 2 GB to 10 GB monthly traffic
- Unlimited email accounts
- Unlimited subdomains
- Unlimited MySQL databases
- Free SSL certificate
For programmers, these plans support cURL, Perl, Ruby, PHP, Python, CGI, FastCGI, and SSI. Those of you who are not so tech-savvy can benefit from the automatic installation of apps such as WordPress and Simple Machines Forum (SMF). However, you’re out of luck if you’re looking to auto-install any e-commerce software such as PrestaShop or osCommerce.
Statistical information such as your disk usage, plus traffic reports and visitor statistics, will provide useful insights.
Servers use SSD storage (for fast performance and reliability) with RAID 6 (for data redundancy in case of disk failure). Altinsoft also has a redundant network infrastructure, and it offers a 99.9% uptime guarantee, which is just about the industry average.
Pricing and Support
Altınsoft’s shared hosting plans are cheap. You can pay for them in U.S. dollars by PayPal, bank transfer, or credit cards on billing cycles from 1 to 12 years. You get a seven-day money-back guarantee with the Linux and Windows hosting plans, but only a one-day money-back guarantee with a VDS.
Although you might be disappointed by Altinsoft’s self-help resources, you can access its 24/7 customer support via live chat, telephone, email, Skype, fax, or online contact form. I got some satisfactory answers via the live chat channel.
