In business since the year 2000, Mango Hosting is a Mexican hosting provider that uses U.S. servers. It offers some good developer-friendly features, but watch out for the premium prices.

Overview

Mango Hosting

Since the year 2000, Mango Hosting has been providing Mexican website hosting, which sits on U.S. servers and which is sold from its Spanish-language website.

Although this provider doesn’t advertise how many customers it has, or where they are located, I can tell you that the company has between 11 and 50 employees. Mango Hosting has a passion for helping startups and entrepreneurs: it has sponsored some, provided free hosting for others, and has regularly attended startup events.

Features and Ease of Use

Mango Hosting sells the full range of services, from shared hosting and dedicated servers to domain names and SSL certificates. Here are some of the standard features you can expect to see:

  • Manual backups available
  • Domain registration (for purchase)
  • Unlimited website plans
  • Shared SSL certificates
  • Unlimited disk space
  • Unlimited MySQL databases

Beginner-friendly features include the easy-to-use Fantastico one-click installer that helps you install e-commerce tools (such as CubeCart and Zen Cart) to complement the pre-installed WordPress, Joomla, and Drupal CMS software.

More experienced website owners and developers get SSH access and Cron jobs to help them keep their websites running optimally. Coding support is provided for the PHP (only versions 4 and 5), Ruby on Rails, and Python programming languages.

Pricing and Support

Mango’s prices are surprisingly high and a little confusing. The apparently astronomical Mexican Peso prices are still quite shocking when converted into U.S. dollars.

You can purchase plans on terms ranging from one month to four years, with an okay discount for extending the term. You can cancel within the first month for a full refund, minus the cost of any software licenses, special components, or a domain name.

Although this provider advertises 24/7 customer support, its live chat popup prompted me to send an email when I tried it out of hours, but maybe you’ll have had better luck during business hours. If you’d like to try supporting yourself, you’ll find a decent set of guides and tutorials on Mango Hosting’s website:

Bottom line on Mango Hosting

Mango Hosting is an average host with a satisfactory feature set, but the prices are high for the service you get. If you’re looking for a Mexican host, this could be the one for you, but I’m somewhat skeptical about the 24/7 customer service promise.

Pros

  • Fantastico one-click installer
  • E-commerce features such as Zen Cart
  • Good developer-friendly features
  • Support for startups and entrepreneurs

Cons

  • Only version 4 and 5 of PHP
  • Higher-than-expected prices
