It’s hard to find any hard evidence to support HosterPK’s claim to be one of the top Pakistani hosts, but what I can tell you is that their 3000 customers enjoy affordable plans with top-notch features and excellent customer service.

Overview

HosterPK

HosterPK has been providing shared hosting, reseller hosting, VPS hosting, dedicated server hosting, and domain registration services since 2009. The company now serves more than 6000 websites for 3000 mainly-Pakistani customers. Their own website is in English.

Features and Ease of Use

hosterpk 1

This is a full-service company that offers the full range of hosting services with the following core features:

  • 99.96% server uptime maintained for the last 3 years
  • Automatic server-side backups plus cPanel backups
  • Free domain registration
  • Unlimited add-on domains with some plans
  • SSL certificates available at additional cost
  • From 1000MB to unlimited disk space
  • From 20GB to unlimited bandwidth

Beginners get the RVsitebuilder website builder for free, which is good because some hosting companies charge extra for this, and you can even test the tool without registration before signing up. You also get the premium Softaculous one-click installer with more than 250 programs.

You can choose between Linux and Windows hosting plans, with Linux being the better bet for beginners. Linux plans support PHP (both versions 5 and the faster version 7), and they also support Ruby on Rails, SSH access, and SFTP. Windows plans support various versions of ASP.NET. While this provision is pretty good, it would be nice to see support for Python and other advanced coding languages.

In terms of the infrastructure, this host uses SSD RAID 10 for faster performance and less risk of data loss. The company claims to have maintained more than 99.96% server uptime for the last three years, and they offer a 99.9% uptime guarantee (not backed by an SLA).

Pricing and Support

HosterPK’s prices are lower than competitors in Pakistan and around the world, and I’m happy that this host offers good value for money for the resources you get. You have to pay extra for an SSL certificate, website security, and an email account, but you get a free domain (.com, .net, .org, or .info) with all hosting packages.

The payment terms one, two, or three years with a slight reduction in the monthly fee for the longer terms but not enough to convince me to sign up for the full three years. If you’re equally unsure, you can take advantage of the 30-day free trial that allows you to try before you buy.

24/7 support can be accessed by email, chat, telephone, and ticket. I’ve spoken to their support operators a few times on live chat and have always found them to be pleasant, helpful, and effective. This is a good thing because there is no knowledge base or other support documentation on their website.

Bottom line on HosterPK

Overall, I’m pleased with the level of service provided by HosterPK. While not outstanding in any one particular area, they do tick a lot of boxes – a website building tool, one-click installer, support for PHP, and 24/7 customer service – all at a good price. My minor gripes are the lack of a knowledge base, no uptime SLA, and the fact that the servers are co-located with another company.

Pros

  • Very affordable plans
  • 24/7 customer support
  • Free website building tool
  • Support for PHP and Ruby on Rails

Cons

  • No knowledge base
  • Uptime guarantee is not backed by an SLA
