Reviews and expert opinion Kind TechGroup

Although Kind TechGroup looks like a separate provider of free hosting plans, its “premium hosting” link leads to iFastNet. If you look closely, Kind TechGroup’s browser tab reads “iFastNet Premium Hosting | Host – Kind TechGroup,” so it looks like they could be the same company.


Overview

Kind TechGroupKind TechGroup offers free WordPress hosting, web design, and managed solutions to help aspiring webmasters pursue their ambitions of creating a professional web presence. Its English-language website also sells VPS and reseller solutions to customers all around the world.

Features and Ease of Use

Kind TechGroup

The web hosting solutions include these features as standard:

  • Unlimited HDD storage (with SSD caching)
  • Latest MariaDB / MySQL databases
  • File manager
  • PHP version 7 support
  • Two-factor authentication
  • cPanel control panel (WHM with reseller accounts)
  • Softaculous installer

Security features include the Cloudflare CDN (which improves page loading speeds as well a protecting against cyberattacks), anti-DDoS protection, free Let’s Encrypt SSL certificates, two-factor authentication, and virus/malware scanners. The safety of your data is further assured by the free remote backup and retention services that take backups every two days.

Virtual servers use KVM virtualization technology. Although data is stored on HDD storage rather than far faster SSD storage, you do benefit from SSD caching for improved performance.

Pricing and Support

Apart from its free plans, Kind TechGroup’s web hosting offerings are quite expensive (even with discount coupons), and you also have to pay a setup fee. You can choose add-ons at the checkout, including CodeGuard website backups and SiteLock security.

You can pay in U.S. dollars or other currencies (British pounds, euros, or Philippine pesos) on monthly, quarterly, semi-annual, annual, biennial, or triennial billing cycles. However, when you click the link, it takes you to the iFastNet website to purchase the premium plan.

Although Kind TechGroup promises a high uptime guarantee, there is no uptime guarantee, but there is a server monitoring service. You get a 14-day money-back guarantee, which is only half the “get out” time afforded by many other hosting providers.

There is no telephone or email support as far as I can see, but you can contact the company via a contact form, ticket system, or Facebook Messenger. The bad news is that my test support ticket received no response. The self-support resources include a blog, support forums, and a knowledge base.

Great Tech Group KindTechGroup

Kind TechGroup, is a great company. I am not the easiest of customers and sometimes require patience; Kind Techgroup basically held my hand through the process of answering my questions and ensuring that my service was complete without delay. The communication was responsive and immediate. This is what you want in back-end support. I look forward to a positive and successful future. Go KindTechGroup

Bottom line on Kind TechGroup

On the one hand, Kind TechGroup advertises free web hosting. On the other hand, it advertises high-price premium hosting plans that are available via an affiliated provider.

Pros

  • HDD storage boosted by SSD caching
  • Virtual servers use KVM virtualization technology
  • Advanced security tools, including Cloudflare CDN and DDoS protection
  • Free remote backup and retention services

Cons

  • Pay-for web hosting plans are pricey
  • Links to another provider for premium plans

For free or premium web hosting, checkout out Kind TechGroup.
