Dinahosting is a Spanish website hosting provider. It was established in 2001 and has since billed over 13 million dollars in revenue. Since their inception, they’ve served nearly 140,000 customers and registered over 254,000 domains. Their website is available in English, Spanish, Catalan, and Galician.
Features & Ease of Use
Dinahosting lists all the features of their hosting packages in detail. In their Advanced SSD shared hosting package, you get unlimited emails, unlimited FTP / SFTP accounts, and unlimited databases. Migrating your existing website to Dinahosting is made easy with the help of the portability wizard. Plus, if you’re moving your website to their hosting service, you get three months of free hosting and a year of free WHOIS protection when you purchase one of their annual packages.
You can back up your website through the easy-to-use cPanel whenever you need to, so you don’t have to rely on others to back up your important data. Using email and chat has been made easier thanks to an intuitive and flexible interface through which you can manage every aspect of your account.
Dinahosting’s modern infrastructure affords you the use of PHP 7.2, lightning-fast SSD storage, and Varnish Cache to enable faster page loading times. If you run out of resources and want to upgrade to a better package, just get in touch with their support team and they’ll help you get the features that you require.
Other notable features included in every hosting plan include:
- One-click installations of popular apps such as WordPress, osCommerce, Moodle, and ATutor
- TomaTransfer file sharing service
- The ability to add forums and galleries to your website with ease
You can also buy a few useful add-ons if you’re willing to pay extra, such as:
- Extra file storage
- GoMobi mobile website builder
- Thawte SSL certificate
- Web and mobile-based SMS services
Pricing & Support
Dinahosting has divided their SSD shared hosting packages into three main categories named Mail, Advanced, and Basic. The mail package is only limited to email accounts, so I’ll consider the other two here. What I like about them is that they list their features in detail so you know exactly what you are getting in each package. They offer limited storage in all their packages, but you can get unlimited traffic in the Advanced package. The Advanced hosting package offers you the choice of Windows or Linux-based hosting. The backup service is included for free. I find their Advanced package a bit on the expensive side, considering they only offer limited disk space.
The Basic hosting package comes with certain limitations. For instance, it doesn’t include any databases, and the support for programming languages is limited as well. If you need to incorporate more complex scripts into your website, you’ll have to go for the pricier package. However, on a positive note, they do provide a 15-day free trial without requiring any credit card information. This allows you to conveniently test either package and determine if they meet your requirements.
They offer support in the form of a 24/7 telephone hotline and live chat. However, the person I communicated with did not speak a lot of English. He was very friendly and answered my questions. However, I was expecting them to transfer me to someone who could speak better English, and they never did. Still, full marks for the commitment he showed. I couldn’t find a way to contact them through email, but it’s quite possible you can get in touch with them through email once you log in.
