Romanian host DaddyHost has been in business since 2011 but has recently experienced problems with its website, which doesn’t bode well for a vendor offering to host customers’ websites. It’s a pity because some of its offerings look like they could be pretty good.

Overview

daddyhost main

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

DaddyHost (Romania) looks like it offers a wide range of game hosting, servers, web hosting, and reseller hosting plans. But does it? For some time, this vendor’s website was down. Now that it’s back up, it seems that all the menu links to individual hosting services lead to a “Not Found – 404” error page. This doesn’t bode well for a company that wants to host my website or yours.

Despite what I just said, DaddyHost’s Romanian-language website actually looks quite modern, so maybe it’s merely a work in progress. Additional company information (like its founding date of July 1, 2011) can be deduced from the associated Facebook page.

Features and Ease of Use

Although the website’s links all seem to be broken, I can at least list some of the features you’re supposed to get with the web hosting plans:

  • Unlimited storage space
  • Unlimited data transfer
  • Unlimited databases
  • cPanel control panel
  • SSD storage

Additional details on DaddyHost’s website suggest that all hosting solutions include DDoS premium protection and a free SSL certificate. Also, DaddyHost promises that its web hosting is scalable, backed by superior support, and activated instantly.

Pricing and Support

Although the web pages for the individual hosting solutions are hard (if not impossible) to access, the price shown for web hosting on the vendor’s home page suggests that its web hosting is reasonably priced.

DaddyHost’s Facebook page is quite useful as a means of messaging the company and for discovering its support email address. Unfortunately, I received no reply when I emailed the support team, which gives me even more reason to wonder whether DaddyHost is still in the hosting business at all.

A Free Domain is included when purchasing any hosting service from DaddyHost

Bottom line on DaddyHost

It might not be all bad news about DaddyHost, since it has at least progressed from its website being entirely down to it being only partly down.

A fellow reviewer has suggested that he was able to access more areas of the vendor’s website in the run up to this review, in which case you might be able to look forward to such features as a free domain, the FreeBSD operating system, a 99.99% uptime guarantee, and a 30-day money-back guarantee. Unfortunately, I can’t confidently confirm any of this at the time of writing, so don’t forget to do your own due diligence.
