Doze Host is a Bangladesh-based provider of affordable hosting plans. It's a pity I couldn't contact the customer services team to clarify some of the inconsistencies on its website.

Overview

Doze Host

Since starting its journey in 2013, Bangladesh-based Doze Host has provided a diverse set of customers with a comprehensive set of hosting solutions. These hosting solutions include shared hosting, virtual servers, dedicated servers, reseller hosting, and domain services.

Doze Host’s website is in English.

Features and Ease of Use

Doze Host offers four shared hosting packages, nine (managed and unmanaged) VPS packages, four dedicated server packages, and four reseller hosting packages. Note, however, that not all plans can be found on the website’s product pages, so you have to go to the cart to discover them all. There are also some inconsistencies between the product pages and the cart with respect to the available bandwidth and the cost of the cPanel control panel.

As detailed in the cart, the shared hosting packages provide you with:

  • 99.9% server uptime SLA
  • 1 GB to 50 GB storage
  • One to unlimited websites
  • cPanel control panel
  • 50 GB to unmetered bandwidth
  • 25 to unlimited databases
  • Multiple PHP versions
  • Free Let’s Encrypt SSL
  • CSF firewall protection
  • Anti-malware protection
  • Daily backups (except for the initial package)

All packages provide the Softaculous one-click installer that allows you to install a plethora of popular programs such as WordPress (for blogging), OpenCart (for e-commerce), and phpBB (for web forums).

Hosted websites sit on the LiteSpeed web server, which is far faster than standard Apache, and they are backed up remotely. The advertised 99.9% uptime SLA is inconsistent with the terms-of-service that promise a month’s free hosting if uptime falls below 98%, but I couldn’t get the customer services team to clarify this for me (and for you).

Pricing and Support

Doze Host’s shared hosting packages are priced lower than the industry average. You have to pay annually, and you can do so by bKash/Rocket/Bank (their words), PayPal, or credit/debit card.

Whereas the web hosting product page alludes to a 30-day money-back guarantee, both the “about us” page and the knowledge base allude to a lower 7-day money-back guarantee. As with some of the other inconsistencies, I couldn’t get this clarified by the 24/7 customer services team that should be contactable via ticket, contact form, or live chat. I say “should” because — as already hinted — my pre-sales support approaches seemed to fall on deaf ears.

If you have to resort to self-support, you will find a knowledge base containing 23 tutorial-style posts:
