This vendor’s English-language website states that it introduced its distinctive approach to the U.S. in 2003, and launched its complete product line in the U.S. in 2004, yet it also claims to have been founded 20 years ago (which, at the time of writing, would make 1999 its year of establishment).
Features and Ease of Use
From domain management to website creation, Hostlatte’s cPanel-based hosting accounts come with the tools and resources you need to take your business online. The key features include:
- Hosting for multiple domains
- Unlimited SSD storage
- Unlimited bandwidth
- PHP 5 and MySQL
- CMS app installer
- SSH access
- Webmail, POP3, and IMAP
- 24/7/365 support
The cPanel control includes the Softaculous one-click app installer with over 240 scripts, and you also get a website builder that you can use to create a modern responsive website. Alternatively, you can import your existing website using a web-based file manager or FTP. Then you can password-protect your directories and secure them with free private SSL.
Other security measures include DDoS mitigation, firewall protection, and threat management. Although servers are secure, you can still use the real-time malware scanner to check for malicious scripts attached to your files and emails.
While many hosting companies scratch the surface when it comes to extras, not so Hostlatte, which provides its customers with free SEO tools, instant backups, and Cloudflare CDN support. You can also get dedicated IPs, but at a price.
Shared hosting accounts sit on the reliable CloudLinux platform running on Dell servers with SSD storage for maximum performance. This translates into faster page load times and data transfers.
While this host’s home page says that it delivers 100% uptime but will credit you if the uptime falls below 95%, the shared hosting description page states a 99.99% network uptime guarantee. It’s hard to know which statement is true, but it is clear that you get some sort of uptime guarantee.
Pricing and Support
Hostlatte’s hosting packages are fairly-priced, with no setup fees. You can pay for plans monthly, annually, or biennially, with no apparent discounts for longer commitments. Since there is no advantage to taking a longer term, and you might as well make a month-by-month commitment, you might not care too much about the 30-day money-back guarantee that would get you out if anything goes wrong.
For support, American and Canadian customers can call a toll-free telephone number, and anyone else can start a live chat session, send an email, or open a ticket that should receive a response within 24 hours. If you want to try supporting yourself, you can refer to the limited knowledge base:
