Kolido provides simple, inexpensive shared hosting plans with decent features. It’s a good choice for beginners with small websites, but pre-sales support could be better.

Overview

Kolido

Kolido is a web hosting brand of Kolido ISP SL Unipersonal, which is based in Tenerife, Spain. It has servers in Amsterdam, and it offers shared hosting, virtual servers, dedicated servers, reseller hosting, domain registration, and SSL services.

Kolido’s website is in German.

Features and Ease of Use

Although Kolido doesn’t offer anything new when it comes to web hosting, it does supply a good selection of useful shared hosting features, including:

  • 99% uptime guarantee
  • Daily backups
  • Flat rate traffic
  • Up to unlimited SQL databases
  • SSL certificates
  • PHP 5 to 7.2
  • One-click software installation
  • ClamAV virus scanner
  • ionCube and Zend Guard support
  • CGI, Perl & Python support

Kolido’s four levels of shared hosting are webStart, webProfi, webPremium, and webPower. The basic webStart plan is suitable for beginners and bloggers, and it comes with 1 GB web space, 1 domain name, and 1 SQL database. The webProfi and webPremium packages include more disk space (5 GB and 20 GB respectively) and a free SSL certificate. For up to 100 GB storage, unlimited SQL databases, and two IP addresses, you’ll need to look at the webPower package.

The one-click application installer helps you install all the popular web applications including WordPress, Drupal, Magento, Joomla, and more.

One downside of Kolido’s website is that it doesn’t provide much information about its infrastructure and data center. All I know is that there is a data center in Amsterdam that offers “a very good connection with low latency.”

Pricing and Support

Although Kolido’s shared hosting plans are pretty cheap, its dedicated server packages are somewhat expensive considering the limited features (particularly RAM and storage space). There is no money-back guarantee as far as I can see.

Since the website didn’t say much about Kolido as a company, and since the knowledge base is not much use, I took to the ticket support system to try to find out more. Maybe something was lost in translation, or maybe I was written off as not a serious sales prospect, but (either way) I found the support response to be bordering on rude:

Bottom line on Kolido

I would recommend Kolido for hosting newbies and small websites. Whereas I would rate it above average on pricing, I regard the pre-sales support as substandard.

Pros

  • Feature-rich plans
  • Affordable prices
  • 99% guaranteed uptime (although this is low)
  • Daily backups

Cons

  • Poor customer support
  • Website only in German

Cheap hosting is available at Kolido.
