Letout Pakistan’s website (or websites) are confusing, to say the least, which may be because there is still some work in progress. Prices are displayed in Pakistani rupees.
Features and Ease of Use
Letout Pakistan offers an impressive set of 50 Linux-based shared hosting plans with disk space ranging from 1 GB to 50 GB, depending on your subscription. The shared hosting plans provide you with:
- 99.9% guaranteed uptime
- SSD storage
- cPanel control panel
- Free SSL certificate
- Daily backups
- Unlimited bandwidth
- PHP support
- Unlimited MySQL databases
- Cron jobs
- Unlimited FTP and email accounts
As listed, Letout Pakistan offers pretty much everything you need to set up a web presence, but some of its features deserve highlighting: 100% pure SSD storage (which is faster and more reliable than HDD storage), daily backups (to safeguard your data), and free SSL (to secure your site).
Hosting plans are administered via the popular cPanel control panel that lets you manage all aspects of your hosting, and phpMyAdmin helps you manage your MySQL databases.
Some of the let-downs of Letout Pakistan are the lack of SSH access, a CDN, or free domains.
Pricing and Support
Letout Pakistan’s price list is pretty attractive to those on a tight budget. There is no free trial (to try before you buy), and no money-back guarantee (in case you change your mind), but you can get a refund if you face unresolved technical issues.
My main cause for concern is this company’s purchase process. The vendor’s main website lists cPanel hosting plans, but with no buttons to buy them. Clicking the “Domains” menu item leads to a second website where you can apparently purchase some hosting plans. This is not only confusing for potential customers, but also for the support staff, one of whom advised me that the second site is only for domain sales.
Let me try to resolve this for you. You can purchase a plan by following the registration steps on the main website. If this doesn’t work, the support staff can send you a link to a shopping cart containing four preset plans. If you want a different amount of disk space, you can contact the support team to add the desired amount, or so they say.
You can make contact — and you will probably need to — via telephone, email, live chat, or WhatsApp. On the plus side, I enjoyed a very comprehensive (though slightly confusing) conversation with a live chat agent, which can be summarised with:
Other support resources include a comprehensive knowledge base and remote assistance via TeamViewer.
