This host’s English-language website sells shared hosting (including CMS hosting), domain hosting, reseller hosting, Linux/Windows VPS, container VPS, storage VPS, domain services, and SSL certificates. Its website is in English, and to date, it has served 10,000+ customers.
Features and Ease of Use
Hostkoss offers one free hosting plan (but you have to pay for domain registration) plus 16 shared hosting plans, four domain hosting plans, three reseller hosting plans, and 40 VPS plans of various kinds.
The “cheap hosting plans” provide you with:
- cPanel control panel
- 2 to 25 hosted websites
- 500 MB to 10,000 MB disk space
- Unlimited bandwidth
- 50% to 100% CPU
- 128 MB to 512 MB RAM
- 2 to 25 MySQL databases
- PHP 5.4 to 7.2
- Free SSL certificate
- DDoS protection
- Weekly backups
The three higher plans include the Softaculous auto-installer that lets you install popular CMS and other programs such as WordPress, Joomla, and Drupal. And you don’t need to be a web expert to do so.
Hosted websites sit on SSD storage that is far faster and more reliable than HDD storage, and you get a good 99.97% uptime guarantee.
VPS plans support SSH connections (so you can access your server securely and remotely), and they allow root access for complete control of your server. Upgrade your operating system, add or remove applications, and more.
Pricing and Support
Hostkoss’s shared hosting plans are dirt-cheap, and (at the time of this review), the promotions page is offering discounts of up to 60% off web hosting and VPS packages. You will also see free domain registration advertised, but I couldn’t find any additional details other than the allowed .com, .org, .net, .info, or .biz extensions.
You can pay for plans in U.S. dollars by LiqPay or WayForPay on monthly-to-annual billing cycles, and you get a 14-day money-back guarantee on everything except domain registration. But wait! You can try before you buy thanks to a 30-day free trial.
Contact the 24/7 technical support team via telephone, ticket, email, live chat, or online contact form. While live chat was offline when I wanted to try it, my pre-sales email inquiry received a rapid reply:
For self-support, there is a well-stocked knowledge base and a blog with posts arranged into website, cPanel, and hosting categories.
