GetLark is a prominent Polish provider of simple yet developer-friendly hosting plans that come with a high-performance proprietary control panel. I'd feel better about this host if I'd been able to summon a pre-sales support response.

Overview

GetLark

Polish hosting provider GetLark aims to provide powerful, user-friendly web hosting solutions. According to its English- and Polish-language website, this host has served more than 5,000 customers since its founding. I can’t tell you exactly when it was founded, but its Facebook page was created in 2016, so it’s at least this old.

Features and Ease of Use

GetLark offers only three shared hosting packages, which are available in the U.S.A. and Europe. Although the website mentions VPS and dedicated server packages that use its proprietary control panel, these don’t seem to be detailed anywhere.

The shared hosting plans provide you with:

  • 99.9% uptime guarantee
  • 35 GB to 300 GB SSD storage
  • Unlimited bandwidth
  • Unlimited email accounts
  • Several versions of PHP, plus Perl and Python
  • MariaDB
  • Git support
  • LiteSpeed and LiteCache
  • Twice-daily backups

The provided one-click app installer allows you to install your favorite CMS and other applications. At the other end of the expertise spectrum, the WP-CLI command-line tools are provided for developers.

A Let’s Encrypt SSL certificate creates a secure connection to your site, and the DDoS protection guards against cyberattacks.

Pricing and Support

GetLark’s shared hosting plans are slightly pricey (in U.S. dollars), and you can pay for them by bank transfer, credit card, PayPal, or Przelewy24.

While quarterly, annual, and biennial billing cycles are available, not all billing cycles are applicable to all packages. You get discounted rates when you sign up for at least a year, and the 30-day money-back guarantee should make you feel better about doing so. The lowest-priced package also affords you a fourteen-day free trial to try before you buy.

You should be able to summon 24/7 support via email or an online contact form, but my test form submission went unanswered. Fortunately, the Support Center includes a generous number of posts, so it’s a pity it looks partially populated:

Bottom line on GetLark

There’s so much more I could say about GetLark, such as its use of 100% SSD storage, its high-performance proprietary control panel, and its free website migration. But while it has a lot going for it, don’t forget that the prices are slightly high and the support team didn’t respond.

Pros

  • 99.9% uptime guarantee
  • 14-day trial period
  • 30-day money-back guarantee
  • Developer-friendly hosting packages

Cons

  • Slightly high prices
  • Unresponsive pre-sales support

For a Polish provider of free and paid hosting plans, get over to GetLark.
