Hostomy is fine, but fine is not good enough. While Hostomy is a decent web host, you can get better quality hosting at a cheaper price with Hostinger, for example.
Hostomy is a relatively new company that started offering web hosting services in 2016. It now hosts over 1,500 domains for more than 500 happy customers, and these numbers are growing daily. This business takes your business seriously; it offers you high-quality web hosting services with 100% security, responsive support, and guaranteed 0% data loss.
Hostomy’s services include shared hosting, domain registration and transfer, and high-performance SSD cloud servers. The company is planning to launch cloud DNS and WordPress hosting services soon. Its website is in English, and its client area supports twenty-five additional languages.
Features and Ease of Use
Hostomy offers three shared hosting plans: Starter, Advanced, and Pro. They differ in terms of hosted websites (from 1 to unlimited), SSD storage (10 GB to 30 GB), RAM (1 GB to 3 GB), and add-on domains (none to unlimited).
All these plans feature:
- CloudLinux servers and CageFS security
- Daily backups and 24/7 server monitoring
- LiteSpeed Server and unmetered bandwidth
- Guaranteed resources
- Free migration
- Unlimited parked domains and subdomains
- Domain redirects and free DNS management
- Browser optimization
- Let’s Encrypt SSL certificate
- Cron Jobs
- Virus Scanner and SpamAssassin
Hostomy augments the security of its CloudLinux servers with CageFS, which encapsulates every user in their own “cage.” Thus, customers won’t be able to detect or see other users’ processes and sensitive information.
Additional features of Hostomy’s hosting plans include:
- Free website setup
- Softaculous with 300+ free applications
- Live applications demo
- Password-protected directories
- IPv6 support
For e-commerce applications, you can use the Softaculous one-click installer to install Zen Cart, PrestaShop, Magento.
Hostomy also offers cloud servers and domain services (search, registration, renewal, and transfer), and it has an excellent 99.99% uptime guarantee.
Pricing and Support
Although Hostomy’s hosting plans are cheap, it doesn’t compromise on quality.
You can pay for plans on many different billing cycles (from monthly to triennially), with no apparent discounts for longer commitments, but there are discounts of up to 80% to be had on domain registrations. You can pay using the usual methods (PayPal or credit/debit cards), and you get a 14-day money-back guarantee if you sign up for at least a year.
Hostomy’s support seems to be solely by ticket submission and 24/7 live chat, with no other options as far as I can see. I was impressed when I tried the live chat. The very responsive support staff fielded my questions confidently and offered useful suggestions:
Hostomy’s blog might be the best place to start for self-support because its knowledge base contains only two articles. The tutorials in the blog appear to be pretty detailed, but there seems to be only six of them.
