The AUHost4u website is in English, but its client area supports 24 additional languages.
Features and Ease of Use
AUHost4u’s bouquet of hosting services includes six shared hosting packages, two reseller hosting packages, and three VPS packages. The shared hosting packages provide you with:
- 99.9% uptime guarantee
- 1 GB to 30 GB SSD storage
- 1 GB to unlimited bandwidth
- 1 to 10 websites
- 1 to 30 MySQL databases with phpMyAdmin
- Unlimited domain aliases
- cPanel control panel
- 5 to unlimited mailboxes
- Free setup
The included Softaculous one-click installer lets you install a large number of CMS and other applications without technical knowledge, and a free SSL certificate lets you secure your site, give your visitors confidence, and improve your search engine standing. All hosted sites sit on SSD storage that is far faster and more reliable than traditional HDD storage.
AUHost4u’s Tier 3 data center is designed to provide excellent stability, redundancy, and uptime.
Pricing and Support
AUHost4u’s shared hosting packages are incredibly cheap and can be paid for only annually (unlike VPS plans which can also be bought on a monthly basis). Australian and U.S. dollars are accepted, and you can pay by bank transfer, PayPal, direct debit, or credit/debit card. A 30-day money-back guarantee gives you some time to assess the services and get out relatively risk-free if you change your mind.
The customer support team can be contacted by telephone (the number is not prominently displayed), ticket (for registered users only), or email. I’m pleased to say that my exploratory email received a reply within a few hours.
For self-support, AUHost4u’s website includes a limited knowledgebase (with only six articles), but the Client Support button takes you to parent company Host4u’s more extensive knowledge base.
