LowcHost is an Israeli website hosting company that offers quality shared hosting services with strong security. Their WordPress hosting services are worth checking out and are generally cheaper than their standard hosting.


Overview

lowchost mainLowcHost has been providing affordable website hosting solutions since 2015. Their focus is primarily on an Israeli customer base, and they presently host over 1,000 websites. Their shared hosting services are great for those looking for a host with strong security. If you plan to host a WordPress website, their WordPress hosting plans may be a better value than their standard hosting.

Features and Ease of Use

LowcHost - feature

LowcHost offers a variety of shared hosting plans with solid features that are suitable for personal and small business websites. Check out the basic features available on all plans:

  • SSD storage
  • Unlimited domains
  • Unlimited bandwidth
  • Softaculous auto-installer
  • Unlimited databases

Their basic features are above average for the Israeli market: few providers would offer SSD storage, unlimited add-on domains, and unlimited traffic on Israel-based servers. You likely won’t be able to host multiple media-heavy websites on anything but their Unlimited package though.

But what really set them apart are their advanced features. All plans come with a 99.9% uptime guarantee and the following:

  • Cloudflare CDN
  • Free SSL certificates
  • Application firewall
  • Daily backups
  • Imunify360 protection

In addition to the Cloudflare CDN and an application firewall to both speed up and protect your servers, you get Imunify360 protection that includes intrusion detection, malware protection, and even reputation management that will monitor your website to see if it is on any blacklists. If you’re looking for a host with strong security, this is one to put on your shortlist.

LowcHost makes it easy to build your website using either cPanel access and their Softaculous auto-installer that comes with hundreds of apps, including WordPress. They don’t offer a website builder, so there will be a slight learning curve for beginners.

Pricing and Support

LowcHost offers three primary cloud-based shared hosting plans with the features listed above. Besides pricing, the only differences in plans are in storage, processors, and memory as defined below:

BeginnersWordPressUnlimited
Storage1.5GB SSD3GB SSDUnlimited SSD
Number of Processors1 x 2.6GHz Intel E52 x 2.6GHz Intel E52 x 2.6GHz Intel E5
Memory1GB Flash MemoryFlash Memory

I’m not a fan of the amount of storage on either the Beginners or the WordPress plan. The Unlimited plan is much better for those hosting multiple websites. Also, the Unlimited plan offers a private IP address for free.

These plans are very reasonably priced, especially considering you get free Comodo SSL certificates. If you plan to use WordPress for your domain, check out LowcHost’s WordPress hosting packages. Here’s a breakdown of their plans:

BeginnersAdvancedProfessional
Storage5GB10GBUnlimited
Number of Hosted Sites123
Number of Processors1 x 2.6GHz Intel E51 x 2.6GHz Intel E52 x 2.6GHz Intel E5
Memory1GBFlash3GB

It’s a bit odd that you get more storage with these plans than for their standard hosting, but it is more than adequate for most websites. These plans are also very affordable with the Beginners and Professional plans cheaper than the comparable Cloud-based shared hosting plans. The Advanced WordPress plan is slightly pricier than its Cloud counterpart though. All plans come with a 30-day money back guarantee.

Support for these products is somewhat lacking. They only offer an online contact form and Tawk.to messaging. There’s a knowledge base, but it’s not as comprehensive as I’d like and will likely only answer your most basic questions. Phone support and live chat would improve their support dramatically.

אחלה אחסון

אחלה אחסון שירות טוב וזמין, מסבירים מה שצריך ומשתדלים כמה שיותר לפתור בעיות. גם בשעות לא שגרתיות תמיד שמחים לעזור. האתרים עובדים במהירות ואני סך הכל מאוד מרוצה שעברתי אליהם לאחר מספר חברות שהיו אכזבה גדולה שווה כל שקל, הממשק יכול להיות טיפה יותר עדכני.

Bottom line on LowcHost

LowcHost sets themselves apart from other providers by focusing on providing strong security and affordable WordPress hosting solutions. Throw in their free Comodo SSL certificates and a private IP for Unlimited plans and they are a host worth investigating further.

  • Unlimited bandwidth
  • Softaculous auto-installer
  • Free SSL certificates
  • Imunify360 protection

Cons
