HostArmada is a relatively new entrant to the web hosting scene. It launched in the last quarter of 2019 and is headquartered in Delaware, U.S.A.
This fast-growing company offers domain services and a variety of cloud-based SSD hosting, including shared hosting, WordPress and WooCommerce hosting, VPS, and dedicated servers. HostArmada has servers in the U.S., Canada, U.K., Germany, India, Singapore, and Australia.
The HostArmada website loads fast, is easy to navigate, and entirely in English. All prices are in U.S. dollars.
Features and Ease of Use
HostArmada uses KVM virtualization and guarantees 99.9% uptime with its cloud infrastructure and Redundant Storage replication. This setup makes it easy to hot-swap hardware (CPU units, RAM, and SSD storage) and reduces the chance of the entire system going down.
HostArmada partners with reputable brands for all its plans, including cPanel, CloudFlare, CloudLinux OS (for faster loading speeds from different locations), LiteSpeed, JetApps, Intel, SpamExperts (for email protection), and Imunify360 (to protect servers from hackers and malware).
This host offers three managed cloud shared hosting plans – Start Dock, Web Wrap, and Speed Reaper. Some of the key features you can look forward to include:
- Unmetered bandwidth
- Cloud SSD Storage
- Free SSL certificate
- Daily backups
- Free domain name
- Free site builder
- Softaculous 1-click installer
With HostArmada shared hosting, you can host from one to unlimited websites. You also get between 15 GB to 40 GB cloud SSD storage space. Cloud SSD drives perform a lot faster than traditional disk drives, hence, boosting your website’s overall speed and performance.
All plans come with unlimited email accounts, unlimited databases, unlimited FTP accounts, and support for multiple PHP versions.
cPanel is the industry-standard control panel, thanks to its extremely user-friendly interface and high functionality. It’s great if you are a beginner or don’t have the time to manage website tasks manually.
The Softaculous one-click app installer gives you access to hundreds of popular applications. And HostArmada’s free drag and drop website builder lets you choose from readymade templates and themes to build your website from scratch. No technical background is required.
Pricing and Support
HostArmada’s shared hosting plans are reasonably priced. You can choose to be billed annually, biennially, or triennially. All plans come with a free domain name and free website migration. HostArmada also offers a generous 45-day money-back guarantee.
It’s worth noting that the WordPress hosting packages are the same price as the shared hosting plans and HostArmada regularly offer promotional discounts.
The HostArmada website has an extensive knowledgebase called Learning Center. Its Learning Center contains a range of tutorials on the different services provided by the company. You can also get in touch with customer support (available 24/7/365) via live chat, ticket, phone, or email.
Even though I didn’t have many questions, I wanted to test its live chat support, so I sent a couple of generic questions. The representative responded instantly and was very helpful.
