Web hosting provider Hostis Telecom is based in the university city of Iași in Romania. This provider takes pride in its years of experience: twelve in web hosting, seven in data security, ten in server administration, seven in web design, and four in SEO services. It offers web hosting, reseller hosting, VDS, and dedicated servers, plus domain registration and SSL certificates.
Although most of its customers choose Hostis Telecom’s Bucharest-based datacenter, it also uses partner data centers in Iași and Timișoara. This vendor’s website is in Romanian.
Features and Ease of Use
Hostis Telecom offers five shared web hosting plans, five reseller hosting plans, five dedicated virtual servers, and five server colocation plans. The Business plan provides you with a free domain (when you sign up for at least a year), and all shared web hosting plans come with:
- SLA-backed 99.99% uptime guarantee
- 1 to 10 hosted domains
- Up to 10 parked domains
- cPanel control panel
- 1,000 MB to unlimited disk space
- 15 GB to unlimited monthly traffic
- Up to 10 MySQL databases
- 2 to unlimited email accounts
- Daily backups
Shared hosting plans also include the Softaculous one-click installer that helps you install a range of apps from blogs and forums to virtual shops. The reseller plans (except the Starter plan) also provide a free SiteBuilder to build professional-looking websites without design or coding knowledge.
Building a web presence is one thing, but you also need to promote your website, so Hostis offers a Google Voucher package that includes a hosting plan, a .ro domain, and vouchers for Google AdWords.
Thanks to its use of SolusVM, Hostis can create you a VPS within minutes, and you can easily manage it yourself via a web interface. If you resell VPS services to other customers, they can be grouped into a single control panel.
Hostis Telecom’s data center employs anti-earthquake systems, server cooling systems, and superfast internet connectivity for reliability and performance.
Pricing and Support
Hostis Telecom’s shared hosting plans are cheap. Although the prices are displayed in euros, you can pay in Romanian leu via PayPal, bank transfer, or debit/credit card, on billing cycles from quarterly to triennial. If you’re tempted to sign up for a long stretch, you’ll be pleased to see the 30-day money-back guarantee that should get you out sooner if you change your mind.
Hostis Telecom can be contacted via live chat, telephone, ticket, email, Skype, or online contact form. You can also reach the company via Facebook or Twitter, but neither social media presence is particularly active. Unfortunately, the live chat was unavailable when I wanted to try it, and my exploratory email went unanswered. For self-support, you can refer to the company’s “frequent questions” knowledge base:
