LiquidNet is fine, but fine is not good enough. While LiquidNet is a decent web host, you can get better quality hosting at a cheaper price with Hostinger, for example.
LiquidNet is a web hosting service provider with multiple data centers, which give you the flexibility to decide where you want to host your site. Thanks to the company’s first–class datacenter facilities, you can enjoy hypersonic site loading times. Apart from its innovative, extremely fast, and risk-free shared website hosting plans, LiquidNet also offers VPS and dedicated hosting packages in addition to domain solutions and SSL certificates. The company’s website is available in four languages – English, French, Spanish, and Portuguese.
Features and Ease of Use
Four shared website hosting plans offer everything you might need, including:
- 99.9% guaranteed server uptime
- Stable Linux with Apache
- Unlimited disk space and traffic
- PHPMyAdmin and MySQL databases
- PostgreSQL databases and storage
- Free website templates
- One-click app installer
- Online website builder
- Dropbox backup
- VPN traffic (5GB)
- Shared SSL IPs
- SSD data caching
- ModSecurity Firewall
- SSL certificate generator
- ZFS storage
- Spam filters, anti-virus, and SPF protection
- Website accelerators
LiquidNet offers over 800 free website themes, which you can install from your web control panel with a single mouse click, thus getting your website up and running (with the easy website installer) in as little as five minutes. There’s also a web app installer on offer, which you can use for one-click installation of over forty widely used software applications.
The company has created an innovative platform for its shared website hosting plans, which is built atop a significantly altered version of SELinux (Security-Enhanced Linux). With this, LiquidNet has effectively reduced the chance of its platform being contaminated by a virus or any other spyware or adware to 0%. Chances of a hardware malfunction are further reduced as top-level hardware configuration and high-performing hardware parts are used to run everything.
LiquidNet’s all-embracing, point-and-click web control panel – Hepsia (that it has developed after investing hours of labor) makes site management faster and simpler compared to cPanel.
Since all shared web hosting servers of the company come fitted with SSDs, your website hosted with LiquidNet would open faster than those hosted on typical hard disks.
Since the company lets you choose pre-installed e-commerce applications (such as Magento, osCommerce, OpernCart, PrestaShop and Zen Cart) for its shared hosting plans, those planning to set up online stores can do so easily.
Pricing and Support
LiquidNet’s shared hosting plans are cheap. You can pay for these yearly plans in USD, EUR, GBP, AUD, and CAD via Visa, MasterCard, AMEX, Diner’s, or JCB cards, Skrill, and PayPal. If you’re unsure of making the long-term yearly commitment, the company’s 30-day free trial (with some service restrictions) should help you decide. The company also offers a 30-day money-back guarantee on its cloud hosting plans.
You can reach LiquidNet’s 24/7 customer support via phone, live chat, ticketing system, and an online contact form. I tried the live chat and got a quick reply.
Those looking to take care of stuff on their own can check the company’s FAQ section (which is available in the web control panel’s “Help” section, and needs you to log into your account), video overviews of its hosting services (somewhat similar to tutorials), and the web hosting terminology section.
