No-frills hosting provider Global Hosting Service has been in business since 2011. Their plans are cheap, cheerful, and free from overly-complex add-ons.

Overview

Global Hosting Service

Global Hosting Service (GHS) has been providing internet services in Pakistan since 2011. This company has many positive customer reviews, an active Facebook page with more than one hundred thousands followers, and (according to its website) more than 6,000,000 registered domains. The GHS website is in English.

Features and Ease of Use

Global Hosting Service offers a simple selection of shared hosting plans that come with the following core features:

  • 99% uptime guarantee
  • Instant and automatic backups
  • Domain registration available
  • Up to ten add-on domains
  • From 250 MB to 15,000 MB disk space
  • From 2 GB to 200 GB bandwidth

In terms of value added features, all hosting plans come with instant backup so there will always be an automatic backup of your website. What’s less clear is whether these backups can be accessed by clients for free. GHS offers an “advanced control panel,” but it is not entirely clear whether this is actually the popular cPanel or something home-grown.

All plans come with DDoS protection, support for PHP, unlimited FTP accounts and MySQL databases. The website advertises a 99.99% uptime guarantee, but beware that there is no corresponding SLA.

Pricing and Support

The prices are low, which is only fair for the limited features and the non-SLA uptime guarantee. With such low prices, it’s also fair that domain registration and SSL certificates both cost extra. Plans can be bought on one, two, or three-year terms, and the price remains the same regardless of the length of commitment.

You can reach out for 24/7 support by phone, email, WhatsApp, Facebook, and live chat, but I’ve always had to “leave a message” on live chat because they never seem to be online. Website links to their video tutorials, ticket system, blog, and support portal don’t seem to work at all so you’ll have a hard time supporting yourself.

Bottom line on Global Hosting Service

Global Hosting Service is a Pakistani company with millions of registered domains and an active Facebook page. Their website feels like a work-in-progress in places since many of the links to additional information are dead. But you get what you pay for, and with GHS you get a budget brand offering no-frills, fuss-free packages.

Pros

  • The plans are all affordable
  • Customer service is available 24/7
  • Lots of ways to contact the support team
  • Support for PHP is included

Cons

  • Limited information on the website
  • No uptime service level agreement
