Hostripples has made a name for themselves in their short five-year existence by offering webmasters expanded options for their web hosting. Their standard features allow for any webmaster from rank beginner to seasoned pro the capability of creating the perfect website.

Overview

hostripples1

Hostripples 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.

Hostripples has been in business for over five years, and in that time, they now host sites for over 50,000 clients at over 15 data centers around the world. Also, to offer a wide selection of hosting options, their standard features list outperforms those of many high-priced web hosting services.

Features and Ease of Use

With Hostripples, you have the option to choose from SSD cPanel hosting, Linux hosting, or Asp.net/Windows web hosting. All hosting is located on high-quality servers that include redundant and backup power supplies and a nearly 100% uptime guarantee.

Whether you’re wanting to build a basic blog or to develop a robust business website, you’ll find plenty of tools to do so with Hostripples. They offer the following features standard on all plans:

  • Free site builder
  • 1-click installer for 419 scripts, 119 PHP classes, and numerous CMS apps
  • Free migration
  • Unlimited bandwidth and storage (except SSD hosting)
  • Unlimited email accounts

If you’re looking for a host that can provide more robust features or greater control over your site, Hostripples will do that as well. Some of their advanced features include:

  • Backups twice a week
  • Cloudflare protection
  • Cron jobs
  • CGI/Perl supported
  • Image Magick supported
  • Free SSL certificate
  • AttractSEO tools

If you’re worried about website security and preventing DDoS attacks, Cloudflare protection is an excellent added benefit and one that few sites offer as part of their standard features. Support for CGI and Cron jobs is also somewhat rare. If you want to keep your data secure or want to sell products online, SSL certificates are a must, and Hostripples offers this for free.

Hostripples couldn’t make it much simpler to get your site online. For beginners, you have access to a website builder and Softaculous web-app installer. Install WordPress and other CMS apps in just one-click. You have full cPanel access along with FTP uploads to build your site the way you want.

Pricing and Support

Each hosting plan (SSD, Linux, and Windows) offers three service levels, all having many of the same features with the key differences noted below.

Domains110Unlimited
Subdomains530Unlimited
Domain Aliases530Unlimited
Database Size200mb900mbUnlimited
MySql Databases210Unlimited
Mailing Lists1025Unlimited
SSD Plan Storage5GB20GB50GB

Note that SSD hosting has limits on their data storage. I would prefer this to be unlimited like the other plans. I also would like that all plans got a free domain, even if you had to pay annually to get it.

One advantage to picking with SSD hosting or Linux hosting is that you can choose your data center. For SSD hosting, you have a choice of data centers in the UK, India, or Poland. For Linux hosting, you can choose from 17 datacenters including the U.S., U.K., Canada, Germany, Italy, and the Netherlands.

While there’s no free access available, they offer a 30-day unconditional money back guarantee on all plans.

Hostripples has one of the more impressive support setups that I’ve seen. They have quite an extensive knowledge base as well as a downloads section where you can get manuals, programs, and other files to help build your site.

You can reach support directly via email, phone, or through live chat. I was able to connect with customer support in about 30 seconds and was able to get a relatively fast answer to my question. I recommend you ask at least one question after joining to prevent any communication problems.

Very good experience so far

I have hosted my e-commerce site with host Ripples and so far I am pretty much impressed with their support team and service. If anyone of you is looking for good hosting at an affordable price I would personally recommend you to go for Host Ripples.

Bottom line on Host Ripples

Hostripples Will Help You Make a Big Splash With Your Website

Hostripples offers more options for web hosting than the majority of shared hosting providers. Their outstanding standard features make it easy to create any sized website and gives you the tools necessary to make it successful.

Hostripples 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.”

Pros

  • Unlimited storage and bandwidth on many plans
  • Free site builder
  • Softaculous application installer
  • Free migrations

Cons

  • SSD plans have storage limits
  • Free domains not offered on all plans
