Macedonian hosting provider INHOST offers SSD-based hosting plans. Since its lower plans lack features, you’ll have to upgrade to make the most of this experienced host.

Overview

inhost-mk-mine

Macedonian website hosting provider INHOST was founded in 2002. It currently boasts more than 4800 hosted web pages, 6000 registered domains, and 7300 customers.

The INHOST website is available only in Macedonian.

Features and Ease of Use

INHOST supplies a full suite of website hosting services, one of which is the shared hosting that comes with the following core features:

  • 9% network stability
  • Free weekly backups
  • Free domain registration
  • Up to five add-on domains
  • Up to 5 GB SSD disk space
  • Up to 300 GB monthly bandwidth

The shared hosting plans use SSD storage (for data read/write speeds up to ten times faster than HDD) in RAID 10 configuration (so that your data is duplicated to guard against disk failure).

Expert website owners benefit from all the usual scripting and databases features such as FTP access, MySQL databases, and a PHP selector (not included in the base plan).

Beginners will be pleased to see cPanel as the control panel, a one-click installer for more than 300 programs, and website building tool (which is not included in the base plan).

Shared hosting plans give you “99.9% network stability” whereas cloud hosting plans benefit from a “99.9% uptime guarantee. These different wordings may well mean exactly the same thing.

Pricing and Support

INHOST’s prices are in line with similar shared hosting companies. Shared hosting plans are only available on one-year terms, and (unlike dedicated server plans) you don’t get the money-back guarantee that would get you out within the first month if anything went wrong.

One of my bugbears when purchasing shared hosting is being up-sold additional services at the checkout; especially ‘support’ which I think should be free. In this case, you are up-sold an SSL certificate and priority support at the checkout.

24/7 customer service can be accessed by email, telephone, and ticket. I was rewarded with an error when I tried to make contact via the online contact form:

inhost-mk-support

Since I couldn’t get the contact form to work, I sent an email instead; and received no reply.

Although this provider’s website includes links to live chat (in the header) and tutorials (in the footer), none of these links were operational when I tried. It is possible to access a knowledge base if you first navigate to the client area, for example by clicking the ‘Promotions’ link, but it contains only 21 articles (all in Macedonian).

Bottom line on Inhost MK

INHOST has been providing website hosting with SSD storage since 2002. Its lower tier plans don’t include many value-added features, so you need to upgrade to a top-tier plan for PHP support or a website building tool.

Pros

  • Website building tool
  • Support for all the usual hosting features
  • 24/7 customer service (apparently)
  • Money-back guarantee on dedicated servers

Cons

  • No response from support
  • Error when I tried to send an email

Make the most of your Macedonian hosting with Inhost MK!
