Features and Ease of Use
Codexplorer Hosting has different categories of plans on its shared server. There are Linux, Windows, and WordPress shared hosting plans. With them, you will enjoy features such as:
- 99.9% uptime guarantee
- Free SSL certificate
- From 1GB to unlimited disk space
- From 20GB to unlimited disk space
- Automatic backups
Generally, these plans feature MySQL databases, PostgreSQL databases, MsSQL databases, subdomains, email accounts, and FTP accounts. It also offers phpMyAdmin access. For programming, it supports Linux and Windows-based languages, including PHP and ASP.NET. For a beginner, though, this wouldn’t be understandable. As such, it offers easy CMS installation through Softaculous. This supports WordPress., Joomla, OpenCart, phpBB, Concrete5, and many more.
Alternatively, you can take one of the WordPress plans. They come with automatic updates and automatic caching. So, you won’t need to bother about setting up or updating your WordPress core, theme, and plugins.
For hosting management, the Linux and WordPress plans come with cPanel and the Windows plans use Plesk. Both control panels can be used to access files and features that come with shared hosting.
The Linux plans come with enhanced security features and the stability of a virtualized environment due to CloudLinux technology. Four out of the WordPress plans are enhanced with a security suite that includes automatic cloud backups and anti-malware. All plans come with Hotlink and Leech protection. They also come with antivirus and antispam protection.
Codexplorer Hosting uses SSDs, which enhances the speed of websites. It is also a more durable way of storing data. The WordPress plans use the Ceph based storage system that stores data in three devices to ensure redundancy.
Pricing and Support
Codexplorer Hosting offers very cheap and affordable prices on the majority of its plans. Though, two of the WordPress + Security Suite plans are quite expensive.
Its billing cycles differ with the different categories of hosting plans. Generally, they are monthly, quarterly, semi-annual, annual, biennial, and triennial. There are discounted prices as you subscribe for longer. Its billing methods are PayPal, Rocket, Bkash, bank transfer, cash, and check payment. It offers a 30-day money-back guarantee, as well.
Free domain registration is available on all Windows plans and on all but one of the Linux plans. Only the WordPress plans do not come with free domain registration.
Codexplorer Hosting’s support system is comprised of a live chat, email, ticketing system, contact form, phone number, and frequently asked questions (FAQ). I tried the live chat, but it took too long to connect to an agent, so I sent an email but didn’t get a response.
