HOSTSHIELD started out just over a year ago (at the time of writing this review), since when it has accumulated 250 active clients. Its resources are never oversold, and its pre-sales support seems to be responsive.

Overview

HOSTSHIELD

HOSTSHIELD LTD was officially launched in June 2018. It boasts 250 active clients around the world and 350 positive reviews (which is more than one per client). Its website is in English, but its presumably WHMCompleteSolution-powered shopping cart can be translated into 25 additional languages.

Features and Ease of Use

HOSTSHIELD offers three shared hosting plans, three reseller hosting plans, six VPS plans, ten dedicated servers, and ten game servers. The shared hosting plans provide you with:

  • 3 to 15 addon domains
  • 3 to 15 subdomains
  • 30 GB to unlimited storage space
  • Unlimited monthly bandwidth
  • Unlimited email accounts
  • Unlimited databases
  • Free SSL

The included Softaculous auto-installer lets you install many CMS and other popular applications with a single click. And when your website is live, it will be protected by a firewall.

This host makes a big thing about never overselling resources, so you get what you’ve paid for, and the industry average 99.9% uptime means your website should be available almost all the time.

HOSTSHIELD also offers a high-speed VPN plan with unlimited bandwidth in over thirty-two countries, which you can use to access geo-restricted content from almost anywhere in the world.

Pricing and Support

The shared hosting plans are cheap. You can pay for them in U.S. dollars or euros, on monthly or annual billing cycles, via various methods: PayPal, Mastercard/Visa, BitCoin, Western Union, Perfect Money, Skrill (formerly Moneybookers), or WebMoney. The 72-hour money-back guarantee gives you only three days to change your mind about the commitment you made.

You can contact this company via telephone, ticket, email, online contact form, or live chat. I got quick answers to my questions via the live chat channel:

It’s a good thing that the pre-sales support is so responsive because the self-support knowledgebase contains only two entries.
