Bottom line on Hukot

hukot1

Hukot is based in the Czech Republic and has been in business since 2005. They offer a wide variety of website hosting and server products that are suitable for personal and business websites alike. The standard web hosting is not just affordable but also offers excellent features including robust storage, unlimited bandwidth, and excellent security.

 

Features and Ease of Use

Hukot offers scalable website hosting with excellent features that include robust storage. Their basic features include the following:

  • From 2GB to unlimited storage
  • Unlimited bandwidth
  • Auto-installer for WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, and PrestaShop
  • Antivirus and antispam
  • Custom DNS management
  • Free website migrations

In addition to antivirus and antispam protection, you also get DDoS and firewall protection along with a nice array of value-added features.

  • PHP 5.2 – 7.1 supported
  • Free SSL certificates
  • Regular backups
  • Cron jobs supported
  • DDoS and Firewall protection

Plans come with at least weekly backups while their top plans have daily backups. Their free SSL certificates also include free renewals, which can save you $50 or more per year per domain.

Hukot plans are best suited for competent beginners and experienced webmasters. Their auto-installer is limited to the most popular website tools like WordPress. Otherwise, you will have to use cPanel to upload files. Most experienced webmasters will have little problems using the cPanel.

 

Pricing and Support

Hukot offers four website hosting packages. Below is a rundown of plan differences:

KlídečekNormálkaV pohoděHukot
Storage2GB6GBUnlimitedUnlimited
Domains12UnlimitedUnlimited
Mailboxes12UnlimitedUnlimited
BackupsWeeklyWeeklyDailyDaily
WAFNoNoYesYes

 

Each plan has excellent storage for the number of domains supported. The Klídeček and Normálka plans lack a WAF and are limited on mailboxes. The price difference between the Klídeček and Normálka plans and the V pohodě is so minimal that you’ll be best suited to start with V pohodě.

Hukot is the most expensive plan offered, although it is still very affordable. The main difference in Hukot and the other plans is you get a VIP cloud server for your PHP and databases.

One thing I like about this service is you get free SSL certificates automatically installed on all domains. They’re not just free for the first year but free for the life of your website. However, you don’t get a free domain name, so there will be an extra fee if you don’t already own your domain.

Hukot offers multiple options for support. They provide telephone support along with email and live chat support. However, they don’t list hours of operation for support, and when I attempted to reach them via live chat, they were offline. They presently don’t offer a knowledge base. There is a Wiki community page, but it is not active.

 

Summary

Hukot offers some of the most affordable standard website hosting services that I’ve seen. Most services that provide services this cheap are very limited in features. With Hukot, you get incredible features and the ability to host almost any form of website you can create.

Pros

  • Robust storage and unlimited bandwidth
  • Antivirus, antispam, DDoS, and Firewall protection
  • Free website migrations
  • Free SSL certificates
  • Their website is in English

Cons

  • Live chat is not 24/7
  • No free domain name
