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:
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 priciest plan available, although it remains highly affordable. The main distinction between Hukot and the other plans is that it offers a VIP cloud server exclusively 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.
