Hostline.BG is a small hosting company that simply isn’t a match for big brands like Hostinger. The bigger hosting companies simply offer a better price for similar configuration.
Hostline.BG is a subsidiary of Inventor Group Ltd, a web software manufacturer based in Bulgaria. The web hosting company has been in operation for over 12 years now. It offers an array of hosting solutions, from shared web hosting to reseller hosting, domain name registration services, dedicated servers, VPS, and SSL certificates. The Hostline.BG website is only available in Bulgarian.
Features and Ease of Use
Hostline.BG web hosting solutions come with the following standard features:
- Cloudflare CDN
- PHP versions selector
- MySQL databases
- DDoS Protection
- SSD Hybrid devices and Xen virtualization
- Access to the PHP-FPM process manager
- Daily backups
- Free Domain
- Free SSL certificates
Thanks to the implementation of the latest hosting technologies, Hostline.BG offers an efficient system that provides no limit on processor time. This means the user’s accounts can run non-stop without any interruptions.
By default, all websites hosted on Hostline.BG platforms are served by Apache 2.4.x and HL-Nginx servers. It also uses LiteSpeed Server Application Programming Interface (LSAPI) as the PHP handler. LSAPI PHP is specially designed to offer less server loading time and it comes with a failover option among other additional features for better hosting performance.
Hostline.BG shared web hosting packages are built on the CloudLinux platform and come with the latest cPanel control panel. These solutions are suitable for small business projects as well as websites with thousands of visitors. The hosting solutions offer stability as well as speed and are equipped with a variety of hosting features, including PHP versions 5.2-7.0, MySQL databases, and phpMyAdmin as well as security features such as Cloudflare CDN, DDoS protection, and SSL certificates.
Hostline.BG takes the security of its customers’ website data very seriously. The vendor guarantees daily backups for all files and databases of its clients to ensure maximum security. The backups are sent to an independent backup center where they are stored and can be easily restored in case of a system failure or in the event of a disaster.
Pricing and Support
Hostline.BG hosting packages are reasonably priced, and come with flexible billing cycles where customers can make monthly, quarterly, semi-annual, annual, and biennial payments. Moreover, its shared and reseller hosting solutions come with 10% and 15% discounts for annual and biennial subscriptions respectively (at the time this review was written). All prices are listed in Bulgarian lev.
Hostline.BG shared and reseller hosting solutions offer a 30-day money-back guarantee while VPS servers come with a 15-day money-back guarantee. Its SLA policy also seems to differ from one package to another. While its VPS offers a 99.999% uptime guarantee, with leased server solutions customers get to enjoy a 99.95% uptime guarantee.
Hostline.BG 24/7 customer support is available via telephone, email, live chat, and ticketing system. I sent an email query to this vendor’s support team but it was rejected. The hosting company informed me that it only accepts queries from existing customers.
Although Hostline.BG has support documentation, the link that I found to these documents appears invalid.
