HostMero offers shared hosting, cloud hosting, VPS hosting, WordPress hosting, dedicated servers, and domain registration from a golabl website which displays prices in U.S. dollars but which can be switched to local versions with local currencies for Nepal, India, Bhutan, and Australia.
Features and Ease of Use
HostMero offers three kinds of shared hosting: Unlimited Hosting, Premium Hosting, and Cheap Shared Hosting. As its name suggests, the Unlimited Hosting comes with much higher resource allocations than the limited Cheap Shared Hosting. The Premium Hosting sits somewhere in the middle.
All the shared hosting packages come with these standard features:
- SSD storage
- 99.99% uptime guarantee
- Free website builder
- cPanel control panel
- Softaculous installer
- Free domain (with the Unlimited Hosting)
- Cron jobs
- SSH access
- Free SSL certificate
- Daily backups
The popular cPanel control panel provides a user-friendly interface for managing all aspects of your hosting, including website files, FTP accounts, email accounts, domains, and backup intervals. The incorporated Softaculous one-click application installer makes it easy to install hundreds of content management and other apps such as WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, PrestaShop, Magento, OpenCart, Typo3, and phpBB.
If you don’t want a CMS-backed website, you can instead use the free website builder. It comes with ready-made website templates which you can customise via a drag-and-drop interface without having to be a professional web designer or developer.
Pricing and Support
In comparison with its international competitors, HostMero’s prices are affordable for the features you get. You can pay by bank transfer, PayPal, credit/debit card, or eSewa, on monthly to biennial billing cycles. You get a somewhat short 7-day money-back guarantee to get you out within the first week if anything goes wrong.
Although each product page includes a small set of frequently asked questions, the link to the additional knowledgebase doesn’t work, so self-support resources are scarce. If you therefore need to call on one-to-one support, you can do so via telephone, ticket, email, or live chat. I got answers to my questions via the live chat channel:
