Founded in 2009 by Saleh Ahmed, ExonHost was initially called obosor.com. After a few years and multiple name changes, the company rebranded and changed its name to ExonHost in 2015.
ExonHost offers shared hosting, reseller hosting, Virtual Private Servers (VPS), dedicated servers, and domain names. Its servers are located in Dallas, Los Angeles, and New Jersey in the United States. The company’s web page is available in English.
Features and Ease of Use
ExonHost offers four shared hosting plans with storage space ranging from 1GB to 50GB. Along with that feature are these that it provides customers with:
- 99.9% uptime guarantee
- Free SSL certificate
- Free domain name with the top plan
- From one to unlimited websites
- Bandwidth from 50GB to unlimited
ExonHost provides the cPanel control panel. Dubbed one of the easiest to use and quite popular in this hosting industry for this, customers shouldn’t have a hard time understanding and becoming familiar with the interface.
This control panel has a one-click installer that enables you to setup content management systems like WordPress and other web applications quickly and easily. Furthermore, the tool can take care of automatic updates of your application and extensions – plugins, themes, and the likes, to maintain a high level of security.
Slow loading of websites is one reason for high bounce rates. Many visitors won’t wait forever for your website to load. Aside from the optimizations that you can do yourself, the major part is the server. ExonHost knows that, and as such, provides sufficient RAM and core limits for its plans. Those should work for websites that should be in shared servers.
Furthermore, the top two plans provide additional optimization for WordPress websites. Also, the company uses fast Solid State Disks and the high-performance LiteSpeed webserver. That’s not all, though. ExonHost also uses Memcache on its server to cache and store the results from database queries to speed up the website for subsequent visitors.
Pricing and Support
Pricing is a big factor for us. Regardless of how great the features are, if the prices are too high, we wouldn’t want to try it out. For ExonHost, I’ll admit that some of its plans are a bit more expensive than regular shared hosting. Nevertheless, the range ExonHost has isn’t excessively expensive for the features it offers.
Some free perks that you’ll get with it are free SSL certificates, free website migration to its servers, and for those on the top plan and willing to pay for a year, a free domain.
One downside with ExonHost is that some of its plans do not provide a monthly billing option. The starter plan, for example, can only be purchased for one year, two years, or three years. However, some plans, like the Turbo Diesel+ (top plan) allow payments for one month, six months, one year, two years, and three years.
It accepts bKash, Rocket, Bank/Cash, Walletmix, and Paypal/Credit Card. Once you pay, your account is set up and activated instantly.
If you’re still uncertain and are looking to test its plans first, there’s no free trial. However, there is a 30-day money-back guarantee.
Customer support is available 24/7 through live chat, phone, knowledge base, and ticketing system. I tried the ticket option and got a reply in less than an hour.
