For a relatively recent entrant to the hosting market, Bangladesh-based Hostcredo comes across as a credible host, and its hosting plans are backed by responsive pre-sales support.


Overview

Hostcredo OverviewHostcredo is a relatively recent entrant to the Bangladeshi hosting market. It offers shared hosting, VPS hosting, dedicated servers, and domain registration, and it has servers in several locations: the U.S.A., the U.K., Singapore, Portugal, Germany, Brazil, Japan, and Australia.

Hostcredo’s well-organized and informative website is available in English and it presents prices in U.S. dollars.

Features and Ease of Use

Hostcredo’s shared hosting plans are available at two locations: the U.S.A. and Singapore. There are four price plans at each location, and the Singapore plans provide higher resource allocations in terms of email accounts, databases, and bandwidth.

The shared hosting accounts typically include these features:

  • 99.9% uptime guarantee
  • SSD storage
  • Daily backups
  • cPanel control panel
  • Softaculous installer
  • Free SSL certificate
  • Cloudflare CDN
  • SSH access

Hosted websites sit on SSD storage for faster performance and higher reliability than traditional HDD storage. The Cloudflare CDN improves page loading speeds while protecting against some kinds of cyberattacks. The daily backups help to safeguard your data.

Hosting accounts are administered using the popular cPanel control panel that lets you manage all aspects of your hosting, including website files, FTP accounts, email accounts, domains, databases, and backups. The incorporated Softaculous installer helps you install popular content management and other applications such as WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, Magento, PrestaShop, OpenCart, Typo3, and phpBB.

Pricing and Support

Hostcredo’s prices are competitive compared with international competitors, but you pay more for the higher resources of the Singapore plans compared to the American ones. You can pay by PayPal or credit cards on a monthly, annual, or biennial basis, but you only get a 7-day money back guarantee (the usual is 30 days) to get you out if you’re not entirely happy.

The several sets of frequently asked questions — general, and service-specific — are useful but are no substitute for a well-populated knowledge base. So, if you still have questions, you can contact the customer support team by telephone, ticket, email, or live chat. I got instant answers to my questions via the live chat channel:
