Founded in 2017, Hostlelo is a web hosting company that’s based in India. The company offers shared hosting, dedicated servers, domain registration, and Virtual Private Servers (VPS). Its servers are located in New York, United States. Its website and customer support are available in English.
Features and Ease of Use
Hostlelo offers three categories of shared hosting: regular web hosting, WordPress hosting, and DMCA ignored hosting. If you plan on hosting plagiarized or warez content, you can take the DMCA ignored hosting. WordPress websites should obviously go for WordPress hosting, and other simple websites on regular web hosting.
Shared hosting customers get the following:
- 99.95% Uptime
- Daily automatic backups
- Free SSL
- Up to unlimited addon domains
- Anywhere from 10GB to unlimited SSD
- From 100GB to unlimited bandwidth
If you need high bandwidth, then Hostlelo might be the web host for you. It offers 100GB bandwidth on the lowest plan. You can get up to 500GB bandwidth on web hosting and unlimited on the DMCA ignored hosting.
Hostlelo supports experienced users with the necessary tools such as MySQL databases and PHPMyAdmin for the management of those databases. It supports PHP on its shared servers, but if you use Python for programming, you’ll have to look elsewhere because this web hosting company doesn’t support it.
If you need to do repetitive tasks like regular backups, you don’t have to keep on logging into your server every day. Hostlelo supports cron on all plans. You can create cron jobs to automate managing the tasks.
Hostlelo provides for beginners as well. It has a software installer that customers can use to install applications such as WordPress and Joomla! in one or two clicks. Another advantage of the installer is that you can set when you want it to take backups or update your installed applications and it’s add-ons like themes and extensions/plugins.
Pricing and Support
Hostlelo offers four shared hosting plans under Premium web hosting and WordPress hosting. The two categories are similar given that they offer the same features and resources, but the pricing differs.
While the Premium web hosting is low-cost, WordPress hosting isn’t the lowest you get for those features. There are no distinguishing features on the WordPress hosting, so it’s hard to say if your WordPress website will perform better with any of the plans.
There’s no free trial, but there is a money-back guarantee, though, there’s a bit of contradictory information here. The vendor advertises a 30-day money-back guarantee but when I checked with customer support, I was told that the money-back guarantee is only valid for seven days. That’s not a lot of time.
Hostlelo offers one month, semi-annual, and annual subscription periods on its shared hosting. You can pay with your Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, or PayPal.
You can contact HostLelo’s technical support through live chat, phone, email, and ticket. Its support agents work 24/7. I used the live chat and chatted with an agent who answered all of my questions.
There’s only one article in its knowledge base on speeding up your website, so if you’re a fan of self-support, you’ll be disappointed.
