CentoHost is a reputable web hosting service provider based in Central America. It caters to a broad range of clients with everything from small websites to high-traffic sites.


CentoHostCentoHost is fine, but fine is not good enough. While CentoHost is a decent web host, you can get better quality hosting at a cheaper price with Hostinger, for example.

CentoHost has offered a wide selection of web hosting services to all kinds of clients since 2002. With its Dell server technology in its own datacenter, this company strives to help clients make most out of their websites.

CentoHost’s bouquet of services includes shared web hosting, reseller web hosting, VPS plans, dedicated servers, and associated services (such as domain registration). This host’s website is in English.

Features and Ease of Use


CentoHost offers four different types of true enterprise-grade SSD shared hosting solutions: Start Hosting, Mini Hosting, Midi Hosting, and Unlimited Hosting. All cPanel shared hosting plans provide you with:

  • SLA-backed 99.9% uptime guarantee
  • Unmetered bandwidth
  • Unlimited MySQL/MariaDB databases
  • Unlimited email accounts
  • Unlimited subdomains
  • CGI/Perl/PHP
  • Cron jobs
  • SSH access
  • 5 GB to unlimited disk space
  • 5 to 20 websites
  • 2 GB to 8 GB RAM
  • Automated daily backups

One of CentoHost’s most notable features is the enterprise-grade SSD storage that ensures higher performance while consuming less power than HDD storage. Secondly, the Softaculous one-click installer helps you install popular apps without technical knowledge.

To alleviate your security concerns, all the shared hosting plans come with a free SSL certificate to create a secure connection between your visitors’ web browser and your website. Free DDoS protection further enhances your website’s stability, and HTTP/2 should ensure faster loading speeds.

CentoHost’s set of services is completed by four enterprise-grade reseller web hosting solutions, four different VPS solutions, and two true enterprise-grade dedicated servers.

Pricing and Support

CentoHost’s shared hosting plans are cheap. You can pay using PayPal, a credit card, or Bitcoin, ostensibly on billing cycles from monthly to triennial, although (confusingly) the terms-of-service page doesn’t mention the multiyear options. Since there is no discount for even an annual commitment, you might as well make monthly payments.

Hosting plans come with a 30-day money-back guarantee, subject to deductions for domain registration and some exceptions for special offers.

CentoHost’s 24/7 customer service team can be contacted via telephone, online form, and support ticket. I wasn’t able to access the advertised chat option that invites you to send a message instead. Although my initial message went unanswered, I eventually received the following response:



You should find CentoHost’s well-stocked knowledge base to be very useful if you want to try supporting yourself.

Centohost just Brilliant - recommended. Thanks Guys

Happy using Centohost service. It usually manages to answer support tickets in twenty minutes or less. Top-notch technical support care, affordable pricing for feature-packed hosting packages, and I haven't seen a bit of downtime. Space & bandwidth is plenty - I get what I pay for! I trust them. The technical support team is fast, efficient, friendly and understandable even for technical newbies like I am! Many thanks!

I am happy running my websites with Centohost!

Nice web host. Centohost dedicated server is running fast - my sites are always up and accessible to my visitors (uptime is 99.9%). Always found the site fast in the Control Panel & site management. They have met my needs perfectly and exceeded my expectations the couple times I needed support. Would like to thank their tech support, they were able to help me diagnose the problem and solve it within minutes. Thanks. Recommended.

Definitely recommended!

Thanks Centohost web host. After being hosted with a few other site hosts and found that the services they provided were both annoying and incomplete, it feels great to have a host who takes care of your every need and makes sure you're wellbeing is taken into consideration. Recommend centohost hosting service to everyone I know as a secure and safe host to be with. No overselling. Really nice host.

Centohost is always helpful with questions from beginners!

Fantastic host and they have gone above and beyond the usual business to help get my site up and going. I have a small Joomla web site hosted with Centohost web host. According to the support, they are very prompt and giving 100% perfect answers to the customer. If there are any other problem, they will connect to the client machine through logmein account and they will fix it. Really nice, professional web host.

Pages load fast and my visitors do not complain

Hosting is easy to use, reliable (more reliable than other hosts I have used) and their tech support is quick and gets everything right every time! Centohost is by far the best. I have been with them for more then 4 months now (have dedicated server account) and I can not recall when was the last time I had to write a ticket. Their support was very quick and solved all the troubles. I'd not think twice about recommending them to anyone wishing to start or host a website.10/10 to Centohost server hosting service! Double Thumbs Up!

Bottom line on CentoHost

If you’re looking for cheap but reliable hosting plans, you can give CentoHost a go. Pre-sales support was sluggish, but the self-support resources are good.
