Malaysia-based KL Server Studio provides domain registration services, premium web hosting, email hosting, VPS, reseller packages, and dedicated servers at fair prices. Their customers enjoy DDoS protection and access to feature-rich hosting packages that are powered by servers in the U.S., Europe, and Malaysia.
Features and Ease of Use
All of their shared packages and business hosting packages come with ample storage and bandwidth to meet all of your personal or business needs. Some of their key features include:
- cPanel/Plesk control panel
- Domain registration and transfer
- Unlimited email accounts
- Unlimited monthly transfer
- Free SSL certificate
- Website auto installer
- Latest MySQL/PHP 7
- CGI Support: Perl, Python, Ruby
- 99.9% server uptime
KL Server Studio gives its customers two options to build their websites. They can either use the free website builder with a simple drag-and-drop interface or the Softaculous one-click app installer with popular web apps such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart, phpBBM Magento, Concrete5, and 50 other open source scripts. Accessible from the control panel, both are good for starters with little or no coding knowledge or experience.
When it comes to website security and data protection, KL Server Studio leaves nothing to chance. I feel they’re much better prepared to deal with malicious attacks than most of the Malaysian hosting services. They offer customers with business hosting accounts DDoS protection and access to a virus & malware code scanner, which lets them uncover and sanitize hidden malicious code in their files.
You shouldn’t have problems administering your hosting account or managing your websites as their hosting packages come with either Plesk (Windows) and cPanel (Linux) control panels. Both are packed with lots of user-friendly features that will enable you to create your website, emails, and databases besides managing and securing them. My only concern is that SSH and Remote MYSQL connections are not allowed for security reasons.
Pricing and Support
KL Server Studio joins the list of Malaysian hosting providers who offer low-cost web hosting packages and SSD-powered VPS. With their business hosting, you get a lot more features for their quarterly, semi-annual, or annual plans than you would with an average hosting company. Free domains are available with any of the high-level plans. All new customers enjoy free hosting account setup on all plans. It’s also nice to see they don’t have hidden fees.
Support is available via multiple channels. Live chat operators can assist you with website migration, DNS settings, or server configuration, though you also have the option to open an online ticket with support or call/ SMS their telephone support staff for assistance. Many of their customers are happy with their response times and their level of dedication when resolving hosting issues.
