Serbian host Hosting022 offers feature-packed hosting plans at affordable prices. However, I found its self-support resources to be insufficient and I never received any answers to my pre-sales support questions.

Overview

hosting22 main

Serbian hosting provider Hosting022 was founded in 2008. It operates its own data center in Serbia, and it offers a range of hosting solutions, including shared hosting, reseller hosting, VPS hosting, dedicated servers, domain registration, and associated services.

Although Hosting022’s Serbian-language website is attractive, it has some missing information and a few broken links. All prices are presented in Serbian dinars.

Features and Ease of Use

hosting22 1

Hosting022’s three shared hosting plans — Standard, Best, and Super Star — differ in terms of disk space, monthly bandwidth, addon domains, and MySQL databases:

  • The Standard plan provides 4 GB of storage, 80 GB of monthly bandwidth, three addon domains, and 3 MySQL databases.
  • The Best plan comes with 8 GB of storage, 180 GB of monthly bandwidth, five addon domains, and 20 MySQL databases.
  • The Super Star plan affords you 10 GB of storage, 500 GB of monthly bandwidth, ten addon domains, and unlimited MySQL databases.

Despite the differences, the hosting plans come with the following common features:

  • Daily backups
  • Free website builder
  • Free SSL certificate
  • Cloudflare CDN
  • CloudLinux
  • cPanel control panel
  • Softaculous installer

Since the hosting plans are referred to as “cPanel hosting plans,” it’s no surprise that they include the popular cPanel control panel for administering all aspects of your hosting. You can use it to manage your website files, FTP accounts, domains, email accounts, backup intervals, and more.

The control panel incorporates the Softaculous installer that helps you install popular programs with just a few clicks, which is as easy as installing an app from your mobile phone’s app store. Supported applications include WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, PrestaShop, Magento, phpBB, TYPO3, and many more.

As an alternative to building a CMS-backed website, you can use the included website builder that has hundreds of ready-made website design templates for you to choose from. The drag-and-drop interface means you don’t have to be a website designer or developer to create a convincing website.

Pricing and Support

Hosting022

Hosting022’s prices are highly affordable. You can choose to be billed monthly, quarterly, semi-annually, annually, biennially, or triennially, and you get a 30-day money-back guarantee when you first subscribe. Pay via PayPal or by initiating a bank transfer.

You should be able to contact this company’s technical support team via telephone, support ticket, email, or live chat. I say “should” because the live chat is almost always offline, and I received no responses to my test support ticket and exploratory email.

Self-support resources are almost as disappointing. The website links to a knowledge base and tutorials lead nowhere, and the actual knowledge base within the support portal is a little limited.

Bottom line on Hosting022

Although Hosting022 provides feature-packed hosting plans at low prices, its limited self-support resources and unresponsive pre-sales support are significantly offputting for me.

Pros

  • Free SSL certificate
  • 30-day money-back guarantee
  • Free website builder
  • Cloudflare CDN

Cons

  • Unresponsive customer support
  • Website is only in Serbian

For feature-rich affordable hosting solutions, head to Hosting022.
