HostLAB’s information-packed Turkish-language website presents prices in Turkish lira, and this host has servers located in Turkey and Germany.
Features and Ease of Use
HostLAB offers various Linux and Windows hosting packages that sit on Turkish and German servers. Some of the key shared hosting features are:
- 99.9% uptime
- Turkish-language cPanel control panel (for Linux)
- English-language Plesk control panel (for Windows)
- LiteSpeed webserver
- SSD storage
- Cloudflare CDN
- Attracta SEO tools
- Free SSL
- Softaculous installer
- DDoS and Botnet protection
- Daily and weekly backups
- Up to unlimited MySQL/MS SQL databases and email accounts
If you’re just starting out, or you’re moving a small website with not much traffic, HostLAB’s four budget “EKO” hosting plans for Linux could provide the resources you need: 250 MB to 5 GB SSD storage, 5 GB to 50 GB bandwidth, and one hosted domain. Professionals with more demanding websites might benefit from the “Pro” packages that provide up to 10 GB SSD disk space, 100 GB to unlimited monthly traffic, and up to unlimited hosted websites.
The cPanel control panel (for Linux) is in Turkish, which is great if you want to use the control panel in your local language. As well as allowing you to manage all aspects of your hosting, cPanel incorporates the Softaculous application installer for many popular content management programs such as WordPress, Joomla, and Drupal.
Pricing and Support
For the features on offer — free SSL, SSD storage, and DDoS protection — HostLAB’s shared hosting prices are cheap-to-moderate among Turkish hosts. You can also get a free domain, free website transfer, and (with the Pro Host 3 and Pro Host 4 plans) two months’ free hosting.
The 7-day 100% risk-free refund is welcome but is shorter than the 30-day refund window offered by many other hosts.
With HostLAB, it’s easy to summon support by telephone, ticket, email, or 24/7 live chat. I was particularly pleased with my live chat interaction:
For self-support, the decent knowledge base is complemented by a blog and some frequently asked questions.
