Although Argentina-based buHost’s website doesn’t say explicitly when the company was started, its social media pages suggest that this is a relatively recent entrant onto the hosting scene. By taking a customer-centric approach, this host claims to provide quality solutions that allow clients to concentrate on their core businesses. Its website supports Spanish.
Features and Ease of Use
This host offers three shared hosting packages, six VPS packages, and three reseller packages. The shared hosting packages provide you with:
- 5 GB to 50 GB storage space
- 30 GB to 300 GB bandwidth
- 3 to 5 domains
- cPanel/DirectAdmin control panel
- Unlimited databases
- Unlimited emails
- Multiple PHP versions
- Weekly backups
You get a free SSL certificate to keep your website safe, and the Softaculous one-click installer helps you install a plethora of popular programs such as WordPress (for blogging and website building), OpenCart (for e-commerce), and phpBB (for building a bulletin board or web forum).
If you want to become a virtual web host, you can take advantage of buHost’s “white label” reseller hosting packages that allow you to build your own hosting brand. And if shared hosting is insufficient for your individual needs, you might benefit from the Flex VPS service.
Pricing and Support
The shared hosting prices are slightly higher than average, and you can pay for them in U.S. dollars or Argentinian pesos by PayPal, credit cards, Mercado Pago, Rapipago, and more methods. Available billing cycles include monthly, semi-annual, annual, or biennial, with small discounts for longer-than-monthly commitments (with reseller hosting, too).
The 30-day satisfaction guarantee should make you feel better about signing up, and beforehand, the 14-day free trial affords you an opportunity to try before you buy.
You can contact buHost’s 24/7 support team by telephone, ticket (for existing customers), email, or online contact form. However, my contact form submission went unanswered. For self-support, the frequent questions page contains a good number of tutorial-style entries:
