Hosting Egypt is a website hosting provider based in Cairo, Egypt. Established in January 2010, the vendor offers a range of hosting solutions to individuals and SMEs across Egypt and the world over. Some of the hosting solutions you can expect from this vendor include shared web hosting, reseller hosting, dedicated servers, VPS hosting, and domain name registration services. The Hosting Egypt website is only available in Arabic.
Features and Ease of Use
Hosting Egypt website hosting solutions include the following standard features:
- Both Linux and Windows OS
- Free domain name
- Free SSL certificates
- PHP support
- MySQL databases

Hosting Egypt hosting solutions allow customers to choose either Linux or Windows operating systems. Its VPS server solutions come in two packages: Windows VPS and Linux VPS. Both solutions are divided into four plans: VPS EGY 1, VPS EGY 2, VPS EGY 3, and VPS EGY 4.
VPS EGY 1 is the starter VPS package and includes 20GB monthly bandwidth, 50 Mbps internet speed, and 1000GB monthly bandwidth. On the other hand, VPS EGY 4 is this vendor’s advanced VPS package and it comes with 75GB disk space, 100Mbps internet speed, and 2000GB monthly bandwidth.
Hosting Egypt’s shared web hosting solutions come in four packages, including Beginning plan (1GB disk space, 35GB monthly bandwidth), Activity (2GB disk space, 100GB monthly bandwidth), Professionalism (3GB disk space, 250GB monthly bandwidth), and Excellence (unlimited disk space, unlimited monthly bandwidth).
It is worth noting that, although Hosting Egypt offers backup solutions, these backup services are only taken on demand and are not automatic. The hosting company strongly encourages customers to take their own backups to avoid the loss of their website data in the event of a disaster.
The Hosting Egypt website has a notable number of unresponsive links and an apparent design theme code error that reads, “Counter Error: Do not change the code. Click here to show the correct code!”
Pricing and Support
Hosting Egypt hosting solutions are quite expensive, especially given that the hosting solutions include a number of notable feature restrictions. Prices of these hosting plans are listed in Egyptian pounds but unfortunately, customers will have to contact the vendor for the billing cycles.
Hosting Egypt guarantees a refund of 30 days in case customers are dissatisfied with its hosting services, but at the same time, offers no uptime network guarantee.
Customers can contact the Hosting Egypt technical support staff via telephone, ticketing system, or email. Additionally, you can send them a message on their messenger available on the vendor’s website. That said, the hosting vendor does not have live chat support and the technical support team is not available 24/7. Not so surprisingly, my email query to this team received no reply.
Hosting Egypt has a fairly detailed knowledge base.
