Established in 2011, HostArmor is a U.S.-based web hosting provider most popular for forward-looking security solutions as part of their hosting packages. The award-winning hosting company uses some of the most powerful hardware in the hosting space, making their solutions more stable and faster than those of many other vendors.

Overview

HostArmor is a web hosting vendor based in Running Springs, California in the United States. The company was founded in 2011 as a web services provider and offers both shared hosting and dedicated server solutions. HostArmor is most popular for their advanced security features.

Features and Ease of Use

HostArmor’s shared servers use Intel E5 Hex-Core processors and are powered with 64-bit CentOS Enterprise Linux. These servers also use RAID10 with CacheCard and each has at least 12GB RAM. The standard features you will find in HostArmor’s shared hosting packages include:

  • SSD storage
  • Premium bandwidth with 1Gbps port speeds
  • Unlimited subdomains
  • One-click software installer
  • Automatic daily backups
  • Latest version of cPanel

You can also opt to have your hosting account come with WordPress pre-installed, which will be handy for beginners. On top of that, HostArmor has a “no overselling” policy that ensures that you’ll get the resources you’ve paid for. They have a 99.9% uptime guarantee backed by credit, but their actual uptime is typically well above average in the 99.99% range.

With a possible capacity of as many as two million visitors every month on their dedicated servers, HostArmor’s hosting accounts are expansion-ready. This makes it an ideal hosting provider for fast-growing websites. The company has also put considerable effort into making their interface user-friendly especially to accommodate novice webmasters.

Their ArmorPress packages are a big attraction for many webmasters. Essentially, these are full web hosting packages but with an array of security features that make WordPress websites secure in an instant. For businesses that have had to deal with hacks and data breaches on WordPress, this feature is a big plus.

One downside of using this vendor’s services is the fact that they don’t offer customers the ability to upgrade their hard drives or RAM. What’s more, their hosting solutions don’t support a Windows OS. However, for small and medium-sized businesses who don’t require Microsoft-specific features, the resources this brand offers are more than enough.

Pricing and Support

HostArmor’s plans are competitively priced. Their shared hosting plans are particularly affordable for premium SSD shared servers. Even the most basic plan is quite reasonably priced and comes with a pretty decent list of specs. On top of that, HostArmor offers free DDoS protection, a clear contrast to the offers you’d get from other vendors that usually charge a premium price for this feature. In addition, this hosting company offers a 30-day money back guarantee, no questions asked.

HostArmor offers Tier III support at no extra cost. To contact the vendor’s support team, you can use the ticketing system through their app or via their website. You can also get help from their team via telephone, email, or social media channels. They are available 24/7 all year round.

The vendor has no live chat on their website and their knowledge base doesn’t have a lot of information, so, for complex hosting issues, you’ll have to contact their support team. The good news is that their support team is professional and well-versed with everything related to hosting solutions. They are also quite enthusiastic even when resolving customer issues, so I found them a delight to chat with.
