HolHost provides contract-free hosting backed by attentive customer service. Its affordable hosting plans come with unlimited bandwidth and a free domain delivered using U.S. and European servers.

Overview

holhost

HolHost is a small hosting company that simply isn’t a match for big brands like Hostinger. The bigger hosting companies simply offer a better price for similar configuration.

Web hosting provider HolHost was founded in 2004. It offers shared Linux, Windows, VPS, cloud, dedicated server, and reseller hosting as well as domain registration services. All web hosting plans come with a free domain, unlimited bandwidth, and no long-term contract.

HolHost has data centers in the U.S. and Europe, and its website is in English.

Features and Ease of Use

HolHost offers contract-free Windows and Linux shared hosting as well as VPS, cloud, and dedicated server hosting. Its shared hosting plans come with a minimum of 10 GB SSD storage, hosting for three websites, and the following features:

  • Free domain with hosting
  • Unlimited bandwidth
  • Unlimited email accounts
  • SSD storage
  • 30-day money-back guarantee
  • Uptime guarantee
  • 24/7 customer support
  • cPanel
  • Software auto-installer

The cPanel control panel gives you easy control over your website, and the Fantastico app installer comes ready to install over 200 scripts for additional website functionality such as WordPress and e-commerce tools.

The top-tier shared Linux plan provides unlimited SSD storage, unlimited websites per account, and (as per all shared hosting accounts) unlimited bandwidth.

Users looking for more advanced hosting could consider one of the unmanaged SSD cloud server plans that start with one Intel Xeon CPU core, 2GB RAM, 25 GB storage, unlimited data transfer, Linux or Windows OS, a U.S. or European data center, and free backups.

The next step on the hosting ladder would be one of the virtual private server plans: OpenVZ Linux VPS, KVM Linux VPS, Windows VPS, or Europe VPS. The OpenVZ VPS plan is powered by Intel Xeon processors with 24 or more cores per system; KVM virtual servers feature unlimited bandwidth and DDoS protection; Windows VPS can be hosted on either the New Jersey or California servers; the Europe VPS features free seven-day backup and a 100% uptime guarantee.

Pricing and support

HolHost’s shared hosting plans’ prices are competitive and comparable with other major hosts in the U.S. and Europe. The entry-level shared Linux plan costs less than a fast food meal per month yet it features unlimited bandwidth, space for three websites, and a free domain. Windows shared hosting can often be more expensive than its Linux equivalent, but with HolHost, Windows and Linux hosting both begin at the same price point.

You can pay for plans monthly, biannually, or annually, but there are no discounts for longer terms.

24/7 customer support can be accessed by filling out an online ticketing form, and I received a response to my support ticket the same day:

holhost

Although HolHost’s website includes what looks like a live chat link (which actually says ‘Online’), this leads to the support ticket submission form. If you’d like to try supporting yourself without contacting the company at all, you’ll be disappointed to find that this provider’s knowledge base contains only one article advising you that, yes, they do allow adult websites!

A Free Domain is included when purchasing any hosting service from HolHost

Very good price and support

I am satisfied! Very good price and support! Quality service! I use hosting gold package for more than 1 year and never have downtime or problems with the speed or connectivity. My SEO score becomes better and my site rank is higher since I use holhost.com

Bottom line on HolHost

Summary

HolHost provides affordable hosting plans using servers in the U.S. and Europe. All shared plans come with unlimited bandwidth and a free domain, but best of all: customer service is attentive.

HolHost might offer a good service at a reasonable price, but does it match up with the top web hosting companies? We find it hard to say “yes.”

  • Unlimited bandwidth with shared hosting
  • Stable 99.9% uptime guarantee
