It also offers free website hosting through its partner company, 000webhost.com.

Features and Ease of Use
Hosting24’s web hosting offerings include shared Linux hosting, WordPress optimized hosting, cloud hosting, and VPS hosting.
The three shared hosting plans – Single, Premium, and Business – include a website builder, a one-click software installer, as well as BitNinja server security.
The entry-level Single web hosting plan comes with hosting for one website, 10 GB of disk space, 100 GB of monthly bandwidth, one MySQL database, and one email account.
The Premium plan provides you with hosting for unlimited websites, 20 GB of disk space, unlimited bandwidth, MySQL databases, and email accounts. This level also includes WordPress optimization and a free domain with annual plan purchase.
Shared hosting plans feature:
- 99.9% server uptime guarantee
- Free domain with an annual hosting plan
- Cloudflare DDoS protection
- Website builder
- SSL certificate included with some plans
- SSD storage with VPS hosting
Customers with no coding knowledge could be interested in the Zyro website builder that is included with shared hosting plans. This free drag-and-drop website builder starts you off with preset themes that you can fully customize. These multi-language themes are optimized for desktop, mobile, and tablet screen sizes, and there are e-commerce shopping cart options too.
Hosting24 also offers free website hosting through its sister company, 000webhost.com, which we’ve reviewed separately.
Pricing and Support
Hosting24’s shared website hosting is very competitively priced, with its entry-level plan (sufficient for a single website) costing less than a cup of coffee per month. The Premium and Business plans are also nicely-priced and include unlimited bandwidth plus additional storage. The only caveat is that you have to commit to a couple of years to get the best prices, but the 30-day money-back guarantee might make it easier for you to make this commitment.
Plans can be bought on quarterly, annual, biennial, and triennial term lengths, with discounts of 21% to 57% available for longer terms. You can pay with PayPal, credit card, or cryptocurrencies.
24/7 support is advertised, and it can be accessed via email. Although there is also a live chat option, this always seems to require you to leave a message. I was fortunate enough to receive a response within one hour of filling out the company’s online contact form.
For self-support, there is a pretty comprehensive knowledge base.
