Liveinhost entered the hosting industry in 2015. This company serves customers in over 100 countries from several global data centers across five continents. It offers SSD and cPanel shared hosting, reseller hosting, VPS, and dedicated hosting along with domain registration and transfer. You can also get website development services for static, dynamic, and e-commerce websites.
This host’s website is in English. There is a drop-down list of countries, but I’m not sure what difference this makes since it doesn’t change the language or currency. Another issue with the website is that it contains some dummy text, which doesn’t inspire confidence.
Features and Ease of Use
Liveinhost offers eight shared hosting plans (four SSD and cPanel), four reseller hosting plans, eight VPS plans (four each for SSD, Cloud Series, and Hybrid HDD Series), and eight dedicated hosting plans. The cPanel shared hosting plans provide you with:
- Hosting for 1 to 250 hosted websites
- Servers powered by Intel Xeon CPUs
- 10 GB to 1 TB HDD storage
- 100 GB to unlimited bandwidth
- 10 to unlimited databases and FTP accounts
- 10 to unlimited email accounts
- Free SSL
- Free backup
These plans come with the Softaculous one-click installer, which you can use to install more than 400 applications like Joomla, WordPress, and Magento. You also get a free PHP selector that lets you choose your preferred PHP version, plus free website migration from your existing host.
You can enjoy better performance with the SSD storage that is offered on the shared, reseller, and VPS hosting plans; and the SoftRAID RAID 10 protects you against disk failure. Alternatively, the SSD hybrid drives improve performance by merging traditional HDD storage with SSD caching.
You can scale up from shared hosting to a VPS (with full root access) or a dedicated server (with DDoS protection).
Liveinhost assures 100% network availability and provides a 99.9% uptime guarantee.
Pricing and Support
Liveinhost’s cPanel shared hosting plans are cheap, and you can save even more money by choosing a long-term billing cycle rather than paying monthly. For example, the price of an annual plan equates to about ten months. The 30-day money-back guarantee (excluding domain fees) should make you feel better about making an annual commitment.
Pay for plans in U.S. dollars or Indian rupees via PayPal or your credit/debit card.
Liveinhost provides 24/7 customer support via live chat and support ticket, plus pre-sales support via an online contact form. Live chat wasn’t available when I wanted to try it, but my contact form submission was answered in about six hours:
For self-support, you’ll be disappointed to discover that this provider’s knowledge base contains only two entries.
