Bottom line on Hostlatte

hostlatte1

Hostlatte is an old school US-based web hosting service. Since 2003, they have been offering a wide variety of web hosting services, including some of the best shared hosting services available. Hostlatte appears to be your standard “low-cost web hosting service,” but their products offer a wider variety of features than you’ll find on some of the more popular hosting services.

 

Features and Ease of Use

One advantage of using Hostlatte is that the same features are provided regardless of which plan you choose. Here are a few of the base features you get with a Hostlatte plan:

  • Unlimited SSD storage
  • Unlimited bandwidth
  • cPanel control panel
  • Free website builder

They also offer more advanced features that you usually only receive on more expensive hosting plans:

  • Real-time malware scanner
  • Free SEO tool and SEO submissions
  • CloudFlare Support
  • CloudLinux Servers
  • Instant backups
  • Free private SSL Certificate for all domains

The free SSL Certificate on all domains is a big plus as many plans either don’t offer SSL for all plans or only provide one certificate for your entire plan. For those that run multiple domains, this can save you a lot of money, about $50 per website on average.

Hostlatte is simple to use for webmasters of all skill levels. They offer a simple website builder tool for those that don’t have the skills necessary to build a site from scratch. Alternatively, you have cPanel access if you would rather create the site yourself. They also support WordPress installs for those wishing to develop or transfer a WordPress site to this domain.

 

Pricing and Support

Hostlatte offers three levels of service, but the only difference in the three services is the number of domains you can host. The plans are as follows:

  • Espresso Short – Host up to two domains
  • Espresso Tall – Host up to 10 domains
  • Espresso Grande – Host up to 50 domains

One of the best things about this hosting service is that there isn’t a big difference in price between the three plans. I do wish that the Espresso Grande offered unlimited domains, but most users probably won’t have that “problem.”

Hostlatte doesn’t offer a free plan or trial access, but they do provide a 30-day money-back guarantee.

Overall, I was somewhat disappointed with the support options for Hostlatte. Their knowledge base was insufficient and somewhat random. For example, the WordPress help had topics that the average site owner would never inquire about. The knowledge base needs to be improved with a broader array of topics in all sections.

Also, while the site offers live chat support, it was offline when I attempted to contact them during lunchtime. They also don’t list live chat hours, so it’s unclear when they’re available. Live chat needs to be 24/7, and if not, they need to list the hours of operation.

They do offer a toll-free phone number to the US and Canada, and you can also contact them via email or their online ticketing system.

 

Why Settle for Decaf With Your Website When You Can Hostlatte

Many web hosting services offer a basic set of features and not much else, which is the equivalent of decaf coffee for your website. Hostlatte adds a shot of espresso into your web hosting with the same great features on every plan along with instant backups and a 99.9% uptime guarantee.

Pros

  • Unlimited storage and bandwidth
  • Support two or more domains
  • Free website builder
  • Free SSL Certificate for every domain

Cons

  • Live chat support not 24/7
  • Knowledge base is limited
