Host Explore is an American hosting provider with servers also in Singapore, Canada, and the U.K. Its hosting plans are inexpensive.

Overview

Host Explore

Since starting its journey in 2004 (according to its Facebook page), Host Explore has provided quality hosting solutions to a wide range of worldwide clients. Its English-language website says that this host has hosted more than 200,000 websites to date.

Features and Ease of Use

Host Explore offers 6 shared hosting packages (between the U.S.A. and Singapore), 16 VPS packages (in the U.S.A, Canada, and Singapore), 6 reseller hosting packages, and 9 dedicated server packages (in the U.S.A., Canada, and Singapore). Note that the product page doesn’t advertise all of these packages, and some of them only appear in the shopping cart.

Host Explore’s shared hosting plans in the U.S.A. provide you with:

  • SLA-backed 99.9% uptime guarantee
  • 10 GB to 40 GB disk space
  • 100 GB to unlimited bandwidth
  • cPanel control panel
  • Unlimited MySQL databases
  • Unlimited FTP accounts
  • Unlimited email accounts
  • DDoS protection
  • SSL certificate
  • Website builder
  • Server backups

The included Softaculous installer helps you install a huge number of applications with a single click (and without technical knowledge). And the Cloudflare CDN improves your page loading speeds internationally as well as protecting you from some kinds of cyberattacks. RAID 10 on its enterprise-level SAN storage servers protects you against disk data disasters.

This host’s Class C SEO hosting packages should assure you a better search engine ranking.

Pricing and Support

Host Explore’s U.S.A.-based shared hosting packages are cheap. You can pay for them in U.S. dollars on a monthly, quarterly, semi-annual, annual, biennial, or triennial basis via PayPal. The 30-day money-back guarantee gives you a month to get out of your commitment if you’re not happy with the service.

At the time of writing this review, some of this host’s website links (e.g., to resources and product pages) weren’t working correctly, and its self-support knowledge base was found to contain only one entry. However, you can contact the 24/7 technical support team via email, a ticket system, and supposedly live chat, and I’m pleased to say that my test ticket submission was answered in about two hours:
