Hostika features

Features and Ease of Use

Hostika.LT offers Linux VPS, shared cPanel hosting, and dedicated server hosting. Its shared plans are based around the cPanel control panel and all come with unlimited data transfer and unlimited websites that can be hosted on each account.

Data allowances for the shared cPanel plans start with 2,000MB of disk space, five MySQL databases, and 10 email inboxes. These levels increase as you move up through the plans. The higher plans offer 5,000MB-15,000MB of storage, and 50 up to an unlimited number of databases and email mailboxes. All shared cPanel plans also come with:

  • 99.9% uptime
  • 24/7 customer support
  • Anti-virus email protection
  • Softaculous one-click software installer
  • Free SSL certificate
  • Website backups
  • Free subdomain
  • PHP

Shared cPanel hosting comes loaded with the Softaculous software installer. This provides easy installation of hundreds of useful software scripts that can add functionality to your website. Some of these include: WordPress or other content management systems, E-Commerce tools, image galleries, and much more.

A free Let’s Encrypt SSL certificate is issued to every shared hosting customer, as well. This will be automatically installed within 24 hours after a domain is fully parked with its server. For customers needing their own private SSL certificate, they may purchase this separately. However, in order to install this, they will need to order an additional IP address for a monthly fee and choose the level three shared plan.

Pricing and support

Pricing for Hostika.LT plans is extremely competitive. The entry-level shared cPanel plan costs less than a small bottle of water per month and still comes with unlimited bandwidth. Compared to top Lithuanian hosts offering similar plans, these shared plans cost around 25% – 50% less. Prices for other hosting plans such as VPS are closer to average and still represent a good value.

Billing cycles for hosting plans can be set to: semi-annual, annual, biennial, or triennial. Discounts for longer terms than semi-annual start with 5% off for annual, 10% off for biennial, and a 20% discount for a triennial term. At the time of this review, there was also an offer for a 50% discount for first time customers. This discount applies to the first payment/term (up to a three-year term payment).

Forms of payment that Hostika.LT accepts are flexible. They are: debit and credit cards, PayPal, Paysera, WebMoney, Skrill, bank transfer, and over 50 cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin.

Online customer support is provided 24/7 via email ticket, and telephone customer service is available during Lithuanian business hours as well, though not for purposes of technical support. I wrote to customer support with a sales enquiry and I received a helpful response within 20 minutes.
