Egyptian host, HOST T, caters mainly to Arabic customers, but it has servers located in Bulgaria, Australia, Finland, the U.S.A., and the U.K. You get the usual cPanel and Softaculous, and your website sits on CloudLinux.
Egypt-based HOST T (or HostTee) started as an idea 2008 when hosting was still unknown to many in the Arab region. It wasn’t until 2011 that it received its first online order, since when it has continuously improved the provision of quality hosting services.
HOST T’s website is in Arabic, and it has data centers in Bulgaria, Australia, Finland, the U.S.A., and the U.K.
Features and Ease of Use
This host provides the user-friendly cPanel control panel for you to manage your website(s) and hosting; potentially in multiple languages, and even from your tablet. The time-saving Softaculous installer helps you install WordPress, Drupal, and many more web apps without having to do anything as difficult as configuring databases via phpMyAdmin. Just deploy the installer from your cPanel, and follow the steps until you’ve set up your website, blog, or online store.
Besides cPanel and Softaculous, you also get access to the following features:
Free SSL certificate
Unlimited SSD storage
Unlimited email accounts
Unmetered data transfer
Unlimited FTP accounts
Several security features are present to protect your files and resources. You can password-protect your web folders, enable hotlink protection via cPanel, or use Apache’s .htaccess to stop other people from exploiting your bandwidth by linking to your multimedia files or images. You can also use the ModSecurity web firewall to detect and prevent attacks.
Customers are responsible for carrying out backups. However, if you exceed your allowance of 5 GB per account, your account may be suspended, in which case you’ll need to upgrade your backups via the cPanel control panel.
HOST T’s web hosting uses SSD storage for faster performance and greater reliability than HDD storage. Server load is balanced by CloudLinux, which ensures you are protected from the adverse effects of other hosted users. Everything contributes to the industry-average 99.9% uptime.
Pricing and Support
HOST T lets you sign up on a one-, two-, or three-year basis, with no apparent discounts for longer sign-ups. Pay in Egyptian pounds or U.S. dollars via PayPal. According to the information provided, HOST T has to verify your payment by telephone before it can process your order, else your money will be refunded within 48 hours.
If you want something special for your hosting, you can talk to the sales team who will come up with a customized quote. You can make contact via telephone or an online form, or (for technical support) you can submit a ticket 24/7. For self-support, there is a “Library of Explanations” knowledge base, but it doesn’t look to be particularly well populated.
