Hungarian web hosting provider Magyar Hosting is based in Budapest. It offers several GDPR-compliant hosting plans with plenty of performance-enhancing features, but I'd feel better if I'd been able to summon some pre-sales support.

Overview

magyarhosting main

Magyar Hosting is a small hosting company that simply isn’t a match for big brands like Hostinger. The bigger hosting companies simply offer a better price for similar configuration.

Since “Magyar Hosting” translates into English as “Hungarian Hosting,” you won’t be surprised to hear that this is a Hungarian hosting provider. It offers a wide a variety of GDPR-compatible web hosting plans such as shared web hosting, reseller hosting, VPS (SSD and HDD), colocation, and dedicated server hosting plans. You can also get domain registration, domain reselling, SSL certificates, website maintenance, Cloudflare plans, SEO, and online marketing services.

Magyar Hosting’s website supports Hungarian, but some sections (such as the shopping cart and the knowledge base) also support English.

Features and Ease of Use

Magyar Hosting offers a total of 27 shared hosting plans under different headings such as “General Hosting” (including a free plan and an email hosting plan) and “Website Hosting” (including popular CMS and e-commerce engines). You can also find VPS plans, reseller plans, colocation services, and dedicated servers. The four general hosting plans (Start, Business Base, Business Standard, and Business Premium) provide you with:

  • cPanel control panel
  • 250 MB to 10,000 MB web space
  • Unlimited data traffic
  • 1 to 5 MySQL databases
  • 1 to 25 email accounts
  • 1 to 10 FTP users
  • PHP support
  • Daily, weekly, and monthly backups

The Installatron application installer helps you install several popular web programs — forums, CMS systems, online stores, and more — with just a few clicks.

The Cloudflare and Railgun technologies make your website faster and more secure, and the SSD storage provides faster performance and greater reliability than traditional HDDs. Magyar Hosting has recently raised the performance bar even higher by using the fastest NVMe SSDs, and reliability is increased thanks to the RAID technologies that help protect you against disk failure.

The KVM VPS allows you to run a unique kernel due to complete hardware virtualization. With the VPS, you get a 100% resource guarantee and 99.9% SLA-backed availability.

Pricing and Support

Magyar Hosting

Magyar Hosting’s shared hosting plans are priced competitively. You can pay for them in Hungarian forints on billing cycles from annual to triennial via PayPal, credit/debit cards, or bank transfer. The Unlimited and Huge storage hosting plans come with a free domain if you sign up for at least a year.

Although there is no money-back guarantee as far as I can see, you do get a 14-day cooling-off period to change your mind.

You can contact the 24/7 customer support team via telephone, ticket, email, fax, online form, or live chat, but my support ticket submissions received no responses. For self-support, you can turn to the surprisingly well-stocked knowledge base.

Bottom line on Magyar Hosting

For competitively priced Hungarian hosting, you could turn to Magyar Hosting. However, I’d feel a bit better about this company if I was able to contact its customer support team.

Magyar Hosting might offer a good service at a reasonable price, but does it match up with the top web hosting companies? We find it hard to say “yes.”

Pros

  • A wide range of hosting plans
  • Free domain
  • 99.9% SLA-backed availability (for VPS plans)
  • Competitive pricing for entry-level plans

Cons

  • No money-back guarantee
  • Unreachable customer support
