U.S. based web host, HostYD, offers shared Linux hosting with some plans including free SSL and domain. WordPress installation and customization services are available for an extra charge.

Overview

HostYD

Based in the U.S., HostYD is a web hosting provider offering shared Linux, VPS, and reseller hosting, as well as domain registration and SSL. Shared hosting plans include a free domain and SSL. Servers are in New Jersey, London, Sydney, Bulgaria, and Finland, and the website is in English.

Features and Ease of Use

HostYD

HostYD offers a few shared Linux hosting plans, some of which include a free domain and SSL certificate. Shared hosting plans feature:

  • Free domain with some plans
  • Free SSL with some plans
  • HDD or SSD
  • Free website transfer
  • 99.9% uptime
  • 30-day money-back guarantee
  • CloudFlare DDoS protection

The entry-level Starter plan includes 10GB HDD storage, 100GB monthly bandwidth, five email accounts, one database, and hosting for one website. This plan includes an SSL certificate but no free domain.

The second-tier, Advanced plan includes unmetered SSD storage, 500GB monthly bandwidth, hosting for up to six websites, unlimited email accounts, and unlimited databases. This plan does not come with a free SSL certificate or domain.

The top-level Ultra plan has the following: unlimited SSD storage, unlimited monthly bandwidth, unlimited databases, unlimited email accounts, and hosting for unlimited websites. This plan comes with a free SSL certificate and private nameservers. A free domain is also included with the annual subscription only.

Customers with a website currently hosted with another provider may be interested in HostYD’s free website migration service. This is included with either of the higher two hosting plans and is guaranteed to take less than 24 hours or the first year of hosting is free. Purchasers of the Advanced plan are allowed up to 20 full cPanel or Plesk migrations and Ultra plan customers up to 30 cPanel or Plesk migrations.

Customers using WordPress may find themselves having trouble with the installation or setup process. HostYD has special services to help customers in this situation; one-time and monthly WordPress services that can help with theme installation and setup, plugin installation and setup, WordPress development, WordPress troubleshooting, and a dedicated developer option.

Pricing and Support

Pricing for HostYD shared hosting plans is very affordable. The entry-level Starter plan costs less than a cup of coffee per month and includes a free SSL certificate. Compared to both U.S. and international providers, this is very cheap. Moving up to the Advanced and Ultra plans, the pricing remains below average. The Ultra plan is around 50%-100% less than many U.S. providers offering similar unlimited SSD plans. Add in the free domain, and this is even better value.

HostYD shared plans can be purchased semi-annually, annually, biennially, and triennially. Advanced and Ultra plans can also be paid for on a monthly basis, however no discount is given with the longer plans.

HostYD customer support is handled via live chat and ticketing and is available 24 hours a day. I reached out to support via live chat during the night, U.S. time, and spoke to someone immediately.

Good Support

Everything went very well, I select Advanced plan of their hosting. The support was always helpful and fast and I will always use HostYD because of good support, website speed and free SSL which is without any setup. I recommend HostYD to all who is going to start a website.

Bottom line on HostYD

HostYD offers value-priced shared Linux hosting based out of its New Jersey data center. Some plans include SSD, SSL, and a free domain with annual purchase. Customer support is available round-the-clock via live chat. On-demand WordPress service is also available for customers struggling with installation, setup, or customization.

Pros

  • Free SSL with some plans
  • Free domain with annual Ultra plan
  • SSD storage with some plans
  • 30-day money-back guarantee

Cons

  • No free domain with cheaper plans
  • Free SSL not included with mid-tier plan

Switch to fast and affordable hosting with HostYD
