Hostic offers shared and reseller hosting services, dedicated servers, domain services, and SSL certificates.
Features and Ease of Use
Hostic offers six shared hosting plans (including three WordPress plans), three Linux reseller hosting plans, and seven dedicated servers. The three shared web hosting plans provide you with:
- Linux OS
- 99.9% uptime
- Free cPanel control panel
- 2 to 10 hosted websites
- 10 GB to 40 GB disk space
- Unmetered bandwidth
- 50 to unlimited email accounts
- Free SSL certificate for life
- 10 to unlimited subdomains
- 10 to unlimited MySQL databases
- PHP, Perl, Python, and PostgreSQL support
- Zend Engine, Zend Optimizer, Zend Guard Loader, and ionCube Loader
Hosted websites sit on high-performance servers, and page loading speeds can be improved even more by opting for the Cloudflare CDN that caches content close to visitors and helps protect you against some kinds of cyberattacks.
At extra cost, you can get SpamExperts email security, the Weebly website builder, and CodeGuard backups. The four Weebly website builder plans allow anyone to create a professional-looking website with e-commerce features and without having to be a technical expert.
Dedicated servers come with DDoS mitigation to protect you from distributed denial of service attacks.
Pricing and Support
Hostic’s shared hosting plans are cheap, but they become a lot more pricey when you add extras such as SiteLock, SpamExperts, CodeGuard, and Weebly. The Standard and Professional WordPress hosting plans come with a free domain.
You can pay for plans monthly or annually (which is cheaper), but it looks like the only payment method may be Bitcoins. According to the website, you get a 15-day money-back guarantee, which gives you two weeks to change your mind.
You should be able to summon 24/7 customer support via telephone, ticket (logged-in users), live chat, or email. I say “should” because, unfortunately, my contact form submission went unanswered. For self-support, you’ll be similarly disappointed because the knowledge base contains only three entries:
