Labina Hosting started its journey in Ankara (Turkey) in 2005. It offers a wide variety of hosting, including Linux and Windows shared hosting, reseller hosting, VPS, cloud servers, and dedicated servers, plus domain services, SSL certificates, and consultancy services.
The main website is in Turkish, but the WHMCS-powered client area supports twenty-five additional languages, including English.
Features and Ease of Use
Labina Hosting offers eight Linux shared hosting plans, eight Windows shared hosting plans, four hosting plans, three WordPress hosting plans, three Joomla hosting plans, three PrestaShop hosting plans, five corporate mail hosting plans, sixteen reseller hosting plans (eight each for Linux and Windows), four Linux VPS plans, four managed Linux VPS plans, and five dedicated server plans.
The individual shared Linux plans provide you with:
- CloudLinux infrastructure
- CentOS operating system
- WHM/cPanel control panel
- 500 MB to unlimited web space
- 1 GB to unlimited monthly traffic
- 1 to unlimited POP3 emails
- 1 to unlimited subdomains
- PHP 7
You get more than 300 one-click installation scripts for applications such as WordPress, OpenCart, PrestaShop, Drupal, and Joomla. You can also take advantage of the CMS and e-commerce optimized plans for WordPress and PrestaShop, and choose one of the SEO consultancy plans to improve your search engine ranking.
The VPS plans come with RAID storage which helps protect you against a data loss disaster by replicating information across multiple disks.
Pricing and Support

This company’s customer support team can be contacted by telephone, ticket, email, online contact form, live help, and even fax. The live help wasn’t available when I wanted to try it, and my contact form query received no response. Self-support comes in the form of a partially populated Turkish-language knowledge base:
