Czech host CoolHosting offers a single affordable shared web hosting plan along with other kinds of hosting such as virtual servers. I feel that it's let down somewhat by its support offerings.

Overview

coolhosting main

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

CoolHosting is a hosting brand operated by Fortion Networks: a Czech company that has been in the hosting market since 2003. It specializes in shared hosting, VPS hosting, dedicated servers, and domain registration. 

CoolHosting’s website is only available in Czech, but it is well-organized and easy to navigate.

Features and Ease of Use

Unlike most web hosting providers, CoolHosting offers only one all-inclusive shared hosting plan. Personally, I prefer to have a variety of plans from which to choose, or a single plan that I can customize to meet my needs. However, the single plan does provide some useful features, including:

  • Daily backups
  • Cron jobs
  • Antivirus and antispam
  • AWstats traffic statistics
  • Free SSL certificate
  • WebPanel control panel

Although I prefer the popular cPanel control panel, the WebPanel control panel allows you to do many of the same things  — managing domains, email accounts, FTP accounts, and files — via its user-friendly interface. 

Since CoolHosting’s servers use the CloudLinux operating system, you are isolated from the effects of other “badly behaved” hosted users, so your resources and performance should be unaffected. The fact that you can use Cron jobs means that you can schedule tasks to run on a regular basis rather than having to execute them manually each time.

Pricing and Support

CoolHosting

CoolHosting’s single price plan is affordable, relative to competitors’ offerings, and you can pay for it by GoPay, PayPal, bank transfer, and other methods, on one- or two-year terms.

There are three ways to contact this company for support: telephone, ticket, or email. Unfortunately, my test email and ticket submissions went unanswered. If you have to resort to self-support, you may be similarly disappointed that this vendor has no knowledge base. However, you may be able to glean some useful information from parent company Fortion Networks’ knowledge base.

Bottom line on CoolHosting

CoolHosting’s features and capabilities mark it out as a reliable hosting provider, and its single shared hosting plan is affordable. I’d feel better about this host if I could summon some pre-sales support or at least refer to a comprehensive set of self-support resources.
