HostingIT is a low-cost Croatian host. So far, so good, but some information is missing from its website, and I was unable to summon any pre-sales support response.

Overview

HostingIT

HostingIT is a subsidiary of Croatian company DHH. Unfortunately, this host’s Croatian-language website doesn’t say when it was established or exactly where its servers are located, but it does mention an EU data center.

Features and Ease of Use

HostingIT offers four shared hosting plans (with one available in the cart), four VPS plans, and nine dedicated servers. The four shared hosting plans provide you with:

  • CloudLinux OS
  • cPanel control panel
  • 1,000 MB SSD to 10,000 MB SSD disk space
  • 100 GB to unlimited traffic
  • 1 to 5 parked domains
  • Up to 5 addon domains
  • 10 to 50 email accounts
  • 1 to 5 MySQL databases
  • 1 to 5 FTP accounts
  • Webmail, and MailScanner to reduce spam

The included Softaculous auto-installer provides more than 230 scripts to install CMS and other popular applications for blogging, wiki, and e-commerce. It means you can set up your website without too much technical expertise.

HostingIT uses SSDs for faster data read/write speeds and greater reliability than you get with traditional HDDs. Its dedicated servers utilize RAID 1 redundancy to help protect you against disk data disasters. This host’s website alludes to 99.9% uptime, which around the industry average.

Besides paid hosting, HostingIT offers free hosting when you register a new commercial domain. This free plan provides 50 MB space, access to the cPanel control panel, and one e-mail address, but no support for PHP or databases.

Pricing and Support

HostingIT’s shared hosting plans start dirt-cheap. You can pay them in Croatian kuna or euros by PayPal, bank transfer, credit/debit cards, or wire transfer (for foreign currency payments). You can pay half-yearly (apart from the smallest package), yearly, or every two years, and you get an apparently-amazing 90-day money-back warranty, which comes with the caveat that it relates to services issues that the company can’t fix.

Contact the customer support team via ticket or email. Although support tickets are described as “the fastest way to solve problems,” my pre-sales support ticket received no response. If you have to resort to self-support, you’ll find an acceptable (but not exceptional) knowledge base:

Bottom line on HostingIT

HostingIT could be a good choice for dirt-cheap Croatian hosting. The downsides are the lack of pre-sales support, and some information missing from the website.

Pros

  • Dirt-cheap pricing
  • Free web hosting with commercial domain registration
  • 90-day money-back warranty
  • Multiple payment methods

Cons

  • Some information missing from the website
  • Unresponsive pre-sales support

Get low-cost Croatian hosting from HostingIT.
