HostPixal’s English-language website presents prices in U.S. dollars, but this website — or the underlying company — could be in transition. During the lifecycle of this review, its logo changed to one that reads “CloudServer”, even though the logos and names on the vendor’s social media pages stayed the same.
Features and Ease of Use
HostPixal offers three kinds of shared hosting — Shared Basic, Shared Plus, and Shared Prime — which differ in disk space and the number of hosted websites, domains/subdomains, and email accounts.
Whichever plan you pick, you will benefit from super-fast SSD storage and these features:
- 99.9% uptime guarantee
- cPanel control panel
- Softaculous installer
- SSD storage
- JetBackup backups
- DDoS protection
The popular and user-friendly cPanel control panel lets you manage all aspects of your hosting, including files, FTP accounts, email accounts, domains, and website backups. The companion Softaculous installer provides a library of hundreds of CMS and other programs such as WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, Magento, OpenCart, PrestaShop, Typo3, and phpBB.
Another useful feature is the Cron jobs that let you schedule scripts to run regularly rather than having to execute them manually every time.
Pricing and Support
HostPixal provides reasonably priced hosting subscriptions, and you can pay by PayPal or credit/debit card.
You can choose to be billed monthly, quarterly, semi-annually, annually, biennially, or triennially, but beware that the Shared Basic plan is only available on an annual basis. Unfortunately, there is no money-back guarantee as far as I know.
You should be able to contact this company by telephone, ticket, email, or live chat. I say “should” because I was unable to summon a pre-sales support response, which wouldn’t be so bad if the self-support knowledge base wasn’t so bare:
