With unmatched customer support and a number of feature-rich shared hosting packages and customizable dedicated servers, Hostwinds has curved a niche for themselves in a fast-changing hosting landscape. This American web hosting company was founded in 2010 and has offices located in Tulsa, Oklahoma, as well as Seattle, Washington.
Features and Ease of Use
Hostwinds offers some of the best-performing shared hosting servers and feature-packed plans I’ve seen so far. These are some of the features you get with their shared hosting:
- Softaculous app installer
- Free website transfers
- Latest version of cPanel
- Unlimited subdomains, FTP accounts, emails, and MySQL databases
- Free dedicated IP address
- Free SSL certificate
- Free domain with annual plans
- Weebly website builder
The dedicated IP address was definitely a nice perk — very rarely will you see a hosting provider offer this with their shared hosting packages. This dedicated IP address prevents some of the major downsides of shared hosting. For instance, there’ll be a lower likelihood of your email being marked as spam by recipient servers, better data security for your customers, and even the enablement of a few third-party apps that require it.
Even better: Hostwinds has gone above and beyond in offering their Business shared hosting customer base a 99.999% uptime guarantee. These plans — ideal for startups all the way to mid-sized companies — feature the LiteSpeed Web Server and operate up to 500% faster than their regular shared hosting packages.
If none of their shared hosting packages can accommodate your enterprise-scale operational needs, check out their dedicated servers instead. You get powerful machines with no restrictions on bandwidth in addition to geo-specific IP addresses and their trademark 99.999% uptime guarantee. Equipped with either SSD or Enterprise HDD storage, you can choose from several server series such as the E3-1270 v3, 2 x L5420, and 2 x 6272 that will ensure all the heavy traffic and workload of your website is handled smoothly. OS-wise, you have options such as Ubuntu, Windows Server 2016, CentOS, and Fedora. To top it all off, their technicians fully manage and fine-tune your servers for performance, so you’ll never have to worry about downtime.
If you’d rather have something that’s in between shared and dedicated hosting, take a look at their cloud hosting solutions. They are very secure and come with reliable SSD and HDD storage options. You can set up yours within minutes by selecting the OS of your choice and then deploying your server at the location of your choice. Other than the OS, you can also choose from a list of pre-installed apps or import some of your own templates when creating your cloud server. And so, in a matter of minutes, you can have your website or application up and running with no hassle at all.
Pricing and Support
While most companies in the industry overcharge their clients for substandard services and customer support, Hostwinds has consistently kept their prices low while at the same time delivering premium services. And to show just how confident they are about their products, they give you a refund within 60 days if you’re not satisfied with their services. This money back guarantee applies only to their shared, business, and reseller hosting services.
With 24/7 support, Hostwinds allows you to rest easy knowing help is just a phone call, email, or live chat away. You can also open a ticket and request for support. They have friendly technicians and system engineers who handle software upgrades, server maintenance, and hardware replacement in a timely manner.

Really nice place for hosting websites at
Hostwinds have been great. Been using them for a year now as shared linux hosting, super fast speeds, never an issue with connectivity and email has been flawless. Support has been great and all issues resolved within hours. Great host! Pricing is also very good. I have just taken a step further and signed up for one of their hosted servers. Is one of the most professional and engaging technical professionals I've dealt with in the past 10 years.
Oh! I was so sick of the hosting companies which always say what I could and couldn't do - I'd love my own server but can't afford at the moment - but I found Hostwinds company! Excellent deal! It's pretty cheap and I feel in control of all of this. Great service!
They are a premier web hosting provider
Uptime has been okay. What is so important is you always experience you are not alone dealing with customer or tech support. In minutes through their support ticket system, you will always receive the best attention. Hostwinds servers are so damn fast. Network is good and they offer nice free useful tools - a great plus for them.
The best and most reliable.
Hostwinds' services can be defined with one word, FAST! The speed of my websites have never been better, the service is fantastic. I never have to worry about my websites being slow or down time. Great service, great product. The best and most reliable.
You can't get any cheaper than Hostwinds!
You can't get any cheaper than Hostwinds! I like that I can access a load of services from one company, too, no need to ever go anywhere else. Great host with a wide range of services which are very important for running a web site successfully .
Affordable web hosting provider
Hostwinds is one of the best hosting platforms for beginners. Well, I have been using their service for 3 months now! Their services are amazing, especially the business one where you get unlimited everything + SSH access + 24/7 support. It's also friendly on the wallet, has excellent support, and isn't going to randomly go offline if your site gets more than 10 visits.
