French hosting provider Host's Book offers affordable hosting packages with offshore options. It's a pity that the support seems to be poor.

Overview

hostsbook mainSince starting its journey in 2016, Host’s Book has provided reliable hosting solutions to clients across the globe. According to its website, this French company has hosted over 2,850 hosted websites for more than 1,850 clients.

Host’s Book’s bouquet of services includes shared hosting, cloud VPS, dedicated servers, reseller hosting, and domain services. Its website is in English.

Features and Ease of Use

Host’s Book

Host’s Book offers 6 shared hosting packages (including cheap and offshore options), 14 cloud VPS packages (including OpenVZ, KVM, and Xen options), 9 dedicated server packages, and 3 reseller hosting packages.

The cheap shared hosting packages include:

  • 1 GB to 5 GB storage
  • 100 GB to 500 GB bandwidth
  • 1 to 2 domains

Host’s Book uses SSD storage for faster performance and higher reliability than traditional HDD storage. And it provides the cPanel control panel to administer all aspects of your hosting.

The offshore shared hosting packages include an SSL certificate to secure your internet communications and give confidence to your customers or other visitors.

VPS packages come with three kinds of virtualization technologies, so you can choose the OpenVZ old kernel version or the more modern KVM or Xen.

Although it’s not mentioned on the product pages, Host’s Book’s home page alludes to a 99.9% uptime guarantee.

Pricing and Support

Host’s Book

As the name suggests, Host’s Book’s “cheap shared hosting packages” are pretty affordable.

Billing cycles are monthly, quarterly, semi-annual, annual, biennial, or triennial, but the available billing cycles depend on the plan you pick. You can benefit from some significant discounts with some billing cycles on some plans, and you can pay in U.S. dollars by Perfect Money, WebMoney, Skrill, Neteller, or Bitcoin.

The seven-day refund policy is shorter than the 30 days “change your mind” time you get with many other hosts.

Host’s Book’s 24/7 support should be available by telephone, ticket, contact form, email, or live chat. However, my contact form submission seemed to fall on deaf ears. This wouldn’t be so bad if there were sufficient self-support resources, but the knowledge base contains only one entry:
