According to its Facebook page, Korea-based Dotname was established in 1998. This hosting “old hand” dubs itself “Korea’s leading hosting provider”, and it aims to provide its customers with technologically advanced hosting solutions.
Dotname offers a wide variety of hosting services, including shared hosting, WordPress hosting, cloud hosting, dedicated servers, and virtual servers. Its servers sit in an IDC data center in Korea.
This vendor’s informative website looks messy when translated into English, but maybe it would be less so in its native Korean. All prices are displayed in Korean won.
Features and Ease of Use
Dotname offers a broad spectrum of Linux and Windows shared hosting solutions. Some of the notable features are:
- PHP support
- MS SQL, MySQL, and phpMyAdmin
- FTP access
- ASP.NET, HTML, and Ajax
- Zend Optimizer
- Apache webserver
As you can see, all the hosting essentials are provided, and you get 150 MB to 32 GB storage plus unmetered monthly bandwidth. The CDN speeds up page loading (by caching content locally) and helps protect you against some kinds of cyberattacks.
Dotname makes it easy for beginners and experts alike to experiment with Linux or Windows shared hosting solutions. However, if you don’t care for coding, you can instead use the website builder (at extra cost) that includes 180+ ready-made website templates.
Pricing and Support
Dotname’s prices range from affordable to expensive, but there is sure to be something for everyone. You can get discounts for annual subscriptions, and there is even a free web hosting plan that allows you to try before you buy.
For assistance, you can contact the customer support team by telephone, ticket, or email. And remote assistance is also available. One of the best things about this host is the extensive knowledge base for self-support:
