Romanian company Hosterion started out in 2004 under the name Elvsoft, and it took its present name in November 2016 to emphasize the “hosting” aspect of its business. Hoterion’s website is available in Romanian and English, and its cart area can be switched into several additional languages.
Features and Ease of Use
Hosterion offers 20 shared hosting packages (five Linux, five Windows, five Magento, and five Premium Linux), 10 VPS packages, and 11 dedicated server solutions (mentioned only in the cart).
The Linux shared hosting packages provide you with:
- 99.9% uptime SLA
- 10 GB to 100 GB space
- Unlimited traffic
- cPanel control panel
- Four to unlimited hosted domains
- Unlimited emails
- Unlimited databases
- Shared IPv4 address and a dedicated IPv6 address
- Free SSL certificates
- Softaculous one-click installer
- Anti-hack and anti-spam
- Daily backups
The Anycast DNS provides benefits such as higher accessibility, improved network resilience, and better defense against DDoS attacks. SSH access allows you to access your server securely from anywhere in the world.
Hosterion has some other notable offerings, including Magento Hosting (for e-commerce) and KVM virtualization (for a more reliable and performant VPS).
Pricing and Support
Hosterion’s Linux shared hosting plans are competitively priced, and they’re more competitive when you opt for at least annual billing. Other billing cycles range from monthly to triennial, and the 30-day money-back guarantee should make you feel better about making a major commitment (because you have a chance to end your contract early). You can pay for plans only in euros, via various methods such as credit/debit card and bank transfer.
For self-support, Hosterion’s knowledge base contains a good number of articles, and it also boasts a blog with lots of posts. If these resources don’t answer all your questions, you can summon 24/7 support via telephone, ticket, or email. I received a rapid reply to my support ticket:
