HostOne offers shared hosting and VPS from Pakistan. Its prices are affordable with a free domain on the shared hosting plans. It only provides phone and email support.

Overview

HostOne

HostOne is a Pakistan based company that was launched in 2011. It provides its services to customers in Pakistan and has so far served more than 2000 customers. The website is available in English only. The company offers web hosting, reseller hosting, Virtual Private Servers (VPS), and web development services.

Features and Ease of Use

HostOne offers six web hosting plans targeting five cities in Pakistan. If you take any of the plans, you get the following:

  • 99.99% uptime
  • Free domain registration
  • Anywhere from 1GB to 150GB storage space
  • Unlimited bandwidth

HostOne supports PHP for programming and not much else. You can either code directly with the framework or install a php-based application like WordPress to develop your website. The company provides a one-click installer to customers so that they don’t have to bother about databases when installing the web application.

If you don’t know how to use a CMS and would rather have a website builder with modules or drag and drop editor, you can consider this company. It provides a website builder tool in the cPanel of customers for simple company websites and e-commerce stores.

HostOne’s shared hosting is simple at best. It doesn’t provide top-notch features such as CloudLinux operating system in the servers or enhanced performance and speed with CloudFlare CDN connection.

It mentions that shared hosting websites on its servers might be slow and customers are better off on its VPS or dedicated server plans where you get an entire web server or draw processing power, memory usage, and storage from different cloud servers.

Pricing and Support

HostOne offers low-cost shared hosting plans. They are pocket-friendly and also come with a free domain name registration (.com .net .org). You can only pay for one year; no month subscription period available.

The quoted prices on VPS are not so expensive and I noticed they are for annual subscription despite the quote being monthly on the VPS page.
It only accepts bank transfer which makes this inconvenient for people that are outside Pakistan because an international transfer may take some business days to record putting a drag on your setup time.

Another gripe with the company is its lack of a money-back guarantee. Without that, there’s no assurance that you’ll get your money back if things go wrong. It doesn’t have a free trial either to test it first before money comes in.

The company mentions that it has huge support database with plenty of step-by-step articles and videos on its web hosting pages. However, I searched and found none. Self-support will be harder without guides and you might have to contact support for almost every issue.

You can reach the support agents through email and phone. I sent it an email but didn’t get a reply.
