Features and Ease of Use
Hostixo offers several shared hosting plans categorized as Affordable Hosting, Unlimited Hosting, Corporate Hosting, Windows Hosting, and WordPress Hosting. It also offers four cloud servers and four Linux/Windows virtual servers plus dedicated servers located in Turkey, France, the U.S.A., and Germany.
The affordable plans provide you with:
- Turkish control panel
- 1 GB to unlimited disk space
- 10 GB to 50 GB traffic
- 10 to 20 emails
- 1 to 5 MySQL databases
- 2 GB reserved RAM
- Free Let’s Encrypt SSL
- PHP versions 7 and 5
- Free website migration
This provider’s servers are compatible with commonly used software such as Joomla, WordPress, PrestaShop, Open Cart, phpBB, Vbulletin, Mybb, and SMF. Those applications can easily be installed via the Softaculous installer; no technical knowledge required. Alternatively, the Ready Site plans provide a drag-and-drop website builder with 350 SEO-friendly design templates and a free domain.
You can manage your cloud or VPS hosting with the Cyberpanel or CentOS Web Panel, or you can pay for cPanel or Plesk.
The use of dual processors, SSD storage, and the LiteSpeed Web Server (which is ten times faster than Apache) ensure your website operates at peak performance. CloudLinux with CageFS isolates you from the adverse effects of other “badly behaved” hosted users. Although Hostixo offers a 99% uptime guarantee, this is below the industry average.
Pricing and Support
Hostixo’s shared hosting plans are cheap. You can pay in U.S. dollars or Turkish lira by bank transfer or credit/debit card, but note that PayPal is not available in Turkey. Available billing periods are annual, biennial, and triennial, and you get a fifteen-day return period for web hosting, reseller hosting, WordPress hosting, and corporate hosting plans.
Hostixo’s knowledge base is empty, so self-support resources seem to be limited to a company blog that contains some informative posts. One-to-one support can be summoned via telephone, ticket, email, live chat, or online contact form. I got some quick answers to my queries via the live chat channel:
