Dhaka Web Host is a small hosting company that simply isn’t a match for big brands like Hostinger. The bigger hosting companies simply offer a better price for similar configuration.
Since its inception in 2011, Dhaka Web Host has served more than 2,200 customers with 4,500 domains and 3,500 hosted websites. Having worked to satisfy its customers over the years, it has proven its experience with hosting and server management.
This Bangladesh web hosting company hosts its servers in the data centers of Liquid Web, Colocrossing, and Server Mania that are located in the United States and Canada. Its website is in English only.
Features and Ease of Use
Dhaka Web Host offers web hosting for small to medium websites, and SSD hosting for E-commerce stores and resource-intensive websites. It also offers dedicated servers, hosting, and VPS servers.
There are eight web hosting plans with varying features to fit different categories of websites. They offer:
- 99.9% uptime
- Daily automatic backups
- Unlimited add-on domains, on some plans
- Free SSL certificate
- Up to unlimited bandwidth
- Anywhere from 500MB to unmetered space
One interesting feature that you get with this company is its free SSL certificate. It isn’t just free for a certain period like most web hosts. Instead, it’s a lifetime offer, which means that you’ll never have to buy an SSL certificate for as long as you continue to use the company’s services.
If you plan on using a content management system like WordPress, then you’ll appreciate the provision of Softaculous application installer in the control panel. With it, you can install and set up your preferred application in a minute, no stress. Without it, you’ll have to configure your database, connect it, and do a manual installation. Beginners wouldn’t be able to do that as quickly and easily as they would with Softaculous.
I like the attention to security with both server-level and website security. To start with, Dhaka Web Host offers anti-DDoS protection to ensure that you are not locked out of your server due to attacks. This also protects you from hackers placing malware on your server using DDoS as an entry. Dhaka Web Host also provides exploit scanner and server-side firewalls. On the website level, there are Modsec rules in place as well as the exploit scanner.
To enhance the security and reliability of its servers, the vendor uses CloudLinux operating system to share resources among shared hosting customers, giving you a virtual space that other users can’t interfere with. Everyone’s limited to the resources they paid for, and is limited in how much their action can affect yours.
Pricing and Support
Dhaka Web host doesn’t offer a free plan that you can try out first. However, it has many plans on offer to cater for different budgets and needs. Its base plan only offers 500MB and while that is very low, it will support a simple static website so that might be enough for you, and it’s low-cost. Its other plans are priced reasonably, as well.
The lowest subscription period available on web hosting is 12 months, then 24 months and 36 months, and the lack of month-to-month subscription options here is disappointing.
Fortunately, the company provides a 30-day money-back guarantee to mitigate your risk in case are not satisfied within the first month. Also, if you record less than its promised 99.9% uptime, you’ll receive one month of credit on hosting when you contact support.
The support team responds 24/7 through ticket and email. There’s phone support too, but that only works from 10:00 AM to 10:00 PM GMT +6. I sent an email and received a fast response.
It also has a knowledge base with tutorials that you can use to quickly solve issues you may have.
