BeeHosting began its journey in 2008, since when it has come a long way to offer cheap, modern and innovative website hosting services to its global clients.
BeeHosting’s server park is in the Linxtelecom datacenter in Tallinn, which is protected by robust security measures, backup power supplies, duplicated precision air conditioners, and dual diverse fiber connections to Helsinki, Stockholm, Moscow, and St. Petersburg. The company also has its own infrastructure in Amsterdam, Riga, and the U.S.
Services include shared and VPS hosting, dedicated hosting, domain name registration, SSL certificates, and SiteLock security. To date, BeeHosting has won 17 awards and has hosted 27,000+ websites. Its own website supports Latvian, English, Estonian, Russian, and Lithuanian languages.
Features and Ease of Use
BeeHosting offers four shared web hosting plans ranging from the Free plan to Unlimited Pro. As the name suggests, the ‘Free’ plan lets you try the services for free for a month.
BeeHosting’s three paid shared web hosting plans vary in terms of disk space (15 MB to unlimited), monthly bandwidth (5000 MB to unlimited), number of domains (1 to 10), email accounts and databases (1 to unlimited). All these plans come with:
- Daily backups
- Free domain (with one-year registration)
- Free SiteBuilder
- Unlimited My SQL users
- Database backup/restore
- Email aliases
- Site statistics
- Custom error pages
Some other features of BeeHosting’s plans are:
- SSH Access
- Cron Jobs
- 1-click app installer
- RAID 1 with HDD/SSD
- Full root access + WHM
- CloudFlare CDN integration
BeeHosting’s CMS hosting plans come ready with PrestaShop, osCommerce, Magento, Zen Cart, or WooCommerce, so you can easily set up an online shop in minutes.
BeeHosting offers 99.9% uptime guarantee.
Pricing and Support
BeeHosting’s shared hosting plans are pretty affordable but beware the 20% VAT element added at the checkout. You can pay for the plans in euros via Visa or Mastercard, PayPal, Danske Bank, SEB, Swedbank, WebMoney, QIWI wallet, or Bitcoin.
BeeHosting offers monthly, quarterly, semi-annual, and annual billing cycles, and the 30-day money-back guarantee means you don’t need to worry too much about signing up.
You can reach BeeHost’s 24/7 support staff via phone, email, online feedback form, and a ticket system. When I tested the ticket system, I got a reply within ten minutes:
For self-support, BeeHosting provides a nice knowledge base and a regularly updated blog. The only potential issue (for me) is that some of the knowledge base articles aren’t in English, but they seem to be perfectly understandable when translated by my browser.
